Running Gags, or recurring jokes, are a staple of the Heathcliff comic strip. These gags are noteworthy in that they appear in multiple unconnected strips of the Heathcliff comic, with the expectation that the reader will recognize them and derive enjoyment from the referencing of a joke that they have seen previously in a different strip.
