Introduction

The Mask is a dark comedy comic book that was described by its creators, John Arcudi and Doug Mahnke, as being "a combination of Tex Avery and the Terminator." Many folks who are familiar with The Mask franchise may think of the 1994 film adaptation which starred Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz in their prime - a film which was very lighthearted, fun, and somewhat uplifting. The original comic strip that the film is based on, however, could only be described as being lighthearted or uplifting on Opposite Day; it's a gory, terrifying piece of fiction that evokes laughs via a particularly dark hue of gallows humor. Both pieces of work are enjoyable in their own right, just know that The Mask comic strip definitely is not for kids.

The Mask Inspired Dog Name Considerations

In line with Arcudi's and Mahnke's description of The Mask, you may take a liking to the series if you're a big fan of the Tex Avery, Chuck Jones cartoons from the 1930s a la Droopy the Dog and Looney Tunes. Both The Mask comics and films are filled to the brim with references to old school cartoons; from the way the titular character (known as Big Head in the comics) walks, talks, and acts to franchise's outlandish sense of humor, you'll likely fall head over heels for The Mask series if you're a big ToonHead. This will lead you to calling your dog either Droopy, Looney, Grifter, Lobo or Big and appropriately so.

If you're a fan of dark comedy franchises like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Bojack Horseman, or Rick and Morty then you'll probably also find yourself a huge fan of The Mask comic series. Numerous characters encounter a mysterious mask that transforms them into the previously mentioned Big Head and allows them to act on their most basic impulses. The books spend a bit of time meditating on weighty subject matter, but they mostly focus on gritty, gory, goofy storytelling. 

The 1994 Jim Carrey led film, on the other hand, is a much more family-friendly romp (at least in comparison to comics) that's more in line with the likes of Space Jam or Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Big Head/Stanley Ipkis is also much more of a heroic character in the film, dispatching his foes in playfully devious yet ultimately nonlethal ways. Take on a movie role and consider a name from this film instead!
