16 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mexican Boarders is perhaps a little too short, a little leisurely in the pacing and a little too slight in the story department. However, it is one of the better Speedy cartoons, as it is pretty funny. And I have to say the animation is an improvement over other Speedy cartoons, it is much more thought-out in the backgrounds and colours, and the music is good too, there have been times I have found it too repetitive and annoying, but it was good and authentic here. The dialogue is funny and the sight gags are clever. Speedy is less abrasive here than he has been, which is a good thing, while Slowpoke Rodriguez is an amusing supporting character, but it is Sylvester who steals the show. As always, Mel Blanc's voice work is outstanding. Overall, entertaining and worthwhile, not really a classic but it is an improvement over other Speedy cartoons. 7/10 Bethany Cox
