Mucha Lucha was the first television program to employ Flash animation--a lively and visually pleasing process well-known on the Internet. This DVD collection of episodes from the WB cartoon series is primarily targeted toward Latino boys but will appeal to any animation fanatic with its bold lines, skewed geometry, and frantic energy. Three protagonists, young Rikochet, Buena Girl, and the Flea, train at the International School of Lucha, where kids wear facial disguises, adhere to the code of Masked Mexican Wrestlers, catch a lot of flak from the principal, and wrestle the bad students as a form of punishment. Back home, our heroes apply the rules of "Lucha Libre" to liberating their own neighborhood from assorted villains. Violent and maddening after a bit, Heart of Lucha is helped mightily by clipped wit reminiscent of The Powerpuff Girls. --Tom Keogh

This show is very over the top and cartoony. There's nothing real about it at all. (A character tries to gain 600 pounds overnight... and exceeds that.) But if you find the idea of a whole town of masked wrestlers pretty funny... wrestlers who have superpowers like turning into a bulldozer ... wrestlers who uphold the the pillars of Honor! Family! Tradition! (and Donuts!) then you might enjoy this cartoon.
And don't miss the Chicos de Barrio music video at the end. The Mucha Lucha theme will run through your head all day!
This is one cartoon that always makes me laugh. This dvd will give you a taste of some of the cartoons from season 1.
Also, you get to go behind the scenes to see how the show is made. In case you didn't know, this entire show is made with Macromedia flash.
