  • Vintage 1973 Slow Poke Rodriguez Glass "Slowest Mouse in All Mexico"..
  • Rare 38 Year Old Looney Tunes Glass!.
  • Imported from USA.
Slowpoke Rodríguez is a fictional animated cartoon mouse and the cousin of Speedy Gonzales from the popular Looney Tunes’ series of characters. Tom Holland and Frank Welker provided his voice in just two episodes of Speedy Gonzales. Slowpoke Rodriguez is “the slowest mouse in all Mexico” in contrast to his cousin Speedy Gonzales, who is known as the fastest. Despite his slow moving feet, Slowpoke manages to take on Sylvester the cat and other kitties with bad intentions in both of his cartoon appearances, explaining to his cousin Speedy that he may be “slow in the feet” but not in “la cabeza” (the head). Slowpoke Rodriguez speaks in a slow, monotone voice and, and moves even more slowly. He seems to be scared by nothing except for maybe being hungry. And he is always hungry! Droopy, red eyes, slurred speech and a song about “La Cucaracha” (a slang term for a marijuana joint) have all pointed to Slowpoke representing a pot smoking mouse - not unlike other cousins of Speedy Gonzales who were portrayed as “borrachos” (drunks). Slowpoke appeared in only two of the Speedy Gonzales cartoon episodes. The first, Slowpoke Rodriguez appearance in “Mexicali Shmoes” (1959) is a story of two lazy cats, Jose and Manuel, who decide to chase Slowpoke instead of Speedy because they think he will be easier to catch. In the end, they find out that Slowpoke packs heat! However, the gun-toting part of the episode was been edited out of later airings of the episode. Slowpoke’s second appearance is in, “Mexican Boarders” (1962), in which Speedy tries to keep Slowpoke out of the paws of Sylvester the Cat. To Sylvester and Speedy’s surprise, Slowpoke Rodriguez demonstrates powers of mind control (the other mice call it the “evil eye”) over Sylvester that turn Sylvester into his servant. In this episode, Slowpoke sings the famous “La Cucaracha” song which strengthens suspicions that Slowpoke Rodriguez might indeed be a stoner.
