Our Friday Guy this week is from the TV series “Rebelde” 2004-2006. My understanding is that this was a teen soap opera type series made for a Mexican audience but based on an earlier series made for either Argentina or Brazil. I’ve seen both mentioned. I’m sure our readers can clarify the situation for us. I don’t believe this series was ever shown on Australian TV although it may have been available on cable or streaming channels. I don’t know.
Mattel made three sets of two dolls depicting characters in the series, we got the three boys loose on eBay several years ago.
Giovanni, who doesn’t look particularly Latino to me, has now been renamed Quinn and restyled by Naomi. He has the older style straight arm Ken body.
