After discovering their existence on Inducks.org, I tracked down physical copies of the specific issues they were printed in and imported them from France off of eBay, Amazon, AbeBooks, and from an acquaintance living in France who helped me to get the last few that weren't available on eBay, Amazon, or AbeBooks.
In total, I have acquired the following French works:
12 issues of Le Journal de Mickey (9 of which contain French Goof Troop comics, 1 that contains a Goof Troop gag comic, 1 that contains a Mickey Mouse comic featuring the Goof Troop versions of Pete, Peg, and P.J., and 1 that contains a special comic for A Goofy Movie)
The Goof Troop graphic novel "The Visitor From Another Time
The graphic novel adaptation of A Goofy Movie
Three different storybook adaptations of A Goofy Movie
And the French novelization of A Goofy Movie
I've also acquired:
Scans of the Danish-translated version of the French graphic novel of A Goofy Movie,
Scans of a Danish storybook adaptation of A Goofy Movie,
A physical copy of a German storybook adaptation of A Goofy Movie,
A physical copy of the German-translated version of the above-mentioned graphic novel "The Visitor From Another Time" (retitled in German as "The Return of the Dinos"),
And a physical copy of the UK English-translated version of the French graphic novel adaptation of A Goofy Movie, titled A Goofy Movie Mini-Comic
And that's just the stuff I imported from Europe. I haven't even gotten into any of the American stuff I've acquired (namely, either physical copies or scans of every Goof Troop comic published in Disney Adventures and The Disney Afternoon, or the various storybooks based on Goof Troop or A Goofy Movie).
If only Disney would make them available to the Western World. Alas.
As for me, since I had to import them physically, I have not scanned any of them and worry that some of them might become damaged if I were to scan them since some of them are in pretty worn shape. After all, these are over twenty years old and were all used copies.
Though, since I don't speak a lick of French, German, or Danish, I had to personally translate them all into English by first transcribing each and every one of them and then use a combination of Google Translate, Wiktionary, Collins Dictionary, and more (as well as my own common sense of both the English language and of how these characters speak) to find out what the text translates into for each comic and each book. I've got everything put into several Microsoft Word documents that I refer back to whenever I need to check something that was said in any of them.
In the Goof Troop episode "You Camp Take It With You", Max playfully said "Wakey, wakey, Peejey-Weejey!" in his attempt to wake up the stubbornly sleeping P.J. so that the two could begin their plans for their summer vacation.
It is true, but I took it out because it was only ever spoken that one time for the specific circumstances of that one instance, in which it wasn't much of an actual nickname as it was Max just being silly and playful in that one case.
Whereas P.J.'s other nicknames like "Peej", "(the) Peejmeister", and "(the) Peejster" were each used periodically throughout the series as legitimate nicknames.
Also, while I have your attention, check this out if you haven't yet.
I don't know if there's a "legit" nickname (Peejmeister and Peejster also sound like someone being silly/playful) but I can understand prioritizing recurring ones that are used more than once over ones only used once.
In that case should we try and find at least 2 sources to qualify things for inclusion? I'd really like to retain stuff like "Mrs. Pete" even when it's only said once though...
Pretty impressive, would Kingdom Hearts be workable into that or would that raise even more problems than trying to explain Bonkers? How did you figure out Bonkers and Goof Troop had to take place simultaneously? Wondering if maybe he could've acted before or after raising Max.
Perhaps the millionaire actor in Bonkers was actually Goofy's Nobody?
Max was just being cute in that one instance. Every time "Peejmeister" and "Peejster" were used, it was by someone trying to make P.J. sound cool and to show that he's liked by the person who used them. Whereas Max was sort of "teasing" P.J. for not waking up in that other instance, pretty much just using baby-talk to provoke him into waking up.
As for Kingdom Hearts, that game series has its own completely unique lore and history all to itself that makes it impossible to reconcile with any other universe. It's gotta be its own thing.
As for Bonkers, the technology used in that show was contemporary to that of the 90s, and the show apparently took place over the course of several years given how Bonkers was supposed have been partners with Lucky for a long period of time before he switched to being partners with Miranda. And yet, Goofy doesn't appear in the show until the Miranda episodes.
Similarly, Ludwig Von Drake was featured in episodes of Bonkers too, also during some of the Miranda episodes, in which he was shown to live in Hollywood with the rest of that show's cast. Yet, both DuckTales (set in the late 80s) and Quack Pack (set in the mid-90s) instead showed him to live in Duckburg. Now, one could argue that maybe Duckburg is simply located near to Hollywood, but like Spoonerville, Duckburg's actual location in DuckTales was an inconsistent affair, as many episodes would feature it to instead be on the east coast or even in the central time zone of the U.S. Even Calisota was only ever mentioned once in DuckTales, but never stated to be where Duckburg resides.
Getting back to Bonkers, that show also treated the non-human characters as unique lifeforms called "Toons" while the humans were the normal people. Whereas Goof Troop and other series of its kind treated the anthropomorphic animals as normal ordinary people.
About the only thing from another show that could take place in the Bonkers universe is that one Darkwing Duck episode "A Star is Scorned" in which all the characters are actors who play themselves on TV, like how many of the Toons in Bonkers are actors who do the same.
JeremyCreek fixed it. I don't know why the refs broke. But just undoing it though sometimes gets rid of more info than necessary which is sometimes annoying. I think there is a problem when people try to add something to a template sometimes. It happened to me on the Vilains Wikia once, the image size section kept on moving down to the bottom all the time even though it wasn't touched. It's irritating because you just add something and the template messes everything else up. No hard feelings? DisneyFan18111928 (talk) 22:48, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
I see that you added some info to the pages for various Goofy Movie characters related to the Dingo & Max comic in Le Journal de Mickey #2330. I'm particularly interested in the non-standard color schemes described for some of these characters, do you have any images of this comic that you'd be able to post to their galleries?
I do not, no, as my copy of the 21-year-old magazine issue is a used copy in a very delicate condition (and which I had to import via a middleman who helped me in acquiring both it and some of the other French Goof Troop comics), so I'm hesitant to scan it out of risk of causing any further damage that could potentially lead to its falling apart.
That said, there is at least one small image of the first page that is visible on Inducks, which features a tiny look at both Roxanne's weird color scheme and Hubert as a recolor of Chad (but not Stacey's color scheme).
Of note, those three are the only ones whose color schemes are unique to that comic. Max, P.J., Goofy, and even the Spock-dressed nerd all keep their color schemes from the movie, though P.J.'s shirt is purple instead of the blue that it was in the movie, but so too was it purple in both of the Disney Adventures Goof Troop comics that featured Roxanne.
Your edits are rejected, and I won't have reverting. Furthermore, those sections need a clear out, as in erasing stuff not adding more. I don't care what research you have put into those edits you made, I don't approve. There is too much in the relatives section as it is, and a few things need to go.
Those are all Max's and Goofy's relatives from the Goof Troop cartoon's 'Goof History' episodes ("Goofin Hood and his Meloncholy Men", "The Ungoofables", "Sherlock Goof", "Gunfight at the Okie Doke Corral", and "Clan of the Cave Goof"), as well as the episodes "Hallow-Weenies", "Calling All Goofs", and "Frankengoof". All the information is official and accurate to how it was given in those episodes. If you need to verify the sources, just look up the episodes and see for yourself. Why leave out what is official Goof family information?
I do not believe the relatives in Goof Troop count. If they did count we would have had them up a long time ago. Because they haven't been noted then there must be a reason behind it. There are a lot of questions.
Why would they not count when a bunch of other way more obscure relatives from old comics would count? In fact, several of those more obscure relatives (like Gaffy, Geefy, Gilbert, etc.) don't even have any official familial ties to Max, only to Goofy, and not even the version of Goofy from Goof Troop. Plus, Debbie and the "Calling All Goofs" relatives get to stay and they were exclusive to Goof Troop too. Your decision to keep only some of the Goof Troop relatives and not others seems very arbitrary.
Have you even asked yourself why they weren't noted before or asked the Admins if it's okay to publish?
They were noted on the main Goof Troop article's character section, so I figured that there was no harm in their being included on the pages for the characters whose family they are a part of.
As for why they weren't noted on those pages beforehand, I figured it was because Goof Troop simply isn't popular enough for most people to have bothered putting the effort into going through the series to add in any missing information from the show to its proper online reference places. I, however, like Goof Troop enough to go through it and fill out the missing info from the show, and I plan to continue adding more missing info to fill in all the holes and provide a much more proper and presentable coverage of the show (as, let's face it, the current state of Goof Troop coverage on here is pretty bare-boned, which is to be expected from a show that doesn't have a whole lot of fans to support its coverage).
Your terms "great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather" looks ridiculous.
I can't help that that's how Goofy referred to Goofin Hood in the episode. It is what it is.
(Also, you changed a link to Bobby's page on Goofy's page from a direct link to a redirect. "Zimuruski" is the official spelling of his last name given in both the DVD subtitles and the official comic book adaptation of A Goofy Movie. The "Zimmeruski" spelling has no official source.)
Alright I'll permit, since I honestly don't know much about the Goof Troop universe. However, may I make a suggestion? Instead of writing "great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather" just write "ninth great-grandfather". It will look neater that way. It's been done on the Star vs. the Forces of Evil Wiki and I've done it on our own articles on the show.
"Ninth great-grandfather" (and "Tenth great-granddad" for Max's page) does sound more manageable. Thank you.
I'm glad we could work this out. Goof Troop, while not perfect, I find to be an underrated gem of a show that simply was the unfortunate victim of being the first sitcom introduced in The Disney Afternoon at a time when all of its contemporaries were action/adventure shows. It explored and fleshed out Goofy's extended family (and Pete's extended family, to a lesser extent) more than any other animated Disney work, and spawned a fantastic first movie (and an okay second movie), but sadly most won't give it the time of day it deserves since it wasn't as "cool" or "exciting" as the likes of DuckTales, Chip n' Dale, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, Aladdin, etc.
People will speak of A Goofy Movie with reverence (as is appropriate), but Goof Troop itself gets more scorn and ridicule than not. It's not perfect, no, but it did do a lot for Goofy, Max, and Pete as characters and left its legacy in all subsequent media that featured Max as Goofy's son. I intend to honor Goof Troop for its contribution to the Disney brand, even if its not as lovingly remembered by everyone as other Disney cartoons of its era.
Truth be told, I've recently been trying to acquire as much Goof Troop-related media that I can find, including all the old Disney Adventures magazine issues that had Goof Troop comics in them. And some of those comics may prove rather useful and informative in expanding on the Goof Troop-related info here. One of the comics even goes into what might possibly be the origin of Spoonerville (the town Goof Troop takes place in), which could be very useful in a future update to the Spoonerville article on here. ;-)
So, yeah, if you ever need any Goof Troop-related help or questions answered, feel free to ask and I can find the episode or movie or comic or whatever needed as a source of Goof Troop-related info. Cheers.
Thinking more about what you said about clearing out some names, I think something could be done about the relatives of Goofy that are listed on Max's page but which have never been officially associated with either Max or the 1950s Goofy Junior. Specifically, Gilbert Goof, Captain Goof-Beard, Grandma Goofy, and Gaffy.
While all of these people have been affiliated with Goofy himself in some way, they've only been so in media that Max/Goofy Junior doesn't seem to exist in, and in turn none of them have been confirmed to exist in either Goof Troop (or its related media) or in the 1950s George Geef shorts.
Any thoughts on taking just those four out of just Max's page?
