There Are A Lot Of Laughs In Here!, 15 January 2012
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

Why are there a lot of laughs? Because there just happen to be a whole lot of laughs!, it is a very hysterical cartoon short to laugh at! Well anyway, it's time for me to get on with my review of this cartoon from 1955. Speedy Gonzales is an absolutely hilarious animated Looney Tunes cartoon short film, in the course of only a few minutes, there are laughs all over the place! There are laughs here, they are laughs there, there are laugh everywhere! I repeat, there are laughs here, there, and everywhere! And when I say laughs, I mean big laughs, VERY big laughs!

In this short, Starving Mexican mice want access to a cheese factory guarded by Sylvester Cat and send for Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in all Mexico, to breeze past Sylvester and obtain the cheese for them. And boy, does Speedy Gonzales takes us on a carnival ride of laughs during the course of this cartoon. There are so many laughs in this short, that I can't count how many. When you watch this, you will totally and completely see what I mean by there being a whole lot of laughs in this hilarious cartoon!

Well all in all, this cartoon is one of the funniest Looney Tunes cartoon shorts of the 1950's, and it is one of my favorite Looney Tunes cartoon shorts. Like I said in the previous paragraph, you will see what I mean when you watch this. When you watch this, the chances are you are going to be laughing yourself silly! Yes, this short really is that funny, no wait, it is hysterical! Well anyway, get ready to laugh your head off, and watch Speedy Gonzales! Watch this short and enjoy it, because I know that you will!

10/10
