there was a reason why the series ended not long after this
18 April 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Warner Bros closed its animation department in 1963, so Friz Freleng launched his own production company with David DePatie, and they licensed their new series to Warner Bros. This new series featured most of the same characters but was no match for the cartoons released between 1935 (Porky's debut) and 1963 (the closure). The final cartoon got released in 1969.

Anyway, "It's Nice to Have a Mouse Around the House" was the first of several Daffy Duck-Speedy Gonzales pairings. In this case, the energetic rodent is raising cain in Granny's house, and Sylvester can't catch him, so Granny hires the lisping mallard to deal with him. Sure enough, Speedy always gets the better of Daffy.

As to the issue of whether or not these cartoons were racist, that depends on how we're using the word. They stereotyped Mexico, but large numbers of Latinos liked that they depicted Mexicans positively (a sharp contrast to the John Wayne movies).

Basically, Speedy's cartoons in the late '50s were his best ones. I particularly liked "Here Today, Gone Tamale".
