[[quoteright:205:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_lackadaisy_characters_stacked_9047.jpg]]

A webcomic by Tracy J. Butler set during Prohibition-era St. Louis, ''[[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/ Lackadaisy]]'' follows the exploits of the Lackadaisy crew, a formerly prosperous crime gang fallen on hard times after the murder of their boss, Atlas May. Now under the leadership of Mitzi, widow of the 'businessman', they attempt to make a living in the criminal underworld of St. Louis. Their major opposition comes from the Marigold gang, headed by Atlas's former partner and filled with former Lackadaisy employees.

The LoveableRogue protagonist is Rocky Rickaby, a jazz violinist turned whiskey and gin runner for the Lackadaisy gin joint. He's a bit [[CrazyAwesome eccentric]], to say the least. Wild escapades abound as Rocky struggles to do right by Mitzi, the only person 'kind' enough to give him a job in these tough times. Joining him on these less-than-legal adventures are his young cousin Calvin 'Freckle' [=McMurray=], a quiet, earnest youth rejected from the police force because of his, er, [[TheBerserker enthusiasm]]; and longtime Lackadaisy 'employee' Viktor Vasko, a surly, grizzled one-eyed Slovak with [[HandicappedBadass bad knees]]. Rounding out the cast are Sedgewick 'Wick' Sable, mining magnate and Mitzi's current paramour, Ivy Pepper, Atlas's goddaughter and Lackadaisy hanger-on; and Dorian 'Zib' Zibowski, the sardonic saxophonist.

And [[FunnyAnimal they're all anthropomorphic cats]].

The series is very much a tongue-in-cheek affair with a serious plot line and strong characterizations. [[SugarWiki/AwesomeArt The artwork is of a high professional level]], first published by [=ReNoir=] Comics in Italy and now published in English by 4th Dimension Comics for a North American release. English version available for purchase [[http://www.4thdimensionentertainment.com/product_details.php?pid=4 here]] or other major book stores.

Now has a [[Characters/{{Lackadaisy}} character page]]. Please put all character related tropes there.

----
!!This webcomic provides examples of:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: A-E]]
* AllThereInTheManual: Much of the back stories of the characters are only alluded to in the comic itself, while much more is elaborated on in supplementary material, such as Viktor serving in World War 1, his partnership with Mordecai, etc....
* AnyoneCanDie: [[WordOfGod Tracy]] has answered on her forum that ''yes'', one of the main characters will die.
* ArsonMurderAndJayWalking: Played to a T in this quote:
-->'''Lacy''': "Headlamps, Mr. Sable."\\
'''Wick''': "Right, where would I be without you, Miss Lacy?"\\
'''Lacy''': "Hopelessly trapped in the twisted wreckage of your car. Mangled limbs. Probably on fire... With your tax records all out of order."
* ArtEvolution: Not that it even needed it from the start, but as you progress through the comic you see the lighting becoming more expressive and detailed (thanks to computer rendering) and the bodies becoming more proportionate and closer to human body types. Now every frame looks like an authentic 1920s photograph.
* ArtisticAge: Don't be fooled by the big eyes and adorable faces, they just signify that Freckle and Ivy are the young''est'' of the cast -- they're both eighteen. It's not even that big of a gap to the ones who look more adult; Freckle's cousin Rocky is twenty-two.
* AuthorAvatar: Appears in a few "Chit-Chat Time" mini-comics interviewing some of the characters. Has been mistaken for [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=87 some kind of monkey]], [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=222 some kind of leprechaun]], [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=327 a disheveled pixie]], and [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=350 an undercover gremlin]].
* AwesomeArt
* BadassLongcoat:
** Mordecai frequently sports one.
** Also Freckle's [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=12 trenchcoat]].
** Panel seven of [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=118 this page]]. The shotguns certainly don't hurt.
* BigDamnHeroes: Subverted with Viktor, who tries to help against the pig farmers, has the means to do so, gets to the bar in time, but is unable to help because of stairs and because his bad knees can't really bend anymore.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: ''Nobody'' in this story is blameless. The protagonists can be nice, they can be funny, and they are certainly usually better than the villains of the story, but let's get a few things straight: just about everyone in the story (including every protagonist) is a criminal of some description, and over half of them have killed. Even Freckle.
** ''[[AxeCrazy Especially]]'' Freckle.
** Even [[CoolOldLady Mrs. Bapka]] (Viktor's upstairs neighbor) [[WordOfGod is a hardened criminal]], who [[spoiler: [[FelonyMisdemeanor stuffed sardines down her kitchen drain before the widespread adaptation of garbage disposals]]]].
** Though we've yet to see Lacy mixed up in any wrongdoings, time will only tell if this remains the case.
* BlackComedy: A lot of it, especially in the side strips, which take this UpToEleven.
* BlahBlahBlah: [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=10 Noise noise noise]].
* BriefcaseFullOfMoney: Mordecai uses one to block most of a shotgun blast.
* BuriedAlive: Viktor and Mordecai once used it for [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=117 interrogation]]. They killed the guy later, through [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill gun and grenade]].
* CastOfSnowflakes: The cats are all very distinct despite being, well, cats. It's highlighted even more on the current [[http://www.lackadaisy.foxprints.com/characters.php character page]], where each character is portrayed in a distinct, period-appropriate art style.
* CasualDangerDialogue:
** Very pronounced when the Lackadaisy staff are [[spoiler:under attack from very angry pig farmers]].
** [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=86 "...so I was hoping after you punch me through a wall you could..."]]
** "It's possible I've made the situation somewhat worse." Said while running for their lives through a cornfield from a hearse barreling down a hill at full speed.
* ChildrenAreInnocent? [[EvilLaugh HAHAHAHAAA]]! [[HaHaHaNo No]]. ''[[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=27 No no no no no.]]''
** As if Rocky's ComedicSociopathy wasn't bad enough, according to [[AllThereInTheManual Tracy]] and [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=119 Bobby]], Mordecai started keeping books for grifters, loansharks, and other varied criminals in his ''pre-teens''.
* CigaretteOfAnxiety: Zib really, [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=49 really]] needs [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=56 a freakin' smoke]].
* CoffinContraband: One of their former suppliers was an undertaker who smuggled booze in coffins. Possibly a reference to something that happened in real life.
* DangerTakesABackseat: Mordecai always has to do things the creepy way.
** In an interesting near-subversion, Freckle actually noticed Mordecai before Mitzi got in. It's just that nobody pays attention to the soft-spoken little guy.
* DeadpanSnarker: A few characters (see character sheet) and Tracy Butler herself is one; her artist comments and answers to reader questions are filled with snarks to rival Zib's.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The club-shaped pin, in a case of TheRedStapler.
* [[DeliberatelyMonochrome Deliberately Sepiatoned]]: Part of the comic's charm.
** That said, the side comics where she does use full color are stunning and memorable.
* DesignStudentsOrgasm: [[SceneryPorn Where]] [[CostumePorn to]] [[AwesomeArt even]] [[CastOfSnowflakes start]]...
* DirtyCop: The two who picked up Zib took the money that he had just gotten from Mitzi, and joked about using it to gamble at the next horse race in front of him.
** They get called on this by Dom Drago, though. [[spoiler: Not that his showing up portends good things in the future for Zib and the rest of our merry band...]]
* DramaticNecklaceRemoval: Sort of. Zib grabs Mitzi's pearl necklace, but when she pulls away, the necklace breaks and the pearls scatter everywhere. He didn't do this on purpose, however.
* DysfunctionJunction: The Lackadaisy itself is one. Its propertiess is a DeterminedWidow who constantly comes under fire because of the rumours that she killed her husband, and is worried about the constant threats to the Lackadaisy itself, while none of its employees are much better.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Wick and Mordecai both appear during the flashback in the second page of the comic. They join the cast formally join the cast in pages 13 and 27, respectively.
** Asa Sweet has a ''very'' early cameo as well. He isn't formally introduced until about 3/4s of the way through the first volume, but if you look closely you can see him in the crowd attending Atlas May's funeral in the first few pages.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Tracy's middle name is Jennifer. She's not proud of it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:F-J]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: A flashback shows Viktor shoving an injured man into a fireplace and then using his body to light the puddles of moonshine he's using to burn the place down.
* AFatherToHisMen: Atlas is turning out to be dark subversion of this trope. According to Zib, Atlas had a habit of collecting strays and offering them work and relative safety as his employees. [[spoiler: (He helped to get Viktor a lawyer and shorter prison sentence after his arrest and basically paid off Mordecai's angry pursuers from New York and gave him the shirt off his back, literally)]]. However, as much he 'saved' his employees, Atlas did still indenture them into a life of violent crime.
* FedToPigs: One of the uses of the pig farm...
* FourFingeredHands: Justified, since they're all cats.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Tracy herself. As evidenced by her 08/23/2010 journal entry on her deviantArt page, Tracy has recently 'unofficially adopted' her neighbor's cat Luca after she found the poor creature barely alive with several serious facial injuries and a myriad of infections. She took Luca to the vet to have him humanely euthanized, but then found it in her heart (and wallet) to pay for his many many surgeries, antibiotic treatments, and pain medication. The result: Luca is now living happily with Tracy as a sort of bizarre IRL counterpart to Viktor, as Luca lost an eye to infection and is generally chewed up body wise.
* FunnyAnimal: Everyone, but quite a few feline expressions are used (particularly with Ivy).
* FurriesAreEasierToDraw: A reason for why the cast are felines, [[WordOfGod according to Tracy]].
** Not that she [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=312 can't]] [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=218 draw]] [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=184 humans]]. [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=328 The cast as humans]] translate incredibly well.
** And [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=307 normal animals]]. It's not so much "easier" as "zanier for cartoon TheRoaringTwenties antics".
** WordOfGod is that she also thought cartoony cat faces were more expressive. She may have a point as when she draws the cast as humans, she shows an inclination to do so with stunning realism.
*** Proof the cat faces are more expressive? Check out [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=333 "Lackadaisy Expressions"]] -- Tracy's attempt to deliver advice on drawing a multitude of facial expressions, filled with examples utilizing a number of the strip's characters. The range of expressions and emotions is absolutely astounding.
** Not to mention the option of fluffing up a cat's tail if s/he's frightened by something, or moving the ears to show interest or displeasure.
* FurryConfusion: Talking cats and real pigs.
** [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=347 "Pets? Who said there were pets?]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial No one knows anything about any pets."]]
* GilliganCut:
-->'''Zib:''' Indeed. These arms weren't designed for manual labor. I'm afraid I'm relegated to the arts.\\
'''Rocky:''' [[RunningGag But you're less like spaghetti.]] Besides, shouldn't we revel in this opportunity to ''suffer'' for our ''art?''\\
'''Mitzi:''' Zib, go suffer for your art.\\
Cut to Rocky leading the band through the tunnels.\\
'''Zib:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Your enthusiasm for suffering is somewhat unsettling.]]
* GorgeousPeriodDress: Being TheRoaringTwenties, we get everything from flapper dresses, three-piece pinstripe suits and some fashion holdovers from TheGayNineties. Then there's Rocky's zoot suit...
* GrievousBottleyHarm: You can't have a story about bootleggers without this one. Viktor [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=120 shows us how it's done.]]
* HollywoodKiss: Averted. Mitzi and Wick try to have one, but Mitzi gets distracted by a picture of Atlas, and they both trip on floor olives.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Viktor and Ivy, respectively.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: The female cats have human-like head hair, and the males have only hints of hair. Justified; [[FridgeBrilliance short hair for men was the standard back then]].
** As Nico's head fur is longer than that of the other male cats, we can assume males would have equally human-like hair if they'd just grow it out. The boys have hair of varying lengths in [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=328 this]] side comic, for example.
** It's not just the hair; Mitzi's facial features are notably less feline in appearance than any of the other characters'.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every page is titled "Lackadaisy [[[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Something Multisyllabic]]]". "Sketchdumps" on the author's Deviant Art page are commonly labeled "Lackadaisy [[[AntiquatedLinguistics Crazy Old-Timey Slang Word]]]".
* ImprovisedArmour: Viktor uses car doors as a shield; nothing too ostentatious, that happens in real life as well. Mordecai also uses his accountant-esque suitcase as a shield at one point.
* ImprovisedWeapon:
** Viktor, [[BadAss naturally]], is the undisputed champion of this trope in the comic. He's knocked out someone with a car door, whacked people with heavy whisky bottles, and laid the smackdown on a rival gang with only a crowbar, for starters.
** Mordecai comes in a close second -- he's thought quickly enough to kill someone with a fragmented wood bannister.
* IncendiaryExponent: One early sequence showcasing Rocky's "logic" -- see CrazyAwesome, on the [[YMMV/{{Lackadaisy}} YMMV page]] -- lets you know exactly what kind of comic this is going to be.
* IndyPloy:
--> "''Always'' be prepared to improvise, Freckle. That's rule number one for jazz players and vigilantes alike."
* JugglingLoadedGuns[=/=]RecklessGunUsage: [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=19 In a background extra strip]], Rocky shoots himself in the ear when waving around his pistol, giving him the hole in the ear seen in the regular strip.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:K-O]]
* KneeCapping: Mordecai did this to Viktor in the recent past.
--> '''Mordecai:''' That is how one reasons with Viktor.
* KosherNostra: The best hitman in St. Louis is a dapper little Jew. (Going by the name Heller, presumably German Jewish, though it would be a stronger presumption if he was native to the Midwest, rather than New York.)
* KubrickStare: Considering that this is a cast of sociopaths, [[SociopathicHero heroic]], [[HeroicComedicSociopath comedic]], or those who are emphatically ''normal'', just about everyone gets a panel like this. [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=83 Even Ivy]].
* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Let's not sugarcoat it. The Lackadaisy gang may be funny and lovable, but they're still murdering, thieving bootleggers. However, compared to the Marigold Gang, whose ranks include [[TheSociopath Mordecai Heller]] (who, let's face it, is the worst of the bunch), they come off as much more sympathetic and easier to root for.
* LostInTheMaize: Subverted. [[spoiler:Rocky [[GenreSavvy attempts to use it as a means of escape]] when he and Ivy were found by the owners of some stashed liquor,]] but the corn was too low-grown to be of any use.
--> '''Rocky:''' "No! Why isn't this corn tall enough? This is terrible corn!"
* MatureAnimalStory
* MayDecemberRomance: Although Mitzi's age is unknown, and the art makes everyone look younger than they are, it's pretty clear that Atlas May was significantly older than his wife, Mitzi.
* MoeCouplet: [[HugeGuyTinyGirl Viktor and Ivy]], [[MoralityPet whose relationship is not romantic]] but definitely cute. [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=337 Discussed and practically lampshaded here]], especially in the last panel.
* MomentKiller: [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=102 Drunken Vergil]] ruins a sweet, sad moment between Zib and Mitzi.
* MrFanservice: Nicodeme has ''barely done anything in canon'' and the fangirls are all over him. His previous character profile claimed he enjoys "a sort of effortless popularity with the lady-types."
* NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters
* NoodleIncident: Used in a couple of [[http://tracyjb.deviantart.com/art/Lackadaisy-Chit-chat-59123905 gag]] [[http://tracyjb.deviantart.com/art/Lackadaisy-Euphemisms-139975448 comics]].
** Though the one about Viktor's eye has been answered, if you look [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=76 on the lower right here]].
* NotHelpingYourCase: [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=80 Mitzi here,]] dear God.
* OffhandBackhand: Not exactly a backhand, but Viktor still pulls off something with the same sentiment. [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=88 When incapacitated]]. Poor Rocky just can't catch a break.
* OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs: Mordecai, Ivy, and Viktor were made aware they have shippers. Ivy took it [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=337 gracefully,]] Mordecai [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=338 not so much,]] and Viktor's reactions ranged from stoic silence (when paired with Ivy) to uproarious laughter (when paired with Mordecai).
** When it was mentioned to Rocky that he might have fangirls, he was [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=336 thrilled.]]
* OldFashionedRowboatDate: Mitzi and Wick had one... sort of. And by 1920s standards, it was quite old-fashioned.
* OneHeadTaller: Nicodeme and Serafine.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:P-T]]
* PassThePopcorn: What one young cat does after Mitzi and Wick [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=82 spill out of a photo booth]] due to an impromptu make-out session. It's currently the trope image.
* PluckyComicRelief: Rocky and Freckle's wacky hijinks.
* RhymesOnADime: Viktor and Ivy get into this, during an argument.
--> '''Viktor''': Chad vas... bad.\\
'''Ivy''': And Claude? Was that your work too?\\
'''Viktor''': Claude vas...\\
'''Ivy''': Let me guess -- flawed?\\
'''Viktor''': Yah.
** [[SubvertedTrope Then subvert it:]]
---> '''Ivy''': And Cecil?
--->'''Viktor''': Cecil vas, uhh...
--->'''Ivy''': Oh, don't bother answering that. Nothing rhymes with Cecil anyway.
--->'''Viktor''': Terrible name. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And also he vas no good]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Ivy and Freckle as children. They might both qualify as adults too.
* TheRoaringTwenties: Of course.
* RuleOfCool:
** The artist has a penchant for drawing Wick dramatically brandishing a revolver. She admits that [[NonActionGuy he would have no idea how to use one]], but it makes him look debonair.
** The same happens to Rocky, who, in an attempt to look "pretty dashing" [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=19 in one of the early comic previews]], promptly manages to shoot part of his ear off.
** [[WordOfGod Tracey]] admits that although Zib plays both the saxophone and the clarinet in the band, he is never pictured with a clarinet due to his own ''vanity'' at playing the [[IncrediblyLamePun "sexyphone"]].
** Cast members sometimes wear zoot suits, despite those being slightly anachronistic.
* RuleOfThree: In "[[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=94 Lackadaisy Correspondence]]:"
-->'''Freckle''': "It's a three. It's my lucky number... I guess."\\
'''Nina''' (first horizontal panel): "Oh, is it then? Well, it's a good number."\\
'''Nina''' (second horizontal panel): "A ''holy'' number."\\
'''Freckle''' (third horizontal panel): *cringe*
* ScrapbookStory: Freckle has kept every letter his cousin has ever sent him-even the very few we're shown on [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=94 this page]] paint a very descriptive picture of what Rocky's been up to since he left home (and explains a few things about his shenanigans as an employee of the Lackadaisy speakeasy).
* SceneryPorn: Not just because settings are well rendered, but it's clear she put a great deal of research into it too.
* SelfDeprecation: [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/howtodraw.php "For more lies and misinformation, read on to part 2."]]
** [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/makingacomic.php Gawd, I'm such a hack.]]
* ShipTease: The artist made a few pages addressed to fans discussing the characters reactions to shippers. Specifically [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=337 Ivy and Viktor]] and [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=338 Viktor and Mordecai]].
* ShirtlessScene: Oddly enough, any time any of the male characters take off their shirt to reveal their sleeveless undershirts, they gain +5 sex appeal, whether they be in ''cat'' or human form.
* ShownTheirWork: Just try to find a historical inaccuracy besides people being anthropomorphic animals (zoot suits being the [[RuleOfCool sole, and acknowledged by the author, exception]]).
** It is virtually impossible to find a historical inaccuracy, unless the author draws attention to it specifically and explains the reason behind it. It turns out to be very, very minor.
** Seriously, look at literally ''anything'' in the comic and try to see something that didn't look like lots of thought and knowledge was put into it.
* SoundDefect: WordOfGod has it that [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=331 the sound of Viktor's fist hitting a face]]... is [[UnsoundEffect kind of bizarre]]. At least it is pre-{{canon}}. Or [[RuleOfFunny maybe just that once]].
* SplashOfColor: A few of the side comics, such as "Shenanigans" and "Tannenbaum," have color added in a few panels. "Haymaker" and "Powder-keg" have blood drawn in red, contrasting the sepia in the rest of the panels.
* SpoofAesop: [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=94 "Truth is pain. 8C"]]
* StabTheSalad:
** "[[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=77 WICK, IFOUNDYOURTIREIRON!!!]]"
** "[[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=332 ...Now's a bad time.]]"
** "[[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=13 Some thug brought this message for you.]]"
* StealthHiBye: Mordecai discovers the downside of doing this [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=72 here]].
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: (Possibly non-canon but) in [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=398 this reply to a Tumblr query]], [[ComicallySerious Mordecai]] and [[PluckyComicRelief Rocky]].
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Not in the comic, but by the fans. During the page [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=124 Coercion]]:
--> '''Ivy''' (about Rocky): "Will he ever talk sense again?!"
** In the forums immediately after:
---> '''At least a dozen forum-goers''' (independent of each other): "He talked sense in the first place?"
* TakeThat
** [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=333 The expressions tutorial]] would dissuade aspiring artists from relying on DullSurprise, [[{{Animesque}} anime]] [[CheekyMouth cues]], and "DreamWorksFace" (referred to as "The Smarm Brow") as regular crutches.
** In that same section she mentions having eyebrow privileges taken away. Possibly a TakeThat at Tom Preston, who is know for odd usage of eyebrows in his comics, usually along with smarmy faces.
*** One section of that expressions tutorial looks like it's specifically referencing [[{{CtrlAltDel}} a certain famous webcomic]] notorious for its bland, generic expressions.
*** Another section of that expressions tutorial seems to be specifically referencing [[Webcomic/DominicDeegan another famous webcomic]] notorious for its use of CheekyMouth and snout shaped noses.
** [[http://tracyjb.deviantart.com/#/d422uo7 Her most recent tutorial]] also shows a strong disdain to a [[{{RobLiefeld}} certain artist.]]
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: The female characters are drawn with humanoid, styled hair, but most of the males' fur is consistently the same length, like real cats. Possibly justified; see HumanoidFemaleAnimal above.
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing Your Gun Always Works]]: [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=56 Zib demonstrates]]. Though it ''was'' established beforehand that he's quite inexperienced with firearms.
** Given that the pistol in question was a .25 caliber Beretta (and his total lack of gun-kata), Zib could probably do more damage by throwing it rather than firing it. Freckle, on the other hand...
* TitleConfusion: More than a few people have referred to the comic as "Lackadaisy Cats." The comic's title is pretty clearly just "Lackadaisy," but "Cats" appears in the web address - hence the confusion.
* ToiletHumor: When a fan asked Tracy what kind of eraser she used, they got [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=334 this]].
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Rocky, Freckle, and Mitzi seemed to be the first characters thought of and designed. The initial proto-sketches and artwork were mostly images of the three of them getting into wacky criminal hijinks together. Though Tracey now admits it would be dreadfully out of character for Mitzi these days.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:U-Z]]
* UglyGuyHotWife: Highly subjective of course, but Elsa and Bobby are an example.
* UnkemptBeauty: Lacy. Observe: [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=76 regular, tidy Lacy]] versus [[http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/comic.php?comicid=98 mussed hair Lacy]] (especially panels 8 & 14).
* TheUnreveal: Rocky and Zib's conversation in [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=30 Hallelujah: ]]
-->'''Zib:''' But before you hightail it out of here, humor me - just what made a lad like you volunteer to go running hooch around in the dead of night?
-->'''Rocky:''' ''Well,'' I -- oops. Did you see that? One of my strings is broken.
-->'''Zib:''' Alright. [[DeadpanSnarker I'm glad we]] [[SarcasmMode settled that.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: The former dynamic duo of Viktor and Mordecai; while not exactly 'best buds', both had a tentative respect for each other's existence. Considering the kind of people [[SociopathicHero Viktor]] and [[FourEyesZeroSoul Mordecai]] are, a vague kinda-you-sorta respect is probably the closest thing to 'friendship' either one is capable of.
** The two actually spent time together out of work, if [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=327 this mini-comic]] can be trusted.
--->'''Mordecai''': "''Wha'' was I saying? Oh, Viktor. Right. Viktor. Viktor's ''greeaat''."
* WebcomicTime: The comic started some six years ago. Since then, ''two days'' have passed in-story. This is due in large part to the excessive amount of work that goes into the comic, plus some ScheduleSlip now and then.
