‘El Chavo del 8’ marked a before and after in the history of Latin American television. The iconic character, created by Roberto Gómez Bolaños in the 20th century, was in charge of accompanying several generations that grew up watching his adventures in the remembered neighborhood.
Why was ‘El Chavo’ an orphan?
Although most knew that Rodolfo Pietro Filiberto Raffaelo Guglielmi was an orphan, as the ‘chavito’ was actually called, very few know the hard story behind that situation.

As it has been known, “Chavo” never met his father. Of his mother, Roberto Gómez Bolaños once said, he barely had memories. The woman was the head of the family and she used to leave the little one in a nursery while she worked. However, when picking him up, according to legend, he was so tired that many times he didn’t realize the child was being given to him and ‘Chavo’ spent the night in the nursery.
As the months went by, in one of those ‘oversights’, the woman did not appear in the nursery again. El ‘Chavo’ went to an orphanage.

At the orphanage, no family wanted to adopt him. In fact, it is said that the woman in charge of the place mistreated him mercilessly. That was precisely why he decided to leave there and ended up in the neighborhood where he spent most of his time in his barrel. There he forged his great history.
