Beloved Mexican comic 'Capulina' dies at age 85
Comic 'Capulina,' Mexico's beloved equivalent of funny man Oliver Hardy, dies at age 85
By The Associated Press

MEXICO CITY (AP) ' The beloved Mexican comic known as "Capulina" has died at age 85, after a six-decade career as Mexico's equivalent of funny fat man Oliver Hardy.

The spokesman for Mexico's National Actors Association says comic actor Gaspar Henaine Perez died at a Mexico City hospital. The cause of death hasn't been released. Henaine Perez had suffered pneumonia and ulcers.

Capulina acted in nearly 100 films, often appearing as a bumbling but good-natured sidekick wearing an old hat with no crown. He later appeared in children's TV series and movies.



Actors Association spokesman Gustavo de Anda said a memorial service was being held Friday night.

Born on Jan. 6, 1926, Henaine Perez is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.
