Zipi y Zape are the names of two iconic Spanish comic book characters created by José Escobar Saliente in 1947, and of their eponymous strip. With Mortadelo y Filemón, they are the most popular and most translated Spanish comic books. Their name is derived from the Spanish word zipizape, meaning "turmoil" or "chaos". This word is seriously outdated though and most people under 60/70 will probably think of the comic book if you say it.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Zipi and Zape are young twin brothers who do poorly in school. Mischievous and energetic, they are fans of soccer. They are distinguished solely by their hair color: Zipi is blond, Zape black-haired. Other featured characters are their father, Mr. Pantuflo, a professor of philately and Colombophilia; their mother, the hard-pressed Mrs. Jaimita; Mr. Minervo, their strict teacher; Peloto, the teacher’s pet (and thus the twins’ enemy); Sapientín, their genius cousin, and Toby, their faithful dog. There's also Carpanta, the perpetually-hungry hobo who would do anything for some roast chicken, and his surprisingly-fat-for-a-hobo philosopher friend Protasio.Their stories are usually short, about one to eight pages long, but occasionally some are longer, about 44 or 48 pages. They are humorous, based on the twins' antics and their effects, since often they backfire spectacularly.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The popularity of Zipi y Zape has prompted the creation of derivative works, like video games, an animated TV series in 2003 — which was wrapped up with Direct-to-Video animation film Las monstruosas aventuras de Zipi y Zape in 2005 — and three live-action movies, Las Aventuras de Zipi y Zape in 1981, Zipi y Zape y el club de la canica in 2013 and Zipi y Zape y la isla del capitán in 2016.

The same happened in the first color ones. Punishments included throwing them into a lion-infested room, sending them packed into a satellite to the stratosphere, or fusing both brothers into one, so Pantuflo would always know who did all mischiefs.

Abusive Parents: Played for Laughs. Mr. Pantuflo has no trouble in brutally beating the twins or locking them in a mice infested room with no food or water. Even worse is the fact that this is seen as normal. Mr. Pantuflo, in the later Escobar strips (the ones which are mostly available), is a saint in comparison with his incarnation in the older, black and white ones, in which he punished his sons with incredibly brutal and sadistic penalties, such as crushing them with a huge steamroller, tying them to a bed of spikes with a large and scary boulder over their head or abandoning them in the middle of the sea. By far, the most disturbing of all is one strip in which Mr. Pantuflo puts them on a guillotine with a basket at the bottom to collect their severed heads.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })
