Five Stereotypical Talking Chihuahuas

Fact #1: America loves movies with talking animals. We don’t entirely understand this fascination with anthropomorphic creatures, but Hollywood is more than happy to satiate this terrible obsession by releasing more than a handful of terrible movies a year featuring CGI-ed cats and dogs.

Fact #2: If the movie in question features talking dogs, you better believe that one of the characters will be a talking chihuahua with a terrible Mexican accent. The only things more certain than this fact are death and taxes. With that said, here are the five most amusing offenders:

Tito from Oliver and Company

Voiced by Cheech Marin, Tito is an archetypal talking chihuahua. He is spastic, conniving, and has anger management issues. Tito is a member of Dodger’s street gang. Like most Hispanics in films, Tito is hyper-sexual and is constantly looking to a nail pekingeses, poodles, or other pedigree pooches. Who can blame him? Peke’s are hot.

Ren from Ren and Stimpy

Ren is a straight up sociopath. It seems that in all talking chihuahua movies and tv shows, the dogs are rageaholics. Ren is constantly beating up on Stimpy, his mentally challenged feline friend. He is also greedy, sneaky, and selfish. He is often trying to con people out of money so he can get pectoral implants. Weird.

Gidget the Taco Bell Chihuahua

The “Yo quiero Taco Bell” commercials of the 90’s were iconic. The talking chihuahua with a love for tacos became a genuine cultural meme. T-shirts, hats, posters, and stuffed chihuahuas were everywhere. Midway trough the campaign, the chihuahua put on a beret and turned into a Che Guevara figure. We’re not sure what a communist guerrilla has to do with chalupas, but what do we know?

Several Chihuahuas in Marmaduke

Marmaduke is a terrible movie. This steaming turd is about a badly generated CGI great dane named Marmaduke. Among the many talking dogs in the film, there are several chihuahuas that travel around in purses. All of these tiny purse trolls talk like they just stepped off a bus in East LA. An honorable mention also goes to Carlos the cat, a stereotypical Mexican cat voiced by George Lopez.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 1 and 2

What can we say about Beverly Hills Chihuahua? This movie is so full of stereotypical chihuahua goodness, it is unbelievable. A prissy California chihuahua named Chloe gets lost in Mexico and falls in love with a wisecracking cholo dog named Papi, played by George Lopez. At one point, Chloe and Papi end up in a lost Aztec city full of chihuahuas. You expect this kind of thing from George Lopez, Cheech Marin, and Paul Rodriguez. However, the movie also stars people who should have known better, like Andy Garcia, Edward James Olmos, Luis Guzman, and Placido Domingo. I guess that fat check was worth it.
