** Taken UpToEleven in one Lonje Moco sketch, which had the Lonje Moco receiving a letter about the "true story" of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' (an ActorAllusion to the fact that Derbez voiced Donkey in the Latin American Spanish dub of ''Shrek''). Given that ''Shrek'' is considered a Fractured Fairy Tale already, this was basically a Fractured Fairy Tale of a Fractured Fairy Tale.

** A variant. In his parody of ''Series/TheXFiles'', in which Derbez played the Agent Mulder parody, he was [[SameLanguageDub dubbed over]] by [[Creator/AlfonsoObregonInclan Alfonso Obregón]], the voice actor who voiced Creator/DavidDuchovny's Agent Mulder in the Latin American Spanish dub of the show.
** He created a parody of teleovela Series/CunaDeLobos, following most of the plot, but more nonsensical. He got Maria Rubio to reprise her role as the evil matriarch of the family.

** One sketch had Derbez AsHimself supposedly interviewing Creator/SharonStone while promoting ''Film/{{Sphere}}'', using archival footage from an actual interview Stone did for the film. (HilarityEnsues when in Derbez's version the interview becomes nonsensical.) In the sketch, Stone is dubbed by the same actress who dubbed Stone in ''Sphere''.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: His sketch shows are filled to the brim with references to pop culture from the late 1990s and early 2000s, including parodies of then-current Televisa programs and personalities.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: His sketch shows are filled to the brim with references to pop culture from the late 1990s and early 2000s, including parodies of then-current Televisa programs and personalities. The fact that one of his recurring characters for a while was a parody of Music/MarilynManson (himself famous for falling out of pop culture relevance dramatically fast) attests to this.


* '''La familia P. Luche''' - One of his most long-running series, ''La familia P. Luche'' explores the life of one of Derbez's recurring characters, Ludovico P. Luche, who had previously appeared only in the sketches from the aforementioned shows. Since this one is an [[AdaptationExpansion expansion]] on a series of short sketches, plenty new material was added by necessity; bit players became fairly major characters with names and well-defined personalities and several completely new characters were added. Another noticeable change is that [[{{Flanderization}} several characters became rude and vindictive whereas previously they had merely been inept and kinda stupid;]] whether this makes the series as funny as the original sketches, funnier, or not as funny varies wildly depending on who you ask.
* '''Vecinos''' - Derbez's most recent endeavor, and the only one wherein he himself does not perform. Notable for being much more family-friendly than his other shows, all of which rely heavily on adult humor, ''Vecinos'' deals with the doings of a group of hapless people who all live together in the same high-rise. It's about as routine as [[{{Sitcom}} sitcoms]] get, the humor stemming from the various ways the characters' personalities bounce off each other. Among the cast, there's the [[DumbIsGood ignorant but well-meaning]] superintendent who [[InsistentTerminology insists on being called a "custodian"]] (as opposed to a "doorman") and used to be a [[MaskedLuchador luchador,]] a responsible office worker and his good-for-nothing slacker roomie, and a female veterinarian whose father is a retired army general who takes his teddy bear (named Franchise/{{Rambo}}) with him wherever he goes.

Eugenio González Derbez (born September 2, 1961) is a Mexican comedian who wrote, produced, and starred in a number of popular {{sketch comed|y}}ies from the late [[TheEighties '80s]] through the early [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000s]]. More recently, he's been the producer of two {{sitcom}}s, but only the star of one. He practices a style of comedy that walks an exceedingly thin line, with [[ViewersAreGeniuses sophisticated and occasionally literary humor on one side,]] [[BlackComedy and crass immaturity and scatology on the other.]] Additionally, he has an infatuation with puns that rivals that of Creator/JasperFforde; the names of many of his characters, sketches, and the titles of his shows very often make use of some sort of phonetic wordplay. For example, his sketch show ''Derbez en cuando'' is a pun on the Spanish phrase "de vez en cuando," or "every once in a while" for English-speakers.

* '''El Super Portero''' - El Super Portero is a soccer goalie-themed superhero whose job it is to make sure TV personalities don't accidentally say the name of a registered trademark on the air, forcing their producers to pay royalties.[[note]]This is a pun on how said act is informally known as "''marcar un gol''" ("scoring a goal") in Mexico.[[/note]] Since many Latin American trademarks are simply named after a specific word or phrase, El Super Portero interrupts any given broadcast more often than you think.
