!! [[Literature/DaddyLongLegs The book]]:

* FairForItsDay: Jean Webster was an early-20th century feminist, and it shows, particularly when Judy and Sallie talk about voting -- which women could not do at the time that the two books were published.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: At one point, Judy mentions that she will be able to know if a war breaks between the United States and Japan. [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII It does.]]
* ValuesDissonance: A given considering the age of the novel - however, it is particularly noticeable at one point in the sequel when Sallie ''uses a pancake tuner to beat the hell out of a boy''. Made worse by the fact that more people were concerned about Sallie's nerves than the boy's limp. To be fair, the boy had been [[KicktheDog torturing a mouse]] and the already very stressed Sallie simply ''splintered'' when she found out.
** The parts where she describes deaf, epileptic and intellectually challenged children as 'defective' and needing to be shut up in institutions so they don't pollute society also make the modern reader wince.
** [[HeartwarmingOrphan Allegra]]'s potential adoptive father seems to treat her like a sort-of "pet" to give as a gift to his IllGirl wife, rather than an actual child with her own troughts. It shows a lot when Sallie refuses to give Allegra away (because the girl has two older brothers and he doesn't want to adopt them), then the gentleman throws what can be easily seen as an UpperClassTwit tantrum [[NeverMyFault and blames Sallie for it]]. [[spoiler: Thankfully, he re-thinks his attitude some time later and takes the three children in.]]

!! [[Webcomic/DaddyLongLegs The webcomic]]:

* LesYay: Miss Aphid and Gertrude in the Halloween strips.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: The ninth panel of [[http://daddylonglegs.smackjeeves.com/comics/1139935/bulk-or-lack-thereof/ this comic]] could qualify.
* NightmareFuel:
** Scapegrace ''breathes'' this, from his slurring speech, to his random appearances, to his notably creepier design than everyone else, to the fact that he knows what Harvestman's blood tastes like...
** The [[http://th02.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2011/093/c/2/extended_dll_scale_reference_by_sulphurspoon-d3d40gw.png height of the characters in relationship to humans]] is bad enough. Then we get [[http://th01.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2011/093/1/b/what_are_these_giants_by_sulphurspoon-d3d4osj.png these guys]].
** Even Scapegrace's ''dreams'' are creepy, [[TearJerker sad]] as they might be.
** [[http://daddylonglegs.smackjeeves.com/comics/1265045/ The bat in this strip]]
* OneSceneWonder: The genial, courteous mustache-slug.
* UglyCute: Harvestman is a giant fat arachnid with very little hair who is also utterly adorable.
* TheWoobie: Scapegrace has shades of this at times, with his extremely sad and depressing dreams, which indicate his childhood was not exactly nice and his family was {{dysfunctional|Family}} and screwed up. Oh and he's probably having the same sickness his dad had, [[IncurableCoughOfDeath showing the same symptoms]], so there's the possibility that [[YourDaysAreNumbered his days are numbered]]. And really, Harvestman and Crane are pretty much his {{only friend}}s, and even Crane thinks him to suspicious and creepy, such as the scene where he immediately thought Scapegrace to be the cause of his missing son. It's hard not to feel sorry for him.
