Athletic Profile: Clarabelle Cow, Wild Mavericks, Wide Receiver, Defensive End.
Clarabelle is one of Minnie Mouse’s best friends and is usually depicted as the girlfriend of Horace Horsecollar, although she has also been paired with Goofy occasionally. Clarabelle has remained a supporting character in the United States; only in Italy has she been treated as a major character.
Clarabelle Cow is a character created by Walt Disney in cooperation with Ub Iwerks. Clarabelle is a cow and was part of the Original Mickey Mouse cartoon cast. Her character is not to be confused with her non-anthropomorphic look-alike, Caroline Cow. She is the best friend to both Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, as well as the girlfriend of Horace Horsecollar. She later began dating Goofy in the late 1960s.
Like many of the older Disney characters, Clarabelle Cow started as an unnamed character in the background. In her first appearance, Alice on the Farm from 1926, Clarabelle was just a prop for one of Ub Iwerks’ jokes having the character Julius the Cat trying to get milk from her. Her next appearance was a little closer to becoming Clarabelle. In Plane Crazy from 1928, some say, it was her who starred as a cow named Carolyn, but the name was only used this one time. The name Clarabelle Cow did not occur until the sixth cartoon, The Shindig from 1930. Clarabelle appeared in a handful of cartoons until Symphony Hour from 1942 after which she was not seen in cartoons until Prince and the Pauper from 1990 (apart from a cameo in Who Framed Roger Rabbit in 1988). This was a single occurrence in cartoons and it wasn’t until Mickey Mouse Works in 1999 and the following House of Mouse she started having a recurring appearance, and not a very prominent one. There are no information available yet on who did the voice in the original cartoons. In Prince and the Pauper it was Elvia Allman and from 1999 until the present day it has been April Winchell.
