* CharacterBlog: Or at least a parody of one. During a plotline about Mayor Dalton's battle with prostate cancer, it is eventually revealed that the Mayor's ''prostate'' has a "Pacebook page" with over 2,000 pals. This led to a fan of TheComicsCurmudgeon creating a real-life Facebook page.

* ChildProdigy: Sarah ''frequently'' reasons circles around the adults in her life. One 2013 story arc concerns her selling a museum on publishing a book of her art, and she's just five or six.

''Rex Morgan, M.D.'' is one of three American newspaper soap opera strips created by psychiatrist Dr. Nicholas P. Dallis, who later created ComicStrip/JudgeParker and ComicStrip/Apartment3G. Writing under the pseudonym of Dal Curtis, the strip began it's 60 plus year run in 1948. The strip centers around the titular doctor, who began the strip by moving into the fictional small town of Glenwood to take over the medical practice of a late friend. Dallis created the strip with the goal of distributing modern medicine to the public in a format they'd find easy to read. In keeping with this, most of the plots dealt with the medical and emotional problems of his patients, which often tackled contemporary health needs of the time. Rounding out the regular cast is June Morgan (nee Gale), Rex's nurse (whom he dated for 47 years before ''finally'' marrying her in 1995), their precocious daughter, Sarah, and their dog Abbey. The family now operates their own free clinic.
