Goofy said "Wow! A cat that walks and talks!". Why Goofy should be surprised on that because he's a dog that walks and talks. Felix looks annoyed on this and he may thinking, "What a dumb dog!". Also retro Goofy did have a tail, a short, stubby, bushy tail, but in the later cartoons Goofy doesn't have a tail. Just like Pete because Pete did have a tail in the earlier cartoons have a tail, but a few years Pete doesn't have a tail anymore.
