El Tigre follows 13-year-old Manny (voiced by Alanna Ubach, Meet the Fockers) who must choose whether to use his superpowers as El Tigre for good, or for not so good. Manny is a well-meaning kid who lives with his father and grandfather in the dynamic hot-bed, Miracle City, a spicy urban melting pot full of colorful heroes and nefarious villains. When he spins his mystical belt buckle, he transforms into the brave and powerful masked warrior, El Tigre. As El Tigre, he has the great spirit of a hero but also possesses the potential to be a great villain. His father Rodolfo (voiced by Eric Bauza) is a semi-retired superhero known as White Pantera who wants Manny to grow up to be good and honorable just like him. On the opposite end of the spectrum, his Granpapi (voiced by Carlos Alazraqui) is the retired super-villain Puma Loco, and he thinks Manny should join him on the dark side. Drawing from the popular Latino telenovelas, the storylines include exaggerated comedic situations and outrageous recurring characters.
