If only we could all rescue imprisoned animals like Speedy does!
8 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Knowing what sorts of nasty things happen to animals getting tested on, it may be a little harder for some people to laugh at "West of the Pesos". But I still laugh at what Speedy Gonzales does to Sylvester in rescuing his brethren from a laboratory. If you've seen any of Speedy's other cartoons, you'll know what sorts of gags to expect. But I didn't predict what happens during the long distance call. Or what Speedy would do after the female mouse kisses him! Then again, I should have foreseen it, given that Speedy loves everybody's sister. Like James Bond, he's the handsome cool dude admired by all the women (I wouldn't be surprised if, off camera, he beds every one of them!).

Anyway, a pretty funny cartoon.
