More of Paul Carlson's "How to Draw Goofy"

Some of the interior pages from the aforementioned "How To Draw..." booklet. All of them will open in a much larger page when clicked. There are several more pages that really should be scanned, but time only permits me to do these at the moment. More later, so check back.

O dear Jenny if you draw nigh unto the scanner once more, how about those Sullivant drawings you mentioned on Eddie's blog a few days ago ? (sorry, I'm a greedy little black duck... woo-hoo !)

I remember these Goofy drawings very well. They handed these out to us at Sheridan for a walking/weight-shifting exercise. We had to animate Goofy walking in with a heavy, overflowing bucket of water, set the bucket down and relax to a seated position on a chair. These Goofy drawings were our model sheet. I remember also having the How To Draw Chip & Dale and the Donald Duck one. Must still have those around here somewhere.

Thanks for posting more pages!

This Goofy is stiffer and less--er--goofy--than the classic Art Babbit Goof, but I have a lot of fond memories for this design, or therabouts. The face in particular evokes the suburban Goofy, the Goofy with the orange Freddy Moore-designed son, and the Goofy who went to the same orthodontist as Bugs Bunny.

When you see these it just goes to show how animatable these designs were. So many of the designs today are pretty to look at but they just don't have that inherent structure and design that makes them flow like these.

I'm only in my 30's but I feel a lot of disconnect with much of the newer animation.

Hi Jenny,

Thanks for sharing these! I have been looking for decent drawing sources for the Disney characters for awhile now.

Terrific! Thanks for posting this! I prefer the Jack Kinney Goofy but this is still beautiful and worth having!

Yeah this look is based on the look of Goofy that was being used in the 1950's, especially with the face mask that goes above the eyes rather than below them. They continued using this look in a few places later on such as in the 1983 "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and the Goof Troop TV series. I always thought of this as the current look of the character personally and never questioned it's need though obviously it wasn't to last (though I think he still appears this way as the performing characters at the theme parks).
