* LostAesop: In one episode, Don Ramón states that "Good people should love their enemies", a saying El Chavo takes at heart very quickly. That is, disregarding the fact El Chavo is too LiteralMinded to understand what it really means.
--> '''El Chavo''': ''(To Quico)'' I won't retaliate because good people should love their enemies.\\
'''Quico''': Who says that?\\
'''El Chavo''': Don Ramón said that, then La Chilindrina and now I'm saying that, so I won't hit you because good people should love their enemies.\\
'''Quico''': [[TooDumbToLive But Chavo, I'm not your enemy! I'm your friend!]]\\
'''El Chavo''': [[LiteralMinded Should have said so earlier!]] ''(proceeds to beat up Quico)''

* HeadsOrTails: Used in some episodes when trying to win the peso itself. But one stands out due to a bet between three.
--> '''Chilindrina''': ''(To quico)'' If is heads, then el Chavo wins and you lose; and if it's tails, then I win and you lose.
--> '''Quico''': Then when do I win?
--> '''Chilindrina''': When it comes backwards.
--> '''Quico''': That makes sense.

The show was created by comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños (whose artistic name was ''Series/{{Chespirito}}'', "Little Shakespeare"), along with other classic sketch characters like ElChapulinColorado. Chespirito is considered by many to tie Cantinflas as Mexico's greatest comedian, and his sketch comedy shows are beloved amongst the entire Latin American population.

Chespirito is considered by many to tie Cantinflas as Mexico's greatest comedian, and his sketch comedy shows are beloved amongst the entire Latin American population.



The show began in [[TheSeventies 1971]], as a segment in a SketchComedy. In 1973, this segment got its own HalfHourComedy. The show proved to be very popular, and at its peak of popularity spawned a lot of merchandising. After TV special ''El Chavo en Acapulco,'' two major actors left the series, taking their characters with them because of licensing issues, which caused what many believe to be inferior quality episodes. Soon after, "El Chavo" and its sister show ElChapulinColorado were merged into an hour-long sketch comedy show called "Chespirito" (fittingly, since they originated as sketches on the original "Chespirito" show). On "Chespirito", few new Chavo scripts were written, but restaging of old Chavo episodes were a regular feature on the show until Chespirito retired the character in 1992.

* ExtraExtraReadAllAboutIt: El Chavo was once selling newspapers and shouting the trope to announce about cops chasing smugglers and a female domestic servant strike. Watching a cop stalk a woman in maid attire made him mix up. Later, he played on the old joke mentioned in ''TheSimpsons'' example and shouted an announcement about thirteen deceived people. Don Ramón bought a newspaper and complained it was a week-old one. He updated it to fourteen. Then Quico, who had previously asked to read a ''[[ElChapulinColorado Chapulín]]'' comic book to check if he hasn't already read it, returned it, claiming he had already read it. As Quico shouted about ''fifteen'' deceived people, Don Ramón laughed at how the trick was turned on Chavo.

* EatTheDog: In the episode where Chavo brings a stray puppy to the ''vecindad'', Don Ramón takes it away, claiming it as his own. Chilindrina thinks that he finally got her the puppy she's been asking for, only for Don Ramón to say that dog, and every stray belongs to 'shim as part of a business he's starting. Chilindrina asks him if he's going to sell ''tacos de barbacoa.''
