Who knew there was a cult of GOOFUS out there! People playing it on ukuleles, foxtrot versions, a band named after Goofus and of course -- hillbillies galore! There was a "Goofus Bird" the official insignia of GOOFUS CLUBS OF AMERICA. There's a reference to Goofus in the movie The Road To Singapore starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. When they arrived at their hut, Bing bounces on a creaky old bed, hits the mattress and proclaims... "Soft as goofus feathers"!
Also check out Red Nichols and His Five Pennies with their great version of Goofus.
