GC (character)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

GC was a short-lived, purple, anthropomorphic cat puppet, created by Televisa's Canal 5 channel as a sidekick (and possible replacement) of the aging Tio Gamboin. The name GC comes from the channel's call sign XHGC, which was given to the station honoring Guillermo González Camarena, the Mexican inventor of an early color television transmission system. Thus, GC also indirectly pays homage to Mr. Camarena.
