Chico and the Man (1974–1978)
- Summaries (3)
The relationship between a cranky old mechanic and a twentysomething Chicano.
Energetic Chico wants to form a partnership with cynical Ed Brown in the old man's garage. His efforts bring in customers and the crabby Ed softens toward Chico. After the actor who played him committed suicide, Chico was replaced by 12-year-old Raul.
Ed Brown was a cantankerous old widower who owned and operated a small filling station in Los Angeles. He hired a fast-talking, cheery young Chicano, Chico Rodriguez, to help him run the place. Since Chico also lived in the garage, the two were always together, and when they weren't bickering between themselves, they came to a greater understanding of each other's generation and culture. They even learned to love each other. When Chico left Ed to start his own business (in actuality, actor Freddie Prinze committed suicide), Ed discovered a new "Chico"-a 12-year-old boy named Raul--and invited him to move in.
