Storyline

A topical (at the time) cartoon featuring a madcap, slapstick baseball game between a USA team, featuring Gandy Goose and his pal Sourpuss, taking on the Mexican League Bulls, featuring bulls of course. This was made when there were only a few African-Americans and not very many Hispanics playing on major league teams in the American and National Leagues, and also when the Mexican League was drawing some top-flight American ballplayers south of the border by paying more money. The Mexican League threat didn't last long, but several major-league stars took the jump. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Strangest baseball game I've ever seen-even in a cartoon!
18 November 2015 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a cartoon in the Gandy Goose series produced by Terrytoons. There will be spoilers ahead:

This one's pretty good, but very strange. Gandy and Sourpuss are headed to Mexico to play baseball. They're the only two players on their team and they're playing the Mexican Bulls-a team composed of bulls!

Most of the standard gags you would expect in a baseball cartoon are here. The ball acting strangely, a high pop up clears the crescent moon, Gandy even does an old Tex Avery bit as the catcher one time. The bulls put Mexican jumping beans in the ball in order to stop it from being hit, but it backfires.

The game belongs to the two stars and the bulls are down 21 to nothing when they go into the bottom of the ninth and the game gets even stranger, if that's possible. One of the bulls does one last ditch attempt to salvage the game for the bulls, which leads to a pretty funny ending, so I won't spoil it here, even if the gag's a retread.

This cartoon is worth watching.
