** Series/ImAlanPartridge is very similar to the Roger Mellie strips, although Partridge is far less vulgar than Mellie.

* TooSoon: The comic has received several complaints about this over the years. The creator claimed that he wanted to satirise the outpouring of grief over Princess Diana's death without incurring a public backlash because of this trope, so he instead more "subtly" wrote a spoof story about Monkees fans grieving for Mickey Dolenz's death despite his still being alive.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In a 2002 strip, Roger Mellie takes over as the host of ''Series/PoliceCameraAction'', only to be quickly fired when it turns out that one clip features Mellie ''himself'' causing a serious accident by drink-driving. The following year, the show's real-life host, Alastair Stewart was suspended... for drink-driving.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Big Vern! Despite the humor of the comic strip involves Vern mistakenly believing himself as a '70s blagger, and often mistakes normal and innocent activities for criminal escapades it's NEVER really clear if Vern really is a gangster, or simply a man with severe delusions. He never seems to associate with real criminals, only with his friend Ernie, yet he does seem to know a lot about armed robberies, has no hesitation in killing people and has a seemingly endless supply of firearms.
** Fru T. Bun is obviously sexually deprived and resorts to his gingerbread sex dolls could be seen as delusional as he is often finds himself surrounded by female gingerbread sex dolls and once ended up in a jail cell with a gingerbread sex doll with a chocolate eclair for a penis, so it's not clear where the other gingerbread sex dolls came from or they are all in his head... it's heavily implied that in this world other bakers have the same mindset as Frubert.

* JumpTheShark: Many fans consider the departures of lead writer-artists Chris Donald and Simon Donald (in 1999 and 2003 respectively) to be when the comic completely ceased to be worthwhile. Having said that, it still sells well -- incredibly, it's still the best-selling of all the comic books which currently originate in the UK, even moreso than the long-running children's comic ''TheBeano''.

** WordOfGod States that Billy The Fish was intentionally designed to be the Scrappy: the stupid, unfunny and generally crap strip that always gets read last. It is the only strip drawn in greyscale, in order to make even the artwork look dull.
