Zits Comic Homework Helper

  • Aborted Arc: Oh no, Jeremy's parents saw his Facebook page, and aren't happy with the content! What's going to happen? ... Nothing, apparently.
  • Accidental Unfortunate Gesture: After Jeremy accidentally cut his middle finger, he was told to elevate it. The nurse quickly changes her mind after she overhears a few "Same to you, Duncan!" comments in the school halls.
  • The Ace:
    • Chad, a high-achieving straight A student who has won numerous awards for various fields of sports and extracurricular activities.
    • Jeremy himself qualifies as well, with a 4.0 GPA, his own band, athletic skill, and a large circle of friends.
  • All-Cheering All the Time: A group of cheerleaders use cheers to encourage Pierce to put some litter in the bin, causing him to remark that "There is such a thing as too much school spirit!".
  • All Drummers Are Animals: Pierce, sometimes. In his earliest appearances he intentionally cultivated this image.
  • All Women Love Shoes: Sara.
  • The Alleged Car: Jeremy's 1962 VW Microbus. Most of the time, he and Hector just hang out in it, but once, they slipped the tires from Connie's station wagon on it and (barely) got it up and running. Once Jeremy finally got his license, it moved from being a hangout to an actual (somewhat) mode of transportation for good.
  • Aloof Older Brother: Chad was initially introduced as the super-perfect, yet distant, brother who is always busy when Jeremy wants to hang out with him. His character (both appearance and personality) has since been changed into a more relatable figure who occasionally gives Jeremy advice, even though he's still depicted as the overachieving son that Jeremy could never be.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Practically the fuel of the series. Jeremy does exaggerate this Trope quite a bit, but it is played straight.
  • Anachronism Stew: While Walt and Connie being baby boomers with a teenage son was feasible in the 90s, it's become increasingly more of a stretch to buy it.
    • Jeremy's clothing stays stuck in the grunge era. He got a minor update to his hair, and Hector has gotten a completely new hairstyle, which was badly needed - Jeremy's hair is (and mostly was) generic enough to pass anytime from the late 80's to today, but Hector's original 'do was pure '90s. The clothing issue was lampshaded in a December 2014 story arc in which Pierce pointed out that Jeremy had been wearing the same outfit for years, and encouraged him to try something new; Jeremy experimented with a more up-to-date style before settling on a selection from a new Vintage Nineties Grungewear Collection® which looked exactly like his old outfit.
  • Anyone Remember Pogs?: Walt attempting to describe tiddlywinks to Jeremy and Pierce.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Jeremy's mother says there's something she wants to talk to him about. He then deadpans several wild guesses, including "You're having a sex change?" and "You and dad are cousins?" She gets increasingly frustrated and finally yells out, "No! We're changing salsa brands!" "...WHAT??"
    • Repeated a second time when his parents try and tell him they're changing toilet paper brands, which "seemed more monumental at the store."
    • Walt tells Jeremy that he lived through Nixon, the Cold War, leisure suits and Vietnam. Jeremy's reaction?

    "Whoa! Leisure suits!"

  • Art Evolution: The art was a lot more sloppy and sketchy early on.
  • Awkward Father-Son Bonding Activity: Walt and Jeremy's fishing trip.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Jeremy whines to his parents about how "nothing ever happens here!" Cue Walt, tearing off his shirt and dancing around while singing "Shake Your Bon-Bon!"
  • Beach Bury: Jeremy and Sara bury Pierce on the beach, giving him a sand suit and tie and just about driving him into shock.

    Pierce: Even if I live to be thirty, I'll never get over it!

  • Big Eater: Jeremy, like many teenage males. His friends, too, if the "All You Can Eat" buffet owner's closing shop as soon as he sees the gang is any indication.
    • He and Hector are even shown to be capable of unhinging their jaws in order to swallow a giant burger whole, wondering why the girls freak out.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: Body-modification fan Pierce soon came to love these, when Jeremy's dad (not a Depraved Dentist) called it "Getting your smile pierced."
    • He then admonished Pierce for adding to his braces for decorative purposes.
  • Brain Bleach: Jeremy attempts to apply this many, MANY times when he hears or sees something squicky concerning his parents.
    • Most notably when Jeremy learns from his mother he was conceived to the song Stairway to Heaven, actually sticking his head under a faucet and pouring water into his ear to try to erase what he had just heard.
      • His friend Hector later reveals his own mother told him he was conceived while blueberry muffins burned in the oven. To this day, Hector can't even look at one without feeling sick.
    • This happened to Connie too in one strip. After she commented that a song he was listening to was "catchy", he showed her the lyrics. In the final panel, Jeremy tells his dad, "I'm grounded for buying a CD and mom is at church for liking it."
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: One strip has Jeremy said he would rather watch grass grow, or paint dry, or paint the grass and watch it dry as it grows.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Jeremy is often shown as this.
  • Brown Bag Mask: Pierce wears one when he has to drive Mrs Toomey's minivan home from the lake.
  • Buffet Buffoonery: An 'all-you-can-eat' pizza place hurriedly closes its shades and flips the closed sign when it sees a group of teenaged boys approaching.
  • Buffy Speak: Jeremy once described Sara's lips as "two moist, delicate, perfectly formed... lip-shaped things."
  • Car Meets House: In one strip, Jeremy manages to hydroplane the car while pulling it ten feet forward into the garage and puts it through the back wall of the garage.
  • Characterization Marches On:
    • Chad's evolution from the perfect, he-whose-face-can't-be-shown to more "normal"-looking but still perfect.
    • Pierce was also more of an angry punk in the strips that introduced him, before evolving into a fairly cool guy with a few eccentricities.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Several.
    • Y.A., the original drummer in Jeremy's garage band. He just announced that he was quitting (sometime in the strip's second year, no less!) and never came back. He was never really given any character development anyway.
    • Chad hasn't been seen or mentioned in ages, either. And he's Jeremy's brother. The creators even joke frequently that they forget he exists. A lampshade was officially hung on this when Jeremy states that he "needs to start leaving his room more" on account of never seeing Chad, to which Chad responds, "That's what I keep telling your sister."
    • Tim, another member of Jeremy and Hector's band. He was given some Character Development in an arc where he showed sympathy for his mother, who was recovering from breast cancer; both Jeremy and Hector were shocked at this behavior, as they took Tim to be quiet, moody and indifferent to others' needs. However, Tim pretty much disappeared after that.
    • See also Out of Focus below.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Pierce, who tends to act on impulse and generally has little grasp on reality.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: Connie's job as a child therapist seems to be of no help.
  • Comfort Food: When Jeremy isn't feeling well, his mother knows that it helps.

    Walt: Calorie therapy?

    Connie: When in doubt, apply food to the wound.

  • Comically Missing the Point: During the summer 2006 story line where Pierce has a Wild Teen Party that Jeremy attends, Jeremy's folks find out what's going on pretty quickly. After they help the boys break up the party and clean up, Connie sits Pierce down and talks to him about how illegal it was and that if anything bad had happened, his parents would have been held responsible for it since it's their home.

    Pierce: That's not fair! I do all the work and they get all the credit?!

    Jeremy: (Facepalm) Dude...

  • Comic-Book Time: Jeremy has been 15 for over a decade. It's only since 2009 that he's turned 16, gotten a driver's license and moved up to being a sophomore.
    • This becomes problematic with Jeremy's parents, especially with Walt, as there are many references to him being a hippy in The '60s. When the strip started in 1997, it was not uncommon for a baby boomers to have a teenage kid. But since the strip is still going on in 2014, Walt should be in his sixties now, so he should be retired or close to retirement age. And since Connie is implied to be roughly the same age as Walt, this would mean she gave birth to Jeremy in her late forties or early fifties, which, while not impossible, is extremely uncommon.
  • Complaining About Things You Haven't Paid For: There was a short storyline where Jeremy is upset because a website he likes hasn't been updated for a while. His father goes from saying he should demand a refund to mocking his sense of entitlement when he finds out the site is free.
  • Cone of Shame: Pierce wears one to try to cut down his mobile phone usage.
  • Confusing Multiple Negatives: In the 2015-01-01 strip, Jeremy uses this to trick Connie into letting him go out.

    Connie: Behave yourself
    Jeremy: Don't worry. I'll only not do things you wouldn't not do.
    Pierce: So you can go?
    Jeremy: As long as we're gone before she counts the 'nots'.

  • Convenience Store Gift Shopping: Jeremy and Sara were exchanging gifts for Christmas, but Sara forgot. She quickly grabs the first thing she sees, wraps it and gives it to Jeremy. Cut to Jeremy and Hector examining the very loud, wide necktie:

    Jeremy: What do you think she's trying to say?

    Hector: I heart geeks?

  • Couldn't Find a Pen: Sadist Teacher Ms. Butcher writes Jeremy's grades in blood.
  • Crush Filter: Jeremy's crush on his guidance counsellor manifests this way, with him imagining her in a leopard skin bikini, draping herself across her desk, etc.
  • Cue the Flying Pigs: When Jeremy cleans his bathroom without being threatened, a flock of pigs take to the air and fly through the house.
  • Dagwood Sandwich: At one point Jeremy eats one that's so big he has to unhinge his jaw.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The entire cast at various points.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable: Sara's pet turtles are named Peaches and Mordoc, Lord of Unholy Fury. She got them at different times of the month.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Jeremy accidentally cheesed off Sara by saying that her freckles help hide her zits, then compounded it by asking what it's like having divorced parents. Both comments are represented by white-on-black word balloons that linger in the air.
    • Jeremy had this problem one other time: every time he opened his mouth, something stupid came out (which was depicted as a hillbilly-looking mini-Jeremy leaping out his mouth shouting things like "Shagadellic!" and "I think Adam Sandler movies will stand the test of time.") Eventually he goes to Britney for help, who illuminates him to the fact that most males go undiagnosed with this same affliction for years.
    • Another time, Jeremy is getting progressively angry with Sara about something. It culminates with him dialing her number, getting her voicemail, and screaming, "YOU SKANK!" into the phone. A panel later, he's covering his mouth in Stunned Silence, realizing the gravity of what he's just said.
    • In this strip, a literal "F-bomb" comes out of Jeremy's mouth, prompting him to ask this.
  • Did You Get a New Haircut?: Happens when Jeremy loses his retainer and becomes comically bucktoothed. Pierce was going to guess he had a new haircut.
  • Dinner Deformation: Jeremy unhinges his jaw to eat a giant burger.
  • Dinner Order Flub: Attempting to impress Sara, Jeremy orders the radicchio, "medium rare, of course". The waiter informs him that the raddicho is a salad and the chef prefers to serve it raw. As Sara and Connie dissolve in laughter, Walt attempts to make Jeremy feel better by saying that when he and Connie were dating he once ordered "jackets required".
  • Dissimile: Pierce's family life "is like a symphony. But there aren't any musical instruments, and the musicians just yell at each other."
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The art was a lot different early on; Jeremy and Hector's drummer was a black guy named Y.A., who never developed and was quickly dropped; Jeremy's mom was a child therapist; Chad was always drawn so that word balloons obscured his face; et cetera. Also, some early strips had Jeremy as The Narrator, but that aspect quickly disappeared.
  • Either "World Domination", or Something About Bananas: An unintelligible Pierce asks Jeremy for a favour after having the bands on his braces tightened. Jeremy remarks that he just agreed to either share his history notes or milk Pierce's hamster.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: The peace symbol on Walt's butt.

    Connie: That peace sign is as big as a stop sign now.

  • Embarrassingly Painful Sunburn: Jeremy has done the 'fall asleep while sunbathing' version.
  • Enter Stage Window: Hector often comes in through Jeremy's (second-story) bedroom window, sometimes to hilarious effect:

    Hector (stuck in window): Jeremy! Help!
    Jeremy: Lift your leg!
    Hector: I'm trying! Grab my foot! The other one!
    [Hector finally gets inside]
    Jeremy:Why didn't you just use the door?
    Hector: I didn't want to trouble you.

    • It's even funnier because a reverse-angle shows Hector dangling outside the second-story window, and there's nothing there he couldn't have climbed up; the wall is absolutely bare.
  • Even the Rats Won't Touch It: Pierce feeds a pigeon a corn chip, only to cause it to throw up.
  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: Pierce.
  • Fat Best Friend: Hector.
  • Flanderization: Jeremy went from being a regular, believable (and more importantly, relatable) teenager to just another TV Teen who only communicates in grunts, texts needlessly, and has a messy room, earning him the Fan Nickname, "Jerkemy" on many snark boards.
  • Formerly Fit: Walt played varsity basketball in high school and used to be an absolute beanpole. These days he's overweight and gets exhausted and has his joints ache while attempting to play basketball with Jeremy in the driveway.
  • Free the Frogs:
    • Autumn encourages Jeremy and Hector to let loose boxes of a total of 50,000 live crickets that were supposed to be dissected in biology class.
    • In a later strip, Pierce frees thousands of locusts that were to be dissected. Or rather, he lets them out into the hallway.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: Hector and Pierce almost never interact with each other without Jeremy as an intermediary. In fact, even with Jeremy there, strips containing both of them, outside of band practice, are relatively uncommon.
  • Funny Answering Machine: Jeremy makes a message where he simply farts into the phone: "Leave a message at the sound of the 'frap'." And in an early strip, "You have reached the number you called. Blah, blah, blah. If you actually need further instructions, well, that's just pathetic."
  • Garage Band: Jeremy, Hector, Tim and Pierce have one.
  • The Generation Gap
  • The Ghost: Chad, Jeremy's big brother, who is in college.
  • Girl Posse: The aptly-named "Posse."
  • Give Me a Sign: During one story line, Jeremy contemplates stealing a street sign for a road that shares his name to use as a van decoration. In the middle of loosening it, he has a crisis of conscience and asks for a sign. He get his sign...specifically, the street sign, which falls on his head.
  • A Good Name for a Rock Band: Walt unwittingly suggested Goat Cheese Pizza for the name of Jeremy's garage band. He wasn't actually offering the name, but rather the pizza in question.
    • Earlier on, Jeremy had considered naming the band "Jughead's Hat," telling his mother that it was down to that or "Veronica's B-" "Stick to the hat!"
    • Later, they found another cool name based on something that sounded like a good idea at the time: "Creepy Clown Head Funeral."
  • A Good, Old-Fashioned Paint Watching: Walt talks about leaving Woodstock because it was raining and going to paint his grandmother's kitchen (which he seems to have preferred).
  • Gossipy Hens: The Posse.
  • Greeting Gesture Confusion: When Walt and Jeremy complete a project and attempt to celebrate, one goes for a high five while the other goes for a fist bump. Subsequent attempts to correct this with other gestures just result in more confusion.
  • Had the Silly Thing in Reverse: One of Jeremy's attempts to move the car without permission. It results in him knocking a door off the car, driving into the garage wall, and dumping paint (and a lawnmower) over the car roof.

    "N for neutral, R for reverse... and D for disaster."

  • Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Walt.
  • Handy Feet: Jeremy's multitasking usually invokes this trope.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation:
    • Subverted in one strip where the dad starts saying all sorts of outlandish things to the be-headphoned Jeremy, including a promise of new computer equipment and tales of an alien attack. After a short pause, Jeremy responds to everything Dad just said, even capping it off with "But the Martian thing sounds kinda unlikely."
    • Played straight in a Sunday Strip where Jeremy walks into the kitchen with headphones on. Connie gets on his case, ranting for three panels and asking, "Why not just save the headphones for those times when you want to block out unwanted noise?" The last panel is him with his headphones back on, blocking out her ranting.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Jeremy, who would sleep until noon if his parents doesn't wake him up. One strip actually have Connie feed, clothe, and drive him to school while he was sleeping.
  • Heh Heh, You Said "X": One Sunday strip is made of this trope, in which a museum guide calmly gives the class a tour on "the many wonderful examples of tools," causing Jeremy and Hector to mutter "Tools" at each other and dissolve into barely contained giggles. The guide goes on to explaining to the class on how "Some tools are very large... some are nearly microscopic," then asks them "Can you think of a tool you have in your pocket right now? What tool do you use every day?" It's a wonder they kept straight faces for as long as they did. Then after they get in trouble for it, Connie asks them what is so funny about the word 'tool', and we see Walt barely able to control himself. Also a case of Getting Crap Past the Radar. The Swedish translation translated it into verktyg, the Swedish word for tool. It didn't work very well.
  • Hidden Depths: Tim, the satellite guitarist of Jeremy's band was developed into a more sympathetic figure when he reveals his mother's struggle with breast cancer.
  • Hint Dropping:

    Jeremy: Some people are going to a movie tonight... Wanna go?

    Sara: I can't. I'm babysitting.

    Jeremy: Oh.

    Sara: Until midnight. By myself. At 6539 Windmill Lane. It's a light gray house. With a big comfy couch and a kid who goes to sleep at 8.

    Jeremy: So you're busy then, huh?

    Sara (thinking): Sara, he's a GUY... You have to be more obvious.

    • And on another occasion, when Jeremy makes his approval of one of his friends' girlfriend's making cookies for him known.

      Jeremy: Yessir, nothing says I care like a delicious home-made plate of cookies!

      Sara: And nothing says "knuckledragger" like the sexist expectations of a boyfriend.

  • Human Notepad: Jeremy tends to write on himself a lot, to the point that Connie once called him a "walking Post-It note". The cover of the compilation Rude, Crude, and Tattooed even has him doodling all over his own skin.
  • Humiliating Wager: The bets in the poker games between Jeremy and his friends usually involve humiliating forfeits such as "one conspicuous nose pick in front of a hot girl".
  • Hurricane of Excuses: Jeremy's explanations for why he's late.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In one series of strips, Jeremy explains to Connie that he's reconsidering getting his driver's license due to environmental concerns. This causes Connie to complain to Walt that Jeremy's being selfish...when the only reason she's angry is because Jeremy not having a license means she'll have to keep driving him everywhere.
  • I'll Take Two Beers Too: In one strip, Connie asks Jeremy to get the dessert bowls while she gets the pie. Jeremy asks how many he should get:

    Connie: Well, there's you, your father, and me.
    Jeremy: I'll get three then.
    Connie: Good choice.
    Jeremy: How many do you guys want?

  • Improbably High I.Q. / Improbably Low IQ: Parodied. Jeremy and Hector once took an Internet IQ test with Jeremy scoring impossibly low and Hector scoring impossibly high, despite their virtually identical educations. Jeremy began to wonder if he was really that stupid and Hector started treating him like a dolt. Jeremy was only convinced the test was flawed after his father scored even higher on it.
  • Improbably Predictable: Jeremy comes down for breakfast with a stack of cards, and answers each of his mother's questions ("Orange juice? Eggs?") with the next card. Finally she insists, "I am not that predictable!" and he reveals the card which reads, "Wanna bet?"
  • Informed Flaw: Tim is always portrayed as quiet, agreeable, and low-key, at least in person. However, literally every time Jeremy is shown speaking to him over the phone, he furiously comments on what a jerk (or "prong") Tim is.
  • Innocently Insensitive: One early set of strips involved a close friend of Walt's suddenly passing away. In an attempt to comfort his dad, Jeremy says that the friend "lived a long, full life." Unfortunately, this only angers Walt, since his friend was Walt's age when he died.
  • Instant Humiliation: Just Add YouTube!: Jeremy tries to tell a friend about an embarrassing incident in the cafeteria, only to find it's already on the internet.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: When Jeremy comes home and finds a note in his room moved, he asks his mother about it and she claims she would never read a silly note from a girl. Then Jeremy asks how she knew it was from a girl.
  • Irrevocable Message: The angry "YOU SKANK!" Jeremy leaves on Sara's voicemail.
  • I Take Offence to That Last One: This exchange:

    Jeremy: You're acting like a jerk, and your girlfriend is a parasite.

    Hector: Really? I'm acting like a jerk?

  • It's All About Me: Part and parcel of being a teenager is Jeremy's firm conviction that the entire world exists solely to humour him.
  • It Tastes Like Feet: In one strip, Jeremy commented that Walt's health drink tasted like licking the underside of a lawnmower.
    • And Pierce's burps taste like caterpillars, apparently.
    • And, according to Pierce, if you dip Salisbury steak in pudding it tastes just like squirrel.
  • I Was Having Such a Nice Dream: Jeremy, all the time.
  • I Was Quite a Fashion Victim: Jeremy asks his dad what he was like at 15. Apparently, he had a large poofy afro, bell-bottom pants, ridiculously tacky jacket and shirt, and had braces and granny glasses. Oh, and he played the clarinet. The image scares Jeremy enough it gets rid of his hiccups.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: One of the early strips had Jeremy look through a scrapbook and discover, with total shock: "My mom used to be a babe!"
  • Jerk Ass: If Jeremy wasn't their kid, they would have beat the shit out of him years ago. Of course, his parents veer into this area now and then too.
  • Kids Shouldn't Watch Horror Films: Jeremy watches Scream (1996), The Exorcist, and The Blair Witch Project when he's home alone, and every little sound in the house starts terrifying him.

    Connie: (to Walt) Check the fuses. Every light in the house is going to be on tonight.

  • Last Minute Project: Any and every homework assignment Jeremy is given.
  • Last Place You Look: Connie does this with her car keys on occasion.
  • Least Rhymable Word: Jeremy's musical book report runs into problems when he realises that nothing rhymes with 'Gatsby'.
  • Likes Older Women: Hector is attracted to middle-aged women.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Split down the middle; the male characters have this trope while the women avert it. Connie even lampshades it.

    Men don't shop-they tivo their closets!

  • Meaningful Name: Pierce, who has a body full of piercings.
  • Men Can't Keep House: A frequent joke with Jeremy's room.
  • Milking the Giant Cow: A long series of panels shows Jeremy "dancing" by jumping up and down while pumping his fists. Hector says he looks like he's milking a kangaroo.
  • Mistaken for Junkie: Or, in this case, mistaken for pothead.
  • Mr. Seahorse
  • This article is about the comic strip about teenagers. You may be looking for pimples or the adult comic Zit. For other uses, see zit.

    Zits is a comic strip written by cartoonist Jerry Scott and illustrated by Jim Borgman about the life of Jeremy Duncan, a 16-year-old high school sophomore (previously a 15-year-old for the life of the comic). The comic debuted in July 1997 in over 200 newspapers and has since become popular worldwide and received multiple awards.[1] As of 2010, it continues to be syndicated by King Features and is now included in "more than 1,700 newspapers worldwide in 45 countries and is translated into 15 different languages."[2]

    Set in central Ohio suburbia, the strip centers on Jeremy as he tries to balance his family life, social life, the academic demands of high school and his plans for the future, often with a heavy dose of surrealism, making it stand out from being just a typical teenager cartoon strip.


    In 1996, Jerry Scott was drawing Baby Blues, a comic strip about raising children he co-wrote with Rick Kirkman.[3] He realized, however, that his profession as an independent cartoonist was limited to whatever joke he could conceive next.[4] A friend suggested he begin a strip about a teenager. Scott heeded the proposition but was unsatisfied with his character's sketches, finding them similar to those of his existing strip. After Scott discussed the issue with his artist friend Jim Borgman, the two corresponded with one another over the next few months and eventually collaborated on the characters that would become the Duncans. King Features, already distributing Baby Blues and Borgman's editorial cartoons, began running the new comic strip in 1997 with Scott writing and Borgman drawing.[4]

    Main characters[edit]

    Jeremy Duncan[edit]

    Jeremy Michael Duncan[5] is an intelligent, 16-year-old high school sophomore (earlier a 15-year old freshman) who aspires to be a rock musician. He is named after Jeremy Clyde of the 1960s rock duo Chad and Jeremy (although one strip shows his parents named him after a lyric in "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night, "Jeremiah was a bullfrog".) and was once mentioned to have an older brother named Chad, who is away in college.[6] Jeremy spends much of his time with his friends and trying to impress love interest and part-time girlfriend, Sara Toomey. Jeremy was once told by his mother he was conceived to the song "Stairway to Heaven". When not at school or with his friends, Jeremy is often embarrassed and/or lectured by his parents, Walt and Connie Duncan. For example:

    Jeremy: Mom, will you take me shopping?
    Connie: (with a tear) You don't know how long I've waited to hear those words come out of your mouth!
    Jeremy: To clarify: 'Take me shopping' means I shop, and you wait in the car.[7]

    He is shown as having an ability to tell who is calling on the telephone and for what reason when it rings (sometimes even before it rings), as when he told his mom to say hi to an aunt who hadn't phoned for weeks, only to have the phone ring and Connie tell him to "stop that!".

    He usually wears his purple shirt over a black T-shirt, blue jeans, and fat tongued Sneakers. He is also extremely tall, even when slouching. Jeremy spends time restoring a 1962 VolkswagenType 2 van with his best friend Hector Garcia, which they hope to drive across the country when they turn 16. The van is in running condition but doesn't run very well considering its age.[8] Jeremy is also the lead singer and guitarist of his garage band, which goes by many names including "Chickenfist", "Goat Cheese Pizza", "Jughead's Hat", and "Angry Dwarfs".[9] {In May 2017 his band received their first business engagement-[10]a 6 year old birthday party![11][12]} It was after the band debuted in a Battle of the Bands competition that Jeremy received his first kiss from Sara and the relationship took off. Since then, Jeremy and Sara have gone through many arguments, breakups and reconciliations. For all of Jeremy's flaws, however, he retains a high sense of morality and integrity as can be seen in the story arc where he steals a signpost with his name on it, only to return it to the police to free himself of the guilt he feels (although he uses Hector's name when turning it over).[13] On another occasion, Jeremy is overwhelmed by a school essay he has to write and all the other commitments he has made. A fellow student, Phoebe, suggests he use a website to pull a bootleg essay off the Internet. In the end, however, Jeremy's sense of ethics overcomes the desire to plagiarize, and he spends the night writing the essay himself.[14] In late-2000s strips, Jeremy received his learners' permit. In September 2007 strips, Jeremy's mother refers to his being a sophomore in high school. As of 2009 strips, Jeremy is claimed to be 16. On the August 23, 2009 strip, his driver's license was shown.

    Running gags in the strip include depictions of Jeremy's room as being so messy that Connie has to dig a tunnel to reach him, his tallness and growth spurts, and his ability to consume vast quantities of food in seconds (either by literally inhaling or shoveling it in; one strip even showed him unhinging his jaw to eat a large sandwich).

    Connie Duncan[edit]

    Connie Duncan is Jeremy's[6] mother, born about 1955. She is a child psychologist, but works only part-time after Jeremy's birth, and her profession is rarely mentioned except in early strips.[15] (Strangely, though, in the January 27, 2012 strip, she outright says that she might need a job outside the house.) She is also an aspiring writer, having begun work on a book titled: Coping Effectively with your Teen. Jeremy constantly interrupts her work with menial requests or by being too loud and she has yet to even finish the first chapter.[6] Besides being the family homemaker, Connie acts the disciplinarian for Jeremy. She is frequently seen waking him up for school, berating him for not following directions, and driving him to various destinations. Though Jeremy does not share much with his parents, Connie is always more than willing to listen to him.[16] She describes a conversation with him as "coaxing a smile out of a clam full of Botox".[17] In the strip, she is portrayed a few times as a forgetful airhead.[6][18][19]

    While Connie means well for Jeremy, she has the serious tendency to be incredibly over-controlling. She consistently reads personal items in Jeremy's room, gets very upset when Jeremy makes any hint of wanting more privacy, and wants to do everything for him (except homework, which neither of his parents can do).

    Walter "Walt" Duncan[edit]

    Walt Duncan is Jeremy's father born approximately in 1954, an orthodontist who, like Connie, finds it almost impossible to hold a conversation with his son. Walt is portrayed as clueless and old-fashioned about technology, especially computers and video players. But he is shown to be playing with a drone in the December 26, 2015 strip.[20] Despite Jeremy's attempts to explain how to use devices,[21] Walt is unable to comprehend even the most basic functions.[22] Walt is shown as having problems with math, as all he knows is the Pythagorean theorem.[23][24] He has been shown to think that a fan belt is part of a search engine and that "Googling" somebody means having sexual intercourse with them. His interactions with Jeremy's peers cause intense embarrassment for his son, as Walt makes comments such as "What's up, dood [sic]?", not knowing the meaning behind them.[25] He is the designated clothes launderer, often getting into arguments with Jeremy over notes in pockets, socks inside-out, and other pet peeves. Walt constantly wears oversized blue pants, plain white T-shirt, black vest, and a combover, which makes him look like a Walmart employee. Walt occasionally reveals memories that attest to a wilder youth, but most of these anecdotes are nonsense. According to Connie, his army jacket which "holds awful memories" was picked up by Walt at a thrift shop on a day when "the traffic was terrible", left Woodstock to paint his aunt's house when it began to rain, and when dating Connie, he once gave her a bong, mistaking it for a flower pot. In one instance, Walt recalls how uninhibited he felt one night at a Moby Grape concert. This shocking recollection causes him to forbid Jeremy from attending a similar concert.[26] Another time, Walt reveals he has had a peace sign tattooed on his rear end since the late 1960s, which has expanded along with his rear end, and is described to now be the size of a stop sign.[27]

    However, at times, he has been as cool as he can be to his son, like when he got a Guitar pick from one of Jeremy's favorite bands who turned out also to be orthodontists.

    Hector Garcia[edit]

    Hector Garcia is Jeremy's best friend and is a guitarist/vocalist in Jeremy's band. The two spend a lot of their time hanging out, much of it trying to restore the VW van and dreaming about where their future road trip will take them.[28] In practice, the two have not gotten far toward restoring the van past making it run, as the boys usually end up lying on the roof of the van, talking. Hector used to date Autumn, a militant vegetarian who refers to Jeremy as "carnivore", "predator", "vampire", and "flesh-eater" or the like whenever she sees him with meat.[29] He has the ability to grow facial hair on command. Hector is from a Spanish-speaking family and lives with his parents, grandparents, and multiple younger siblings[30] and is apparently Roman Catholic. Around the same time Jeremy learned he was conceived to Stairway to Heaven, Hector revealed he learned that when his parents conceived him, blueberry muffins were burning in the oven.

    Over the course of a few recent comics, Hector received a complete makeover from the Posse. The makeover has stuck, ultimately giving him a new character design.

    Sara Toomey[edit]

    Sara Toomey is Jeremy's on-again/off-again girlfriend. Although Jeremy thinks the world of her, she apparently likes Jeremy a lot, but has thought of him as a "salvageable male".[31] Her parents are divorced and her behavior wavers between kindness and aggravation.[32] She and Jeremy have broken up many times, but they always seem to make up sooner or later.[33] Sara's genuine kindness and generosity is evident in one story arc where she cuts her hair short and donates her ponytail to a charity for children undergoing chemotherapy.[34] In the January 15, 2008, strip, Jeremy revealed he did not want to date Sara exclusively anymore, but was upset when she readily accepted this change.[35] Sara has a locker next to Jeremy in their second year. There seems to be a suggestion Feb. 7, 2014, that Sara is Jewish, as her mother is taking her to a "Success Through Abstinence" seminar at what Sara describes as "the temple," though in an earlier comic, she and Jeremy exchange Christmas presents.


    Pierce is another of Jeremy's close friends, and the drummer of Jeremy's band (after the old drummer, Y.A., quit the band) who, as his name aptly implies, has much of his body pierced; in a 2008 storyline, Jeremy learned that when not in the presence of his friends, Pierce finds himself compelled to remove his piercings and dress like a preppy. Unlike most of Jeremy's close friends, Pierce's last name has not been revealed and his parents (with the exception of his mother in a picture that he was forced to carry on his chest, the incident in which she was believed to have cancer, and when she stalks him in a helicopter) have not been seen. He explains this early on, before realizing he has to get braces:

    Pierce: "I have a stud in my tongue, posts in my lips, rings in my nose and eyebrows, and twelve earrings on each ear. I defy anyone to find a way to attach more metal to my head."
    Walt: "Pierce, you need braces."[36]

    Pierce is worried by this until Walt says, "Don't think of it as getting braces... think of it as getting your smile pierced." which makes Pierce so happy, he hugs him. After he gets his braces he shows them off a lot for a while and describes them to Jeremy like they were a work of art. In 2016, he had them removed.[37] Additionally, he has Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel mural tattooed on the roof of his mouth.

    Despite his rebellious appearance, Pierce is actually very courteous and often tries to help out, but usually fails due to his interests and ideals. He is also very caring towards his pets and toward others, which he fulfills by donating to charities. Once, when Jeremy asked him to purchase a necklace for Sara for him, Pierce bought a necklace with a pair of jeweled skulls with intertwined snakes in the eye sockets, framed by a barbed-wire heart.[38] He has also been described as a very polite and cautious driver by Sara's mom. He began dating D'ijon after she went to see him get another stud in his tongue. Pierce has the ability to tell what people had for breakfast by smelling their breath.[39] Like Hector's girlfriend, Autumn, Pierce is an animal activist and environmentalist and has been known to wear tofu shoes because leather uses cow hides, rubber uses oil, and wood uses trees. A running gag in the comic features Pierce pulling the fire alarm at school. Pierce is quite naïve- in one instance his uncle "sold" Pierce T-shirts for the band with the "Goat Cheese Pizza" Logo for $100.00-when the going rate for T shirts logo is $2.00![40]

    Supporting characters[edit]


    Phoebe is one of Jeremy's classmates and is presented as a hyperbolic overachiever, using any means necessary to excel academically and enter a "high-power college".[41] She also consumes massive amounts of caffeine and has an espresso machine in her locker, which annoys almost everyone.[42] She is constantly padding her college resume.[43] Sadly, Phoebe is so obsessed with success that she has no sense of right and wrong, and will do nearly anything dishonest to get ahead, such as downloading bootleg reports off the Internet. (Jeremy didn't take her suggestion to do so, and she got caught). Interestingly, she has no pupils in her eyes, which she claims is due to selling her soul for a 4.3 GPA.[41]


    D'ijon is a student at Jeremy's high school. She is Pierce's girlfriend and one of Sara's friends. She has dreadlocks, a copy of Edvard Munch's The Scream tattooed on her tongue[39] and occasionally wanders around with Pierce after connecting their respective earrings. Her real name is Dionne; apparently, she started doing the "apostrophe thing" in 7th grade.[39]


    Autumn is Hector's ex-girlfriend and a strict vegetarian, whose social graces are as lacking as her personal hygiene (she appears to have more hair under her arms than on her head). She is noted for her extreme liberal and environmentalist political actions such as freeing 50,000 live crickets in the school to spare them from dissection(But this only led to them being killed by the school being sprayed by an exterminator.) Autumn despises Jeremy and has called him "flesh eater", "vampire", "murderer" and "cannibal" for eating meat.[44]


    Brittany is another of Jeremy's classmates and is the information pipeline for the sophomore class. She has the "great gift" of being able to critique the shortcomings of others.[45] Despite her negativity, Jeremy has several times sought her advice. In one story arc,[citation needed] while she is advising Jeremy about a Christmas present for Sara, she says she is lucky to be Jewish.

    Timothy "Tim" Olsen[edit]

    Tim Olsen is a shy, moody classmate of Jeremy's and the bassist of the band. His mother had breast cancer, and thinking the chemotherapy would make her hair fall out(thus Tim's shaved head), Jeremy and Hector shaved their heads as a token of empathy and comfort. It was not until afterward that they discovered she still had all her hair.[46]

    The Posse[edit]

    The Posse is a trio of vapid girls: Zuma, Redondo and LaJolla. The three have reportedly been "best friends forever" and "share the same taste in fashion... finishing each other's sentences."[47] All three girls are named after beaches in California. Zuma is portrayed in one comic as one very obsessed with her makeup and clothes, even going so far as to change her Social Security number so it is "cuter"; this extends to all of the girls to an extent, however, as they were once "held hostage by their hair" when they were supposed to have been helping Jeremy with a biology lab project. The Posse has the ability to outsource their emotions to each other.


    "Richandamy", as their classmates have nicknamed them, are boyfriend and girlfriend Rich and Amy who are generally seen in a constant, intertwined hug. One is rarely seen without the other, though their embrace does not go so far as to require both to enter the same rest room. They hug so hard that they can feel each other's pores and even undergo cellular mitosis.[48] Their embrace is fodder for much disgust and ridicule among their classmates, triggering many cynical comments.[49] They broke up briefly in November 2006,[50] and Rich was shown to have his arms locked in a "permahug" even without Amy in them.[51]

    Guest appearances[edit]

    Chad Duncan[edit]

    Chad Duncan is Jeremy's older brother by four years. He attends college (the college has been identified in the strip as the University of Notre Dame)[citation needed] and is an overachiever and the object of much jealousy by Jeremy.[52] In his first few appearances, Chad was said to be the perfect child, having his face slightly obscured, and having a more muscular build. He was later re-drawn as looking like an older version of Jeremy with a goatee.[53] Chad is an occasional character and rarely appears, typically showing up during the holiday seasons and leaving abruptly. In one strip,[54] he told Jeremy he had been there for two weeks already. After Jeremy said he needed to pay more attention, Chad replied, "That's what I keep telling your sister." Chad is a business major, "with a minor in uncommunication", according to Walt, as he almost never calls home.[55]


    Viral is another of Jeremy's classmates and friends. Viral is an over-achiever, tending to do many things at once (being class president, captain of the JV volleyball team, as well as many other activities) or better than normally expected. It has been revealed that Jeremy has a slight crush on her, although he is still faithful to Sara. Viral is a bit like Phoebe (for example, Viral also has a GPA above 4.0) but much more principled, and outgoing, and is energetic without a caffeine addiction. Viral also has been perceived as a perfectionist, as well as attentive.[56][57] Viral first appeared in the comic strip on November 7, 2007.[58] It is possible that Viral may have been Jeremy's girlfriend for a time (or someone introduced for a future love triangle with Sara; indeed, her name is an anagram for 'RIVAL')—during the story arc where Jeremy is caught driving past Viral's house 63 times (of which Pierce is so proud that he breaks down crying), the Judge references Viral as Jeremy's girlfriend, and Jeremy didn't deny it.[59]


    Becker, or Rebecca, is a fast-paced girl who is Jeremy's love interest beginning in 2008 strips. They first meet in the coffee shop, where she added her phone number to Jeremy's cell phone and talked to him (never letting Jeremy get in a word edgewise) followed by a kiss that makes Jeremy infatuated with her.[60]

    Albert Tang[edit]

    Albert Tang is another classmate of Jeremy's, first appearing in a strip that was centered around Jeremy's birthday. They had both been in class when the teacher mentioned someone's birthday was coming soon. Jeremy dreads that the teacher will mention his. When the teacher goes on to tell the class about Albert's instead, Jeremy exclaims "Hey, what about me?!" He returned to the strip in December 2008, asking Sara to the high school's winter formal. He used a rose and love note while Jeremy dressed up in a gorilla suit. Sara picked Albert. He was also mentioned in December 2010 when Pierce decoded a mumbled message from Jeremy about him studying the wrong chapter for a test. Jeremy was both sorry and amused at this.


    Billy is one of Jeremy's classmates; they are distant friends. Billy is openly gay, although this is only mentioned in a small number of strips and does not seem to affect those around him.[61] Billy once participated in a poker game with Jeremy and a few of their other peers from school.[62]

    Recognition and future developments[edit]

    Zits runs in over 1,500 newspapers worldwide.[1] Writer Jerry Scott received the National Cartoonists Society (NCS) Reuben Award in 2001.[63] The strip itself has been translated into at least ten languages, including German, Chinese, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Estonian."[64] Additionally, both Scott and Jim Borgman received the NCS Award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip two years running,[65] as well as the Max & Moritz Medal for Best International Comic.[1] As of 2009, the creators portray Jeremy as a 16-year old, and say this will probably not change. Borgman comments that the strip is inexorably built around the humorous tension of Jeremy living under his parents' rules and that, without this tension, the strip would cease to be humorous. There is some disagreement among them, however, as to how deep the characters should develop. Borgman would like the series to tackle complicated issues such as AIDS, drugs, and premarital sex, while Scott prefers not to "see the 6 o'clock news...on the funny pages."[4]

    Different versions[edit]

    The Monday, January 26, 2009, strip contained different punch lines in two major metropolitan daily newspapers. In the final panel of four, Jeremy tells a clerk at a paint counter that he wants "Three gallons of 'Purple Nurple'" in Newsday,[66] while instead ordering "Three gallons of 'Twisted Nipple'" in the New York City Daily News.[67]

    Foreign versions[edit]

    Zits is published in French as Jérémie. This strip appeared in Canadian French-language newspapers on January 14, 2006.


    This section needs expansion with: sketchbook dates. You can help by adding to it.(May 2012)

    Zits comic strips are collected in two formats. The first is as a Zits Sketchbook and these are numbered sequentially. They contain approximately one year of collected Zits strips. The second format is as a Zits Treasury. This format combines the material from the two previous "sketchbooks". The treasuries entitled My Bad, Triple Shot, Double Pump, No Whip Zits, Zits en Concert, and Peace, Love & Wi-Fi however, are all-new material. In 2013, the Scott and Borgman created an illustrated novel entitled "Zits: Chillax" based on their comic strip.[68][69][70]
