Mucho Locos is a 1966 Merrie Melodies animated short featuring Speedy Gonzales and Daffy Duck. In the short, Speedy highlights some of his and Daffy's previous exploits. It was the only cartoon in the series where Daffy gets the upper hand at the end. It was also the final appearance of Porky Pig in the Golden Age of Animation. Porky appears in the Robin Hood Daffy segment. It is the only cartoon to have Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzales paired together, although unseen together.

Plot

A little mouse named Jose is depressed because he has no TV when Speedy Gonzales tells him to use his imagination. Speedy proceeds to say that the smartest animal is the mouse, and the dumbest the duck. Redrawn scenes from Chuck Jones-directed cartoons Robin Hood Daffy and Deduce, You Say, as well as Bob McKimson's "China Jones" and a couple of Speedy cartoons, are used to evidence this.

Unfortunately for Speedy, Daffy has been watching the whole time, and emerges through the broken TV and hits Speedy with a mallet for the insults. Daffy calls Speedy a stupid mouse and he called himself a smart duck. Speedy decides to go home, stating that "this imagination TV gives me the terrible headaches!" Jose then ponders whether it is real or not. "It looks so real. Could it be my imagination?"
