Sam and Fuzzy is a webcomic by Sam Logan. It mostly follows the lives of Sam and his little friend Fuzzy, unsurprisingly. But there are naturally other characters, so here is a big list of them.
  • Sam - Shares the role of main character with Fuzzy. Odd hair, tall, skinny, generally a nice guy. He worked as a taxi driver until an unfortunate incident involving the Ninja Mafia, and is now working at a bookstore to buy a new taxi so he can go back to his old job. He lives with Fuzzy.
  • Fuzzy - The other main character. Short, fuzzy, looks remarkably like a little teddy bear! He's a pretty bad person. He lives with Sam, and joined the Ninja Mafia to help Sam pay off the taxi.
  • Fridge - Sam's possessed fridge. More evil than Fuzzy, if such a thing is possible. However, the lack of any sort of way to move hinders him greatly. Fortunately, Fridge has overcome this obstacle by possessing a Ninja Mafia member. He hasn't been in the comic lately, but it is safe to assume he is off murdering lesser mortals.
  • Butcher - Sam's pet cat. Was thought to be a 'he' until she gave birth to several kittens and a dinosaur.
  • Lance - Sam's ex-coworker. He stands around, smokes, and drinks coffee. He doesn't show up much, which is probably why there's not much to say about him. It doesn't help that he works at the taxi company, which Sam no longer frequents.
  • Alexa - Sam's ex-girlfriend. She works at a bookstore, and was Sam's dream girl, for a while. He eventually worked up the nerve to ask her on a date, and things went perfectly. However, Fuzzy was generally horrible to her, so she told Sam to pick her or Fuzzy. Guess who he picked! She works at the bookstore and now gets along decently with Sam.
  • Andrea - Another one of Sam's current coworkers at the bookstore. Noosehead fan, gets along well with Fuzzy. Doesn't show up a whole lot.
  • Candice - Sam's current girlfriend. May or may not worship Satan. Was secretly admired by Rikk Estoban (read: sent thousands of ridiculously creepy gifts) until Fuzzy made him stop. Enjoys pool and shark wrestling.
  • Rikk Estoban - Infamous cartoonist and co-creator of Skull Panda. Is either completely insane or an artistic genius. Good friend of Fuzzy's, and is currently taking care of Chompy.
  • Carlyle - Heroic taxi driver of legend. He's pretty rare in the strip, and you're never shown his face. He is well known for his incredible taxi adventures and excellent advice.


The comic is hilarious, and very well drawn. It's really clever humor, and the story is definitely good enough to keep you hooked in. I highly recommend reading it; you will thank me later if you do.

Sam and Fuzzy is a webcomic that shares with Sluggy Freelance the unusual distinction of starting very badly and, somewhere along the line, getting really pretty good. As a sort of spiritual cousin of Sam and Max, the comic takes advantage of a stream of coincidences and logical impossibilities, not to mention a thick vein of point-blank surrealism, to substantiate long and generally well-written plot arcs. For the first phase or so of the comic, the lead character Sam is a taxi driver, later taking on a job at a bookstore. Sam seems to have his origins in the creator, Sam Logan, although the comic itself is not apparently autobiographical. Sam's best friend Fuzzy, the source of much of the initial supernatural weirdness of the comic, is perhaps best described as a "hyperkinetic-bearish-thing," essentially Steve Purcell's Max with detachable eyebrows. If, so far, the setup sounds rife with possibilities for cliché, well...it is. Fortunately, Sam Logan learns quickly, and the comic gets steadily better over the first 550 strips or so. The story gets a sort of reboot at comic 566 with the Noosehead story arc, focusing on the heavy metal band Noosehead, Sam's mysterious disappearance, and the foibles of the newly dissembled ninja mafia.

By the beginning of Noosehead, Sam Logan's black and white art has become incredibly beautiful. While the writing tends still tends towards cliché, it tends to skewer said clichés in fresh, unexpected and original ways, and most comics reward the reader with several punch lines and a large dose of visual humor. The new phase is intended as a jumping-off point for new readers, and should be treated as such.
