"El Chapulin Colorado" was the starring character in the self-titled Mexican television series that ran for eight seasons from 1972 to 1981, and still airs today in the U.S. and many Latin American countries. The character, a fearful and clumsy superhero created and played by legendary Mexican comedian Roberto Gomez Bolanos, remains to this day one of the most popular and beloved characters among Spanish-speaking audiences.
The show's success is largely due to the fact that it embodies many aspects of Latin and Mexican culture, while making a critique on the unrealistic image of superheroes. From the name of the show itself, to the slang and proverbs, Gomez Bolanos made an effort to reflect Latin culture.
"El Chapulin Colorado" was conceived as the opposite of traditional American superhero – the character is a poor, fearful and clumsy man that in the end always overcomes his fears to defeat his enemies.
A cult classic for many generations, the red and yellow heart symbol on "El Chapulin Colorado's" costume is an icon of Hispanic culture. His catchphrases, including lines such as "Siganme los buenos!" ("Good guys, follow me!") and "Se aprovechan de mi nobleza" ("They take advantage of my nobility"), are recognizable to millions of Latinos who fondly remember this charming character.
