- Fair for Its Day: Like the main page states, the series was shot right after the end of the Franco dictatorship - which had an iron-clad hold on Spanish society's morals. So the themes it treats are very conventional now, but were revolutionary in these days; i.e. divorce was almost unheard of back then, so Desi's family situation was quite polemic.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Latin Americans and Bulgarians remember the series very fondly.
- It Was His Sled: Chanquete's death almost at the end is the most iconic scene in the series. It's so well known that it was proposed as the Spanish Trope Namer for the trope itself in this very Wiki!
- Narm: While NOT uncalled for, some of the reactions to Chanquete's Death by Newbery Medal were so melodramatic that they fell into this.
- Retroactive Recognition: Juanjo Artero, who played Javi, was the most prominent cast member who developed a successful career in the following years as an adult, especially the Police Procedural series El comisario. This would become a recurring gag in Homo Zapping anytime they parodied El comisario and the caricature of Artero's character appeared onscreen.
