Mexican Boarders is a 1962 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Friz Freleng and Hawley Pratt.


When Speedy Gonzales's cousin, Slowpoke Rodriguez, the slowest mouse in all of Meh-he-co, pays a visit to Speedy's hacienda, Sylvester intends to catch either one of them for his meal.


DVD - Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4, Disc 3


This cartoon was used in Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales, but was edited for time.


On Nickelodeon, the beginning where Sylvester is introduced as "The most pooped cat of all Mexico because he was chasing the fastest mouse of all Mexico" while Sylvester downs a bottle of pep pills was cut. Earlier Nickelodeon versions cut the entire part while later versions replaced Sylvester's pill-popping with a freeze-framed shot of a tired Sylvester on the ground.[1]
