Gandy Goose was a classic Terrytoons cartoon character. He was frequently paired with Sourpuss, a cat, beginning in the 1939 short G-Man Jitters. Sourpuss' first appearance was in the 1939 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.
