A good and mature family series
16 August 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1979 and probably grew up watching this series many times since I watched Spanish TV while living in North Africa during 18 years. This is a classical series of TVE 1 (the Spanish television). It is worth seeing by children and youngsters to discover a pure vision of love, friendship and nice adventures. But adults will also enjoy seeing it. Indeed, even if the main protagonists are children or teenagers, very serious topics are evocated, in particular the death, with Chanquete'death at the end of the series... I remember how sad I felt when seeing the scene of the burial... But growing is also realizing that death exists... So we must see it. Moreover, it is now available in DVD...
