Learn how to draw a great looking Goofy with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions, and video tutorial.
By following the simple steps, you too can easily draw a beautiful Goofy.
Goofy made his cartoon debut in 1932 in Mickey's Review. This classic character is an anthropomorphic dog and a friend of Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse. He is good-natured but clumsy and accident-prone - thus his name.
Did you know? Goofy's name was originally Dippy Dawg. He was intended only for one animated short, but was such a popular character that by 1939, he starred in his own series.
In the years since, Goofy has starred and appeared in countless movies and animated series. In fact, he was the first classic character to star in a feature-length film, A Goofy Movie.

During the 1950s, Goofy was reinvented to represent suburban fatherhood. He had a wife and was often referred to as "George Geef."
This familial theme was further expounded on in the 1990s series Goof Troop, in which he was a single parent with a teenaged son named Max.
