Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in 'The Turkey Catchers'

A look through our archives brought me to this Thanksgiving favorite!

It's another holiday, and another Disney animated short film.

With Love to Disney’s Fab Five Father – Goofy

While we all know that Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck are well known to be Uncles, Goofy is the only one that can claim the title of Father. He's used a wide range of names since his creation for "Mickey's Review" in 1932. He's been called Dippy Dawg, George Geef, or G. G. Geef, John, James Boyd, Goofy Goof, or G. G. Goof and even occasionally been given as Goofus D. Dawg. No matter what the origins may reveal, we all know him and love him by his nickname "Goofy."
