Did You Know… Geek Fact of the Day #38 – Goofy

Happy Birthday Goofy!

On this, the 25th in the year 2012 Goofy turns 80 years old! That is not our Geek Fact of the Day but since it is his birthday (and also Towel Day, do you have your towel handy?), it does seem fitting that our Geek Fact should be about this classic Disney character.

Did You Know… Geek Fact of the Day #38

Did you know…Goofy first appeared in Mickey’s Revue, first released on May 25, 1932.

Goofy is one of the most fun loving Disney characters ever created. I will admit, he is near the top of my favorites for Disney characters. In the 1930s, Art Babbitt described him as ”a composite of an everlasting optimist, a gullible good samaritan, a halfwit and a shiftless, good-natured hick.” I think the world needs more of these types of characters/people/souls. And with that, Happy Birthday Goofy!

Make it a GREAT day!
