** As proper parodies, there have been episodes based around Literature/DonQuixote (Featuring an old man who believes he's El Chapulín Colorado), Literature/{{Faust}}, Theatre/MyFairLady, and then some.

** As proper parodies, there have been episodes based around Literature/DonQuixote (Featuring an old man who believes he's El Chapulín Colorado), Literature/{{Faust}}, Theatre/MyFairLady, and then some. The four-parter episode "La función debe continuar" is one big mash-up of sketches parodying several works, ranging from live-action series, films and even ''cartoons'', with the parodied work being mentioned.



** Especially to Franchise/{{Batman}}, the Green Hornet and ''El Chavo del Ocho''.
** In the 1977 version of the episode in which a martian comes to Earth to steal some animals, the martian looks like a [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]] character.

** In the BeachEpisode, Carlos Villagrán's character was a madman that believed he was Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan, up to and including pretending to run in slow-motion (A fact that was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the asylum's nurse).
** The two-parter "El disfraz, el antifaz y algo más" featured short sketches involving parodies of Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/LaurelAndHardy and Creator/JerryLewis as well as other Series/Chespirito characters.

** In the BeachEpisode, where El Chapulín helps a production crew of a film about himself, this trope was {{invoked}} and PlayedForLaughs in a more literal by one of the actors (Played by Ramón Valdéz), explaining a fan (María Antonieta de las Nieves) that film props are not real, and just made of styrofoam. He proves his point by having the styrofoam rock he was holding float on a pool nearby. After that, the film director arrives and believes the fan is looking for a doll floating in the pool, and [[HilarityEnsues tries to step on the rock to reach the doll]]. [[RuleOfThree Yet again]], later, when the actor holds the rock in one hand for a photo, El Chapulín mistakes him for a madman that believes he's a superhero, and tries to defeat him.

* AntiClimaxBoss: InUniverse in one of the [[TheWildWest Wild West]] episodes. El Rascabuches and Rosa la Rumorosa constantly threaten El Chapulín and the sheriff that, once [[TheDreaded El Matoncísimo Kid]] arrives, they will be set free. Not only El Chapulín and the sheriff are incapable of helping due to them being incarcerated due to their clumsiness, but El Rascabuches, Rosa la Rumorosa and El Matoncísimo Kid are all defeated ''in a few seconds'' by the extras offscreen.
* ArrangedMarriage: Most of the episodes featuring the Chicharra Paralizadora involved El Chapulín trying to avert one.



* AsHimself: {{Invoked}} in the BeachEpisode. The production crew of a Chapulín Colorado movie finds out the actor playing the hero resigned, so they ask El Chapulín Colorado to play as himself in it. [[HilarityEnsues Naturally, the movie's plot does not go on as desired thanks to El Chapulín's clumsiness]].

* BitchInSheepsClothing: La Minina and Rosa la Rumorosa have used this trope to take advantage of El Chapulín and his allies, though La Minina is generally too much of TheDitz to be any dangerous.



* ChromaKey: Used ''very'' extensively in the series, for most of its special effects (Such as El Chapulin when shrunk or two identical characters played by the same actor) or ToonPhysics.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early sketches had a darker sense of humor. Frequently, Chapulín would rescue the characters in distress, only to kill them through his own clumsiness. Once, when the villain threatens the victims with a machine gun, and Chapulin manages to wrestle it away with him...but shoots up the victims at the same time. Sometimes if he´s helping a lady, he just kills her father and doesn´t seem all that bothered by it.

* SecretIdentityIdentity: El Chapulín doesn't seem to have a "real" identity besides being a superhero, and if he ever had one it may have been absorbed completely by the hero persona (for American audiences, it's kind of like TheTick). In an episode it's revealed that "Chapulín Colorado" is ''really'' the given name of our hero, from before he took his superhero role. (And its implied that his real mother is [[{{Superman}} Lois Lane]])

* ToonPhysics: Unusually for a live-action series, it's all over the place. ChromaKey was used for things like El Chapulin suspending himself in mid-air when trying to pull someone down, El Chapulín being sent to the sky with one punch (Except for his shoes, which stay on the floor), people flying, etc.

* CursedWithAwesome: The spell the WickedStepmother from the ''Literature/SnowWhite'' AffectionateParody used to create a poisonous apple carries a curse to the one that casts it if the one who ate it gets kissed by a PrinceCharming (Which happens to be el Chapulín...[[ItMakesSenseInContext 's Squeaking Mallet]]). Once it happens, the Stepmother stares in horror as the curse is about to be cast on her. The result? She becomes an attractive woman. [[GainaxEnding And el Chapulín asks her out after he finishes telling the story]].
