Louie is buffoonish and sometimes grumpy. His cartoons often see him chasing after either Donald Duck or Goofy.
He later appears in Goofy's Radio, where he tries to eat Goofy but uncontrollably dances to the music of Goofy's radio.
Louie makes a small appearance in "Goofy's Valentine Date". He also appears in "Pluto Saves the Day" just before "Goofy's Big Kitty" is shown, where Goofy tells him that this cartoon stars Goofy and him, then roars at him making Goofy say him and Goofy.
- His appearance was modeled after the tiger in the Goofy short Tiger Trouble. The drawings of Louie in the model sheet seen below are animation drawings of the tiger from Tiger Trouble but without the stripes. Co-incidentally, Raja the Tiger, the secondary antagonist of the animated short Goliath II, bears a close physical resemblance to both Louie and the tiger from Tiger Trouble.
- His son appears in Hook, Lion and Sinker. Louie attempted catch Donald Duck's fishing trip prizes with help of a young lion cub who had to pick bullets out of his backside.
