“El Chavo del 8”: The sad reason why Quico wore a sailor suit

For this reason, if the series had a ‘remake’, they definitely could not change the costumes, much less that of quicofor the story behind his little sailor suit.

This is the sad story behind Quico’s little sailor suit

Many suggest that one of the reasons Quico wore this uniform was to indicate respect and show that he belonged to a sophisticated party. Or that he even did it to highlight his economic difference with the other children that the farm, especially Chavo.

And although it could be so, Quico could also wear any other military uniform to mark his social class with that of the rest.

However, if we pay attention, in the episode “Don Ramón leaves the neighborhood” 1977, Doña Florinda shows an album of family photos to Professor Jirafales. In one of these photographs Quico is seen as a baby in the legs of his father Federico.

Quico says that his father “rests in fish.” The teacher tries to correct him by telling him that he is “at peace”, but Quico claims that he meant “fish” because his father was eaten by a shark.

This story was not the child’s invention, as his mother confirms the story and comments that Federico was a sailor whose ship sank on the high seas.

There is also a flashback that did not appear in the original Spanish version where Federico is seen leaving the neighborhood to start his journey on the high seas, although there is a probability of a storm.

Federico, the sailor who wears a uniform with a white captain’s cap, approaches Doña Florinda to tell her not to worry about the bad feeling she has about her trip and that everything will be fine thanks to her extensive experience sailing.

This not only explains how Doña Florinda had money without having to work, since she received a pension for the death of her husband and why Quico was always seen as a sailor, since he honored his late father.
