Latino Rebels Interviews Smiley and Chuy, Puppet Leads of “Hey Vato” Web Show

This is a Latino Rebels first.

Yesterday we interviewed Smiley and Chuy, the two puppet leads from “Hey Vato,” an edgy web comedy series that our friends at shared with us last year. The show has a dedicated cult following, and its creators are now trying to raise funds for a 15-minute short film. We have gotten to know the creative guys behind the show —Robert Vasquez (co-creator, voice of Chuy), Juan Rodriguez (co-creator, director), Marc Rivera (co-creator, voice of Smiley)— and they are REALLY SUPER NICE and HUMBLE. We also always thought that their show was unique. And after making a contribution to their IndieGogo campaign, we asked to interview Smiley and Chuy.


Here it is. Our first puppet interview.

For more information about the show, watch its IndieGogo trailer.

The show has a Facebook page, and you can catch all the episodes on YouTube.

And here’s the show’s theme song, “Pan Dulce” by Gagdet Car.

The Gnostics derived their leading doctrines and ideas from Plato and Philo, the Zend-avesta, the Kabbalah, and the Sacred books of India and Egypt; and” thus introduced into the bosom of Christianity the cosmological and theosophical speculations, which had formed the larger portion of the ancient religions of the Orient, joined to those of the Egyptian, Greek, and Jewish doctrines, which the Neo-Platonists had equally adopted in the Occident..It is admitted that the cradle of Gnosticism is probably to be looked for in Syria and even in Palestine. Most of its expounders wrote in that corrupted form of the Greek used by the Hellenistic Jews…and there was a striking analogy between their doctrines and those of the Judeo-Egyptian Philo of Alexandria; itself the seat of three schools, at once philosophic and religious, the, the Egyptian, and the Jewish. Pythagoras and Plato, the most mystical of the Grecian philosophers (the latter heir to the doctrines of the former), and who had travelled, the latter in Egypt, and the former in Phoenicia, India, and Persia, also taught the esoteric doctrine…The dominant doctrines of Plutonism were found in Gnosticism
