Goofy made his debut for Disney in the 1932 film, Mickey's Revue. His voice was created by Disney writer (and ex-circus clown) Pinto Colvig. Art Babbitt, a senior animator at the Walt Disney studio, drew Goofy (also called "the Goof" by the studio crew). Art summarized Goofy's character as such:

"Goofy was the kind of character that thought very hard and very long about everything he did. And then he did it wrong!"
