The one-minute episodes of "Sugar Skulls" will be aired on Discovery Kids from October 20 to November 20

Contrary to what foreigners may think, the Day of the Dead offerings are far from being dark and solemn; in fact, they are full of color. Bright orange cempasúchil (marigold) flowers, and ornamented sugar skulls are some of the elements that give altars their festive and vital atmosphere.

The Mexican tradition has become a symbol around the world ever since Disney had a taste of its power with the movie “Coco.”

The producer Roberto Gómez Fernández is on his way of taking his own version of the Day of the Dead celebration to the big screen.

The son of “Chespirito” is working on a movie about the Day of the Dead. However, the project has not reached the big screen yet due to a problem with distribution.

In the meantime, him and the production company Metacube have developed a mini-series called “Sugar Skulls”: A comedy about a small axolotl that tries to distract three skulls from their daily activities.

“Carlos invited us to participate. He is the director of Metacube, a producer with which we associated to make the Day of the Dead movie, which will come out next year. They had the idea of making these small clips and I asked them to help promote Mexican culture in the Day of the Dead.”

The one-minute episodes will be aired on Discovery Kids from October 20 to November 20. “We are proud that this project was made in a Mexican animation studio, we believe that Mexican animation is enjoying one of its best moments,” commented Mariana Cano, content director of Discovery Kids.
