The popular clown Miliki is one of the most beloved characters by generations of children, and is on this occasion, is depicted on the Popular Character series which remembers all those who are part of our historical and cultural heritage.
It was in 1973 when â€œLos payasos de la teleâ€œ (the TV clowns) made their first appearance on television with the welcome greeting: "Como estÃ¡n ustedes" (How are you). This expression marked the beginning of the show which continued with stories and songs and which entertained children for over a decade . The protagonists of the story were the Aragon brothers: Gaby, FofÃ³ and Miliki, who were joined years later by their sons Fofito and Milikito.
Miliki, the youngest of the brothers who is depicted in the stamp, was born Emilio AragÃ³n BermÃºdez (Carmona, Seville, 1929-Madrid, 2012). His father and uncles were the famous clowns Emig, Pompoff and Thedy, from whom he learned the love and know-how of the circus.
Miliki and his brothers FofÃ³ and Gaby began acting in the circus with their dancer sister RocÃo. In 1939 they joined the Circo Price and in 1945 emigrated to Cuba where they were very successful in television. For over 25 years they lived in America: Puerto Rico, Mexico, Venezuela, United States and Argentina were among the countries where they were cheered by the public.
On their return to Spain, they joined TVE (Spanish National Television) in 1973 with the premiere of â€œThe Grand Circus of TVEâ€ which a year later was renamed â€œThe clownsâ€ and which was joined by Fofito and Milikito. The clowns were accompanied with songs that became very popular such as: Susanita tiene un ratÃ³n and Hola Don Pepito.
Besides being a comedian, Miliki played the flute and studied music and composition. After the separation of The Clowns he turned to music production and recorded several albums with his daughter Rita. He wrote books, published his memoirs and won several music awards. In 2008 and 2009 he recorded the albums: A mis niÃ±os de 40 aÃ±os and A todos mis niÃ±os, in memory of those who for years were faithful to his friendliness and good spirits.
