Goofy is one of the original characters from Disney's Mickey Mouse animated cartoons and remains popular today. During his first appearance in the 1932 cartoon Mickey's Revue, he was known as Dippy Dawg. While Goofy is often characterized as being clumsy, silly, and unintelligent, he is also considered to be big-hearted.
Goofy has several ties to pirates, the first being a 1980 book called Goofy and the Pirate Treasure, where Goofy and Mickey Mouse set out to find the pirate treasure hidden by Goofy's great grandfather, Goofy the Great. In addition to his great grandfather, Goofy’s grandfather is also a pirate – Captain Goof-Beard. The character appeared on the show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and was voiced by actor Dick Van Dyke.
