The first TV cartoon series to employ the "flash" animation style popularized on the Internet, Mucha Lucha was aimed primarily at a Latino audience, though there was enough "generic" humor to satisfy everyone. The three protagonists -- Rikochet, Buena Girl, and the Flea -- were loyal fans of those mysterious masked wrestlers so popular in Mexico. Strict disciples of "Lucha Libre," the code of the Masked Mexican Wrestlers, the heroes and heroine set about to right wrongs in their own bizarre-looking neighborhood, having a lot of fun and learning all sorts of life lessons in the process. Each half-hour episode featured two self-contained 11-minute adventures, backed up by a title song performed by Chicos De Barrio. Created by Eddie Mort and Lili Chin, Mucha Lucha joined the WB network's Saturday-morning kiddie show lineup on August 17, 2002.
