* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: A lot of characters from its early years have all but disappeared: Barney's wife divorced him shortly after the strip began, and his black valet and his ostrich Rudy were written off after Barney left the big city.
* CommutingOnABus: Barney puts in a very occasional reappearance, though. He appeared for a week in 2012, after having not been seen for ''fifteen years''; this was {{lampshade|hanging}}d by the sheriff asking him if he was an Internet entrepreneur.

'''''Snuffy Smith''''' is a long-running newspaper comic about a hillbilly community. It originally began in 1919 as ''Barney Google'', about a diminutive sportsman involved primarily in horse races. The strip reached mainstream popularity in TheRoaringTwenties with the introduction of Barney's horse Spark Plug; The strip sparked a trend for continuity-laden comics such as 'Toots and Casper'' and ''Tillie the Toiler'', while "Sparky" became a popular nickname for boys (including future cartoonist [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charles Schulz]]), and a song about the title character and his "goo-goo-googly eyes" became a smash hit in 1923.
