“Gawrsh!” A Goofy Movie celebrates its 27th anniversary this week! The animated movie was released theatrically on April 7th, 1995. 

From Goof Troop to the big screen

A Goofy Movie served as a follow up to the Goof Troop cartoon series. Goof Troop was a popular Disney Afternoon cartoon series that ran for 78 episodes in the early 90’s. It told the adventures of Goofy and his son Max moving to Spoonerville. They became next-door neighbors with Pete and his family. Max and PJ were best friends who shared daily adventures with their fathers. Goofy’s silly and clumsy nature often clashed with Pete, but that didn’t stop the two families from forming a special bond as friends and neighbors. The events of A Goofy Movie take place a few years after the end of Goof Troop. Even though Max loved his dad, he did find himself sometimes embarrassed by Goofy’s naive nature.

“Eye to Eye”

For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

A Goofy Movie showed audiences a teenage Max pursuing his high school crush, Roxanne. Goofy loves his son and wants to bond with him more, so he plans a road trip vacation. Max resents the planned fishing trip since it means he won’t be able to see Roxanne for a few weeks. He wants to impress her by showing up at a Powerline concert. In the movie, Powerline is a pop music sensation that Max and his teenage friends all adore. Goofy and Max share a lot of fun adventures while driving to California. Goofy wants to teach his son “The Perfect Cast” and go fishing together.

Certain events take them on a detour though. Their road trip is full of adventure and wild thrills. From seeing an opossum-based theme park to being chased by Bigfoot, the duo finds excitement throughout each step of their journey. While we don’t see them fish, Goofy and Max do strengthen their bond as father and son. Goofy and Max wind up crashing a Powerline concert in the end and enjoy a memorable dance on stage with Max’s favorite singer!
