Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the release of Disney's A Goofy Movie. In celebration, here are some fun facts that you may not know about the movie about a goof and his son.

Jason Marsden played more than one animal in his career

While he did play Max, he also played Thackary Binx voice (as a cat) in Hocus Pocus, reprised his role of Max many times, and was the voice of Kovu in Lion King II: Simba's Pride

The character of Powerline was based on both Prince and Michael Jackson

Quite a lot to live up to there.

P.J.'s initials stand for something very simple

He's named after his father, and his name is "Pete Junior."

Hidden Mickey:

Max has a Mickey Mouse phone on his dresser and he appears in the crowd at the Powerline concert.

Powerline's costume is a parody of outfits worn by a famous band

The group Devo would dress up in HazMat costumes.

This movie is the only time that Star Trek is referenced by Disney

Slightly awkward now that they own Star Wars.

This movie answers the question "Where does Goofy live?"

According to the road trip map, they are from Columbus, Ohio.
