Peluchín is the 235th episode of Season 7 of El Chavo del Ocho. It first aired on April 16, 1979.

Why It Doesn’t Get a Dog to Play With

  1. This is yet another episode where its plot is very bland and uninteresring, since it simply consists of la Chilindrina wanting to have a dog to play with her, and then convincing El Chavo to act as if he was a dog called Peluchín, and nothing else happens beyond that.
  2. It lacks jokes, and the few it have are not that funny.
  3. The pacing is horribly slow, thus killing the comedic timing for any joke to work.
  4. The beginning of the episode has nothing to do with the rest of it, being simply filler.
  5. Seeing El Chavo pretending to be a dog for the whole episode can be pretty awkward to watch (especially when he goes to Doña Florinda's and Don Ramón's houses). It drags out for too long, and the scenes involving it are repetitive since all "El Chavo-Peluchín" does is to spend the majority of the episode biting people. It can be funny if he is simply playing dog for fun in a short time, like how it happened in some episodes.
  6. The fact that this was Ramón Valdés' last episode before returning in 1981 is very sad.
  7. The songs "Peluchin chin chin" and "Quiero que sepas", both sung by la Chilindrina, pale in comparison with other songs from the series.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The actors still do a good job with their characters.
  2. None of the characters are unpleasant.
  3. Good Ending: Don Ramón gives his daughter Chilindrina a plush dog, since they don't have enough condition to care for a real one. Chilindrina is more than happy with this dog.
