¡Mucha Lucha! (later known as ¡Mucha Lucha!: Gigante for the third and final season) is a Mexican-American 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.


The show is set in Luchaville, a fictional Southern California 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, Buena Girl, and the Flea, as they struggle through the Foremost World-Renowned International School of Lucha, where they study.

Why it Rocks

  1. The series marks one of the few times a show was made in Mexico by people from Mexico.
  2. It's not everyday that the wrestling style of Lucha Libre is showcased like the way it is in the show. It's excellent, the fact that anyplace at anytime a ring would pop up and the wrestlers would perform slick, creative and seemingly impossible attacks.
  3. The voice acting is really great and expressive, especially from Carlos Alazraqui, Kimberly Brooks, Candi Milo, Michael Donovan, Tabitha St. Germain, Lee Tockar, and many more.
  4. It even got a direct-to-video film called ¡Mucha Lucha!: The Return of El Malefico.
  5. There are likable and funny characters such as Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea.
  6. Amazing, memorable and catchy theme song Theme song by Mexican band Chicos del Barrio.
  7. It was a breakthrough, being one of the first flash cartoons made for TV.
  8. In the episodes there is decent Flash animation for the its time.
  9. The show includes some good morals and, in each episode, Rikochet would talk to the audience in a respectful way.
  10. There are many different characters and interesting character designs which are good on the eyes.
  11. The theme song is cool, catchy and coincides with the Mexican style of the cartoon.
  12. The music by Michael Tavera is awesome.

Bad Qualities

  1. The plots for some episodes are kinda weak. But the overall theme of the show is still creative.
  2. There is a lot of toilet humor, because of the Flea. He literally defecates on a dummy in one episode.
  3. The Flea can be unlikable sometimes and irritating.
  4. While the Flash animation was decent, sometimes, it can get mediocre and awkward.
  5. Some bad episodes like "The Musica Man", "Shamrock N Roll", "Monkey Business", "La Bruja", and "Flea at Last".


  • Carlos Alazraqui was replaced by Jason Marsden as the voice of Rikochet in the final season, due to Alazraqui's commitments on Reno 911!.
