Don Ramon is a character in the series El Chavo del Ocho and the animated series of the same name.
Porque el es genial (Why He Rocks)
He is one of the funniest, most likable, friendly (although not always) and outstanding characters in the entire show.
He has a huge variety of funny and unforgettable scenes and lines, just like all the other characters.
The scenes where he gets slapped by Doña Florinda are classic and very funny, even if they are unfair most of the time.
Although he is often annoyed with Chavo, he is one of the few characters who really seem to care about him, along with Señor Barriga, Ñoño and Paty. He is also the main father figure to Chavo.
He is one of, if not the most beloved character by El Chavo fans.
Occasionally he gives El Chavo some good moral lessons, such as teaching him that getting revenge on someone is never a good choice and that "good people should love their enemies", that means, always forgive those who hurt them.
Ramón Valdés did more than a great job playing him on the show and even the mediocre series ¡Ah qué Kiko! that happened after he and Carlos Villagrán left the show.
His design in the animated version, even though it's not as well represented as the other characters, it's still great.
Every job he's ever worked on is amazing and he always brings up a lot of funny moments because of them throughout the show.
¡La venganza nunca es plena, mata el alma y la envenena! (Revenge is never good, it kills the soul and poisons it!)
Malas cualidades (Bad Qualities)
He was a bit flanderized in the animated series, due to the absence of La Chilindrina, going from a angry father who struggles to get a job to support his daughter La Chilindrina, to a man who lives alone and acts much more lazy with less motivation to want to get a job. But, like Chavo and Godínez, he didn't get too much decline in character and is still likable for the most part, turning a bit looking like Squidward.
He can be a little unlikable at times, mainly because he can get annoyed easily and his treatment of Doña Clotilde. While it is kinda understandable since she is sometimes clingy towards him (especially in the cartoon), his rejection of her in favor of Gloria just because of her physical appearence can teach a bad lesson that you should only get into a relationship with beautiful people.
