Bucky and Pepito is an animated TV series from 1959. It is best known among cartoon historians as being among the worst animated shows of all time for its poor animation and racist stereotyping, as Pepito (voiced by a white actor) was considered an offensive portrayal of Mexicans.[1] The series was generally syndicated to local television stations to be played alongside other shorts during blocks in early children’s programming.

The series was not well preserved, and only a handful of the original episodes are available for purchase or online. The cartoons available online include “The Coyote Hunter”, “The Vexin’ Texan”, and “Lone Pine Tree.” The latter two episodes are available on a DVD called “The Worst Cartoons Ever!”[2]

A couple sources provide episode guides[3] for the series, and most of the episodes are not available to stream online or purchase. It’s unknown whether the episodes have survived since their production or whether this list is complete.
