This video features six episodes from the show. ============================================================================= Pilot #1.01 - 13 September 1974 <http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0540491/ Director: Peter Baldwin Cast: Jack Albertson, Freddie Prinze, King Moody, Rodolfo Hoyos Jr, Sidney Clute, Jerry Fogel Description: Chico is a young man who grew up in the neighborhood where Mr Ed Brown owns a garage & gas station.

He tells Chico, "Get out of here and take your flies with you!" Chico doesn't give up so easily, though. By the end of the show he has gotten a job and takes up residence in Ed's old van, which is parked inside the garage, decked out in full Latino decor!
