While her face is hidden from the viewers, her red hair is shown and her voice is heard. She appears to be slender and rather tall, with light fair skin similar to Goofy's muzzle where his whiskers extend outward. Not much is known about her, except for the fact that she is nearly as goofy as her husband and known for her undesirable driving skills.
She later appeared in the 1977 picture book "Goofy Minds the House", in which both she and Junior were redesigned to more closely resemble Goofy's design. More recently, however, she has since faded into obscurity and never appeared again in any modern Disney media (see "Trivia" below for information pertaining to Goofy's wife in Goof Troop).
Mrs. Goofy appeared in the following cartoons:
- Cold War
- Get Rich Quick
- Fathers Are People
- Two Gun Goofy
- Father's Day Off
- Father's Weekend
- How to Dance
- How to Sleep (cameo)
- When the television series Goof Troop came about in 1992, the concept of Goofy's son was reworked from Goofy Junior into Max Goof, while Goofy's wife was curiously absent, with Goofy himself depicted as a single father with no mention of his wife/Max's mother ever given by the show or its related media.
- There is a widespread misconception that it was once declared in Goof Troop that Max's mother had passed away through unknown circumstances prior to the series' beginning, with Goofy supposedly telling Max "She's up there with the stars." or "She's up there amongst the stars." However, this statement was never actually given in any episode of Goof Troop, being the product of longtime speculation and hearsay.
- Officially, when inquired about Max's mother, Disney's Guest Services once declared there to be "no definitive answer" as to "who Max's mother is and where "Mrs. Goofy" went", ultimately making the fate of Max's mother a complete enigma that remains unexplored and unanswered to this day.
