WOW! looney tunes, subversive as always...
9 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i was watching this today on the third golden collection DVD set, and suddenly realized that in the scene when Speedy is singing in his hole, the words to his version of "la cucaracha," are translated to English thus:

the cockroach,

the cockroach,

no longer can walk,

because he doesn't lack

because he doesn't have

any marijuana to smoke!

leave it to the guys at Termite Terrace to sneak in subversive bits of humor past censors and such.
