Description

The fastest mouse in all of Mexico makes his way to iTunes in this exclusive collection of 15 Looney Tunes shorts. Produced and directed from 1953 to 1964 by legendary animator Fritz Freleng, these unforgettable episodes include Speedy Gonzales’s animation debut in 1953 with “Cat-Tails for Two,” followed by the 1955 Academy Award® winner “Speedy Gonzales” which introduced Sylvester the Cat (or “El Gringo Pussygato” to Senor Gonzales) as Speedy’s regular arch nemesis whose attempts to guard a Mexican cheese factory are foiled time and again by a certain very rapid rodent. Also making an appearance in this classic compendium is Speedy’s lethargic cousin, Slowpoke Rodriguez, who ambles his way through “Mexicali Shmoes” and “Mexican Boarders.” With special appearances by other one-of-a-kind characters like El Vulturo, the Bandito Bird and more, the fleet-footed comic-adventures of Speedy Gonzales are not to be missed. So, what are you waiting for? Ándale! Arriba!

  • Not offensive, but not speaking Spanish either

    As a Mexican-American, I never found this to be offensive. Now that I'm an adult, ok it does have some stereotypes (attire, pathetic Tex-Mex dialect like "Beeg" or "Scienteefic", etc) but Speedy Gonzales is the good guy, so I still stand by my first sentence. My only major gripe is the Closed Captioning when they are "speaking Spanish." That's not Spanish, it's broken Spanish, and they should've known better. Still, enjoy for what it is: funny, silly, and a bit absurd.

    One of the last major characters in the Looney Tunes stable, the Mexican rodent first appeared in 1953's "Cat-Tails for Two", but he looks different than the Speedy we know. The modern design of Speedy Gonzales first appeared in his self-titled Oscar-winning short, a classic that (in my opinion) every kid should see. Speedy also scored Oscar nominations for "Tabasco Road", "Mexicali Shmoes", and "The Pied Piper of Guadalupe", three other highlights of this set. Ironically, while Warner Bros. pushed Speedy into the background for a few years out of political correctness, Speedy's native country is actually quite fond of him. He is also known for going out with "everybody's sister", which becomes a key plot point of "Gonzales' Tamales".
