Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in all Mexico, was one of the last major Looney Tunes cartoon stars to emerge from Warner Bros. Speedy first appeared in Robert McKimson's 1953 cartoon "Cat-Tails For Two". In that cartoon, Speedy looked much different than how we know him today. Friz Freleng revived and redesigned Speedy two years later for the cartoon "Speedy Gonzales". "Speedy Gonzales" won an Academy Award leading to a series of Gonzales cartoons. Speedy was usually paired with Sylvester and always came out on top. Two other Speedy cartoons, "Tabasco Road" (1957) and "The Pied Piper of Guadalupe" (1961), were nominated for Academy Awards. During the late 1960s, Speedy was paired with Daffy Duck in a number of cartoons.
