Mucho Locos is a 1966 Merrie Melodies animated short featuring Speedy Gonzales and Daffy Duck. In the short, Speedy highlights some of his and Daffy's previous exploits. It's the only cartoon in the series where Daffy gets the upper hand at the end.

Plot[edit]

A little mouse is depressed because he has no TV when Speedy Gonzales tells him to use his imagination. Speedy proceeds to say that the smartest animal is the mouse, and the dumbest the duck. Footage from Chuck Jones directed cartoons Robin Hood Daffy and Deduce, You Say, as well as some Speedy cartoons, are used to evidence this.

Unfortunately for Speedy, Daffy has been watching the whole time, and emerges through the broken TV and hits Speedy with a mallet for the insults. Speedy decides to go home, stating that "this imagination TV gives me the terrible headaches!" The little mouse then ponders whether it is real or not.

Censorship[edit]

  • On CBS, the flashback scene from the 1959 Robert McKimson cartoon "China Jones" where the Chinese dragon lady breathes fire on Daffy and burns him was cut to remove the aftermath where Daffy is burnt and featherless [1]

Milestones[edit]

  • The cartoon marked the final theatrical pairing of Daffy Duck and Porky Pig during the original Golden Age of Animation era, and the only two during the time that Warner Bros. cartoons were being produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises.
