Roxanne Making a Date with Max

Roxanne makes a date with Max.

Roxanne first appears in Max's cream dream at the beginning of the film. She calls to Max, and he finds her sitting atop a column. The two spend time together, but as she leans in to kiss him, Roxanne is frightened off when Max unexpectedly transforms into Goofy, in a manner similar to werewolf movies, before Max wakes up in a cold sweat from the nightmare.

Later on, she walks to the school and doesn't notice max in After Today but this was because she didn't see him. At the end of the song, she helps Max up after he falls from the bleachers after the other students laugh and walked off. Max states he is alright and laughs though runs off in embarrassment at his strange laugh, to Roxanne's confusion.

She is later seen in the audience at a school assembly. Like the other students, she grows bored while listening to Principal Mazur's speech. Another boy named Chad takes the opportunity to ask her to Stacey's 'end of school' party, but she presumably refuses him. Suddenly, Mazur falls through a hole in the stage floor, and "Powerline", a famous rock star, appears on stage. However, he is soon revealed to be Max in costume to the students' shock. Unknown to Roxanne, Max had staged the concert in an attempt to impress her which worked as she smiled at him.

Roxanne is seen walking with Stacey, as they go to the principal's office to deliver something. Roxanne listens to Stacey talk about her party before her eyes wander and she sees Max sitting in the corner. She smiles at him before Stacey notices this and coyly gets her to talk to him, she is shown to like Max as well as she gets nervous in approaching him. After a talk, Max asks her out and she agrees to go to Stacey's party with him.

Unfortunately, his earlier antics were reported by Mazur in an over exaggerated detail to his father, causing Goofy to fear the worst, and he decided to take Max on an impromptu father-son trip.

Later that afternoon, Max goes to Roxanne's house, to cancel their date. When Max arrives, he meets Roxanne's father and nearly leaves out of fear before Roxanne comes and has her father step down. She talks to Max and mentions that her father will be better behaved when he takes her to the party but Max is forced to cancel their date, to her sadness. After she states she can find another date, Max impulsively lies to her. He tells Roxanne that he and Goofy are going to see Powerline in concert and that Goofy and Powerline knew each other. He also tells her that they will be on stage with Powerline during the final number. Roxanne is suitably impressed and excitedly tells Max that she will see him on TV and kisses him on the cheek after he states he wouldn't cancel their date for nothing. As he leaves, she wishes him luck at the concert, to his joy.

Near the end of the film, Roxanne is seen at Stacey's party but is unhappy as, so far, Max has not appeared. Stacey reassures her, and indeed Max and Goofy soon appear on stage, to her joy and amazement. Later, she is seen copying Max's dance, and getting sprayed with Cheddar Whiz by Bobby.

At the end, Max goes back to Roxanne's house to tell her the truth. Roxanne congratulates him on the concert but he tells her the truth, as she is somewhat confused at him making that up. When Max explains that his actions were meant to get Roxanne to like him, Roxanne is surprised but shocks him by revealing that she had already liked him, to his shock. She states it was ever since she heard his "Ah-hyuck!" laugh. She forgives Max's lie as it was in the right place, she offers to go out on a date that night. Max cannot, as he has plans with Goofy, to which she is jokingly skeptical until he confirms it. Instead, he offers to go tomorrow, and Roxanne accepts. She offers to shake hands to make it a deal, but Max instead kisses her, a callback to her kissing him. She is surprised by this but happy as it causes them both to laugh. They then notice Goofy, who is working on his car. The car explodes due to the damage sustained from the waterfall, causing Goofy to fall right through Roxanne's roof. Max then takes the opportunity to introduce Roxanne to Goofy.

Roxanne does not appear in the sequel An Extremely Goofy Movie. It is not known what happened to her between films, but it is assumed that she and Max may have dated and broken up since, in the sequel film, Max is seen giving a flirtatious look to a girl at a clothes shop, and both later attempts to give yet another girl the seat next to him in class (but which Goofy ends up taking, leaving the girl to instead sit next to Bradley Uppercrust III when he offers her the seat next to him) and accepts an offer to dance with this other at a night club. Both of these girls reappear throughout the film in the background as fans of Max at the College X-Games, cheering him on along with several other girls.

Eventually, Roxanne would evidently return to Max's love life as she appears in the Disney's House of Mouse episode "Max's Embarrassing Date", wherein she goes on a date with Max at the titular House of Mouse (see below).

Disney Adventures comics

After the release of A Goofy Movie, Roxanne appeared in two Goof Troop comic stories published in Disney Adventures. In the first story, "My Hero" (printed in the October 1995 issue), Max wants to be Roxanne's hero and, assisted by P.J. and Bobby, tries to set up perilous situations to save her from, but Max instead ends up saving Stacey and Bobby in his attempts to do so. Then, when Max tries to save Roxanne from a fake python, he gets frightened by a real python, but Roxanne saves him from it.

Roxanne's other appearance in the Disney Adventures comics was in what was notably the magazine's final Goof Troop comic, "Gorilla in Our Midst" (in the April 1997 issue). In the story, a gorilla named Mr. Kong moves next door to Goofy and Max. Max and P.J. think that Mr. Kong is a monster, and his constant snoring prevents Max from getting any rest. When Max shows up late for his movie date with Roxanne and explains his problem to her, Roxanne goes over to Mr. Kong's house and tells him that he needs to stop making the loud snoring noises. Upon hearing Roxanne telling him this, Mr. Kong politely apologizes for the inconvenience, thus revealing to Max that he's actually a nice guy.

House of Mouse

Max's date

Roxanne on her date with Max at House of Mouse

Roxanne appears in the episode "Max's Embarrassing Date", taking place at some point after at least A Goofy Movie, possibly even shortly after "An Extremely Goofy Movie". On Max's night off from work, he takes Roxanne on a date to the House of Mouse.

The actions of Mickey and his friends serve to embarrass them both until Goofy intervenes to let the couple have some privacy. At the end of their date, Roxanne says that despite all of the commotion and embarrassments, she had the time of her life, and could not wait to come back again.

Trivia

  • According to character designer Carole Holliday in The Making of A Goofy Movie, when developing the character of Roxanne, director Kevin Lima wanted "a character who was 13 years old, and spunky, and the most popular girl in the school." While the latter two aspects are apparent in the final version of the film, it is unlikely for Roxanne to be 13 at the time the movie takes place since said time is at the end of a high school year, by which point the youngest age a high schooler (specifically, a ninth grader) in the U.S. can be is 14 (unless she was gifted enough to have skipped a grade, which the movie gives no evidence to support or deny).
  • In A Goofy Movie, Roxanne has four fingers like normal, but in House of Mouse, she has five.
  • When Roxanne gets excited or nervous, she plays with her hair.
  • Although Roxanne's father looks like a bulldog, she does not resemble him in any way, therefore she might resemble her mother.
  • Both of Roxanne's voice actresses (Kellie Martin and Grey DeLisle) share another role together: Daphne Blake in the Scooby-Doo franchise. Martin (Roxanne's debut voice) voiced Daphne (as a pre-teen) in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, while DeLisle (who voiced Roxanne in House of Mouse) has served as the primary voice for the character since 2001. Coincidentally, both Daphne and Roxanne have red hair.
  • Although Roxanne does not appear or get referenced in the "Christmas Maximus" segment of Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, the new character Mona almost physically resembles her (except for short brunette hair instead of long red hair), and both characters share the same voice actress: Kellie Martin. The reason why Roxanne was replaced by Mona in that film remains unknown, though it might be because in these early days of CGI, animating a character with long hair (such as Roxanne) was more difficult than animating one with short hair (such as Mona).
  • A background character resembling Roxanne appears as a recurring extra in DuckTales (2017).
    • In "Woo-oo!", she appears in Flintheart Glomgold's waiting room and later as a reporter.
    • In "Daytrip of Doom!", she is seen on a bus reading a book called The Joy of Personal Space and is annoyed when Webby attempts to help her by turning the page for her.
