Telenovela en capítulos semanales, la pasaban los viernes. Se intentó aprovechar la popularidad de Graciela Mauri, que era ya una jovencita tal vez de 10 o 12 años de edad, su último momento de infancia, en el que todavía conservaba algo de la simpatía que mostró en Mundo de Juguete. Historia inverosímil, donde la elegante psicóloga Liliana Abud se arrastraba de amor por un muchacho de la vecindad (escenario idéntico al del Chavo del 8) Después, Abud mejor se dedicó a escribir telenovelas que a actuar. En cambio Ortiz de Pinedo prefirió la comedia y se olvidó de las novelas. A Graciela Mauri la vimos sólo una vez más en telenovelas, su estatura no le ayudó a protagonizar, y optó por hacer discos -sin éxito- hasta llegar a convertirse en Donalú, divirtiendo a los niños a los que alguna vez representó.
