who IS Uncle Reuben?
Peanut looks like he’s doing the Numa Numa dance in the last panel. And Grape’s adorable.
Dude, -I- have an Uncle Reuben!!! o_o
The faces <3
I cant help but wonder if Uncle Reuben lives in NYC?
This is going to be interesting…
Woo! #7 Not Bad! Yes, I think Grape looked inordinately cute in the first panel… Who am I kidding?!? They’re both cute! <3
I think it’s illegal for anything to be as cute as Grape is in that panel.
really close to impossible anyway
My GAWD, so cute, wanna hug then both!
Heh if it isn’t then it should be XD.
I’ve been lobbying for such restraints. The Win and Cute emissions coming out of this website have been riding the toxicity line all year.
We’re all in great danger. And yet… I can’t look away. SO CUTE!
Uncle Reuben is on grapes side? :3 “I thought you knew” could be interpreted that way.
That or Peanut just doesn’t know his family.
Or are we talking bout humans again? o.=.o Id so, we have mr and ms sandwich so… sandwich is the fella’s original last name, so perhaps Uncle Reuben is the bro of Dad? :3
From what I understand, if we are talking pets side of the family it would definetly have to be Peanuts side due to that Grape’s original name at the shelter was “Princess Periwinkle” before being adopted.
If its the human side, then I would have to agree with being the Dads side. That and I had no idea sandwich was his original name. I think I’m taking this too seriously XD.
I nobody I know calls their aunts or uncles by their last name. I think Reuben may be his first name. The last would seem to be anyone’s guess right now.
This is Super Cute!!!
Great postures and excellent faces, they put a smile on my own.
Oh. OH. Reuben Sandwich. Ahaha… oh jeez, I’m not sure if I wanna laugh or groan, Rick. XD
Peanut(butter)+ Grape(jelly)= Uncle Reuben(sandwhich)
lol XD perfect!
Their cuteness factor is so high that I can forgive the Reuben Sandwich!
I wanna squeeze ‘em both :love
Don’t you mean it’s- OVER NINE-THOU *head shot*
No. I denie this simplistic pun, it does not exist. as long as I follow this, his name is uncle Peter. Peter Griffin.
i like there dance moves XD really nicely done ^^
wow, they both look so great XD * starts to dance too*
Grape and Peanut are way too adorable! sweet!
Dance you fools! Dance!
we can has grape & peanut dancin’ fools animated icons / avatars?
What is it with you and the sandwiches, man? D:<
Sandwiches are nice?
Dancing ftw! >.<
Ha, I think Peanut and Grape are hilarious and adorable. That Dynamic Duo is just priceless.
wow grape acting fem in the first panel
Grape *is* a female – we’re told that in one of the earlier strips.
Perhaps he might acting more feminine than usual.
yes, but she’s a tomboy… tomcat… er….
yeah, she’s acting more fem then normal.
Well I never met Uncle Reuben either, who’s he? :O
w00t! The ultimate pair is back!
Haha, I have to say I think Peanut’s face is inordinately cute in the 2nd panel, and Grape is just cute overall
Both are excited for a roadtrip…..or it could another visit to the vet
Ummmmm. What’s a reuben sandwich?
Grilled sandwich made of Corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing.
Good God, sounds disgusting…
just like the ingredient list of any sandwich I make when I’m given free rein. It’s probably awesome. I must write this recipe down and make it
Now where do I go to find Sauerkraut? I don’t believe I’ve seen it in the local supermarket. Perhaps need to get the Polish translation (if’n its not Polish in the first place) and see if it’s one of the mysterious litre-size jars of pickles taking up the shelves in the foreign products (for the migrant workers section.
Saurkraut is pickled cabbage
Reuben sandwich is actually pretty good once you get use to the mixed flavors and all
Its usually in cans, somewhere near the canned vegetables. Its known as sauerkraut in english too, no translation needed.
I would be excited too, I love Rueben sandwiches
NOW you made me think of a very, very nasty concept of ‘visit’ P&G must be thinking of…
??? Oh! wait…. i get it.
Heh. I still act like that when I find out we’re going on a car trip. Great artwork.
… I just thought of something. They call their owners “Mom and Dad” so if their owners had kids would they consider them siblings?
I think they would still be owners, just smaller, less dominant ones. But then again, simplistic pack dynamics may not translate into the Housepets! world.
Maybe they -would- be like siblings.
Nice, very nice.
Oh! I just had a bad, yet funny idea about who Uncle Reuben is! What if he was the skinny PeTA guy for the arc before the last three comics?
and now to go trough the list of things in my head.
1. YAY!! Dancin time!!!!!
2. Alright! We’re gonna go see Uncle Ruben! We’re gonna go see Uncle Ruben!
3. He he. Ruben Sandwich. Nice.
4. the music in my head? It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time! It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!
but ….. hmm …. nope, can’t make it fit the words without sounding forced.
actually, I was just thinking about the fact that it is Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly dancing
It’s Peanut, Grape Sandwich time!
Peanut, Grape Sandwich time!
Peanut, Grape with baseball bats…!
Funny thing is, there are wierder names than “Reuben Sandwich.” F’rinstance, try “Esmerelda Weatherwax.”
And yes, I did find that in a phone book, BTW.
Someone must have been geeking out over early Pratchett and not cared about their newborn having a wierd name…
(mind you, most of Pterry’s characters have unusual but _believable_ names, possibly as a reaction to the craziness of Tolkien et al)
That or it’s a really crazy fan who changed their own name
Actually, I found it in a few places… It’s amazing what turns out to be someone’s name.
Also, “Weatherwax” is a real name. I know someone who’s never really heard of TP who’s last name is Weatherwax. And I am a big TP fan, so he knows about it now….
Life is odd.
This is the cutest comic I can remember.
sounds like someone must have mentioned the word “car” to the pets.
i love watching dogs do the wiggle when they find out.
They’re so adorabibble!!!
I just want to say I feel like you’ve finally nailed Grape’s look in this one. That may sound weird and it probably does… but ever since you switched to the new style, there was something about Grape that was lacking just a bit, almost like you were still adjusting her new facade as time went by. She never looked bad I assure you, only she just seemed different, atmospherically speaking. However, I can see how comfortable her style has become, and how it now gives me that familiar feeling of “Grapede” (Word I make up) when seeing her like it did in the old style; that can be rather difficult to achieve in some cases, especially when you change the artwork from something everyone was once used to, but you’ve pulled it off greatly. I think its important that readers feel familiar with the characters and I feel I do too once again with Grape. Its just my opinion, but hopefully many can see the immense improvement this comic continues to make with each panel.
I agree; this Grape seems to carry the character well. The careful balance of the ‘girl-that-looks-like-a-guy’ appearance is captured extremely well. Both her and Peanut’s proportions seem to have reached a charmingly comfy state (for example, the so-called ‘Popeye arms’ may not have complimented their physique as well as the those now seen). And lastly, it seems that after a shaky start, the Griffin has remastered his perfect expressions and fully reintegrated them into his style. I say bravo– and encore!
On a side note, I hope Rick doesn’t mind me referring to him as ‘The Griffin’ or ‘The Great Griffin’. They just fit, I’m afraid.
‘Uncle’ as in, they’re going to visit Uncle Reuben but their parent’s/owners are not.
Pet-Care center while they go on a real vacation.
ooh, nicely spotted… i think.
I’m strongly reminded of the Calvin and Hobbes rain dance :3
Just found your comic and read the archive ^-^ Love it! Can’t wait to see more *he he*
Welcome to the club! Good to have you.
You shall not be disappointed!
peanut dances just like my dad when the meter expired in his parking spot and he din’t get a ticket. weird…
It is simply magnificent phrase
In addition to my other comments I’d just like to say individually that the character art in this particular strip is 100% of awesome.
Still getting used to Grape actually having cat eyes, but she doesn’t look alien any more and it’s all generally ^_^
Good thing the legs are not fully visible in these panels, or these would probably be turned into unofficial T-shirts so fast it’d make your head spin, much like a particular Calvin & Hobbs strip no doubt was, rofl. XD
good ol Uncle Reuben!
also in agreement with the person above me
happy happy happy ^^
Indeed D’aww ^^ The cutest pets are on the stage
Ahaha! Who cares who he is!? Keep dancing! You’re making happy in my face!
Excellent strip! All panels tie for best, and could easily begin solo careers! Preferably as those ‘T-shirts’ I’ve heard so much about!
Exclamation marks mean I’m yelling! Yay!
