Goopy Geer was the first Warner Bros. featured character whose look was not closely patterned after that of Mickey Mouse. Although a promotional drawing for his first appearance shows him as a black dog, in all of his cartoons he is white. Goopy was the last recurring character in the black-and-white years of the Merrie Melodies series, starring in only three cartoons before one-shots became the norm. His cameo in Bosko in Dutch not withstanding, Goopy's unnamed girlfriend appeared in more cartoons than he did; she was also the girlfriend of Freddy the Freshman. The three roles that the versatile Goopy appeared as were a pianist, a hillbilly, and a court jester.

Goopy was resurrected along with Foxy & Roxy in the Tiny Toon Adventures episode "Two-Tone Town". In it, he reprises his original role as a pianist, although his character design is based on the aforementioned promotional drawing. A picture from this appearance can be seen on the Foxy & Roxy page.
