** Not any more for Headmaster, as he got demoted to PE teacher. As such his real surname got revealed: Headington.



* {{Expy}}: Number 13, a strip about a supernatural family of monsters was pretty much Series/TheMunsters. Also Kat and Kanary is pretty much Sylvester and Tweety from WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes. The character Joe Jitsu from the 00s seems to be an expy of an earlier chracter entitled Karate Sid from the 80s. Meebo and Zuky are this for [[TheSimpsons Itchy And Scratchy]].

* {{Retcon}}: In the past, Dennis and Minnie were sometimes shown in the future as a couple. Minnie's character profile on the 2016 version of Beano.com refers to her as Dennis's cousin... she also apparently has several brothers, who up to now (September 2016) have never been seen. Minnie's name was also changed from Minerva, to Hermione Makepeace. However, this can be blamed on GenerationXerox. In the old Wizard story paper serial Bash Street School, Toots was called Kate Pye. She's now Sydney Pie, which sounds exactly the same as her twin brother's name, Sidney!



**One was used leading up to the 2016 revamp. Walter's father, Mayor Wilbur Brown, manages to take over the Beano editor job. The next week, Walter and his Dad appear in most strips, ruining everyone's fun (by making Billy Whizz wear lead shoes, releasing a wild boar to stop Roger from dodging a cross country run, confiscating all of Minnie's weapons, etc) and thus, the comic, which he's trying to get closed down (he figured if it's already ruined, nobody will complain). At the end of that issue, Dennis promises the readers that the cast will fight back the next week.
**Previous story arcs were used to introduce Gnipper (and his sisters) in 1986, and Bea, Dennis's baby sister, in 1998.



* TakeThat: ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' and ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' have a friendly rivalry which often involves taking potshots at each other (e.g. characters being threatened with the possibility of getting sent to the other comic).

* TheMakeover: happened to Dennis's parents thanks to Gok Wan, and Roger's parents off panel (due to an artist change) in August 2012. Both Dads lost their outdated moustaches.

Added DiffLines:

** Taken literally as of 2014. The Three Bears and Little Plum's US desert setting is now supposedly on the outskirts of Beanotown.

** In more recent issues, James is himself one for Minnie the Minx. He loves her, but the feeling isn't mutual and she sees him as a pest.



* AmbiguouslyGay: Walter and the Softies are sometimes considered this. It was averted when he got a girlfriend, called Matilda who looks eerily similiar to Walter, in the cartoon series.
