Diego and Glot (Spanish: Diego y Glot), sometimes stylized as Diego & Glot, is a Chilean animated series created by Claudio Kreutzberger in 2005, with the collaboration of Sebastián Correa and José Tomás Correa of CuboNegro studios, for Canal 13. Diego and Glot is the first hand-draw animation TV series made in Chile since the Condorito shorts in the 1980s (excluding Villa Dulce, which was released before Diego and Glot, but it was made with CGI). Satirical humor, cultural references and real famous public people of the country is recurrently featured in the show.[1]

Since its debut on September 3, 2005 the show has broadcast two seasons and 15 episodes. CuboNegro is now working on a third season and a feature-length movie, still without release date.[2]

Settings and Production[edit]

Diego y Glot takes place in Santiago, Chile and shows the Plá Perez, a dysfunctional family center on the youngest child, Diego Plá, and his pet, a green quiltro dog named Glot. Original creator Claudio Kreutzberger designed Diego and Glot as a "reflection of the modern Chilean youth".

Diego y Glot uses a sitcom style of storyboards and was heavily inspired by other animated series that lampoon aspects of the human condition, specially The Simpsons and Hey Arnold!. Diego and Glot also uses "guest stars" or cameo appearances of famous people or groups in Chile, like the music band Los Prisioneros, ex-Chilean president Ricardo Lagos or TV animator Don Francisco.[3]

The first season consist of 10 chapters transmitted between September 3 and October 1, 2005 on the Chilean TV station Canal 13. The second season started on July 13, 2009 and is still on-going.
