Emilio Aragon “Miliki” on new Spanish stamp



Spanish Post issued a stamp to commemorate famous spanish Clown, Miliki.

The popular clown Miliki is one of the most beloved characters by generations of Spanish children, and on this occasion, he is depicted on the Popular Character stamp series by Correos which remembers all those who are part of Spanish historical and cultural heritage.

It was in 1973 when “Los payasos de la tele” (the TV clowns) made their first appearance on television with the welcome greeting: “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, Fofa and Miliki, who were joined years later by their sons Fofito and Milikito.

Miliki and his brothers Fofa and Gaby began their artistic way by acting in the circus. In 1939 they joined the Circo Price and in 1945 immigrated 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 “The Grand Circus of TV” which a year later was renamed “The clowns” and which was joined by Fofito and Milikito.

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 misninos de 40 anos and A todosmisninos, in memory of those who for years were faithful to his friendliness and good spirits.
