* There's a ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' cartoon of a bunch of scientists watching a movie featuring a caveman skeleton and the title "IT CAME FROM OLDUVAI". The caption: "Anthro horror films." This obviously refers to anthropologists, but now it would indicate [[FurryFandom something very different.]]

* Many early [[ComicStrip/TheBroons Broons]] and Oor Wullie comics had characters using the word "Gey", a now-obsolete eastern Scottish word for "Very". It wasn't unusual for characters to remark: "That's gey queer" when something odd was up! Another strip in particular had Horace refer to Gran'paw as a "Deif auld faggot", "faggot" at the time in Scotland meaning something tired and/or useless.

* 'Making love' shows up at times in ''ComicStrip/KrazyKat'', in what is probably the original sweet-talk sense, as opposed to the down-and-dirty one.
** A strip in which Ignatz's ancestor, in love with Krazy's ancestor (a queen), is apprehended by her guards: "How dare he get gay with our sainted 'Kat'!" Since [[AmbiguousGender Krazy is not consistently female]], well...
* ''ComicStrip/PrinceValiant'' also uses the phrase "making love" quite frequently.

* In a September 1937 strip of ''ComicStrip/LittleOrphanAnnie'' where Annie tells her foster parents, the Brittlewits, about three criminals who tried to kidnap her and two of her classmates we have a very nice example. What makes it extra funny is the way Mr. Brittlewit seems to be as aware of the trope as the readers are.
--> '''Annie:''' It was a snatch, all right. They tried to grab us all.
--> '''Mr. Brittlewit:''' What language! Is that what you learn in school?
* The eponymous dog in the early 1908 comic written by Margaret Hays that ran in the Boston Herald Sunday comics section, ''Jennie and Jack, also the Little Dog Jap'', has a name that would be considered a slur these days.
** "Jap" back then was a moderately common name, a variant on "Jaap", a diminutive Dutch form of Jacob.
