So then what breed is the cat, Bucky Katt, featured in the comic
strip "Get Fuzzy"? I just assumed he was Siamese because of their
reputation for trouble, and apparently wild ideas.

A lot of people mistakenly consider any cat with points (darker feet, tail,
ears, and face) to be Siamese, but Siamese is a distinct breed from other
pointed varieties, such as Balinese, Birman, Burmese, Colorpoint Shorthair,
and Himilayan. A lot of people just call any pointed long-haired cat a
Himalayan and any pointed shorthair a Siamese.
