Legendary Mexican SitCom (and staple of popular culture) about a little orphan boy and his quirky neighborhood. Famous for casting adults as little children. This lets the show get away with having many rather awful things happen to the kids without it being too horrifying, since they're really adults and playing parodies of kids, anyway.

** Whenever Profesor Jirafales begins the lesson at his class, the students will invariably make noise and refuse to pay attention. Then, the good teacher will always have to utter "Silencio. Silencio. '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis ¡¡¡SI-LEN-CIO!!!]]'''''" (Silence... Silence... '''''SI-LENCE!!!''''')
*** A recurring joke is that, when Profesor Jirafales asks for silence, everybody shut up...except for El Chavo, usually telling something bad about him after everybody got quiet. [[Main/HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensues]].
