''[[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/ 21st Century Fox]]'' (no relation to [[Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox the entertainment conglomerate]]) by Scott Kellogg is a science-fiction FurryComic that calls itself a "Romantic Comedy of the Future". Takes place in the year 2066, but every animal down to insects is sapient. Characters include Jack Black (no resemblance to [[Creator/JackBlack the actor]]), a red fox and traveling robotics engineer; Cecil Stewart, a giraffe and Jack's partner in his travels; Jenny Curtis, a rocket scientist vixen who starts dating Jack (after getting over her abusive ex), and Barb Kendall and Beth Regina, giraffe programmers who are both enamored with Cecil (and now both married to him, see below). Has many, many [[ShoutOut shout outs]]. Also several cameos from other comics, most often ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', ''Webcomic/TheSuburbanJungle'', or ''Webcomic/{{Newshounds}}''.

!!This comic provides examples of:
* AIIsACrapshoot: Robots using the Roykirk 2.0 operating system have... issues.
* AltText: It seems to have been dropped sometime around April 2008; before then, some comics had different alt text for each panel.
* AmoralAttorney: Willy Nixon, as well as a thief and hacker.
* AnimalsNotToScale: Generally averted, though Veronica the vampire bat was originally the same size as the foxes.
* ArtEvolution: Compare the [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/arch1.html ancient archaeology]] strips to the [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/ current one]].
* ArtificialLimbs: Tora Scobee's right eye, right arm, right shoulder, spinal column, pelvis, tail, and both legs.
* ArtificialMeat: [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20030613.html Scientifically Produced Animal Matter.]]
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: The entire cast--but Jack still gets offered a ShoePhone at one point.
* CampGay: A certain dog falls for Jenny while believing her to be Ace. He shows her a photo of himself "cosplaying" [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]] [[{{Squick}} naked]]. But he must not be all gay, because when he learns she's female, he replies, [[SomeLikeItHot "Nobody's perfect."]]
* CarnivoreConfusion: It's perfectly acceptable to kill and eat another sentient being, but predation was temporarily banned in one arc due to the invention of a genetically modified organism without a nervous system called SPAM (Scientifically Produced Animal Matter).
* ChurchOfHappyology: The Disney Fundamentalists, especially John Walker Bambi's sect.
* CompoundInterestTimeTravelGambit: The crew of station "Tsing Tsingatsong" are planning this through the use of [[HumanPopsicle cryogenics]].
** At least until [[spoiler: Jack hacked into their bank accounts and [[InvoluntaryCharityDonation donated it all]]]]
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Averted, apparently any personality changes are due to post-traumatic stress disorder, though there is some prejudice against cyborgs.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20000502.html Dr. Tangent]], being a ''male'' French Poodle.
-->'''Jack:''' (whispering) *PSST!* Cecil! All French Poodles have long eyelashes...!
* ExoticExtendedMarriage: Cecil, Barb and Beth.
* {{Fembot}} / RobotGirl: Starting [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20110523.html here]], we have examples of [[strike:gynoids]] go-go-bots on a ship headed for a Chinese-controlled location.
* GodGuise: When the land-dwelling species made FirstContact with the fish, they largely outgrew the worshiping but the Devonian (shark) GodEmperor is still said to "swim on land".
* HeroicBSOD: Jack's realization of '''''WHO''''' is [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20020527.html Jenny's previous boyfriend]] after she told Jack not to fight him ... [[spoiler:even as CrazyJealousGuy Tora Scobee verbally abuses her right in front of him]]!
** Complicated even more [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20020528.html when Jack is]] troubled to [[TimeForPlanB figure out what to diffuse the situation]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Jack does this when he realizes that his injured friend needs immediate help, the helpless victims need to get out of the hurricane, and rescue plane would be too heavy to if he gets on board. But Jack gets better [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20010402.html later on]].
* HumongousMecha: North Korea actually made [[StarWars AT-ATs]] capable of [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20100510.html riverdancing]]; eventually they were redesigned as [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20100705.html med-evac vehicles.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Way back in the ancient archaeology of strips Cecil (giraffe) and Veronica (bat) dated briefly, but broke up because the size difference made things a bit, difficult. And Jenny (vixen) was previously engaged to Tora (wolf).
* HurricaneOfPuns: The stars are not generally punsters. But a systems optimization test whips up a pretty decent, not to mention [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] pun cloud burst for [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20140804.html this strip]].
* InterspeciesRomance: There are some examples, such as Johann (mouse) and Veronica (vampire bat), but overall it's not as big a part of the story as many other furry comics.
** Also, there are no hybrids, though there is a genetic procedure [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20041029.html that allows interspecies couples to have kids]].
* JerkAss: Too many to point out.
** In the current arc, Jack and Jenny have to deal with [[SmallNameBigEgo Dr. Roykirk]], who [[DisproportionateRetribution fired]] [[KickTheDog a]] [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20070528.html tech]] all because said tech used a different OS in his qualifications!
* MobileSuitHuman: Veronica, a realistically sized bat, uses something like that to assist in a rescue operation on the Moon. More conventional [[PoweredArmor powered exoskeletons]] are also used in several emergencies.
* MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness: Fairly hard; it is just the mid-21st century, after all. There's no interstellar travel (though the Prometheus rocket Jenny's working on might allow slow travel), the farthest object colonized is the moon, and nanobots are really fragile and can only be used in a few specific environments...
* {{Nanomachines}}: Yes, but they're delicate, usually used for medical purposes.
* {{Polyamory}}: Apparently the norm with some species, most notably giraffes.
* ThePreciousPreciousCar: Jack's Thunderbird that later gets hit by a hurricane.
* RidiculousFutureInflation: In one early strip, it's remarked that $70 for one gallon of gas is the lowest they've seen in a while, and apparently a can of Coca=Cola costs $20.
** Though to be fair, that's not too ridiculous (very) roughly 6% inflation per year, on average, would give prices close to that.
* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Complete with LampshadeHanging [[http://www.hirezfox.com/21cf/d/20081124.html here]].
* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: Cavor Is About To Roundhouse-Kick You.
* ShoutOut: Far too many to count, mostly to various sci-fi.
* TheSingularity: [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20130506.html Roykirk]] claims that he's started it with his level 5 AI, meanwhile the background slideshow to his speech Bluescreens.
* SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence: [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20121210.html In-universe]] there is a scale, most AIs are level 2 (small child) or almost level 3 (person-level). Roykirk is trying to create a level five (borderline DeusEstMachina) but he and his team seem incapable of building even a level four.
* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: Usually towards the silly end.
* SweetPollyOliver: Jenny briefly disguises herself as "Ace" Curtis to retrieve Jack from a Chinese space station.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Tommy Khan (Pomeranian) and Fuschia (Husky).
* ThreeLawsCompliant: All robots, though the safeties can be bypassed using certain government mandated code phrases (such as "define the word 'is'", and "I am not a crook") that lock [=AIs=] out of their own systems.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Circa 2066.
* UnusualEuphemism: What the heck is "Johnny Freakingouter" supposed to mean anyway?
* UnusualUserInterface: The standard personal computer is a pair of heads-up-display glasses that seem to respond to brainwaves, though characters are often seen voicing commands. These glasses are frequently used for full VR, but some claim that a true virtual experience requires a neural jack.
* WaveMotionGun: Parodied with some firefighters and their [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20020211.html Wave Water Gun]].
* WebcomicTime: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in a recent [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20120709.html strip]] where a few months feel more like 14 years.
* WeCanRebuildHim: Tora as part of his backstory, with a parody of the TropeNamer in [[http://www.hirezfox.com/21cf/comics/tf20050401KathyL.jpg this guest strip]]
* ZeroGSpot: [[http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20041006.html Apparently]] one of the reasons why Cecil, Barb and Beth had their honeymoon in space.
