ANIMATION: El Tigre, The Adventures of Manny Rivera

El Tigre, The Adventures of Manny Rivera

22 min., 26 TV episodes, 2007

Nickelodeons first ever flash animation series produced for Nickelodeon and Nicktoons Network. Set in the fictional crime-ridden Mexican city of Miracle City, El Tigre follows the adventures of Manny Rivera, a regular 13-year-old boy with superpowers trying to choose between being good or evil. His father, a superhero known as White Pantera, wants Manny to grow up to be good and fight evil, but Mannys Grandpapi, a supervillain known as Puma Loco, thinks Manny should go to the dark side.

Check-out a collection of El Tigre character design drawings in the dedicated El Tigre Gallery page. Or be sure to read my El Tigre blog for a behind-the-scenes peek. The video you see here is the original pilot called "A Fistful of Nickels" and the credits in the credits column refer to this episode only. Here are the links to my favorite episode called "The Grave Escape" part 1 and part 2. The entire series is available for purchase on iTunes and can be viewed on the Nickelodeon website.
