YMMV / Condorito

  • Follow the Leader: Pepo created Condorito because he thought that the representation of Chile in Saludos Amigos was ridiculous.
  • Franchise Zombie: After René Ríos' death, the comic's quality plummeted really hard, then got even worse. The franchise still survives... somehow.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: While popular in his native Chile, Condorito is popular, if not even more, in Mexico, partly due to the excellent adaptation to Mexican Spanish of the comic and the many similarities of traditional Chilean culture with the Mexican one.
  • Memetic Mutation: "PLOP" (particularly on the Something Awful forums).
    • "Tome Pin y Haga Pun"
    • "Muera el Roto Quezada"
    • "¿Te gusta el chocolate caliente Condorchavo?" an infamous scene where Condorito is burned by Chuleta in a El chavo's parody, became a popular meme in the lain-spanish community
  • Nightmare Fuel: The (in)famous 72nd issue, which included a large section of incredibly gory and violent jokes, with very cruel punchlines, gruesome artwork, plenty of Black Comedy, gallons of blood... and it was done just for the hell of it.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Basically, all the comic books produced after Condorito's creator died, mostly because the artists (no longer controlled by René Ríos) began to break each and every one of the limitations imposed on them, reducing the number of panels per page from eight to merely six, etc...
  • Values Dissonance: Extremely noticeable due to the nature of the books, which are compilations of unrelated joke-based comic strips. This means there's a lot of humor based on stereotypes. If you see a member of any other race or culture that's not Chilean (leaving aside the outlandish characters that belong to their own made-up race), expect the joke to be based on mocking a stereotype or the accent. While this looks as it could be defended as a product of its time, these kinds of jokes continued well into the 2000s, only starting to fade out in the last few years.
  • We're Still Relevant, Dammit!: Some of the later jokes involve BlackBerry phones and Facebook, among other things.
