Gandy Goose is a Terrytoons cartoon character who first appeared in the 1938 short Gandy the Goose.[1] He is frequently paired with Sourpuss, a cat, beginning in the 1939 short Hook Link and Sinker. Sourpuss' first appearance was in the 1939 The Owl and the Pussycat. Originally voiced by composer and orchestral arranger Arthur Kay from 1939–1941, Gandy spoke in a lyrical vocal parody of radio comedian Ed Wynn while Sourpuss vocally impersonated an impatient Jimmy Durante. Their surreal adventures often showcase extended dreams, bookended by coarse bedroom arguments.

In-universe information

Gandy was used to promote the U.S. war effort during World War II. In the cartoons, Gandy Goose joined the US Army in 1941 in the cartoon "Flying Fever" and also in "The Home Guard".[2]

Gandy Goose appeared in a total of 54 cartoons between 1938 and 1955.[3] He also made two appearances in Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures (1987–1988) voiced by Patrick Pinney. A character resembling Gandy appeared in the finale of the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Gandy Goose (along with Sourpuss) is one of the only characters who didn't appear in the 1999 Terrytoons pilot Curbside. This was done to avoid comparisons to Ren and Stimpy.[citation needed]
