Goofy started as a older character Dippy Dawg in 1932.
Dippy Dawg was how Goofy made his debut! Not many characters have gone through such a large transformation than the character Goofy. Started as Dippy Dawg, an old backwoods stereotype, the only thing which remains the same from that Goofy to the current avatar is his memorable “hyuck”.
Goofy is also a superhero! Goofy transforms himself and becomes Super Goof whenever he has some super goobers. His superhero avatar can fly and has super strength.
Goofy is a widower! While Mrs. Goofy was never shown on screen, In his “Everyman Series“, her shadow, feet or hair did made an appearance. It later becomes quite clear in “A Goofy Movie” that Goofy has become a single parent caring for Max all by himself.
Goofy is a smoker! Here’s the kicker, Disney has produced an entire movie about it way back in 1951 called No Smoking. It focuses on a Goofy-ish type character of Christopher Columbus who is given a cigar which he brings home and gets everyone addicted to.
We then pan out to find Goofy addicted and coping up with his addition to nicotine. Perhaps put there by Disney for those who were still non-believers in the smoking addiction of Goofy as an actual character.
Mickey Mouse first appeared in Steamboat Willie November 18, 1928 and started it All!
Mickey and Mini are married albeit offscreen. The marriage was never shown on screen but Walt Disney confirmed that the couple indeed are settled down for good. Walt Disney was the one to initially voice them both.
Hidden Mickey Everywhere! Our favorite mouse is hidden all over Disney World. A part of fun in visiting Disney Land is spotting them hiding under rocks, the bush or even in the shadows. Count how many you can spot the next time you visit the fantasy land!
The reason for Mickey having four fingers is Walt Disney’s reluctance to draw one more finger. He thought artistically five fingers for a mouse is too many but the biggest benefit of it was saving millions by not drawing one finger on each of the 45,000 drawing that made a six and a half minute short film back them.
Our little friend is also the first animated character to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of the Fame, that too on his birthday (November 18) in 1978.
The ageless duo have been entertaining us since Feb 10, 1940
Also known as Jasper and Jinx in the early days till a studio wide competition made them adopt the persona known as T&J. The animator John Carr who came us with the name got $50 as reward and thanks from millions of fans across the world.
The House owner’s face is shown just once during the entire airing of the series and too for a blink and miss out scene. The historical episode “Saturday Evening Puss” is where you can catch her face. Scrub to 5:33 and pause, move frame by frame using < and > keys of your keyboard, thanks us later!
Tom and Jerry – Saturday Evening Puss
The duo commits suicide in the end. This is kind of a downer but the duo but the last episode of the series shows them sitting on the train waiting for the train to come after both of them have their heart broken. We don’t have the heart to embed this here but for the brave hearts, follow this link to see how it ends.
The ones who have a cocktail named after them! Yeah, You read it right, Tom and Jerry is a traditional cocktail during Christmas time and contains eggnok, brandy and rum. It’s served hot, usually in a mug or bowl. Even the adult us needs an excuse to return to them if only for a day in a year!
