Dulce Ilusion (1993) was a Venezuelan telenovela that was produced by and seen on Venezuela's Radio Caracas Television. It was written by Mariela Romero. This telenovela lasted between 198 and 92 episodes and was distributed internationally by RCTV International. This was the first telenovela to use Venezuelan cartoons with real people, in fact, its the only one in the history of Venezuelan soap operas, and the great success of this RCTVs material is partly due to the big innovation of the cartoons. The animated characters were developed by the legendary animator Felix Nakamura and his team.


A modern-day Cinderella meet her young Prince Charming in a unique series that weaves romance, dreams, fantasy, and evil... all in one unprecedented telenovela: Dulce Ilusion (Sweet Dream). The story begins in the midst of the tropics... where nature, in all its majesty, create and aura of wonder. Dulce Maria is born there - and heiress to her parent's lands and vast fortune. Through a twist of fate, however, her ruthless governess Zarina robs her of her rightful inheritance and raises Dulce Maria as a servant in her own home, convincing her that she had been born a penniless orphan. Despite her stepmother's cruelty, Dulce Maria grows to become a young woman full of optimism and innocence. Her genuine nature wins the hearts of many of the townspeople, specially the local children. Among these is Caraotica, an unforgettable boy with strange powers; in reality, Caraotica is an angel who inadvertently "fell" into the convent's backyard while on a mission from heaven to Villa del Mar. Sor Ada, the nun who educated Dulce Maria, becomes her confidante and greatest source of moral support. In her youth, Sor Ada had experienced everything from hunting tigers in the wild to singing classic love ballads, and thus instills in Dulce Maria a pronounced idealism and zest for life. It's no wonder, then, that Dulce Maria is regarded as a dreamer... a young girl who shares her dreams and adventures with imaginary characters: a lively lizard named Homero, symbol of emotion; the toucan Prometeo symbol of reason; and the coquettish canary Alicia Josefina, symbol of love. One day, Dulce Maria is reunited with her childhood sweetheart Juan Francisco, a recently graduated military cadet. This marks the beginning of a passionate love story; one which will be threatened by envy, jealousy, and blind ambition. However, with the help of Jacques Delfin, a mysterious and eccentric man who lives on a yacht off the coast of Villa del Mar, Dulce Maria and Juan Francisco will finally unravel the secret of her birthright and find true love.
