Guido Kaczka went on to have an important role in the highly successful youth-oriented soap Chiquititas, where he played Felipe Fraga (Piojo), main character Belen's brother. He appeared on the show during the entire first cycle (four seasons, from 1995 to 1998). Chiquititas was a Cris Morena creation produced by Telefe.
After his four year stint in Chiquititas, Guido was cast as Agustina Cherri's (his former co-star in Chiquititas) romantic partner in the second season of Verano del 98, another Cris Morena/Telefe production. There, he met his future wife Florencia Bertotti.
After Verano del 98, Guido took a two years vacation and returned as Pablo Mendoza in 2002's Maximo Corazon, where he was reunited with Daniela Mastrichio, and acted alongside Victoria De la Rua, niece of Argentine President Fernando De la Rua.
In 2003 he was chose by Cris Morena to star in a Chiquititas spin-off show, Rincón de Luz, playing Alvaro de Solar (unrelated to his previous character in the first four seasons of the show). He was the main star alongside popular singer Soledad Pastorutti.
