Trivia

Due to the custom of Spanish TV channels of airing La gran familia (1962) almost every Christmas and rerunning "Verano Azul"(1981) every two or three summers, Gerardo Garrido claimed one evening in Crónicas marcianas (1997) that you could enjoy the company of the Garrido family twice a year.

Probably best TV show ever.
23 May 2008 | by andresterradaSee all my reviews

This show was aired in Argentina somewhere around 1985 (can't recall the exact year). I totally loved it from the beginning and to the end. Being in Argentina I never got any information on the show other than what you see on the screen. There were no notes in the papers about it (that I remember at least) or anything else, so getting any info on the show was impossible. That was years before the Internet era of course. What a great surprise to find out now that it was a great success in Spain in it's day and that it is still remembered by many. What a great show, how much fun it was and what a great set of values it teached. Aguante Chanquete viejo y peludo, carajo!
