About

It’s Goofy Time! is a series of exploitable comics based on a single-pane illustration from the webcomic series The Parking Lot is Full originally published in 1998. The comic spawned an extensive collection of variations featuring alternative characters and captions when a blank template version of the illustration was posted on 4chan’s /b/ (random) board in 2007.

Origin

The single-pane comic was originally published as part of the webcomic series The Parking Lot Is Full[1] illustrated by artist Jack McLaren and written by Pat Spacek. Described as crudely drawn with a touch of macabre, the webcomic gained a sizable cult following through its run from 1993 to 2002. The comic, which portrayed the Disney character Goofy as an abusive father figure intruding upon his son’s room with a belt in his hand, was first published on March 6th, 1998.


  

Spread

The earliest known reference to “It’s Goofy Time” can be found in an Urban Dictionary entry[16] for the phrase submitted on March 27th 2003. Th entry defined the phrase as indicative of a despicable act of child abuse. The illustration was submitted to the GIF art-sharing community YTMND[2] by user newsnm on May 12th, 2004. It spawned a number of duplicate sites featuring custom background music in the following year, though it never took off as a fad within the YTMND community. It also began to spread across the online artist community DeviantART[3] as early as in March 2006 and reached WolfGaming forum and KillerMovies forum[5] in September and December 2006 respectively. However, the user-custom versions didn’t emerge until it was posted on 4chan’s /b/ (random) board[6] on January 14th, 2007.


  

The thread generated more than 60 variations of the comic, many of them featuring other iconic characters from 4chan such as Mudkip, Prince of Bel-Air and the Dancing Banana among others. The comic was featured in another 4chan /b/ thread titled “now you can’t unsee them”[7] on July 10th, 2007. A fanfiction thread featuring stories of an abusive Goofy character was posted onto 4chan’s /co/ (cartoon) board [8] on November 23rd, 2008. The original comic was posted in a Bodybuilding forum[11] thread on December 19th that same year. The YouTube version[12] was uploaded on February 24th, 2007 by user gromitflash. The single serving site Its.GoofyTi.me was registered on November 13th, 2009.
