Skip to comments.George Lopez to voice Speedy Gonzales in film (Not the "50's racist Speedy Gonzales")

The comedian is attached to provide the voice of the fastest mouse in all Mexico for a politically correct live-action/CG hybrid feature set up at New Line Cinema."We wanted to make sure that it was not the Speedy of the 1950s -- the racist Speedy," said the comedian's wife Ann Lopez, who will serve alongside him as a producer. "Speedy's going to be a misunderstood boy who comes from a family that works in a very meticulous setting, and he's a little too fast for what they do. He makes a mess of that. So he has to go out in the world to find what he's good at."
That path becomes clearer once Speedy befriends a gun-shy race-car driver.

Arriba Arriba......Love Speedy cartoons as a kid...
Can the Frito Bandito be far behind?
Speedy is all about him stealing cheese while Sylvester tries and stop him.
Story line sounds like a loser.
We wanted to make sure that it was not the Speedy of the 1950s — the racist Speedy,”.....
L.O.L.!.....isn’t P.C. grand?
LOL. Let me know how that works out for ya.
I didn’t know that Speedy was a racist, did you?
Too bad, another Holly Wood butchering of a classical cartoon. Same as they have done to Loonytoons making them PC’d. BORING and no humor.
Everyone knows his seester.
What was wrong with the original Speedy? I thought he was great.
It will be OK:
Just as long as all married white men are stupid and lazy.
And the Jewish men are greedy shopkeepers with mother issues.
And Roman Catholic priests like little boys.
And the Protestant Christian ministers are gay and/or women haters and/or corrupt money grubbers.
“La Raza” Speedy will be a member of MEChA, who is working to return the stolen Southwest (”Aztlan”) to the new bronze race.
Speedy will be a dilligent worker exploited by the grape farmers of California and chased by La Migra.
Backwards. “He knows my sister”
“Speedy Gonzales knows EVERYBODY’S sister.”
Even Mel Blanc wrote that it came from a dirty joke.
All property is theft. Those Fritos are being liberated. That’s nacho cheese!
