Horace in Animation

He appeared frequently from 1930 to 1932 and less frequently afterward, making his final classic-era bow in 1942. In his earliest incarnation, Horace was presented as Mickey Mouse's four-legged plow horse. He could walk upright on his hind legs, at which time his forelegs became gloved hands; at other times, he got back down on all fours and reverted to form. Horace mostly played bit-part characters in the approximately 30 cartoon shorts in which he appeared, and his character was never as fully developed as the "Fab Five." Like Goofy in his early Dippy appearances, Horace's body seemed to be formed of rubber tubing. He and Clarabelle had an uncanny ability to change from somewhat normal farmyard animals into anthropomorphized beings as necessary. In film he has been most recently seen in "The Prince and the Pauper" where he had a bigger role as Mickey's pompous tutor. And as with most Disney characters, he was given small cameos in Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).

Horace in Comics

Horace has never really been more than a supporting character, though he has starred in numerous European comic book stories of his own. In these, he plays a much bigger role than elsewhere: often accompanying Mickey on his many sleuthing adventures or acting as Clarabelle Cow's paramour and fiance. Clarabelle and Horace were engaged in the comics according to some 1931 and 1932 continuities, but neither ever followed through. For a brief time, during the late 1960s, Clarabelle began dating Goofy, perhaps in an attempt to give Goofy a girlfriend. During this time Horace's whereabouts are unknown. Toward the end of this time Clarabelle's status with Goofy was challenged by another dogface named Glory-Bee and Clarabelle seems to have returned to her former paramour, Horace. A character of a book, play, movie, TV show or other form of storytelling usually used only to give dimension to a main character, by adding a relationship with this character, although sometimes supporting characters may develop a complexity of their own. ...
