* BigNo - [[http://www.daisyowl.com/comic/2010-04-20 Here]], when Steve realizes that he just accidentally [[spoiler: initiated an ''orphanage's'' self-destruct sequence]].
* BoringButPractical - Cooper realises that a real dinosaur would be very hard to take care of and prefers to have toys. Also brooms are apparently the ideal space weapon because of a lack of bullets to create air leaks or edges to cut your suit on. The perfect weapon and quiet too.
* CasualDangerDialog - After Steve's BigNo, he tries desperately to fix the problem...and one of the people he's theoretically just sentenced to death comes along and fixes the problem in less than a minute, mocking Steve for shouting random gibberish at a computer.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn - Compare Steve's initial apearance to how he behaves now; they're completely different.
* ChildrenRaiseYou - Played with - the children [[spoiler: fell out of the sky one day]], but Mr. Owl was fairly mature already, has maintained his slightly immature interests, and they seem to have done absolutely no matchmaking for him. [[http://www.daisyowl.com/comic/2009-09-03 They do make him go to the vet]], which could be construed as "raising" him.
* CrazyPrepared - NASA is running a Space School to train grown Space Babies to fight invading aliens. They don't know of any invading aliens- or any aliens at all- yet, but better safe than sorry.
* DepartmentOfChildDisservices - DSS would take Daisy and Cooper away from a [[NiceGuy perfectly lovely father]] just because he's an owl who lives in a treehouse and doesn't wear any clothes, ''but'' they never find out even though he meets with Daisy's principal.

* ScheduleSlip - Once due to the author going on a trip, and now happening indefinitely.
** The last one went up on ''June 3rd 2010.'' Driscoll has stated that [[http://www.cracked.com/forums/index.php?topic=35472.msg1583185#msg1583185 the comic started to seem too much like a chore to him to enjoy it.]] But he also has said that he isn't necessarily done with it, either.

[[http://www.daisyowl.com/ Daisy Owl]] is a comic strip by Ben Driscoll that began in 2008. It is slightly similar to both ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' and ''{{Achewood}}'' with its often light, whimsical humor and simple grayscale line art.

Currently undergoing pretty extreme ScheduleSlip -- there hasn't been a new comic since June 2010, when Driscoll stopped with no warning at the beginning of a new a storyline, as well as deleting the entire comment section on every strip. After fan inquiry in the Cracked.com forums (where the strip had initially gained popularity), [[http://www.cracked.com/forums/topic/35472/daisy-owl/1860 Driscoll announced]] that cartooning professionally turned it from something he ''wanted'' to do into something he ''had'' to do, and he had gone back to being a programmer. He said that he will wants to continue the comics in the future, but the ongoing lack of Daisy Owl is making the fanbase rather sad.
