The A-Z Challenge continues with the letter C!

When I was a kid, I looked at tv a lot.
I remember sitcoms and the Vietnam War and variety shows.
A fun part of the variety shows was this bigger than life personality known as Charo!

Long story short, Charo is a gas! She has big blond hair, teeny tiny sparkly costumes and English is not her native language. Charo sings and dances and is downright hilarious. She put "cuchi cuchi"  into the American lexicon. Charo is beautiful and I love her. I think everyone else does too. What I like most about Charo is her beautiful guitar playing.

The Carol Burnett Show was also a great part of my tv time. 
Carol herself was great, 
but I really tuned in for Tim Conway and Harvey Korman.
Those two were the funniest people on tv at the time. 
I'm so glad we had that time together...


  1. First, thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog!

    Like you, I grew up watching the Carol Burnett show. Favorite all time skit, Mamma's Family. The one where Tim Conway talks about the elephants at the zoo and the rest of the cast are laughing with their heads in their hands, unable to go on. Great show!

  2. I remember Charo and Carol. If I'm notmistaken, Charo traveled with Xavier Cougat.

  3. Charo married xavier cugat as well...

  4. Charo is Godmother to a friend of mine. He says she is just as wonderful in person. Of course, he might be biased, but I believe him just the same.

  5. I hadn't heard of her before. What expressive eyes she has!
