Disney's Goofy

Goofy is one of those good-natured and funny Disney characters that is also not too bright, hence the name. Goofy's voice was supplied by Disney story man, musician and clown Pinto Colvig, and Goofy and Pinto soon got featured in other cartoons.

Before long Goofy was a member of Mickey's gang, which included Minnie, Pluto, Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar. Goofy's original name was Dippy Dawg. Goofy is also famous for his series of how to cartoons, where he bumbles through with lots of mishaps.

In the 1990's 'The Goof Troop' reintroduced Goofy and son. Goofy's favorite sayings are 'Gawsh!', A-hyuck!', 'Huh,' and 'Well, whaddya know...'

Art Babbitt is considered the creator of Goofy's character, while the drawings were done by Frank Webb.

Sail Away on a Disney Cruise Line
Disney Cruise Line came into being in 1999 and for 10 years has been the cruise line leader in "family" cruises. The designers of Disney Cruise Line ships definitely had children in mind when they designed the different areas specifically for children. For kids 3 to 7, the Oceaneer Club is a pirate ship from Neverland.

There are numerous computer terminals so they can play computer games, a lab for on-hands experiments and Quackamation where they can learn how to draw Donald Duck. There are activities such as the Welcome Party, the Teen Aloha Pool Party, special teens-only shore excursions and Teen Karaoke at Studio Sea.

The childrens' pools on a Disney cruise ship are pure whimsy and fun. Goofy's Pool is a 4-foot-deep pool that features a portrait of Goofy on the bottom of the pool. Disney Cruise Line has set the bar so high for a family cruise line that other cruise lines are playing catch up.
