User Reviews

The most simple-made comedy show ever.
8 September 2001 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) – See all my reviews

"El Chavo" and "El Chapulín Colorado" are the best comedy series ever made for TV that don't appeal to jokes based on sex appealing. All the funny lines are based on the most simple possible types of making fun of somebody, such as the stupidity and innocence of children or from the non-working state of a guy who is always in trouble.

Chavo and Chapulín are a must for any person who want to see how its possible to make comedy shows using life simplicity based ideas and low money for running the program.

Being from different styles of comedy, even because each one was made on a difference of about 2 decades, Chavo & Chapulin might lead the comedy ranking on the side of Seinfeld, the most intelligent comedy show of the 90's.
