Declining Goofy at the Disney Online Store?

I have noticed there are fewer and fewer Goofy items at the Disney online store. I have noticed there are even fewer Goofy items at the brick and mortar stores. The Shop Disney site.  The search results using 'Goofy'.

I guess this is a short blog but just an observation. I usually find more things that are related to Goofy at non-Disney sites or stores. I have a lot of Goofy items on eBay. eBay search results.

Search results at Amazon for Disney Goofy.

A Goofy Treasure Hunt?

I have noticed that it is increasingly difficult to find any items relating to the Disney character Goofy. It is a treasure hunt where the treasure has become rarer and more difficult to find. I am glad that I like the search as much as the item being sought after.

I like to check the Shop Disney store but their listings for Goofy seems to be decreasing. When one checks for Goofy items, there aren't many and some have other characters included with Goofy.

I have gone to the Disney stores at malls / shopping centers. They have even less than the Shop Disney stores. What they do have is something I have many of. It is disappointing that one travels to one yet find so little on what one is searching for.

I have found that eBay has much on Goofy. I have found a lot of my Goofy items on eBay. The prices can be reasonable too. One just has to search for items and hope the seller has a good rating.

I have found another good source to be Google Shopping (using Disney Goofy as the search names). It is how I found a variety of Goofy's dressed as different characters from different movies and my two Goofy phones and other items that I have.

I have found another good source - similar to Google Shopping - with Bing Shopping (using Disney Goofy as the search words).

I am one of the few guys who enjoys shopping; especially for things related to Disney Goofy and Coca Cola (the topic for another blog).

It seems I am not alone in this seemingly futile search for all things Goofy. I am hoping Disney will come out with more Goody items and realizes that Goofy is one of the main characters and keeps him around for a long time.

Why I like Goofy

I like Disney's Goofy. Of the Disney characters, he is the most adult like one. 

I like how Goofy is doesn't give up. He has determination even he goofs up or fumbles around in his attempts to do things. There are times his determination will result in something good or positive.  In the different short films and the two main movies, his determination results in some really funny situations and results. He got there by not giving up so easily. 

Goofy is a cartoon character I could - in some ways - relate to. He is a good nature person who cares about those around him. 

I like how he tries to do the right thing. He might not do the right thing correctly but he does do it in a funny and humorous way. Sometimes the result might not be as Goofy wants but he learns from the experience. 

These are just some of my observations. I do not know if the those who originated Goofy had these in mind when they did. They changed him from a minor character to a major one. It seems he is becoming a minor one - at best - since there are so few Goofy things at the Disney store and no real Goofy movies since A Goofy Movie and An Extremely Goofy Movie. 

Big Goofy Guy is my personal web site since I am big, a guy and I like Goofy. I had Big Warp Guy (still used on some sites) but OS/2 Warp is no longer around (was replaced by eComStation then ArcaOS (was formerly Blue Lion). 

Here is Goofy with his son Max. 

Here is Goofy's and Max's neighbors and friends; Peter and PJ and family. They were part of Goof Troop. Peter and PJ were part of the two Goofy movies. 

Since I like Disney's Goofy, I created an online web site with Goofy as part of the name.

Goofy at iBroidery?

I found this site that has 5000 designs for sale. The site is called iBroidery. They have a lot of Disney designs. They have a neat projects page.
This is really nice. I like this one.

This is the classic Goofy head. There are so many to chose from. 

I am a fan of Disney's Goofy. I did a search for Goofy at the iBroidery site. Here is the search results at iBroidery; Goofy results.

Goofy Flash Drive?

It is not easy to find items / collectibles for Disney's Goofy. I have discovered a couple of Goofy flash drives - flash drives that are shaped like Goofy. I did find one from Tribe. It is neat looking.
I found another from Garunk that is really nice. I think it is more inline with the character.
Here is another from Pendrive Origianl. It looks really nice. It is more cute than it being more character like.

Goofy items seem to be on the way out. I have checked the Disney online store. They do not seem to have a lot of Goofy items and it gets less over time. Goofy will always be popular with me. 

I used to have a Goofy theme for my computer but it is unusable when Microsoft upgraded to the newer Win 7, 8 and 10. It was really nice. I found one for Windows 7 and 10.

One of the ID's I use online is BigGoofyGuy. It is also the name of my website.

Big Disney Goofy Guy - introduction

I am a guy who is big and a fan of Disney's Goofy. I think Goofy is funny and cool. I like how he does not usually give up but keeps on trying even though messes up. I find the character to be encouraging.

It is not easy to find Goofy items / collectibles. I find a lot on eBay but not a lot at the Disney store (off line or online). I do like searching for them. I guess the fun in collecting is only part having the item and part looking for them. My collection is small but nice. I did find a Goofy head pillow at Walmart (many years ago) but was not able to find another till recently at Boston Comic Con (2016).
I loved the songs in this movie.
I loved the songs on this movie too. I really liked the part where Goofy does disco. 

I have the movies A Goofy Movie and An Extremely Goofy Movie on VHS, VCD and DVD, and the soundtrack of movies on CD. I am hoping it comes out on blue ray and that one can download it or buy it on a SD card / flash drive.

Disney Wiki Goofy has information on Goofy. There is also some information on Wikipedia - Goofy.

I wanted Big Goofy Guy but it seems it was taken (the Google Blog that is but I do have a web site titled Big Goofy Guy with Homestead. It is more than just on Goofy but also about me and my interests).
