* AnachronismStew: Whenever historical events are portrayed, expect some out-of-place item, usually a contemporary one like a cardboard-made TV in old Rome. Other characters will invariably call it a fleeting style which will be out-of-fashion soon.

* NoSenseOfDirection: Mortadelo's level of disorientation is legendary. Instructed to drive to Córdoba, Argentina (M&F are playing the 1978 FIFAWorldCup with the Spanish team) he makes it to the Córdoba of ''Spain''. After fording the ocean thinking it was a very wide river.

*** Fun fact: In RealLife, Enrique Chicote, the only man who ever got the top prize in the Spanish version of WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire, answered one of the last questions correctly thanks to one of these jokes that he read in the comic books.

* ArtEvolution: Ibáñez art style evolved during the first 15 years of the series. At first, the strip was black and white, resembling the art style from the American cartoons of the 1930s and 1940s with some traits of French comic books. The character design was also different, with a Filemón that resembled Sherlock Holmes and a Mortadelo that had an umbrella and a hat from which he got his disguises. During this time, Ibáñez started to get more and more influenced by French and Belgium comic artists of the time, specially Creator/AndreFranquin. These influences got reflected in the series until the mid 1960's, when his own style got more or less defined.
** It's worth mentioning "''El sulfato atómico''", the series first 44-pages story released in 1969. The art style in this volume is the most detailed and elaborated Ibáñez has ever drawn, which is one of the main reasons why it is considered his masterpiece. However, putting that much effort in that art style turned out to be too time consuming, so Ibáñez decided to go back to his less-detailed style so he could focus on the humour gags and be able to release more volumes a year.

Created in 1958 [[PrintLongRunners and still running]], the strip has released more than 190 books so far (and even more short stories), it's the most popular and respected comic book series ever produced in Spain, and probably the only local franchise that can still compete in sales with {{Manga}} and American ComicBooks at this point in the Spaniard market. The series has also had numerous [[CrossOver crossovers]] with both other Ibáñez's characters (like Rompetechos, Pepe Gotera & Otilio or the wacky neighbors from 13 Rue del Percebe) and characters from other Spaniard comic book artists (like Zipi & Zape, Captain Trueno, etc...)

* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: Eggplants. Ibáñez likes to draw eggplants lying around, just because they're funny.
** There's more to it than just being a "funny fruit". In Spain, the word "berenjena" has several other uses in coloquial language: a "berenjeno" is someone who likes to argue for stuff that is pointless or totally irrelevant, a "berenjenal" (strictly, the place where eggplants are planted) is an imbroglio or other kind of trouble and a "discusión de berenjenas" (lit. "eggplant argument") is an argument where neither side makes sense or even sees the point at hand.
** There's one instance where Mortadelo has to deal with members of a certain political party, which has as its logo a hand with an eggplant (a parody of the actual logo of the PSOE, a hand with a rose), meaning these guys are all ''berenjenos''.

** One of the Football World Cup themed albums featured the Scotland national football team, with names such as Mac Arron (Macaroni) Mac Abeo (Maccabee) or Mac Anudo (macanudo, Argentinian slang for 'excellent')

Added DiffLines:

** Foreign characters and/or places tend to fall into this as well. For example, the villain of "Robots bestiajos" was a Japanese MadScientist called Mirake Tekasko ("mira que te casco", roughly "be careful or I'll hit you") who eventually was reported to have been arrested in the Japanese town of Higosheko ("higo seco", meaning "dried fig").
