Cactus Kid is by far the strangest El Tigre episode... Which is why I love it! We thought the strangemess would put a lot of people off, but we've gotten some of our best fan feedback from this episode.
There was a valid concern expressed at the script phase that Tigre sliceing up the Cactus Monsters might be too graphic. So we went with a sort of David Fincher/Friz Freeling solution to the problem.
Instead of actually seeing Tigre slice up the monsters, we implied it by cutting to reaction shots of Frida and Granpapi, and splattering cactus juices across their faces.
