I totally second this notion.
i Third it… poor rick,.. drawing awesome pages, and then having us nag him about it
but yea !!! this one takes the cake … or a pumpkin or what ever !! it’s awesome
yes need wall paper
and dont forget the cake is a lie
hey, I just had some cake, THE CAKE IS NOT A LIE.
you can get it by taking teh alternate route end game
I wholeheartedly agree with this notion. It must be done.
Most definitly this needs to be wall paper! Please Rick?
Hold that thought!
*sprinkles sugar on top of the “pretty please”*
if you REALLY want a wallpaper
it might be a good idea to have some aspect ratios in mind, BUT
i just may try and hook you guys up with a vectorization of this…
need more practice doing that anyways
yeah. I like vectors. They’re convenient. Good luck, though!
A wallpaper of this *would* be amazing. c:
Amazing update is amazing!!!!!!
That is awesome!
And let me guess, Grape and Max are Simba and Nala?
I’m pretty sure they are going out as Prideland characters.
That’s what I thought at first too.
I was thinking that, too, but Simba and Nala seem to fit, too.
As my comment below this also hints, i too thought at first it was Simba and Nala too as well. but then i realized Max looks like one of the Prideland poster characters >.>
“I too at first … too as well.” TOO MANY MODIFIERS.
I thought Pridelands too
(but maybe theres a connection?
hmmmmm Lion King……..Pridelands)
*Sings quietly* Kimba kimba Kimba the white lion is his name.
credit to where credit is due disney.
a similar name, hurbavore friends and being and orphan…those are the only similaraties i see in kimba and simba.
kimba was lost, while simba knew how toget home the whole time
there were no humans in the lion king
TLK is based more off hamlet than kimba
The creators of Kimba and Simba should give credit to where the idea came from which is an African tale several centuries old. No one knows who originally created the story or exactly where it came from.
My name also comes from African legend but I ain’t tell’in what it refers to just so I can be annoying.
Or they could have dressed up as regular lions.
I swear for a moment there, i thought Grape and Max were Simba and Nala XD
and i really, really, REALLY must say i love Housepet holidays more than anything now. Kudos, Rick.
Peanut looks cute in wizard costume.
Say it with me.
Still waiting for that single she-wolf to show up.
XD i just knew Tarot would dress something like that XD
LOL they make a cute couple :3
I wonder if she’s off to Hogwarts…
id say shes graduated
She’s going to be the Quiddich (sp?) Coach.
Sp correction Quidditch
(major potter fan right here)
and for all purposes Quidditch World Cup
*begins chant* Krum Krum Krum
and to add, Peanut is wearing a wizard hat
(not story book correct but still fits great with the broom)
peanut probly wanted to be murlin( pretty sure i spelled that wrong), yen sid, or mickey
You, sir, win the day.
WHOO!! Grape and Max look SO cute in their Pridelands costumes, and Peanut almost looks like a ninja the way he is sitting on that broom. GO TAROT!
On a mostly unrelated note. I wonder if Fido has been having bad luck today? You know what they say about a black cat on halloween… If you don’t bring her sweets, she’ll be mad at you the rest of the year. >:3
Teenage Muttant Ninja Peanut?
In dog years
Dang yes. Those lion kigurumi hoodies look wonderful.
Wow that is how its done
All you little kiddies take notes cuz this is upper class stuff
First you get Grape jealous by getting Peanut to go with Tarot
Then have her swoop in out of nowhere on a flying broom stick
Grape gets mad and finally realizes her true feelings for Peanut
Fellings of betrayal and loneliness followed by a silent period
all mixed together and what do you get………
a love story fit for any book shelf
(i may just be over interpreting it but hey we can dream right?)
Rick you are a guru
…..so……beautiful…….*begins crying silently in the corner out of hope*
Go find you’re own corner.
So, the corner is private property.
I think I’ll stay in the open, rather than test the wolf in the closet…
Tarot is a win here. She creeped me out when she made her appearance, but now she reminds me of Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. (All credit goes where it belongs)
Thank you Thank you
*bows to imaginary standing ovation*
i take pride in my ablility to manipulate the situation to fit my purposes
it’s canon! Tarot can fly!
Only with a Broom!
I don’t see proof of that
Shhhh. >.> <.<
Did someone call?…
Oh whoops my mistake
Or perhaps just… no, wait, he’s terrified
Huzzah! Tarot is back!
watch out for the full moon
little werewolves are about
The full moon is going to be Nov. 2.
Also, I read one of your comments on the previous comic.
Where do you live that you make pumpkin shapes?
Im pretty sure i replyed to that but there were a lot i replyed to
i live on the west coast
Aww… Grape sounds jealous. That’s a sign, if ever there was one. :3
its just me or peanut looks like he’s about to cry? o_O
i hope not .. i think he is just looking down, and there is a slight light reflecting too …. or he could be scared of hights….
oh wow <3 grape and max look adorable in their little pridelands costumes together! and poor peanut looks scared out to all heck up there x3
Sorry, year and a half. It feels like just the other day you started this comic. :3
Sweet as hell one panel…I demand a wallpaper version!
as teh brawler so wisely stated
rick nice job with the costumes, and the spooky green color, and i like the soft shades too … they look especially nice on Grape.
Wallpaper!!! there’s a doggy witch and wizard in the air! run for your poppies!!! I mean puppies!!! Prideland customs for sale! Lolz!!!
Aw, those matching costumes are adorable.
*flips mushy switch back to OFF*
Great 1 panel Rick! =D
I wonder… Is Tarot’s ability to levitate objects limited to inanimate ones? You know, shes just making the broom fly in this one, and we haven’t seen her make a person (pets are people too) alone levitate…
awesome, i’d love this as a wallpaper, lol peanut is so scared
Me’thinks someone is jealous….
Nice use of shadows…it gives depth and relief to the drawing.
I made a attempt at creating a wallpaper version of this
it is currently 1650X1050
It is still a bit blurry because of up scaling , i did the best i can
I LOVE TAROT!
the shading on this looks really really nice
Hello I just want to say this. I, for one, likes to look in the internet for something to pass the time. You know, like webcomics or forums and things of such. Little did I knew that I was going to find this, awesome, intriguing, crazy ( in a good way, please do not be offended ), fully of life and feelings, and giggles ( LOL’s for those who like to speak the lingo ), masterpiece of a webcomic. No, please let me rephrase that, this is way too much profound and deep and beautiful to be called just a webcomic. Here I see a talent,a gift if you will, a great way to spend time in a matter of sane and safe fun. And for that, I must be grateful to you, the genius behind the curtains of a good creation like this one. I mean, who in his wisdom , would be able to conceive a idea so strange, so seemingly far fetched, that is so good ?
Your name would appear to be Rick Griffin, isn’t ? Well then Rick Griffin, the only thing I can say to you is THANKS.
I have been reading your comic just two days ago and not to brag or anything, but it took me 2 hours to read since the beginning to the latest strip , twice…just to show how much of a slow reader I can be when something so fascinating captures my attention.
And one of the best parts, after I had laughed my soul out with the strip, I can laugh the same with the comment.They are also Made of WIN ( not the horse ). So I am also in an immense debt to the people that took time to write those EPIC comments that unlike mine, were funnier and shorter than this one.
I will be an AVID reader of this comic until death do us apart, or it comes to an end.
THANK YOU FOR BRIGHTNING UP MY DAY !!!
You type a lot. but I agree. This comic is so epic it’s more than awesome
i agree with you, i just love housepets too! xD
Well , if you see this world’s mental and moral state we’re living in , I guess you could call it “sane”
A comic, SANE?
Eh, anythings possible.
*goes back to watching for single she-wolf*
why does it look like Tarot have physic powers.
My first comment to this is that you write in very sophisticated manner and that is the first thing that sets your comment apart from the rest
Second i can’t help but notice that you have a deeper understanding of this entire comic than even some of the readers that have been here since the beginning ( no offence to anyone)
And third you don’t use phrases and comments that so up in every post i the same way as they have been used
This leads me to some questions……
How did you come to find Housepets?
Why did it take you so long to find it?
An avid reader like your self has probably read a lot of great stories weither online or off.
It just seems strange that none of them have lead you here til now
Thats if you don’t mind me asking.
First of all, thank you for replying to my humble comment.
Second, the lucky day when I found Housepets ! I was actually looking for something to read,
but rather than to simply read books and encyclopedias like I usually do, I was looking for something to make my day a happier one. And sure it did ! also the ad I found in a site did help, to be honest.
To answer this one , I don’t usually think too much what I am typing it is just in the spur of the moment , like for example right now. I have just came from work and turn on the computer , looking for a new update ( By the way, I didn’t know that one new strip only comes every 2 days or so =’( ; but , oh well ) , saw your reply and here I am answering to it ^ ^.
Don’t worry , I don’t mind I get that a LOT . Being too nice and respectful to everyone despite having the size of a tiger ( If you get what I mean _ _U ) inspires distrust towards me. But here in the Internet, I have the advantage to be myself and not get lapidated for it ¬_¬ .
OK. now that being answered, ( and I hope it was well explained) , let’s get onto the next questions.
Why couldn’t I find Housepets ! earlier ?
Well I don’t have very much time free ( I usually work 9 to 12 hours a day ), in fact I am stealing time to sleep in order to type this. And yes, I have the hobby to read a lot in my free time , whether be it in the web or a good
old plain book. And like I said, I don’t mind that, in fact it makes me somewhat curious that somebody would take their time to reply to my longer-than-heck and boring commment = ). And to make it even stranger to you ( trick or treat ), I am only 18 years old ! There, wasn’t that shocking ?
And to boot , if you were tp check the others sites I’ve been, you would think I am only an infant !
Makes you want to trow rocks at me , doesn’t it = ) ( I really hope you wouldn’t ).
Hopefully that this boring comment answered your questions. Sorry for being so hasty, but I got to sleep…mhaa ….*yawns* until the next Housepets ! !!!
do you always write essays when posting to random comic message boards?
Well that is an exellent explaination thank you. I really didn’t expect you to respond so quickly.
To start with, you can usually tell if someone reads a lot, as long as they aren’t trying to hide it. Thats why i asked. As far as the respectful and nice goes, every little(or a lot) helps to cure the sorry mental and moral state(as you have stated) the world is in. It won’t spark distrust from me. As for the time it took you to get here. well that was a little too inquisitive on my part and i apoligize for it. It was just intriguing and i rally wanted to know, no matter how long or boring (which i disagree with) the comment is. And no i wasn’t shocked about you being 18 im only 16, so no stone throwing thats for certain.
“takes off helmet”
I now love tarot ^-^
Silly Peanut… I love how he sees absolutely nothing wrong with Tarot…
And I want more Tarot!! She’s amazing!!
Well, he knows Akkadian, I suspect he’d be rather open to the unusual…
As shown here…
Well it was my first comment here, I had to give my “speech” for all the lost time, don’t you think.?
Looks like Peanut needs an emrgency bathroom break
That put a very awkward image in my head… I’ll spare you the details.
I used to be a Tarot fan. Now even more XD
(snaps fingers) Ah… let me guess…
Simba and Nala… right?
This one’s already been discussed at the top of the page.
Well must have been a good reference for me to repeat it
Housepets got a small mention in the Halloween strip of Concession http://concessioncomic.com/ two people are dressed as Peanut and Jelly. The artist didn’t even bother remembering their names. He just says “Zoë is the purple one from Housepets.” and “Angie is the other one from Housepets.”
Strange considering several months ago I remember The concession Artist badmouthing Housepets and Better Days on the Futhia High Forum with the FH artist. I think they might have also taken a Shot at Calamities of Nature as well.
Hmm, now I am torn. part of me is glad that Housepets! is getting some free publicity, the rest of me is rounding up an angry mob to maim him for badmouthing Housepets! and not even bothering to learn Peanut and Grape’s names.
Nobody take my seat while I get my crossbow. Anybody want me to pick anything up while I’m gone?
Get me a Level 8 Pyromancer’s Book of spells. Thier’s Burning to be done!
On another note, TAROT & PEANUT! (on a Broom.)
Ummmmmm……well if you could pick me up a pack of twizzlers, a bag of Doritos, and the comedic writings of Jim Gaffigan, i think we can take this guys out with terrible jokes and poor impersonations
I could use some tuna. Keep forgetting to get some when I go out, and it’s been about a month. I can’t finish my casserole without any tuna! It’s starting to smell funny! Please hurry…
If there is such a thing as wolf-nip, ten pounds would be lovely.
Wolf-Nip, Cat-Nip, Weed, Meth, Crack, those all suck… Mercury is the way to go.
But that’s close too close to a precious metal. That could be fatal for me.
I only wear a bronze necklace to keep myself under control on nights like tomorrow.
Why is everyone so adorable!
Wow, you sure are a positive person…BUT SO AM I!!! FREE HUGS AND LAMBORGHINI’S FOR EVERYONE!!
lol…Housepets is the best…
Oh lord; it’s things like this that make me regret being a PeanutxGrape fan. Tarot is made of win!!!
WOOW -to the infinite power.
Looks like Peanut’s Hallows-Eve is EPIC this year.
On THAT note…
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!
Oh, Peanut is not afraid of riding a broomstick, that is probably one of the reasons why he wanted to go with Tarot! I think the real reason why he’s scared is more along the lines of this:
“Step on it, the superstitious mob is gaining on us!”
“What if they are just pretending?”
“THEY ARE USING REAL FIRE!”
XD Great strip Rick, really brightened up my day!
I don’t recall that comic…
Peanut, how is the view up there? The key is to balance like a cat without falling.
Any ideas what is Tarot going to show him? Wait, was the flying part it?
Bow chicka bow wow?
*breaks out the shotty and holy water* that time of year again =_=
CHRIST COMPELS YOU!!!!!
I love Tarot… even if she is competition for Grape.
Wonderful comic, as always. <3
Happy Hallow’s Eve!~
“GOOD NIGHT TOKYO!!”
I love the shading detail in this one, in particular.
I’ll just follow everyone else:
Rick, this reminds me….did Tarot find the remote?! I MUST see the full potential of the Great Spirits! I…must…know! D:
They are all adorable – Tarot seems to fit right in.
Passerby: “Nice costume!”
