* FanonDiscontinuity: For some fans, any episode after the departure of Quico and Don Ramón. For some others, any episode starting from the 1980 season, where SeasonalRot hits the show hard.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedVillain: Señor Barriga in the episodes which he tries to evict Don Ramón. Everyone, including ''Doña Florinda'' treats him with disdain, even though it's Don Ramón's own fault that he doesn't want to work and didn't pay over 14 months of rent.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Woolseyism}}: The reason why El Chavo is so popular in Brazil is partially due to the amazing job done by the dubbing company, who many agree has improved over the original script. This is coupled with the fact that many Mexican productions back in the day used to be imported with a dubbing that was either mediocre or just plain bad.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Don Ramón is a [[BornUnlucky unlucky man]] which is struggling in a unfair world or he is just a lazy jerk which is lucky to have a house to live(thanks for Señor Barriga) and has no job due his own errors? Maybe both?

* TheWoobie: Chavo is this sometimes, mainly in the episode where him is mis-blamed for theft, ostracized by everyone and leaves temporarily. It traumatised several generations: seeing everyone calling him a thief at his face is pretty hard to watch.
** Don Ramón qualifies as one too; his wife died while giving birth to Chilindrina, leaving him alone to take care of her, and while lazy, every time he gets a new job the kid's antics and his unusual bad luck end up getting in the way, leaving him unsuccessful and with even more debts. Let's also add all the times Doña Florinda hits him unfairly or even gets him so badly hurt he needs to go to the hospital.

*** Interestingly, while there indeed are implications that the characters are averse to the idea of a same sex romance, there's not much of an actual acknowledgement of this as a defined concept; instead, the main issue when this situation arises is Doña Florinda and Doña Cleotilde's jealousy, which isn't really handled much differently than when the men are lusting after Gloria or some other woman.



*** The cigar is a prop and is never lit, so the case could be made that he simply likes to chew on it.

* HarsherInHindsight:
** All sad scenes involving El Chavo became much more bitter after the death of Chespirito.
** Some characters conflicts become real with the actors. Notable examples are La Chilindrina vs Doña Florinda (María Antonieta de las Nieves vs Florinda Meza) and for a long time El Chavo vs Quico (Chespirito vs Carlos Villagrán).

** Don Ramón killing Donã Florinda's cat just for thinking it was eating his fishes (and La Chilindrina tried the same in the remake) and El Chavo accidentally killing Quico's cat just to avoid to crash into Professor in the streets (and showing no remorse or sadness for that). Considering the modern times pets (especially cats and dogs) became UnacceptableTargets (although in both of cases their actions are viewed as wrong during these episodes).
