A loving cartoon family reconnects this month, when Nickelodeon debuts the brand-new, hour-hour The Casagrandes special “Operation Dad” on Monday, January 20 at 7 p.m. ET/PT. In this outing, Ronnie Anne tries to convince her visiting father Dr. Santiago (voiced by Eugenio Derbez of Overboard) to move to the city — and, with the help of Sid, devise a plan that seems too good to fail!
Dr. Santiago is amicably divorced from Ronnie Anne’s mother Maria, and he is a physician living and working in Peru. He works with Physicians on Missions, an organization that cares for children, and provides vaccines and health care in clinics throughout the world. Like his daughter, Dr. Santiago is adventurous, funny, kindhearted and charismatic. He and Ronnie Anne share a special bond despite the distance. They regularly catch up via video chat, and she’s always excited to receive care packages from his world travels.
The Casagrandes tells the story of Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes. A spinoff of The Loud House, the series showcases the culture, humor, and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family. New episodes continue to premiere on Nickelodeon.
