Manolito var hjälten i TV-serien High Chaparral på 60-talet. Alla andra hjältar på den tiden var hårdkokta stereotyper utan humor. Manolito beskrevs mer poetiskt:
Beneath the happy-go-lucky attitude
and behind the laughing brown eyes,
there dwelt a man of fierce honor, loyalty and bravery.
He never hesitated to come to the aid of a friend,
stuck to his convictions, and often endangered
his own life to save someone else`s
Although he was part of the family,
he got along well with the ”bunkhouse boys”
and did his share of the work as though
he was one of them.
