Goof Troop is an American animated television series and sitcom produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. The series focuses on the relationship between single father Goofy and his son, Max, as well as their neighbor Pete and his family. Created by Robert Taylor and Michael Peraza Jr.,[1][2] the main series of 65 episodes aired in first-run syndication from 1992 to 1993 on The Disney Afternoon programming block, while an additional thirteen episodes aired on Saturday mornings on ABC.[3] A Christmas special was also produced and aired in syndication in late 1992.[4]

Walt Disney Pictures produced two spin-off films from the television series: the theatrical A Goofy Movie, released on April 7, 1995, and direct-to-video sequel An Extremely Goofy Movie, released on February 29, 2000.


Goof Troop is similar to several early-1950s Goofy cartoon shorts that depicted Goofy as the father of a mischievous red-haired son. It was the creation of Michael Peraza Jr.,[1][2] and pitched to Disney management as a last-minute idea to fit the title.

Goofy, a single father, moves back to his hometown of Spoonerville[5] with his son, Max, and they end up moving in next door to his high school friend Pete, a used car salesman and owner of Honest Pete's Used Cars; Pete's wife Peg,[6] a real estate agent; and their two children; their son P.J. (Pete Jr.) and daughter Pistol.[7] Max and P.J. quickly become best friends and do practically everything together. Much of the show's humor comes from Max's normal personality, which contrasts with his father's.

Broadcast history and feature films[edit]

Goof Troop was originally previewed on The Disney Channel from April 20 to July 12 of 1992.[8][9] Like its predecessors DuckTales, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin, and Darkwing Duck and its successor Bonkers, Goof Troop was previewed in syndication on September 5, 1992 with a pilot television film, which later aired as a multi-part serial during its regular run. The series aired on The Disney Afternoon block of syndicated animated series during the 1992/1993 broadcast season; concurrent with the Disney Afternoon shows, another 13 episodes aired on Saturday mornings on ABC in 1992. Reruns of the series later aired on The Disney Channel starting on September 3, 1996,[10] and later on sister cable channel Toon Disney, with reruns airing on it until January 2005. The program returned from September 2006 until August 2008, with the Christmas special airing on Christmas in the United States.

Goof Troop was adapted into the feature film A Goofy Movie (1995), which received mixed reviews but was a box office success. The film was followed by a direct-to-video sequel, An Extremely Goofy Movie (2000) and served as the finale to Goof Troop. The two films featured Bill Farmer, Rob Paulsen and Jim Cummings reprising their character roles from Goof Troop in these two films, with Jason Marsden providing the voice of an older Max. Dana Hill, who voiced Max in the series, commercials, promos, miscellaneous and other Disney projects, died on July 15, 1996, at the age of 32, after suffering a massive stroke related to her diabetes.

The series' premise was also incorporated into 1999's Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas and its 2004 sequel, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, the former depicting Max at a much younger age preceding Goof Troop, while the latter continues Max's age progression to a young adult age.



Goof Family[edit]

  • G.G. “Goofy" Goof[11][12] (voiced by Bill Farmer) is Max Goof's single father. In the pilot episode, he and Max move back to his hometown of Spoonerville from another city, where they lived in a motorhome, and end up living next door to the Petes. Goofy's biggest flaws are his short attention span and scatter-brained nature, as well as his clumsiness, which often annoys Pete. However, Goofy is very calm and kind, and usually turns the other cheek when Pete insults him. Despite this, he can get angry and defensive toward Pete, but is forgiving and still considers Pete to be his best friend.
  • Maximilian "Max" Goof (voiced by Dana Hill), is Goofy's son and an only child. He is 11½ years old,[13][14] and is in the same grade as his best friend P.J. at their junior high school.[15][16] He likes skateboarding, video games, rock music, girls, and outwitting bullies. While he is generally friendly, he, like Pete, can be cunning and/or coercive when pushed or tricked. He loves his father and is close to him, but wishes he were more normal, as he is often embarrassed by his clumsy and doting behavior. According to an interview with Disney Adventures, voice actress Dana Hill used her normal speaking voice when portraying Max.
  • Waffles (vocal effects by Frank Welker) is the Goofs' pet cat, who is often a victim of the hijinks that occur between them and the Petes. At times, Waffles is sneaky, mischievous, and selfish, often trying to get more food or pick fights with the Petes' dog, Chainsaw, whom he is antagonistic towards. However, he also displays a more laid-back attitude, wanting peace and quiet from the craziness of the Goofs' and Petes' lives.

Pete Family[edit]

  • Peter P. Pete, Sr. (voiced by Jim Cummings) is a used-car salesman who lives with his wife, Peg, and their children, his son P.J. and daughter Pistol. He and his family live next door to Goofy, whom he has known since childhood. He is dishonest, mean, and cunning, often exploiting Goofy in his schemes to get rich quick or improve his own image. However, his schemes often backfire on him and he sometimes feels guilty about his behavior and works to make things right. He is both a protagonist and an anti-hero, as he hates Goofy but also tolerates and helps him.
  • Peg Pete (voiced by April Winchell) is Pete's wife and P.J. and Pistol's mother, who works as a real estate agent in Spoonerville and has been married to him for at least twenty years. She is headstrong, quick-witted, and short-tempered when angry, and although she and Pete often clash over his schemes, she loves him dearly and their arguments serve to keep him in check.
  • Peter Pete, Jr. (voiced by Rob Paulsen) is Pete and Peg's eldest child, Pistol's older brother, and Max's best friend, who, in contrast to his father, is shy, but kind. He is in the same grade as Max and, like him, enjoys skateboarding, bike-riding, video games, and rock music, but also has a personal interest in poetry. Max often encourages him to take risks and follow along with his ideas to achieve their goals, and he is usually on the receiving end of his father's schemes. He often plays the role of accomplice to those plotting to thwart his father, usually Peg or Max, but is capable of seeing through his father's plans on his own.
  • Pistol Pete (voiced by Nancy Cartwright) is Pete and Peg's youngest child and P.J.'s younger sister, who is 4½–6 years old,[17][18][19] and in kindergarten.[20][21] She is girly in her love of tea parties, animals, and dolls, but also has a tomboy streak in her fascination with speed, sports, professional wrestling, and bugs; she is also talkative and often asks questions. She often gets into mischief, leading others to get in trouble trying to bail her out.
  • Chainsaw (vocal effects by Frank Welker) is the Petes' pet dog, who hates Waffles and often chases and barks at him, but is also on the receiving end of his antics. On rare occasions, she and Waffles tolerate each other and get along.

Many fans did not buy Goof Troop Volume 1 because it has only three episodes and additional episodes were only available on VHS. At the time, many fans were still waiting for Disney to put out Goof Troop Volume 1 again with more episodes.[33] The DVD release of A Goofy Movie features one episode titled "Calling All Goofs", but the intro is removed. A Disney Movie Club exclusive DVD titled "Have Yourself A Goofy Little Christmas" contains the holiday special of the same name.

  • Goof Troop: Great Egg-Spectations
  • Goof Troop: Goin' Gold-Fishing
  • Goof Troop: The Junior Graphic Novel


Goof Troop has had a lasting impact on Goofy and Pete’s careers, as their later appearances throughout the 90s to the mid-2000s were built on the show's status quo. These include A Goofy Movie, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, An Extremely Goofy Movie, House of Mouse and Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, all of which feature Goofy and Pete's respective families as major characters. Goofy and Pete also appeared on Bonkers and Raw Toonage in their Goof Troop designs.

In the DuckTales reboot series' premiere episode, Spoonerville is mentioned amongst a number of locations that Scrooge McDuck's company, McDuck Enterprises, conducts business in. In the season three episode "Quack Pack!", Goofy in his Goof Troop design appears as a guest character as part of a 1990s sitcom the Duck Family had become trapped in. Max and P.J. also make non-physical appearances via Goofy's family pictures.[44]

In 2023, new photos were added to the inside of Goofy's house in the refurbished Mickey's Toontown area of Disneyland. The photos now include pictures of Goofy and Max, a picture of Pete with his family, and a picture of Max with P.J. and Pistol. There is also now a height chart for Goofy and Max on a doorway frame in the house.[45]


A video game very loosely based on the series was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System on July 11, 1993.

Two films loosely based on Goof Troop were made years after the show's end. The first film, A Goofy Movie, was released on April 7, 1995, which heavily exploits adolescent angst and crude humor that are not present in the show. The second film, An Extremely Goofy Movie, was released on video on February 29, 2000, which serves as the series finale.
