Storyline

A pair of not-too-bright Mexican cats, one shorter-tempered than the other, decide to chase Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in all Mexico. And when their schemes - involving use of guitars, a fishing rod, dynamite, and land mines - all backfire, they decide to try catching Slowpoke Rodriguez, Mexico's slowest mouse. But the short-tempered cat learns too late that Slowpoke packs a gun. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The best of the Speedy Gonzales shorts

This cartoon, nominated for an Oscar, is the best of the Spedy Gonzales cartoon shorts that were made in the Golden Age of Warner Brothers. I saw this cartoon again recently and found it was much better than I originally thought it was years ago. The highlight of the cartoon for me has to be the appearance of "Slowpoke" Rodriguez, one of Speedy's cousins. Hilarious! Cartoon Network may or may not air this one. A bit difficult to find but well worth the effort. Recommended.
