Let’s take a closer look at this animator and entertainer.
Early life and family
David Axel Cazares Casanova was born in Mexico on 23 October 1990, most commonly known as Pelo. Nothing is known about his childhood or how he grew up.
Most YouTube stars like to keep people guessing about their lives, and he does the same. Pelo’s family is not known to the public at all – t isn’t even known if he has siblings or if his parents are still alive.
As with his private life, there isn’t much known about Pelo’s education. He speaks Spanish as he grew up in Mexico, and can also speak English. More than that, people can only guess about Pelo’s studies.
It can be assumed that he studied animation at some point as that is the foundation of his YouTube videos, however, it’s possible that he is self-taught.
He registered his YouTube channel – Sr Pelo, which means Mr Hair – in 2008, but it appears that it took him a while to start sharing content. The first video uploaded onto his channel was in 2012 and entitled ‘Troll Dance’, which gained more than a million views. After that, he uploaded many parody animated videos – ‘Mokey’s Show’ seems to have the most fans.
Pelo is known for being a very vocal and loud person, known for banging on his desk whenever he is excited. Some of his fans joke that he should stop abusing his tables in this manner. He also has an online handle – 123pendejos.
He enjoys making videos in the ‘chibi’ art style, which originates from Japanese anime. He does all the voices for his shows, except for one – Chara in ‘Underpants’ Genocide Ending’. Among his other animations that have gained popularity are parodies of games such as ‘Super Mario’ and ‘Team Fortress 2’.
Another popular series of Pelo’s is the ‘Stocktales’, which are stories told completely through the medium of stock images and video game music. In 2012, Pelo shared a video titled ‘Wellcom to Disnehy’ and this was the first of his series Mokey’s Show. This, as could be guessed, is a parody of Disney and Mickey Mouse. Other Disney character parodies also feature in the series.
Mokey the Mouse has since become an adored figure in Internet pop culture.
In addition to his English content, Pelo also has a YouTube channel and Facebook page with content aimed at a Latin American audience. Pelo is known as one of the most successful YouTube stars and ranked on the ‘list of famous people born on October 23, 1990’. He has many videos uploaded and most of them garner at least a million views each – currently he has more than three million subscribers. He is also known for posting works of art on Tumblr, his DeviantArt account as well as Facebook.
Hobbies, favourite things and interesting facts

Pelo’s star sign is Scorpio – people of this sign is said to be intense and poetic; this could be the motivation behind his videos. He is also known for being associated with Harold Andrew Partridge, who is an English Indie (independent) web animator and voice actor.
Of Pelo’s relationships, both platonic as well as romantic, basically nothing is known. If Pelo has a girlfriend, he’s not sharing that kind of information with the public. It is believed that he does not have any children.
