Goofy's wife

Hey everyone,

I've been enjoying comics for close to thirty years now 
and my love of the medium started with titles starring 
Mickey, Goofy, Donald, and Uncle Scrooge.  Now that I have 
three triplet daughters (I understand, Unca Donald!), I, 
one, watch more Disney channel and, two, look at media 
depictions of fathers a bit more closely.  We all know 
about the "Disney single parent" thing.  How most 
characters are orphaned or have at least one dead parent. 
 Some of this, it has been thought, was due to Walt and 
his brother losing their mother when the house they had 
bought for her was lost in a fire.  But anyway...the Goofy 
Movie was on a while ago featuring Goofy and his son, Max. 
 Goofy and Max often appear together at Disneyworld as 
well.  We don't know much about Mrs. Goofy or what 
happened to her (we are led to believe that she has passed 
on).  Has there ever been a comics story about Mrs. Goofy? 
 I thought maybe an overseas Disney title had done a 
story...possibly at the time of the Goofy Movie's original 

I know that it's due to too many Marvel and DC comics in 
my past...but when I read a comic story featuring Goofy, 
like the witch story in the recent Mickey Mouse and 
Friends, where we see him living alone in a drafty shack 
of a house, my mind automatically wants to know "Is this 
prior to Mrs. Goofy or has he fallen so far after Max went 
to college?"  Dumb (goofy?), I know, but I just wonder if 
that lost love of the Goof was ever seen or the 
relationship ever addressed.

Thanks for reading and THANKS to Gemstone for allowing me 
to have these rediculous thoughts during the quiet times 
at my house. ;)

LUKE: Tradition is a trap that allows people to stick 
their heads in the sand. Everything in the past was so 
quaint, so charming. Times were simpler. Kids didn't have 
sex. Neighbors knew each other. It's a freaking fairy 
tale. Things sucked then too. It just sucked without 
indoor plumbing.
