Xuxa was a Latin children's show host who had a successful show in Brazil, so they decided to try to make an American version. The show would start out with kids chanting her name and holding flags from around the world. There would be an explosion and a globe will open from which she would emerge. She would then go into her signature song (all of the songs she sang sounded like they were just translated from their original form, rather than making up new ones). There would also be games that kids would play for prizes. Xuxa also made it educational with her Ask Xuxa segment. Special guests would pop up as well. There were many problems that plagued this show: Xuxa looked annoyed by some of the kids, her English wasn't too hot, and she had posed nude in the past (That was the ultimate double whammy that ended her career in the States). The show only lasted one season, and reruns were shown on the Family Channel. They even marketed Xuxa stuff to kids like dolls, shoes and games. She never caught on (rumor has it MGM wants her to try again). I thought she was okay and the show had some kind of cheese quality. Where else could you find a sexy woman wearing hotpants, men dressed up as scary looking pandas, and demonic toy solders LOL?
