* MethuselahSyndrome: [[PlotArmor By virtue of being the main character]], Walt at 115 would be the third-oldest living person (and the oldest living man) in the world if he were actually alive, and he's likely not going away anytime soon. The current writer writer of the strip has stated that he does have plans for this issue; ''what'' plans, however, he isn't saying.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Averted. Walt is over 110 years old (Phyllis was 105 when she passed away in 2004) and Skeezix is now more than 90. While some characters have, the most popular and important characters will probably never get around to actually dying, but characters who were young in the RoaringTwenties are ancient now and characters who were introduced as children have families of their own.

* DiscoDan: Avery, Walt's original neighbor, was this half a decade before disco even took off; his defining trait was that he still used a crank car after everyone else had moved on to cars with starters.
