Abstract In view of the paucity of research into the humour of intellectually handicapped students, a study of a classroom group of retarded adolescents was undertaken. The subjects were twelve students (mean CA = 14 years 11 months, s.d. = 0.6 months; mean PPVT MA = 4 years 9 months, s.d. = 2 years 7 months). Laughing and smiling behaviors during usual classroom activities and while watching three cartoons on a video screen were analyzed. Laughing and smiling responses were significantly correlated with mental age, and with the teacher's prediction of student responses in both situations, with the latter measure providing ecological validity to the findings.
