dc.description.abstractHuevocartoon is a transnational media product from Mexico, which illustrates eggs as the main characters, which contain diverse cultural characteristics. These cartoons examine the social, cultural, and linguistic difference of American and Mexican origin audiences. The purpose of the study was to examine the symbolic implications, representation, and messages contained in the Huevocartoon animated series. Three focus groups, with a combined total of 20 students, were conducted on three consecutive days, and examined participants' various interpretations of Huevocartoon. Utilizing a qualitative approach, the results showed that Huevocartoon utilized illustration to represent the cartoons' culture, utilized attitude and humor to assert social issues, and related its characters to the "unbreakable" stereotypes found media. Huevocartoons could be used as a tool to tackle social and stereotypical issues that are commonly found in society and help find solutions to overcome these barriers.
