Tabasco Road is a 1957 Speedy Gonzales cartoon, part of the Looney Tunes series.[2]

It was an Academy Award nominee for best short subject but it lost out to Birds Anonymous (a Merrie Melodies cartoon starring Tweety Bird and Sylvester, the latter of whom is also often paired with Speedy Gonzales). Both shorts were reissued as Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies cartoons in 1961.


Speedy Gonzales must save his friends, Pablo and Fernando, from a large (and hungry!) alley cat. The trouble is, they are inebriated, and would much rather pick a fight with the cat (and for that matter, any other cat they can find!). Can Speedy save them?
