Synopsis

El Nombre is a masked outlaw who comes to the aid of a Mexican desert town under threat from bully-boy bandit Don Fandango. He's also a gerbil, and as masked outlaws go he's pretty rubbish! Charmingly animated in stop-motion, El Nombre teaches his friends - including Little Juan, Maria Consuela Tequilla Chiquita and Tanto the friendly tarantula - about the power of numbers whilst getting into all manner of Zorro-like scrapes. This slyly funny educational programme proves to kids that it's true, maths can be fun!

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
