That’s because they’re characters from the HuevoCartoon universe.

QUIZ: Which HuevoCartoon Character Are You?

Yep, they’re the same HuevoCartoons that blew up years ago on the Internet. There was Poeta Huevos:

A few rhymes and lots of wine would lead these lyricists to proclaim, “QUE HERMOSA HUEVA.”

And Los Huevos Rancheros, Chema and Chava.

So much tequila… and SO much sexual tension.

As their popularity grew, new huevos were hatched. Like el Huevo Filósofo…

Looks like that candle isn’t the only thing el Huevo Filósofo is lighting up.

And Los Súper Huevos.

A group of heroes who spend more time fighting each other than battling crime.

In the appropriately titled animated film Una Película de Huevos.

In Una Película de Huevos, we meet Toto, an egg that doesn’t want to become someone’s breakfast.

Toto hatches and becomes a chick in a sequel called Otra Pelicula de Huevos y Un Pollo.

Yes, that’s the same Toto from Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos.

So now you know the answer to that age-old question. The egg definitely came before the chicken.
