¡Mucha Lucha! (later known as ¡Mucha Lucha!: ¡Gigante! for the third and final season) is an American-Mexican-
Canadian animated television series that premiered on Kids' WB on August 17, 2002. It was created by Eddie Mort and Lili Chin and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. It is the first animated television series created with Adobe Flash, a program which has since become widely used as a medium for animation. The show was also seen on Teletoon in Canada, CITV, Kix! and Disney XD in the UK, and Cartoon Network worldwide (including the US).
The show is set in a fictional Mexican town centered on lucha libre (nearly everyone in the town has a mask and costume and a signature move) and is essentially about the adventures of three children, Rikochet, Buena Girl, and the Flea, as they struggle through the Foremost World-Renowned International School of Lucha, where they study.
In 2005, the direct-to-video feature film ¡Mucha Lucha!: The Return of El Maléfico was spun-off from the series.
