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 Donald Duck.
Within the Disney comics, Gus Goose was 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 appearance in Disney cartoons. He has been seen dating Clara Cluck on a few occasions.
Gus makes a non-speaking cameo appearance at Fezziwig's Christmas party.
A character who looks like Gus is seen in the episodes Magica's Shadow War, Duckworth's Revolt and Sweet Duck of Youth. Despite he's never named, we're sure he is Gus Goose and not juste a lookalike character because in Sweet Duck of Youth, he's seen with other parents en friends of Scrooge McDuck at his birthday party.
Although he never appeared on the show, his name was mentioned on a punch card in "Donald's Rocket Ruckus".
Gus finally reappeared in animation in House of Mouse, as the club's gluttonous chef who again only speaks in honking vocal sounds rather than saying human words.
