** Bill the Cat was also originally intended to be a one-shot character, the joke being that they were trying to pass off a completely unmarketable character as the next {{ComicStrip/Garfield}}. He has since become nearly as iconic as Opus.

Eventually Berke Breathed ended the strip because he was tired of it and segued into a new one, ''Outland'', a Sunday-only striip whch ran from 1989 to 1995. Many of the regulars of ''Bloom County'' eventually leached back into that strip, as they later did again with Breathed's second Sunday-only strip ''Opus'', which ran from 2003 to 2008.

* AcceptablePoliticalTargets: Few targets are considered unacceptable, but Donald Trump is one of Breathed's favorite targets. He has said publically that Trump's Presidential campaign was the biggest reason for the reboot, as it was ''much'' to big a temptation.

** Two of Breathed's real-life BerserkButtons - people taking advantage of handicapped parking spaces and mimes - receive brutal takedowns. The latter, in particular, are the focus of Opus' wrath when he becomes the "Olive Loaf Vigilante."
