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.

  • Five years later they developed the soon to be famous Mickey Mouse who was featured in Steamboat Willie, the first cartoon with synchronized sound.

  • The mid-1930’s ushered in color in the cartoons with such hits as Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy.

    Walt Kelly
    An illustrated biography, including his early work as well as the comic strip Pogo.

  • Other, more recognizable influences were, animated cartoons, and the often overlooked Dan Noonan.

  • The issues of these comics from the early 1940's are treasure troves of cartooning at its finest.

  • In 1947, he brought his talent to the book world with the Complete Nursery Song Book and in 1948 "Pogo" began to appear in the New York Star , for whom Kelly served as Art Director and Political Cartoonist.

  • (Note in the two panels at left that the Deacon's speech lettering echoes the early Disney cartoon above.) This was followed in 1966 by my favorite, The Pogo Poop Book , loaded with original material and even featuring a beautiful story, Mouse Into Elephant , done in pencil (featuring a mouse named Gnot-Even - if you had ever wondered where that came from).

  • Sometimes the "Pogo" strip would be more biting than the editorial cartoons, but somehow Kelly always managed to insert a joke or an insightful turn of a phrase at the end of each strip.

    Hurter, Albert (1883-1942)
    An illustrated biography.

  • He came to America in 1913 or 1914 and by 1915 was firmly ensconced in the fledgling animation industry doing Mutt & Jeff cartoons for Barre-Bowers in New York.

  • Hurter could draw, draw quickly, understood movement and had a playful, often surrealistic approach to cartooning.

  • Certainly the actual animated cartoons display his creativity, but isolating his exact contributions can be tricky.

  • This excellent book feature chapters on all of the "Inspirational Sketch Artists" including Ferdinand Horvath, , James Bodrero, , Bianca Majolie, Sylvia Moberly-Holland, Mary Blair, Tyrus Wong, David Hall, Eyvind Earle, Ken Anderson and an entire chapter on the artists creating the inspirations for today's Disney cartoons.

    Walt Kelly
    Biography and appreciation of Kelly's work, including the Pogo comic strip.

  • Walter Crawford Kelly (1913-73) American cartoonist, whose best-known creation Pogo made its first appearance in the late 1940s.

  • After graduation in 1930 he worked as a journalist and cartoonist at the Post.

  • He worked at almost every job in the art and editorial departments and eventually he drew editorial cartoons.

  • Its story, called 'Albert Takes the Cake', was the basis for Pogo , and started "Once there was a big old alligator named Albert who loved chocolate cake..." The cartoon depicted the adventures of Bumbazine, the black little boy of the title, who lived in the Okefenokee swamp in the company of his pet alligator.

  • In 1948 he was hired to draw political cartoons for the New York Star , a new liberal and short-lived advertising-free paper.

  • In 1952 Kelly was named "cartoonist of the year".

  • A mock presidential bid by Pogo grew into literary event when the writer proclaimed "I Go Pogo!" Two years later Kelly was elected president of the National Cartoonist Society.

  • However, he was the first strip cartoonist to be invited to contribute originals to the Library of Congress.

  • In 1969 a Pogo animated cartoon was shown on TV.

  • Comparable philosophical juxtapositions has been widely used in cartoons, as in Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes or in Charles Schulz's Peanuts .

    Animated Films
    Extensive history of family-oriented animated movies from silents to present day.

  • Historically and technically, the first short, animated film (in other words, the first fully-animated film ever made) was Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906) by newspaper cartoonist J.

  • Winsor McCay ("America's Greatest Cartoonist") New York Herald comic-strip animator and sketch artist Winsor McCay (1869-1934) produced a string of comic strips from 1904-1911, his three best being Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend , Little Sammy Sneeze , and Little Nemo in Slumberland (from October 15, 1905 to July 23, 1911).

  • Although McCay wasn't the first to create a cartoon animation, he nonetheless helped to define the new industry.

  • His first prominent, successful and realistic cartoon character or star was a brontosaurus named Gertie in Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) (with 10, 000 drawings, backgrounds included), again presented as part of his act.

  • In fact, McCay created the "interactive" illusion of walking into the animation by first disappearing behind the screen, reappearing on-screen!, stepping on Gertie's mouth, and then climbing onto Gertie's back for a ride - an astonishing feat! Some consider it the first successful, fully animated cartoon - it premiered in February 1914 at the Palace Theatre in Chicago.

  • And John Randolph Bray's first animated film, The Artist's Dream(s) (1913) (aka The Dachshund and the Sausage) , the first animated cartoon made in the U.S.

  • Originated by young animator Otto Messmer, the (unnamed) cat's first two cartoons were the five-minute Feline Follies (1919) and Musical Mews (1919) , when Felix was known only as "Master Tom." Feline Follies was a segment of the Paramount Magazine , a semi-weekly compilation of short film segments that included animated cartoons.
