Book Description

Chances are the warm fuzzies aren't what you will get when you pick up Ignorance, Thy Name Is Bucky. Instead, you'll get LOL moments as Darby Conley pumps hilarity into living the single life with pets.

The family portrait: Rob Wilco, the tallest member of the family, is a single, mild-mannered ad executive who pays the bills and often the price, thanks to his curious and anthropomorphic housemates. Rob gives guidance and all sorts of "material" to Bucky, a temperamental cat, who clearly wears the fur pants in the family. Satchel, a good-hearted pooch, plays neutral, but usually ends up on the receiving end of Bucky's mischief.

"Thanks for Get Fuzzy, the funniest comic strip on planet Earth. Sweet-natured Satchel Pooch and the utterly crazed Bucky B. Katt are much more fun than Odie and Garfield." --Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

* Three Get Fuzzy collections have become New York Times best-sellers: Bucky Katt's Big Book of Fun, Blueprint for Disaster, and Say Cheesy.

* Recognized as Best Comic Strip in 2002 by the National Cartoonists Society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Get Fuzzy Collection April 20, 2009
Format:Paperback
I picked this up over the weekend and read it one setting. What can I say? This is probably one of the best Get Fuzzy collections in a while, certainly the best since Scrum Bums. It also has an added bonus: Color Sunday strips, which is a wonderful improvement to the format. I can't say enough good things about this collection. It features Bucky at his best, including a series of strips where there is only one word said in the entire daily strip and Conley proves he can make you laugh with a single word. Pick up your copy today. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignorance Isn't Always Bliss March 11, 2010
Format:Paperback
I enjoy reading a lot of different comics. Unfortunately, "Get Fuzzy" isn't one I particularly enjoy. I love Rob and Satchel, but I often find Bucky annoying. I guess it's because I'm more of a dog person than a cat person. I read "Get Fuzzy" because I enjoy comic strips and every once in awhile there is a storyline that I find really funny. Therefore, it was with a bit of reluctance that I picked up and read IGNORANCE, THY NAME IS BUCKY. After reading the book, I'm not sure why I was so leery. IGNORANCE, THY NAME IS BUCKY is a great collection of comic strips. It includes the series of strips where Bucky torments Satchel by just saying one word, the storyline where "Pearls Before Swine" characters and plotlines suddenly appear in "Get Fuzzy", and the opening of Bucky's art museum, and the introduction of Mac Manc McManx. Very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, as usual. April 12, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the latest collection from Darby Conley, and well worth adding to complete your collection. (You do, of course, have all of Mr. Conley's publications, don't you? If not, get them now!) In his work, Mr. Conley creates the graphic version of the sentiment underlying Whitman's Leaves of Grass section beginning, "I think I could turn and live with animals." Of course, Bucky calls into question the line, "They are so placid and self-contained." Yet Mr. Conley's respect for and connection with his fuzzy friends is just as profound, just as moving, and it makes you laugh from real deep in your heart. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignorance September 12, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've never read a bad comic of Get Fuzzy and this book is no exception. Chock full of funny panels, Bucky still calls Rob "Pinko" and mercilessly teases Satchel. One cat I'd love to introduce to my German Shepherd.

If you like Get Fuzzy, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Get Fuzzy collection! May 18, 2009
Format:Paperback
Not many comic strips make me laugh out loud. Get Fuzzy is an exception. Rob Wilco, Bucky Katt and Satchel Pooch are three of the best comic strip characters in publication today, and their antics always make me smile. Even the characters which only pop in occasionally such as Fungo Squiggly, Quentin Tabbytino and Mac Manc McManx will put a smile on your face.

If you've loved previous Get Fuzzy collections, you won't be disappointed by this one. If this is your first experience with Get Fuzzy, welcome aboard and make sure you pick up the previous collections--lots of laughs await you!

Bucky Katt strikes again! I rate this book somewhere between "The Pottpourrific Great Big Grab bag of Get fuzzy" and "Loserpalloza" (both GET FUZZY books!)
