Good old times: Tijuana Toads

First, i want to apologize for lack of updates, but my exams are now over and Im back :)

Now, Tijuana Toads with Toro and Poncho!



Tijuana Toads is a series of 17 theatrical cartoons produced by DePatie-Freleng and released through United Artists.


The series was about two toads, Toro and Pancho, who live in the Mexican city of Tijuana. Throughout the cartoon they try to eat their prey, but always get out-smarted. They would sometimes themselves be targeted by a bird, Crazylegs Crane, and would in turn always out-smart him.

The series introduced two characters who later got their own series. The Blue Racer first appeared in "Snake in the Gracias" before getting his own series in 1972. Crazylegs Crane also spun off to his own series for television in 1978 on ABC, (both characters were voiced by Larry D. Mann, except in "Flight to the Finish" where Bob Holt voiced Crazylegs Crane).

Toro was voiced by actor Don Diamond and Pancho voiced by Tom Holland. Crazylegs Crane was voiced by Larry D. Mann. Directors are Hawley Pratt, Art Davis, Grant Simmons, and Gerry Chiniquy.

In 1976, NBC redubbed Tijuana Toads and renamed it Texas Toads to make the series less offensive. The toads' new names were Fatso and Banjo.






Enjoy :)
