    Oh, you didn’t know: The Frito Kid, a blond animated cowboy, served as the original mascot for Fritos until 1967 when he was succeeded by the Frito Bandito, a chip thief pursued by the “Frito Bureau of Investigation.” The offensive caricature was retired in 1971. Despite its regrettable nature, the Bandito had notable animation figures contributing to it, with Tex Avery, the iconic creator of Looney Tunes, handling the drawing, and Mel Blanc providing the voice, essentially using the same voice as Speedy Gonzales.
