5.0 out of 5 stars Darby Conley's Funniest Book Yet 6 Nov 2003
If you've never seen Get Fuzzy before, you're in for a treat: Already excitingly different from most cartoon strips, Darby Conley has managed to excel himself and produce some of his most interesting/cute/funny work in "Blueprint For Disaster",
Featuring the main story arc of the escalation of the conflict between Bucky and Mr. Squiggly (some of the funniest character-based humour I’ve ever experienced – it made me laugh out loud) this book only has one or two quiet moments (a Garfield-like rejected characters file – oh dear) that can be forgiven simply by having the wonderful French joke on page 73 of the same book.
Satchel is as innocent, as trusting, and er, as doggy as ever and manages to soften the strip making it far funnier and gentler, completing the main ménagerie a trios with Rob and Bucky. Rob still tries to have a life of his own (and fails) and would love to meet J-Lo, just he’s not thinking of the same person as the rest of us…
The art is as crisp as ever with lots of little in-jokes (similar to those wonderful bits Bill Amend slips into Foxtrot) including a number of Harry Potter inspired throw-away gags (e.g. Bucky has a Slytherin poster on his closet door). Sadly there are less of these than in previous collections, luckily the strong storyline makes up for it.
Possibly the best and funniest Get Fuzzy book yet and definitely the most complete due to the Bucky/Mr. Squiggly conflict. The book is worth about four and three-quarter stars, so we’ll round it up to five. Nice one Darb!

Book described and shipped promptly and securely. Grandaughter very pleased to receive a new Fuzzy book, but still prefers her old one (Get Fuzzy!) to be read to her!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy Logic 15 Dec 2010
By Mimble
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You know it makes sense. And you have to laugh, regardless. This is a really good collection with some real 'laugh out loud til you cry' moments. Delightfully distracting and wonderfully observed. So good I could eat another one, right now, in fact!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost a Novel 3 Nov 2003
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Bucky, the no-redeeming-qualities cat, and Satchel, the loveable-but-clueless dog, are back. In the Get Fuzzy world, cats and dogs can talk and humans have no problem with it. Bucky and Satchel are Rob's two pets and the three of them make a hilarious household. The almost continuous story arc makes this read more like a novel than a collection of individual strips.
In this volume you will see such things as:
The International Conference of Dogs
The Cat Conference to take over the world
Bucky take on the ferret next door
Bucky loose his fang
Bucky sue the ferret on Judge Judy
If you liked the other Get Fuzzy collections, you will love this one. If you are new, be prepared for animals that are not as cuddly as those in other strips.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satchel fix 21 Oct 2003
By L. Carroll - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Get Fuzzy is the funniest cartoon currently in print and this collection is full of smiles. The only downpoint to this collection is the fact that unlike the first three; this one has no color strips. The Sunday strips are included but they are in black and white. Since they are slightly darker than the daily strips you loose some of the detail and they are a bit harder to see. I really wish the publisher had put the Sunday strips in color but other than that this collection is great! (And includes some classics such as Bucky losing his fang to Fungo the Ferret and Bucky's appearance on Judge Judy.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bucky Goes To Small Claims Court! 9 Nov 2003
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on
I have liked 'Get Fuzzy' since it's inception, and this is the best of the books to date. Darby Conley certainly knows the difference between cats and dogs and why each are lovable in their own way (yes, even uni-fanged Siamese cats)!
Of particular note is the Judge Judy series wherein Bucky sues Fungo the Ferret for damages after Bucky loses his fang while trying to snare Fungo. Be sure to check out the Cat and Dog conferences, too!
If you like 'Get Fuzzy' or just love animals, you will love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars I think I remember my brother falling off the couch laughing 26 Sep 2004
By The Crystalline Entity - Published on
My sister gave me this book last Christmas. My siblings and I (we're 13, 16, 18, and 20) had already gotten hooked on the strip through the books we got from the library, and this was the first one we bought. As my title says, I think I remember my brother collapsing off our couch on Christmas Day because he was laughing so hard. It's THAT funny.

"Get Fuzzy" gets better and better as you get to know the characters. I haven't seen such brilliantly hysterical social commentary, flat-out funny nonsense, and humorous diatribes on all life's ills since "Calvin & Hobbes," which I still maintain as the greatest comic strip on the planet. So, spend a little time, get to know Rob, Bucky, and Satchel (with a just a smidgin of imagination, they'll immediately remind you of people you already know), and you'll enjoy this strip even more.

Darby Conley is on a roll, and he is a funny, funny man.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Bucky Time!!! 7 Nov 2003
By James Duckett - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are very few comic strips that I like anymore. In fact, I now only go out of my way to read two strips, and this is one of them.
Darby Conley is great!!! I love his work. I was really excited to pick this book up and read of some of the mischief that Bucky and Satchel find themselves in. This even has Bucky going so far as taking the Ferret next door to Judge Judy.
The humor is fantastic. The contrast between Bucky and Satchel makes for great comedy. There were many parts where I was giggling and a few parts where I was laughing out loud.
I'm looking forward to picking up more of "Get Fuzzy".
