BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: Goofy's ferociously intelligent nephew who often stays with him. Gilbert was first introduced, with a bang (literally), in the Dell Four Color # 562 when he came to stay with his uncle Goofy for a vacation. When he was late arriving Goofy and Mickey looked all over town for Gilbert. After an explosion occurs at the local Scientific Research Laboratories Gilbert is thrown clear and land atop his uncle. Tattered and charred scientists give chase to Gilbert anbd Goofy assumes the worse. Gilbert confesses to causing the explosion, but the scientists extol their amzement upon Gilbert and plead with him to join their crew. Without an ounce of humility Gilbert declines their offer so he can spend time with his "lovable...though dumb...uncle Goofy." Mickey gives Goofy and Gilbert some tickets for a local television program which turns out to be a quiz show. Gilbert becomes a contestant and finds he cannot answer a simple nursery rhyme (what follows, "Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the...."?) It becomes painfully clear that Gilbert sorely lacks an understanding of the simplest of educations and decides he must stay on with his Uncle until he completes his schooling. One morning, after realizing his uncle hadn't been home all night, Gilbert went out searching for him. Bumping into Super Goof he asks for the hero's aid in finding Goofy. At that same moment the effects of the "super goobers" wore off revealing to Gilbert that his uncle and Super Goof were one and the same. At the same time Super Goof's reputation had fallen into disrepute so Goofy confides to Gilbert the secret of his powers. Gilbert then consumes super goobers and is imbued with super-powers, becomes Super Goof's sidekick and calls himself "Super Gilly" ("Super Goof" #5 in "The Twister Resisters").
