Although "To Itch His Own" is the last cartoon to credit Carl Stalling as composer for the Looney Tunes series, this short was partially scored by Carl Stalling as well, though he was not credited. The info comes from the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers, and Publishers. See more »
Slowpoke Rodrigues? He's for me!

[*bang!* Jose comes back mangled]
That's what I had to 'tol you Jose. Slowpoke Rodrigues, he pack a gun.

I'm most definitely not a fan of Speedy, but this entry proves to be very amusing, thanks mostly to the antics of the two schmoes of the title, namely a catty duo in the comic tradition of Abbott and Costello.
This time, however, the "Looney Tunes" boys work in an amusing variation. The thin cat is the dumb stooge here, while the paunchy feline plays his more aggressive but almost equally dumb partner.
Nicely paced with some sharp gags, this one deserved its Academy Award nomination. And I loved the off-key song!
Other Speedy cartoons that are worth a look include "Tabasco Road" and "Cat-Tails for Two".
