This "Get Fuzzy" anthology is a fun, light book. It is ideal reading for the bathroom, or just some relaxing ease into sleep reading at the end of a long day.
I rate it 3.5 stars simply because the collection, as well as the strip as a whole, is not consistently funny. In fact, there are a few times in this collection when it is oddly not funny at all. Thankfully those moments are few and far between, and the anthology shines when Bucky the cat is railing against Wilco's perceived liberal (and th

I don't know if it's physically impossible to rate a Get Fuzzy book at fewer than five stars. Even when the jokes fall flat, the goofy art carries you over the finish line.

Bad cartoons (Drabble, Garfield) have no punch lines to speak of...just retreads of what may once, in the author's mind at least, been an amusing finish.

Good cartoons (Get Fuzzy, One Big Happy, Sally Forth) have comic lines in most, if not all, panels.

Darb may be a pink vegetarian pacifist with negative machismo, but he gets t

The Potpourrific Great Big Bag of Get Fuzzy is Conley's fourth Get Fuzzy treasury, and includes strips from 'I'm Ready For My Movie Contract' and 'Take Our Cat, Please!'

This treasury has some hilarious strips, such as Bucky writing screenplays for Hollywood, and Satchel keeping a diary and writing letters.

Never has Darby Conley steered me wrong :)
Another great graphic novel treasury !
You meet Robert Wilco's brother , Roger Wilco
There is a great section on cat and dog facts
And hilarity ensues while continually wrenches his back and is out of commission !!!

This is the newest Get Fuzzy Treasury. It's overall very good, but doesn't have as many favorites as the past treasuries. As always, Bucky Katt is horrible and yet oh so wonderful. If you love Get Fuzzy, this is 247-pages of mirth. I bought one for me and one to give my mom for Christmas.

Get Fuzzy is the new generation of Garfield. Attitude and no class he's always beating on the dog. I can't get enough of Bucky Katt and his love of fish and hatred of all things ferret!

A cat, a dog, and a human share an apartment. It sounds basic enough, but the talking animals and a lot of imagination make it funny.

I didn't laugh out loud as much with this volume, but it does contain one of my favorite Bucky Katt quotes of all time: "Correction, I was up to fabulous."
