That's right... Elton Priestly. There are no real people in the Sam and Fuzzy universe -- just plenty of thinly veiled analogues!
Well OK, I guess there is one real-world person who does exist in comic continuity. Boyleeeeee!
In all seriousness, I just prefer to handle these kinds of characters this way. It makes me feel less weird about developing their personalities away from their initial inspirations and fleshing them out into full-on unique creations. Even the Noosehead characters started as a simple parody, after all... but I'd like to think that they've transformed into something much more than that!
