Blueprint for Disaster: A Get Fuzzy Collection (Get Fuzzy #4)

You have to wonder what kind of pets cartoonist Darby Conley had as a child. If they were anything like Bucky Katt and Satchel Pooch. . . well, life in the Conley house must have been interesting to say the least. The wacky triumvirate of Bucky, Satchel, and Rob are back in the fourth Get Fuzzy collection, Blueprint for Disaster, and ?interesting? doesn?t begin to describe

Does anything say 'weekend' more than the funny pages?
Darby Conley's Get Fuzzy is on of the funniest of the pages, and Blueprint for Disaster is a top-notch collection.
I've probably read this collection four or five times all the way through, it's been in the house since I was eight.
Part of how I learned to read was Sunday comic pages and collections like this one, which also fueled a love of anything sequential art.
I've read plenty of paperback omnibuses like this one, most of them Gary Larson'

My son and I have found a new comic book series to read - we have exhausted Calvin and Hobbes and Foxtrot and even Garfield and Sonic. So, now we are moving on to even more sarcasm with Bucky, the hateful and crazy Siamese and Satchel the shar-pei lab mix along with their exasperated owner, Rob. Too cute and a great way to teach my son about world events like Judge Judy and TIVO (hah!)A great way to bond and share, highly recommend this series for young adults who know all about quirky animals.

Recommends it for: cartoon cat lovers!
This book is hilarious! My friend Alicia asked me if I had ever heard of this comic strip and of course I had not. But I'm glad she told me about it.

Bucky is a cat who is loud mouthed, angry, stinks, lives in a closet, has one fang hanging out which is so cute, his arch nemesis is a ferret, and lives with a dog and his person.

Think of Garfield but maybe without his meds (Garfield would have to take meds if he was like Bucky)

One of my collections contains cartoons from this book, but either it doesn't contain all of them, or I have a bad memory. Either way, I'm glad I grabbed this out of the library. Is it weird that I often sympathize with Bucky? I am a cat person ...

Many thanks to Jen Thomas for loaning me this Get Fuzzy book (which is not technically a graphic novel, but I don't have a "comics" shelf). My favorite parts were the use of "a-yup" as an affirmative, and the Leo horoscope on p. 50.

I love this strip so much. I laugh, I cry, I wet myself. The pacing is unique in that so many punchlines are in panels other than the last.

My all-time favorite comic strip.

Laughed out loud a few times, so I say it's worth the trip to the library!

I like his newer stuff better, but this was still funny. I stopped and showed Molly several of these as I went along.

Darb Conley is a great humorist when it comes to showing the lives of pet owners and the crazy pets they call friends. If you're into laugh out loud humor, you'll love his work and this book!
This was a re-read for me, I picked up the first book of the collected comics years ago and have been a huge fan of the cranky Bucky Katt and sweet Satchel Pooch ever since.

One of the funniest series of comic strips around. Gotta love the interactions of the pets. Their characterizations are endearing.

There were a few that make me laugh, but it's mostly pretty average.

I understand it's a lot funnier if you own both cats and dogs.

Read this because my girlfriend loves Get Fuzzy. I say, "meh, but worth a few laughs."

I've enjoyed these collections, but they aren't classics of comic strip humor. I think the daily strip has grown a little stale, a least that last time I followed it about a year ago.

Lots of laugh out loud moments. Glad to add this book to my collection.

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.

As a dog lover and a cat tolerator, I can appreciate the Get Fuzzy comics. I recommend any of the Get Fuzzy collection to dog and/or cat owners. The comics range from hilarious to quirky to witty, and the sarcasm is just downright beautiful.
