    Smile They did the same thing to Goofy

    Hello. I don't follow Nate's joke in the story. Do you know what happened to Goofy a few years ago?
    Thank you.

    from Pluto by R. J. Palacio-----------------
    "You told me Pluto was one of the nine planets!" Auggie yelled at Isabel.
    "You said it was the littlest planet in the solar system!"
    "It is, sweetness," Isabel answered, trying to get him to calm down.
    "No, it's not, Mom," Via said. "They changed Pluto's planetary status in 2006.
    It is no longer considered one of the nine planets in our solar system."
    Isabel blinked at Via, and then she looked at Nate. "Really?"
    "I knew that," Nate answered seriously. "They did the same thing to Goofy a few years ago."
    This made all the adults laugh.

    Goofy and Pluto are both Walt Disney characters.

    Yes, they're both dogs, although Goofy is more anthropomorphized than Pluto. However, Pluto is arguably the smarter of the two.
