Chiquilladas was a Mexican television program made for children, in which you could see musicals, parodies and sketches of soap operas, programs and personalities of that time. Produced by Televisa, it was on the air from 1982 to 1993 with characters such as “Chiquidrácula”, “Pituka y Petaka”, “Carlinflas”, “El Maguito Rodi”, “la Bizcoteka del Aire” and parodies of “Popeye”, “Jacobo Zabludovsky, “So-and-so the Little Orphan”, etc.
The original project began as children's sketches within the variety programs "Alegrías de Mediodía" and "Sábados Efectivos", where Carlos Espejel, Ginny Hoffman, Raúl Ortiz (Chuchito), Usi Velasco and his brother César Velasco, Claudia Ivette Castañeda, Lucero, Alejandro Escajadillo (now Aleks Syntek), Rodolfo Mercado (magician Rody) and his brother Rodrigo Mercado, as well as the sisters Norma Pérez (Pituka) and Rosaura Pérez (Petaka) were the protagonists.
A year later, due to the success of these skits, which were very funny not only to children but also to adults, a pilot program was made in which all these children participated. The pilot was released on a Saturday in 1982 at 8 p.m. and it was such a success that in less than a month, the definitive program premiered on the comedy bar of Channel 2 of Televisa.
