Waffles is Goofy and Max's cat on Goof Troop. A running gag involves Waffles tormenting Chainsaw, Pete's dog, and she usually ends up chasing him. As neighbors, the two pets hardly get along, though each has discovered they have much in common. However, he can be seen on friendlier terms with Chainsaw at times as shown in "Three Ring Bind" when both he and Chainsaw agreed in disgust about the Ringmaster's plan to turn his own circus animals into puppy chow (dog food). As the story from the November 1995 issue of "Disney Adventures Magazine" shows that, in "Goof Troop: The Adventures of Waffles and Chainsaw", they both are terrorized by their living conditions. Frank Welker did his vocal effects.
- Though Waffles is officially a boy, the Goof Troop episodes "Meanwhile, Back at the Ramp" and "Cabana Fever" instead refer to him as a female. Meanwhile, Waffles is correctly identified as male in "Where There's Smoke, There's Goof", "Goofin' Hood and his Melancholy Men",, "Great Egg-Spectations", "Cat's Entertainment",, "Where There's a Will, There's a Goof", "From Air to Eternity", and "A Pizza the Action".
- Waffles is absent in both A Goofy Movie and An Extremely Goofy Movie. Though it is possible that he passed away due to the movies taking place three and six years, respectively, after the events of the series, the most likely reason for his absence is that he (as well as Chainsaw) simply didn't factor into the father-son story that each movie wanted to focus on between Goofy and Max, at least not in any meaningful enough way to warrant an appearance in the movies for Waffles.
- One possible explanation for his and Chainsaw's absence could, in theory, be found in the Goof Troop comic strip "The Adventures of Waffles and Chainsaw" published in the November 1995 issue of Disney Adventures magazine, as said comic seemingly ends with both Chainsaw and Waffles running away from home together. Though there would be one more comic strip, "Good Dog Card", featuring the two at home published later in July of 1996, the ending of this one has a sense of closure and finality to it for Waffles and Chainsaw that feels like it could serve as the pets' final and latest chronological appearance in Goof Troop continuity, providing them an exit from the series before the events of A Goofy Movie.
- Waffles’ original design was an elderly cat (possibly Siamese-breed) and was originally called Velcrow.

- ↑ Goofy says to Pete, "Well, I was teachin' Waffles to catch a Frisbee in his mouth. He wasn't too handy with a shot put, so I figured, uh..."
- ↑ Of Waffles, Pistol melodramatically yells, "Save that poor kitty, P.J.! Don't let him die all alone in that tree!"
- ↑ Pistol alludes to Waffles being male when she says to Chainsaw, "Have you ever noticed how easy it is to lure boys into a trap?" as she prepares a bucket of ice water to trip up P.J., Max, and Waffles, the aforementioned "boys".
