** In one instance, the pair has to enter the TIA offices by telling a password to a guard in the other side of the door, as usual. Filemón knocks on the door and tells the guard "Hi, it's us". Though the guard recognizes Filemón's voice, he refuses to open unless he hears the password. Filemón insists that the password is "that one", but the guard is adamant that he wants to hear it to grant the pair access. Turns out that the password is the whole ''DonQuixote'' book, [[PhotographicMemory that Filemón recites by heart]].

** There are some light puns on black characters, always PlayedForLaughs:
*** In some stories, black athletes' sweat is black.
***A particular joke on a series of cyclists said: "This one is red with anger, this one is green with envy, this one is yellow with liver problems, this one is black with... well, with his being from Tanzania, obviously..."
***In an old short story, Mortadelo and Filemón are asked to scort a young African prince back to his country, after he has finished his studies in Spain. During the flight, the child causes trouble around the plane, and the stewardess asks Mortadelo, "Are you traveling with a boy of color?". Mortadelo calmly answers, "It depends. Which color?".

** And in Denmark (as ''Flip & Flop''). Ibanez even made a story set in Copenhagen in honor of his Danish fans, featuring the Little Mermaid Statue as a main character.

** "El gran sarao" had the chapter where Filemón and the Super wrongly assume that Mortadelo has turned into a SerialKiller who decapitates anybody he encounters.
** At the end of "La caja de los 10 cerrojos", Mortadelo, Filemón and the Súper throw a huge surprise box to the sea. In the next panel, it's revealed that the huge head that came out of the box contained an equally huge diamond inside, which was what the three men spent so much time working to find. Some fishes comment on how excited would be the surface inhabitants if they found it.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In the animated series equivalent to La Venganza de Tengoo-Pis, Filemón accidentally squashes a policeman's nose between two bricks (ItMakesSenseInContext), so the cop starts hitting him with his nightstick. This is just like the comic book, but at that moment the series deviates from it. Seeing that Filemón is being defenselessly beaten, Mortadelo turns into a dog and tries to disarm the cop, managing to free Filemón. The two TIA agents then brawl with the cop and get the upper hand by pulling his ear and flattened nose, and then they stretch and strecht (with the poor guy screaming in a truly creepy way) until there is an explosion filling the camera and the scene cuts to Mortadelo and Filemón laughing. The incident is never explained or mentioned, and the spectator only gets the gruesome implication, rather out of context for the series's level of violence, that they ''ripped out'' his ear and nose.

* EthnicScrappy: Black people are usually portrayed as relatively sane, civilized and well articulate. However, [[UnfortunateImplications they are drawn like in a 1930's cartoon]]. Chinese people are a different matter - They are both drawn, and act, like in 1930's cartoons! Even Chinese space program engineers are portrayed as buckteethed gnomes who talk (and eat) [[YouNoTakeCandle flied lice]]!

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The 1978 FIFAWorldCup special has the chapter with Mortadelo as a bus driver. It culminates at a point where Mortadelo drives the bus on a raft and uses it to cross the [[RuleOfFunny ATLANTIC OCEAN]] [[EpicFail mistaking it for the Parana river]]. That chapter is one of the most remembered parts of this comic book's story.

** This is mostly due of a case of ValuesDissonance. Albeit still present, racism is not nearly as big in Spain as in other countries, so this portrayals are seen mostly as PlayedForLaughs.
