• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.



  • Goofy is the only original Disney character who does not have a girl like Mickey or Donald, but he's the only one who has a son, Max. It's not the fact that he had a son (possibly out of wedlock), it's the idea that Goofy actually had sex with a woman that keeps me up at night.
    • Actually, Goofy was paired with Clarabell at one point.
    • In the '50s era "Goofy the everyman" shorts where Max originated, Goofy actually did have a wife, but she (and all other female characters) was The Faceless.
    • Keeps you up at night? It's one of Disney's best Parental Bonus!
    • It's alluded to in A Goofy Movie that he is a widower, if that helps.
    • To answer all of the above, Maximum "Max" George Junior Goofy's (yes, that's his full official name) mother is most likely Penny Libertybee, from the Minnie 'N' Me franchise. She looks just like the faceless Mrs. Goofy would have looked: same red hair, same nose, etc. However, there was also another character from the comics called "Glory-Bee", who some say is the same character as Penny, and she did have red hair in at least one comic, but in most of them she was a blonde. Anyway, the major Goofy fans who keep track of the family trees have said that Max's mom was most likely Penny, but could have been Glory-Bee, or both if they were the same character.
  • In the Christmas movie Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas Max is a little kid (younger than on Goof Troop), but in Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas he is a teenager. Yet Huey, Dewey, and Louie remain the same. I am at a loss to explain this one logically.
    • Huey, Dewey and Louie have a Gary Coleman-esque kidney problem. They are really in their 40's.
    • Huey, Dewey, and Louie have been stuck inside of a timewarp for the past 12 years
    • Did the second movie ever actually say that the stories all happened on the same Christmas?
      • Well at the end of the movie teenaged Max and 10-year old Huey, Dewey, and Louie are shown singing Christmas carols along with the rest of the gang.
    • To add to the mystery, Huey, Dewey, and Louie appear to be the same age in the Kingdom Hearts prequel, Birth By Sleep, as they appear ten years later in Kingdom Hearts 2. Maybe they just don't age?
    • This can be explained by a little judiciously-appled Tiny Toons physiology -- i.e. laughter (or rather, mindshare) keeps a toon young (or rather, at their "iconic" age). People know Huey, Dewey, and Louie as 10 year olds, so they stay 10 year olds; people don't really know Max, so he ages normally.
  • Disney went out of the way to make Mickey Mouse and friends, plus Oswald, popular again and succeeded . But why haven't they done anything else with them? The only thing they confirmed was Epic Mickey 2, Seriously the only thing I want is announcement for a new Mickey Cartoon.
    • They may still be thinking. Of stuff to do with him? Or they want it to be a surprise?
