what is goofy?


Recommended Posts

Goofy is a fictional character from the Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse universe. He is an anthropomorphic dog and is one of Mickey Mouse's best friends. Sources including the Goof Troop television show and A Goofy Movie reveal the character's full name to be Goofy Goof.


Anthropomorphism, a form of personification (applying human or animal qualities to inanimate objects) and similar to prosopopoeia (adopting the persona of another person), is the attribution of human characteristics and qualities to non-human beings, objects, or natural phenomena. Animals, forces of nature, and unseen or unknown authors of chance are frequent subjects of anthropomorphosis.


The term comes from two Greek words, άνθÏωπος (anthrÅpos), meaning "human", and μοÏφή (morphÄ“), meaning "shape" or "form". The suffix '-ism' originates from the morpheme '-isma' in the Greek language
