Usually, I don't think about whether or not extreme velocity runs in Speedy Gonzales's family. If so, it must not affect everyone, as his cousin Slowpoke Rodriguez is the most unhurried mouse in Mexico. But that gives "Mexican Boarders" an interesting aspect. In this cartoon, Speedy lives in the same house as Sylvester. As the most accelerated rodent in the United Mexican States, Speedy naturally never has to worry about Sylvester catching him (especially since Sylvester apparently suffers from listlessness).

Anyway, one day there arrives Slowpoke, who has even less energy than Sylvester. But Slowpoke is desperately hungry, and only Speedy can get the food. I shouldn't have to tell you what Speedy does to Sylvester, but I will say that one trick involves Tabasco sauce! The lackadaisical Slowpoke is certainly an eye-opening counterbalance to the expeditious Speedy, and he eventually plays a bigger role than we assumed. He even sings "La cucaracha" and includes the line "marijuana que fumar"! So I like this cartoon.

And yes, Sylvester is kind of stupid. Unfortunately, dictators get stupid people to carry out their evil deeds (of course, I'm not comparing Speedy and relatives to despots).
