The 411:

My daughter and I are animation fans. We love Cartoon Network and were excited to watch this show. We have never heard of it and loved researching it as we got ready to watch. 

Apparently the show Victor and Valentino was created by Diego Molano who voices Victor. Molano, an art student turned this in as a video game. Exploring his favorite subject mythology and including Aztec and Mayan Folklore we get Victor and Valentino. Part Supernatural and part Adventure Victor and Valentino hit all the marks for an entertaining kid show.

Victor and his half brother Valentino are spending time with their almost blind, supernatural grandma are always getting in trouble as they get through their brotherly love/hate/jealously relationship. They are always trying to one up each other but always come back to how much they really care about each other. Just like typical siblings. 

We were reminded of Steven Universe because of the art style and felt that Valentino was a bit like Steven. Also, like Steven  Victor and Valentino is not short of diversity. There is an obviously implied lesbian character which also reminded us of Steve.

My daughter and I loved the inclusion of the  Latin American culture and traditions in many episodes and feel it is educational as well as entertaining.

Set for season 3, this series isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
