** Several stories are modified in some form on more recent republishings, with such modification as removing firearms (even toy guns - one instance had Junior appparently shooting water from his finger, and another infamous one had a mobster's tommy gun replaced with a ''lobster''), changing dialogue to replace objectionable terms and mild cursing with softer synonyms (such as "azar" - bad luck - and "droga" - darn it), physical punishment from the kids' parents, even if implied, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking rewriting Jimmy's thought bubbles so they don't contain the misspellings of when he talks]]. Also, some dialogue in Chuck Billy's stories is also rewritten to keep the accent consistent.

** A 1990s Smudge story which parodies the Literature/SinbadTheSailor stories, much to his disgust (since he has to, you see, ''sail'' all the time), ends with him cutting off the narrator just as he starts going on about Smudge's next adventure (which would be Sinbad's third travel) and writting "End" at the bottom of the panel (with only one extra panel for denouement).

** One amusing 3 letter panel had Jimmy and Smudge running away from Monica only for Jimmy to smile and suddenly stop after seeing the "End" graphic at the corner... of the second panel. The third panel shows a beat up Smudge berating whoever made that mistake.

* TheOneWhoWearsShoes: Jimmy Five is the only one among the four main characters.

to:

* OffToSeeTheWizard: Made in graphic novel format, although it's not so much a parody as it is a retelling with the Monica's Gang flavor, complete with the musical numbers and all other tropes the format entails.
* TheOneWhoWearsShoes: Jimmy Five is the only one among the four main characters. Shoes are much more frequent with background characters, with only Sunny and Hummer consistently appearing barefoot.

* TookALevelInDumbass: Maggy, strangely enough, is portrayed as a total dumbass when she's not eating in some of early 2000s stories written by Flavio. The reason behind this is unknown and a complete OutOfCharacterMoment, since Maggy is commonly portrayed as one of the smartest characters of the gang.

* HairyHammerspace: Fluff, Jimmy's dog. It's not uncommon for people to hide there (an ''entire police troop'' once got lost in his fur trying to catch a robber who his in there), or plenty of things to be found in his fur.

** It's become frequent in every one of their recent movie parody stories. Name a feature, and a panel full of characters that fit it will appear soon enough. [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ljlh4hK1UQ1qbnzf6o1_500.jpg This panel]], for example, [[ReferenceOverdosed is so ridiculous]], what's awkward about it is ''not'' finding people like VideoGame/MegaMan (who only appears in one of the following panels) among all the blue people. [[http://tinyurl.com/d7m6o27 And here's another shameless panel.]] It doesn't even need to be with characters: the ''Film/IronMan1'' parody had a panel full of trophies (right after the award ceremony scene at the beginning), and the ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' one had a panel full of shields.
