  • This was the only episode with a flashback. But Black Cuervo is so cute!

    Black Cuervo is my fave super villian! And here's the words to the Balled of Frida:

    Now I shall sing of myself, I am Frida, the best friend of nobel El Tigre... 1! 2! 3! 4!

    Sometimes we get in trouble!

    Sometimes we can not stop!

    But that can't be a problem cause' my papi is a cop!

    There's music in my bones!

    There's music in my narros!

    I'm rockin' with my band!

    The Atomic Somberos!

    And my coch's emigo is El Tigre!

    Oh, yah!

    And here's the words to Remember the good times Raul:

    Remember the good times, Raul!

    Dog races & shooting pooo-ool!

    Growing up exciterment! Like paying our taxes!

    Tryin' out differant mustache waxes!

    His Powers are amazing! He's got a super claw!

    He's either good or evil!

    We'll have to wait & see!

    His best friend's name is Frida also known as me!

    And his name is El Tigre!


    And the last song I'm gonna write in this review is A cat pooped on my lawn!

    She's trying to get Manny a.k.a. El Tigre, to have a great time with her! Oh, yah this is swell!

    And her enemy's El Tigre!

  • One of my favorites already

    The fact Manny and Frida find lost pets, steal them back when all the lost pets are found and then return them again is just hilarious, not to mention Manny and Frida in the beginning of "Fistful of Collars" is just priceless. The humor in the show is great. "Enter the Cuervo" is ok for what it is. I love the fact Frida has a rival it makes the episode all the more pleasurable. The "Kick Me" sign when Frida walks into Karate is just hilarious, not to mention adorable little kid Frida is definitely one of my favorite parts. Overall I give it a 9.7 The show needs more episodes like these funny and cute.moreless

    Let me start of by saying that I don’t really get into or enjoy many nicktoons. EL Tigre is different. The animation is bright and clean. The voices are done very well. In this episode ” Fistful of Collars” Manny and his best friend Frida find an easy way to make money to buy new gadgets they want. They start finding peoples lost pets and get PAID. But then when a new toy comes out that they want, they are stuck with no more pets to get rewards on, so what’s a kid to do? They steal all the pets that they have returned and then get more rewards for finding them again. I found this pretty funny. The show isn’t side splitting but just very nicely done. The crisp animation is what does it for me I guess. The buddy relationship between Manny and Frida is nice too.I like this episode and show. I'll keep watching.moreless
