* DudeNotFunny: The joke about Pittsburgh didn't really sit well with the residents of Pittsburgh.
** In a 2005 strip, Bucky whacks Satchel in the back of the head with a TV remote so hard it causes him to cry, all over a piece of cheese. Although Satchel is often the victim of Bucky's brutality, and Bucky has made Satchel cry before (and over insignificant things), many, many fans felt this was an absolute low point for the comic.

* {{Padding}}: The newer strips tend to draw their jokes out to ridiculous lengths, often to the point where it's same subject several weeks later and has pretty much devolved into rephrasing the same punchline as many times as possible.

The most egregious example may be a series of strips starting [[http://www.gocomics.com/getfuzzy/2014/03/31 here]] which just sort of stopped eventually without any actual punchline or payoff.

* AcceptableTarget: The French seem to get made fun of quite a bit, to the point that Darby Conley lampshaded when responding to the backlash over the Pittsburgh joke, citing France is among many other places that ''are'' acceptable to make fun of.

** It certainly doesn't hurt matters that he's not a JerkAss like Bucky is.

* RecycledScript: Used as much as you would expect a newspaper strip to, and also in a somewhat strange week where Darby is shown to both be late with his latest strips and to have been accidentally sent unpublished strips of ''PearlsBeforeSwine''. The rest of the week is these strips with Satchel and Bucky pasted over the characters, as well as Stephan Pastis calling Darby to complain about the situation.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: After returning from a trip to see his parents, Satchel is upset that his father is a rescue dog and that he himself has no accomplishments to be proud of. Rob's response? "You make my life happy, dude. That's huge to me."
** Bucky fixing Satchel's watch.
** "Welcum home blood doners. Have uh cooki."
*** For those who haven't seen it, ''[[{{Jerkass}} Bucky]]'' sets up the mini-party after Rob and Satchel give blood after 9/11.
** There was a strip where Rob and Satchel were looking at some old photos from when Bucky was just a kitten; he's downright adorable and terrified of the big scary world around him. This moment is then subverted with Rob's comment: "[[UsedToBeASweetKid He used to be so cute...]] what the [expletive] happened?"
** Bucky giving Satchel a genuine hug after receiving Satchel's gift of Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream. Bucky thought it contained real monkey, and was very moved by it.

** In the arc with the editor, he tried to make the strip LighterAndSofter by telling Bucky "From now on, you're Princess Leslie! And you like pink things!" Not only is there a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' character named Princess Ce'''les'''tia, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 there's Princess Cadence, a princess character on the same show who is colored pink]].
