About the Project:
¡Mucha Lucha!, later known as ¡Mucha Lucha!: Gigante, is an American-Canadian animated television series that premiered on Kids’ WB on August 17, 2002. It was created by Eddie Mort and Lili Chin and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. It is the first animated television series created with Adobe Flash, a program often used for Internet cartoons. The show was also seen on Teletoon in Canada, CITV and Kix! in the UK, and Cartoon Network worldwide (including the US).
The show is set in a fictional Mexican town centered on lucha libre (nearly everyone in the town has a mask and costume and a signature move) and is essentially about the adventures of three children, Rikochet, The Flea and Buena Girl, as they struggle through the Foremost World-Renowned International School of Lucha, where they study. In 2005 the straight-to-video movie ¡Mucha Lucha!: The Return of El Maléfico was spun off of the series.
