The original producer and director of Chespirito’s 1970s television shows El Chavo de Ocho and El Chapulin Colorado, Enrique Segoviano, was born in the Dominican Republic to Spanish parents and raised in Mexico. 

After El Chapulin, Segoviano went on to produce and/or direct a number of successful shows for Televisa including Anabel (1988), Odisea burbujas (1979), Nosotros los Pobres (1973), Hola México!!! (1984), 100 mexicanos dijeron (2001) and Todo el mundo cree que sabe (2009) among many others. 

Pa’lante to Enrique Segoviano for producing and directing one of the most famous comedies in Latin America most of us have grown to watch or learned of through our parents.

The first documented use of chocolate came when in 2007 archaeologists reported finding evidence of cacao use at a site in Puerto Escondido, Honduras dating from about 1100 to 1400 BC. When the Aztecs gained control they adop

ted chocolate into their culture for sacred offerings. Xocóatl, as the Aztecs called it, meaning “bitter water,” was a drink “made from ground cacao beans boiled in water, flavored with vanilla and other tropical spices, and chilled with bits of snow from nearby mountain tops.” Europeans adapted chocolate after Montezuma introduced it to the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés in the 16th century.
