Today In Disney History ~ April 20th
“Goof Troop was originally previewed on The Disney Channel from April 20, 1992 into July 12 of that year. Like its predecessors DuckTales, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin and Darkwing Duck and its successor Bonkers, Goof Troop was previewed in syndication (on September 5, 1992) with a pilot TV movie, which later aired as a multi-part serial during the regular run. The series aired on The Disney Afternoon block of syndicated animated series during the 1992/1993 broadcast season; concurrent with the Disney Afternoon shows, another 13 episodes aired on Saturday mornings on ABC in 1992. Reruns of the series later aired on The Disney Channel (starting on September 3, 1996), and later on sister cable channel Toon Disney. Reruns were shown on Toon Disney until January 2005. The program made a return from September 2006 until August 2008, and the Christmas special still aired on Christmas (although it is unknown if the special will ever be shown on Toon Disney’s replacement Disney XD) in the United States.
Goof Troop was adapted into the feature film A Goofy Movie (1995) and its direct-to-video sequel, An Extremely Goofy Movie (2000). Both films are spin-offs of the series and take place a few years after the series. The two movies featured Bill Farmer, Rob Paulsen and Jim Cummings reprising their character roles from Goof Troop in these two movies, with Jason Marsden providing the voice of a now-teenager Max. Dana Hill, who provided the voice of Max, died on July 15, 1996 at the age of 32, after suffering a massive stroke related to her diabetes.
The Goof Troop premise was also incorporated into 1999’s Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas and it’s 2004 sequel, Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas, the latter continuing Max’s age-progression to a young adult that has recently started dating and is reluctantly bringing his girlfriend home to meet his father.”
