Walt Disney Records: Bio of Goofy
Disney's very own biography of Goofy.

  • Walt Disney Records: Biography of Goofy For more than 60 years, Goofy -- the awkward, toothy, curious, and good-spirited Everyman of the Disney cartoon characters -- has been a top performer in every medium, beginning with a bit part in a Disney short, and eventually becoming a major media star in print, television, theme parks, and a variety of merchandise.

  • Walt often described the type of physical humor used in the Walt Disney Studio's cartoons as being "goofy, " and with Orphan's Benefit (1934), that name officially stuck to this affable character.

  • But Goofy's personality really began to take shape in the 1935 cartoon Moving Day , in which animator Art Babbitt built up Goofy's role and gave his character definition.

  • The second half of the 1930s was the golden age of Disney cartoon shorts, as the Studio reached unprecedented achievements in personality animation.

  • Cartoon shorts such as Lonesome Ghosts , Clock Cleaners, Boat Builders , Mickey's Service Station , and Mickey's Trailer looked at how each character reacted to similar circumstances.

  • It is perhaps for this series of nearly two dozen cartoons that Goofy's film career is most fondly remembered.

  • As the Walt Disney Studios ceased regular production of short cartoons in 1956, the classic cartoon characters were getting a new lease on life from the very medium that led to the end of theatrical shorts -- television.

  • Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy could be seen regularly through the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s on several Disney television shows, including "The Mickey Mouse Club, " as well as "Disneyland" and its successors, "Walt Disney Presents, " "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, " and "The Wonderful World of Disney." Some of the episodes featured Goofy's classic cartoon appearances in newly created story frameworks, including "The Goofy Success Story" and "Holiday for Henpecked Husbands." Along with the rest of "the gang, " Goofy has been an integral part of The Disney Channel since its inception in 1983.

    Biography from the massive 'toon reference.

  • Not only does he have seniority over Bugs (his first cartoonbeing Porky's Duck Hunt (Avery, 1937), coming a few yearsbefore A Wild Hare ), but the little black duck hasdemonstrated an amazing range, thanks to the fact that he was directedby a wide variety of WB directors.

  • From the wild hoo-hoo hysteria ofBob Clampett (e.g., The Daffy Doc ), the shifty-eyed schemingof Chuck Jones (best exemplified by the so-called Hunters Trilogy, q.v.), and a range of superb Freleng, Tashlin and McKimson cartoons inthe middle (and even a few of the better McCabe cartoons), Daffy hasproven to be one of the most enduring characters in the WB stable.Avery may have created the character, but it was Clampett who put thecharacter on the map, and each of his colleagues added to thecomplexity of Daffy.

  • Dalton's best-known cartoonwith Hardaway is Hare-Um Scare-Um (1939), featuring an earlyversion of Bugs Bunny.

  • Dalton also teamed up with Cal Howard todirect two cartoons, Porky's Phoney Express and A Lad InBagdad (both 1938).

    A GIANT Among Animators
    Rob Blackwelder interviews "Iron Giant" director, Brad Bird, for Spliced Online.

  • A 'GIANT' AMONG ANIMATORS Rob Blackwelder/SPLICED SPLICEDwire interviewed Brad Bird on July 19, 1999 in San Francisco Link to: Boyish director Brad Bird celebrates the silly and serious sides of cartoons with his brilliant feature debut Brad Bird looks a little like a cartoon.

  • That lead to "The Critic, " a short-lived but deliciously droll and, again, visually unique television cartoon.

  • A fresh, funny and extraordinary movie called it is the first legitimate challenger ever for Disney's feature cartoon crown.

  • Not only is it a visual masterpiece with joyously cartoony style that evokes subconscious memories of classic Warner shorts and boasts a hero that is an ingenious, post-war comic book amalgam of gears and armor plating, with friendly, headlamp eyes and the demeanor of a lost puppy.

  • It's so joyously cartoony -- and I love that! Bird: The thing that I've always responded to in animation is caricature.

  • Look at the level of violence in any given Bugs Bunny cartoon and compare it to the nastiest Disney bit.

  • monsterfink writes: Bugs would kick Mickey butt so bad the Mouse would never be the same again, and then he'd let Daffy work over that speech impaired sailor Donald Caine, the betrayer writes: The mouse and his little crew of cartoon comrades don't stand a chance! Disney cartoons are too lame and "pc" to use any type of violence.

  • schultztown USA writes: If you ever really watch the old cartoons, it's fairly obvious who would win.
