Maybe Pantalones is childish humor, but it appeals to my inner child. Yehudi Mercado makes fun of Texas (an easy target, to be sure), vegetarians (ditto), and a variety of other subjects, but this isn't the kind of social commentary that takes itself seriously. Mercado's supporting characters are almost as much fun as Chico. I would give Pantalones 4 1/2 stars if I could.
Chico Bustamante, a go-kart riding rebel kid in Pantalones, Texas, gets under the skin of sherrif/mayor/judge/school principal/chicken shack owner Cornwallis. On his quest to become a Texas legend, Chico relies on his friends and his faithful dog Baby T. Maybe he'll ride a giant chicken, or maybe he'll challenge the chicken to a race. And maybe he'll become a legend in the end.
This is probably unlike anything you've read before. In attitude, it reminded me a bit of Bart Simpson's antics, at the same time more absurd and friendlier than the Simpsons. (Texas is the Friendship State, after all.) Pantalones, TX is appropriate for all ages, in terms of language and content, but some the humor might go over the heads of younger readers. I liked it.
