Mucha Lucha!

Harmless but empty; your kids can do much better.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

The main character (while a fantasy creature and not human) is definitely Hispanic. Slapstick, put downs, nothing really objectionable -- all sort of age-appropriate

Violence & scariness

Ricochet -- the main character -- is a wrestler and the episodes center on fights.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this show centers around the fighting ability of Mucha Lucha and the gang's ability to have unique defenses. The main character is a cross between a Pokemon creature and a street Latino kid. It's fine for your kids to watch, but it's nothing but the gang's battles to save the world while having to clean their rooms.

What's the story?

Ricochet, Flea, and company are wrestling creatures who deal with the twin challenges of growing up and saving the world. Apparently, this seems to require a lot of fighting.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

There's a definite Hispanic influence in Ricochet's world, but the show misses the opportuntity to broaden and diversify beyond accents. Harmless but empty.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether it's OK for some kids' TV shows to have no goal but to entertain. Do you think all kids' shows need to have a bigger goal/purpose? Kids: Is watching a show like this as satisfying as watching one that has bigger/better messages? Why or why not?

Not so great

I think this show leaves much to be desired. I doubt that in the half hour my kids watch this program, that they are absorbing anything meaningful or educational or even entertaining.

So-so cartoon...

I used to like this show. But now, it's okay. I don't care for it that much. It's pretty dull and the animation could be better, but still okay.

Cute show!

I like this show, not only for its animation, but also for its multi-cultural theme. You don't see many hispanic cartoons. It's a cute show!
