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.

    Mr. Heitman's Wonderful World of Disney
    Biography of Walt Disney.

  • His ambulance was covered from stem to stem, not with stock camouflage, but with drawings and cartoons.

  • After the war, Walt returned to Kansas City, where he began his career as an advertising cartoonist.

  • Here, in 1920, he created and marketed his first original animated cartoons, and later perfected a new method for combining live-action and animation.

  • Mickey Mouse was created in 1928, and his talents were first used in a silent cartoon entitled "Plane Crazy." However, before the cartoon could be released, sound burst upon the motion picture screen.

  • Thus Mickey made his screen debut in "Steamboat Willie, " the world's first fully-synchronized sound cartoon, which premiered at the Colony Theatre in New York on November 18, 1928.
