Trivia / Victor and Valentino

Go To

  • Acting for Two: Christian Lanz voices Huehue, Achi, and Tez.
  • Actor Allusion: Javier, the Rufio-esque leader of the Skate Park kids, is voiced by Dante Basco.
  • Actor-Inspired Element: Jason Hightower is apparently quite a goofy guy in real life according to his Star Wars Resistance castmates, which makes his role as Don Jalapeño here fitting.
  • Adored by the Network: The show gets a good amount of promotion, a great premiere slot on Saturday mornings, and has episodes available in both English and Spanish on the CN app. Also, on October 31, 2019, an all-day marathon of the show aired to celebrate Halloween, as well as the first day of Día de Muertos. On May 5, 2020, an all-day marathon aired to celebrate Cinco De Mayo.

  • 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.
