** Contest TV shows are often described as brainwashers. When Alma Negra and Matalote describe in one episode about several torture methods they use, El Chapulín was mortified to learn that one of them was forcing the victim to watch contest shows on the TV 24/7.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: The ending of the "La función debe continuar" four-parter. Its [[AnAesop aesop]] is that the end of the physical existence of a work or an author does not truly mean it's lost forever. With Chespirito's own death, he has been proven right.

With Given that four-parter was the finale of ''El Chapulín Colorado'',[[note]]Although it eventually came back as a sketch on ''Series/{{Chespirito}}''[[/note]] and with Chespirito's own death, he has been proven right.



* RecycledScript: Chespirito tends to wallow in this trope. Practically all the later episodes are recycled versions of earlier ones. In some cases, this was because the earliest episodes of the series were a little primitive and he decided to do a more professional re-shoot. However, by the end of the series proper, many episodes were on their third or fourth retread. And that doesn't even count the subsequent sketch-show years.
** A particular oddity was a 1974 episode about [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever an Alien baby that grows fast]] that was remade ''twice'' in 1977.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: As much of a pioneer in Latin America for its use (and overuse) of ChromaKey, whenever it was used it was ''very'' noticeable, especially when El Chapulín Colorado uses the ''Chicharra Paralizadora'' and the ''Chiquitolina'' pills. The most blatant giveaways are characters in ChromaKey having noticeably different lightning than other characters, and sometimes the green outline of the removed background could be seen.
* TearJerker: The ending of the "La función debe continuar" four-parter. After the old man finishes touring El Chapulín through the filming studio, he is convinced that the studios will remain even after being demolished because no one can destroy what was done there. El Chapulín is touched by those words, even doing a TitleDrop to point it out. It's basically the way Chespirito thanked all those films that left a mark in history. It goes even further through HarsherInHindsight, as explained above.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Although the show was fairly the same for about twenty years, some will argue that the departure of actors Ramon Valdes and Carlos Villagran roughly halfway through the show's run seriously hurt its quality. Others disliked the removal of the laugh track at about the same period of time.

Soccer ("Futbol") referees, who are described as either crooks or blind.blind. Most notably, in various episodes, there was a referee in the '''famous criminals''' section in a wax museum in one episode, El Chapulín finding another referee suspicious of being a smuggler just because of his clothes, and when La Bruja Baratuja tries to turn a woman into something disgusting, she eventually settles for a soccer referee - the woman is horrified and El Chapulín interprets it as wanting to make her blind.
** Similarly, soccer commentators, often described as being annoying or stupid. "Más pesado que un cronista de fútbol"[[note]]A {{pun}}. "Pesado" means both "heavy" and "annoying"[[/note]] is a common phrase in the series.

* ValuesDissonance: Rarer than in ElChavoDelOcho but you can easily tell that it is set in the 1970s when in an episode a man working in the house while his wife got a job is played for laughs and the plot is "resolved" once he overcomes his doctor anxiety and establishes himself as the boss in the house making the wife go back to housewife and everyone acts as if balance had been restored...and, amazingly enough, this episode was re-made in 1991 without one detail changed.
