Krazy Kat is an American newspaper comic strip by cartoonist George Herriman, which ran Print/export. Create a book · Download as PDF · Printable version.

Krazy Kat is such a pure and completely realized personal vision that the strip's inner mechanism is ultimately as unknowable as George Herriman. Nevertheless, I marvel at how this fanciful world could be so forcefully imagined and brought to paper with such immediacy. THIS is how good a comic strip can be. Interestingly, Krazy Kat gains its momentum less from the personalities of its characters than from their obsessions. Ignatz Mouse demonstrates his contempt for Krazy by throwing bricks at her; Krazy reinterprets the bricks as signs of love; and Offissa Pupp is obliged by duty and regard for Krazy to thwart and punish Ignatz's "sin," thereby interefering with a process that's satisfying to everyone for all the wrong reasons. Some 30 years of strips were wrung out of that amalgam of cross-purposes. The action can be read as a metaphor for love or politics, or just enjoyed for its lunatic inner logic and physical comedy. Despite the predictability of the characters' proclivities, the the strip never sinks into formula or routine.

Though the basic concept of the strip is simple, Herriman always found ways to tweak the formula.

Ignatz's plans to surreptitiously lob a brick at Krazy's head sometimes succeed; other times Officer Pupp outsmarts Ignatz and imprisons him.

The interventions of Coconino County's other anthropomorphic animal residents, and even forces of nature, occasionally change the dynamic in unexpected ways. Other strips have Krazy's imbecilic or gnomic pronouncements irritating the mouse so much that he goes to seek out a brick in the final panel. Even self-referential humor is evident—in one strip, Officer Pupp, having arrested Ignatz, berates Herriman for not having finished drawing the jailhouse.

But publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst loved Krazy Kat, and it continued to appear in his papers throughout its run, sometimes only by his direct order. Krazy's dialogue is a highly stylized argot "A fowl konspirissy — is it pussible? Krazy is also completely unaware of the bitter rivalry between Ignatz and "Offissa" Pupp and mistakes the dog's frequent imprisonment of the mouse for an innocent game of tag "Ever times I see them two playing games togedda, Ignatz seems to be It".

Krazy's own gender is never made clear and appears to be fluid, varying from strip to strip. Most authors post-Herriman beginning with Cummings have mistakenly referred to Krazy only as female, [13] but Krazy's creator was more ambiguous and even published several strips poking fun at this uncertainty. They have no sex. So that Kat can't be a he or a she.

The Kat's a spirit—a pixie—free to butt into anything. Behind the newspaper, Krazy is reading and describing aloud the very same cartoon in which they are all appearing. To shield his plans from Officer Pupp, Ignatz hides his bricks, disguises himself, or enlists the aid of willing Coconino County denizens without making his intentions clear.

Easing Ignatz's task is Krazy Kat's willingness to meet him anywhere at any appointed time, eager to receive a token of affection in the form of a brick to the head. Ignatz is married with three children, though they are rarely seen. Ironically, although Ignatz seems to generally dislike Krazy, one strip shows his ancestor, Mark Antony Mouse, fall in love with Krazy's ancestor, an Egyptian cat princess calling her his "Star of the Nile" , and pay a sculptor to carve a brick with a love message.

When he throws it at her, he is arrested, but she announces her love for him, and from that day on, he throws bricks at her to show his love for her which would explain why Krazy believes that Ignatz throwing bricks is a sign of love.

In another strip, Krazy kisses a sleeping Ignatz, and hearts appear above the mouse's head. In the last five or so years of the strip, Ignatz's dislike for Krazy was noticeably downplayed.

While earlier, one got the sense of his taking advantage of Krazy's willingness to be "bricked", now one gets the sense of Ignatz and Krazy as chummy co-conspirators against Pupp, with Ignatz at times quite aware of the positive way Krazy interprets his missiles. Officer Bull Pupp[ edit ] A police dog who loves Krazy, and always tries sometimes successfully to thwart Ignatz's desires to pelt Krazy Kat with bricks. Officer Pupp and Ignatz often try to get the better of each other even when Krazy is not directly involved, as they both enjoy seeing the other played for a fool.

He appears slightly less frequently than Krazy and Ignatz.

He is also the main character of his own short film series. Secondary characters[ edit ] Beyond these three, Coconino County is populated with an assortment of incidental, recurring characters. In one strip, Ignatz tries to trick him into dropping a brick onto Krazy's head from above. The character debuted in Gooseberry Sprig as the titular character's "Prime Minister.

Often Ignatz's source for projectiles, although he distrusts the mouse. Kwakk Wakk: a duck in a pillbox hat , a scold and busybody who frequently notices Ignatz in the course of his plotting and informs Officer Pupp. She is a social climber, attempting in one strip continuity to replace Pupp as police chief.

Other characters who make semi-frequent appearances are: Walter Cephus Austridge: a nondescript ostrich Bum Bil Bee: a transient, bearded insect Don Kiyote: an inconsequential heterodox Mexican coyote Mock Duck: a clairvoyant fowl of Chinese descent who operates a cleaning establishment. Ignatz also has relations; his family of look-alike mice includes his wife, Magnolia and a trio of equally unruly sons named Milton, Marshall and Irving. This comic chronicled the Dingbats' attempts to avoid the mischief of the mysterious unseen family living in the apartment above theirs and to unmask that family.

Herriman would complete the cartoons about the Dingbats, and finding himself with time left over in his 8-hour work day , filled the bottom of the strip with slapstick drawings of the upstairs family's mouse preying upon the Dingbats' cat.
