15 Funniest Far Side Comics Starring Its ‘Nerdy Kid’ Recurring Character (Including 2 of Gary Larson’s All Time Best)

Gary Larson’s The Far Side famously doesn’t have any official recurring characters. Larson wanted the freedom to tell single, self-contained gags where anything was possible (as well as the ability to mercilessly torture his characters without upsetting fans.) However, while Larson didn’t want to use the same characters over and over again, he had no such misgivings about using the same archetypes, and perhaps the most famous (next to his ubiquitous cows) is a character Larson refers to as “the Nerdy Little Kid.”
