** The "big dog that stole Hobbes" arc predated the baby raccoon arc, and was the first thing to really open sentimentality into the strip, setting the stage for baby raccoon.

It also let Watterson know that the readers were connecting with the characters as he began receiving letters from fans who were worried about Hobbes before the story even resolved.

Added DiffLines:

* For the first few years, ''ComicStrip/{{Fox Trot}}'' was just a funnier, quirkier version of the typical family gag strip with several of the cliches (Older brother's eating habits, daughter's ditzy behavior, father's cluelessness, etc.) turned UpToEleven. And then, in 1989, Jason dressed up as Batman to go see the new film, introducing the film's pop culture awareness and geek sensibility that would eventually come to dominate the strip.

* ''{{Doonesbury}}'' was originally about a group of kids in college for the first decade or so of its run. Gary Trudeau took a 2-year hiatus and then began drawing the strip again, developing the art style and real-time storyline that the strip is known for today.

* For its first month and a half, ''{{Garfield}}'' was centered on the titular cat and Jon. The introductions of Lyman and Odie made the strip one of the most familiar to many readers.

* Berke Breathed acknowledged that ''BloomCounty'' didn't really take off until Opus, Binkley and Milo became the central focus. He admitted that early on, he didn't know what direction to take the strip (leading to a massive RetCon of nearly the ''entire first year and a half''), and that he often cribbed ''Doonsebury'' in the earliest strips.

* ''[[SallyForthHoward Sally Forth]]'' started out as a prosaic 'liberated wife/mother in the workplace' strip, until Francesco Marciuliano was hired as writer, putting a cheerfully goofy-yet-grounded spin on things.

* ''CalvinAndHobbes'' opened up emotionally with the baby raccoon arc. It opened up creatively with the transmogifier arc.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/ThePerishers'' initially featured strong artwork and occasionally funny jokes, but was marred by generic characters and an over-reliance on {{Running Gag}}s and cutesy moments. This changed when initial writer Ben Witham was dismissed and replaced by Maurice Dodd, who fine-tuned the strip's humour and made it ten times better in the process.
