-->--Final panel of June 17, 1917 strip
strip.




One of the klassic newspaper komics of the '20s areas, it was published between the years of 1913 and 1944 in the New York Evening Journal. It was drawn by George Herriman and exhibited surreal, American Southwest-themed artwork and often focused on aesthetics over humor. This kaused it to alienate much of its audience; it only remained in the newspaper as long as it did because it was a favorite of Evening Journal publisher William Randolph Hearst.

The story revolves around the title kharacter and his/her (gender is never set, and strips often switch between the two, sometimes in the middle of one komic) obsessive love with the downright evil Ignatz Mouse, who hates Krazy and loves nothing more than to throw bricks at his/her head. Krazy being, well, krazy, takes this as a sign of love. In the meanwhile, Krazy Kat is actually loved by, of all things, a ''dog'' - Officer Bull Pupp, a police officer who is ever vigilant of Krazy and makes it his life purpose to prevent Ignatz from throwing bricks at all, hauling him off to jail when he's kaught in the act.

While the komic never kaught on with a mainstream audience, it remains an influence to kartoonists to this day; Bill Watterson of ''[[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Kalvin and Hobbes]]'' fame cites it as a major influence and featured Kalvin's parents admiring a Krazy Kat strip in a museum in one Sunday strip. Even before then, Ignatz himself went on to be a MauveShirt in the Mort Walker/Jeff Dumas vehikle, ''ComicStrip/SamsStrip'' in the 1960s.

Kollections of ''Krazy Kat'' komics were notoriously difficult to find for many years, and the first few serious attempts at komplete kollections were scuttled by the publishers going under. Finally, in the 2000s and 2010s, Fantagraphics managed to release a komplete series of Sunday strip collections, ''Krazy & Ignatz''.

There have been several animated adaptations of ''Krazy Kat'' made; none of them were very klose to the source material, however--aside from maybe [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tMlMi4OJUo this one.]] ''Krazy Kat'' also achieved the unusual distinction of being adapted into a jazz ballet by John Alden Carpenter.

* AnimalJingoism: Averted like "Krazy" with the main LoveTriangle--a dog who loves a kat who loves a mouse. Played straight with Ignatz's hatred of Krazy, although he's the aggressor (and a FriendlyEnemy). [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in a strip where Krazy suffers from a regression to normal kat behavior and tries to eat Ignatz. And to top it all off, the "katfish" and "dogfish" are portrayed as natural enemies.

* AnthropomorphicShift: Krazy first appeared in "The Dingbat Family" as a rather ordinary-looking pet kat. Eventually, Ignatz appeared and the two gradually bekame a komedy team until they got their own strip, free from the konfinement of human ownership.

** In one strip involving Officer Pup and Krazy alternately popping up behind a wall, the poster on the wall is konstantly changing, but it's always something in Spanish. It should be noted that in one frame where Ignatz sees Krazy, the poster reads "Ratón Muerto"[[labelnote:es]]"Dead Mouse"[[/labelnote]] with an image of a ''ratón muerto'' on it.

* BodyguardCrush: Officer Pupp's krush on Krazy seems to spring from his konstant need to defend the Kat.
* BoringButPractical: One strip had Krazy telling Door Mouse how impractical it is karrying a door all the time. However, he/she fails to notice the practical uses the door has while babbling at length about how it doesn't have any, including its use as a makeshift bridge, or to fling back a brick thrown by Ignatz.
* BreakoutCharacter: Ignatz and Krazy developed as a space-filling gag in Herriman's earlier strip ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyUpstairs.'' As far as minor characters go, Gooseberry Sprig was the main character in another earlier strip of Herriman's, ''Gooseberry Sprig.''
* CatsHaveNineLives: Okkasionally referenced with regard to Krazy. In one kartoon, we find out that he has three of his lives insured--"When I get rich I'll ensure the other six."

* CoincidentalDodge: A RunningGag--Krazy would bend down to talk to a smaller creature, such as a "woim", just as the brick was thrown.
* ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere: In the 1918 New Year's strip, Ignatz makes a resolution to stop throwing bricks at Krazy. He soon encounters bricks (and references to bricks) everywhere he goes, and when Krazy flat-out ''hands'' him a brick, it's too much and he pulls some quick LoopholeAbuse. He didn't swear not to throw ''stones'', did he?

This partially akounts for the strip's lack of klear gender; at one point Krazy loudly 'breaks up' with Ignatz as the stork walks by, explaining afterwards that he/she doesn't want Joe to take their relationship the wrong way.

* AntagonistInMourning: In one Sunday strip, Krazy falls down a waterfall, and Ignatz cheers in delight. Krazy spends the rest of the strip on an underwater adventure with his kousin Krazy Katfish. Toward the end, we see Ignatz mourning what he believes to be the untimely loss of his enemy, sobbing into a handkerchief and lamenting the "cruel" way he treated Krazy. (This doesn't stop him from snapping out of it and smashing Krazy with a brick as soon as the Kat announces his presence.)
