The Video
Abuela's old friend from Mexico, Carlota, cancels a planned visit and Abuela is heartbroken. Or at least that's how she seems to Maya. To cheer her up, Maya, Miguel, and friends decide to make a secret "surprise" video of "A Day in the Life" of their grandmother. But their amateur efforts at documentary go awry when they keep losing track of their star in her travels through their neighborhood.

Decisions, Decisions
Maya and Miguel are thrilled when they win tickets to an extreme sports competition... but disappointed to see they have only four tickets, not enough for them to bring all their friends. The twins devise competitions to decide which two of their four friends will get their extra tickets. Abuela Elena, meanwhile, has decided to return to her previous love of running, and enter a competition especially for seniors, with Maya and Miguel helping her train. The twins are horrified to discover that their extreme sports expo is on the same day as Abuela's senior race. How will they decide which event to attend? Their parents advise them to listen to their heart. After much soul searching (and coin-flipping), Maya and Miguel decide they want to see their Abuelita's competition. And the lucky beneficiaries are their four friends, who receive the tickets to the extreme sports expo.

A Rose Is Still A Rose
When Abuela Elena leaves town for a few days, she entrusts an eager Maya with the care and feeding of her prized roses. Unfortunately, while Maya's heart is in the right place, she is too eager to get Abuela's roses growing quickly. Miguel, meanwhile, wants to become a wrestler and begins taking lessons from Gus "El Guamazo" Lopez, former luchador. But instead of getting an exciting luchador costume and learning show-wrestling moves, Gus teaches Miguel the actual principles of wrestling (which often, to Miguel's horror, resemble baking in Gus' bakery). As Maya slowly destroys Abuela's roses, Miguel gets frustrated with the slow pace of his training and quits. But when Maya's overzealousness in the garden leads to a flood of over-watering, Miguel hops into action, using the moves taught to him by Gus Lopez to overcome the flood. In the end, both Maya and Miguel learn the value of patience and consistency - in gardening, wrestling and life.

A Star Is Born
Santiago is going to make a television commercial for his pet store... but when Maya hears what he has in mind, she decides to take over and produce something flashier, to really draw in customers. Together with Miguel, she puts together the entire production. Paco, meanwhile, dreaming of his big break in show business, continually pops up, trying to get on camera... but is repeatedly rebuffed as Maya's production goes haywire. Santiago wants to make his simple commercial, but Maya won't hear of it. She enlists a professional director (Fabian) to come and make it even more stupendous... but he ends up replacing Santiago with an actor playing him! In the end, Fabian is removed, and Maya comes to realize that Santiago should make a commercial that honestly represents him and his pet store... which he does.

Paper Girl
Maya decides that the lackluster school newspaper needs some zing, so she agrees to be editor and enlists all her friends to help out. But when their articles are a little too ordinary, she injects a dose of creative editing that makes the paper the talk of the school. But when people realize Maya doesn't have her facts straight, her reputation as a journalist is on the line, and she has to make amends -- before the midnight deadline.

Miguel's Wonderful Life
It's Christmas, and the Santos family is getting ready for the festivities. Maya, in her enthusiasm, manages to mess up things for Miguel: she spills juice on his book report, volunteers him to hang a pinata in class (a task which makes him take a humiliating fall), volunteers him to wear a too-big Santa suit and follow her around wishing their neighbors happy holidays (his pants fall down in front of everyone), and smudges a painting he was making as a gift to his parents. Frustrated, Miguel angrily declares that he wishes he never had a sister. The next day, he awakens to find his wish has come true; Maya doesn't exist, and nobody's ever heard of her. Paco (who has inexplicably become incredibly articulate) follows him aroundcommenting as Miguel takes in how the world has changed. At first, it seems like all his Maya-made troubles are over... but then Miguel sees how the lack of Maya's influence has adversely affected the world: Maggie and Chrissy aren't friends because they had a difference of opinion (which Maya had previously helped them overcome) Mr. Nguyen isn't their teacher because he felt unappreciated (Maya had made him feel appreciated), Jimmy McCorkle became a bully, etc. Finally realizing how much worse everything is without Maya, Miguel regrets he ever made the wish, and wishes it all to be reversed. Poof! The world goes back to normal. Maya is back, Miguel's painting is still ruined, and Miguel couldn't be happier to have a twin sister.

The Wedding
Rosa's cousin, Angelina, has just gotten engaged! As she shares her fantasy for the perfect wedding with the Santos family over dinner, the grim-faced groom arrives with some news: he has received a promotion that will take him out of the country. Angelina is disappointed; she had wanted a wedding with her family, in town. Maya proclaims that they can host the wedding at their house, and have everything ready in just two days! Though stunned by this, Rosa and Santiago agree to help, and the countdown begins. Abuela is baking Mexican wedding cookies for the reception, Santiago is playing guitar and singing, Rosa is sewing the dress, Miguel is giving the toast, and Maya has been given a great honor: to hold the 13 gold coins for the ceremony known as Las Arras. As always seems to happen at weddings, many things start to go wrong. Paco has eaten all the cookies for the reception, Santiago has lost his voice, and the wedding dress is mangled in a faulty sewing machine. The Santos family is devastated. But Maya won't let them lose heart and is determined to help them fix everything before the wedding. It seems everything is going according to plan again, until Maya realizes she has lost the gold coins for Las Arras! Certain they were lost in the dough for the cookies, Maya and Miguel hop into action. They break open or eat many of the baked cookies... to no avail. At the ceremony, Maya tries to tell Angelina that she doesn't have the 13th coin... until Paco arrives, clutching the lost coin, and hands it off to Maya! Angelina and Pedro are thrilled by their meaningful wedding, all thanks to Maya and family.

Their friends are not impressed with this gift, however... and Maya vows to make something that will help their hard-working mom feel more relaxed and happy. They decide to make a facial mask which consists of a series of highly exotic ingredients, including hummingbird feathers, snakeskin and yak's milk. Maya, Miguel and the gang split up to collect the ingredients, but encounter many difficulties... including some of the ingredients mysteriously disappearing! In the end, Maya and Miguel have failed to bring it all together and go back to the original potholder. Rosa is delighted with the gift. After all, it's the thought that counts. At this, Paco appears with a gift of his own: a facial mask he made with the ingredients he took from Maya and Miguel!

Miguel hates Valentine's Day. He considers it a greeting card holiday. Maya loves Valentine's Day. She considers it an opportunity to tell your loved ones how much you care about them. As Maya prepares herself for the best Valentine's Day ever, Miguel is horrified to learn that he has been chosen as the official Cupid of the school this year, and must deliver valentines throughout the school, attired in cupid wings. He begs and pleads with anyone and everyone to take over his job, to no avail. He straps on the wings and begins halfheartedly delivering the valentines to thrilled students throughout the school. At the end of the day, he tosses the whole getup in the trash, eager to be done with this accursed holiday. Maya, meanwhile, thinks Miguel is lucky to be able to deliver so much happiness and joy, and gets the idea to start a free valentines delivery service for the rest of the neighborhood. Unfortunately, her helper Paco manages to stuff the wrong valentines into the wrong envelopes, and all the valentines are delivered to the wrong people, with insulting results. Soon a mob confronts Maya. Miguel, seeing the mob, digs his cupid wings out of the trash and hops into action to save his sister. In the end, the once angry neighbors are thrilled with the job Miguel does of spreading Valentine's Day cheer... and Miguel's heart grows a few sizes towards the holiday he once hated.

Paging Dr. Maya
When a break from school comes, everyone looks forward to frittering away the days doing something fun and enjoyable. Maya's idea of "fun and enjoyable" is helping people. She tries to volunteer at the Community Center bingo game, but ends up accidentally wreaking havoc. When one of the bingo players recommends Maya volunteer for his daughter, Dr. Dasgupta the veterinarian, Maya jumps at the chance. She has a special bond with animals, after all. But when Maya mis-hears a conversation Dr. Dasgupta is having, she mistakenly believes that Dr. Dasgupta is going out of business. Eager to help her favorite vet, Maya launches a campaign to draw more business to Dr. Dasgupta's clinic... which works too well! Soon even elephants are lining up for treatment. Dr. Dasgupta is mortified... she wasn't planning on going out of business, she was planning on going on vacation! Fortunately, it all works out in the end when Maya calls in Dr. Dasgupta's father, who is also a veterinarian.

A House Divided
Tired of constantly bumping into each other, Maya and Miguel opt to split the apartment in half. They run a piece of tape down the middle, and promise not to cross it under any circumstances. Unfortunately for Maya, the bathroom is on Miguel's side. Unfortunately for Miguel, the umbrellas are on Maya's side, and it's raining. Splitting the apartment turns out to be harder than they thought! When they are forced to work together on a diorama for school, they enlist Tito's help to move supplies back and forth between them, rather than cross the tape. During the project-making, Paco ends up in a bucket of paper machier, and Maya and Miguel finally cross the tape barrier to save him. In the end, they learn from Tito (an only child) what a gift it is to have a sibling.

The Big Idea
Miguel's soccer team has made it to the championships, and he's nervous. Maya has a great idea to quell his nerves: intensive training the morning of the game. Miguel is skeptical of Maya's idea, worried that he might be late to catch the bus to the game, but Maya assures him she will keep him on schedule. Unfortunately, she fails; Miguel misses the bus. He fumes and blames Maya and her "big ideas", which always cause grief. Maya defends her big ideas, while also promising Miguel to get him to the game on time. Maya and Miguel go on a transportation-hopping adventure as they take trains, trucks, buses and finally a horse and carriage, in a desperate effort to get Miguel to the game on time. Through it all Maya asserts that the reason her ideas work is that she believes in the person she's trying to help. In the end they make it to the game, Miguel helps his team win the Championship, and finally admits that Maya's ideas are big and beautiful.

When the usually meticulous Rosa scorches the family breakfast, Maya thinks the apartment is cursed with bad luck. Using Maggie's grandmother's Guide to Feng Shui (which they don't really have time to read thoroughly), Maya, Miguel and the gang redecorate the entire place in an effort to restore positive energy before Santiago brings home an important supplier for dinner that evening.

This results in the proverbial unstoppable force (Maya) meeting the immovable object (Miguel and his boys trying to play ball).

While Maya and Miguel are searching with their Abuela Elena for treasures through her seemingly bottomless trunk of memories, they happen upon an old menu from her defunct restaurant "La Cocinita." She rhapsodizes dreamily about the menu - summoning magical concoctions with mystical powers that can cure an ill-tempered grouch. After a walk around the neighborhood, they see grumpiness and general disharmony everywhere, and Maya quickly decides that not only Abuela Elena, but the whole neighborhood is in need of a New Cocinita to bring happiness and harmony to everyone with the magic of the old recipes. Enlisting her friends to be the kitchen and wait staff, Maya prepares for the big opening night over Miguel's steady stream of protests and warnings.

Unfortunately, this, too, is a disaster. When Abuela is finally told the truth, Maya is surprised - Abuela is happy! Not about the calavera, but about Maya's good grade on her presentation.

Horrified, Miguel wants to have nothing to do with this show, but Mrs. Langley won't let him out of the deal. The only person who could do that is the Class President. Maya has a bright idea: Maggie will run for Class President. She's popular, and nobody else is running! Then she can change the show to suit both her and Miguel. Unfortunately, someone else decides to run, an unassuming kid named Simon. Maya and Maggie try to out-glitz Simon, by sponsoring makeovers and re- decorating the cafeteria, with comically disastrous results. Simon, meanwhile, takes the time to listen to the concerns of the other students. In the end, Maggie comes to realize that Simon cares about what the other students want, while she was only running for selfish reasons... and so she announces at the presidential debate that she is supporting Simon. Simon wins by a landslide... and his first act as President is to appoint Maggie to be director of School Assembly Day, to change the show however she wants.

Tito's Mexican Vacation
Maya notices something's wrong with Tito. He's not interested in playing soccer or eating ice cream. Is he sick? It turns out he's homesick. It all starts when Tito gets a postcard from his cousins in Mexico. Tito misses them and misses his former home. Maya, eager to help her cousin feel better, decides that if they can't take Tito back to Mexico, they'll bring Mexico to Tito! Maya ropes the rest of the gang into helping her with the research and acquisition of Mexican objects, foods, and information. Events escalate with typically Maya-esque results, and pretty soon the Community Center is packed with all things Mexican. Unfortunately, one thing leads to another, and the entire display is destroyed... right before Tito gets to the Center. Maya is mortified, but Tito is happy. Seeing how much everyone cared about him helped to lift his homesickness. After all, he is home with Maya, too. Just then the big surprise appears: Tito's cousins, brought from Mexico!

He kicks Miguel's soccer ball over the building, rips apart Maya's favorite video game, and commands Theo to remember his name...or else. Maya, however, is not so sure; she thinks maybe Jimmy's not so bad. When Jimmy buys Maya and Miguel's favorite bunny rabbit from the pet store, Maya decides they have to find out once and for all whether Jimmy really is a bully, or just misunderstood.

I've Got to Be Mi-Guel
Tito really admires his big cousin Miguel. So much so, in fact, that he begins to feel bad about himself - after all, Miguel does everything so well, it's sometimes hard to measure up. But at Maya's inadvertent suggestion, Tito realizes there is one way to be just as cool as Miguel: to imitate everything Miguel says, does, and wears, from his sneakers to his haircut. Miguel is flattered by this new "mini-Miguel," but Maya gradually finds the whole thing annoying, and even more so because the flattery is clearly going to Miguel's head. It's only when Tito - in helping Maya and Miguel in an emergency - discovers some of his own talents that he goes back to being just plain Tito. Everyone is thrilled to have him back.

Miguel enters a comic book contest. Before he can finish his original comic book loosely based on Aztec mythology entitled, "The Adventures of Rabbit-Bird Man," Miguel comes down with a bad cold. Miguel has left the hero in grave jeopardy, and he implores Maya to finish the comic book and save him. Maya rounds up the gang to help her think of a way to save the hero from the bad guy. In a series of vignettes, we see each kid's proposed ending: Tito imagines a heroic soccer player (who looks just like him) saving the day, Theo pitches a robot boy (who looks just like him) saving the day, and Maggie and Chrissy imagine a fantastic singing duo (who look just like them) saving the day. With the clock ticking and no clear ending, Maya decides that they should combine all of their endings together, and make one grand finale. In the end, Maya's cooperative ending nets Miguel a prize for "Most Creative."
