Why did he started shows for kids? He started to make shows because he wanted to make a children's comedy show. Another thing is that he was one of the Mexican comedians of the 20th century. He made lots of show with other actors.
His name was Roberto Gomez Bolanos. He was born on February 21, 1929, Mexico City, Mexico. His father was a painter and a cartoonist. His mother was a bilingual secretary.

Chispirito which is a nikname for Roberto. He published a book called "Diary From a Kid from Number 8" and also poems. His shows were like a Little Shakespeare.

He inspired kids and in the TV people dresses like him in the show and people of Mexico started to make shows like his. Also they imitated his voice and the way when he got mad and excited. When the people went to his funeral they wore a shirt that had a heart which is his superhero logo. The heart was a symbol for Roberto Gomez Bolanos.
