“Mexican writer and actor Roberto Gómez Bolaños, who is more popularly known around the world as Chespirito, had passed away at the age of 85. The actor had been having health problems since April, and his family has been aware for some time of his ailing health. Chespirito died on Friday November 28th from a heart attack, as was reported by Lolita Ayala live during her news show. He was living in Cancún. 

The actor is famous for his characters on "El Chavo del 8,” “El Chapulín Colorado,” and other shows. Born in Mexico City in 1929, Gomez Bolaños was writing scripts and screenplays in his early twenties, despite studying for being an engineer. The all-rounded artist also composed songs and scripts for radio shows. It was in the 1960’s, when the two most popular Mexican television shows on air were written by Gomez Bolaños, that he earned the nickname Chespirito from director Agustín P. Delgado. The nickname, which he would later be recognized by around the world, translates to "Shakespearito” or “Little Shakespeare.”

 "The Hispanic market has never had such a beloved celebrity like Roberto Gomez Bolanos and perhaps there will never be one like him,“ said Maca Rotter, executive director of Televisa Consumer Products. "He has been a Mexican icon for past and future generations, considering that his heritage is more alive than ever.” “

Hasta Que Nos Volvamos A Ver Chespirito! // artwork by Eduardo Sanabria - EDO (2014)

Si creciste en mi lado del mundo probablemente sabes quien es Roberto Gomez Bolaños, el hombre mejor conocido como “Chespirito” (un diminutivo de “Shakespeare” que se gano como apodo por ser un escritor prolífico de gran imaginación) falleció el día de ayer a los 85 años dejando un vació en el corazón de al menos 3 generaciones de latinoamericanos que crecimos viendo sus ocurrencias en cada programa con cada uno de los personajes que invento, siendo los mas populares El Chavo (un niño huérfano que vive en una vecindad de gente humilde) y El Chapulin Colorado (un superheroe latinoamericano que usualmente creaba mas problemas de los que resolvía).

El humor de Roberto Gomez Bolaños y la forma en la que concibió cada uno de sus personajes le da un carácter atemporal a su trabajo, con una formula sencilla que entretuvo tanto a grandes como a chicos y que dejo lecciones de valores y responsabilidad en cada emisión. Su genio sin paralelo le permitió ser una de las figuras mas respetadas y reconocidas en latinoamerica a pesar de haber pasado ante las cámaras por ultima vez hace 22 años.

El día de hoy quise dedicar este post en mi lengua materna a todos mis seguidores latinoamericanos como una despedida al genio de Roberto Gomez Bolaños de la mano del ilustrador Venezolano Eduardo Sanabria. Se te extrañara increíblemente Chespirito! Hasta que nos volvamos a ver!
