* BeenThereShapedHistory: In 'El tonel del tiempo' ("The barrel of time"), the twins timetravel to Ancient Egypt and construct a prosthetic nose for Queen [[PunnyName Cleopetra]], who is upset on her really ugly nose, inspired on the Great Sphinx of Giza. She then orders the complete destruction of everything that is more beautiful than her new nose, so Zipi and Zape deface the sphinx to prevent it from being completely demolished. -->'''Zipi:''' As long as the furute generations can appreciate it...! -->'''Zape:''' Don't think so, they'll say it was Napoleon.

* BrokenAesop: Several, usually courtesy of the twins' parents. For example: Mr. Pantuflo has promised, several times, that if their twins get an A he will buy them a bike, the object of their desires. They got an A once ([[StatusQuoIsGod they got As quite frequently in fact]]), not because of any academic prowess, but they got it fairly. So Mr. Pantuflo was obliged to "[[ExactWords buy them what they wrote on a piece of paper]]" they gave him before. The paper was, predictably, full of typos ("We wan a visikle wit too weels") so Mr. Pantuflo said "I don't know what a "visikle" is, it's not in the dictionary - so I'm not buying it.". Kids, don't bother being a good kid: unless your spelling is good, your parents will screw you on a technicality.

* FollowTheLeader: the strip started out as a rather unsubtle rip-off of TheKatzenjammerKids. Later, it grew into its own thing.

'''Zipi y Zape''' are the names of two iconic Spanish comic book characters created by Josť Escobar Saliente in 1947, and of their eponymous strip. With MortadeloYFilemon, they are the most popular and most translated Spanish comic books. Their name is derived from the Spanish word ''zipizape'', meaning "turmoil" or "chaos". This word is seriously outdated though and most people under 60/70 will probably think of the comic book if you say it.

*** This was a case of FollowTheLeader after MortadeloYFilemon, which uses this kind of humor (albeit applied to adults), became the most popular comic book in Spain. Escobar and/or his publishers just didn't think about the UnfortunateImplications of said humor applied to children characters. Mostly because it was during a time when [[ValuesDissonance physical punishment to children by their parents was seen as acceptable]], and child abuse wasn't nearly as well known as it is today. To be fair, Escobar ''never'' shows any explicit violence in these scenes, not even AmusingInjuries.

** Also, the comics could be dark sometimes. One time Jaimita scolded the twins and they ran away: while she was looking for them, she overheard them saying "Oh, what a world!" "What did you expect? We don't fit on it!" Jaimita fears she was too strict with them and that they could be planning [[DrivenToSuicide to do something stupid]]. She barges into the room... only to have a laughing fit when she sees the twins trying to hide in a chest. [[GeniusBonus The Spanish word for "world" is also an antiquated synonym for "chest"]
