El Americano tells the story of Cuco, "a Mexican boy parrot that would rather imitate the crazy stunts of his TV super-parrot hero, El Americano, than help with his chores at the family bird circus." But things change when a "gang of bully birds threatens his ringmaster father and takes over the circus, Cuco sets off on a hilarious and perilous journey to Hollywood to enlist his hero in his fight, only to discover the true hero within himself."
Edward James Olmos voices Cucu's father, Gayo, and co-produces the film, which also features the vocal talent of Rico Rodriguez (Cuco), Cheech Marin (Martin), Paul Rodriguez (Divino), Erik Estrada (Punch), and Lisa Kudrow (Lucille).
