In the [[TheSeventies 1970s]] (the age of ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' and the E.R.A.), [[FairForItsDay a comic about a single young woman trying to make a career was new and innovative]]. The strip was extremely popular in its heyday, with many women readers readily identifying with the title character as she dealt with common problems of modern single life. A rumor in the 1980s that she was finally going to marry her on-again, off-again boyfriend Irving sparked a lot of fan backlash from single women who didn't want to lose this character they could relate to. (Cathy finally ''did'' marry Irving in 2005, and the final strip in 2010 featured the announcement that Cathy was pregnant with a girl.)

* ArtEvolution: And how; the strip's artwork was insanely crude in its first couple of years; it wasn't until the early 80s that Guisewite's drawing skills became passable.

** Oddly, Cathy is also the only one with full eyes, ie pupils, whites, lids, etc. All others just have BlackBeadEyes, occasionally topped with a line.

* {{Gonk}}: Cathy herself, drawn with oversize eyes, stringy hair, and [[TheNoseless no nose]]. She remarks that the only people who've ever called her attractive have been trying to sell her things.
