A controversial cartoon personality that caused a ruckus among afro Americans in the US after Mexico chose to commemorate him on postal stamps (see <a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8410111/)">www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8410111/)</a>. I was surprised to find this life-sized figure hidden/abandoned in some corner at the Cartoon Museum in downtown Mexico City. He is exhibited proudly at another room of the museum. This scene got my attention even more and I was allowed to move some of the rubbish and make a few photographs.
I am not a fan of sourcing from Wikipedia, but for a bit more on this character I suggest some research starting here <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mem%c3%adn_Pingu%c3%adn">en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mem%C3%ADn_Pingu%C3%ADn</a>.
