Este señor de negro 1975
Este señor de negro is a series released in 1975. It had a total of 19 episodes and was broadcast by TVE. The storyline revolves around the character of Sixto Zabaneta, invented by the illustrator Antonio Mingote. It represents Spanish society’s most archaic values and principles. Don Sixto has a jeweller’s shop in Madrid’s Plaza Mayor and lives with his sister Carola. At home, a photograph sits on a table of their deceased grandfather, who occasionally preaches to the lead character on the dangers of society. The core idea of the series is to take a critical look at the reactionary world represented by this man, not because he is anchored to the past, but because of his distrust in the new trends. Antonio Mingote created the series and Antonio Mercero simply directed it.
