Cortes, Pepe. Pepe Cortes was created by the Cuban creators Aramís del Real and Vicente Morin and appeared in the radio show Pepe Cortes (1939-1940).

Modeled on the historical Diego Corrientes, Pepe Cortes is a romantic peasant in Cuba who robs from the rich and gives to the poor. Cortes acts as the protector of the dispossessed and oppressor of the rich. He is a singing cowboy, always on the back of his horse Lightning, always carrying his guns, and always smarter than those who pursue him.
