Perfect display of childhood in school. Quality t.v. for kids.
I'm not ashamed to admit that I grew up watching "Carrusel". At the time, if you didn't watch it, you were considered a "loser" in school (first grade I think). Since I've been an avid Horror fan since a kid, but "Carrusel" made me sure to remind that I had a pure soul.
This soapie was a breakthrough because it paved the road for future t.v. productions for children. Televisa has always supported children since "Mundo de Juguete" but in "Carrusel", it's all about a cast of talented kids.
But be aware that this soapie was also kind of clichèd mainly because of the kids personalities. We have the fat kid with a big kind heart, the rich blonde spoiled girl, the black poor guy who was in love with the blonde beauty but was humiliated by her, the redneck kid, the nerdy girl, the extremely poor but smart girl, etc.
Oh, yes, this show was entertaining as hell! We got situations that are common between young kids but to be honest, some issues also concerned their parents and even the teacher. Gabriela Rivero delivered a tender, great performance. Man! I wished I had a teacher such as beautiful and kind like her. She was the soul of the show. Armando Calvo (R.I.P.) also delivered a tender, moving performance as the school's gate keeper. I always wanted him to be my grandfather.
Overall, this is a great show for kids. It's tender, has adventures, and also deals with real life situations. Televisa used to produce quality t.v. and "Carrusel" it's a perfect example.
I was truly in love with Ludwika Paleta. Those were the days...
