How to Be A Spy

How to Be a Spy is a Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mouse short that first aired on May 29, 1999.


When paranoid Goofy thinks the neighbors are up to something suspicious, he orders himself a mail-order Ajax spy kit and learns how to be a spy, only to eventually find out that a love-struck Clarabelle Cow has been spying on him the whole time with the mail-order Ajax catch-a-man kit in the end.


  • In a rare occasion which Goofy is seen naked, at the start of this cartoon Goofy wears nothing but only an apron until he orders the Ajax Spy Kit.
  • Among the camouflage modes Goofy activates on his secret spy wristband include a chicken suit, a newspaper vending machine, a traffic light and a flower pot.
