A Goofy Movie Valentines: Happiness is a Warm Humanoid Puppy
A Goofy Movie debuted in April of 1995, but these Valentines were available in February of the same year. Goofy and his son Max were the stars of the 1992 Disney Afternoon series, Goof Troop. The father and son spent the film traveling across the United States, ultimately arriving at a high-energy rock concert featuring Max's favorite musician, Powerline.
A Goofy Movie ditched the setting and most of the elements of the Goof Troop series. The film retained Goofy, Max, neighbor Pete, and Pete's son, PJ. Gone were Pete's wife and daughter (Peg and Pistol) and Waffles (Goofy's cat) and Chainsaw (the Pete family's pet dog).
Max later appeared in An Extremely Goofy Movie, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, and the TV series, House of Mouse.
Max has been regularly featured in merchandise for Disney's California Adventure and the Tokyo Disney Resort.
