This article is about about the program which was renamed to Chespirito in 1971. For the current Chespirito program during the 80s and 90s, see Chespirito.

Los Supergenios de la Mesa Cuadrada is a most famous program produced by Televisa between 1968 and 1971. It was the first proper program by Roberto Gómez Bolaños or "Chespirito". Originally launched as a small block of the larger Sábados de la fortuna (later Carrusel con Neftalí), it became independent when the larger program was cancelled.

Then, in 1971, the program was renamed to Chespirito y la Mesa Cuadrada. However, this phase is short-lived.

Later in 1971, the program was renamed to simply Chespirito. This phase was maintained until 1973, when both El Chavo and El Chapulín Colorado (the program's most famous sketches) became independent programs.
