Dejémonos de vainas was a long-running Colombian sitcom, created by Daniel Samper Pizano and broadcast weekly between 1983 and 1998. Bernardo Romero Pereiro scripted and directed some episodes.

The show, which depicted a "typical" middle-class family in Bogotá, was loosely based on Samper Pizano's own life. The protagonist, Juan Ramón Vargas, is a sports journalist working for El Clima (a spoof of El Tiempo), and lives with his wife, Renata, and his three children.
