by trade, and his everyday life in Gingerbread Village
with friends Pui Pui the hedgehog
is for all ages, aiming to be more like the nostalgic comic strips of old.
The comic publishes every Wednesday on its website
, and is free to syndicate and reuse for any reason.
Has a character sheet
- Affectionate Parody: Of folk tales with a big bad wolf (not to be confused with The Big Bad Wolf who appears in fairy tales as a Stock Character, of course).

- Art Evolution: The art has improved greatly from the first few strips.
- Battle Butler: Foxxo's butler, Joe.

- Copyright: "Wuffle" is a literal subversion of copyright law, as creator Piti Yindee released the work into the public domain via the "Creative Commons Zero" waiver.
- Digital Piracy Is Evil: Subverted - see Digital Piracy Is Okay below.
- Digital Piracy Is Okay: Creator Piti Yindee actively encourages (on his the comic site's "Free License" page) for people to copy, recreate, and even sell copies and derivative works of "Wuffle." This is made as legally official as possible thanks to Yindee's use of the "Creative Commons Zero" waiver, a fairly unprecedented move for most webcomics artists (and artists in general).
- Egg MacGuffin: This precious strip. Wuffle collects a fresh egg from the hens, and cooks it for his meal. Right as he's about to eat it, the egg's cooked yolk hatches into a live chick, right on the dinner plate.
- Another one has a large one that Wuffle thinks would make a good omelet, but when he tries to crack it on the side of a bowl the entire table breaks from the force.
- Explosive Breeder: When at a book singing, Matilda notices that she's second - and last - in line, with plenty of books left. The first in line is a mother rabbit who wants all of the books for her several children, who she holds in her overcoat.
- Face Palm: Foxxo does this when Wuffle outpranks him during April Fool's.
- Fiery Redhead: Debbita, who has red hair and brown fur.
- Furry Comic
- Genki Girl: Debbita, with Wuffle being a male example.

- Huge Guy, Tiny Guy: Chuck and Dr. Greyham.
- Imagine Spot: What Debbita thinks Joe's scar is for.
- Lean and Mean: The recurring fox. Subverted in that she's usually just doing her job, and only coincidentally antagonistic. That said, they does find delight in what goes on around her, though never perpetrates it.
- Leet Speak: Aunt Pinky.
- Mr Fix It: Wuffle, taken Up to Eleven. Most notable is he once broke something that was like an ipad, and fixed so it made a holographic projection.

- Out-Gambitted: Foxxo pranks Pui Pui and Wuffle by asking them to fix his car (when they get there, it's a box on wheels). Wuffle gets Foxxo back but good.
- Perpetual Smiler: Subverted in Wuffle's case, though played straight with Chuck.
- Petting Zoo People
- Public Domain Character: Wuffle himself, and the entire cast, are all public domain characters thanks to creator Piti Yindee's use of the "Creative Commons Zero" waiver on the "Wuffle" comic series. Unlike most public domain characters, who reside there thanks to an expired or invalid copyright, Yindee's copyright was actually given up willingly with the intention of making the Wuffle comics free for anyone to copy, sell, reuse, recreate, and distribute in general.

- Stuff Blowing Up: This strip.
- Sugar Bowl
- Sweet Dreams Fuel
