Bob Gregory recorded WHO THREW MUSH IN GRANDPA'S WHISKERS (Note: some sources report no "the" in the title) on Feb. 4 1929. It was released as OKEH 45473 b/w HOOPIE SCOOPIE.
Jerry Sears & Peg LaCentra recorded WHO THREW THE MUSH IN GRANDPA'S WHISKERS? on Oct. 20, 1938, It was released as Bluebird 10050 b/w BIG MOUTH MINNIE.
ASCAP.com says the songwriters were Vernon Dalhart, Joseph M. Davis, and Bobby Gregory.
I have also found references to songs called—
WHO THREW MUSH IN FATHER'S WHISKERS?
WHO THREW MUSH IN NELLIE'S EYE?
WHO THREW MUSH IN WILLIE'S EYE?
—although I think those titles may be fictional or mistaken.
