* AlternteContinuity: The second series wasn't marketed explicitly as a sequel to the first, but it can be taken for granted, as the characters are older while the setting is noticeably the same. The 2013 CGI series, however, is a completely new continuity, as the characters are younger again and it takes place when Calimero moves to another city.

* AdaptedOut: The second series introduced new characters, but ditched out old ones like Piero's two friends (a rabbit and a piggy, if you are curious) and Calimero's parents. Similarly, the third series has Calimero, Priscilla, Piero and Valeriano as the main characters, with no sign of Susy or Rosita thus far.

* 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.

After becoming a popular icon in Italy the character was later licensed in Japan and had his own two-part anime series. The first series was made by [[ToeiAnimation Toei Animation]] and ran from 1974 to 1975, and the second, with new setting and characters, was made in 1992. The second series, the most popular and famous of the two, mostly consists of the many adventures of Calimero and his friends as they solve mysteries and make documentaries, usually getting into quite a bit of trouble. The series have become a stand in the memory of many Europeans, especially in Spain, Italy and France.

'''''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, revealing he was just dirty and not black. Calimero's authors were Nino and Toni Pagot.
