* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The [=GoComics=] website only goes back to 1996 so the only way to read any comics from before that year is to buy the first five treasuries. These books are becoming harder to find.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Done in one strip, where the family's [=iFruit=], while in Sleep Mode, has lascivious dreams about "Ms. VideoGame/TombRaider". Since Amend is OneOfUs as noted below (and even did a strip where Lara Croft showed up in Jason's dreams), this was presumably done on purpose for the benefit of readers who didn't know Croft by name, only as "that big-breasted chick from the video games".

** There was a 2005 strip that had Jason putting a picture of Paige on Wikipedia's warthog page. In Amend's collection, ''The Best of FoxTrot'', he said that someone actually really uploaded a picture of Paige on the warthog page.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: In later comics, Jason takes a liking to things that are relatively new (Tomb Raider, Game of Thrones) when in early comics he would be nerding over 80's-90's stuff, like the (then) brand new Super Nintendo.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: The earliest strips (before the iFruit) showed the family using early Apple computers and Roger admitting he had absolutely ''no idea'' how to use a computer, period, and ignoring it when one was actually added into his office. Nowadays, people will probably view that as TooDumbToLive, but in the 80s, that's not as stupid as you might think - some middle-aged people in the 80s never actually ''did'' use home computers, and not all industries pretty much ''required'' them. This was before Roger came from BumblingDad to flat out TooDumbToLive.
** Also played straight in a January 1993 strip where Jason dreams that he found a Macintosh Quadra 950 with 64 ''mega''bytes of RAM and 230-''mega''byte hard drive as a Christmas present he forgot to open.

** In 1996, Amend created a "Slug-Man" video game as Jason Fox and put it on his website. It was a re-skinned version of ''Glypha III'', a ''VideoGame/{{Joust}}'' clone for the AppleMacintosh.
