* SpiritualSequel: MANY people have noted the physical similarities between Frazz and [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]], the [[BrilliantButLazy similar personalities]], the general feel of the comic, the fact that Frazz shares several hobbies with Calvin's dad, and (most importantly) Mallet's art style being nearly indistinguishable from that of Bill Watterson. Though every theory has been {{Jossed}} to death - that Mallet IS Watterson, that Mallet intended for Frazz to be a sequel/alt-continuity to ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes - most fans, regardless, consider it a very-fitting, even if accidental, spiritual successor to Watterson's MagnumOpus.

Added DiffLines:

* SubvertedPunchline: In [[http://www.gocomics.com/frazz/2016/01/10http://www.gocomics.com/frazz/2016/01/10 this comic]], Frazz makes a reference to a song by Music/TheWho without saying the name of the band, hoping that Caulfield will ask the question of "Who?" as in "who wrote it?" He goes for proper grammar instead and asks "whom?"

* Caulfield - an eight-year-old kid who regularly challenges Frazz and Mrs. Olsen with his literary insights. He's smart, but tends to get detention because it doesn't challenge him. Caulfield chooses a literature-themed costume every Halloween and regularly stumps the teachers.

* KidsPreferBoxes: Caulfield thinks it's great that while he has broken half his toys, he still has all these empty boxes for his cat. Indeed, he spent most of Christmas vacation juggling the cat from box to box.

* ScantronPicture: [[BrilliantButLazy Caulfield]] does this as a RunningGag. He uses the dots to write out music notes, and later recreates the Mona Lisa.

** In one comic, Frazz and Caulfield are talking about standardized tests, and Frazz tells Caulfield that he once took a test that had bubbles from A to G. On its side, it's basically a blank piece of sheet music.
