50 Fabulous Years: An Unforgettable Blend of ’90s Magic, Humor, and Investigation
A nostalgic encounter in the third episode of the special series that celebrates 50 years of Fantástico. Mr. M, the Masked Paladin, reviews the presenter Cid Moreira, who at the end of the 1990s narrated the scene in which Prince Surtelgeus unveils magic tricks. A success that entered the program’s history as well as the nicknames the caller used for the character.
“The first time I saw Fantástico, I heard Cid’s voice, the way the program put the picture together, and I thought it was amazing. Families got together and parents let the kids stay up late. And they never forgot it. The painting really touched people’s hearts here in Brazil” Senhor de Todos os Sigridos recalls.
“Since I was a boy, I have been fascinated by the magic done in the circus and the theatre. Mr. M came to satisfy my curiosity,” continues Mr. Moreira, who is now 96 years old.
In addition to this special moment, the documentary also features a special edition of one of the most memorable depictions of humor in the 50-year history of Show da Vida. Created by actress Denise Faraga “fee” It was first broadcast in May 2000 and was based on a television remake of a real-life event starring the author of this story.
Denise interprets the story of Producer Renata Rodriguez (today, International Coordinator of Fantástico), who was hired at the time on a temporary basis to work on Show da Vida, and her daunting task of being appointed to the Sunday team.
“I was very happy with this invitation to do ‘Portrait Spoken’ again and to be able to share in the history of this program that is part of my existence. It confirms that doing a Fantástico is a prize to be won in life,” actress Carioca said in a testimonial to the documentary. About the painting she made for the last time on the program in 2007.
