* ''VideoGame/{{Guacamelee}}'' is an AffectionateParody of Mexican culture, and is loaded with imagery of ''lucha libre'', the Day of the Dead, {{Mayincatec}} ruins, and dusty colonial-era towns.

* The first episode (not counting the pilot) of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' takes place in a stereotypical Mexican town.



* The Kamp Krusty episode of ''TheSimpsons'' ended with Krusty taking the kids for a day of debauchery in Tijuana.

Ah, UsefulNotes/{{Mexico}}. Home of the bustling, ancient and modern Mexico City, the gritty and industrial Monterrey, Puebla and its multiple hundred years of Spanish colonial history, the city called Guadalajara that mixes all the previous ones and adds a technological corridor, the heavenly beaches of Cancún and Los Cabos, the magnificent mountains of central Chihuahua and Durango, the lush wilderness of Yucatán...

Wait, what? Sorry, uh, we thought Mexico was home to, you know, stuff like the [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans Dí­a de los Muertos]], [[NiceHat sombreros]], lazy locals, burros (donkeys), tequila, {{chupacabra}}s, [[MaskedLuchador luchadores]], piñatas, chili, [[FirebreathingDiner incredibly spicy food]], lots of beans, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and a bunch of rundown]], [[TheSavageSouth filthy adobe huts in the middle of the desert or desperately poor, grubby towns]] that American criminals will [[RunForTheBorder escape to]].
