This bitingly funny portrait of single life with pets is one of the popular cartoons in newspaper syndication. Rob Wilco is the human who heads the household, but it's really Bucky who's in charge, a temperamental feline with serious 'cat-titude.' Satchel is a gentle pooch with a sensitive soul who tries to remain neutral but frequently ends up on the receiving end of Buck ...more

I like very few comics, and most of the ones I loved aren't in the papers anymore: Gary Larson's The Far Side, Nicole Hollander's Sylvia cartoons and Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes. I've been enjoying the Sunday version of Get Fuzzy, and thought I'd try and go way back to get a feel for its origins. Get Fuzzy is about an ad guy, Rob, and his two pets, a dog named Satchel and a single-fanged Siamese cat named Bucky.

At least in the beginning, Get Fuzzy is notable for Satchel and Bucky that are

Hay veces que lees tiras cómicas obligado.

Son tiras sobre un hombre, su gato y su perro. No, no es Garfield. El perro es bobalicón y bienintencionado, el humano es un adorno despersonalizado y el gato es cínico y olvidadizo. No es muy cliché, pero tampoco es muy original.

El apartado gráfico es correcto. Son tiras, dibujo rápido y de fórmulas simples. Cuando tiene que dibujar alguna figura humana un poco difícil (niños, por ejemplo) no lo hace muy bien, pero son tiras, no pasa nada.

Maybe I'm just not into it anymore. Or maybe it's because I've read this book before. I didn't find myself enjoying it a whole lot. I have a few of these Darby Conley books set aside to read one last time before donating and after reading this one again, I may just donate the rest without spending the time. They're great comics and capture dog/cat/human humor quite well. It's just maybe that I live with it 24/hours a day, the cats, and so it's less humorless now.

Recommends it for: anyone needing to laugh out loud, fans of cartoon strip books
It's easy to tell while reading this that it is early in the comic strip progress. the art is sharper and less mainstream, and the humor, at least the pet's behavior, tends to be much more dramatic/ mean. I still laughed out loud multiple times throughout this very easy read (and thanked God my cats aren't like that). It was worth the purchase and read--but it has gotten even better in the time since he wrote these.

Can't get enough of and the "Get Fuzzy" comic strip. With tremendously smart humor, Darby Conley captures the essence and personalities of pets and humanizes it. A "Garfield" for the thoughtful comic connoisseur.

Darby Conley is a great comic artist and this book is one of his best. Filled with pet humor and just normal everyday life humor, this book should please just about everyone. A great laugh! Rob has two pets, one a dog that is in a world all his own and a cat that needs some major pyscological help. A great book to laugh to.

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.

Recommended to Sam by: Actually, I got it at a garage sale.
I love this book! Actually, I love ALL Get Fuzzy books. But this one is a CLASSIC! The first Get Fuzzy book to get published. It's a HILARIOUS book about a cat named Bucky (the evil one), a dog named Satchel (the nieve one), and Rob (the owner). Rob struggles with life with, you guessed it, Bucky Katt. A MUST READ!!!!!!!

I think this is about the sixth book I've read in this collection and I am becoming more addicted as I read them. This is so typical of living with both a dog and a cat - I actually laughed out loud. So glad I discovered these.

In this Get Fuzzy comic strip, you'll find the temperamental cat named Bucky who reeks havoc on the gentle pooch named Satchel and their owner, Rob. This has many laughs and jokes throughout the entire book, and can't get enough of it.

Get Fuzzy is a comic about a cat (Bucky), a dog (Satchel), and their human (Rob). It's like Garfield, but funny. This being the first book, I highly recommend it for the uninitiated. I'm not sure what else to write, except that it's really funny. That is all.

A collection of comic strips/panels about a Shar-Pei/Lab dog living with a Siamese cat with their owner.
Satchel-- the loving, innocent dog who just wants everyone to get along.
Bucky-- the mischief-making cat who dgaf.

In other words, this is my life now.

Another hilarious and beautifully drawn collection. I love the multiple perspectives from which he draws his strips, and the minute details he puts into them, like a tiny Chuck Close print hanging on the characters' apartment wall.

I love reading comic books when I don't want to stay up too late reading. This has to be pretty much my favorite comic strip right now.

Darby is a hilarious cartoonist and a breath of fresh air. Even if you don't like animals, you'll still probably find this funny.
