Indexer Notes

A comic book adaptation of the "Walt Disney Presents" episode "The Goofy Success Story." One sequence shows Goofy signing a contract as "Dippy Dawg," only to have the studio change his name to Goofy. Dippy Dawg was Goofy's original name in the 1930s cartoons. Another part is a parody of "Person to Person" with live TV cameras showing Goofy's mansion to a network audience. Part of the last panel is Dell's "A Pledge to Parents."
