Pretty good despite the simple art style.
26 September 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like many of the Warner Brothers cartoons of the late 1950s, the beautiful backgrounds and gorgeous animation were giving way to a UPA-style of cartoon making--with crappy backgrounds and simpler characters. While this particular cartoon is still very watchable, it's not up to the quality standards of the studios cartoons from just a few years earlier.

This is a Speedy Gonzales cartoon. I am NOT a huge fan of this character, so keep this in mind--if you love him, I am sure your opinion will probably be a bit more favorable--though I did enjoy it. However, apparently Speedy and his alcoholic friends are not politically correct, as the film had an added speech in the prologue about hurtful stereotypes. However, I saw this same cartoon many times as a child and never once assumed all Mexicans (or Mexican mice) were alcoholics nor did they run at 100 miles per hour! And, unless you are VERY thin-skinned, I think you'll enjoy the heck out of this violent little cartoon (yeah, violence!). It's quite funny and very good despite the budget cutbacks at Looney Tunes.
