Speedy Gonzales

Show Summary

Speedy Gonzales is the famous Warner Bros. cartoon Mexican mouse part of WB's long running Loony Tunes. The toon mouse was created by Robert Mckimson and Friz Freleng (until redesigned by Hawly Pratt) and first aired in the 1953 cartoon Cat-Tails for Two. He was originally voiced by Mel Blanc, who created Speedy's famous call "¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba (which is spanish for "Go on! Go on! Up!Up!). Speedy is always seen wearing a large yellow sombrero, a red bandana, and white shirt and pants. He gets is name from being the fastest mouse in all of mexico (though he runs faster than any human can too).

The 1955 the Speedy animated short won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject (cartoons).
