My Little Heroes

Mis Pequeños Héroes

Not all heroes wear capes or have superpowers!

Olivia is an enthusiastic girl who wants to be a superhero, but she doesn't know what her superpower is. Her older brother Bruno explains to her that she doesn't need them: she can do it by struggling and using her own skills - just as real heroes do! In each episode, Olivia, Bruno and their pet (a fat, grumpy, lazy cat called Mr. Dog) will meet a real hero (a famous historical character) in their childhood, when they have not done anything astonishing yet. Together they will live through an adventure, a challenge they will need to solve using their own abilities, and also related to the character essence. So, if Olivia wants to fly, they will meet Amelia Earhart, the pioneering female pilot. If she wants to communicate with Mr. Dog, the kids will meet Jane Goodall, who actually communicated with gorillas. Or if Bruno has to make a live speech in class, they'll meet Mozart, who performed at the aged of 5. Anyone can make a difference and become a real hero!

Director’s statement
Indeed, there are people who have achieved great, astonishing goals in life, contributing to building a better world. They don't appear in comic strips... they don't wear capes nor have superpowers! They are real people who, before being heroes, were also kids: impatient, passionate, reckless or scatterbrained... exactly the same as real children. But, if they could overcome over their difficulties, any kid in the world can also do it. That's the ultimate lesson from this show mixing fictional adventure (entertainment) with soft educational content. We want to empower kids to feel comfortable with who they are and embrace their uniqueness. Because we all have a talent, something that we are good at and makes us stand out. We are not better or worse than others, we simply have a gift, and other people will have a different one. And with patience and effort, we can turn this gift into a superpower. No matter where you are, no matter your gender, race or culture. Anyone can make a difference!
