He's every Latino's favorite superhero! Created and portrayed by the late Roberto Gómez Bolaños, the popular Mexican comedy show aired throughout the '70s and parodied superhero shows. It was and still is iconic.
In celebration of this legendary show and their revamped dollar menu, McDonald's is coming full force with new limited-edition Chapulin Colorado-themed items.
His son Roberto Gómez Fernandez talked to VIX and gave us all the scoop:
VIX: How was this collaboration between McDonald's and Chapulin Colorado born?
RGF: I'm very excited to be a part of this new adventure and collaboration. I love McDonald's compromise to cater to the Hispanic market with a character that is loved by the community. This is the first time they do something like this with a Latino cartoon and it's a perfect fit.
VIX: Out of all the memorable characters that your dad portrayed, including El Chavo del 8, why El Chapulin Colorado for this collab?
RGF:Chapulin has all of the most energetic characteristics of my father. Also because he was my dad's personal character to portray. It just made a lot of sense.
VIX: What limited-edition items can foodies expect?
RGF: There are going to be a lot of games, including La Loteria, which is like the Mexican version of Bingo, and a set of cards.
VIX: How can we get a hold of these games? Are they in a happy meal?
RGF:For now, the limited-edition games are only available in Houston, Texas. It's part of the local $1, $2, $3 menu, but hopefully, it will be made available at McDonald's around the states.
VIX: As his son, how does it feel knowing that your dad's legacy continues in awesome collaborations like this one?
RGF: It's a big responsibility. All of these decisions were made by my father, but now the responsibility is divided. I know he would be very proud to know that his legacy lives on.
