Gus Goose (full name given as Gustave Goose on the theatrical release poster of the cartoon short Donald's Cousin Gus) is a lazy, and often hungry goose, who is Donald Duck's cousin, and the grandnephew of Grandma Duck.
Gus Goose first appeared in this 1939 short, where he visits his cousin Donald Duck.
In the Disney comics, Gus Goose is usually seen living on Grandma Duck's farm outside of Duckburg, where he works as her farmhand. In most adaptations, he is seen speaking properly rather than his usual honks from his animated appearances.
Gus makes a non-speaking cameo appearance at Fezziwig's Christmas party, dancing with Clara Cluck.
A character who looks like Gus is seen in the episodes "Magica's Shadow War", "Duckworth's Revolt" and "Sweet Duck of Youth". In "Sweet Duck of Youth", he is seen with other friends and relatives of Scrooge McDuck at his birthday party.
Although he never appeared on the show, his name could be seen on a punch card in "Donald's Rocket Ruckus".
Gus reappeared in animation in House of Mouse as the club's gluttonous chef. In this series, once again, Gus only speaks in honking vocal sounds rather than saying actual words.
Gus also reappeared in animation in Minnie's Bow-Toons, but unlike his previous television incarnations, he doesn't talk, nor make any noises.
