    So my friend, who can't be THAT much younger than me, said he had never heard of Chico and the Man.

    I said, "C'mon, pendejo. Freddie Prinze!"

    He said, "You mean Freddie Prinze, Jr.?"

    :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

    So this one is for him.

    Before my (US) time, but according to my source it was meh at best

    I guess Chico went out with Raquel Welch (when she was hot) IRL

    The running joke on the show was, "Ees not my yob"

    Chico killed himself IRL

    GHP reporting :hat:

    Yeah I imagine if you grew up anywhere with any cultural diversity in 1974, the show was "meh". But where I grew up it was downright educational. That show taught us the word "beaner"! :c

    As an aside, where I grew up now looks like Juarez. Thanks a lot, Freddie. :rolleyes:

    We know what happened to Freddie Prinze. :facepalm: It happened while the show was still on. They tried to keep it going without him, but it sucked.
