Savage Chickens - 500th Cartoon!

Today is my 500th Savage Chickens cartoon! So I thought I’d celebrate by drawing 500 chickens on a sticky note. (Actually it’s a megasticky note.)

Click the cartoon to see a larger version!

See if you can spot PROD3000, Timmy Tofu, a worm, a zombie chicken, Mr. Stinky, the Crabbit, Aquachicken, a Cro-Magnon chicken, a three-eyed chicken, and more!

    W00T! Congratulations, Doug, on a grand run of Savage Chickens so far. Please keep up the good work, I’ll still be reading when you get to 1000 post-its of ironic chicken comic goodness!


  8. TheGreatTimeWaster says:

    Congratulations!! And thanks for making us laugh for so long. Definitely looking forward to a whole lot more of them.

    On a side note, don’t think someone won’t count the chickens to make sure there really is 500! (I would, but I don’t want to!)

  9. Pat Marr says:

  17. Playtah says:

    Yay! 500! The “Coop” de grace!

  18. Shana says:

    Thanks for sharing your wonderfully skewed chicken-ness with us, Doug. I can live a long and happy life knowing that at least one other person in this world finds chickens as oddly endearing and wacky as I do… and apparently, there are many manny others as well. Keep up the good work!

  19. Janice in GA says:

    Thank you ever so much for putting all this work into your cartoons. They always cheer me up and frequently make me laugh out loud!

    Hooray 500!

  20. Just D says:

    CONGRATS on the 500.

    That is a lot of chickens! And thank you for doing these cartoons – they really help sometimes.

    Is this going to count as the Prod3000 cartoon for December?

  23. smudge says:

    that is totally awesome… and now printed out on my wall.

  24. Ellie T says:

    That is amazing.
    Congratulations on 500 STICKY NOTES! Post-It must really like you.

    That drawing makes me feel ridiculously happy. I can’t explain why….

    This is really my favorite web comic. If you consider printing a book (gasp dead tree) I am in. I don’t know if many people appreciate the web comic the way the techies do, so I would love to share this with some of my friends and family that would appreciate the wit of these chickens.

  28. the lock says:

    I like the Farside references. “I gotta be me!”

    Loved that comic growing up.

  29. Twyla says:

    Aww, yeah, you should’ve put in a Waldo chicken.


    You rock, we love you, keep doing it! Forever!

  30. Alayne says:

    You are the best! And congrats mon amie. – I even found the penguin in the chicken coup….

    Thank you for the laughs and your time.

    Cheers to you!

  31. DMB says:

    Awesome! Thanks for all the chickeny goodness. And Mr. Stinky.

    My childhood nickname is Chicken (why? Who knows?) so I’m particularly fond of these little guys.

    Here’s to 500 more!

  32. chikzrkul says:

    Congrats! I love Savage Chickens! Yours are so much neater and cleaner than mine…

    Of course, you know I had to make this my desktop wall paper, and I’m going to have to print it and hand it up just to annoy those who don’t get it!

  33. Adam says:

    Yea! Thanks for all the laughs! Keep it up!

  34. LazyPoint says:

    Is it true that you are meeting with Donald Trump to discuss “issues” in regards to the recent Miss Poulet contest?

    Congrats on 500

  35. tickybird says:

    Down with conformity, UP with chickens!

    I printed out the roomful of chickens and plan on making of them a jigsaw puzzle for the jigsaw junkies on the Fourth Floor of this old folks’ home. We’re right now working on a 3000-piece second-hand (so we can’t know for sure if all pieces are present)one.
    Thanks for a fun activity!! pjane

    Coming out of comment retirement to say:

    Well done, Doug.

    May your chickens prosper.

    Congrats bud! Well done. Why is there always a penguin among the chickens? Why? Do you and Nick Park know something the rest of us don’t?

  41. Noelle says:

    I couldn’t find waldo either, but I did find a penguin.

  42. Angela says:

    I think all of us regular readers should send you a nickel so you could buy yourself another pack of post-it notes.

    Thanks for the chuckle every workday morning.

    And for what it’s worth, your chickens remind me of the rabbits in the early days of Matt Groening’s “________ is Hell” line (life is hell, school is hell, etc.).

  43. highnez says:

    Wow! 500 cartoons already! Congratulations, Doug!

    I found the pirate and the crabbit, but it took me awhile to find the worm.

    Looking forward to at least 500 more.

  44. Melinika says:

    Waldo was right between the chicken on the left and the chicken in the middle of the row.

    WOOT!! Love it; here’s to another 5000 more!

  52. saraelaine1977 says:

    Wasn’t Waldo between that one chicken and the other one?


  53. Kennedy says:

    Congrats! “Down with Conformity!” I love it!

  54. Chickeny Lemmitt says:

    Let’s see…

    1 pack of sticky notes has 50 sheets..

    1 10-pack contains 500 sheets

    so, assuming no mistakes to date, you’re ready to tear the shrink-wrap off your second ten-pak of sticky notes…

    time to buy 3-M stock (the makers of sticky notes)

    I predict that 2007 will be the year you get picked up by a syndicate

  55. Stinkless in Seattle says:

    OK, I give up.. where’s Mr Stinky? In the cloud? Napping on the floor underneath all the chickens? Why no telltale stink lines to reveal his whereabouts? Did he find some more plastic explosives and erase himself completely?

  56. Lenny says:

    A chicken a day, keeps the shrink away !

  57. Levi Rocks says:

    Very much good!
    Congratulations sir.

    Thank you so much for all the hours of work that brightens so many of our days.

    Keep em coming!! (please)

  60. Jason Pultz says:

    Congrats dude! That’s a lot of chickens! So where is the ebay auction where we can bid on owning this giant masterpiece?

  61. Doug Savage says:

    Wow thanks everybody! you people are amazing. thanks for all the great comments and emails! I’m so glad to hear that so many of you look forward to the chickens every morning.

    ZAZ asked how long it took me to draw this one. well, i worked on it on and off all week – i guess it was about 5 hours altogether. I had to take breaks every 20 minutes or so to keep from going blind – and towards the end i was really worried i would accidentally spill my rum ‘n’ eggnog on it and have to start over.

    thayerpg asked about chickens with angry eyes – there are a few of them in there – look close to the bottom. And other readers are having trouble finding Mr. Stinky – here’s a hint: he’s in the right half of the cartoon.

    Hey Jason – so if such a thing were to happen, theoretically speaking, what would you bid? 🙂

    GreatTimeWaster, are you done counting them yet?? heheh

  62. Alayne says:

    Seriously People…

    I’ll start the bidding at $100.00

    …Found the worm!!!!!! Centre to right – NO my right!

  63. Heidi in KC says:

    Me, too, me too! I love the chickens! It’s 3:45am. I just found Mr Stinky!! He’s there!

    Thanks for all the Chickens. My very favorite is “Snape’s on a Plane.”

  64. StinkMeister says:

    OK, “Mr Stnky is in the right half of the cartoon” isn’t enough of a hint for me. Still can’t find him. Is he above or below the worm? Did he grow a beak? Is his tail shown? Paws shown? haha, yeah right, like Mr Stinky has any paws left… Maybe he’s wearing deodorant and is therefore less noticeable…?

  65. Doug Savage says:

    heheh okay here’s a better hint: Mr. Stinky is within a 5-chicken radius of the penguin!

  69. Andy says:

    Congratulations from Zurich. Love your chickens with a nicotine like addiction factor … keep on going, please!

  70. Snowdrops says:

    Congratulations Doug, and hope you’re having a great Christmas!! I look forward to finding all the various characters in this gigantic post-it when I’m a bit more sober… Btw, I second the e-bay auction suggestion! Actually, if you could put up more of your stickys to your shop merchandise that’d be great, I would so love to give them as pressies to fellow Chicken addicts!

  71. Sweetzi says:

    Congratulations on ur 500th chicken note. I love those chickens to death. Happy to know that someone else thinks that they r hilariously funny. Here’s to 500 more !!!!

  72. Luke says:

    I’m sure it would have been trademark infringement, but this sticky note lacks Waldo. 🙂

  73. tswny says:

    Yay for you! Here’s to many more ‘500s’. Your fans never want them to end. So keep eating those vegetables!

  74. That One Kid says:

    THE HUMAN OF DOUBT: How do I know it isn’t just 499 chickens?!?

    I’ve laughed, I’ve cried because I’ve laughed so hard, and sometimes I’ve had people come up to me and ask, “What’s wrong?” because I’ve had my head down on the computer keyboard, gasping for air. It moves me, Doug. The chickens are awesome.
