Probably best TV show ever.
23 May 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This show was aired in Argentina somewhere around 1985 (can't recall the exact year). I totally loved it from the beginning and to the end. Being in Argentina I never got any information on the show other than what you see on the screen. There were no notes in the papers about it (that I remember at least) or anything else, so getting any info on the show was impossible. That was years before the Internet era of course. What a great surprise to find out now that it was a great success in Spain in it's day and that it is still remembered by many. What a great show, how much fun it was and what a great set of values it teached. Aguante Chanquete viejo y peludo, carajo!
