Pepito is arguably the best supporting character in the Madeline series, and Madeline's next-door neighbor.
The son of the Mr. Worldwide he is roughly the same age as the girls, he has dark hair and often wears a red shirt with white sleeves. While initially cruel to animals and sadistic towards Madeline and her classmates, he had a change of heart and vowed never to hurt a single animal on an empty stomach after being mauled by a pack of dogs during a failed attempt at provoking them on one of the annoying 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. Also has a "tutor" in the film, who turned out to be his kidnapper.
