      El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera TV Review

      A Lot or a Little?

      What you will—and won’t—find in this TV show.

      • Positive Messages

        none

        A grandfather encourages a boy to become a villain, while his upstanding father pushes him toward a more respectable life path. The boy’s main influence is a friend who prompts him to lie, steal, and cheat, even when he acknowledges the right thing to do.

      • Violence & Scariness

        some

        Cartoon violence includes falls from great heights, crashes into walls, and characters beating up on others — very little of which results in lasting injury.

      • Parents Need to Know

        Parents need to know that a young female character often encourages her friend to ignore his conscience and lie, cheat, or steal. The two main adult characters offer inconsistent influence over an impressionable boy — the devoted, upstanding father wants his son to be just like him, but the villainous grandfather hopes his protégé will follow in his evil footsteps. Although after much soul-searching, Manny usually follows his instincts and makes amends for any wrongdoing, in this show, life lessons mostly take a backseat to mischievous fun. Make sure young tweens understand that in real life, iffy behavior has more definite repercussions.

      What’s the Story?

      EL TIGRE: THE ADVENTURES OF MANNY RIVERA follows the antics of a 13-year-old superhero-to-be who lives with his super-hero dad and his super-villain grandfather, both of whom vie for his allegiance. Dad Rodolfo (a.k.a. White Pantera) (Eric Bauza) now focuses on fatherhood but can’t resist battling evildoers. Also retired, Granpapi (Carlos Alazraqui) (a.k.a Puma Loco) is also easily tempted back into the nefarious crimes that made him famous. As for Manny, one twist of his belt buckle transforms him into his own alter ego, El Tigre, but he’s undecided whether to use his powers for good or evil. He often turns to mischievous friend, Frida (Grey DeLisle), for guidance. Ultimately, Manny must search his heart and decide where his loyalties truly lie.

      Is It Any Good?

      Our review:

      Parents say
      (2):

      Kids say
      (8):

      El Tigre is the brainchild of Mexican-born husband-and-wife team Jorge R. Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua, who have infused the tween-geared series with touches of Latino culture. Tweens will enjoy the zany characters and exaggerated stories, but parents might take issue with the young characters’ penchant for troublemaking, the absence of a strong role model for Manny, and the overall lack of repercussions for his questionable behavior. The most disappointing aspect of the series is Manny’s friendship with Frida, who delights in getting him into sticky situations and relentlessly encourages him to lie and cheat his way out of trouble.

      Talk to Your Kids About …

      • Families can talk about strong role models. Tweens: Who are some of your role models? What do you most admire about them? How do you try to be like them? Parents and kids can also discuss how to make good decisions. How do you handle making a difficult decision? Who do you turn to for help? What kinds of tough decisions have you made? What factors played into your choice? Finally, don’t forget to talk about peer pressure. How would you feel if your friends wanted you to do something you knew wasn’t right? Would it be difficult to say no to them? Could you do it?

      Description

      The series follows the adventures of a 13-year-old boy named Manny Rivera [3] in a fictional Mexican city called Miracle City ( Miracle City ). Manny’s father is the superhero White Panther, and his grandfather is the supervillain Puma Loko. Manny himself owns a magical belt, twisting the buckle of which he turns into El Tigre – a creature endowed with superpowers (including steel claws, a deafening tiger roar, etc.). It is impossible to unambiguously define El Tigre as a hero or a villain, because Manny himself did not decide what he wants to grow up to be: on the one hand, being good is commendable, but on the other hand, “evil is much more fun. ” So Manny is an ordinary thirteen-year-old boy who does not like studying, but loves to have fun and at the same time he has superpowers that he uses for both good deeds and pranks.

      Creation of

      Manny Rivera

      El Tigre was created by a married couple of artists Jorge R. Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua. Working on the project, the couple took as a basis the memories of childhood and youth spent in “delightful Mexico”, and specifically in Mexico City and Tijuana. The prototype of Manny Rivera was young George, and Manny’s girlfriend Frida Suarez was Sandra. Many episodes of the animated series are based on real events from the life of George and other project participants.

      Gutierrez’s father was an architect, and his grandfather was an army general. In his own words, as a child, his aunts and other relatives often said: “ You are the spitting image of father ”, or “ You are just like grandfather ”, or “ What will you grow up to be, an artist or a general? » [4] Childhood memories morphed into a dilemma between being a superhero or a supervillain.

      Wonder City was based on Mexico City, where George Gutierrez spent most of his childhood.

      Awards

      2007 – Annie Award for “Best Animated Television Product for Children” (awarded by El Tigre) and “Character Design for an Animated Television Product” (awarded by George R. Gutierrez for his work on the episode “A Fistful of Collars”). He was also nominated for awards in the nominations “Animation of the character of a television product” and “Music for an animated television product.”

      2008 – Emmy Award for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation” awarded to Sandra Equihua – for the character design of the episode “Enter the Crow”.

In the episode “Tigress” twice “borrowed” Manny’s magic belt and became the superhero Tigress.

      Despite Manny and Frieda’s overtly friendly relationship (for example, Manny’s suggestion “Maybe we can hug?” Frida replied: “I’d love to if you didn’t make me sick”), there are scenes in the series that indicate that their friendship may hide warmer feelings. So in the episode “Mustachioed Boy” Manny is driving in a car in the company of girls, Frida is sitting in the same car with a displeased look. Manny is very jealous of Frida in one of the episodes of the second season, and in the episode “No Boots, No Belt, No Brero” Frida, falling into Manny’s arms, kisses him (possibly without realizing her actions).
