BUCKY AND PEPITO
Bucky and Pepito, "such a funny, funny pair" (as noted in the theme song), was produced by Sam Singer in 1959 for Samsing Creations/Trans-Artists Productions.
The voices were done by Dallas McKinnon. This cheaply done series (I've heard that it took only one week to complete an installment) was about Bucky, a young red-headed boy wearing a cowboy hat, and his buddy Pepito, a Mexican stereotype who is described in the cartoon as being "oh so lazy, and so very, very slow". The cartoon took place in the American Southwest, and while the animation was crudely done the background landscapes were lavish in comparison. Even though it is crude, the animation appears to be as good, if not better, than many of it's contemporary counterparts.
Sam Singer, the producer of Bucky and Pepito, The Adventures of Pow Wow, Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse, as well as the first Sinbad Jr. cartoons, passed away on January 25, 2001, at the age of 88.
