* BornUnlucky: Calimero's luck in the first series is less than impressive, being both a trouble magnet and not good in taking decisions, the latter being justified given that he is a little child after all. He ends having to ask help (or pardon) to his fathers half of the time.

* CatchPhrase: "It is an unjustice, it is!" or some variant.

* DeadUnicornTrope: Due to the character's popularity, "Calimero" became an old European slang for a person who feels unhappy and misunderstood to a childish extent. However, this was really a deep case of cultural {{Flanderization}} instead of an accurate portrait of the character. While it is true that Calimero often felt misunderstood in the series, he actually had a strong and upbeat personality and always managed to get over his problems.

'''''Calimero''''' ('''''Karimero''''') is an Italian/Japanese cartoon about a charming, but hapless anthropomorphized cartoon chicken; the only black one in a family of yellow chickens. He wears half of his egg shell still on his head, which is probably his main recognizable feature. Calimero originally appeared on the Italian television show Carosello (consisting of long commercials) on July 14, 1963. He was a testimonial for a line of soaps, and in each black and white cartoon he ended up washed and white ("I'm not black, I'm only dirty!"): remarkably racist and conformist, even for the times. Calimero's authors are Nino and Toni Pagot.
