    Trivia tropes

    • Name's the Same: The title character was inadvertently named after a comic character from The Forties who would feature in US Air Force publications as a humorous example of 'How Not To Do It'. Adams asked for name suggestions from his friends, and the winner didn't realize he must have recalled the name from the earlier comic until after Dilbert had already become famous.
    • Recycled Script: Cleanup on aisle three.

    Non-trope trivia

    • The strip was dropped by GoComics and many major newspaper chains in 2023 after Scott Adams made a racist rant on YouTube.
