“With a rich history of successfully bringing popular entertainment properties to life and strong nationwide distribution at retail, JAKKS was the right licensing partner to enlist as we bring ‘El Chavo Animado’ to the ever-growing population of Hispanic youth,” said Francisco Arenas, Vice President Consumer Products, Univision Communications Inc. “The new ‘El Chavo’ product line will include some of the most innovative and popular toys of today while connecting Hispanic consumers with their heritage.”

The most-watched television sitcom in Mexican history, “El Chavo” was made famous by comic Roberto Gómez Bolaños over four decades ago. The show has delighted audiences across all of Latin America, Spain and the U.S. for over 25 years – reaching more than 350 million viewers worldwide. Showcasing one of the most adored characters in Spanish-language television, “El Chavo Animado” on Univision will bring the nostalgia and popularity of the original series to a new generation.

“We are excited to finally bring ‘El Chavo’ to every home in the United States,” said Maca Rotter, executive director, Televisa Consumer Products, the entity which holds the rights for “El Chavo” in Mexico. “Transmitting the excitement and personality of this beloved character to every child is our goal.”
