Added DiffLines:

** One early strip had Darryl bringing home a large box of crayons and coloring books, only for Wanda to scold him because Zoe (then still a baby) was too young for crayons; the joke being Darryl responding "Who said they were for her?" Nowadays, coloring books marketed specifically for adults are very much a thing.

** The title of the comic's eighth book, "One More and We're Outnumbered!", has become this with the introduction of Wren.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: One strip that took place early in Bunny's second pregnancy had her pointing out how big her stomach was getting, and exclaiming "I think it might be twins!" (the joke being that her stomach still looked relatively flat). A few months later, Bunny revealed that she actually ''was'' having twins (and then her stomach really ''did'' get a lot bigger, much to Wanda and Yolanda's amusement).

* BrokenBase: Some people who weren't familiar with the strip thought it was a decent show in it's own right, while others that grew up with the strip disliked it for how much it changed the story to the point where it barely even resembled the original strip.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Zoe poking Wanda [[EyeScream in the eye]] with a tongue depressor, trying to amputate her, and giving her a shot in the butt while playing Doctor? Terrible. Zoe commenting it means she wins? Hysterical!

* EnfantTerrible: All of the kids have their moments but middle child and only boy Hammie really sticks out. He intentionally seeks out destructive activities, goes out of the way to prank Zoe (though she dishes it right back at him), grosses out anyone in range of him, pesters people constantly, and doesn't think twice about the consequences. Zoe is starting to branch out of this stage and Wren is still too young to settle firmly into it.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Let this be a lesson to all TV executives out there: Adapting a family-friendly comic strip with a huge fanbase, making it a HotterAndSexier ''Simpsons'' clone, shoehorning in a new cast who [[SpotlightStealingSquad takes the lion's share of the plot at the MacPhersons' expense]], making Zoe a baby, even though she was a toddler in the strip at the time and Hammie had just been born, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking putting it on a mediocre channel like The WB]] is '''''NOT''''' going to win over audiences.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: In a couple early strips, Wanda was shown to be a fan of Mel Gibson (or rather, [[MrFanservice his buns]]). Obviously, this was before Gibson's first anti-Semetic rant incident.
