The Lucha Libre Legend Returns Cartoon Network Goes Santo
Just this week Cartoon Network announced their new line-up for 2007 which includes a new show based on the life and legend of El Santo, the greatest Mexican wrestler of all time! Immortalized in the ring and out, Santo was the star of television, comic books, and more than 50 gloriously trashy films (check out some clips here). One part Elvis, one part Harrison Ford, one part Evel Knievel, and one hundred percent folk hero, Santo's worldwide fame and popularity have made his silver mask synonymous with everything cool everywhere.
Working closely with series creator and producers is the legend's real-life son and true Isotope amigo El Hijo del Santo (ask us about the Lucha Libre Switchblade Incident that almost landed us in jail sometime) which will ensure the show has all the heroics, high flying action, and weird mystical powers we've come to expect from the legend.
Can't wait to see animated Santo? Neither could we, that's why we were poking around on Cartoon Network Mexico's website where we found this page with downloadable Santo cartoons. Nice!
