Pepito is a supporting character in the Madeline series, and the girls' next-door neighbor.
The son of the Spanish Ambassador, he is roughly the same age as the girls, has dark hair and often wears a red shirt with white sleeves. While initially cruel to animals and indifferent towards Madeline and her classmates, he had a change of heart and vowed never to hurt a single animal after being mauled by a pack of dogs during a failed attempt at provoking them on a cat. Eventually he developed an amicable relationship with the girls.
In the live-action film, Pepito appears to be somewhat older than the girls and in place of a "hat" he drives a Vespa. Unlike in the books and the TV series, where he reforms after one of his mischievous pranks goes wrong, he appears to reform sometime during/after the scene where the girls pull various pranks. He also has a "tutor" in the film, who turned out to be his kidnapper.
