  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

It's sad when your parrot is wiser than you are.


Maya & Miguel (2004-2007) is an American educative animated series about the misadventures of a pair of Hispanic children. As the Expository Theme Tune states, they are "brother and sister and best friends as well." The series seeks to make Hispanic culture more familiar to the audience and also teach some Spanish words in the process. Unlike some other Edutainment series, Maya & Miguel is actually well-written and humorous, although it does suffer from the use of Gratuitous Spanish and too much focus on the ethnicity of the characters.

Maya Santos is an energetic pre-teen girl of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent who can't resist helping people with their problems even when not asked to; this invariably causes trouble but her brother Miguel, despite pointing that out, always ends up helping her anyway. Everything ends well by the end however. The series seems set in the real world; the only unusual sight is how Maya's hairband glows whenever she has an idea, but that seems to be visible only to the viewers. Her Catch Phrase is "Eso es!" ("That's it!")

Other characters in the series include their parents, their grandmother, their friends (which include a white boy with only one arm) and Paco, a talking parrot.

Maya: That is so weird. Miguel said the same thing to me just this morning.
