Goofy and Wilbur

Ignoring a nearby No-Fishing sign, Goofy is in a rowing boat utilizing the services of his friendly pal, a grasshopper named Wilbur to catch some fish. Wilbur proceeds to play a game of cat and mouse with the local fishes, leading them into Goofy’s awaiting net; but some fish are more wiley than others.

Goofy’s first title short and the first short where he is officially referred to as Goofy…

Goofy had been a long running side character in many of Mickey’s shorts, appearing under the name of Dippy Dawg in the early Thirties (although he was commonly referred to as The Goof by the animators). Although he had been around since the Thirties, the character had to wait many years to get his face on the opening titles; in fact, relative newcomer Donald Duck had gotten his name and face on the titles two years prior to the Goof. Reasons for this may by due to a lack of personality that Goofy had had up to this point; this changed when the character came under the direction of animator Art Babbitt, who took the goof as he had been and helped to define and develop the character’s personality and attitude to the optimistic bungler that would star in forty-five further theatrical shorts bearing his name.
