He started working at radio stations when he was 14 years old. At that time, he was an employee of the radio businessman Tomás Muñiz, then general manager of WIAC-AM and father of the then producer and actor Tommy Muñiz. During this period Agrelot developed his first comic character, Torito Fuertes, a mischievous eight-year-old boy for a family comedy program sponsored by Borden, Inc. and evaporated suleche (the name Torito Fuertes was a pun with "strong stingray", a desirable consequence of drinking good milk). Later, the character took his own life in a radio program first called Professor Colgate (sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive's flagship toothpaste) and then called El Colegio de la Alegría (The School of Joy). This program introduced Tommy Muñiz as the school teacher of a rather dysfunctional classroom.
