    Dippy Dawg (Goofy) Character Development Drawing Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1932). Mickey's guffawing pal Goofy was originally known as Dippy Dawg. His first appearance in Mickey's Revue (1932) had him as an older character wearing glasses, but by his second short, The Whoopee Party (also 1932), he got a little younger, and looked like the image on this original character development drawing, done in graphite on a sheet of slightly trimmed 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Goofy would wear his vest buttoned and without pants only in The Whoopee Party and Touchdown Mickey, so we feel pretty confident this is from one of those shorts; it's one of the earliest drawings of this beloved character we've seen to date. The art has a full-figure size of approximately 5.5" tall, with no other markings on the page. Condition is Very Good, with handling wear, tack holes in the upper corners, and small stains well away from the image.
