Storyline

A hungry crow intrudes on a party honoring Speedy Gonzales, Mexico's fastest mouse, and tries to catch and eat some of Speedy's friends. Speedy leads the crow on a frustrating and violent chase that demoralizes the crow into surrendering and joining in Speedy's party, as the center of a dart board, and the target of a ball-throw.

must have been Daffy's relative
16 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When the mice set up a mini-carnival for Cinco de Mayo, a loopy vulture (or crow; I'm sure not totally sure which he was) attacks, thereby prompting Speedy Gonzales to spring into action. And he does...with a vengeance! The great part is knowing what's going to happen, and watching it play out.

I noticed that the vulture/crow had a face very similar to Daffy Duck. Maybe this was a preview of the Speedy/Daffy cartoons in the mid to late '60s. Or maybe it's just a coincidence. Overall, "Tortilla Flaps" is a really fun cartoon. They must have had a lot of fun filming it.

I guess that lots of things can hurt people's pride.

PS: I know that "exito" was just supposed to be "exit" with O on the end, but that word actually is Spanish for "success".
