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


Cinco de Mayo. The mice are dancing. Sylvester puts on a pair of mouse ears and tries to join in, but Speedy sees through the disguise. He lures Sylvester away from the other mice, and ducks inside a dog pound. Sylvester follows, then quickly escapes, but Speedy "yee-hah"s him back inside. He escapes again and tries to bash Speedy with a piece of pipe. He quickly tires. Speedy comes back, and Sylvester nets him; Speedy pulls him up stairs, and into a telephone pole. Speedy is canoeing with his sweety. Sylvester tries to catch up in a raft, but Speedy throws a dart. Speedy is serenading his sweety in a high window; Sylvster sends himself up with a seesaw and grabs Speedy, but the weight hits Sylvester in the head. Sylvester builds a rocket go-kart; Speedy stops, and Sylvester keeps going, off a cliff and into a lake; after some time underwater, the car propels Sylvester way off. The fiesta resumes, and Sylvester shows up in a wheelchair. Speedy walks off; "this is the only way to run." Written by Jon Reeves <>

Cielito not so lindo
6 October 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It's always fun to see Speedy outwit Sylvester, but by 1965 the Looney Tunes had long since passed their prime. In this case, the slobbering cat tries to ruin Cinco de Mayo but the quick mouse foils his plans. I noticed that in one scene Speedy sings "Cielito lindo", a traditional Mexican song whose title means "lovely sweet one" (appropriate for the scene in which Speedy sings it). Yes, Speedy Gonzales and Pepe Le Pew are the only Looney Tunes who consistently try to be romantic with women; Bugs, Daffy and the rest are rarely in relationships with anyone. Anyway, it's an OK cartoon but no match for Speedy's earlier work.

The idea of an American cat trying to keep Mexican mice away from cheese always comes across as an inadvertent representation of immigration issues.
