¡No contaron con su astucia!

The star of the Mexican comedy shows “El Chavo del Ocho” and “El Chapulín Colorado” will get a museum celebrating his life and work in June 2013, reports Notimex -- complete with one of the barrels El Chavo once called home.

The monument to the work of Chespirito, the stage name of comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños, will be designed as a replica of the Chavo del Ocho’s neighborhood. Visitors will be able to see the shows’ original costumes, view the scripts, and walk through the houses of characters like Don Ramón, Quico and Doña Florinda.

The Chespirito museum will be located in Mexico City, though organizers still haven’t picked an official site. The public will have free access to the museum.

“The project began as something small and, thanks to the public support, kept growing,” Chespirito Group director Luis Jorge Arnau Ávila told Notimex. »
