Looney TV: Muchos Locos (1966)

Warner Bros. was running out of steam in the animation department, such that by the mid-60's, they were outsourcing work to other studios. Format Films, for example, created the open & close to The Road Runner Show in 1966. DePatie-Freleng, which was making inroads in theatrical cartoons with Pink Panther, and would make their TV debut with Super Six that same fall, contributed mightily to this Speedy Gonzales short, "Muchos Locos", which also incorporates footage from a pair of Chuck Jones Daffy Duck/Porky Pig entries, "Deduce, You Say" & "Robin Hood Daffy".

Some wonder if Speedy isn't politically correct anymore, to the point where his shorts are hardly seen on cable.

Rating: B.
