“To tease a smile from a child, through humour, as my grandfather always aimed to do, is the greatest challenge and adult can face.
The fact that Zipi y Zape are back to provide us with afternoons of enjoyment and that Carpanta has returned to entertain is the greatest tribute that can be paid to their creator.”
