  • White Pantera runs away from a fight.

    This is a very good episode. But I don`t understand one thing : why would El Mar Verde steal money , if he could just steal anything he wants to steal? As for Rising Son , the episode was funny , comical , and hillarious. El Mar Verde looked huge , and menacing. Like a huge monster. These 2 episodes looked really good , and had very good plots. The Yellow Pantera gets an A

    The Rising Son gets an A-

    You should definitely try to catch these 2 , extremely rare episodes. If you are a fan of El Tigre of course.moreless
  • Yellow Pantera was AMAZING!!

    Yellow Pantera was AMAZING!! The bond between Manny and his father is one of the reasons I love this show so much. Frida's not knowing of the library is adorable, and the ending where Manny finds Rodolpho's wallet with the family picture is just so sweet. "Dad didn't run because he was scared to fight, he ran because he was scared of leaving me and mom alone" was special for there relationship. Also Manny retelling the fake story of the superheros who went to live on a farm and chase rabbits with the face he made was just adorable. All in all Yellow Pantera is one of the best episodes so far. Something I noticed that hasn't been shown in other episodes was the wind effect. When Manny went to the mountain to confront Elma Verde I noticed the wind blowing his ears and whiskers which was a pretty cool scene. So yes I enjoyed this episode quite alotmoreless
  • Yellow Pantera was the greates episode EVER!!! Oh, the other one was good too...

    Yellow Pantera was one of the greates father/son eps in the series! I love Rodolfo's reaction when Manny found out about his father running away from a fight. So sad, yet so sweet! Plus the sacrafic a father makes for his son...TOTALLY AWSOME!!!! Plus, Frida was hilarious in this ep. "Li-brar-y?" LOL. 10/10

    The other ep was pretty cool too. I like how Rodolfo kept saying stuff like, "I swear, I'll have the city cleaned of crime by Tuesday!" lol. Very cool.7/10moreless
