    Has anyone ever asked this question? Goofy and Pluto are two Disney cartoon creations. Both are dogs yet one goes around on all fours barking like a dog while the other walks on two legs and acts like a human speaking in English.

    Both of them have even appeared in the same cartoons acting in the manner described above. Is there a riddle to this? Is Disney messing with our heads? Or am I just looking at too many cartoons?

    Perhaps they were trying to hint at the nature of man using that clever little cartoon metaphor.

    quite funny: when i watched it as a kid, i used to think he was a cow. this is because he was sometimes with clarabelle cow and they looked somewhat similar to me. so thanks for teaching me something new in this thread. sorry that i cant contribute to the answer of your question 😉
