Ramon Valdes

Ramon Valdés (1923-1988) was a Mexican actor. He was born in Mexico City.

At the age of two, he was moved to Ciudad Juárez, a northern border town where he and his brothers, Tin Tan, and Loco Valdez, would polish their acting skills. The four brothers would go on to become three of Latin America's most legendary comedians.

Valdés participated in more than 50 Mexican films. He is most remembered, however, for playing Don Ramón in the hit television show El Chavo del Ocho. Show creator and main star Chespirito was a fan of Valdés, and he thought Valdés was perfectly fit to play Don Ramón, who had a daughter (Chilindrina, played by Maria Antonieta de las Nieves), a person who had romantic interest in him (Doña Clotilde, played by Angelines Fernández) and a romantic interest who slapped him across the face on every show (Doña Florinda, played by Florinda Meza).

Valdés also appeared prominently on Chespirito's other hit show, El Chapulín Colorado.

Both El Chavo.. and El Chapulín.. became major international hits across Latin America, Spain, the United States and other, non Spanish speaking countries, giving their entire cast international fame. Ramón Valdés was no exception, he would be identified as Don Ramón at many different countries he visited.

In 1978, he quit Chespirito's productions, but he returned to television a few years later, with fellow Chavo del Ocho and Chapulín Colorado cast member Carlos Villagrán in ¡Ay, qué Kiko!. Ay que Kiko found little success, however, and Ramón Valdés returned to work with Chespirito for a brief time during the middle 1980s.

Valdés also owned a circus, participating in circus acts.

On August 9th, 1988, Valdés passed away after a battle with lung cancer.
