Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })One of the klassic newspaper komics of the early 20th century, Krazy Kat was published in the New York Evening Journal from 1913 to 1944. It was written and drawn by George Herriman and exhibited surreal, American Southwest-themed artwork, often focusing on aesthetics over humor. This caused the strip to alienate much of its audience; it only remained in the newspaper as long as it did because it was a favorite of Journal publisher William Randolph Hearst.The story revolves around the title kharacter and his/her (gender is never set, and strips often switch between the two, sometimes in the middle of one komic) obsessive love with the downright evil Ignatz Mouse, who hates Krazy and loves nothing more than to throw bricks at his / her head. Krazy being, well, krazy, takes this as a sign of love. In the meanwhile, Krazy Kat is actually loved by, of all things, a dog — Offissa Bull Pupp, a police officer who is ever vigilant of Krazy and makes it his life purpose to prevent Ignatz from throwing bricks at all, hauling him off to jail when he's kaught in the act.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })While the komic never kaught on with a mainstream audience, it remains an influence to kartoonists to this day; Bill Watterson of Kalvin and Hobbes fame cites it as a major influence and featured Kalvin's parents admiring a Krazy Kat strip in a museum in one Sunday strip. Even before then, Ignatz himself went on to be a Mauve Shirt in the Mort Walker / Jeff Dumas vehikle, Sam's Strip in the 1960's.Kollections of Krazy Kat komics were notoriously difficult to find for many years, and the first few serious attempts at komplete kollections were scuttled by the publishers going under. Finally, in the 2000's and 2010's, Fantagraphics managed to release a komplete series of Sunday strip collections, Krazy & Ignatz.There have been several animated adaptations of Krazy Kat made; none of them kame very klose to the source material, however — aside from maybe this one. Krazy Kat also achieved the unusual distinction of being adapted into a jazz ballet by John Alden Karpenter (er, Carpenter).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Generation Xerox: This whole "brick-tossing" thing apparently started in ancient Egypt, when the "noble Roman rodent" Marcantonni Mouse and the "siren of the Nile", Kleopatra Kat, were in love. Marcantonni Mouse didn't know how to express his feelings, so he got someone to chisel a love poem on a brick and threw it at her while she was daydreaming. The rest, as they say, is history.

Bilingual Bonus: Spanish teksts are everwhere and Spanish dialogue. In one strip involving Officer Pup and Krazy alternately popping up behind a wall, the poster on the wall is konstantly changing, but it's always something in Spanish. It should be noted that in one frame where Ignatz sees Krazy, the poster reads "Ratón Muerto" es  "Dead Mouse" with an image of a ratón muerto on it.

Gender Bender: Krazy Kat. Needless to say, a raging inversion of Tertiary Sexual Kharacteristics as well. Reportedly, Herriman regarded Pupp, Kat, and Mouse as being "pixies" who had neither sex nor gender, feeling that such issues were rather outside the sensibilities of the strip.

Boring, but Praktikal: One strip had Krazy telling Door Mouse how impraktikal it is karrying a door all the time. However, he / she fails to notice the praktikal uses the door has while babbling at length about how it doesn't have any, including its use as a makeshift bridge, or to fling back a brick thrown by Ignatz.

G-Rated Drug: Tiger Tea. It makes a worm believe it is an anakonda. Even more shockingly, it gives Krazy self-konfidence. Suddenly he/she is no longer passively taking bricks to the head, and instead takes the initiative, grabbing Ignatz by the tail and dragging him away. Herriman so enjoyed Tiger Tea's personality-altering kharakteristiks that he extended the storyline to last nearly a year, making it the longest story in the strip's history.

Funetik Aksent: Krazy's extremely thick Brooklyn/New Orleans akcent. Krazy's Akcent iz meant to be the "yat" akcent of New Orleans, an akcent that Krazy's kreator would have kome into kontact with and probably spoke. It sounds a lot like a Brooklyn akcent, thanx largely to a very similar blend of ethnicities having settled in the area.

He didn't swear not to throw stones, did he?

Love at First Punch: Ignatz' repeated abuse of Krazy only deepens Krazy's love. By later in the strip (c. 1940), Ignatz seems to be in on the gag; aware that Krazy enjoys the bricks, perfectly fine with that, and willingly making dates with her just so a brick kan be tossed. Really makes you wonder...

Antagonist in Mourning: In one Sunday strip, Krazy falls down a waterfall, and Ignatz cheers in delight. Krazy spends the rest of the strip on an underwater adventure with his "kousin" Krazy Katfish. Toward the end, we see Ignatz mourning what he believes to be the untimely loss of his enemy, sobbing into a handkerchief and lamenting the "cruel" way he treated Krazy. (This doesn't stop him from snapping out of it and smashing Krazy with a brick as soon as the Kat announces his presence.)

Animal Jingoism: Averted like "Krazy" with the main Love Triangle — a dog who loves a kat who loves a mouse. Played straight with Ignatz's hatred of Krazy, although he's the aggressor (and a Friendly Enemy). Lampshaded in a strip where Krazy suffers from a regression to normal kat behavior and tries to eat Ignatz. And to top it all off, the "katfish" and "dogfish" are portrayed as natural enemies.

comment
All Animals Are Dogs: In one strip, Krazy wonders whether an "engles worm" is shaking his head or wagging his tail; the worm chases the Kat off-panel, growling. Then there's the dogfish, who akts like a dog, komplete with Animal Jingoism toward Krazy's kousin Krazy Katfish.

The Vamp: The duck in the robin's tale of why he flies south for the winter. Krazy also thinks of Pauline Pullet as such.

No More for Me: Ignatz goes home and smashes his bottle of whiskey after apparently being konfronted by three of Krazy Kat swimming in a lake (in fakt Krazy and his kousins Krazy Katbird and Krazy Katfish).

 Krazy Kat (Comic Strip) / int_f005700f
comment
Konspikuous Konsumption: Parodied in "Keeping Up with Krazy". Kolin Kelly, to whom Ignatz has sold a new house and two kars, thinks Krazy is trying to kompete with him when she sits outside under an umbrella with a pair of roller skates. When she picks herself a flower, Kolin gets himself a garden, and so on.

Delivery Stork
 Krazy Kat (Comic Strip) / int_f1a36f8e
comment
Delivery Stork: Joe Stork delivers all the babies; Krazy has been known to follow him when he's making his deliveries in order to be first to kongragulate the parents. This partially akounts for the strip's lack of klear gender; at one point Krazy loudly "breaks up" with Ignatz as the stork walks by, explaining afterwards that he / she doesn't want Joe to take their relationship the wrong way. (Interestingly, the kreator experimented with drawing Krazy as female and pregnant before he decided that the Kat should be a "sprite," neither a he or a she.)

comment
Law of Inverse Fertility: Several strips concern the wealthy Mr. VanWagg-Taylor, who desperately wants an heir but whose intended children keep getting delivered to the Widow Pelona, already the mother of many, due to stork mishap. There's some fun radar-dodging in the way Mrs. VanWagg-Taylor reakts to seeing said widow with a child that klearly resembles her own husband.

Gold Digger: In one komik, Ignatz finds out that Krazy's aunt and uncle are planning to leave Krazy all their money. Suddenly he's very interested in Krazy, serenading the kat and bringing kandy and poetry. Krazy senses that something is off and is relieved when Ignatz, finding out that the money isn't going to Krazy after all, goes back to his usual brick-throwing.
