   Braulio Castillo

(spanish)

Braulio Castillo Cintrón, nació en Bayamón el 30 de marzo de 1933. Cursó estudios en la Centra High School de Santurce y en la U.P.R., donde obtuvo el grado de Bachiller en Artes. Tocó mandolina en la Orquesta Rondalla de Puerto Rico y se destacó especialmente como actor dramático.

Sus valores humanos estuvieron siempre por encima de su profesión. La actividad a que con más cariño se entrega quizás sea el programa infantil "Topo Gigio" por el profundo sentido de humanidad y bondad que su creadora manifiesta a través de este muñeco.
