Goofy Gophers - " indubitably "
When you mix the traits of pathological politeness with a dash of inquisitiveness and occasional maliciousness along with the vocal talents of Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg - you get Warner Brothers' GOOFY GOPHERS. They were featured in nine Looney Tunes films from 1947 through 1965 and later called "Mac and Tosh".
Designed by Warner Brothers director Bob Clampett as an antidote to Disney's sacharrine Chip 'n Dale, these pesky yet extremely well-mannered gophers were inspired by movie actors Edward Everett Horton and Franklin Pangborn.
