* MissingEpisode: Some episodes are missing worldwide, especially from 1973 season. In Brazil, some episode from older seasons which weren't lost had just one or two runs in the 80s and in the beginning of the 90s, without any rerun. Many years after, thanks for Internet, many fans discovered it. As result, they started to pressure [=SBT=] to air the "missing episodes"[[note]]This was a term used by Brazilian fans to refer to theses episodes[[/note]]. The channel responded saying most of these episodes are very dated and with some errors but since 2012 the channel started to air these "missing episodes" from the older seasons.

* 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!

** At the end of an episode, Señor Barriga got angry at Don Ramón pinching him and squashed him like in a cartoon. The fact that Don Ramón didn't move while he was squashed made him seem dead.

** Don Ramon is ''legendary'' amongst Latin Americans as the funniest character on the show, to the point of MemeticBadass status. Popular items include T-shirts with his face superimposed on Ernesto "Che" Guevara's!
** 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, soon followed by Ramon Valdez.
** La Chilindrina was and still is amazingly popular. Actress Maria Antonieta de las Nieves went on to appear as La Chilindrina in a movie, a soap opera where she guest starred for several episodes, and even had her own very successful circus.

** Played right: you can be surprised by how pretty Florinda Meza and Maria Antonieta de las Nieves really were out of their costumes of Doña Florinda and La Chilindrina. Watch them in ''ElChapulinColorado'' and be amazed.

* 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.
* 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]]. And 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.

** 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.

* 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 76. Show all.
