- Of course Dogbert's cynical, the Greek word Kynikos (that cynical is derived from) means dog-like.
- I spent a lot of time scratching my head over the evolution joke in the animated series. An endorsement of Creationism seemed downright bizarre on a show that had mocked religion more than once. The fact that the joke was based around the premise that Evolution was "only a theory" on a show this smart seemed jaw-dropping. Then it hit me: Dilbert couldn't explain WHY it was called a "theory." The joke was that being right about something you don't understand is no better than being wrong.
- In the animated adaptation, not one plot makes any coherent sense even in context, nor is it intended to.
