Thanks for the fun and laughter, Chespirito!
7 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was little, I remember seeing El Chavo, El Chapulin Colorado, and of course, Chespirito with my grandpa. Now that I'm older, I can't imagine how Spanish TV will be without these shows. I'm inspired by Roberto Gomez Bolanos and how he created such memorable characters. I give credit to the actors in the shows who brought the characters to life. Don Ramon, played by the late Ramon Valdez, lit up the shows. I also like Quico, played by Carlos Villagran, who completed the show by his humor. El Chavo always made me laugh and made me happy. In my opinion, it's the funniest Spanish show ever. I hope they show El Chavo for many years to come.
