A retrospective on the popular bilingual sitcom featuring a Cuban-American family. The complete pilot episode is included, in addition to clips from subsequent shows. Generation magazine editor Bill Teck is the host.
Pepe Peña is a proud man who emigrated from his native Cuba in the early 1960s. With him came his young son Joe, his wife Juana, and her parents Adela and Antonio; daughter Carmen was born to the couple in their new home: Miami. Pepe has his hands full coping with his Americanized teenagers, newly independent-minded wife, and Spanish-only speaking in-laws. Adding Carmen's wacky girlfriends and lusty next-door neighbor Marta to the mix is almost too much for Pepe to bear! Written by

This was the very first sitcom exclusively for PBS. It was produced and taped in front of a live audience at the studios for Miami's PBS member station WPBT and carried on other PBS stations nationwide. See more »
Actually, this show was intended to help newly-arrived Cubans learn how to speak English. The show was in Englsih and Spanish musch like Cuban-American households. The children on the show spoke mostly English and the parents mostly Spanish. The older characters spoke as much Enmglish as they could and _wanted_ to learn English, but as we all know it is easier to learn a language when you are younger than when you are older. The fun of the show was in the way the older characters tried to deal with the younger characters in a new land and everyone's attempts at becoming American while remaining Cuban.
