The Timid Toreador (1940)

Porky Pig is a street vendor in Old Mexico, selling really hot tamales. In the village bullfight stadium, "Slapsy Maxie Rosenbull" is making short work of the local matadors. Porky absent-mindedly wanders into the bullfight ring, and is clearly out of his element until the bull makes the mistake of fearlessly eating Porky's entire stock of tamales to prove how macho he is. The bull explodes, making Porky the triumphant toreador.
