Sábados Felices (Happy Saturdays) is a comedy show that debuted in 1972. It has been produced by Caracol Televisión for its entire run on the air; from 1972–1998, when Caracol was a programadora, it aired on Cadena Uno. It has been hosted by Alfonso Lizarazo, Alí Humar, Jota Mario Valencia, Carlos Calero and Hernán Orjuela.


It began in 1972 as Campeones de la risa, changing names in 1976 when Caracol for the first time gained the rights to its Saturday timeslot.

After the licitación of 1997, Caracol did not receive any timeslots on Saturdays. This meant that Caracol's signature Saturday programs were presented for the first seven months of 1998 under the auspices of other programadoras; Sábados Felices was presented by Coestrellas, CPS and Proyectamos Televisión. The 1998 move of Caracol from a programadora to a private television channel, after 1,323 episodes had been aired, marked a format change for the program.

In 2016, it received the guinness world record for the world's oldest comedy show.[1] "Sábados Felices, Longest running TV sketch comedy show". guinness world records. Retrieved 2016-02-20.
