YMMV: Phoebe and Her Unicorn
aka: Heavenly Nostrils
- Awesome Art: DC Simpson's art work has come a long way since Ozy and Millie.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Sue.
- Follow the Leader / Distaff Counterpart: To Calvin And Hobbes, according to some comments on Go Comics.com. Personality-wise, Hobbes and Marigold share an endearing sense of kindness mixed with playfulness and a healthy appreciation of themselves. That said, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils can allow herself to be seen and admired by humans, whereas Hobbes appears to be purely a figment of Calvin's imagination. And Phoebe isn't nearly as menacing or as bad in school as Calvin.
- Incidentally, Dana Simpson has admitted that the strip has a unicorn because she was a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
- Squick: Todd the Candy Dragon is a dragon who produces candy (and later ice cream) from his mouth.
- Technology Marches On: Done periodically for a gag, such as when Marigold offers to take Phoebe to a record store. "What's a record?"
- Toy Ship: Phoebe and Max. Not surprising given their similarities to Millie and Ozy, respectively.
- Ugly Cute: Goblins.
