Frito Bandito Black Shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and along sleeve t-shirt

In the age of Dora the Explorer Frito Bandito Black Shirt, it's hard to imagine a time when a Latino cartoon character wasn't portrayed as caring, adventurous and curious - but sinister. However, when Frito-Lay launched the Frito Bandito in 1967, that's exactly what happened. Bandito, the cartoon mascot for Frito-Lay fries, has a golden tooth, a pistol, and a minion to steal chips. To boot, Bandito, wearing a giant sombrero and spiked boots, speaks broken English with a thick Mexican accent. A group called the Mexican-American Anti-Defamation Commission protested against this stereotypical image, prompting Frito-Lay to change Bandito's appearance so he wouldn't appear sly. David Segal, who wrote about the character for in 2007, explains: "He's come off as friendly and likeable, but still wants to steal your chips."
