I Gopher You is a 1954 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.


The Goofy Gophers have their vegetables stolen by a group of vandals. They spy a convoy of Ajax Produce Co. trucks leaving the farm so they follow them in hopes of retrieving their foods. They soon arrive at Ajax food processing plant number five and are awed by the giant, complex machinery. In their investigation of the facility they survive several trips through the various processing machines. After their encounter with the dehydrating machine they decide to bring home their vegetables in this new compact form. Back home, their burrow is stacked full of packages of dehydrated vegetables until a mishap while fetching water sends a torrent down their hole, causing a vegetable explosion.



  • This is the first Goofy Gophers cartoon where the gophers don't face antagonist characters (such as dogs). The other cartoon with such nature is "Lumber Jerks".
  • The factory settings would later be reused in the 1963 Speedy Gonzales cartoon "Chili Weather" and the Bugs Bunny Cartoon, "The Unmentionables".
  • Recently, Cartoon Network Japan aired an un-released restored print of the cartoon made by WB. Until now, the print was never released to the public in any form. This CN Japan print can currently be found on Dailymotion.
