--> ''A webcomic about a polar bear and a penguin in Antarctica.''

''[[http://wallyandosborne.com Wally and Osborne]]'' (previously known as ''On the Rocks'') chronicles the many adventures of [[StraightMan Osborne]] (a penguin) and [[TheDitz Wally]] (a polar bear) in [[PolarBearsAndPenguins Antarctica]]. The format varies from gag-a-day to story arcs, but it's safe to say that the story never takes itself too seriously. Unfortunately, [[OrphanedSeries it hasn't been updated in a little over six years]], but there's still a decent archive to go through.
