Yosemite Sam's possible Mexican relative
8 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

With Warner Bros. having closed it's animation department, Friz Freleng and David DePatie formed their own animation studio and sold their work to Warner Bros. "Pancho's Hideaway" was one of the first cartoons to come from this new partnership. The cartoon basically has a Mexican version of Yosemite Sam terrorizing a town, and so Speedy Gonzales goes to deal with him.

I read about how the Freleng-DePatie animation studio had to have lower budgets, and so the characters in their cartoons had limited movement. While the characters' movements don't really sway my opinion of the cartoon, Bill Lava's music could never compare with Carl Stalling's music. And anyway, they'd pretty much run out of clever ideas by this point. They probably shouldn't have continued making cartoons after WB closed the animation studio (by which point the cartoons had pretty much passed their prime). Worth seeing otherwise.
