Gabby lives in the Okiedokie Swamp, which is a play on Lake Okeechobee and is near Cape Canaveral. Unfortunately for him, this place does not have many food options, and Gabby is forced to attract the food (usually Woody Woodpecker) to his home and attempt to capture him with anything he might have at hand, including highly advanced technology. Though Gabbie Gator is intelligent and crafty, Woody always escapes, usually leaving Gabby with his home destroyed. The most strange thing about Gabby Gator is that he seems to have a vast supply of carrots, which are useless for a carnivorous reptile.
Gabby Gator first appeared as a prototype in Everglade Raid. In that short, Gabby tries to cook Woody for lunch. The prototype version of Gabby appeared again in Romp in a Swamp. Gabby's first official appearance was in Southern Fried Hospitality when he caught Woody because he did not eat much.
However, Gabby did not became as famous as Woody's renowned enemies like Buzz Buzzard and Wally Walrus. His final theatrical appearance was in Greedy Gabby Gator in 1963. He was replaced by Miss Meaney.
