Biography

Cri-Cri is a fictional character, an anthropomorphic cricket, created by Francisco Gabilondo Soler in 1934 while broadcasting his own musical radio show on Mexico’s station XEW.
Cri-Cri is known as the “grillito cantor” or “the singing cricket”. He is a character created by Francisco Gabilondo Soler in his childhood and may even be considered “his inner personality”
The character became so famous and gave its author such renown, that it became a second name for Gabilondo. In the mid part of the 20th century he became the most recognizable singer of children’s songs in Spanish. Gabilondo’s dedication to this segment of the population has been greatly admired, comparable to Walt Disney in his honest approach to making life fun for those who are getting started in life.
