  • I can see why I didn't watch this show very often.

    It's not bad, but it's not exactly a show kids would find the most interesting; the plots are generic, the characters are nothing new and the Spanish dialogue goes by too fast for kids to catch on. On the positive side, kids will still learn some vocabulary and the show provides some humor to bring a smile or a small chuckle to them. I recommend you have your child (between 5-7 preferably) take a look at this show and maybe they'll learn something about Spanish culture. That's the show judge by itself; in comparison, Dora is obviously better and worth a higher recommendation. Maya and Miguel, brother and sister and just ok as well.moreless
  • One of the best shows to ever

    That's all I can say.
  • AIN'T A FAN!

    People may say everyone is stupid except for Maya. I think Maya is the true idiot of this show that makes everyone's life worse based on her stupidity. The question that comes to my mind is who is more stupid:

    A. The one who continually comes up with stupid ideas


    B. The people who follows the idiot's idea.

    In my mind, both are equally dumb.

    I wish I could give it 0 stars but Miguel is the only tolerable character in the bunch. Everyone else is either an imbecile (Maya and her friends) or don't give Maya any consequences (her Morals are very poorly taught. Animation is okay. Lastly, each story is a mess.moreless
  • All time

    . Do think sometimes Maya and Miguel will become Most Popular kids tv series of All time? Hmmm
  • Noticed something?

    Everyone in here is stupid except Maya.

    Plot: Maya helps the other characters in this show because they act very stupid that they cause mistakes.

    Characters: It makes me give some question why this show has no balance and order. Maya is the only smart character in this show, the smartest. And it's very unfair to the other characters around and Maya herself. Voice acting is above average.

    Value: Helping everyone is a great lesson, but why are those characters are too dumb and lazy? It's really off balance.

    Art: It's okay I guess. Animation is good.

    Overall: 1.5. The other characters needs to have a member that is in military service so they can sharpen themselves up.
