'''''El Chavo del Ocho''''' (1973-1975), later known as just '''''El Chavo''''' (1975-1980), is a Mexican sitcom based on characters by comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños, best known as "Chespirito" (a nickname meaning "Little Shakespeare"). It focuses on the titular character "El Chavo," an orphan 8-year old child whose life is split between pestering his adult neighbors and getting in trouble with the other kids on the ''vecindad''. The show has experimented public acclaim in Latin America, with a notably large portion of its fanbase being comprised of viewers in Brazil.
  
'''''El Chavo del Ocho''''' is one of the most famous Mexican sitcoms ever, gathering legions of fans all over Latin America and crossing generations, remaining popular even after 40 years since its original airing.

From the nearly 280 episodes first broadcast between February 1973 and January 1980, 39 are absent from Televisa's current distribution package. It's impossible to pinpoint the exact moment when these episodes were shelved, but it's believed that some - if not all - were still distributed until the late 80's, as evidenced by a pack sent to Brazilian network SBT in 1987, which included several now discontinued episodes. Unsurprisingly, many episodes from ''El Chavo del Ocho's'' sister series [[El Chapulín Colorado (partially lost Mexican sitcom TV series; 1973-1979)|''El Chapulín Colorado'']] suffered the same fate.
First conceived in 1972 by Roberto Gómez Bolaños (popularly known as "Chespirito" - a nickname that means "Little Shakespeare"), "El Chavo" is a homeless, orphaned child who overcomes the difficulties of being poor (starvation being a recurrent theme explored in the series) as they fuel his will of living and having fun with his neighbors.
 
  
From the more than 300 episodes that aired between February 1973 and January 1980, about 39 are absent from Televisa's current distribution pack. It's impossible to pinpoint the exact moment where these episodes were cut, but it's believed that some - if not all - were still distributed until the late 80's, as evidenced by a pack sent to Brazilian network SBT in 1987, which included several now discontinued episodes. Unsurprisingly, many episodes from ''El Chavo del Ocho'''s sister series [[El Chapulín Colorado (Partially lost episodes of Mexican sitcom TV series; 1973-1979)|''El Chapulín Colorado'']] suffered the same fate.

==Reasons and Fan Theories==
 +
One of the biggest obstacles to the finding of reasons behind the removal of these episodes is that official, reliable information by Televisa is virtually non-existent. The group refuses to acknowledge the existence of the missing episodes, stating to customers that their current pack is composed by every episode ever produced, even though fans, through several external sources, had already debunked their speech.
  
==Reasons Behind the Removal==
+
Two episodes of Chespirito's standalone works – ''El Chavo del Ocho''<nowiki>'s</nowiki> "El robachicos" and ''El Chapulín Colorado''<nowiki>'s</nowiki> "Las bromas del tío Ramón", both from 1973 – are believed to have once being taken out of the regular distro package (regaining their 'common' status after a new package was issued by Televisa in 2006) due to both were previously out of rotation by Costa Rican network Repretel. Although there is no confirmation of their absence being reflected in other countries' airings at the time, this is often considered a precedent for possible episode recoveries by Televisa.

Florinda Meza, a prominent cast member and widow of Chespirito, has already expressed interest in the 'disappearance' of the episodes, contacting Televisa on occasions to report airings of discontinued episodes in foreign countries, in hopes of getting them back to distribution. Televisa, however, couldn't have cared less.

It's to be noted, however, that two once discontinued episodes - ''El Chavo del Ocho''<nowiki>'s</nowiki> "El robachicos" and ''El Chapulín Colorado''<nowiki>'s</nowiki> "Las bromas del tío Ramón", both from 1973 - have regained their 'common' status after a new package was issued by Televisa in 2006 with no fanfare. The reason behind their removal is unknown, just like the reason behind their comeback.

In the face of a lack of official info, there are many rumours and theories about the actual reason behind the removal of these episodes. These include:
 
 
In front of the lack of official info, there are many rumors about the actual reason behind the removal of these episodes. These include:
 
  
 
*'''Damaged tapes''': the most accepted reason, where poor conservation of the master tapes eventually caused video and/or audio damage. This is evidenced by the massive cuts done to the currently distributed episodes, as well as scene replacements done to hide video imperfections.

*'''Erased tapes''': it's theorized that many early episodes from Chespirito's works had their master tapes wiped to make room for newer shows or even other episodes, as Televisa executives did not expect that there would be demand for such material decades later. This theory was supported by cast member Rubén Aguirre during an interview for Brazilian fan-site Fórum Chaves.

*'''Censorship''': Televisa executives or Chespirito's relatives picked by hand episodes that shouldn't be distributed. For example, in the 1976 episode "Festival de la Buena Vecindad - parte 2", the first song sung by the kids was apparently registered by Carlos Villagrán after his departure from the cast, which possibly caused the cancellation of the episode's distribution due to internal conflicts between Chespirito and Villagrán. This theory is also supported by the fact that all versions of Chapulín Colorado's "La bella durmiente era un señor muy feo - parte 1", including a remake from the 80's ''Chespirito'' era, are out of the current distribution package.

*'''Earthquake''': an earthquake hit Mexico in 1985, affecting Televisa. Although the only archive that was affected was the sports archive, some people, mostly misinformed, still believe that this is a plausible reason for the apparent loss of episodes. This is proven untrue by the aforementioned pack sent to SBT in 1987.

*'''Natural disasters''': a violent earthquake hit Mexico City in 1985, causing severe damage to the region and, among numerous casualties, affecting Televisa's main station. Although the only archive that was reportedly affected was the sports archive, some people, mostly misinformed, still believe that this is a plausible reason for the apparent loss of episodes. This is proven untrue by the aforementioned pack sent to SBT around 1987.

El Chavo Los Novilleros.png

"Los novilleros," one of the show's undistributed episodes.

Status: Partially Lost

El Chavo del Ocho (1973-1975), later known as just El Chavo (1975-1980), is a Mexican sitcom based on characters by comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños, best known as "Chespirito" (a nickname meaning "Little Shakespeare"). It focuses on the titular character "El Chavo," an orphan 8-year old child whose life is split between pestering his adult neighbors and getting in trouble with the other kids on the vecindad. The show has experimented public acclaim in Latin America, with a notably large portion of its fanbase being comprised of viewers in Brazil.

From the nearly 280 episodes first broadcast between February 1973 and January 1980, 39 are absent from Televisa's current distribution package. It's impossible to pinpoint the exact moment when these episodes were shelved, but it's believed that some - if not all - were still distributed until the late 80's, as evidenced by a pack sent to Brazilian network SBT in 1987, which included several now discontinued episodes. Unsurprisingly, many episodes from El Chavo del Ocho's sister series El Chapulín Colorado suffered the same fate.

Reasons and Fan Theories

One of the biggest obstacles to the finding of reasons behind the removal of these episodes is that official, reliable information by Televisa is virtually non-existent. The group refuses to acknowledge the existence of the missing episodes, stating to customers that their current pack is composed by every episode ever produced, even though fans, through several external sources, had already debunked their speech.

Two episodes of Chespirito's standalone works – El Chavo del Ocho's "El robachicos" and El Chapulín Colorado's "Las bromas del tío Ramón", both from 1973 – are believed to have once being taken out of the regular distro package (regaining their 'common' status after a new package was issued by Televisa in 2006) due to both were previously out of rotation by Costa Rican network Repretel. Although there is no confirmation of their absence being reflected in other countries' airings at the time, this is often considered a precedent for possible episode recoveries by Televisa.

Florinda Meza, a prominent cast member and widow of Chespirito, has already expressed interest in the 'disappearance' of the episodes, contacting Televisa on occasions to report airings of discontinued episodes in foreign countries in hopes of getting them back to distribution. Televisa, however, showed no signs of interest in looking into it.

In the face of a lack of official info, there are many rumours and theories about the actual reason behind the removal of these episodes. These include:

  • Damaged tapes: the most accepted reason, where poor conservation of the master tapes eventually caused video and/or audio damage. This is evidenced by the massive cuts done to the currently distributed episodes, as well as scene replacements done to hide video imperfections.
  • Erased tapes: it's theorized that many early episodes from Chespirito's works had their master tapes wiped to make room for newer shows and other episodes, as Televisa executives did not expect that there would be demand for such material decades later. This theory was supported by cast member Rubén Aguirre during an interview for Brazilian fan-site Fórum Chaves.
  • Censorship: Televisa executives or Chespirito's relatives picked by hand episodes that shouldn't be distributed. As an example, the 1976 episode "Festival de la Buena Vecindad - parte 2" includes a song that was supposedly registered by Carlos Villagrán after his departure from the cast, possibly causing the cancellation of the episode's distribution due to internal conflicts between Chespirito and Villagrán. This theory is also supported by the fact that all versions of Chapulín Colorado's "La bella durmiente era un señor muy feo - parte 1", including a remake from the '80s Chespirito era, are out of the current distribution package.
  • Natural disasters: a violent earthquake hit Mexico City in 1985, causing severe damage to the region and, among numerous casualties, affecting Televisa's main station. Although the only archive that was reportedly affected was the sports archive, some people, mostly misinformed, still believe that this is a plausible reason for the apparent loss of episodes. This is proven untrue by the aforementioned pack sent to SBT around 1987.

Episode List

Below is a complete list of all lost episodes whose existence is proven through information collected by fans. According to Lista CH, in addition to the 32 episodes listed, seven more completely unknown episodes are currently undistributed by Televisa.

Key:
Green - Found episodes available in Spanish.
Gold - Found episodes not available in Spanish.
Orange - Partially available episodes/excerpts.
Red - Completely lost episodes.
