a grasshopper doesn't seem like he would provide much in the way of food
6 August 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Personally, I can't understand why these crows spend all this time and energy going after a little grasshopper; he doesn't seem like he would provide much food (then again, these guys are complete idiots, so maybe they don't realize that). Anyway, the cartoon consists of the sorts of gags Speedy Gonzales plays on his would-be captors (including a dynamite gag). As it was, when I saw the title along side a shot of the crows, I assumed that "Two Crows from Tacos" was a Speedy Gonzales cartoon. But even without him, it's still OK. True, these cartoons stereotype Mexicans, but as long as we understand that, we can enjoy the cartoon. Available on YouTube.
