During his career he directed, wrote, produced or acted in about 50 movies and participated in numerous TV productions, including the comedy Spede Show and the game-show Speden Spelit. Spede Pasanen named Bob Hope as one his biggest comedy influences. Much of his more commercial work was in collaboration with Vesa-Matti Loiri (whose most popular character created by Pasanen was called Uuno Turhapuro; first in TV sketches and then in a long-lasting series of motion pictures) and Simo Salminen. Pasanen's films and TV shows, often made fast and inexpensively in a conveyor-belt mode, usually didn't gain much recognition from the critics but were extremely popular among Finnish audiences from the 1960s onwards. Films are produced by recording actual people and objects with cameras, or by creating them using animation techniques and/or special effects. ...

Spede Pasanen is considered emblematic of Savonian humor with a slick ironic pattern varying between the fullest extremes of understatement and hyperbole. As he himself explained: "A Savonian never tells a thing exactly like it is." Although Spede vociferously denounced elitism and explicitly sought to write and perform comedy for the largest possible audience, he was frequently the person who evinced greatest amusement at his own gags and bon mots. Savonia, Savolax or Savo, is a historical province in the south of Finland. ...


Noted for his intelligence, financial success and ability to draw in ladies, he is the idol of many who make attempt to break into the Finnish comedy scene. Despite his homely appearance, Pasanen was something of a womanizer and was almost married in 1990 to a Finnish model and Miss Finland candidate. A classic serial monogamist, he valued loyalty and friendship to the hilt, and even after separation, kept employing and financially supporting previous companions. During and after relationships, he vouchafed confidentiality and privacy for all involved in his private life. His good relations with the media might have helped with this, as outside his private sphere, he often dramatized his commercial and artistic ventures to the hilt.


Pasanen was also an inventor and jack-of-all-trades, and many of his films include Rube Goldberg-style gadgets. Besides gadgets involved with industrial production, his inventions include: Rube Goldberg Reuben Lucius Goldberg (July 4, 1883 - December 7, 1970) was a cofounder and first president of the National Cartoonists Society. ...
