Cartoon Network to Unveil "Victor and Valentino" in U.S. and Latin America on Saturday, March 30
New Animated Supernatural Series Encounters Mischief, Mayhem and Mesoamerican Myths
Cartoon Network's new supernatural adventure series Victor and Valentino will debut simultaneously with four episodes in the United States and Latin America, Saturday, March 30 at 9:30 a.m. (ET/PT), with other regions around the world to follow. Created by Diego Molano, Victor and Valentino 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.
Inspired by Molano's fascination with mythology, Victor and Valentino is the latest Cartoon Network original to feature authentic storytelling and inclusive characters. While spending the summer with their Grandma Chata, the rambunctious Victor and his more cautious half-brother Valentino soon realize there's more than meets the eye in their new town. Fans will want to follow this mischievous pair as they hilariously discover other worldly beings, curious creatures from forgotten folklore and places only described in myths.
To give audiences a sneak peek ahead of premiere, a full episode will be unlocked on the Cartoon Network App and available On Demand beginning Monday, March 4. Leading into the series premiere, 10 episodes will be available on the CN App and On Demand, with every episode available in Spanish.
Named an animator to watch by Variety in 2018, Molano previously worked as a storyboard artist on The Powerpuff Girls and has worked on Adult Swim's Black Dynamite, Superjail! and China, IL. Victor and Valentino is executive produced by Cartoon Network Studios and was developed through the studio's global Artists Program known for creating a pipeline of diverse and emerging talent.
