Roberto Gómez Bolaños (February 21, 1929 - November 28, 2014) was a Mexican screenwriter, actor, comedian, film director, television director, playwright, songwriter, and author. He is widely regarded as one of the most important Spanish-language comedians of the 20th century, known for being the legendary actor of the sitcoms El Chavo del Ocho and El Chapulín Colorado. He is the co-producer of the 2006 animated series El Chavo Animado. Until his death in 2014, the animated series El Chapulín Colorado will be dedicated to his memory.


Ánima Estudios uploaded a homage to the famous co-producer Roberto Gómez Bolaños on its YouTube channel. On this video, three still images feature a barrel with Chavo's hat, the Chapulín Colorado costume, and a mallet used for one of the sitcoms. Before the video ends, a message is shown on the screen, which translates to "Thanks, Chespirito". As the video ends, we see an image of Chespirito with the dedication "Roberto Gómez Bolaños: 1929 - 2014".
