Today tribute to La bola de cristal in #AlaskaySegura9 🔮🔮🔮 At 00:50 in TVE1.

La Bola de Cristal (English: The Crystal Ball) was a Spanish television show that was broadcast on La Primera Cadena of Televisión Española from 1984 to 1988.

The show was the brainchild of Spanish writer Lolo Rico and was hosted by pop singer Alaska.

It is worth noting the continuous recognition of different sectors of society towards this program that went beyond the norm set by the children’s programs of its time and other more current ones, and that bet on treating children as adults.

The show, which was ostensibly targeted at a young audience, reflected the spirit of the times, that of the post-Franco Spanish transition and of the cultural and musical movement known as la movida.

In contrast to previous shows, with a very childish use of language, it had continuous puns related to electronics: the Electroduendes (“Electrogoblins”) puppets included Maese Cámara, Hada Vídeo and Bruja Avería (the Breakdown Witch) as regular characters.
