Who is Max’s mom? Someone once told me that Goofy was crushing on clarabelle, but I think her boyfriend in horace. So random, lol but I’m just curious
Alright, where to begin.
In the 50s Walt wanted to give Goofy a whole new revamp. His name was George Geef and he was married and had a son named junior.
The wife was mostly a VO off-screen or a pair of legs. This is their son, Junior.
In the 90s there was merchandise released for young girls, Minnie N Me, featuring Minnie, Daisy, Penny, and some others. Penny could only be explained as a counterpart for Goofy. Note how she clearly makes sense as a genes source for Junior.
Also released in the 90s, A Goofy Troop premiered.
Here’s where things get the most messy.
In the 30s Goofy worked closely with Mickey and Donald as a trio of bachelors. Then in the 50s Goofy has a wife and kid and a job. According to the Goof Troop canon, Goofy went to high school in Spoonerville. He was a cheerleader with Peg (Pete’s future wife). Then “SOMETHING” happened and he disappeared from town. Then he came back to Spoonerville with an 11 year old son (NOT a redhead named Junior), and moved in next to Pete and Peg with their son Pete jr and their daughter Pistol. Hmmm.
In A Goofy Movie Max and PJ are in middle school which is post Goof Troop. Now they live in the not so fictional American town of Columbus, Ohio. They’re still neighbors but it’s just Pete and PJ, no Peg or Pistol in sight.
In 2000 Goofy gains a love interest in the college librarian Mrs Marpole. In A Goof Troop he had a fling with a teacher, Mrs Pennypacker. She’s not a redhead but the use of Penny in her name was a pretty odd decision.
In The Three Musketeers is when Goofy and Clarabelle get their crackship. It works because Mickey and Donald get their women but there really wasn’t anyone to pair Goofy up with. Which is probably why Clarabelle got a part and Horace doesn’t have a role.
So there’s so many plot holes in the Goofy-verse, it’s absolutely ridiculous. And rather frustrating. What happened to his redheaded son? What happened to Penny? What happened when he graduated high school? Does it have anything to do with going to college for three years and then dropping out? Was it because of Max? Then when did they and Pete and PJ move to Ohio without Pete’s wife and daughter? When Pete and Goofy because friends is that when Goofy snubbed Mickey and Donald? Max calls Donald Goofy’s best friend but he sure didn’t seem interested in picking them up on the side of the road when they needed a ride… (I’m reading too much into that one, I’m just making a joke, it’s a little cameo, it’s just meant to be cute).
Clearly the Goofy universe starting from the 90s is suppose to be a whole other thing. But the fact that Donald and Mickey exist at all is a bit of a deal breaker for that excuse. It’s a big complicated mess. I love it, but it makes no sense. It’s definitely the most frustrating of the Disney canons. But it sure produced some good movies and characters…
