Almost six years after Roberto Goméz Bolaños passed away, they stopped broadcasting all his creations around the world without specifying the reason, this despite the fact that they remained valid in the taste of the public.
A surprising tweet from Roberto Gómez Fernández, son of the famous creator, confirmed that works like ‘El Chavo del Ocho’, ‘El Chapulín Colorado‘and’ Chepirito ‘would cease to be seen on the screens in every corner of the globe without explaining why, and he only hoped that soon there will be an agreement to return to normality.
Although saddened by the decision, my family and I hope that Chespirito will soon be on the screens of the world. We will continue to insist, and I am sure we will succeed.

It would have to do with intellectual rights
In South America, an area in which the entire universe of Gómez Bolaños is a phenomenon, the blackout had been known for hours before, because the Brazilian television station SBT had issued a statement explaining the following:
“A problem pending to be solved with the holder of stories rights. The exhibition of the series ‘El Chavo del 8’, ‘El Chapulín Colorado’ and ‘Chespirito’ would be guaranteed until July 31, 2020, with the possibility of renewal between the parties, which verbally it had been confirmed. However, the denial regarding the agreement with the group that owns the stories’ intellectual rights came within days of the end of the contract. ”
Doña Florinda rebuked Televisa
Once the determination is known, Florinda Meza, actress and ex-partner of Robeto Gómez Bolaños, regretted the decision, in addition to sent a dart to Televisa, to which he pointed out that it helped him earn millions of dollars and today he turns his back on him.
