El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera is an animated series produced for Nickelodeon and Nicktoons Network. The first screening of the show was on January 19, 2007 in the first ever Nickelodeon Creative Summit held in San Juan, Puerto Rico as a special treat for the 60 exclusive attendees (The Summit was led by 4 of the main branches of Nickelodeon). Later sneak peeks aired on February 19, with the series television debut on March 3, 2007 for both networks. It premiered on YTV on May 4, 2007. The entire series is available on iTunes as Season 1, Also on the "PlayStation Network" Store.



Set in the fictional crime-ridden Mexican city of Miracle City, El Tigre follows the adventures of Manny Rivera, a regular 13-year-old boy with superpowers trying to choose between being good or evil . His father, a superhero known as White Pantera, wants Manny to grow up to be good and fight evil, but Manny's Grandpapi, a supervillain known as Puma Loco, thinks Manny should go to the dark side.


El Tigre was created by a husband-and-wife team named Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua along with others who were employed to make the show. The couple made the project from experiences they had when they were younger. Manny Rivera is based on Jorge's young self. Many things known of the show were based on actual events or parts in Jorge's life. His father was an artist (which was viewed as good) and his grandfather was a general in the military (which was viewed as evil). That idea was exaggerated to the idea of Super Heroes and Villains. The city Miracle City is based on Mexico City, where Jorge grew up.
