"Victor And Valentino" will premiere in March showcasing the stories of Latin American mythology and supernatural elements.
The cartoon created by Diego Molano (The Powerpuff Girls, Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite) follows two half-brothers learning to appreciate each other’s quirks and differences while exploring Monte Macabre, a small and mysterious town, where the myths and legends of Mesoamerican folklore come to life.
“It’s easy for me to get into character now because I know him so well,” Molano shared with Variety. “Actually, Victor and Valentino were both based on me when I was a kid.”

Molano also said he has always been inspired by the great myths of pre-Hispanic indigenous people such as the Aztecs, Olmecs and Mayans. “These stories are so cool and particular and they’re not talked about at all compared to, say, Greek and Roman myths. That’s mostly why I wanted to do it because I feel like it’s hidden treasure," he added.
"Victor and Valentino " premieres Saturday March 30, 2019 in Cartoon Network. Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think:
