Funny / Mortadelo y Filemón

Go To

This comic book would need a whole wiki to show all of its funny moments, but here are some stand out examples:

  • The 1978 FIFA World Cup special has the chapter with Mortadelo as a bus driver. It culminates at a point where Mortadelo drives the bus on a raft and uses it to cross the ATLANTIC OCEAN mistaking it for the Parana river. That chapter is one of the most remembered parts of this comic book's story.
  • "El gran sarao" had the chapter where Filemón and the Super wrongly assume that Mortadelo has turned into a Serial Killer who decapitates anybody he encounters. Amusingly enough, everything they see or find casually make it look like he is really a murderer.
    • There is a similar, ineffable scene in a different album, where Filemón's body gets absurdly tiny, almost invisible, because one of Bacterio's inventions, but his head remains the normal size. Obviously unable to stand, Filemón falls and gets knocked out. Enraged, Mortadelo picks an axe to attack Bacterio. In that moment, a completely oblivious Ofelia enters the room talking to herself: "Mortadelo and Filemón are always arguing, but it never gets that bad...". When she sees Mortadelo holding an axe, and Filemon's lifeless head on the floor, she totally freaks out.
  • At the end of "La caja de los 10 cerrojos", Mortadelo, Filemón and the Súper throw a huge box to the sea, after learning it is actually a surprise box and not a safe containing a giant diamond, which was what the three men believed and spent so much time working to find. In the next panel, it's revealed that the huge head that came out of the box contained the diamond inside after all. Some fishes comment on how excited would be the surface inhabitants if they found it.

  • In one instance, the pair has to enter the TIA offices by telling a password to a guard in the other side of the door, as usual. Filemón knocks on the door and tells the guard "Hi, it's us". Though the guard recognizes Filemón's voice, he refuses to open unless he hears the password. Filemón insists that the password is "that one", but the guard is adamant that he wants to hear it to grant the pair access. Turns out that the password is the whole Don Quixote book, that Filemón recites by heart.
