  • Production Posse: From fellow Latin America-based show Elena of Avalor, we have Christian Lanz (Esteban, Achi/HueHue/Tez), Carla Tassara (Prof. Ochoa, Chata (in the pilot only)), Tony Plana (Qapa, El Pintor), and Jorge R Gutierrez (El Guerrero, Sal).
  • What Could Have Been: At 1:06:20 in this podcast, Diego Molano mentioned that he was not meant to be the original voice for Victor, but because he had a specific voice in mind for the character, he would up doing the voice himself.
  • The Wiki Rule: Here.
  • Write Who You Know: Diego Molano mentioned how he based Victor and Valentino on himself. Specifically, Victor is a reflection of him when he was a kid who thought he knew everything, while Valentino is based on himself when he was older and smarter. Likewise, Grandma Chata is based on his own grandmother.
