Just because a lot of hispanics LIKE speedy does NOT mean they regard him as a role model... Cause really there isn't enough there in his character to BE a good role model. A role model is someone you look up to and try to fashion your own life after; all he has ever been is a fast mouse that beats up a bad guy in a comical fashion. He was meant to entertain and nothing more. Same can be said of all the looney tune's characters; their cartoons were not meant to be life lessons to change others; they were meant to make people laugh. That ability to make people laugh alone is what kept these characters alive for decades... Its nice when a cartoon character can be a good role model for kids, but not every character has to be like that. That's why its so wrong to compare Looney Tunes, to MLP. MLP was a show designed to tell stories and lessons; it doesn't just want to entertain, but it also wants to tell you something. Looney tunes has never done this; their goal has only been to entertain. They want to make you laugh not tell you how you should live your life. MLP has not changed anything in this regard... even before MLP there have been great cartoons with great characters who could make good role models for kids, but the existance of such characters does NOT undermine the existence of those characters that just want to entertain. In the 90's we had Batman TAS and Animaniacs; Batman was a hero kids could look up too, while Animaniacs were just there to make kids laugh. BOTH shows were great and are fondly remembered. Heck when they created Lola for space jam, they tried to make her into a strong character and she ended up being the most bland and humorless. She just didn't fit in with all the other characters or the setting which was meant to just make people laugh. None of the looney tunes were meant to be role models, they were meant to be entertainers, and Lola is no different. The Looney tunes have lived for 80 years just making kids laugh... and that's all they need to ever do. Leave the life lessons for the super heroes, the avatars and the ponies.
