Disney Fact #71

Our fun-loving pal Goofy has certainly come a long way – with his name, that is! When Goofy made his debut, it was in a newspaper comic strip in the 1930’s and his name was Dippy Dawg.

By 1938, his name was changed with the release of the book ‘The Story of Dippy the Goof‘. By 1939, the cartoon ‘Goofy and Wilbur’ was released, and Goofy finally received his final name change.
