Goofy has been friends with Mickey Mouse since 1932..... what is Goofy, well he is basically a dog, but unlike Pluto he can walk on two legs and can talk. Originally call DIPPY DAWG he went from being a back ground character to become one of the major Disney Stars. His name Goofy is thought to be a nickname, and Goofus D Dawg his real name.
He may come across as a bit of a dim wit, but this is his charm, he can and is very bright, but his ungainly body sometimes is hard for him to control. Mind over matter comes to mind.
Here is Buddy doing his best to look like Disney star himself
