Trivia

This is the last Looney Tune. The studio closed before the cartoon came out. The DePatie-Freleng Entreprises took over the studio shortly after it closed and made some more cartoons featuring some Looney Tunes characters including Speedy Gonzales, Daffy Duck and Road Runner, but by most, this is considered the end.

a last gasp of air
7 January 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In the last Warner Bros. cartoon made before the studio closed its animation unit, a man tells his friend the story of Senorella, a Mexican version of Cinderella. Obviously, fairy tales are some of the easiest stories to work with, and the Warner Bros. animation unit had been doing it from very early on. I should note, however, that the animation looks kind of metallic here and the narration starts sounding like an echo.

Otherwise, "Senorella and the Glass Huarache" is worth at least checking out. As for possible stereotyping of Mexicans, it's nothing that we haven't seen in a Speedy Gonzales cartoon. Now available on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 5. And if you ask me, considering that around the time that this came out was also about that time that the studio retired Bugs Bunny, they shouldn't have attempted anything after that (except for the compilation films).

Back when Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising made the first Bosko cartoon for Leon Schlesinger Productions in 1930 (which released its cartoons through WB), they probably had no idea that their studio would branch out into things like this.
