B. _________________________
The show represented many aspects of Latin and Mexican culture, while making a critique on the unrealistic image of superheroes. For some reason, this character is believed by people to be a great superhero, but they usually end up disappointed when they realize he is actually weak and timid. Despite this, he did try his best to help, and all his adventures ended well. The typical episode had some person get in trouble and say aloud, "Oh! And who can help me now?" and he would appear out to save the people.
