He hits crossing the line, before you can even finish saying go! It is trail blazer Speedy Gonzales, designed for Warner Brothers by the ever popular German Maker - Steiff.

Speedy first debut in 1953, in a prototype (Cat-Tails for Two), with an official debut in 1955, entitled Speedy Gonzales. Known for being the fastest mouse in all of Mexico (and probably the world), he is also known for his quick talking in an exaggerated Mexican accent. Not all of his abilities were a family trait, as cousin Slowpoke Gonzales could attend. Now he can be seen alongside popular Warner Bros favourites, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig plus others as a room mate to Bugs and Daffy, plus an proud owner of a pizzeria, serving up pizza in his own unique way

Speedy Gonzales is a wee 20cm tall (perfect for a mouse), with a turnable head. He has been sewn from a luxurious chestnut mohair, with wool felt accents for his hair tuft, paws and tail. He wears a large yellow sombrero, with a white, long sleeved shirt and matching trousers, plus a red neckerchief, which was traditional attire in rural Mexican villages back in the 50s. To finish, his large oval eyes have been embroidered into place, with characterful eyebrows and a kissable nose, whilst acrylic whiskers complete his look... Andale! Andale! Arriba! Arriba! Epa! Epa! ... roughly translated as hurry up/ go on, go on, up, up.

This much loved speedster is a Worldwide, Limited Edition of just 2,000 pieces and will come to you boxed, with his numbered certificate of authenticity.
