As a Brazilian and aware that "Os trapalhões" was part of every Brazilian's childhood, I would like to make a few comments on the inaccurate information and review given by IMDb concerning this series.
First of all, IMDb makes a mistake when it lists the 1965 series cast. "Os adoráveis trapalhões" (that's the correct name) had the actors Wanderley Cardoso, Ivon Cury, Ted Boy Marino and Renato Aragão forming a group of four guys who were always involved in funny and/or dangerous situations. Each of them had an specific personality trait: Cardoso was Mr "prince charming", Cury, the diplomatic one, Marino was good at heart but also amusingly bad-tempered, and Mr Aragão was the funny guy. Many other actors, actresses and singers made guest appearances in their weekly program, which was broadcast by Excelsior TV and lasted until 1966.
It was only in 1974 on Tupi TV, and later on, in 1976, on Globo TV, that the group had its formation changed and became an immediate hit all over Brazil. Didi (Renato Aragão), Dedé (Manfried Sant'anna), Mussum, (Antônio Carlos Bernardes Gomes) and Zacarias (Mauro Faccio Gonçalves) portrayed the four funny guys, using the same formula of the extinct "Os adoráveis trapalhões".
I would not describe the sketches as "bizarre". It does not do justice to these four artists' performance and to their huge contribution to the Brazilian film and TV industry. Not to mention that the specific term is rather disrespectful.
One must admit that some of the sketches that composed the one-hour program were extremely naïve and lacked the necessary visual aids, such as scenario and guest actors' performances. But the essence of these men's work is what remains intact and eternal in Brazilians' hearts. Nowadays children might find it uninteresting, but this is not about now, this is about a past when Brazilian TV was starting to grow.
