As time went on, more webseries and eventually cartoons did Flash animation such as Happy Tree Friends, Whirlgirl, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi, and Mucha Lucha. On March 3, 2007, El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera debuted.
The show is about a young 13-year-old boy named Manny Rivera who lives in a crime infested city in Mexico called Miracle City with his family consisting of his mother Maria, his superhero father White Pantera, and his evil villain grandfather Puma Loco. Manny struggles with his decision of whether he wants to be a superhero or super villain since his father and grandfather tries to persuade him to choose. Until he decides, Manny dons the alterego of El Tigre and goes on various adventures alongside his best friend Frida Suarez. While Manny fights against many villains, he sometimes makes mistakes joining alongside them or does various pranks that lead him towards the path of being a villain mostly persuaded by Frida. At the end, Manny learns his lesson and tries to do things right.
The show was created by a married couple named Jorge Guiterrez and Sandra Equihua. Guiterrez had previously worked as a writer for shows such as Brandy and Mr. Whiskers and Maya and Miguel and a character designer on The Buzz on Maggie, ChalkZone, and Mucha Lucha! The inspiration of El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera was actually based on somewhat actual events of Guiterrez when looking back on his childhood in Mexico City as well as creating a Mexican superhero due to a lack on them in mainstream pop culture.
