Famed TV personality and long time host of Sabado Gigante, Mario Luis Kreutzberger, known more by his stage name Don Francisco, has decided to retire.

Oh noooo! What will we watch as a family on Saturday nights now?

Growing up in a Spanish-speaking household, you know Sabado Gigante was what we religiously gathered around the TV for.

Don Francisco’s charismatic personality kept us all engaged and entertained for decades. 53 years, to be exact. And although it is sad to see the show that crossed generations end, you’ve got to give it to the man, he deserves a break!

Sept. 26th, 2015 was his first Saturday off in 47 years! That is amazing! Find out how his last emotional day on the great Sabado Gigante was like here!

Congratulations on a successful career Don Francisco! One can only hope and strive to get on your level one day!
