how fan of “The guy from 8” are you? And it is that, with one hand on the heart, it is impossible not to have a weakness for one of the most important children’s programs in the history of Latin television. And it even sounds unbelievable to listen to someone trying to convince us that they never watched an episode or laughed at any of the jokes or pranks of the children in the Neighborhood.
However, there are things that only a true fan (or a true fan) can answer about “The guy from 8” and its characters. Like, for example, that Jaimito -the postman- was from Tangamandapio; that Chilindrina’s aunts were from Guanajuato or that the fresh waters that Chavo sold in the patio were from Jamaica, Limón and Tamarindo. And, speaking of those questions, do you know where El Chavo lived? If you said or thought: “Well, in the barrel!”, we have to tell you that this answer is wrong.
Where did “El Chavo del 8” live and that it was not the barrel
The characters, anecdotes and antics of the characters of “El Chavo del 8” will always live in our hearts. And they will not even be erased by that sad legal battle between the heirs of Chespirito and Televisa that removed the episodes from television. Currently, YouTube and social networks are an excellent place to review each chapter. And keep laughing out loud.
And if little known data of “The guy from 8” We spoke, one of the most striking has to do with the place where the boy played by Chespirito lived, according to the plot of the series. Although most of the episodes took place in the central patio of La Vecindad, where the main apartments were located and the barrel where Chavo spent most of his days, there was also a second patio. It was next to the first and is where a large fountain stood out (to which one of its characters always fell).
However, a detail that few know is that -also- there was a third patio. It is seen in the episode “The guy from 8” where Don Ramón is working with plaster to fix some details of La Vecindad. Not only is the scene of these repairs that third patio, but apartment 8 is located there. And Chavo himself admits that he actually lives in that apartment (8), and that is why he has that nickname.
