Fool's Goal
 Fistful of Collars is the second half of the 2nd episode of El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera.


Manny and Frida want the pricey new must-have item: LuxeBlades! They have no idea how they'll pay for these luxury techno-skates… until they stumble upon the idea of finding people's lost pets for the reward money. But soon Manny and Frida want more money for additional pricey stuff. They wind up traveling to Calavera, an impossibly tough town of banditos, to retrieve Taco, the lost dog of one of Miracle City's richest families.

Episode Summary

Manny is taking random objects out of a garbage can, while Frida is making something out of them. They're revealed to be roller skates and cardboard safety gear. Manny thinks they're great, as his dad says,"You don't need money to have fun." Manny and Frida start skating through Miracle City, and eventually crash. They spot an advertisement for brand new roller skates called LuxeBlades, and decide to make money for them. Frida is suddenly attacked by a weasel, whose owner comes to retrieve, and gives them money as a reward.

The two realise they could earn money by returning lost pets to their owners. Manny, as El Tigre, rounds up every lost pet in no time, earning enough money for the LuxeBlades. As they have fun with them, another kid zooms by them in a new product, the Luxe Scooter.
