Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: The song "Susie and Jeffrey" is about a young couple getting married, the song has an eerie tone to it that implies even without the fatal car accident at the end, their relationship was doomed.

* RecycledScript: Not surprising for such a long runner. Examples include [[spoiler: a strip where the Bumsteads and the Woodleys couldn't agree on what movie to go and see and going to rent a video instead didn't solve the problem, and one where Blondie could not get herself to overcome her revulsion toward a statuette that Dagwood had bought and which was recycled at least twice with Dagwood having a similar reaction to Blondie's new hairstyle.]]

* AccidentalInnuendo: In one very old strip, Dagwood is explaining to Alexander about how to make a DagwoodSandwich, explaining what each ingredient brings to the whole. He explains to Alexander that "The sausage makes it gay". Yes Dagwood, I believe it would..... but '''''not''''' these days!
* MemeticMutation: "Don't touch that dial!" originated as a CatchPhrase that CBS announcer Hanley Stafford used to open the ''Blondie'' radio show each week.

* WeirdAlEffect: The strip started out as a parody of the many "pretty girl" melodramas (like ''Tillie the Toiler'') that spread on the funny pages during the late 20s and early 30s, but became forgotten in the ensuing decades.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: They are much more popular in the UK and Europe than they are in the US. When they started, American audiences didn't know what to make of them, feeling they were too pop for punk audiences and too punk for pop audiences, plus there was the fact that they had a female singer, which was not common at the time, and meant Blondie were basically known as 'that band with the hot singer' (especially in their CBGB days). In the UK and Europe, audiences seemed to appreciate punk, pop and other genres in equal measure. To this day, Blondie are considered the quintessential pop band in the UK, whereas they are known mainly for their hit singles ("Heart of Glass," "Rapture," etc.) and their connection to CBGB's in the US.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: So many AlternativeRock (especially in the modern PostPunk / [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] Revival) bands have been influenced by their look, attitude and their whole "Poppy, Punk-influenced Rock band with a female singer" schtick that many younger listeners may hear their music and wonder what's so special about them.
