Where can I see EL TIGRE?

This is the number one e-mail question we seem to get. Here's what I know...

TV:
It still airs in the US on Nicktoons Network. And on Canal 5 (my favorite channel as a kid) and Nickelodeon in Mexico. We have been told it's airing everywhere in the world by fans but we don't really know which channels.

ON LINE:

You can see all 26 full length episodes on TurboNick for free!

Itunes has the first 19 episodes and will hopefully post the last 7 soon.

As far as I know, you can find every single episode on the bit torrent sites out there but the quality is all over the place.

DVD:
There's a DVD selling in Latin America called "Dia De Los Malos." I don't know if they'll ever make them for the US or any other market. Keep your fingers crossed.


VIDEOGAMES:
There's a PS2 and a Nintendo DS games out there.

El Tigre
BOOKS:
There's the big NICKTOONS book which has an El Tigre chapter (with lots of development designs) and a ton of art from all the other amazing Nick shows like Ren & Stimpy, Teenage Robot, Invader Zim, Avatar, Sponge Bob, Mighty B, etc...

And of course there's the McDonalds toys....

And the Tazos...



And I forgot (thanks Jack) about the T-Shirts we made for Nick.com...

Please let us know if it's airing in your country (thanks Romson from Russia)!

Hello, people! Your show finally broadcasting on Russian Nickelodeon and it's amazing! Now it is our favorite cartoon, my 6-years daughter and me.
First encounter was cultural shock for me – I just stay next to TV, with remote control in my hand, and watching all episode (Fool's Goal) till end, and my mouth was opened very widely, believe me. Jorge, Sandra, all team! Thanks A LOT for Manny - El Tigre!

As a broadcast designer and animator (a bit) I’ll say: it’s a masterpiece! No fools. So unusual color palette, for a modern cartoon especially, and abnormally (sic!) rich animation, character's design, details, sounds, all this stuff just cool! All of this anticipation, secondary actions, squash’n’stretch – so yummy, m-m-m! Especially now, when characters in 2d-toons looks and movies like a paralyzed. But not El Tigre!

As a parent, I will say: idea is perfect. What I like most of all: Manny learns life's lessons by himself (and with a little help from circumstance). Without of strong mentoring, and that's right.

Thanks again! Good luck!

Thank you so much for your kind words Romson!!! I'm so happy to hear the show airs in Russia. As I'm sure you can tell, Russian folk art & modern design were a huge inspiration. I hope you catch all the little salutes to your country's culture.

I really wanted to do an episode that took place in Russia (with Comrade Chaos's daughter VaVa Boom dating White Pantera). Unfortunately we never got to do it.

Thanks again!

It's finally playing in New Zealand now dude!!

Tara Billinger said...

Wow, I really hope they make a box set for America. Those tazos are so awesome! They made a ton by the looks of that pile! The nicktoons book is amazing and I still need to get a shirt from the website. The only thing you forgot are the limited edition dog tags of Tigre, Frida and Pantera that they sell on the Nick website. Those were cool.

Romson said...

“…the little salutes”? Well, my colleague says that ornament on White Pantera’s mask representing Russian “khokhloma”! Surely, he’s joking. He’s crazy about combination of black, red and yellow.

Unfortunately… Yeas, that’s sad and unfair… Cancellation was very unfair to team, unfair to fans… I don’t want to depress you, no way. What’s done can’t be undone. However, can I remind you a small story of relationship between another talented cartoonist and Nickelodeon? His name was John K. You know how it ends. In your case, I’m sure time will tell.

Anyway, you are the creators of incredible characters and amazing cartoon. And that’s a fact! (this phrase Maria says in Russian translation of El Tigre, I really don’t know how it’s sounds in original)

Matt said...

Dude, El Tigre is my latest obsession, but I'm stuck up in Canada, where both Turbonick and itunes are jerks and won't let us watch.

Is there anywhere a canuk can watch El Tigre? Not even Youtube has it anymore....

Help is utterly appreciated.

Jackson6 said...

I love El Tigre to death!!!! Your art is amazing! Are those "WANTED EL TIGRE" posters available somewhere, or can I buy one from you Jorge? cuz those rock!!! Thank you for all that you do

Jorge R. Gutierrez said...

Thanks Tara, I'll add the dog tags.

Thanks Romson! And throughout the series you will see many Soviet Union designs, symbols and even a Russian character named Comrade Chaos :)

Thanks Matt! Does TurboNick not work in Canada? You can always try bit torrent sites...

This show is absolutely amazing and I'm incredibly sorry to learn that it's been cancelled (don't blame me for not finding out until now, they've only just started airing the newer episodes here). The Dutch Nickelodeon channel has been airing this since early 2008 and as far as I know it's been doing pretty well. But then 'doing well' just doesn't quite cut it for Nickelodeon, it would seem.

Tara Billinger said...

Ugh! They took down all the full length El Tigre episodes off Turbonick! Now where am I going to see them at will?

superhalomichael said...

El tigre is a great show however it hurts to here nick canceled it just like every other good show they've had all because spongebob still walks the earth.also this was the only show I've ever seen with heart, culture, Spanish superheros, super villains, and of cores El tigre. if anyone hasn't done so then go to this website and sine the petition to bring the show back. i only pray it will be enough...
http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save-el-tigre.html

i know it sounds like its old but there are a lot of people who recently signed it and I'm going to be one of them :). good luck and never give up.

julius said...

Thanks Superhalomicheal i will sign it right now

superhalomichael said...

I forgot to mention this earlier but for anyone who is brave and kind enough there is a way to make a brand new petition for to bring El Tigre back. i will post the link here

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/help-save-el-tigre

The “create a petition” option is in the top right corner of the page. Trust me you would be a saint if you tried to make a fresh new one that I’m sure a 1000 more people would be happy to sign and besides the more up roar about the subject means more people listening. Also here's a nick poll you can join in on

http://www.nick.com/upickdaily/tv/upd-20882843.jhtml

Finally, remember that you’re not only helping yourself but you’re also making dreams come true for all the fans world wide.
If I found more info ill try to share it, till then stay frosty.
