Great show,
27 February 2002 | by (Paraguay) – See all my reviews

El Chavo del 8 is a an almost perfect tv comic show. It could make you laugh and cry, which is for me a real good combination. My grandparents know and enjoy the show, my parents also do, I love it, and my neighbor of 3 years old won't stop laughing when he watches it. This might just give you a perspective of how long-lasting it's charming is. El chavo, kiko, don ramón, mr. barriga, and everybody else conform a superb cast, and they have made laugh millions for nearly thirty years. No other tv show has had such a great impact in Latin America than El Chavo, and that's easy to understand if you know it. My favorite character is Don Ramón, played wonderfully by Ramon Valdez, but this doesn't make the others mediocre, 'cause they're all more than excellent. Watch it pal, if you have the chance, you won't regret it.
