* The animated movie ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheMonsterOfMexico,'' which not only gets the origin of the creature ''completely'' wrong (treating it as being part of '''Aztec''' mythology!) but redesigned it to look more bigfoot-like. (The writers might have gotten it confused with the Nahual, a supposed Mexican were-jaguar.)
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' had an episode that claimed Dexter had created it to scare off Dee Dee, but it had escaped to Mexico and started attacking goats ("I never said it was a completely successful experiment").

The myth became surprisingly popular across Central and South America over the years, and even in the Southern United States, with people claiming to have actually seen the creature. Interestingly, it changed its appearance on its travels: in Latin countries, it's reported as being a bizarre red-eyed alien being with spines along its back, like the page image. In the US, they tend to take on the appearance of hairless dogs. It also has been featured on several TV shows and movies, effectively being treated as the Latin American equivalent of [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfoot]]. Pop culture spread the chupacabra even further, with recent sightings as far as Russia.
