Savage Chickens is a webcomic created by Canadian cartoonist Doug Savage. It is a single panel comic drawn on yellow sticky notes, often featuring alternative humor. Savage Chickens has existed since 31 January 2005[1] and it contains at least a thousand comics to this date. The page[2] is generally updated daily Monday through Friday. Whereas situations in the comic are primarily carried out through cartoon chickens, other characters, such as Timmy the tasteless tofu, and a mock-up robot boss named PROD3000 are integral characters.[3]

Characters[edit]

The comic is dominated by chickens, but there is a large cast of recurring characters besides chickens. Timmy the tasteless tofu, who often engages in lewd thinking or activities, PROD3000, who portrays a satiric-hyperbolic view of a workplace manager, Worm, an alcoholic bug attorney, and a cast of mutants possessing seemingly useless powers are among them.[3] There are also multiple popular culture references, including Jason, Alien, Star Wars, Mr. T, U2's The Edge, Sigmund Freud, and Chuck Norris, along with other popular movies and actors.

Acclaim[edit]

Savage Chickens has garnered some critical acclaim. One site, The Webcomic Overlook[4] gave it five stars out of five. The Vancouver Sun posted an article detailing Doug Savage's victory in a music video competition for performer Laura Veirs.[5] He filmed a stop-animation style musci video[6] using his trademark chickens.
