Overview

House cats are known to be aloof, but "cat-titude" reaches new heights in Groovitude, the first color treasury of cartoonist Darby Conley's hilarious comic strip. Since its debut in 1999, Get Fuzzy has rocketed to the top of the charts. Now appearing in 250 newspapers, the strip has become a hit with its bitingly funny portrait of single life with pets—pets with attitude.

There's nothing soft and fuzzy about the four-legged friends in Get Fuzzy, which features Rob Wilco, a single, mild-mannered advertising executive who's the so-called guardian of Bucky Katt and Satchel Pooch. Between the three of them, the Wilco household faces a whole host of trials and tribulations that make them a family. Satchel wants his boundaries respected. Bucky refuses to eat vegetables but insists on snarfing up Rob's plants. Rob tries to meet women, but his pets continually subvert his efforts. In every frame, Get Fuzzy depicts the humorous war between the species, giving the animals equal footing in hilarious one-upmanship.

An illustrator and former elementary school teacher, Darby Conley was born in Concord, Massachusetts, but spent most of his childhood in Knoxville, Tennessee. He attended Amherst College where he drew cartoons for the daily newspaper, the Amherst Student, and earned a fine-arts degree in 1994. He taught second and fourth grades in Northampton, Massachusetts, from 1994 to 1996 and serve as art director for a children's museum from 1996 to 1998.
