Chavo del Ocho Pinata

Have you heard the name Roberto Gómez Bolaños? How about "Chespirito?" If you have not, it's a safe bet you didn't grow up in Mexico, South America or Spain, because Chespirito is Mexico's greatest children's TV star. His beloved characters, among them "el Chavo del Ocho" ("the kid from number 8") and "El chapulin colorado" ("the red grasshopper") have been on Spanish-speaking TV for decades and are among the most-watched TV shows anywhere, anytime. In Mexico, it is estimated that at times more than half of all the TV's in the nation were tuned in to Chespirito's shows when they aired! Learn more about one of Mexico's greatest entertainers!
