** Near the end of one episode, Chavo takes a needle and pinches Ñoño with it, causing the latter to pop like a balloon, literally. Thanks God for NegativeContinuity, 'cause otherwise Ñoño would've been KilledOffForReal.

* TheScrappy: Doña Florinda for many fans. This is the result of her mean acts towards Don Ramón, like slapping him without reason. In RealLife, Florinda Meza, who played the Dona Florinda, is disliked by many fans too. Not only is she often perceived to be the least talented of the main cast, but her tabloid fights against [[EnsembleDarkhorse Carlos Villagrán and María Antonieta de las Nieves]] don´t endear her to fans either (even if she's sometimes right). Some people say Florinda was the one who triggered the conflict between Bolaños and Villagrán which led to departure of Quico from the show and latter the departure of Ramón Valdéz. Cast member Rubén Aguirre confirmed this in his book saying Florinda influenced Bolaños in order to cause conflicts between the cast. Some of her subsequent acts only worsened this, like putting security around Bolaños' grave when not that many actually visit it.

* TooSoon:
** The Internet's reaction after Ecuadoran congresswoman Rosana Alvarado's tweeted negatively about Chespirito on the day he passed away.
** The Brazilian actress Paula Braun criticized the commotion with the death of Chespirito saying she does not understand this reaction. This quickly angered many fans which started to hit back. After all the controversy, she said it was a misunderstanding and she likes El Chavo too.

* FranchiseZombie: After the departure of Quico and Don Ramón the show substantially dropped in quality, but it still went on for approximately ten more years. The reason for this was that back in the 80's, the channel where the program aired enjoyed a virtual monopoly on the Mexican TV airwaves, making it possible to air whatever it wanted without risking much ratings.

* ValuesDissonance: Almost de rigueur, considering how old the show is. Don Ramon's hitting Chavo as part of the running gag or it being implied many times that he spanked Chilindrina. Certain episodes have everyone getting extremely disgusted when a confusion leads them to think that [[HoYay Don Ramon and Jirafales]] [[MistakenForGay were in love with each other]]. Not to mention, the show was set and videotaped in the Mexico from TheSeventies. Mexico is a ''very'' conservative society, even by Latin-American standards and it was even more back then.

* AcceptableTargets: There were also [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball football]] commentators and referees, which were the target of the odd TakeThat. Like in one episode where El Chavo and Quico are playing soccer, El Chavo allows Chilindrina to play with them as long as she plays the commentator. When Quico argues that Chilindrina knows nothing about soccer, Chavo simply replies with "Exactly!"
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In an episode of 1973 and involving Don Ramón working as a barber, the plot suddenly comes to halt near the end and, literally out of nowhere (Seriously. The scene at the time, taking place in the barber shop, quickly fades away in a very out-of-place, psychodelic way), changes to the whole cast sound and well in the neighborhood, talking about Mexico and the world's current affairs (for the time). The scene soon changes back to the previous scene in the same colorful and spiral manner.

** It is said that Quico's popularity was bigger than Chavo's. The tension provoked by this situation led to Carlos Villagran leaving the cast, followed by Ramon Valdez.

* MemeticBadass: As of lately, Latin-based * chan imageboards have taken Ron Damón (not Don Ramón, Ron Damón - based on how Chavo pronounces his name) as some sort of avatar of Mexican badassery. Just go to any * chan, write "hora de ñ" and see the Ron Damón macros ([[InternetBackdraft and racist comments]]) cascade in.
* {{Narm}}: Creator Chespirito had tendencies towards schmaltzy sentimentality and taking himself and his work way too seriously, that, although kept on check most of the time, would pop up every so often in the show's handful of more melodramatic episodes.
