  • Ok first off I have to say that Zebra donkey wasn't as good at "Adios Amigos".

    Ok first off I have to say that Zebra donkey wasn't as good at "Adios Amigos". It was good but kind of dumb at the same time but thats not why I'm writing this. The relationship between Manny and Frida in the second episode is why I love "Adios Amigos" so much. The way Manny wants to protect her is cute in so many ways. I also have to add baby Manny is just adorable! "Adios Amigos" is certainly a top favorite of mine, anyone else think Manny is just too cute when he's sad or worried about Frida ^_^ ? Also the fact about Frida's dad not being Manny's biggest fan was a good plus kind of. As always the humor was great and the characters are always super awesome!moreless

  • NOTES (6)


    • Sartana of the dead attacking with her guitar is similar to the villian Ember in "Danny Phantom" as Ember also attacks and draws her power from the guitar.

    • The Villan Sartana of the Dead is a parody of Carlos Santana, the famous guitarist from Santana.
