El Chapulín Colorado (Spanish: The Red Grasshopper) is a television series, created and played by Roberto Gómez Bolaños, also known as Chespirito, a successful Mexican comedian and TV show producer, which parodied superhero shows. It was first aired in Mexico by the Televisa network in 1970, but then was aired across Latin America and Spain until 1981, alongside sister production El Chavo del Ocho, which shared the same cast of actors. Both shows are incredibly enduring as they still are constantly re-run, and have won back some of their popularity in several countries such as Colombia, where it has aired in competition with The Simpsons (which has a character based on him). The name translates literally in English as "The Red Grasshopper" (the word chapulín is of Nahuatl or Aztec origin, and a current part of Mexican Spanish).El Chapulín featuring Roberto Gómez Bolaños and Ramón Valdés has one or more episodes streaming with subscription on Netflix. It's an action & adventure and comedy show with 237 episodes over 7 seasons. El Chapulín is no longer running and has no plans to air new episodes or seasons. It has a high IMDb audience rating of 8.5 (2,850 votes).
