KQED Kids: Mon, Apr 14, 2014 -- 8:30 PM

Mother's Day is coming up, and Maya and Miguel have bought their mother the perfect gift: a cat-shaped potholder. 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!

A Rose Is Still A Rose (Episode #145)

KQED Kids: Sat, Apr 12, 2014 -- 8:30 PM

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.

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?

Though stunned by this, Rosa and Santiago agree to help, and the countdown begins.

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.

Miguel's Wonderful Life (Episode #142)

KQED Kids: Wed, Apr 2, 2014 -- 8:30 PM

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.
