    ¿Por qué estoy leyéndolo en español? Pero qué bueno que Sergio está contento en el fin después de aprovechado por sus tía e hijos. (Why am I reading it in Spanish? But good that Sergio is content in the end after being taken advantage of by his aunt and children.)

    He’s basically feeling drained by his family, who keep asking for and needing things. But then they ask him if HE needs anything, and he feels better.

    For those who don’t speak Spanish:
    Gracie: Dad, can I have $5?
    I need new shoes.
    Where are we going on vacation this year?
    Baldo: Dad, when are you going to buy me a car?
    I need pants.
    I’m hungry.
    Carmen: Sergio, we need to buy food.
    The car needs gas.
    Where are we going on vacation this year?
    (Second-to-Last panel): You want flan, Dad?
    Want some coffee with milk?
    Want your slippers?

    Surprisingly, I remembered enough of the Spanish I learned in high school in the early 70s to be able to understand most of this.

    Didn’t even need to understand all the words to get the meaning of this one. All I needed to see was the hands out and $5 in the first frame.
    It must be true what the old saying says: “One picture is worth a thousand words”; even if the words are in a language you don’t know.

    The Spanish word for pants reminds me of a commercial that runs in Philadelphia for a bank, where guys dressed as the Founding Fathers are stuck in a parking garage and the gate won’t go up. One guy says,
    Rub it on your pantaloons, man!

    I thought I was doing well picking up on the Vampire costumes!

    Since I don’t read Spanish I guess I won’t be reading this strip anymore.

    I just wonder why all of a sudden he starts doing this? Yes, this strip caters to Hispanics, but we ARE in America, aren’t we? Does he want to kill the strip?

    I’ve always liked this strip. But I don’t speak or read Spanish, and I have no plans to learn how.

    I don’t speak Spanish and I understood all of it. Good strip!

    Well, one thing about vampires. They dress well. Tia Carmen should wear that dress every day.

    This is just a minor GoComic glitch. This strip was to be todays Baldo en Español, all of which appear here also. , as do a number of strips.

    Try Fred Basset en Español . On second thought, don’t. Loses the “Britishness.”
