A children's graphic novel series by Andy Runton, Owly revolves around the adventures of an owl named, well, Owly, whose goal in life is to make friends in the world with the help of his two companions, a clever worm named Wormy and a hungry chipmunk named Scampy.
Owly provides examples of:
- A Dog Named "Dog": Gee, it's hard to tell what kind of animals Owly and Wormy are. Averted with Scampy the chipmunk.
- Character Title: Owly is named after the main character, Owly.
- Fantastic Racism: Other creatures Owly meets generally assume the worst of him because he's an owl, and they usually eat smaller animals, rather than trying to befriend them. Just a Little Blue, in particular, entirely revolves around the interactions between Owly and a bluejay that initially assumes that every action Owly takes, no matter how benevolent or selfless, has a sinister ulterior motive.
- Mime and Music-Only Cartoon: Basically the comic book version of this trope. The series generally has minimal amounts of dialogue, if any.
- One-Word Title: Owly is only one word.
- Theme Naming: All of the main characters have names ending with "-y" (Owly, Wormy, and Scampy).
