Mickey's Revue is a 1932 Walt Disney cartoon, directed by Wilfred Jackson, which features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow performing a song and dance show.[1]

A yokel in the audience laughs uproariously at every act; the character would soon be known as Dippy Dawg, and would eventually become a major supporting character, Goofy. Pinto Colvig's memorable "witless laugh" could be heard in the previous Mickey Mouse cartoon, The Barnyard Olympics, but this is the first time the character can be seen on screen.[2]

Goofy (center; with glasses and a bag of peanuts), made his anonymous debut in Mickey's Revue.

Synopsis[edit]

The short begins as a typical Mickey cartoon of the time, but is set apart from all that had come before by the inclusion of a new character, whose behavior served as a running gag. This cartoon introduced Dippy Dawg Goofy anonymously as a member of the audience. He constantly irritated his fellow spectators by noisily crunching peanuts and laughing loudly, until two spectators knocked him out with their mallets.
