* ParentalAbandonment: Kiko and La Chilindrina are orphaned of one of their parents (Kiko's dad died when the ship that he was captain of sunk; Chilindrinas's mom has a classic DeathByChildbirth).

El Chavo has never met his parents, and (according to [[AllThereInTheManual a suplementary novel]]) the only person who raised him is already dead; while he is rarely prone to remind people of his orphanhood, it becomes a harsh remark when he does.
