Run-of-the-mill Speedy cartoon that fails to deliver on an initially promising premise
9 January 2009 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Friz Freleng's 'Gonzales' Tamales' is a typically so-so Speedy Gonzales cartoon. It seemed to be Sylvester's fate to be paired with some of the least funny characters in the Warner Bros. repertoire and the poor gringo pussy cat got lumbered with Speedy for a long time, until he was finally relieved of that duty by Daffy Duck, bizarrely enough. 'Gonzales' Tamales' actually starts out promisingly with an interesting premise: all the other Mexican mice are tired of Speedy taking all their women so they decide to dispose of him. How? Therein lies the cartoon's problem. They decide to manipulate Sylvester into chasing Speedy out of town, at which point 'Gonzales' Tamales' becomes a standard Speedy and Sylvester cartoon, in which Sylvester tries to lure Speedy out of his hole in a variety of different ways. While there are a couple of laughs (I particularly like a scene in which Sylvester attempts to shoot Speedy only for the mouse to quickly dismantle the gun piece by piece), 'Gonzales' Tamales' largely seems like old hat. Even as a child when I loved even the dullest Sylvester and Tweety cartoon, I was disappointed when a Speedy cartoon came on and that feeling hasn't left me. 'Gonzales' Tamales' is just another in a long line of Speedy clangers.
