* BrokenBase: Should Cathy and Irving have ever married? On one hand, Cathy's shtick back in TheSeventies and TheEighties was that she was a single working woman - and that marrying Irving was CharacterDerailment. On the other, some feel that the sheer amount of WillTheyOrWontThey was [[ArcFatigue going way too long]]. (For decades) and the amount of back-and-forth was just annoying, and that them ''finally'' tying the knot gave the strip some much needed progress.

* WhatAnIdiot: In one strip, Cathy somehow managed to use ''laundry detergent'' instead of ''shampoo''. [[FlatWhat How?]]

* ArcFatigue: How some feel Cathy and Irving's relationship. Some think that it should have ended in ''some'' way ''years'' before they finally tied the knot.

* FairForItsDay: As mentioned below, the premise is fairly generic today - a day in the life of a single working woman, HilarityEnsues. In the 70s? This wasn't a common sight.

** At one point, ''Cathy'' comic strips were just as common a sight on office walls (and doors) as ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' strips were. This is how much people related to Cathy in the day.

* FairForItsDay/SeinfeldIsUnfunny: As noted, when the strip appeared in the 1970s, the idea of a newspaper comic with an adult, single, female protagonist (and a working one at that) was rather unheard of. By the end of its run, however, it too often seemed behind the times, presenting men and women in a stereotypical fashion which seemed outdated and somewhat sexist.
