Maleficent's Goons are a simple-minded race of orc/tengu like creatures that carry out Maleficent's will, and the tertiary antagonists of Sleeping Beauty. They were originally voiced by the late Candy Candido, the late Pinto Colvig, and the late Bobby Amsberry (his last role since he was murdered in a car crash in 1957).


Sleeping Beauty[]

The Goons are instructed to find Princess Aurora for the next sixteen years, but due to their stupidity, they thought they are looking for a baby the whole time. Maleficent learns this sixteen years after the beginning of the search. Enraged at their incompetence, Maleficent brutally attacks them with dark magic. Later on, they learn Aurora dwells at Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather's cottage and seek out to capture her. Instead, they abduct Prince Phillip, who was visiting Aurora. They take him to the Forbidden Mountains to hold him captive so that he would not be able to awaken Aurora from her sleep. As Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather arrive and free Phillip, Diablo and the Goons attempt to stop them in their tracks. However, due to the fairies' magic, their weapons were transformed into harmless entities. It is unknown what happened to them after Maleficent's death and Princess Aurora's awakening from the spell.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit[]

The Goons are seen crossing past Eddie Valiant in the Maroon Cartoon studio lot in the beginning scene of the film.

House of Mouse[]

The Goons were cameo characters in the show, mostly appearing in crowd scenes. Their most notable appearance is in the episode "Halloween with Hades", where Hades sees them being scolded by Maleficent, who strikes them with her staff, sending them back to the castle. They are also present in Mickey's House of Villains

Video game appearances[]

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep[]

Maleficent's goons make an appearance in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. While Ventus and Aqua explore the Enchanted Dominion, they are seen to guard their mistress's castle with their lives.

They are first seen in Ventus's scenario when he rushes at them when they guard the hall housing Aurora's captive heart. When Aqua is helping Prince Phillip escape, hundreds of goons came to stop them, but none were successful.

After the events of the game, they are never seen again in other games of the continuity. This is largely because Maleficent learned to summon and control the much more powerful Heartless, and thus favored them instead of her previous servants, leaving them to their own endeavors in the Enchanted Dominion.
