Question about English (US)

I learned today that both "goofy" and "silly" are insults but very mild. I have always thought they aren't insults at all. Goofy is even a Disney character. Anyway, if that's true tell me examples of "silly" and "goofy" as insults and not insuls and more imporantly, what is the major difference between them? What kind of context "must be" so that they are either insults or friendly/playful thing?
