“Yehudi Mercado is an animator, and it shows. While he has called Pantalones, TX : Don’t Chicken Out, “Smokey the Bandit meets Peanuts,” his characters’ thick-bordered profiles are more reminiscent of the Hanna Barbera school of limited animation, i.e. the cartoons that begin with Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, or Yogi Bear, and end with Adult Swim. The setting, Pantalones, is a pop-up book city in an over the top angular desert that recalls the backdrop of Warner’s Road Runner cartoons. And just as the characters in a seven minute reel go all out to earn your laughs, so too do the hero and the villain of the piece, Chico Bustamante and Sheriff Cornwallis, have an animated work ethic. Cornwallis, unlike Wile E Coyote, isn’t a dunce cap Da Vinci, but he’s a jack of all trades of a different stripe; he not only enforces law and order in Pantalones, but also teaches a one-room school for Chico’s class and runs a chicken stand–and still has time to read Evil Sheriff magazine. As soon as our hero Chico finishes one Rube Goldberg plan, he hatches another one, which keeps Sheriff Cornwallis busy.”
