Get Fuzzy is a comic strip that fascinates me. There's a sensibility to it that's distinctly different from more traditional strips. The setup is fairly conventional: Rob Wilco is a bachelor who works in advertising.
He lives in an apartment with his dog, Satchel, and his cat, Bucky. So far, this could just as easily be Garfield. But what sets Get Fuzzy apart from most other strips is its sense of humor.
Darby Conley uses a much more character-based style than most. The strip is less about tradi Get Fuzzy is a comic strip that fascinates me. The strip is less about traditional gag-a-day jokes and more about throwing his cast into situations that they can react to. Satchel is loveable but clueless. Bucky is scheming but ineffectual. And Rob tends to waver between bemused and exasperated by the exploits of his … well, technically they're pets, but they act more like a cross between roommates and children depending on the situation.
Add in a dollop of geek humor and just plain odd references Rob is a rugby fan, for instance and you have a winning combination. It's also nice to see, in this age of Dilberts and Garfields and Pearls Before Swine, some art with actual detail in it for a change.

Bucky Katt's Big Book of Fun: Get Fuzzy - Comics by comiXology
I really enjoyed this book as I usually do when it comes to these Get Fuzzy comics. I was just a little disappointed though that only the first pages were of new material that I had not read while the last half was page for page what I read a few weeks ago in another book.

Personally I'd give this book like 3 stars, but my 8 year old son loves it, so it gets 4. I felt that a lot of the stuff in it is just really dated and chock full of late 90's or early 's humor that just isn't very relevant these days. It's a fun read though and Bucky makes it all worth while and his ongoing feud with the weasel is pretty hilarious. Oct 09, Rick rated it it was amazing.

If you are a fan of the funny page or comics or Bucky Katt then this collection from Darby Conley is the book for you. Jun 25, Wendell Crouse rated it really liked it. I love the surrealism, But I've never met a cat like Bucky. Feb 23, Carly Kirk rated it it was amazing. Love Get Fuzzy! Some of these had me laughing so hard my cats were looking at me funny - bet they wish they could talk I'd get lots of snarky comments, I'm sure.

In this tresury, it features a ferret moving in next door, which Bucky doesn't approve of, and causes him to lose his tooth. It also features Satchel chasing a guy on a bike, and causing him to go to the vet, as well as having a dog conference.
I love how Bucky makes a new rivalry with something or someone, and Satchel is always loveable. Get Fuzzy always makes me laugh. Gotta love the Judge Judy strips in this treasury. I first picked up a Get Fuzzy book back in the early s to get my daughters to stop reading Garfield. It worked, and became a gateway for them to discovering the world of Manga and Bone. The strip had its heyday somewhere around and this volume pretty much covers that period. Be warned that there is nothing new here, so if you read the other collections then this will all be review.
I picked this up just to have a quick nostalgic read and was happy to find that the humor holds u Fun! I picked this up just to have a quick nostalgic read and was happy to find that the humor holds up for the most part. Oct 03, David Caldwell rated it it was amazing Shelves: cartoon , humorous , series , collection. When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want or have the time to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series.
These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public. Oct 15, Dave Woods rated it really liked it. Unlike Garfield, Bucky is a cat that is actually funny and you can't help but laugh at his cat-like shenanigans. Satchel Pooch the shar-pei dog is naive as they come but it only adds to the hilarity the household of three run into on the daily. I recommend this book if you want a good laugh.

Right off the bat I have to say is that more often than not I went: What the? My recommendation is to read, nonstop, through two of his treasuries. Then you'll get it. Once you do Conley is a genius at showing how different personalities get along and how poignant his messages are. These books are very funny and just fun to show the crazy and messed up ones to your friends. Jun 14, lamarcus brown rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously. Recommended to lamarcus by: yuki. The funniest comic strip I've ever read.
Darby is amazingly clever; I've read all of these books several times and they never cease to make me laugh. The two pets were named for the baseball players Bucky O'Neil and Satchel Paige , and the owner was named for two friends called Rob and Wilco. Called "a solid hit for such an oddball newcomer" by Coury Turczyn in an essay for Pop Cult magazine, "Get Fuzzy" chronicles the happenings of the mischievous and surly feline Bucky and the gentle, yet immature dog, Satchel, who are, according to Turczyn, "locked in eternal struggle. Davenport, on the Nya-Nya Web site, noted: "The strip's trio of Bucky, a single-fanged, self-centered cat; Satchel, a simple-minded dog; and Rob, their harried owner, has gained a foothold, or paw-hold, with readers.
In an interview with contributor Jamie Gumbrecht on the Web log It's All About …, Conley said of Rob Wilco: "I do have a little notebook of compiled notes where I remind myself that I need to get him out of the house, get him a girlfriend and stuff. I keep coming back to, like, psychotic animals confusing everything. It's all to do with what entertains me. I'm aware that he needs to expand a little more.
I got sued for what I thought was making a joke about a local celebrity, which did not turn out to be a joke. However, for Conley, toning down the content does not equate to spending less time on the comic. Conley puts lots of details into his art, and uses interesting angles to fit the tall Rob Wilco in the same frame with the short Bucky Katt and Satchel Pooch.
The comic was syndicated in within a limited number of newspapers, and it has since grown exponentially, being serialized in over daily publications and reaching an audience of over thirty million, according to the United Media Licensing Web site. Conley resides in Boston, Massachusetts.
