The original 2005 pilot. Jorge R. Gutierrez Presents: "SUPER-MACHO!" Minuscule (TV series) Minuscule—the private life of insects is a French-made series of short video animations giving "a bird's eye view of insects' day to day existence, distorted through a burlesque, yet poetic lens".[1] The characters are computer-modelled in 3D and set against natural scenery. Each animation has a self-contained and usually humorous storyline. The audio is a combination of genuine insect and ambient recordings with artificial sound effects. The various protagonist insects often perform anthropomorphic activities, displaying ironically portrayed intelligence, enjoyment and, sometimes, pathos. The background settings are generally of rural France, and include farm houses, fences, cars, road surfaces, drains, gutters and garbage bins.

Created by Thomas Szabo and Hélène Giraud, Minuscule is produced by Phillipe Delarue. Minuscule portrays an array of eighteen or more recurring characters, usually limited to one or two in each episode, each displaying distinctive personality and behaviour. Jorge R. Gutierrez.

Cabezalcubo. Aquellos dramones para niños Nunca fui muy afecto al drama. De pequeño me debatí entre llanto pueril y rabia impotente cada que al protagonista inerme los villanos, las circunstancias, la perra vida, le retorcían el destino. Bambi, de Disney, por ejemplo, fue para mí una verdadera tragedia, así que preferí ir ensayando un cada vez más calloso cinismo. Por eso, cuando aparecieron en la barra de programación los melodramas animados que marcaron la tele en la década de los setenta, yo preferí ignorarlos o dedicarles vituperios (una primaria en Veracruz, en 1974, era más cercana en su ambiente, en su machismo encalletrado, a una cárcel o un barco que a las utopías pedagógicas de José Vasconcelos, María Montessori o san Juan Bosco): esas eran caricaturas para niñas y ñoños inseguros de su identidad.

El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, from co-creators Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua, is a visually inventive, high-octane series that combines superheroes, Mexican folklore and sitcoms. © Nickelodeon. One of my favorite Nickelodeon cartoons of recent vintage is El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, a visually inventive, high-octane series that combines superheroes, Mexican folklore, slapstick and situation comedies into a zany slice-of-life tale of family and internal conflict. Yeah, that sounds like an odd mixture, but series co-creators Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua somehow manage to pull everything together into one of the most unusual and entertaining children's cartoons on the air today. I spoke with Gutierrez about his professional background, the production of El Tigre and how to combine 1980s Mexican punk rock, Frieda Kahlo and Maurice Noble into a single package.
