During the first year, Chico used the catch phrase "That's not my job", which Freddie Prinze had used in his stand up act. Some people complained this perpetuated the image of the lazy Hispanic, so he switched to the catchphrase "Looking Good". See more »

The incredible bond between the cast on 'Chico', ESPECIALLY that of Jack Albertson & Freddy Prinze, was supernatural.
Chico and the man was the essence of my TV watching childhood. The mid 1970s were my developmental years, and I like to think that this timeless sitcom was and is a sentimental and forever memorable fixture in my growing years and even now. In the mid seventies, Friday night was a line up for my 'obsessions'. Sitcoms and police shows and the cast on 'Chico and the man' I felt to be an extension of my family. The comedy was quick and strong and the duo of Albertson & Prinze was a special chemistry, so unbelievable and loving, I feel a bond like that one might never be accomplished again. All of these comical plots always centered around some sort of life lesson always 'giftwrapped' in friendship and caring. Freddy & Jack & the others, looking down on myself and all of the 'Chico' lovers, can only nod in absolute agreement(like that little mounted dog, on his back dash, with the spring form neck and head that would bob up & down.
