A classic!
23 January 2003 | by daria84See all my reviews

This tv show is definitely a classic. My parents saw this when they were my age, and I grew up watching "El Chavo" and of course "El Chapulin Colorado".

"El Chapulin Colorado" is a hero who appears every time somebody says "Oh! now who would be able to help me?". It is really funny, he is not the classical super hero (smart, beefy, handsome and very brave) he is rather a comic hero with very good intentions, but a little coward sometimes. The situations where he is involved are very funny, and he will always get away with is even if it is by accident.

If you like "Chespirito" and all his work (which is very good by the way) and you like comedy where you don't have to think over and over to get the joke, you will love this show!
