Speedy Gonzales was a cartoon mouse first appearing in the 1950’s. An animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons.
He was known as ‘the fastest mouse in all of Mexico’.
In sticking with the 50’s diner theme of the original Jukes, a playful Mexican character from the 50’s was selected to represent this iconic nachos pizza.
Later (in the 60’s) we was the subject of a Pat Boone song.
He is known for his catchphrase “arriba, arriba … andale, andale”, meaning “up, up … go on, go on!”
