Mrs. Goof appeared in many 1950s-produced cartoon shorts in which her husband, Goofy, was depicted as a "family man" or "every man" character. In all of her appearances her face was unseen.
There is a widespread misconception that the television series Goof Troop once declared her to have passed away through unknown circumstances prior to that series' beginning, with Goofy supposedly telling Max that she's "up there with the stars" or "up there amongst the stars." However, this statement was never given in any episode of Goof Troop, as Max's mother was never once mentioned in the show. Officially, when asked about the subject of Max's mother, Disney's Guest Services once declared there to be "no definitive answer" as to "who Max's mother is and where "Mrs. Goofy" went".
