* HilariousInHindsight: In "Los Tronadores", El Chavo shouts: "I would rather be dead than to lose my life!"[[note]]In Spanish: "¡Primero muerto antes que perder la vida!"[[/note]] The irony comes from the fact that in some of the Latin-American gaming communities, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBrothers Mario's 1-ups]] [[https://ehmato.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/prefiro-morrer-do-que-perder-a-vida.jpg are called "lives"]].

** In "El Cumpleaños de Don Ramón", the titular character starts feeling bad for some unknown reason, and other characters don't want to tell him anything. El Chavo accidentally telling him wrong facts only made him feel much worse; turns out, Don Ramón forgot his own birthday, and the other characters were planning a surprise party. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E25PartyOfOne A certain pink pony would relate to him over 30 years later]].


** Why does Quico never tell his mom what really happened and lets her punish Don Ramón for things that are rarely his fault? Is he just [[TooDumbToLive too dumb to realise what's going on]]? Does he truly dislike Don Ramón [[HiddenEvil and enjoys seeing him beaten]]? Is it that he sees how his mother dislikes him and [[MommasBoy gives her reasons to hit him]]? Maybe he simply doesn't care? Or perhaps it's plain simple [[RuleOfFunny rule of funnny]].

** At the end of an episode, Señor Barriga got angry at Don Ramón pinching him and squashed him like in a cartoon. The fact that Don Ramón didn't move while he was squashed made him seem dead (the very last scene of said episode has La Chilindrina crying over him, which only makes it worse).

** Don Ramón killing Doña Florinda's cat just for thinking it was eating his fishes (and La Chilindrina tried the same in the remake) and El Chavo accidentally killing Quico's cat just to avoid to crash into Professor in the streets (and showing no remorse or sadness for that). Considering the modern times pets (especially cats and dogs) became UnacceptableTargets (although in both of cases their actions are viewed as wrong during these episodes).

* TheScrappy: Doña Florinda (Mrs. Worthmore) for many fans. This is the result of her being a {{Jerkass}} to everyone (except Quico and Jirafales) in the neighborhood, specially to Don Ramón, whom she usually slaps for "supposedly" abusing her son (without even giving him a chance to explain himself). And by proxy, Professor Jirafales every time he decides to join her.

* DesignatedMonkey: Don Ramón is ''always'' punished unfairly, with extremely rare exceptions, for doing the right thing like saving Quico from El Chavo and is often [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished "rewarded"]] with a slap to his face, a punch to his gut, being hospitalized and having his personal objects stolen. The level of abuse he goes through on the show is almost sadistic.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: While generally a well-liked character, El Chavo crosses this territory sometimes, when he causes mayhem for the other characters and gets away scott-free while someone, mostly Don Ramón, is framed for his antics (trough it's usually Quico who provokes El Chavo first).


* MemeticBadass: As of lately, Latin-based * chan imageboards have taken Ron Damón (not Don Ramón, Ron Damón - based on how Chavo pronounces his name) as some sort of avatar for Mexican badassery. Just go to any * chan, write "hora de ñ" and see the Ron Damón macros ([[InternetBackdraft and racist comments]]) cascade in.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsShortSoItSucks: A major complaint about the cartoon adaptation is that it tried to adapt one-hour long stories or even entire arcs into episodes that last just under 30 minutes. As a result, entire plots are slashed off or left hanging, with the more infamous examples being the Churros episode, where Ramon doesn't even get to sell Florinda's treats like he proposed in the beginning of the episode, or the Acapulco arc, which had most of its jokes excised in favour of making an original, extended DreamSequence.
