Gandy Goose was a classic Terrytoons cartoon character. His first appearance was Gandy the Goose in 1938. He started to be frequently paired up with Sourpuss, a cat, beginning in the 1939 short Hook Line and Sinker. Voiced by composer and orchestral arranger Arthur Kay (1881-1969), Gandy's voice was an imitation of comedian Ed Wynn. Their surreal adventures often showcase extended dreams, bookended by coarse bedroom arguments.
Gandy Goose appeared in a total of 48 cartoons, the last being Barnyard Actor in 1955.
Gandy Goose makes a brief cameo in the final scene of Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) along with other famous toons.
His latest appearance was in Mighty Mouse The New Adventures. In the series, he was thawed out of ice after 43 years and had to adjust to living in the 1980s. He starts looking for Sourpuss and eventually reunites with him as orchestrated by Mighty Mouse. Gandy and Sourpuss are also implied to be in a romantic relationship.
