George Lopez Thesis

In the television series, “George Lopez,” the protagonist, George, embodies the common patriarchal qualities of the father figure, such as head of the household and the male buffoon, evident in many sitcoms centered around a working-class family, yet distinguishes himself from these conventions by acknowledging his Mexican background. In the episode, entitled “Curious George,” the representation of George portrays him as lacking common sense and epitomizes the “hot-blooded” Latino and overprotective father stereotype.
