    • CassidyAndBotch

      This brings a whole new meaning to home theatre.
      @Echo: How did you read that whole comic in the 3 seconds between my reloads.

      • EchoFireant

        Fast reader? :3

        • Psidra

          wha, if it was 3 seconds, why did you reply 1 MINITE later

          • Frank

            Maybe EchoFireant commented at 12:00:58 and CassidyBotch commented at 12:01:01
            That’s three seconds!

          • FuRrY321

            Who’s CassidyBotch?

            I read CassidyAndBotch! :D

            Hooray for nitpicking!

          • HonorèDerazey

            I see a little of what happened in the early 90’s (Even though I wasn’t born then): In the early 90’s the 80’s was trying to die off. In this discussion, the subject of TIME from the last comic is apparently carrying on into this discussion. Did anyone of you notice?

          • littlebeast

            um, he replied to the comment AFTER seeing that it was posted? (in those three seconds between the reloads)
            really, guys, think about it a little.

          • Argent Stonecutter


  2. Kamron

    Pouch! That one stung.

  3. Dissension

    There are never enough kangaroo puns.

  4. IceKitsune

    I face palmed.

    • HunkRlz

      *Face palmed too*

      • FuRrY321

        *Face paw*

        Ha! I beat all of you!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          *Double face paw*
          Noeph pha pheat phwu phall!

          *GASP* MAN! It’s hard to breath wif both paws over yer face, minya! @.@

          • Manix

            Face punch!!
            ha i beat all o- ………. oh wait..

          • FuRrY321


          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Naf nof nife… >:3 *Rubs over cheek where his broken tooth is*

    • Duskyo

      Word… :D

  5. Sleet

    Unfortunate implications: consider Scooby-Doo’s speech impediment, then consider the man who designed his character.

    Anyway, MORE kangaroo puns? What next, hobbit puns?

    I found the “I’m only four years old” line pretty cute.

    • ReCreate


      • Manix

        is “This.” your fave word 0r somthin?

    • Dissension

      More kangaroo puns are never a bad thing.

    • Frank

      We got ourselves an Irregular Webcomic! reader! You know, the other comic with an exclamation point in its name

    • CassidyAndBotch

      “What next, hobbit puns?”
      That would be a feet. But I’ll make short work of it.

      • Wingedwolfgirl

        the rim shot has returned! ;0

      • Justice193

        how many times do I gotta say it; stop rimshoting yourselves :P

        you’re taking the fun out of it for me :(

  6. HonorèDerazey

    I always though Scooby had a speech problem. You know, this is a perfect example of situational irony… I think…

  7. EHH

    Love this. Speaking of Scooby Doo, that new show looks good.

    • rWolf1991

      They have a new show?

      • Indagare

        There’s been “What’s New Scooby-Doo?”, “Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!”, and (most recently) “Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated”

    • Wingedwolfgirl

      U mean, “what’s new Scooby Doo” ?

  8. Pokeblue

    Nice, it actually took me a while to get the part with “Roo”. Lol.

  9. Icharus

    If I had a bucket of popcorn big enough to reach my whole arm into like that, I’d be SO happy! And the relative size of that soda…<3
    Also yes kangaroo jokes

  10. Manic

    Mods are pro-f**st. Either that or no one likes me.

    • Dissension

      They’re actually anti-f**st.

      Wouldn’t you rather get constructive comments and feedback than a bunch of “F**ST” posts if you were in that position?

  11. E-104 Epsilon

    Typo in third frame? A Saturday morning cartoon character a?

    • Kamron

      Not at all.

      If you look at that section, it appears to be grammatically incorrect, but the full sentence is “They dared to PUT (the verb) IN A SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON (qualifier) A CHARACTER (the noun that was put)….”

      • Kamron

        At least, I think I pulled that sentence apart correctly. I know I’m a writing major and all that, but I still don’t have a clue when it comes to super-basic grammatical terms. That’s the problem with seat-of-the-pants people.

    • Dissension

      “They dared to put in a Saturday morning cartoon a character with both…”

      It’s the same as saying “They dared to put a character with both… in a Saturday morning cartoon.”

      • Justice193

        missing comma, but that depends on what part of the world you’re in and what grammatical code you’re following, now stop buggin’ him about it :P

        • Dissension

          Please note the time these replies were posted. It’s not like we’ve been continuously talking about it; when I hit “reply,” the other post hadn’t been made; I was surprised to see it but nothing could be done, eh?

          • Justice193

            the only reason I replied to you was because it was at the bottom of the comment stack… sry :P .

          • Dissension

            No apology needed, just trying to explain.

  12. HunkRlz

    Classic 1960’s Scooby-Doo cartoon is always the best! Malt shops, the Chevrolet Sport van Mystery Machine! “Scooby dooby doo” “You Meddling Kids”, those awesome looking costumes. I watched that show on Cartoon network as a kid in the mid 90’s and I still do. ^^ Good times.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Hear hear, minya! ;p
      Ah miss the “ye ol’ toon-time” cartoons…
      Like teh ol’ Bugz Bun-bun cartoons or teh ol’ Spider-guy toons, minya! X3

  13. Snowmon

    “Gimme a break, I’m like four years old.”

    My baby cousin was like five years old when she first saw “Lord of the Rings.”
    …given the movie just came out.
    Age is still no excuse.

    (-_-); …and she thought the orcs were cute…

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      For the HORD!!! ÒwÓ

      • FuRrY321

        Hooray for spelling mistakes!
        I know not what is wrong with me today!

        BTW, did you make that avvie yourself?

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Yup yup, Ah have bin doodling again, nya! ;p And Ah thought: Why not make mah own avatar, nya.
          So Ah did!

          • FuRrY321

            Did’ja make a full image, then crop it using Gravatar, or did you actually draw a 50×50 image?

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Ah made a full doodle, then cropped it, nya! “^w^
            Else ya can’t C teh line any moar, mao. {:3

  14. falcon01

    :P !

  15. Tahoe

    …………. Ooooh that fox is gonna get it.
    I’ll make sure my roo-mmate sees this one

    • Rick Griffin

      Hey, hey, hey! I came up with this one on my own

      • Kamron

        Exactly. Don’t be so brootal when chasing after your perceived root of the problem.

        It’s all Rick’s fault.

      • Tahoe

        The response that Roo gave when he saw this comment cannot be posted here do to rating violation. *laughs* … Earlier today Fox told him that he should try and become a State TRooper.

        Also, That’s awesome! I swear, I want to see you two have a pun-off.

        • Frank

          What did Roo say? Was he worshiping excrement?

      • Dissension

        Only one thing could have made this better: Joey.

        • FuRrY321


        • Justice193

          rofl… maybe a tad bit overdoing it? :P

          • Dissension

            Are you hopping mad? There’s no such thing as overdone!

  16. Valerio

    Anyway, best review of that show, EVAH!

  17. Valerio

    2nd Panel = cute FTW

    • Hopper200456

      HAHA!I thought that was my account cuz’ of the av…
      I was like WHAT!!! I didn’t say that?!?!!

  18. ShiLin

    Now I begin to realise the personality differences of all six ferrets~~that’s really a nice touch here! So Duke is the most simple mind one, Keene is the “we’re not all about instinct~~oh dad I’m sorry~~”, Lana is the most playful (even among ferrets!) one (“just kidding!”), Pit is a bit of geeky~, Simon showes up in TV and Rock would most likely be doing silly stuffa. Basically that’s right?

    • ShiLin

      Or anyone has better choice of words? En is not my first language so…please be understanding~~

      • FuRrY321

        I do know that we use the ellipses ( … ) to cut out certain things in quotes, rather than the “~”.

        There’s your grammar lesson for the day! :D

  19. Wolfspawn

    I just want to pet him :P

  20. Argent Stonecutter

    Dook dook. Dook DOOK dook dook dook. Dook dook DOOK dook! LOL!

    • Dissension


    • Frank

      And don’t forget “HBRLRU”!

      Wait, Socks can say “LOL”?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        OMG! Dook dook dook dook! Dook DOOK! LOL!

        • FuRrY321

          I didn’t know ferrets could say lol or OMG! :D

          Oh, and Dook, le dook dook.

          • Argent Stonecutter


          • Frank

            @Furry321: “Le dook dook”? Don’t you mean “Le Boq Boq”?
            If so, don’t mix that with Commander Kitty

            @Argent: if you hadn’t started with a “doo” sound you would’ve broken the effect!

          • FuRrY321

            Actually no, Frank, I’ve never read “Two Lumps” before. (Le gasp!)
            Thanks for introducing me to yet another comic. I trust the archives are in good shape?

  21. Demi Bank

    *Face double-palm*

  22. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    Ah lold so hard at the 4th panel, mah cheeks still hurt, nyaha!
    BTW Ah love Ooby-Oo, he’s a bit like meh, nya! ;p A big scardy-cat, nya! X3

    • Frank

      So wait, you agree with this? You realize it means you negate everything you say?

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Seeing teh humour in thingz, does not mean Ah agree, it just means I see teh irony of it ;p
        If ya take to many thingz to srsly, then there is no humour in teh world, nya! ÓwÒ

      • Kamron

        Could you elaborate, Frank? I’m a little confused as to how this negates everything Aerix says.

        Is it because he always types in his bizarre slang-thing, yet still finds Scooby’s way of speaking funny?

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Ah dun find his way of speaking funny, siwwy Kammy!
          Ah just like teh show ;p
          An by teh by, Ah speak in a Lolcat-ish dialect, nya! ~^w^~

          • FuRrY321

            Noze! Iz Engrish!

            Get it right!!!

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Enrish is fur Japanese people siwwy, but they prefer to write kanji ;p

          • Justice193

            really? I always imagined it’s be the way Japanese/Chinese cats may end up sounding when they talk…

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            lol No, it’s actualy the way Japanese people speak English.
            The have such a heavy accent that they tal in the same way they write. Like if a would say:
            Hello. Ah am Aerix Spades, nya! (English)
            If Ah whir Japanese Ah would say:
            Herro. Ai am Eriksu Spadu, nya! (Engrish)
            And now in Romaji Japanese:
            Domo! Watashi wa Spadu Eriksu desu, nya! (Romaji Japanese)
            (If any one spots a incorrection, purrr-lease tel meh, Ahm a bit rusty on Japanese, nya! “^w^ )

        • Frank

          He ends everything with “nya”, which can be read as “nah”, slang for “not really”. Nya is also used in “nya, nya, nya, nya, nya! You can’t catch me!” which could mean, as used here, “Whatever I said, I didn’t mean it seriously, I meant the opposite!”

          And yes, I know about the japanese thing, but the whole joke about today’s comic is that we’re supposing perfect English, isn’t it? :P

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            lol Ah nao ah getz it, nya! ~^w^~ It’s a pun-pun, minya! X3

          • Kamron

            Not really, no. We’re making fun of Duke’s naive inability to get a joke that most five-year-olds understand. Perfect English has little to do with it.


          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            And not only that, nya! If Ah would negate mah own sentences, Ah wouldn’t have placed the “nya” richt after a “,” Then Ah would probably say sumfin like this:
            Ah like Ooby-Oo… Nah! ÒwÓ
            And it wouldn’t negate mah sentences but would make it passive aggressive, as in SARCASM, nya! And that’s mah second language Ah can speak fluently, mrrrrf! ~^w^~

          • Argent Stonecutter

            He’s not five years old yet, is he?

          • Kamron

            Not in human years, no.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Whir ya talking aboot moi? ÒwÓ Ahm 25 in hooman years, nya!
            And am 2 years and a quarter in cat years, nya! ;3

          • Justice193

            I think they’re talking about duke now…

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Nya! “^w^ Ah thought it was aboot meh? ÓwÒ

    • HonorèDerazey

      I like the way you type. It makes reading your comments fun. =3

    • Hopper200456

      You mean Ruby Roo.

  23. Valerio

    No wonder Mr. Milton adored them :D

    • Hopper200456

      No kid.

      • Frank

        Will you two always post together while you have that avatar?

        • Hopper200456

          Yup! XP
          No,It just happens..

          • Hopper200456

            And Hey,Mine is different!
            Look at the top of his,Then the top of mine.
            See anything?Look for White Triangles..

          • Lucien

            No diffrence in looking at it…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Hopper’s zoomed in more and crops the tail of the word balloon.

  24. MelSkunk

    I think when I get back face-palm ferret is my new icon

    • Hopper200456

      …Get back?

  25. Ki

    I love the “I’m like, four years old!” line. Too cute!

    Lol. My brother showed me Jaws when I was four years old. As you can imagine, I was quite terrified of sharks until I was around ten. But I still blame my irrational hatred for seafood on that movie.

    The sad thing: he told me we were going to watch the Lion King.
    The even sadder thing: I didn’t realize that it wasn’t the Lion King until half-way through the movie.

  26. FlareKitsune

    Quick! Someone avatar the facepawing ferret before it’s too late!

    • Frank

      er… too late for what?

      • Hopper200456

        Too late for being late!

        • FuRrY321

          It’s too late! MelSkunk has already reserved it for their avvie!

          Oh, and it’s never too late to be too late! That’s just called “fashionably late,” haha!

          • Frank

            It’s not too late, your watch is just two days slow! He said he would do it for his next avie (which I’m guessing means Sunday: two days)

  27. Hoheh

    He does have a point, if a bit silly.

  28. Lanagor

    Oh goodness……

  29. Naylorfan90


    I never realized how great roo jokes were until Housepets! Meow!

  30. Frank

    Yay! The ferrets are back! And with buttered popcorn too! He’s even using one of those funny looping straws!

    BTW, points if you can guess what my avatar represents without looking at my photobucket

    • MrMutt

      I’ll make a hazarded guess. Redwall or Mouse Guard?

      • Frank

        Er, you do know I have a new one today? Did you empty your cache? Or is that your guess for today’s image?

    • FuRrY321

      Your Second Life character’s hugging their mother for Mother’s Day?

      • Frank

        I don’t play Second Life, but I’ll give it to you anyway.

        Congratulations! You have just won a $1000 webcam as part of the 11:59—12:01 experiment!
        As soon as the funds are approved, expect to be contacted for the delivery of your fabulous prize!
        (some conditions apply: you must participate in the experiment to keep the camera; and you may not tell the other 9 participants, who will have to return their cameras, that you’re keeping yours)

        Happy early Mother’s Day, everyone!

        • Justice193

          the answer to this little dilemma is that everyone was told to keep the camera, if they tell someone that they got to keep it, they have to return it, odds are that 1/10 people won’t tell, this experiment is simply to see if that is true.

    • Frank

      See, I asked because I showed it to my sister and she said “your rat has a girlfriend who is afraid of the dark and who, for some reason, is taller than him”

  31. Akhera

    Pure Genius.

  32. KeeganWolf

    I facepawlmed in tandem. The second panel is adorable :3

  33. Wolf Nanaki

    Wait, doesn’t he actually have species identity issues? Anyone else remember him saying “Dog? Where?”

    • Indagare

      I do, I watched the new movies. :-) I can’t say I’ve watched any of the cartoons recently, though…

  34. Hopper200456

    Its true,He should stop say “Ruby Roo.”

  35. Ace

    Bu dum TSHH!

    • Frank
      • FuRrY321

        There has got to be a better way of doing that. Like, embedding the button in the comment or something. Because for a 1-second long audio file, it takes too long to load the page.
        At least on my computer, anyway :)

        • Frank

          If this were a forum, it would be a matter of activating the embedding of flash code in posts. But it’s not; its a comments section. Despide allowing some HTML code, not all is allowed (the <sup>perscript tag, for instance, doesn’t work) including, I’m guessing, flash objects.

          The alternative, I think, is to link directly to the file (sound or flash), but by default the browser should ask you whether you want to open or save it.

          • FuRrY321


            I am wondering constantly how much the bandwidth costs for the creator of that site. Because there are tons of people visiting that site EVERY DAY.

            Another HTML thing I’m missing is the tag, for underlining, but I guess it’s not really important unless you’re in a forum.
            That’s why I use CAPS for everything that would normally be UNDERLINED :D

          • Frank

            Underlining is something you do when the message is handwritten. The equivalent in typed text is putting it in italics. Caps, rather than denoting emphasis, denotes yelling. Of course, since didn’t have italics until this year, we kind of got used to the caps thing.

          • FuRrY321

            But now we have italics and italicizing things is more fun when you bold-icize it, like so.

  36. SamiwolfKo

    lol ruby roo its obvious the ferret hasnt seen scooby doo

    • Hopper200456

      Very,Very,VERY VERY!

  37. BillyMT

    Now that he mentions it, Ruby Roo does sound like a name from someone with those problems… I’d expect to see a guy/girl called like that in a red light district XDD

  38. ShiLin

    Wait, is that cinema also a part of their house?

    • Wingedwolfgirl

      They are multi-millionaires; I going to take a flying guess and say

  39. SPennLUE

    I like this one, but I think the setup was a bit long. Maybe it could have been shrunk down to three panels? (good thing web comics have that luxury)

  40. Authur

    I really hope to see more of those guys. They’re so awesome!

  41. iHavezMyBirdo

    Made my day. xD

  42. Andrew tiscareno


    • FuRrY321

      It’s like an animalistic awesome face!

      Except it’s winking!!

      ;) !!!

  43. NobodyYouKnow

    I don’t know (though i doubt) if anyones noticed, but i’ve been commenting less and less lately. And because of
    1. my mom’s become addicted to the internet
    2. I liked it better when there where maybe 100 max comments an issue. each comment meant … more. it was… i don’t know… simpler. i just liked it smaller. (don’t get me wrong, i’m happy for this comics and rick’s success)
    i “resign” from commenting. every now and then i’ll pop in and catch up on the story line, but this is my last comment. just wanted to say bye. its been fun!

    • Naylorfan90

      Um, okay. This doesn’t really seem like something to announce, but uh, bye I guess. *blinks*

    • Kamron

      If the comic continued to become more and more popular, yet retained its comment limit, all we’d get is 100 people saying “OMG so funny!”

    • Frank

      Awww. I was hoping you (and the other people who have stopped commenting) would just return when a vacation rolled around. I’ve been mising you.

      But yeah, most people don’t announce. They just disappear.

  44. Wingedwolfgirl

    He also seems to have an identification issue with his peers.
    He keeps calling “Shaggy,” “Raggy”
    …not really good for his friend’s self-esteem :S

    • Frank

      Does he ever refer to any of the other characters by name?

    • Justice193

      … I have finally seen what the writers buried into scobys speach… I will never speak scooby speak again.

  45. petitcake

    XDD I laughed…so much.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Meh 2, nya! ;p
      Hope yer cheeks didn’t hurt as as much as mahn, minya! =3

      • FuRrY321

        Actually, I just think that’s because of your double face-paw, haha! :)

      • Hopper200456

        What does “Nya!” Mean?!?!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    oh scooby doo, so much time wasted in front of a TV that I could have used outside playing… or actually learning something >.>…

    • FuRrY321

      Well, at least by reading Housepets! you can get all those things you missed learning, back! (Or not.)

      For example, now I’ve learned TWO new puns!
