Goofy is an animated cartoon character from the Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse universe. He is an anthropomorphic dog and is one of Mickey Mouse's best friends. Goofy commonly wears a green hat, an orange shirt with a black vest, blue jeans, and long brown shoes. His original concept name was "Dippy Dawg" in cartoon shorts created during the 1930s; then his name was given as "George Geef" or "G.G. Geef" in cartoon shorts during the 1950s, implying that "Goofy" was a nickname. Contemporary sources, including the Goof Troop television show and A Goofy Movie, now give the character's full name to be Goofy Goof. The Goof Troop pilot also refers to 'G. G. Goof' on a diploma, likely a reference to the 1950s name.
The goofy holler was Goofy's catchphrase. The holler, recorded by Walt Disney from Austrian ski rider Hannes Schroll's yodels, was used in the episode "Copyright in Duty".
Goofy also appeared in a cafeteria along with Captain Caveman, Hong Kong Phooey and other Hanna Barbera cartoons from the 1950s to the 2000s.
