History

Fergee is a character from the 2000 AD strip Judge Dredd. Known for his distinctive battle cry "Easy the Ferg," he was a mentally subnormal but incredibly strong petty criminal — strong enough to take out a room full of Kleggs using nothing more than a baseball bat — who sought refuge from the Judges of Mega-City One by hiding out underground in the ruined 'Undercity'. There he became the ruler of the population of mutants and outcasts that lived on the banks of the polluted Ohio River: the "King of the Big Smelly."

He was discovered by Judge Dredd, on the run from the tyrannical Chief Judge Caligula, who earned his friendship by beating him in hand-to-hand combat and chucking him in the river. Fergee was happy to assist in the anti-Cal resistance alongside Judge Giant, Judge Griffin, Judge Pepper and others. In fact, his fighting and path-finding skills proved so useful that Dredd made him an honorary Judge. Relishing the chance to be a hero, a gravely injured Fergee ultimately sacrificed his own life to kill Judge Cal, hurling both himself and his foe from the top of the Statue of Judgement.

Dredd had giant memorial statues of Fergee erected throughout the city to commemorate his sacrifice, and there is an annual Fergee Memorial Day. On Boxing Day, 2138 AD, a gigantic balloon shaped like Fergee also featured in the Mayor Dave the Orangutan memorial parade.
