'''Strizz''' was a German ComicStrip that ran from 2002-10 in the conservative German FAZ newspaper. It tells about the life of the bookkeeper Strizz, his family, his boss, their pets, and some related folks, with many hijinks. Definitely better than it sounds.

* Strizz: A young man (early thirties - we guess) who works as a bookkeeper at Leo & co. Very enthusiastic, with big dreams, but not that great in making them come true.

* Strizz: A young man (early thirties - we guess) who works as a bookkeeper at Leo & co. Very enthusiastic, with big dreams, but not that great in making them come true.
* Herr Leo: Owner of the company, thus Strizz' boss. Would prefer if Strizz just did his work.
* Raphael: Strizz' young nephew. Owns a number of toys, and likes to stage elaborate discussions with them.
* Irmi: A painter. Once Strizz dialed a wrong number and got her on the phone. She liked his voice, though, and stored his phone number. Given enough time, something developed from it.
* Herr Paul: The cat of Herr Leo.
* Müller: Irmi's dachshund.
* Tassilo: A guard dog.

!!Examples:

* CatsAreMean: Herr Paul often rips up the newspapers and curtains in his house and gets cranky if he doesn't get first-class cat food. The other cats are less so.

* ComicBookTime: Averted. We see Rafael grow, and two babies born, who develop over time. Not in RealTime, but they do.
* ConsultingMisterPuppet: Raphael and his toys (one of which is even named "Herr Teddy"), who form the "philosophical sextet". Justified because Raphael is a kid.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In one early strip, we see Raphael's toys [[LivingToy come alive]] at night. This would stay the only time, though.
* EverythingsBetterWithChocolate: Especially for Raphael.
