Mysterious Manuel from Woolworth's circa 1973

Here are two photos of my childhood Manuel doll, bought at a Woolworths store in the 1970s. Manuel is roughly the size of Mattel Steve Sunshine of the Sunshine Family. Like Stephanie Sunshine, Manuel's wife had blonde rooted hair and there was a baby, too. Alas, only Manuel remains. He is one of my first Hispanic dolls.

Does anyone recognize him?
