Hermanos battle Huehuecoyotl, La Chupacabra, y más in new show about Mesoamerican folklore

Diego Molano's new adventure series on Cartoon Network showcases the myths and legends of Mesoamerican culture, from central Mexico to Central America.

"It’s weird that no one knows who Quetzalcoatl was, which is a feathered serpent god of the Aztecs," said Molano in an interview with Remezcla. "No one knows who Tezcatlipoca is. Or Huitzilopochtli. Or Xipe Totec—all these really cool stories and gods and myths and legends."

“These stories are ... 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 told Vanity Fair, explaining why he created the series.

Equal parts spooky and hilarious, "Victor and Valentino" is set in the fictional (and mysterious) town of Monte Macabre and follows the adventures of brothers Victor and Valentino. 

Unlike his rule-following older brother Val, Vic is a travieso, getting the pair into trouble with all sorts of creatures from indigenous folklore, including:

La Chupacabra...

La Lechuza...

Huēhuecoyōtl, the Aztec god of mischief...

and, worst of all, Abuela Chata...

The series is available in BOTH English and Spanish on the Cartoon Network streaming app and OnDemand.
