You know, "Jeepers! It's The Jaguaro" presented a terrible depiction of Brazil, but it was 1978, so kinda forgivable I'd say. But this one was disapointing. The people/places names are more spanish than portuguese. And the villain, Eshu, it's a religious figure (sort of an angel) for some of us. There's a lot of interesting folkloric creatures they could have used instead.
Agreed about the Jaguaro episode being a horrible depiction of Brazil..and native people in general...but I'm surprised to hear that they didn't do their research for this one. Though given the animation being so horrible maybe they just cut corners on researching too?
