* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: JC Dithers is technically in the construction business, but it's barely referred to at all. Lampshaded in recent years- [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LpSaZ0EVYcU/UqeUYoPCaDI/AAAAAAAAENM/SVdgVk55Dds/s1600/131121+Blondie.PNG one strip had Dithers and Dagwood interviewing a potential new hire]. He promptly asks them what business they're in- he isn't sure if it's construction or something else. After he leaves, Dithers and Dagwood promptly conclude that he "asked way too many questions".

* WrongInsultOffence: [[MeanBoss Mr. Dithers]] takes [[http://blondie.com/todays_strip/ offense when]] someone claims he runs his company "almost like a dictatorship", when he clearly runs it "''exactly'' like one.

Derivative works include a series of comedy films (and long-running radio series) starring Arthur Lake and Penny Singleton, two single-season sitcoms (produced in 1957 and 1968), and two animated TV specials in the late 80s (from Marvel productions, who had worked with King Features earlier on ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'').

* RecycledScript: Not surprising for such a long runner. Examples include a strip where the Bumsteads and the Woodleys couldn't agree on what movie to go and see and going to rent a video instead didn't solve the problem, and one where in an earlier version, Blondie could not get herself to overcome her revulsion toward a statuette that Dagwood had bought and which was recycled at least twice with Dagwood having a similar reaction to Blondie's new hairstyle.
