* FollowTheLeader: It can be suspected that Armstrong tried to replicate the ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} formula with a baby, as both strips' title characters share aspects: Orange hair/fur, overweight, communication via thought bubbles, etc.
** The strip also seems to have started aping the comedy of ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', such as imagine spots that start with a monster/disaster and end with Marvin doing something to imitate it, a furry four-legged companion that makes comments and walks on his hind legs, childlike observations about things that his parents do, and the occasional renaming of the comic to Marvin and Bitsy even when Bitsy isn't present.

* OverlyLongGag: The infamous "Belly Laffs" arc, in which most of 2 weeks of strips had the same punchline of "You know you're pregnant because you're fat."
