What it is: Gandy Goose cartoon
Goofy ghosts terrorize a fraidy cat and a silly goose.
Given even that the cartoons which feature Terrytoon’s most famous character (Mighty Mouse) are frequently lame, what do you expect from a cartoon of one of their lesser known characters? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Gandy Goose, but if I had, it’s easy to see why I forgot him; he is a non-entity, as is the cat he pairs up with. There’s lots of gags here, but few of them are funny, and they aren’t particularly well-timed. Personally, I thought some of the backgrounds were more interesting than the rest of the cartoon, especially near the beginning of it. This is not the animated cartoon at its most inventive.
