Subject: BS: Any Fans of Bucky Katt out there?

He's a comic character: a crabby, rotten, egocentric siamese cat who is almost always in a bad mood. He's a nice antidote to Garfield, in my opinion, and somewhat more like a real cat in some (though not all) respects. He has even had a courtroom run-in with Judge Judy, where he attempted to misuse the law. He did not succeed.

Anyone else enjoying the exploits of Bucky, Satchell, and their hapless owner?

I am a MAJOR fan, LH. I started a thread awhile back trying to translate the Cat from England who is visiting. I have all the collected strips thatl have come out in book form and am on the waiting list for the new one that will be coming out soon.

I'm a fan. The comic strip runs in the Detroit Free Press, one of the best things about the Detroit Free Press, along with "Frazz" and that one about the pig, the rat and the crocodiles who live next door to the zebras.

Scoville, Bucky is cleary a nasty little jerk who is devoid of redeeming qualities, but the mere fact that he is so egocentric that he really doesn't realize he's a jerk (he thinks something's wrong with everyone else...) is what makes it funny, I think. ;-)

I've also known Siamese cats who were a wee bit like Bucky...although I wouldn't say that of most Siamese cats.

It took a while to grow on me (kind of like a fungus), but I'm definitely a fan now.   Bucky is an evil little bastard, but all cat lovers, if they're honest, know one like him.

Yes, there's just something adorable about Bucky. Maybe it's the crossed eyes.

Satchell, now, could get on a person's nerves.

We have a new neighbor who built a six-foot fence all around her place, the first serious fence here in 100 years. We call her "the zeeba neighbor."

Geez! I hit the wrong key there. I was gonna say that I love that Get Fuzzy comic, and Liberty Meadows too, even though the Korean guy who writes it pretends that he's a chimp all the time. The only thing that could possibly be better than Liberty Meadows would be a comic about my adventures.

And hey, Guest, the comic ain't gay! Rob has been tryin' to date women for years, and he actually did date a couple in the early days of the comic, but Bucky always screws things up and they get scared off. Lately I think that Rob has more or less given up hope of successfully dating any more women or finding a happy relationship with one, but he's definitely not gay.

Not a fan. Bucky's a type that occurs throughout the entertainment media. The strip is simply a reflection of the contemporary crap-culture, which is a shame.

My memories go back to Walt Kelly's developed characterizations in Pogo, where the depiction of a sociopathic personality had a purpose beyond glorifying trash-talk and adolescent put-downs.

well said, Guest, Nope. Not a fan either, I find it pretty ridiculous, not at all humerous, sometimes annoying, but since I could learn to read, I read cereal box information, anything, and every comic whether I enjoy them or not, with the exception of Cathy, Ziggy, Spiderman, Family Circus, and Marmaduke (all totally worthless). I wish our paper (Cleveland) published Boondocks, or some other more relevant, contemporary comics.

I'd agree with you on most of those "worthless" comics...but not necessarily Cathy. Why? Because it's a satire on the insecurities of modern women (primarily) and men (secondarily) and it pokes fun at many of the most ridiculous aspects of modern culture...such as rampant consumerism ("If I just buy enough stuff, then I'll be happy...") or fashion trends. As such, it has a lot to say. If you don't like it, it's merely because it has a style that doesn't appeal to you personally, but it's not devoid of real content.

The others? Yeah, they're useless. Mort Walker and Dick Browne are responsible for several lacklustre comics, like Hagar the Horrible, Beatle Bailey, Hi and Lois...all of which are not downright terrible (like Ziggy), but merely mediocre. Then there are the dreadful old chestnuts like Nancy...(its only redeeming feature is an occasional appearance by Aunt Fritzy)...or Henry! Man, talk about Baaaaad comics!

Get Fuzzy is a neat comic if you like clever use of the English language...the subtle approach to verbal combat. If you don't, I'd imagine its value is completely lost on you.

I agree that it doesn't nearly come up to the level of Walt Kelly's "Pogo" which was a brilliant comic in every way.

Pogo was, well, the best. But there have been many recent comics out there, too:

Calvin and Hobbes
Bloom County
Boondocks
Sherman's Lagoon
Sally Forth
and others.

In the old category:

L'il Abner
Krazy Kat
Asterix
Tintin
Buck Rogers
and others, including the Yellow Kid.

But because taste is so subjective, I don't think that anyone can say that "THIS is the best of the best!"

LOVE that cat. My own feline, Sullivan, had morphed well before I'd ever seen the comic. He was originally named after "Sully's Bucket". Naturally, his slave name has changed over the years: Sull, Sullivan, Sullybucket, Pudgebucket, and of course, "Bucky". The last incarnation being found true to form after reading the comic. Every day is another laugh about our curious existance.

Starting from top to bottom on my comics page: Dilbert, Foxtrot, Get Fuzzy, Zits, Pearls Before Swine, Over the Hedge. The rest aren't worth noticing, in my opinion. It took a while for me to like Get Fuzzy, but it's grown on me. At least the artwork is good. (oh, yeah, I forgot, Rose is Rose, which I usually only read on Sundays, because the artwork is incredible).

The middle years of Doonsberry were astounding.

Once you were "into the visual jokes" you noticed the little things from frame to frame...a glass of lemonade, becoming a soda-can, and then a beer-can, and then a high-ball or martini-with-olive...all in the same setting. Backgrounds, clothing, light-fixtures...all were part of the "Visual Irony."

Irony - dramatic, situational, verbal....but, visual? Perhaps, Garry Trudeau and even Crumb with ZAP created a new form.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Guest Molly above mentioned Achewood. You can find it at www.achewood.com. It's a brilliant online cartoon with nearly daily installments, and easily the best cartoon strip since since Pogo. You can look back through a few years of archives, and track the development of the great characters, many of which are cats.

Seriously, it makes Bucky seem like a one-note joke, and other contemporary on-line strips seem juvenile.

Yeah, but it's a bit annoying to see modern suburban North American cultural BS superimposed on a comic that's supposedly about a Viking, don't you think? Good for a chuckle now and then, I suppose...but not what I'd call a really good comic.
