"The History of the Casagrandes" is the fifth short based on The Casagrandes.

Plot

Abuelo Hector recounts the history of the Casagrandes – in the middle of Ronnie Anne's school play!

Synopsis

At Chavez Academy, the Casagrandes are about to watch a school play starring Ronnie Anne. However, Hector is fast asleep, and Rosa wakes him just before the play can start. When the play starts, Hector states that the play can't start without him, and personally goes on stage to introduce himself and announces to the crowd that he'll be telling them about his family's history.

After tossing Ronnie Anne into the seats (after she remarks that the play is not about that), Hector, along with Carlos, sing a song that chronicles the entire history of the Casagrandes. This ranges from talking about their ancestors living in the land once known as Mesoamerica, immigrating to the USA during the Revolution, Hector falling in love with his soon-to-be-wife Rosa, him opening up the mercado, and eventually, raising the family they came to be now.

Suddenly, Rosa wakes up Hector, revealing that he was dreaming the events of the song, and that he slept through Ronnie Anne's entire play. Regardless, Hector is unfazed by this and proceeds to give out autographs (in his dreams).

Cast

Bobby, Carl, Carlitos, CJ, Carlota and Unnamed City Woman have no lines in this short.
