Since in Hispanic countries everybody and their cat has watched it (the Mexican adaptation's finale ''was actually a real parade!''), the spoilers in the following description will go unmarked. Especially since its US remake (''UglyBetty'') deviates quite a bit from the original.

* CulturalTranslation: ''UglyBetty''. It is, however, popular here, and there are many multinational re-makes.

Literally: "I'm Betty, The Ugly One" (1999-2001). The most famous hispanic SoapOpera in the world, a {{Dramedy}} that also [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] the [[BeautyEqualsGoodness paradigm of the beautiful heroine]] by instead starring an ugly one.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: Averted; while the point of the soap was promoting the inner beauty over superficial attractive, many of Betty's actions can be seen as unethical and just plain wrong. [[WordOfGod The author even admits]] that Betty shouldn't be considered that successful and [[BrokenAesop her "happy ending" is dark-tinged]].

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* KavorkaMan: Armando Mendoza. Yes, he is good looking and seems to care for his loved ones and friends, but most of the time he is a neurotic {{Jerkass}} with a tendency to being overly bossy, and barks to everyone on sight when things doesn't go as he likes.

* SmallNameBigEgo: Patricia. Prides on her beauty, her (brief) time studying finance in a (third rate) university, and her rich ancestor. The truth? She is a vain, shallow and egotistical empty-head, whose time in college was only to find a husband (who quickly got rid of her when he realized what she was like), and whose own family wants nothing with her. Nobody denies she is pretty, but ''anyone else'' in Eco Moda is nicer than her - even the WomanScorned, even the {{Jerkass}}es. She tries to live the same way as she did when she was maintained, and that only hastens her fall. She frustrates Marcela, her only friend, by gleefully ignoring every bit of advice the poor woman gives to her. The only person who actually likes her is Nicolás, who is so charmed by her beauty that ignores every clue he is given about her real personality.

* RealitySubtext: Ana María Orozco and Julian Arango, the actors who interpreted Betty and Hugo Lombardi respectively, got divorced during the soap. Their respective characters were ideological opposites, and is believed that the bitterness both held for each other helped to make their confrontations more realistic.

* OverprotectiveDad: Hermes Pinzón, Betty's father. He seems to notice all the awkwardness and ugliness of his daughter, but still insists on advising her against men with "bad intentions" and drives away any prospective son-in-law. Given what happened the one time his daughter ''did'' had a boyfriend, you couldn't blame him.

** GoodParents: Hermes is a loving and caring father that often falls into ProperlyParanoid territory while Doña Julia encourages her daughter into socializing and making friends, Betty said that they're the most important thing in life.
