Complete credited cast:
Speedy Gonzales / Sylvester / Mice (voice)


Sylvester is guarding the Guadalajara Food Processing plant; a group of mice see this and try to enter, with no luck. Speedy gets some cheese, but when he goes back, Sylvester starts chasing him. They end up on a conveyor belt, where Sylvester gets shaved by some chopping blades. Speedy spreads some grease on a platform, and Sylvester skids into a vat of Tabasco Sauce. He melts a block of ice to recover. On another conveyor belt, Sylvester gets a bottle cap on his head. He pries it off, but Speedy "yee-ha's" him into the ceiling where it gets stuck again, and Speedy hides his bottle opener. Sylvester wanders off, into a dehydrator, where he emerges much smaller than Speedy and runs away in fright. (Even with all this machinery, the soundtrack does not include "Powerhouse.")

Don't worry, nothing gets weathered.
1 January 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While sometimes, I've worried that the Termite Terrace crowd might have been running short of ideas in the '60s, they certainly had a good idea with "Chili Weather". I pretty much always like seeing Speedy Gonzales making mincemeat out of predators, especially since he does so for a good cause*. And here, as The Fastest Mouse In Me-hi-co escapes - and before too long tortures - Sylvester to steal cheese for his friends, it's all good. I understand that these cartoons may be stereotyping Mexicans as sombrero-clad wackos, but as long as we understand that, we can enjoy the cartoons for what they were intended to be. Andale!

*According to the viewer and the mice, this is a good cause. In most cases, we probably wouldn't condone stealing things. But these guys had a good reason in that they were hungry.
