Even people who never saw "Sabado Gigante" have probably seen a parody of it.
The over-the-top Spanish-language variety show -- which broadcaster Univision is shutting down after 53 years -- has been spoofed numerous times throughout its run, exporting the broad notions of the program to English-language viewers who never laid eyes on the original.
For several years starting in 2002, "Saturday Night Live" cast member Fred Armisen played Ferecito, the gold-toothed, timbales-beating host of "Show Biz Grande Explosion!" Ferecito would deliver modest punchlines, then strike a cowbell, pull a long face and say, "Ay, dios mio!" ("Oh my God").
Viewers who long for the original, of course, can always turn to clips such as this.
