Holy mother of...! They said it!
16 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In case you've ever doubted just how in-your-face the Looney Tunes cartoons were, just check out "Gonzales' Tamales". In this one, Speedy Gonzales - who, as you may have noticed from other cartoons, is a total playboy - is seducing the female mice, and making the male mice very angry. So, they get Sylvester to go after him. Needless to say, Speedy knows just how to avoid getting caught.

Anyway, the real "gotcha" moment comes towards the end. Speedy was singing "La cucaracha". Since I knew what the lyrics were, I listened to see if the people making the cartoon would use them. Sure enough, it ends with "marijuana que fumar" (meaning "marijuana to smoke")! To think that in the midst of the strict McCarthyism world of the 1950s, they sneaked in something about Mary Jane! Only the Termite Terrace crowd could do that! Overall, a really funny cartoon.
