Lalo Alcaraz Creates Amazing “Muerto Mouse” Cartoon in Response to Disney “Dia de los Muertos” Fiasco

Longtime readers know I”m a huge fan of legendary cartoonista Lalo Alcaraz because only he and he alone knows how to illustrate my pathetic love life. But what's also amazing about Lalo is like a fine queso, he only gets better as the years go on. Nearly 20 years ago, he busted onto the national spotlight with “Migra Mouse,” his depiction of Mickey Mouse as a Border Patrol agent done in response to news that Disney had donated money to California governor Pete Wilson's reelection campaign.

Nowadays, Alcaraz is even faster. Yesterday, as digital Aztl├ín erupted in anger with news that Disney was trying to trademark “Dia de los Muertos” to sell a bunch of crap, Alcaraz went to the drawing board and created “Muerte Mouse,” Mickey now a Godzilla-like skeleton destroying civilization. HILARIOUS!


Here's a bigger version for your viewing pleasures–pass it on! Or, better yet, wait until Alcaraz makes prints and sells them at your nearest Chicano-themed store!
