Since 1987's "Soccermania" has yet to be released in the U.S., I have to move on to 1990's "The Prince and the Pauper".
Here we find Goofy co-starring as himself, a good friend of Mickey's. When Mickey switches places with the Prince, Goofy has no idea and overwhelms the Prince with a greeting that the royal mouse is not accustomed to.
It is interesting to say that Goofy is quite the hero in this film, since it is he that saves the Prince and Donald from the dungeon. Physical comedy, of course, is abound whenever Goofy is on screen.
Obviously, this film deserves to be in a Mickey tribute (which is on my "to do" list), but I had to mention it here for Goofy's role in this very entertaining cartoon.
