* TheNthDoctor: In the original sketches of La Familia Peluche, Ludovico's son, ludoviquito, was played by a kid of asian descent, in the series proper is replaced by another kid. This is "explained" by them sending Ludoviquito to Summer camp, where he hypnotized another kid to believe he is Ludoviquito Peluche so he can change homes.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.


* HilariousOuttakes: Often during the credits of his shows, often helped by Derbez' refusal to break character and on-point improvising. Consuelo Duval, who plays Ludovico P. Luche's wife, is particularly known for her fits of laughter when she forgets her lines. (Seriously, [[http://youtu.be/9rCLZZtfHNI just take a look]])

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.

* VisualPun: A lot of his sketches. But specially "Hablemos Blanco", hosted by Aaron. He says that on his show [[ExactWords he would never say any cuss word]], and starts telling a story, but while saying getting stuck in a phrase, his cousing would walk on the background holding something referencing swear word, before [[BaitAndSwitch Aaron himself continues with something completely different]].

* '''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. Invariably, the character leaves the studio after having declared the broadcast a rousing success, even though whatever was originally being said has now been bowdlerized into an utter, incomprehensible mess.

* '''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 {{Rambo}}) with him wherever he goes.
