* OnceASeason: Skeezix' birthday was noted every year, complete with a reference to his age. This tradition was eventually discontinued, likely because Skeezix' current age makes no sense within the context of the current stories.

'''''Gasoline Alley''''' is a comic strip created by Frank King and currently distributed by Creator/TribuneMediaServices. First published on November 24, 1918 as a weekly panel before becoming a full strip in 1919, it is the second-longest-running comic strip in the US and has received critical accolades for its influential innovations. In addition to inventive color and page design concepts, King introduced real-time continuity to comic strips by showing his characters as they grew to maturity and aged over generations.

* SameCharacterButDifferent: Corky's daughter Eve reappeared in the mid 2000's for the first time since the 1970's. Despite her supposed age being near 40, she was presented as a reckless teenager type who couldn't care less about her aging grandfather. There were absolutely no consequences for her behavior (that we saw, anyway), and she hasn't been back since.
** Can also apply to Slim's mom, Lil Skinner. Throughout the 1980's, she was a slightly overbearing grandmother who lived across the hall and helped take care of the kids. After a decade-long absence, she returned in 1999 as a shrewish old lady who hated Clovia (the feeling was mutual) and seemed not to care for anyone but herself.

* CanonDiscontinuity: This strip is usually very good about keeping maintaining continuity. However, one story in 1995 features Rover's birth mother telling him the back story about his father, which is completely different from the story that was told when these characters were introduced in 1981.
