I always hated Speedy Gonzales as a kid. What did we need with a fast mouse when we already had the Road Runner? Speedy Gonzales was just the Road Runner plus a lot of Latino stereotypes.
Hey! That makes George Lopez perfect to voice the speedy mouse in the big-screen live-action/animated hybrid (I blame you, Alvin and the Chipmunks). Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen (Garfield) will pen the script, because they’re apparently familiar with very bad big-screen bastardizations of cartoon characters.
But don’t worry, this is not the racist Speedy. It apparently has George Lopez’s “Latino seal of approval.” So, not racist then? Just terribly unfunny.
I’d burn down something, but what’s the fucking point?
Andale! Arriba! Seppuku!
