Goofy is a funny animal cartoon character created in 1932 at Walt Disney Productions. Goofy is a tall, anthropomorphic dog, and typically wears a turtle neck and vest, with pants, shoes, white gloves, and a tall hat originally designed as a rumpled fedora. Goofy is a close friend of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and is one of Disney's most popular characters. He is normally characterized as extremely clumsy and dim-witted, yet this interpretation isn't always definitive; occasionally Goofy is shown as intuitive and clever, albeit in his own unique, eccentric way.
Probably one of the most frequent questions about Goofy is his difference between Pluto. Goofy is anthropomorphic, Pluto is not. In effect, for plot purposes, you can think of Goofy as a human, and Pluto as a dog. Pluto is a dog that basically acts like a dog. Over-thinking about it sure makes it odd. It's just a cartoon.
Merriam-Webster defines the word goofy as being crazy, ridiculous, or mildly ludicrous, or silly.
