    The researchers found that children only paid attention when the characters and their animations appeared in the pilot tests; however, initially, it was thought that the interaction between the characters and humans would confuse the children. The magic that surrounds Plaza Sésamo productions largely lies in the fast pace, skillful production, and catchy music that form the foundation of many of its contents.

    Both Enrique and Beto share a department where funny stories are developed, which teach the value of friendship and teamwork. Enrique and Beto are best friends. They seem to have a slightly tense agreement about their characteristic styles, as Enrique prefers a more relaxed, horizontal way of wearing shirts, while Beto distinguishes himself by wearing vertical ones.
