One of Nicklodeon's most underrated shows
1 December 2014 | by alexramirez-174-77071See all my reviews

After hearing a fact that the creator of 'The Book Of Life' also produced this particular show, i decided to go on it's web-page on Nicktoons.com to see what lies in there for me. When i saw some episodes, never i thought that it would've blown me away.

To start off on my review, ill start with the most important element of any cartoon; The Story. It tells the life of a 13-year old boy named Manny Rivera, A young super-hero who is the son of a hero known as White Pantera, but unfortunately the son of a villain known as Puma Loco. Due to this, Manny Rivera's superhero alter-ego has to choose a side: Good or Evil. What makes the writing good is just how complex the Manny himself is (which I'll get into later) and how creative the writing can be with the premise of each episode. The only catch is that sometimes the story structure can get messed up and can be left with a few plot holes here and there, but that doesn't hold it back from being so well-written.

Now the Animation. They weren't kidding when they said this came from the creator of 'The Book Of Life'! This is possibly some of the most creative animation to come out of Nicklodeon! The backgrounds and setting are set in a Dia de Los Muertos theme and they look amazing and it can get really colorful at times. Same applies to the character design and animation. Not to mention that it can get pretty fast at times and it's not so sudden like in other Nick cartoons.

The Characters are just right down likable. El Tigre/Manny, like i said before, is such a complex character with him having a hard choice to be Good or Evil. This can make him one of the most Likable Nick protagonists of all time. Manny's Best Friend/ Possible Love Interest, Firda is one of the funniest female kid characters nickelodeon has written. Plus i like that they don't make her so focused on her comedic/tomboy side to the point she becomes annoying, they keep her funny yet likable at the same time. Even White Pandara and Puma Loco are funny and likable. Same with the main villains (Santana, Black Cuervo, El Oso)

Why don't people talk about this as often as Spongebob and TMNT? Pepole, go to the web-page of this show on Nicktoons' website and go see the episodes of them and have a good time in Maricle City!
