  • show Description
  • ¡Mucha Lucha! is an over-the-top comedy-adventure about honor, family, tradition... and donuts. The series explores the Latino cultural phenomenon known as "Lucha Libre." In a world where no one removes their colorful mask ever and success depends on having a "signature move," three mascaritas - Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea - study and live the "Code of Masked Wrestling" and go to school at the Formost World-Renowned International School of Lucha. This bold comedy combines irreverent humor and visually dynamic fantasy-action in two fast-paced 11-minute episodes and is the first-ever all-flash animated series on broadcast television. Character Bios: Rikochet - The main Luchador of the show, Rikochet wants to be the school's greatest Luchador ever! He's master of the "Pulverzing Pinball" attack, as well as the "Spinning Top" and other attacks. Buena Girl - Buena Girl's knowledge of the Code of Masked Wrestling is surpassed by none, giving her an edge in matches. Her special attack is "The Buena Bulldozer of Truth", and she stands for all things Buena. The Flea - The Flea, Buena Girl, and Rikochet are like the three amigos, literally! But they call themselves the Three Mascaritas! The Flea is kind of the nasty one, the only things that can beat him are showers, killer masked toilets, and good hygiene! The Flea also refers to himself in the third-person perspective. Snow Pea - Snow Pea is the gentle, baby like, mascarita of the school. He doesn't appear to like violence, and he pretty much loses every fight he gets himself into. His signature move is called: "The Cuddly Hug of Friendship"! His signature move is quite strangely, only a hug. He is very small and he wears a green pea pod costume, and the only thing that Snow Pea knows how to say is his own name! Cindy Slam - She is a violent little mascarita who hates just about everything and can get very angry, very easily. Her attitude is just about as scary as her signature move: "The Cindy Slammer"! When she uses her signature move her hands turn into giant brick walls that can crush just about anything. It is highly recommended that you do not anger her. If you leave her alone, then you might just be spared the pain of her fury. Masked Dog - Masked Dog is just about the coolest dog you'll ever meet. Everyone knows him, and everyone loves him. His signature move is called: "Knocking Paws". It is basicly just a super cool handshake. Masked Dog is always there at his master's side when Rickochet needs him the most. Kids' WB!
