The Frito Bandito

I remember as a kid hearing Mel Blanc voicing the animated Frito Bandito, a character who loved Frito Lay products so much that he would steal them.

The problem... the stereotypical character was offensive to Mexicans and persons of Mexican descent. Well, actually only 8% of those polled found the character offensive.

Thus, the end of a television icon.

For those of you who never heard of the Frito Bandito... take a peek at this retromercial below:
