MEXICO CITY (AP) Xavier Lpez, a Mexican childrens comic better known by his stage name Chabelo, has died at 88, President Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador wrote Saturday.

Lpez's best-known work, the Sunday variety show En Familia con Chabelo, ran for an astonishing 48 years from 1967 to 2015.

The Mexican president wrote in his Twitter account that his own eldest son, Jos Ramon, woke up early to see him (on television) more than 40 years ago.

Lpez, who was no relation to the president, usually performed dressed in kids clothing well into his 80s. He helped found a genre of adult comics dressed as kids that became a staple for decades on Mexican television.
