The best program....
23 January 2007 | by fpmarzSee 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.
