While ''La Caravana'' [[ShortRunner only last 5 years]], it's impact in both Mexican culture and television is still felt to this day, two decades after the end of the show. In fact, Victor Trujillo, one of the actors (and creators) of the show, decided to revive some of the original concept of the original show with both ''El Mañanero'' (When Brozo becames a journalist, but without losing his acid sense of humor) and it's successor: ''El Notifiero'' (who is practically ''La Caravana'' [[RecycledInSpace IN TELEVISA]] or at least, only the characters played by Trujillo himself alone, without the need of Ausencio Cruz).

There's a spinoff DirectToVideo film starring both Trujillo and Cruz which was done after the end of the show at 1991, named ''La verdadera historia de Barman y Droguin'' (The True Story of Barman and Droguin), which is a parody of ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' and it was the last time both actors worked together before going to separate ways

** IronButtMonkey: No matter how many times he loses, Margarito always returns to the show, even if it's implied to be rigged.



* CurseCutShort: ''El Charro Amarillo'' always changes his offensive lyrics with non-offensive stanzas at the last second. Averted later when he becomes an AscendedExtra.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The whole point of ''La Pirinola'' is to make Margarito to lose in the most humillating way possible for him, no matter what.

* ''Valente Campillo'': Ausencio Cruz stars this sketch as a walking stereotype of the Mexican {{Badass}} (or macho) and dressed as a Mexican charro. Most of his topics deals how manly a man should be and how women should StayInTheKitchen... with the sole exception of his [[MommasBoy mother, the only woman who can boss him around, at least in his home]].

La Caravana (Spanish for ''The Caravan'') was a Mexican sketch comedy/VarietyShow (more or less in the same vein of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'') from 1988 to 1992 who was broadcasted in Imevision (TV Azteca's former name when it was state-owned in the eighties) starring Victor Trujillo (more famous by his character Brozo, who is technicaly an AscendedExtra from that show) and Ausencio Cruz (whose famous character, [[ButtMonkey Margarito Perez]] was his most popular character and [[OneSceneWonder the only role he's still know to this date]].

* '''Los Reos''' ''(The Prisoners)'': The sketch begins when two jailed prisoners (Trujillo and Cruz) start talking about their personal tastes. The prisoner played by Trujillo is [[TransparentCloset heavily implied to be gay]] and he tries to hit with the other prisoner (played by Cruz), but that prisoner always responds angrily with '''¡YA TE DIJE QUE NO ME MIRES CON ESOS OJOS!'''[[note]]I said stop looking at me like that![[/note]]

* '''Estetoscopio''': This sketch stars Victor Trujillo as the titular character Estetoscopio Medina Chaires, a walking, exaggerated version of the Mexican lower-class guy, who always tell to the audience about his life or about his son, who never appears on-screen. Since is implied he and his family are really dumb, HilarityEnsues each time they try to do or see something unusual, like watching a solar eclipse.

* '''Los Cuentos de Brozo''' ''(Brozo's Tales)'': The [[AscendedExtra character who made Victor Trujillo famous]]: a really [[MonsterClown ugly, foul-mouthed, sex-crazed, mysoginistic clown]] who loved to tell famous tales, ''with a Mexican twist.'' After his original show was cancelled, Trujillo revived the character, this time as a journalist clown who loves to make fun of the most recent news and sometimes making fun of celebrities and politicians.

* '''El Charro Amarillo''' ''(The Yellow Charro)'': In this sketch, Victor Trujillo stars as the titular charro who sings ranchero songs who always ended being [[CurseCutShort changed by him at the last part of the stanza]].

* '''La Pirinola''' ''(roughly translated as The Spinning Dice)'': Maybe the most memetic part of the show, along with Brozo. In this sketch Victor Trujillo star as Johnny Latino, a showman from the titular GameShow ''La Pirinola''[[note]]named after a famous Mexican spinning dice of the same name, used in many child games in Mexico.[[/note]] and Ausencio Cruz as ''[[ButtMonkey Margarito Perez]]'' a dumber, lower-class dude who it seems to be the only regular contestant of that show.
