ABOUT THE IMAGE: “Queso al Trinfador” or “Cheese to the Victor” demonstrates that for Speedy Gonzales, the quicker they are, the greater the reward. Always up for a challenge in this 1955 Friz Freleng directed cartoon, Speedy demonstrates why he is worthy of cheese wedges and the Academy Award that this piece won. Here, in his second cartoon entitled “Speedy Gonzales” the mouse is showcased as admirable, amiable and of course, very accelerated. His foe Sylvester, who while guarding a cheese factory, is continually duped by the coupling of cheese thievery and terminal velocity. In short, with Speedy’s alluring smile and contented personality (which is an interesting contrast to other Freleng characters, namely Yosemite Sam, this little Yucatan mouse remains one of the more well-loved and respected animated figures today.
