Anyone that's known me for five minutes:
We know! You love Nicktoons Unite. You love to add ChalkZone and Bunsen is A Beast to the mix. Sophie is your biological child and Jimmy, Goddard, Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Poof, Danny, Sam, SpongeBob, Patrick, Tak, ZIM, GIR, Manny, Jenny, Mr. Blik, Snap, and Bunsen are all adopted by you. You've watched gameplay of Nicktoons Unite and all the episodes of the series's. Twice! WE KNOW!
do you happen to know if there are any latinx characters represented in cartoon shows? :0
Well at the top of the list we have multiple characters from Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Handy Manny, ¡Mucha Lucha!, Maya & Miguel, and El Tigre - all of which center around Latinx protagonists and feature Spanish to varying degrees. These are the shows that are really getting little Latinx kids in the US to feel comfortable in their own skin and I wish they had been around when I was growing up.
I am so happy that we have shows that feature Latinx characters and cultures so heavily like that and that they are made for a very young audience, but almost all of us already know about those shows. So here are some animated Latinx characters that I think are deserving of more love…
Rex and Caesar Salazar from Generator Rex
Jaime Reyes from Young Justice
Miguel O’Hara from The Ultimate Spider-Man
Paulina from Danny Phantom
Master Hector Chavez from Kaijudo
Mas y Menos from Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go
LaCienega Boulevardez from The Proud Family
Twister and Lars Rodriguez from Rocket Power
Enrique, Emmy, and Max from Dragon Tales
Izzy from Jake and The Never Land Pirates
and Carlos Ramon from The Magic School Bus
Voice actors often play characters who are not their same race/ethnicity. Some of the above characters are voiced by non-Latinx white people for example. Since this is so common we then have a selection of animated characters who are not Latinxs, but are voiced by Latinxs…
Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra is voiced by Saychelle Gabriel
Marceline Abadeer from Adventure Time is voiced by Olivia Olson
Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels is voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr
Mr. Crocker and Vicky from Fairly Odd Parents are voiced by Carlos Alazraqui and Grey Griffin respectively
Vanessa Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb is voiced by Olivia Olson
Winslow from Catdog is also voiced by Carlos Alazraqui
as is Rocko from Rocko’s Modern Life
…and that is about all the Latinx cartoon characters I can think of at the moment, if anyone else is aware of any more feel free to add on.
Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead to everyone! Even though today isn’t either of these days.
This is a drawing I wanted to do since the last year and I finally had the inspiration and time to do it! And who better to represent these celebrations than my two favorite Nickelodeon characters, El Tigre and Danny Phantom!
