* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Politicians, mainly Presidents, routinely appear in this strip, but are either depicted as meaningful icons (such as a [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton waffle]], a cartoon [[UsefulNotes/NewtGingrich bomb]], or a floating [[UsefulNotes/DanQuayle feather]]), or simply represented as speech balloons coming out of the Capitol or the White House.

The series began as a college satire (featuring nerdy Mike Doonesbury and his perpetual helmet-wearing jock roommate B.D.) in 1970; within a couple of years the main cast expanded to feature Zonker Harris (a hippie slacker), Mark Slackmeyer (left-wing radical), JJ Caucus and Barbara Ann "Boopsie" Boopstein (Mike and B.D.'s respective girlfriends), and Zonker's uncle Duke (who was a stand-in for writer HunterSThompson). While it had its genesis mocking Ivy League college life, the series found its footing when the strip expanded into full-blown political satire. B.D. joined the military (to escape having to write a term paper) and Uncle Duke got himself an ambassadorship to China, which led to him getting his own sidekick, the long-suffering Honey Huan.
