Gandy Goose was a classic Terrytoonscartoon character. He was frequently paired with Sourpuss, a cat, beginning in the 1939 short The Owl and the Pussycat. 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.
Gandy was used to promote the US war effort during World War II. In cartoons Gandy Goose joined the US Army 1941 in the cartoon "Flying Fever" and also in "The Home Guard."
