Western Animation: Simplemente Rita
Nothing says love like being yanked by the arms.
"Simplemente Rita" (Simply Rita) was a very unusual combination of a telenovela (Latin American Soap Opera) and a cartoon show. A scathing parody of Telenovela clichés (as well as of the life of immigrants in the United States), it was produced by a Colombian animation company for the International Telemundo network from 2001 to 2003. It was in Spanish and ran for 30 episodes. It still reruns on some Telemundo affiliates.

The story was about a young woman named Rita who goes to New York City to try to achieve her dream of becoming a famous singer. She falls in love with a clueless former rich brat named José Gabriel who is also an immigrant, and her musical career is manipulated by Pete Duke, a candidate for city mayor who is desperately trying to earn the votes of the Hispanic community. Hilarity Ensues.

You can watch it online (in Spanish) here [1].
