Created last year for a Journal in Spain. Dont know if was finally published :P

Some info about "Cantinflas":
Mario Moreno was a Mexican comic film actor, producer, and screenwriter known professionally as "Cantinflas". He often portrayed impoverished campesinos or a peasant of pelado origin. The character came to be associated with the national identity of Mexico, and allowed Cantinflas to establish a long, successful film career that included a foray into Hollywood. Charlie Chaplin once commented that he was the best comedian alive.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Didn't think I'd ever see Cantinflas on Newgrounds in any form but here we are.

With a happy go lucky expression, I'm pretty sure he's made someone mad as usual. I think you did a good job in showing the kind of person he was, on stage and off. A man who played out of luck characters, which he himself grew up in poverty, still found reasons to smile and make others smile too. I just wish I had understood his comedy as a child but as a kid, the Three Stooges and the emerging Pixar films simply won out.

This picture has become a nice trip down memory lane and now I feel like calling my parents so we can watch some of his films again. Thanks for helping us remember Moreno the way I believe he wanted to be seen: a very funny and entertaining man.

*This review quickly became kinda personal didn't it? lol
