** [[invoked]]Richieu's name in Polish was Risiyo. WordOfGod says he changed it to the French spelling [[SmallReferencePools so American readers wouldn't wonder why he had a Japanese name]].

*** Actually, Spiegelman has said that he had never seen the actual spelling until well after beginning work on 'Maus' and was just guessing, but that he probably would have changed it even if he had realised as it looked Japanese to his American eyes.

A CD-ROM version was released for Windows and Macintosh computers as ''The Complete Maus'' in North America by The Voyager Company (and in Canada by Astral Interactive) in 1994 (in both parts depending on which part is clicked on, for example, "Part I (My Father Bleeds History)" is shown as a Apple [=QuickTime=] movie file, followed by "Part II (And Here My Troubles Began)" in the same ".mov" file format as "Part I (My Father Bleeds History)"), loosely based off the comic book of the same name by Creator/ArtSpiegelman. While the CD-ROM version gained instant success, computer users learn about the Holocaust and its' effect on Jewish people such as Anne Frank during the 1940s (if installed correctly on a computer running either Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.11, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, System 7.1, System 7.5 (7.5.1 and 7.5.3), Mac OS 7.6, Mac OS 8.0, Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X).

* NotSoDifferent: François is horrified by Vladek's prejudice toward African-Americans when she picks up a black hitchhiker, during which Vladek spends the whole time sitting in the back guarding the groceries and complaining in Polish. After they drop him off, she and Vladek argue about it and she accuses him of being no different than the Nazis. Art gets them to AgreeToDisagree.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: At the end of a long monologue to Francoise, Art admits that the whole conversation never happened the way he's shown it -- "See, in ''real'' life, you would never have let me talk this long without interrupting."

* TheMasochismTango: Vladek and Mala. They fight all the time, and Vladek constantly complains about her to Art. However, when she eventually leaves Vladek, he feels even worse; Francoise comments that it was probably their fighting that kept Vladek going. Seeing his declining health, Mala eventually returns to him, because she feels sorry for him.

* MoralMyopia: Vladek suffered great hardship for being a Jew, yet he thinks nothing of being racist toward African-Americans. Francoise calls him out on this.

* InformedAttractiveness: Vladek mentions several times how handsome he was in his youth. A picture late in the second book confirms that he was a good-looking man. Vladek also notes that Lucia was more attractive than his eventual wife Anja, but he preferred her for her personality (and her money also probably helped).

* WhatTheHellHero: Vladek's stingy behavior gets him this multiple times. A truly stand out case is when Art ''explodes'' at Vladek for burning Anja's memoirs.
