A Goofy Movie is a 1995 American animated musical comedy film produced by Disney MovieToons and Walt Disney Television Animation. The animated directorial debut of Kevin Lima, the film is based on The Disney Afternoon television series Goof Troop created by Robert Taylor and Michael Peraza Jr.,[1][2] and serves as a standalone follow-up to the show. It features the voices of Jason Marsden, Bill Farmer, Jim Cummings, Kellie Martin, Pauly Shore, Jenna von Oÿ, and Wallace Shawn. The film was also dedicated to Pat Buttram, who died during the film's production. Taking place a few years after the events of Goof Troop, A Goofy Movie follows Goofy and his son, Max, who is now in high school, and revolves around the father-son relationship between the two as Goofy embarks on a misguided mission to bond with his son by taking him on a cross-country fishing trip, impeding Max's social life by taking him away from his friends, in particular his high school crush Roxanne.

Disney came up with the idea to make a theatrical animated film starring Goofy while considering ideas for a potential Goof Troop TV special. Lima wanted to expand out Goofy as a character and "give him an emotional side" that would resonate with audiences. Much of the cast from the show reprised their roles, including Farmer as Goofy, Paulsen as PJ, and Cummings as Pete, whereas Dana Hill was replaced by Marsden as Max's voice due to the character's age difference. R&B artist Tevin Campbell provided the vocals for Powerline, a fictional celebrity musician who prominently appears in the movie, performing the songs "Stand Out" and "I2I".

A Goofy Movie was released theatrically on April 7, 1995 by Walt Disney Pictures, and made $37 million at the box office. It received mixed reviews, and because it was greenlit by the recently fired Jeffrey Katzenberg, the film's release was deemed by Disney to be merely a contractual obligation. A direct-to-video sequel to the film titled An Extremely Goofy Movie was released on February 29, 2000. However, with its home media release, the film garnered a cult following, particularly among millennials who grew up with the film, and since 2015 it has become a much more visible property within Disney.
