This show is great! Kudos to the writing and direction of this show as it's genuinely funny while still being child friendly. Fun to watch at any age!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

El Tigre is the brainchild of Mexican-born husband-and-wife team Jorge R. Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua, who have infused the tween-geared series with touches of Latino culture. Tweens will enjoy the zany characters and exaggerated stories, but parents might take issue with the young characters' penchant for troublemaking, the absence of a strong role model for Manny, and the overall lack of repercussions for his questionable behavior. The most disappointing aspect of the series is Manny's friendship with Frida, who delights in getting him into sticky situations and relentlessly encourages him to lie and cheat his way out of trouble.
