Quico (also known as Kiko) is a character from the Mexican series El Chavo del Ocho, played by Carlos Villagrán during the years 1972 to 1978, when he left the cast. He is one of the main characters in both the original live-Action series and the 2006 cartoon. He is a spoiled rich boy, the son of a deceased sailor and a rude and proud lady who lives in a middle-class village and usually acts as the main antagonist for children (mainly El Chavo).

Why He Sucks

  1. Quico often bullies El Chavo and La Chilindrina, treating them like people who are poor and inferior to him and often wanting to cause envy with expensive toys and foods that are always bought by his mother, Doña Florinda.
  2. Whenever El Chavo appears playing with a simple and cheap toy (usually made by himself) Quico always appears showing off a bigger, better and more expensive toy for El Chavo, in order not only to want to cause envy in El Chavo, but also to make fun of his poverty.
  3. He is selfish and always forbids other children to play with his toys.
  4. He is extremely spoiled by his mother and always screams calling for her when someone tries to get revenge by hitting him or giving him a punishment.
  5. He is the main culprit for making his mother often accuse and slap Don Ramón, because whenever he calls his mother to defend him he never says who was to blame.
    1. Whenever Doña Florinda slaps Don Ramón, Quico finishes the sequence by pushing Don Ramón with a punch, calling him of riffraff and showing his tongue to him, even when he knows that Don Ramón was not to blame for what happened.
  6. His voice can sometimes be very annoying, as he often screams in his tantrums, usually doing this in the ears of other characters.
  7. In the episode in which Professor Jirafales wants to seek help to get back to his relationship with Doña Florinda, Quico refuses to help him unless Jirafales gives him the square ball he had promised to give him as a gift.
  8. Quico is also often seen fighting with other children, not only El Chavo, but also Ñoño and Godinez as mentioned in two episodes.
  9. His actor was one of the responsible for the departure of Ramón Valdés (the interpreter of Don Ramón) in 1982 from the cast of the series inviting him to work with him, which resulted in the decline in quality of El Chavo del Ocho in the 80s.
  10. During the 1980s after Carlos Villagrán left the cast of El Chavo del Ocho he created several spin-off series starring Quico (renamed as Kiko), however, all these series were failures and ended up being forgotten.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Quico sometimes proves to be a good friend to El Chavo and La Chilindrina in some episodes.
  2. He is one of the most memorable and loved characters among El Chavo del Ocho fans, being as popular as El Chavo, Don Ramón and La Chilindrina.
  3. Many of his lines and moments are memorable, many of the fans even consider Quico funnier than El Chavo, besides being frequently used in internet memes in latin america.
  4. The moments when he receives karma are satisfactory, especially when he is punished by El Chavo.
  5. His design is also considered iconic, so much so that the character was also responsible for popularizing large toy balls.
  6. His absence in the episodes after 1978 was one of the main reasons for the decline in the quality of the episodes in the 1980s, proving that without him the series was not be as great as it used to be with him in the cast.
  7. His original version of the live-action series is more enjoyable than his version of the cartoon.
  8. In the spin-off series, Quico at least has a more acceptable behavior, not behaving like a selfish and spoiled boy.
