One of the biggest controversies involving Drawing Keys was the absence of one of the main characters from the original series, the Chiquinha. This happened due to a fight that Maria Antonieta de las Nieves, the actress who played the character in the series, had with the Bolaños team.

According to news published at the time, Nieves had a legal dispute with Bolanõs after registering Chiquinha in his name, causing the series creator to lose the copyright to the character.

This whole situation involving both parties resulted in the exclusion of Seu Madruga’s daughter’s participation from the show, which was widely questioned by fans and the media during the show’s premiere.

Even over time, animation audiences never forgot the lack of Chiquinha and several rumors emerged indicating that the character would be inserted in later seasons. However, this never happened.

Additionally, the show received negative reviews from pundits, who pointed out that the cartoon’s whimsical storylines, such as when Keys leaves earth to another planet, distorts the characters and the legacy of the series.

However, this problem managed to be overcome by the producers, since the animation became a big hit in Brazil and other countries. In Brazil, it was first broadcast by SBT and soon after it was also extended to other broadcasters, such as Cartoon Network and Boomerang.
