Added DiffLines:

Unusually for a comic strip, Toomey (with the exception of most Sunday strips) eschews the typical gag-a-day format and prefers longer story-arcs that last at least a week.

* MisplacedWildlife: Thornton the polar bear, oh so very much. Freshwater animals often pop up in the lagoon, and the characters sometimes swim in freshwater.

* WeirdnessMagnet: The entire lagoon; it's been attacked by swarms of obscure sea-life, a JamesBond villain once tried to blow it up, not to mention that the Loch Ness Monster has used it as a vacation site once or twice. At one point, Filmore, in the face of another attack, asks what drives most of these things to "head their way."

Added DiffLines:

** Sherman was once put back on hold by a customer service hotline because although he'd been waiting for days worth of strips, he'd only been waiting for a few hours of story time.

Added DiffLines:

* InterspeciesFriendship: One of the central themes of the strip, although Megan blatantly hints that the only reason why she and Sherman haven't eaten their friends is because other options are plentiful in the lagoon.
