Chronology

24 minutos (English: 24 minutes) is a Mexican children's television programme and franchise which takes the form of a mock news broadcast, and is fronted by puppets who present various items. It was first aired in August 2, 2019 on Azteca Uno and Cartoon Network. The programme was devised by Zack Isaac Sanchez and Liza Ramirez Sanchez and produced by Little Witch Pictures.

The puppets of 24 minutos represent ironic imitations of famous Mexican television celebrities and there are many references to incidents or television events which characterized Mexico in the 2000s.

A movie version entitled 24 minutos, la película, that was shot in Mexico City and Los Angeles, premiered in Mexican cinemas on 2021.
