Webcomic / The Fuzzy Princess

Go To

The Fuzzy Princess is a webcomic created by Charles Brubaker (who also does Ask a Cat). The comic focuses on Kat, a cat princess from another world that accidentally gets stranded on Earth. She seeks refuge with Jackson, a human boy who found her. They are later joined by Kat's royal servants: Chiro, a bat who often acts as the Only Sane Man, and Kuma, a bear who likes to spout terrible haikus.

The comic runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It's also published into comic books.

Tropes Featured:

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Princess Kat is a purple cat. Her dad is also shown to be blue in one comic.
  • Beary Friendly: Kuma, a subservient of Kat who loves nothing more than to write (bad) poetry. He also likes to eat everything in the fridge.
  • Crossover: Kat has made appearances in the creator's other comic, Ask a Cat. Chiro and Kuma also appeared in one strip.
  • Cheated Angle: Queen Felicia's hair always covers the eye farthest from the camera, regardless of what angle she's facing.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Chiro gets a story to herself in "Chiro and the Condor".
  • A Dog Named "Dog": The bear's name is Kuma, which is Japanese for "bear".
    • Similarly, Chiro's name comes from "chiropteran", a group of mammals that bats belong to.
    • Subverted with Kat, which is actually short for "Katrina".
  • Either/Or Title: One of the chapters is titled The Unholy Alliance, or The Tail End of Krisa.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Princess Kat, of course.
  • Furry Female Mane: Chiro and Queen Felicia both have long, human-like hair. Averted with Princess Kat, however, who doesn't have any.
  • Funny Animal: Princess Kat, Chiro, and Kuma.
  • Inexplicably Tailless: Kuma the bear is drawn without a tail.
    • Averted with Kat herself, technically. She has a prosthetic tail (having lost her real one in an accident), which she frequently detaches and morphs into things.
  • Informed Species: Chiro is a bat, but looks more like a flying cat.
  • Never Bareheaded: Jackson is never seen without his hat, even when he's asleep.
  • Rebellious Princess: Downplayed, but Kat has shades of this.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Most of the female cast, including Kat, Chiro, and Jordan, had this happen at least once.
  • Tomboyish Name: Jackson's sister is named Jordan.
  • Turbine Blender: Narrowly avoided by Chiro in one page.
  • Your Head A-Splode: The only function Kat's favorite doll, Stressful Suzie, has.
