Trivia

Around 4:42, Speedy is heard singing a spoof of the Mexican folk song "La cucaracha" with nonsense words in odd Spanish which could be transcribed as: "La cucaracha, la cucaracha, ya no puede caminar. ¿Por qué no Fanta? ¿Por qué no tiene marijuana par fumar?" This would seem to mean: "The cockroach, the cockroach, she can't walk any more. Why not Fanta? Why doesn't she have marijuana to smoke?" The Fanta reference is the most puzzling part of the verse. But the mention of marijuana is clear, and how the artists got it past the censors would probably be a good story in itself. See more »

Goofs

Sylvester lays a sizable wedge of cheese on the ground to lure Speedy out of his hole. When Speedy takes the cheese, it has changed to a small, thin slice. See more »

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.
