The first three editions of the weekly quickly sold out despite a ban that was placed by the government of Porfirio Diaz who was El Hijo's prime target. The title of the paper was itself a parodic take on a popular pro-Diaz paper called El Ahuizote. The ban on El Hijo prompted the publishers to temporarily assume other satiric monikers, such as El Padre del Ahuizote, El Nieto del Ahuizote, and El Bisnieto del Ahuizote (per the title, El Ahuizote lacked a mother). In 1902, the anarchist siblings Ricardo and Enrique Flores Magon joined the paper before their exile in 1904. More recently, the building which housed the print shop where El Hijo del Ahuizote was re-discovered by one of the Magon's great-grandchildren and turned into a museum (Item ID: 173892)
