These are Gaby, Fofo and Miliki with Fofito (the youngest one). Their father was Emig, brother of Pompoff and Theddy. The Pompoff and Theddy we see on the old Ed Sullivan show are the children of the original ones. Which means... these guys are their cousins. They were very, very popular in all South America, working there for years and years, from 1946 to 1973. Fofo (the short one) passed away in 1976. Gaby, the straight man, died in 1995. All their children are in the business. Great musicians, good comedians, lovely human beings. Memories from my childhood in Argenina... Thanks, Pat.
