Manny is the cameraman from the Weather News Network who comes with Sam Sparks to Swallow Falls. He is a Guatemalan-American who came to the U.S. "for a better life". He is a supporting character of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs but doesn't speak at all until the near end of the film. Manny is also a major character in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, wherein contrast with the first film he has a speaking role.


Manny is a short man with a thin mustache. He wears a white and blue hat and has dark brown hair.


Manny is commonly very stoic, but talented and smart. Except for a certain condition that shows his other emotions, such as when his camera is broken by Live Corps' Sentinels, and commonly, Tacodile Supreme, his now favorite Foodimal species.


Before coming to America, Manny was a doctor, a pilot and a comedian in his home country of Guatemala, but left it all behind to seek a "better life" in the U.S. This would be a decision that he would later come to regret as he only managed to get a job as a cameraman on a news network.
