Characters: El Chavo del ocho

El Chavo

Federico aka Quico

  • Always Someone Better: Tries very hard to be this to Chavo.
  • Attention Whore
  • Book Dumb
  • Catch Phrase
    • No me simpatizas (I don't like you).
    • Chusma, chusma, prttt. (Riffraff, riffraff, prttt).
  • Delayed Reaction: He's often a tad slow to react to insults.
  • Disappeared Dad: He explains in the tie-in book that his father, Federico, was a sea captain who went down with his ship, which is implied in the series when his father makes an appearance in a flashback in one episode (also played by Carlos Villagrán).
  • The Ditz
  • First Name Ultimatum: If Florinda calls him "Federico", it's because she's PISSED at him.
  • Freudian Slip: Whenever he slips and calls Profesor Jirafales "Daddy".
  • Improbable Weapon User: He would use his large bouncy ball to hit people over the head. It's especially noteworthy in the episode where the kids think the vecindad is haunted and they grab things to defend themselves from the ghost. While Chavo uses a broom and Chilindrina uses a frying pan, Quico used his rubber ball. Ironically enough, it seemed to actually hurt most of the time.
