Cartoon Network is celebrating Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead), an important Mexican holiday observed November 1-2. The tradition-filled day, which originated in Mexico and Central America, is a time for families to share memories of loved ones.
Drawn to Dia de Muertos highlights siblings Santiago (age 7), Sebastien (age 8) and Sophie (age 10) sharing the importance of this Latino holiday and how they decorate their ofrenda to honor departed loved ones. The episode also features the Imagen Award-nominated Cartoon Network series, Victor and Valentino.
