"Get Fuzzy"

Bucky, the arrogant cat: Aaaaaaaa!

Rob, the geeky owner: 11:55. Right on time for his nightly freakout.

Satchet, the lovable dog: Ever notice how he runs circles in the same direction?

Buckey: Yaaaaaaaa!

Rob: Maybe the coriolis effect works on cats, too, eh?

Satchet: Ha, ha! I have NO idea what that means!
