Surprisingly Rather Enjoyable
24 July 2007 | by (San Francisco, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

I know many out there would just instantly think that 'El Tigre' should have stayed in the little Nick film festival it was first shown off at, but I somewhat beg to differ..

Out of the couple new Nick shows shown off in the past year, this has to be one of the more enjoyable ones I've seen, and out of all the Hispanic-based cartoons (others being dora, that other dora spin off, and -shudder- mucha lucha), I'd totally take this over them, especially Mucha Lucha, I can't stand that show..

If you expect something educational or something of moral value, you're out of luck.. The adventures of Manny Rivera is basically very random adventures with very random humor, just in what looks to be set in a Mexican city..

overall, Quick-witted, random humor, with a hint of action sequences. Kinda strange, you'd imagine with an cartoon intro showing off the 'El Tigre' super hero character a majority of the time, and the family's back story, you'd imagine it all action or something all-to-most of the time, like, oh, Danny Phantom action.. (well, all this based off two episodes, "Zebra Donkey" and "Moustache")

But I'm quite a sucker for very random humor, and the show can quite deliver in that..

Something else I have to sort of praise about it is that it's a rather slick looking cartoon. From backgrounds, character design, all in a Flash-animated cartoon.. Sort of like 'Fosters Home', but based in a Mexican style city, and a bit more action sequences..

All in all, I'd rather watch more of this rather than any other new show that's on Nick's On Demand menu right now.. oh, And easier to get into than 'Mucha Lucha' in my book..
