Boone June: Speedy Gonzales

The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were false then and are still false today. While the following does not represent the WB view of society, these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as to claim these prejudices never existed.

Speedy Gonzales

“Speedy Gonzales” is a 1961 David Dante about Speedy Gonzales, “the fastest mouse in all Mexico”. The song was popularized in the U.S. as a 1962 single by Pat Boone.

The Boone version peaked at the #6 Billboard Hot 100 position in 1962 during a total chart run of 13 weeks, doing better in many national charts in Europe, where it sold a million copies.
