    I remember seeing that. Wasn't there a backstory to this? Or was this episode the beginning? Didn't Gonzalez end up on the Ed Sullivan show?

    No. After his appearance on Groucho Marx he was sign by John Wayne and since he never learn to read or write his wife would read his scrip.

    Perhaps a cartoon character named Speedy Gonzales based on him?

    I suppose it possible. They both came out the same year 1953.

    I think he ended up in several movies too. Or in a series.

    Mel Blanc was the voice of Speedy Gonzales.

    That link said "Gonzalez Gonzalez played extra characters behind Mel Blanc in a number of Speedy Gonzales cartoons...."

    So the character of Speedy Gonzales was not based on Ramiro Gonzalez-Gonzalez.

    Not specifically. Speedy was just a racist stereotype. Similar to the American Indian mascot type characters.
