* SpaceWhaleAesop: Could go in this direction from time to time, though it's almost inevitable for a LongRunner like this. Look at the second part of the 1963 example: apparently how friendly animals are to you determines how good a person you are.

Created in 1948 by Garry Cleveland Myers, "Goofus and Gallant" is a feature in ''HighlightsForChildren'' where a RightWayWrongWayPair of boys named Gallant (good) and Goofus (bad) would teach examples of what is good and bad to do, such as "Goofus bosses his friends. Gallant asks them what they want to do."

* AndThatsTerrible: Goofus' panels are often accompanied by nearby people shooting disapproving stares at him, if they're not outright glaring at him.



* StockParody: Putting them in teenage or grown-up situations is popular; while in the real thing Goofus is ''always'' on the left panel so that readers see the "wrong" and "right" way to handle a situation in that order, parodies often reverse this for better comic effect.
