Tom and Jerry?
Jasper and Jinx!
But Jinx is a mou-……That makes three mouse pairs doesn’t it?
Pixy, Dixy & Jinx the Cat.
I love the mouse (Spo, perhaps?) giving the cat a hot-foot, or is that a hot-paw?
the mouse is jinx. (furthermore, Spo’s fur is grey)
i think its tom and jerry
at least the reference line of the soul on fire line.
the episode is Solid Serenade http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_Serenade the female cats even look similar
It is Tom nd Jerry. I used to watch it as a kid, back in the day. And I love still this day. The episode you have up is the one that line is from.
Tom’s name was Jasper and Jerry’s name was Jinx in their very first episode, Puss Gets the Boot, hence the Jasper and Jinx tags.
Also, “girlfriend cat” is probably Toodles Galore, albeit with a red bow instead of blue.
Ah the oldies. Got to love them, but yeah I knew about Jasper and Jinx.
aww, *lies beside Peanut and hugs tight*
TISH YOU! =D
…he means: “Gesundheit !”…^^
…oh, or it could of course be: “she”, sorry^^…
Будьте здоровы! !
…ach, nein ! it is spellled: ‘Auf Wiedersehen !’… Ja ! (or maybe: Yah !^^)…
Tish, you! haha so creative.
and you just noticed NOW?! It’s there sine Bino used to cry at the very same movie, incidentally
apparently, all dogs cry for that movie.
well according to Fido anyway.
come on its a great movie i always cry at the end but the second not that good
I have to agree with the lady here. (Hopefully you’re really a female and not some guy with something that he really likes flowers. That’d just be another awkward silence moment.) The end of All Dogs Go to Heaven even brings a tear to my eye, and I watched Bridge to Terebithia and just laughed at the end… Maybe it’s just because I’m a cruel and heartless person when it comes to dealing with humans, but I have a soft spot for animals, but still, I watch all kinds of those sob stories and I laugh at most of their endings. Some I don’t laugh at, but still… I was trying to say a point or something up there, then I got horribly off track… What were we talking about?
I do too
Tish, You! is actually from here: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sickday.html
Well, Homestar references make it even better!
*gives comforting cuddles to the poor pup*
aaaww peanut is so cute – is that ”all dogs go to heaven” or what its called, and Tom & Jerry
Yeah its all Dogs go to heaven… Main dogs name was Charlie in that movie. … I’m with the dogs though.. that movie still makes me cry.
I’m with you on that
the scene finale, when Charlie is allowed to go to the kid to give her the last goodbye.
Yes, allright, I used a lot of tish you too!
That scene still makes me tear up, even after all these years. Poor Peanut… I hope things work out for him.
who doesn’t, here?
That took me a full minute of staring to figure out that was Tom and Jerry. XD
and of course tom trys to get a girl
Hahaha, just like in Tom and Jerry “The Zoot Suit”
*notices the TV tag*
…TV? A character? :O
Poor Jasper, poor Peanut, and poor Grape. This is just not their night.
And I’m not sure which I like better, the “All Dogs Go to Heaven” reference or the “Tish Yous”
LOL, I love that episode of Tom & Jerry! XD
That love triangle thing seems a little convienent. I think she ether knows or slightly suspects….. Yes techincaly part of him IS on fire…….. I should try that.
Either that, or she’s just genre savvy.
Say, something IS burning around here!
Now you made me wonder whether or not he’ll make the scream of agony and try to dunk it in the nearest water source.
Ahh the return of Tish, You!
I don’t think Peanut will be able to disguise his emotional state for long…
This comic just made my shortlist of home page tabs
I daresay that, at this point, Grape still looks ‘masculine’ because she’s not mature enough. I mean, the barn cats were most definitely feminine even without the eyelashes, but the white cat lady in the first panel? Wammola!
…well, I dunno… just as some girls/women are very girlish and female, so others are more boyish/male in character and appearance (and vice versa with boys/men)… Grape just is the way she just IS – if you know what I mean… she doesn’t have to be ‘girlish’ to be a believable female cat – just as a tomcat doesn’t -have- to be a lech to be a believable male^^…
Once again, I must submit my theory of androgynous creature mass production to the panel for approval.
funny that a mouse could sneak in a restaurant cat without becoming the main course within the second…
I meant ‘cat reastaurant’
“res⋅tau⋅rant” actually.. But your thoughts seem somewhere else, huh?
you were saying? I was a li’l busy down in this ash pit….
They let in two dogs into a cat restaurant.
hey, after all Fido has the best reputation!
OMG i JUST saw the mouse. lmao
lol, I missed it to
Now I want to watch All Dogs Go to Heaven again.
I think that Peanut is watching that particular movie so that he can justify is sad state and the tears to Grape when she comes home…
A solid theory. Ah, l’amour.
Also, Valerio! What happened to your face! Your avatar is blank. It’s slightly harder to find you here.
hope it’s done.
And had it not three corners,
It would not be my love.
it is true, all dogs cry at “all dogs go to heaven”.
also grape, too late.
LOL its Tom and Jerry! XD
aww poor peanut T_T i really REALLY REEEEAAALLLY wanna give that guy a hug right now!! (cant wait for the next update D:)
Burning… Burning… #$%& my foot is on fire!
“Hey, somethin really is burnin around here.”
Oh, man! A Tom and Jerry reference AND an All Dogs Go to Heaven reference!? This is truly the greatest webcomic ever!
Mein gottt…. Tom and Jerry? I’ve been a long time reader, and I’ve always wanted to see a Tom and Jerry reference!
me sad for peanut
Heheh, BURN! Heheh, BURN!
Heh heh, Hot foot. nice.
Hmm, I just remembered something about Tom and Jerry. In the episodes that he lived with that lady who always beat him with a broom. She always called Tom “Jasper.” hmm, interesting link. I’m almost expecting him to start singing “Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t, My Baby?”
Oh and by the way. Too late for that, Grape, Much too late for that.
It was only in the very first one. Otherwise she did call him ‘Thomas’
t now i have that song stuck in my head
is it me, or does max have a REALLY large bell..?
I hope that bell doesn’t ring. way to go deaf, kitty!
Max got it from Santa, only he can hear it. He rode the Polar Express last Christmas.
All dogs go to heaven!!!!
My favorite movie. I love this comic FOREVER.
AWWW Peanut…. T.T
I hope that is caramel-covered popcorn.
And now we see how poor peanut is coping.
Don’t worry peanut, you can do it, you can cope!
2 references, 1 comic, -love it!
I hope Jasper and Jinx make more cameos in the future
I dunno. Our intrepid author has made an habit of introducing interesting minor characters only to relegate them into an oblivion….
I always feel bad for Peanut, but eh I’m sure things’ll pan out
Excellent work Rick. I’ve read the entire series thus far. =D
Okay, awesome. XD Tom and Jerry AND an All Dogs Go to Heaven reference in the same comic? Every new strip, I love Housepets even more.
>.> I didn’t even see the mouse until I read the alt-text.
CAUSE WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE
IT WAS ALWAYS BURNING
IT WAS ALWAYS BURNING
It’s funny; the more I like Max as a character, the better the triangle becomes. The important question is whether Rick will make Max more interesting and dynamic- if he does, then there will be a heavier emphasis on the main story and character interactions. If not, then the story will stay like it is – cute, humorous slices-of-life that don’t extend very far. Maybe I just want this comic to be more epic like Lackadaisy or Dreamkeepers, but alas – we can’t always get what we want.
New characters, right? Awesome! Anyways, are there really normal couples out there? Humans are just as insane and weird as pets. I’ve seen it.
I think they are trying to act TOO normal. Normal is boring. The triangle has already been set, Grape’s fault.
aa-bsolutely so! She should’ve listened to her heart, not to some barn cat’s advice!!
awww poor Peanut!
My love, it has three corners.
Because it’s a shard of glass I picked up from the ground.
I hope you can fast, my love.
Even Elder Gods make typo’s! “I hope you can RUN fast, my love.”
WHERE’S THE EDIT BUTTON I CAN’T FIND THE EDIT BUTTON.
In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits undo-ing.
AWWW!…Peanut with chocolates and tissues watching a romance film <:3
Not just tissues- Tish You!’s
I don’t think it’s too late for Grape, but we’ll see
Another Tom and Jerry reference….”Hey, what’s cookin’?” “You are…stupid.”
HAhahaaaa! Awww that’s so adorable I love peanut ^^
am I the only one who noticed what movie Peanut was watching? I adore that movie! ^-^ A very fitting for movie a sad dog. <3
That movie scared the crap out of me when I was little. Do you remember that nightmare Charlie had? After I saw that, I couldn’t sleep for a week.
I know, it messed with me for a while too. The little girl is one of the most adorable characters ever though. Don Bluth is amazing.
Hah! Oh holy crap, I can’t believe I didn’t notice the mouse lighting the matchstick in his toes at first! X3
I was /wondering/ what the alt_text’s quote was for, mehehehe.
BURNING! <3 I love that Tom and Jerry reference in the hover text-box.
That’s not the only T&J reference in the comic. Took looking at it again for me to notice. The three foreground characters are obvious homages to Tom and Jerry. The girlfriend cat is totally Tom’s main squeeze Toodles Galore, Jasper was Tom’s name used in the first T&J short, and that mouse is a suspicious shade of light brown ;3
Oh wow, I love Tom & Jerry, it’s practically my favorite cartoon. X3
Wait…why is it a “J” on the collar? Shouldn’t it be a “T” for Tom?
“Jasper” was Tom’s name in the first Tom & Jerry cartoon short ;p
…Hehehe! it’s the favorite brand of animal tissues. the tish-you. ^.^
I wanna hug poor peanut to bits!
well, not actually to bits.
