* FollowTheLeader: Hmm. A fat, lazy, cantankerous orange cat... [[ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} Where would that same idea later show up...]] You don't suppose the insanely iconic ''Garfield'' would honestly fall under Follow the Leader, would you?
** Brought up during the segment "Cat Court" on ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'', when he takes Garfield to court for ripping him off.
-->'''Heathcliff:''' I was in the funny papers ''five years'' before this lame knockoff!

Added DiffLines:

* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: [[http://heathcliff.wikia.com/wiki/Garbage_Ape Garbage Ape]] shows up to Heathcliff's delight and knocks over the neighborhood trash cans. He makes regular appearances, with no more explanation than that. Oh, and he has a sidekick: Trash Chimp.


The strip is also notable in that it had ''two'' cartoons based on it. The first, in 1980, was produced by Creator/RubySpears and (in the second season) was paired up with an animated adaptation of ''ComicStrip/{{Marmaduke}}''. The second and more familiar one, produced by Creator/DICEntertainment, came in 1984, paired with the ''Catillac Cats''. A film adaptation was planned for 2011 but never got off the ground.

Heathcliff became renowned as one of iconic voice actor {{Creator/Mel Blanc}}'s final original roles, voicing him in both cartoons.

* TheSpeechless: This is how the casual reader can tell the difference between Heathcliff and [[ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} the other guy]]. Heathcliff understands language but never actually says anything. Notable in that there are talking animals in the strip, e.g. birds and mice.

Curiously both cartoons subvert this by making Heathcliff even more of a mouthy wise guy than the latter (quips provided by none other than Creator/MelBlanc).
