Opinions in Get Fuzzy Edit

Darby Conley's pro-Vegan and far Left beliefs are voiced through Rob and to a lesser extent Satchel, and the Conservative Bucky is often a target of ridicule, but for the most part the strip is apolitical.

References in other Comic Strips Edit

Darby Conley is friends with Pearls Before Swine cartoonist Stephen Pastis, and as a result of this, Bucky and Satchel have made cameo appearances in Pearls. Additionally, Conley was the guest artist of a Dilbert strip.

Critical Reception Edit

According to the Washington Post, it is one of the three best comic strips in newspapers, the others being Pearls Before Swine and The Boondocks. Other newspaper critics give it a similar rating. However, there is a notable group of people who loathe the strip, most of whom use reviews as a platform, but who also count influential newspaper critics among their numbers. The reviews are generally complaints about Rob's "ugliness" and bogus claims that the strip is a rip-off of Garfield.
