Anyone who grew up in Latin America knows Roberto Gomez Bolaños. They don’t know him personally, but he was, and still is, in the homes of millions of people everyday.

Bolaños, better known as Chespirito, is one of Latin America’s biggest television stars. His two TV shows, El Chavo del Ocho and El Chapulin Colorado were huge hits.

Chespirito died at his home in Cancun, Mexico this past November at the age of 85.
