Trivia

Brazilian channel SBT, which has shown the series since 1984, broadcast some unaired episodes in 2014. The content had to be voiced by different voice actors, partly because Marcelo Gastaldi passed away in 1995. Carlos Seidl and Nelson Machado were replaced because they could not agree on terms with SBT. See more »

Goofs

In one class the teacher shows a scorpion, but in the continuing episode its different than the last scorpion shown. See more »

The best program....
23 January 2007 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is the true family program. It's great... I watch Chavo since i had 4 years old and i've been watched all of the episodes, but, when i watch it again, i enjoy it more and more!!!! this is a fabulous program!!!! The E! Entertainment channel made a program talking about the 10 best TV series, but they had committed a mistake because they didn't put Chavo between the 10 best TV series of the history and Chavo is the best TV series of the history, it's better then friends..... My parent has watched when they was children, i watch it now and with certainly my kids will watch it and they will love it too....with certainly.
