In the early years of the character, Goofy appeared only as part of a trio with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. He finally received his own series of short films in the 1940s. Goofy had his own cartoon series "Goof Troop" in the 1990s that focused on Goofy and his son, Max. The series spun off two full-length movies featuring the duo. Goofy and Max also appear in several Disney holiday specials.

Goofy is known for his good-natured and friendly personality. He is unusually clumsy, which is often portrayed as a running gag in television shows and films. His unbreakable spirit serves as a foil to some of the villainous characters in the series, such as his neighbor Pete in "Goof Troop." No matter how Pete tries to cause trouble for Goofy and Max, Goofy never gives up, and always seems to come out on top.

In his television series, Goofy is portrayed as a single father. However, in "An Extremely Goofy Movie," the character is given a love story, and at the end, he begins a relationship with librarian Sylvia Marpole. In addition, on the series "House of Mouse," Goofy seems to have a crush on Clarabelle Cow.
