“Victor and Valentino: Folk Art Foes” Review by Suzanne 2/25/21

This show airs on Cartoon Network as “Victor and Valentino.” I reviewed it in 2019. I’m not sure why they chose to name the DVD as “Folk Art Foes” rather than just, say, “Season One.” I supposed it might be due to the fact that there are 39 episodes in season one, and this disk has only 18 episodes.

Anyway, my opinion of the show hasn’t changed. I’m glad it’s very successful and that they’re working on a third season! It’s a good animated supernatural show for kids that uses historical Mexican folk lore in the storytelling.

Victor and Valentino are half-brothers who live in the small town of “Monte Macabre” in Mexico. They explore supernatural happenings, aided by the ghost of their grandmother.

Sadly, the DVD has no features or extras of any kind. That’s too bad. It would have been nice to see some kind of feature that talks about the development of the show or the voice actors behind the characters.

Here’s a really good review that goes into way more detail than mine.
