The Chespirito Google Doodle is colorful and bright.
The Google Doodle page also shared a description of his life and his career. "Robert Gomez Bolaños was born on this day in 1929 in Mexico City. After studying engineering, he quickly shifted focus to one of his many other passions--writing--and found early success contributing to some of Mexico's highest-rated television and radio programs," it read. "As a testament to his growing reputation and prolific output, he earned the endearing nickname 'Chespirito,' or 'Little Shakespeare,' which he embraced for the rest of his life."
Google paid tribute in such a beautiful way.
Chespirito is a huge figure not only in Mexico but in all of Latin America. His shows brought joy to families all over the world, and he continues to do so with the many characters and projects he left behind. "One of Chespirito's first big breaks came in 1970 when he launched his own self-titled, hour-long comedy sketch show. Stepping in front of the camera, Chespirito brought to life two of his most timeless characters: El Chapulín Colorado (The Crimson Grasshopper), a satirical superhero, and El Chavo del Ocho (The Boy From No. Eight.), a quirky 8-year old orphan, both of which went on to earn their own shows," Google described. "For more than 40 years, Chespirito masterminded the creation of hundreds of episodes of television, in addition to movies and plays, capturing the hearts of millions with his signature style of clean and hopeful humor."
