|First appearance||Gandy the Goose (1938)|
|Created by||Paul Terry|
Gandy Goose was a classic Terrytoons cartoon character. He was frequently paired with Sourpuss, a cat, beginning in the 1939 short The Owl and the Pussycat. Voiced by composer and orchestral arranger Arthur Kay, 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 in 1941 in the cartoon "Flying Fever" and also in "The Home Guard."
Gandy Goose appeared in a total of 48 cartoons, the last being Barnyard Actor in 1955. He also made two appearances in Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures (1987-1988) and a brief cameo in the final scene of Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).
