Time For A Speedy Gonzales Cartoon, Amigos!

From 1964, we present Speedy Gonzales starring in "Pancho's Hideaway," part of Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes series.  This was the first of the 37 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies  cartoons produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises.  In this one, Speedy seeks to outfox the Mexican bank robber Pancho Vanilla, who looks and sounds like a Mexicanized version of Yosemite Sam.

With co-direction by layout man Hawley Pratt, story by John Dunn, animation by Bob Matz, Norman McCabe and Don Williams, backgrounds by Tom O'Loughlin, film editing by Lee Gunther, voice characterizations by Mel Blanc and Ralph James, and music by Bill Lava, this cartoon was produced by David H. DePatie and Friz Freleng.

Friz directed this cartoon, too.
