Program Description
Maya reads Don Quixote de la Mancha and is inspired by the themes of truth, honor, and courage found in the novel. When Miguel's favorite flavor of ice cream is discontinued, she decides they must go on a Don Quixote-style quest to get the flavor reinstated. They don a variety of household objects as makeshift knight's armor, and set out on their trusty "steeds" (Maya's bike and Miguel's skateboard). On the way to the ice cream shop, they encounter several people in need. Maya (who acts as Don Quixote in this tale) says that as knights, they must stop and help them. Miguel (who takes the place of Sancho Panza) wants to get to the ice cream shop as soon as possible, but is convinced by Maya to help. They stop and help Mrs. Salviati (who Maya sees as a helpless damsel) cross the street, Sr. Felipe deliver the mail (Maya sees him as a medieval scribe facing a bull), and return a cellphone to a businessman (Maya sees him as a King who has dropped a jewel). They finally make it to the ice cream shop and confront the "giant" (i.e., the shop owner, in Maya's fantasy), but their numbers are too small to convince him. Spying a nearby TV reporter, Miguel gets an idea and convinces her to help them. With her report, everyone in the neighborhood shows up to support Maya and Miguel's quest... and the ice cream flavor is reinstated.
