* ValuesDissonance: Up until the mid-90s, Paige would regularly [[BigBrotherBully beat up Jason]] after being on the receiving end of his pranks. With school bullying a huge problem these days, such strips would have a hard time getting published.

* JumpingTheShark[=/=]SeasonalRot: How some feel about the strip's transition to Sunday-only format, though others believe it had reached this point long beforehand.



* ToyShip: Jason and Eileen.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: [[http://www.gocomics.com/foxtrot/1996/05/20 This comic]] became less funny after the death of [[Film/GrizzlyMan Timothy]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Treadwell Treadwell]].

** In one early strip, when the company Roger's working at is cutting back and is laying people off left and right...while Pembrooke is giving ''himself'' a ''raise''. Roger considers giving Pembrooke a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, but [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome doesn't work up the courage to do so]].


Added DiffLines:

** One strip had Andy cutting the family's cable and the children are forced to watch ''Series/SesameStreet'' instead. Not so amusing after ''Sesame Street'' moved from PBS to cable channel HBO in January 2016.

** [[http://www.gocomics.com/foxtrot/2004/03/25 This strip]] is even better now that {{Disney}} actually ''has'' [[Anime/HowlsMovingCastle started]] [[Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea distributing]] [[Anime/TheSecretWorldOfArrietty anime]]. This was even pointed out by a Gocomics user below, [=DerkinsVanPelt218=].

** When [[http://www.foxtrot.com/2012/03/11/beyond-mars/ this strip was released]], fans already knew it was [[AcclaimedFlop very unlikely]] that ''Film/JohnCarterOfMars'' would ever beget a sequel.

* TheScrappy: Andy, to some people. Other than what's stated in CreatorsPet, Andy's incredibly hypocritical and at times can be '''really''' unlikable.

** Also, the strip where Jason and Marcus attempt to pitch an idea to Hollywood of making a sequel to ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' detailing a bigger, faster, and more safe one than before (which sinks because Paige Fox goes on it due to a lottery ticket) becomes even more funny when they actually did make [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanic_II a Titanic sequel in 2010]], this time a Disaster-genre Film.

* BrokenBase: As expected, the April 01, 2012 strip ({{the one with}} Jason watching the ''Series/GameOfThrones[=/=]WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' crossover) split the fanbase up into whether Bill Amend was supposed to be portraying bronies positively or negatively. One brony was so hurt over the comic, he [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation made a theory that Jason's shocked face was of delight, and he was looking for a pitchfork because the episode was]] ''fake''. Then again, it's relatively clear which series Jason favors as a proud nerd who doesn't like works tailored for girls or young children.
** Something similar happened in 2005 with [[http://www.gocomics.com/foxtrot/2005/09/29/ this strip]] from an arc when Jason was writing horoscopes. In the strip, Jason announces he will sell them to newspapers for free, and Peter asks how he will make money. It then cuts to one of his horoscopes where every fortune is an advertisement for something. Among them was "Go see ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', in theaters today!", which [[http://www.theninemuses.net/log/2005/09/yesssssss-i-always-suspected-jason-fox.html caused at least one fanboy]] to go "OMG JASON LIKES ''Series/{{FIREFLY}}!''", completely ignoring the fact that the choice of movie had nothing to do with the joke and the real joke was that Jason was selling out by advertising a movie in his horoscopes. (To be fair, unlike ''MLP'', ''Firefly'' is actually something up Jason's alley)

** In one April Fool's Day strip, Jason is horrified because the TV network makes a joke about GameOfThrones doing a crossover with MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. Later, MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic itself makes a reference to GameOfThrones in "Tanks For the Memories" when Twilight Sparkle says "Winter is coming."
