Mexico's 'Little Shakespeare' dies at 85

Mexican comic icon Roberto Gómez Bolaños has died at 85.

Known as Chesperito (Little Shakespeare), he was one of Latin America’s most beloved comic actors and his work was translated into dozens of languages.

Among his characters El Chapulin Colorado was the inspiration behind The Simpson’s Bumblebee man.
