      You know Peanut now has to get even and it should be good if you remember http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/12/22/ew/ and http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/12/24/how-could-he-say-yes-to-a-face-like-that/

      • PrivateElliot

        Yeah, Give Max a photo copy of his secret pictrue, recolored to match His and Grapes color. Thenagain, Peanut would have to explain… No, Nevermind.

    • Ilovehousepets

      Can’t wait to see what happens monday =P

      • Argent Stonecutter

        King in a mascot suit.

        • Mavros

          yeah, King in a suit of himself.
          I would crack up laughing is I saw that one

          • gagi

            OMG lol .. that so needs to happen !!

          • PuDdY15

            Oversized plushie suit of a human-turned-corgi….

            Yeah, I’d see that :D

        • Inu225

          How about King in a human suit… wait.

          If humans who dress up as furry characters are considered “fursuiters” then what is furry characters who dress up as humans considered?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It puts the lotion on its skin…

            You know, that’s really not a lot creepier than the whole farm arc, and Grape yelling at the cows she’s gonna eat their innards…

          • Mukavich

            They’re called “Fleshies”. Concessions deals with this in a fairly recent comic.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Fleshies are robots who want to be humans, or what robots and acorporeals call humans.

            I’m going with skinsuiters.

          • FuRrY321

            @Mukavich
            I tried checking Concession out, but the most recent page – the last panel esp. – turned me away.

            @Argent
            I think I heard that term a few times on Futurama (which I’ll never watch again), so I think you’re right. Skinsuiters = +1

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Couldn’t find the link, but it reminds me of an xkcd comic.

            “Hey, what are you doing?”
            “I’m packing.”
            “Why?”
            “You know furry conventions? I’m part of a group of people whose furry personalities like to dress up as humans.”

            alt text: We’re split down the middle about whether to wear human suits over our fursuits or just not wear suits.

          • Inu225

            Skinsuiters.
            lol
            Wouldn’t that also mean they’d be called “Skinnies” XD

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Check with Hannibal first…

          • Kamron

            I’ve heard “fleshy” jokes before. But not from Concession; that comic is almost the complete opposite of my sense of humor.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m going to go along with the flow. I’ve looked at Concession before and I find comics about abusive people outside my comfort zone.

          • Static Cling

            I’ve seen the term “doller” used for kigurumi cosplay of human characters.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai wanna be part of dis conversation 2 XD

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Also, just had a flash on the “Edgar Suit” in MIB.

          • Oren Otter

            Didn’t Kevin and Kell do a story about them? What were they called?

    • Dr. Prower

      Ah, that Max…

            this comment is now diamonds

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Did you know that in riding this roller coaster… backwards?

            Hya!

            And now platinum comment

        • Rambuctorium

          where are we going?
          Are you coming back?
          Oooooooooo what’s in here…
          Do you smell something burning?
          AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

          • Mavros

            You monster, you killed Glad0s

          • mika

            Its kind of funny, actually….

          • FurryNerd

            NO! you failed to kill Glad0s!!!

          • FuRrY321

            /end of Portal 2 trailer

  5. Exranio

    I’m surprised they managed to find the games.

    • 7ance

      I agree! maybe they got the hang of the names by now.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        lol maybeh :3

  6. Ilovehousepets

    It’s true, winner really doe take all lol =D

  7. Pokeblue

    Lol, definitly a jerk-y move, but something tells me if he didn’t, he might been jumped.

  8. PrivateElliot

    The guy in the suit better hope that his suit has slush in it, or Max is just a evil cat. BTW Kytan, idk you are allowed to swear. I am guessing that the comic updates at midnight. good thing i am in the same timezone.

  9. BluFox

    I love his face…

    • 7ance

      haha blu I do to. btw… do you hang out on any networking sites? =P

  10. Ilovehousepets

    Wait a second…
    If they are showing the wolf cubs in this one,
    Then That means…
    =D KING MIGHT BE IN THE NEXT ONE!!!
    It’s 50/50 i think.

    • PrivateElliot

      OHSNAP KING? finaly. a charactor that i can relate to. as well with Peanut.

      • Ilovehousepets

        I said Might. Don’t the Wolves own king ever since the last Story Arc?

        • PrivateElliot

          Yeah. They do.

        • Thoth

          Naw, King’s ownership is up in the air. He’s currently apparently abandoned and – via some maneuver (or just due to no one caring) – in the custody of the Milton trust.

          • PrivateElliot

            Yes. Or no. That is my random.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            For three different legal reasons…

          • Darastrixen

            I imagine that he’s in the same boat as the wolves: fully licenced as a pet. It probably has something to do with the legality of being a pet not including a phrase requiring you to have an owner, so long as you obey the laws, etc. Now that’s just speculation, mind you, but it seems reasonable given the hints we’ve seen.

          • Thoth

            Well, the wolves are technically owned by the Milton Trust – as are the ferrets (who don’t technically own anything, since they’re property themselves).

            Stray pets – that is, pets without owners – have no rights, and are dealt with by animal control according to the information provided in the forums.

            King has an owner – Pete. Pete may have “mysteriously” disappeared – but that doesn’t mean that his property no longer belongs to him – at least until back-taxes and such come into play.

            Legally, King may have been abandoned, may have been lost or mislaid, or may simply have missed whatever has befallen his owner since the legal authorities don’t know what happened. If Pete was to reappear, claiming – say – that he’d been kidnaped, or King had run away, or some such, then Pete would still be King’s owner – barring some intervention by the Great Kitsune of course.

            Thus the note in this comic -http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/07/21/i-beseech-thee/ – that the ferrets are not technically Kings owner.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        You can relate to being a person transformed into a dog by a magical griffin too? Thank goodness, I thought I was the only one!

        : P

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I can relate to a talking parrot kidnapped into an extra-spacial pocket by an ex-grand-vizier genie too!

        • Ilovehousepets

          I wanna meet pete someday…
          For…Um…some buisness i have to take care of…
          (pulls out Briefcase full of money or whatever pete likes)

    • Dr. Prower

      Stuff…

      That is all.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        u fergot things -_-

    • Pseudo Faux

      King needs some funtime. this will be great fun time and perhaps something he can relate to.

  11. Loki Impisi

    First thing I saw was panel two.
    “Whoa! Peanut is like a housepets version of saxton hale!”

    • PrivateElliot

      Team fortress 2 refences! YAY! wow i am commenting alot.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’m sad that I don’t get that.

        : (

        • FuRrY321

          I’ve never played TF2 (or HL2, for that matter,) for the sole reason that my computer is down there with the DOS boxes. Well, maybe not that low. It does support Windows XP…

  12. Mr.Zero

    R.I.P Peanut. He was a brave dog, but he’s gone now. Done in by a couple of wolf children who mistaken him for an amusement park mascot. Like so many others…

    • PrivateElliot

      He didnt die. We need some more CSI. By that i mean Fido and his police friends.

      • FuRrY321

        I think they’re still trying to figure out how to eat food on a rotating restaurant in freefall.

  13. Kytan

    The cubs came with king… he just didn’t run along to try and stop them because they were annoying him! XP

    • Ilovehousepets

      No. i think it had something to do with them Burrying him in the Last story arc.

      • Kytan

        that to…
        But miles needed king to watch them because he was on duty…..

        • PrivateElliot

          OH right, the cubs did. but miles made them dig him up.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          woo!!! bittersweetcandybowl!!!!!!!! XD

          • PrivateElliot

            what.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/…..^_^

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, what relevance has this?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            kytan’s picture is from bscb

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I see.

  14. ReCreate

    I…don’t get it…
    And maxwell looks funny in the last panel…

    • PrivateElliot

      Max has the overlarge Slush toy. Then Taunted the cubs. he can be such a jerk at times. I just love the faces in this comic, so funny.

      • Kytan

        Ha i bet he’s gonna taunt grape next!!! lol

        • PrivateElliot

          *eyebrow raise* I wonder how. Moucey the Gaint catnip mouse. HA. Hey Rick, Idea. PLEAAAAASE

          • Ilovehousepets

            Catnip is part of the Terrible universe remember.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, SMOKING catnip is part of the Terrible Universe,

            Bino tried to get Peanut catnip for christmas, and Grape DID admit to “nipping” on one of the New Years ones, after going out with Max.

        • GameCobra

          or just give her the slushie <3

          • PrivateElliot

            HUGS. And maybe some Sham-Pane, and maybe a slow motion plushie fight. (Reuse old jokes plz)

  15. Ace

    Max’s face in the final panel is just so great XD

    • PrivateElliot

      Yes
      Because it looks suggestive funny.

      • PrivateElliot

        I meant Because it looks suggestive striked, and funny not. why did the code thing use both if i ended it?

        • Rick Griffin

          You forgot the slash, both times

          • PrivateElliot

            Dang. Thanks for clearing that out. :D

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            :-P

          • Mavros

            ‘,:|

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Comment I was replying to got deleted.

          This one will too, hopefully along with my other ones up there.

      • Mavros

        No, I understood you just fine(he says sarcastically)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Why does it have those funny boxes in the comment?

  16. Thoth

    Well, the Cubs still aren’ t wearing anything like Mile’s tags. Still, a theme park run by ferrets with park security that (presumably) knows about them is still a controlled environment and they are young…

    Bother! I am unable to reach any firm conclusions beyond “The ferrets are giving out overlarge prizes” and “if this keeps up after their special animals-only opening they may find it hard to turn a profit – if they care about things like that” (which is unlikely). Still, if slushy is sufficiently overpriced (unless the name is just a ferretism – which new word I hereby donate to the forum) that might work out anyway.

    • Frank

      Wow! I totally forgot about the tags thing until you said it! thanks! (or should I say “thinks”?)

      • Thoth

        Well, you’re welcome.

  17. Argent Stonecutter

    HI, I’m Mascot the Generic Animal Shaped mascot of Theme Park World. You’ll meet me and my Overpriced Junk Food Buddies around the park, ready to help you find your way among the Confusing Theme-park-themed Rides and Refreshments!

    Oh, and we don’t know what kind of animal Goofy is either.

    • PrivateElliot

      Goofy is a dog. at least, i think. By the way, Check out our new VR pizza, made with real holograms!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        If Goofy is a dog, what’s up with Pluto?

        What kind of cartoon characters would you get in a world where animals walk on two legs and do cartoon stuff in real life?

        • PrivateElliot

          *points to the top of the page* Yeah, And why are mice so HUGE!?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Mickey is definitely a Rodent of Unusual Size.

            [Westley: Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist. [Immediately, an R.O.U.S. attacks him] …]

            Whoa, nested square brackets.

        • Mavros

          …space

        • FuRrY321

          I am slightly puzzled by your question, but let me say this:
          despite the fact that it is not a cartoon, your SL avatar of a ferret has (or did have) a pet ferret. So it’s not that different from Goofy the dog owning Pluto the dog (who mysteriously disappeared when he was found out not to be a dog at all! Rather, he was a Dwarf Dog! D: ).

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You know, my ferret avatar’s pet ferret’s named Pluto for a reason.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            And Pluto is Mickey’s dog.

          • FuRrY321

            I can’t believe I forgot that Mickey owned Pluto, not Goofy. I guess that would be creepy…

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            It’s STILL kind of creepy…

            It’s like Goofy is tacitly agreeing to the enslavement of other members of his race!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Like I was saying… :D

    • Thoth

      Hi Mascot! I’m Confused, the Visitor Avatar for Theme Park World! And I’m here to help you out by not knowing where I am, what I’m doing, or how to get out of here!

      Are you Confused too? Excellent! Lets go meet some Overpriced Refreshments and help keep Theme Park World making a profit!

      • PrivateElliot

        TO THE OVERPRICED$MOBILE! DUNDANA!
        TO THE ALLCAPS AND REUSEING JOKE MOBILE! LALALLADA!

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Mascot: it’s dangerous to go alone. Take this.

          You got MAP!

          ba da Da DAA!

          • Mavros

            Map turns to diamonds!
            ba da Da DAA?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Use diamonds to buy additional map. And also get cupholders installed on horse. Like, seriously? What kind of horse doesn’t have cupholders these days?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That’s a CD drive tray. It’s a digital horse.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            dun ferget de tv

          • mika

            no, its a VR horse.

          • FuRrY321

            It’s a VR horse inside a video game. And it has cupholders. And a fold-up-from-saddle DVD screen.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Ah, a group of people after me own ‘eart.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That’s because your heart is so tasty!

          • FuRrY321

            Wait, so Argent, you steal socks and eat/lick/taste hearts?

            Remind me never to let you into my house. Ever.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Same here; I have few enough socks as it is!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Well, he said people were after his heart! That’s the most logical reason, ain’t it?

          • Maros

            You pick up socks do you:
            Use-
            Throw-
            Lick/-
            If anyone figures out that reference, I’ll be seriously impressed

    • Frank

      Considering that about ¾ of all animal species are arthropods, what would a “generic animal” look like?

      • Thoth

        Perhaps a tribble with vague suggestions of limbs?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          “Alright, Captain, I’m going to have to make a Star Trek reference here.”
          “Very well, if you must.”
          “Well, sir, if they ever got the right food, they’d be worse than Tribbles. Tribbles don’t have claws that catch.”

          Name that book/character/author!

          But only if you want to.

          • Thoth

            “Beware the Jabberwock, Peanut!
            The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
            Beware the Gryphon and Tarot, and shun
            Max, the frumious Bandersnatch!”

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            He took his water gun in hand:
            Long time Maxwell, his foe, he sought,
            So rested he by the Old Oak Tree,
            And rode the Griffin in thought.

            Last two lines:
            http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/11/21/and-she-said-it-had-no-practical-value/

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            any suggestions for a better last line?

            I guess dreaming about somebody else riding a Griffin with you counts as them riding it in thought, sort of a double meaning, but it doesn’t quite have the right amount of syllables.

  18. GameCobra

    I can never get enough of Max. it’s also funny how he just had to do something like that to Peanut. Tricking the cubs to do that to him is super cute and really light-hearted sneaky. I really hope Peanut gets him back someday in the same fashion <3

    • PrivateElliot

      He tricked them? is there something i am missing? OH i just read it through again, and he tricked them to hug him, i thought they said AWW because it was a trick. I AM RETARDED.

    • IceKitsune

      Peanut will get him back one day (or even by the end of this arc most likely) and It will be hilarious.

      • PrivateElliot

        “Hey look Kids! its SLushy! Free cherry slush if you bite the cat carrying him!” “No wait, to violent. HEY KIDS SLUSHY IS THERE! TAKE HIM TO THE MAGICAL LAND OF CANDY!”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Rescue Slushy from the mean old cat!

          • PrivateElliot

            You are credit to housepets. Who ever gets the reference gets a cookie. Yeah, Better idea.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai wanna cookie but no get de reference :(

          • Val Kilmer Batman

    Lol, mr. Overpriced slush man. xD

  20. namelessone

    How come I can never win such comically oversized plushies when I’m at (insert theme park here)?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Because it’s not Theme Park World!

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        The only theme park NOT rigged. Because ferrets only do bribery, not impossible to win games.

  21. Ilovehousepets

    I bet you $5 somebody is gonna make a Gravatar with the slushie face

  22. fastbreak333

    This is Slushy the Overpriced Slush Drink! And you’re watching Niiiiick Jr.! BUP BUP BUP

    • PrivateElliot

      And your watching The Channel meant for kids above the age of 4, so they dont have to watch jr anymore.

      SLUSHY THE OVERPRICED SLUSH DRINK is a sham-pane is slow motion pillow fight addict.

      • Mordark

        How much do you think the pups get in allowance or that they were bestowed with, once only, for the carnival? I would think they got a little something, but not knowing human traditions that well might not be so good in that position.
        And why haven’t we seen King being completely consumed by clown balloon figures yet!? I wanna see that soooo bad!

  23. iHavezMyBirdo

    Lol, funfun.

    • PrivateElliot

      Congrats! you are the… 12th person i replyed to! You get NOTHING!
      cant wait till, Sunday?

      • PrivateElliot

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          It comes 10pm Sunday for me! : P

          Hooray for time zones of the westerly direction!

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Does that mean he wins the oversized plush? :3

  24. I Am...

    Master Plan of Excaping w/ an Over-Sized, Overly Plushed Plushy:

    1: Go 2 a theme park.

    2: Win a OSOPP.

    3: Be alert of all characters who can harm your prize.

    4: When you are in danger alert RED, ’send in the hounds’ on another, unsuspecting, OSOPP winner to distract your alert RED.

    ….XD LOL

    • PrivateElliot

      whats OSOPP mean. EXPLAIN! We are not as smart like for. For I am…

      • Ilovehousepets

        Maybe Oversized Super Overfilled Plush Pal?

        • PrivateElliot

          Thanks for clearing that out. AGAIN GAWD. First i didnt notice the joke in the comic, and then i failed with the code, and now i missed that. Maybe i shuold sleep.

      • I Am...

        …*facepalm* Maybe you should look at my post so I won’t have to sound like a jack.

        OSOPP = ‘Over-Sized Overly Plushed Plushie’

        …yea you should hit the sack for 2day. >_>

        • Ilovehousepets

          NEVER!!!
          mostly because my sister is on my bed…
          again.

          • PrivateElliot

            *eyebrow raise* SORRY MY MIND THOUGHT OF IT GARFDFSHGSDGSD
            He think he was talking to me. And i think he is trying to say that he was going to troll me, but didnt.

          • I Am...

            …um ILHP, I was talking to elliot. I even hit reply on his post…>_>

          • Ilovehousepets

            Woops. sorry bout that. >.<

  25. Valerio

    Maxie is such a jerk!
    He already has Grape, he could restrain from further torturing Peanut! :( Shouldn’t he go after Bino?

  26. Ilovehousepets

    I have only gotten that once on a different site.
    Vpyro. Why must you go through so much just for a stupid RCT3 Fireworks pack D=

  27. Surge

    Just to get an idea, How many people here own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch?

    • PrivateElliot

      I own a iPod Nano 4th or 5th version. the one with the camera. Does that count?

    • Ilovehousepets

      Your avatar reminds me of a friend of mone from another forum i visit.
      I just wish the ppl there didn’t call everybody who like animals furries…
      Such jerks. D=<

      • Ilovehousepets

        Mine*

        • PrivateElliot

          Wait my avatar or yours. IDK

          • Ilovehousepets

            Surge’s. My friend Night Fox Has the same avatar as his except the Orginal red background

      • PrivateElliot

        I hate being called one just because i used to have a PAW in my name. And i am not one, just a normal person that likes this comic. GAWD.
        Maybe i should change it.

        • Ilovehousepets

          I think i sense a beautiful Online friendship.

          • PrivateElliot

            I would use your avatar since its more like who i am, but that wuold be stealing. FRIENDSHIPS? I WANT A SHIP ?FULL OF FRIENDS!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Rick doesn’t like shipping. I had a comment deleted once just because it had an x in it. Oh wait.

          • PrivateElliot

            Wouldnt let me reply to Argent Stone, Sorry. But what does he mean by SHIPPING? I dont get this!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Obsessing about a relationSHIP between cartoon characters. Like Peanut and Grape, King and Tarot, Pete and… no, that’s too scary.

            Oh, here, lose a few hours exploring TVTropes…

            http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Shipping

          • Ilovehousepets

            maybe it causes time paradoxes and they don’t want that to happen?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            And after a few levels you can’t reply directly to messages, it’s a quirk feature of the comments system.

          • Rick Griffin

            Actually shipping I’m okay with, it’s when you get into slash that it gets weird

            What’s wrong with keeping relationships light and fluffy?

            Also I don’t think that I deleted that, that would probably be my other mod who is way stricter than I am, but he’s totally a nice guy so give him a break

          • Rick Griffin

            Also I could go more then five deep but I don’t think I want to encourage much more than this

          • Ilovehousepets

            THY CREATOR, HAS…
            SPOKEN!!!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I definitely didn’t use a slash. Or any of those pervy punctuation marks like the interrobang.

            I think the nesting depth is fine, I was just explaining in my usual confusing way that assumes you already know what I’m talking about because you know there’s a really serious reason I picked a ferret as my avatar and it’s got nothing to do with my ritalin prescription except maybe it does and doesn’t everyone love Hannalore in that other strip I can never remember the name of anyway… wait, where was I?

          • Rick Griffin

            Which is why I said, I am trying to be lenient with it, but I can’t speak for my other mods 100%. (They’re trying to look out for me)

        • PrivateElliot

          I was not talking about THAT . I meant this
          ilovehousepets said “I think i sense a beautiful Online friendship.”

    • Valerio

      iPod classic here (I own a LOOOOT of music)

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      iPhone 3Gs.

  28. PrivateElliot

    Okay, some of the comments got knocked out of the Reply box. why?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Time out for bad behavior.

      • PrivateElliot

        No, i mean there was a huge reply thing, and now its gone. While my comment http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/08/13/winner-takes-all/comment-page-1/#comment-40426 is still there, yet it was part of it.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Rick deletes comments that go too far off topic, but if you were posting comments while he was deleting them your post ends up at the end. And sometimes we get a comments twilight zone where you can’t even reply to comments in limbo without your reply mysteriously starting a new comment thread that magically gets pushed down below new threads.

          And then we get a time paradox, and wurble weeble gleep poit!

        • Rick Griffin

          If I recall, I have been deleting your comments because it started out that you replied to an inappropriate comment, then posted another comment after I did that saying that you totally commented on an inappropriate comment (which is itself an inappropriate comment), and you also posted once again trying to explain what the comment was that I deleted, which is again inappropriate.

          This is getting ridiculous so I’ll just tell you to stop it.

          • PrivateElliot

            okay ._. Maybe i should stop now.

          • Rick Griffin

            Well in case you don’t know why I delete subsequent comments, it goes like this:

            A: What happened to my comment?
            B: Huh? What comment?
            A: I posted a comment about (x) and it’s gone!
            C: Maybe it got deleted
            D: It got moderated probably
            E: What comment?
            etc

            This has happened a lot and it’s silly and completely off topic.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Or that one movie quote comment block. It was fun while it lasted, but it definitely got out of hand. Like, REALLY REALLY out of hand. At least 70 comments. Most unrelated. Hard to scroll past.

            Off topic comments, may ue rest in piece(s).

            And yes, I DO remember that most of them were mine. It was an era of both great victory and great shame.

        • PuDdY15

          @Private

          i warned u bout gett’in to off topic, i did i really did… but whatever the passed is behind us now so-wait if the past is behind us then why am i post’in this comment? that’s actually a really good question. also i wonder what Peanut’s fav ride was or is?

  29. 7ance

    haha Max being a dream crusher. Mile’s cubs look cute here. =^_^=

  30. Mordark

    How much do you think the pups get in allowance or that they were bestowed with, once only, for the carnival? I would think they got a little something, but not knowing human traditions that well might not be so good in that position.
    And why haven’t we seen King being completely consumed by clown balloon figures yet!? I wanna see that soooo bad!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I wanna see King win a plush Joel.

      • Ilovehousepets

        this

        • PrivateElliot

          OR you can get with dat.

          • Mordark

            …or you can get with this

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Fish catch!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            The cat steals your fish and runs back to the sundries shop.

            You don your Puzzled Face.

      • Mordark

        Hmmm, sounds exciting! Or coming out from the games partition with a big plush and shiny crown. Ironic, but a little redundant right?

        • PrivateElliot

          BTW, whats a Joel. Or win a random prize thats a KING from chess. No that would be to chessy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            King was originally Joel, before Pete changed him to a dog and stole his name from him so he can’t even say it any more.

          • PrivateElliot

            OHH thanks Stonecutter. I didnt even know that his name was said.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            We don’t have to get needlessly formal here, you can call me Argent. :)

        • PrivateElliot

          i think you want to get with This Cause this is where its at. THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
          Okay back on topic, i just noticed that Peanut won his prize from a shooting gallery. SHOOTING GALLERY. Better be with water…
          “…And So, due to a problem with a chainsaw, Spot now as a rifle from a themepark game…” Naw…

          • Rick Griffin

            I think the oversized nerf guns from American Gladiators would be best

          • PrivateElliot

            Yes. It shuold be knowing Peanut is one of the most non violent person i know dog in a comic that i know.

          • Mordark

            I dunno, he does play video games which melt your mind and lead to a criminal reputation and or life. 8V

          • PrivateElliot

            ah crapes, just noticed that i left out that Spot now has a rifle from a themepark game for a left hand. since its 1:30am and i’ve been awake since 6:38 am, i should sleep.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’ve never seen American Gladiators, but oversized nerf guns would be cool.

            King: Wait, are you supposed to aim those this way? *wham* [bowled over like a stubby-legged bowling pin]

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            *snork* heh he is stuby n_n

          • Ilovehousepets

            I’m trying to get with this but it’s to hard because i also wanna get with Dat. Help?!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            A little a dis, a little a dat

  31. falcon01

    That sneaky cat!

  32. Gaboris

    Hmmm… when was the last time I could see Peanut with such an angry face? It just looks cool. X)
    Why don’ we have human sized plushes here at home? XP

    • Ilovehousepets

      Why not Housepets Plushes to put in he Merchandi-
      O wait…
      Too much work.

  33. Inu225

    Give Rolly a hug? Ok!!!
    *hugs*

    Slushy: Um… that’s not Rolly. That’s a real roller coaster car.
    What do you me… OOOOMMMMMGGGGGGGgggggggggg!!!

    Things I learned today:
    1. Never buy overpriced shush drinks.
    2. If you’re going hug a roller coaster car do it when its not moving @ 100 mph.

    • Mordark

      They would be primal enough to do that, wouldn’t they. I wouldn’t put it past them to jump right on the tracks and try to hug the lead car.

      …continued if I may:
      3. Peanut is good with a firearm (water air or other)
      4. Max is a riot

      • Inu225

        3. Yes
        4. Definitely Yes. Max you rascal.

        Also I think having mascots based on functional inanimate objects is just begging for trouble.
        You think “Grenadey” or “Knifey” would be fine as mascots? If you have a mascot like Rolly it maybe possible.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          If you have mascots like Slushy, how about The Magic Pudding? Or the animated food that Alice can’t eat after she’s been introduced to it?

          Is being a wolf in Babylon Gardens like being surrounded by walking food all the time? I earlier mentioned that wolves don’t attack humans… I’ve heard nothing about wolves not attacking pets.

          • Thoth

            To be fair, being a sapient carnivore in almost any social environment is being surrounded by walking food all the time.

            After all, you personally know that you could kill and eat the neighbors – but I’d presume that the notion would never cross your mind.

            Hm. If it does cross your mind at all often, (1) please don’t tell me, and (2) please don’t move anywhere near me. (If it doesn’t you’d be quite welcome however; I’l help you move your furniture).

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Well, we don’t have the “take off the collar and go into the woods and nobody will stop you killing and eating your neighbors” option that makes the Housepets universe so edgy.

            Protip: when hiking in the Housepets universe, wear a necktie.

  34. HunkRlz

    Suddenly an “OH YEAH” just popped into my head after looking at that delicious looking slush drink 0.0

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Who will step up and become… KOOL AID MAN?

      Max: *bust through gate* “OH YEAH!”

  35. HunkRlz

    I can imagine the Diabetic coma you’ll experience after consuming Slushy!! ;-)

  36. Jakkal

    Hm… Rick, You forgot to color Peanuts Tail in the first pannel

    • Inu225

      I think that’s the cub’s tail… : /

  37. Firewolf

    HAHAHA!!! OMG(sh)! Hilarious! I haven’t laughed this hard since I heard Spo’s brother was named Spp. I love Max’s expression in the last panel! Explains it all. =)

  38. Val Kilmer Batman

    So, Peanut is carrying the plush in front of him, as can be seen by the lack of visible tags on his collar and the base of the tail being visible, but it looks like he was facing AWAY from the plush and turned his head to yell at the cubs.

    I’m saying that it looks like his head is on backwards,

    plus, wouldn’t you want to carry that on your back? I’d think it would be a lot less awkward than doing the limbo.

    *hides from tomato throwers*

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      What? No tomato-throwers? Aw, c’mon, I’ve never had a tomato thrown at me before!

      Sheesh. You people aren’t touchy enough.

      @_@

    • Frank

      Hey, thanks! I was wondering why Peanut looked so wierd. It didn’t occur to me that he was carrying it in front of him until you said it.

      As a token of my gratitude, I present you with this… uh… basket of tomatoes (since it seems to be the only thing you really want)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Mmm… Tomatoes…

    • PrivateElliot

      Point, You do have.

    • Rick Griffin

      Um, if his head was forward, then his arms would be backwards.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I think that that’s what I’, saying. I got confused because it looked like his head was on backwards. Seen Spaceballs? President Scroob post-beaming.

        “Good God, man! What’s happened to ‘is HEAD?!”
        “It’s on BACKWARDS!”
        “laughlaughlaughlaughlaugh”

    • WingedWolfGirl

      mmm, right master Griffin is.

  39. Val Kilmer Batman

    Peanut’s mouth is now officially the widest it has ever been in the entire comic EVER.

    EVER.

    • PrivateElliot

      HAI IM DAISY! I SAY YES TO YOUR COMMENT, AND WILL NOW TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR GRAVATAR! IS.
      Yes, his head is weird in this comic, and mouth.

  40. e

    Maxwell’s face to funny no words can discribe it. them should have bought a poet

  41. Salenstormwing

    I’m jealous. I want a giant oversized bumper car or slushee drink plushie. Although I like the slushee drinks that are neon green. Green is a great flavor.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      My favorite artificial flavor is blue.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Mmm… tastes like Blue…

        that’s the best.

      • Salenstormwing

        Blue is good except it makes your tongue look like it’s become a zombie tongue. Or you’re a chow dog.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Or a polar bear.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          HEPP! MEH TNNG ITH TYING TO ETH MAH BLEN!!!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            We’re not unreasonable, no-one’s going to eat your eyes.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            A smile is born.

  42. Kytan

    huh Peanut looks mad… maybe he does need that hug!! comere peanut!! (says this with open arms)

    • Ilovehousepets

      I agree with this
      + i like my new avatar.

      • PrivateElliot

        I KNEW IT! you owe me 5 dollars.
        HAI IM DAISY

      • Kytan

        wait why is peanut mad? you can’t be mad when your at… A THEME PARK!!!!

        • PrivateElliot

          He’s peanut. He is barely mad, but i think someone said something to him, and it ticked him off.

          • Kytan

            What if tarot broke up with him?????????? nah she probably didn’t

          • PrivateElliot

            OH SNAP. Rick wouldnt do a plot twist about that right? … RIGHT? Or saw… nevermind Rick would delete this.

          • PrivateElliot

            BTW its not what you think. NOT A REFERENCE.

  43. WingedWolfGirl

    YAY Woolfie Hugs!!!
    Thank you Slushy The Over Priced Slush Drink!

    • Kytan

      feh if i want a slushy i’ll go to speed way!!! where they are oversized and underpriced!!!

      • PrivateElliot

        No, I’ll just watch a movie with undersized drinks for 5 dollars.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      AI WNNA HUG ^_^

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Kay!
        Hugs Sonic, again. :3

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            YEEEEE AI FEEL SO LUVVED 2DAY XD

          • thegamist

            well you do need a LOT of attention…
            :I

  44. FerreTrip

    I’d say that’s a horrible plush toy, but then I realized–for pets, it’s functional!

    Otherwise, sorry to say, honestly, this theme park looks like it sucks…

  45. Argent Stonecutter

    So, I just realized who King reminds me of.

    Iago, in the Aladdin TV series.

    Ex-villainous-sidekick, wisecracking, outsider, and the default punching bag. According to Tad Stones, in the Aladdin ‘bible’ the rule was “when in doubt, hurt the bird”.

    Rick seems to be following the rule, “when in doubt, hurt the corgi”.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You think they could get Gilbert Gottfreid to voice King in the Housepets TV show?

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

        THOU SHALT NOT CAUSE THE VOICE OF KING TO BE PLAYED BY THAT GUY WITH THE FUNNY VOICE THAT, WHILE FUNNY, IS NEVER TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY UNLESS IT BELONGS TO A BIRD.

        On the other hand, Jafar as Pete would be really good.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          OK, I’ll go with Jonathan Freeman as Pete.

          Gilbert Gottfreid for Spo.
          Robin Williams could be Great Kitsune.
          Tom Hanks for Peanut.
          Kathleen Turner for Grape.
          Isaiah Mustafa for Miles.

          • Ilovehousepets

            There’s gonna be a show?!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            We can dream, can’t we?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            To dream the impossible dream…

            Grape: “I’m not unnecessarily violent, I’m just written that way.”
            Kitsune: “Phenomenal cosmic power, awesome living space.”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Whoopi Goldberg for Tarot?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, tarot is mysterious, nor boisterous.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Whoopi can do mysterious and reserved.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh. I’ve never seen it, but okay.

            But maybe the Oracle from the Matrix would be good too, I dunno.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Gloria Foster or Mary Alice?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            The one from the first movie

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      • PrivateElliot

        in English please? No one I dont understand what you are trying to say.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Translation: “Dear sir: King is fourth among those Housepets characters that I have considered for my favor. Grape retains primacy in my affections. Yours, sonic-id-furreh.”

          • PrivateElliot

            Argent has made my day again. haha.

        • FuRrY321

          Is it sad that I do?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, it just means that you have a passing knowledge of another language.

            “Sonicese”

          • PuDdY15

            well i frankly understand sonic but maybe it runs in the family…. who knows.?

            poor peanut his back must hurt. ah well it will heal in no time with….. de ultra super special back cream!… wait, wrong thing.

      • thegamist

        err…
        translation?
        (even the English “expert” of the class can’t figure this one out)

  47. Thegamist

    I once got the chance to win a HUGE crash bandicoot pluche,…
    now guess at what day I attempted to do that
    (snif)

  48. PuDdY15

    i wonder what will be next….. a oversized plush chocolate bar named chocolaty? yeah that probably wont end well.

    • Ilovehousepets

      Or maybe they find the Soda bar or the Snack and drinks area.
      I can Imagine it now.

      • PrivateElliot

        Sasha somehow gets into the park and drinks orange soda without meaning to. That would be FUNNY. But i’m Daisy so dont listen to me. Cause i am to cool and awesome smart.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        But Soda Bar is going to be a ride…

        • PrivateElliot

          pretend that it isnt.

        • PuDdY15

          no… soda bar will have a VR but will only and truly be a soda bar…. i can see it now….. title: THE ONLY PLACE WHERE IT IS TRULY WHAT IT SAYS IT IS. hmmm odd title but it will do.

  49. Skyfyre

    Max’s face is now officially my little pic

  50. I Am...

    btw people, have an evil Friday la 13th ’cause it looks like Max is already! XD

  51. Fuzzypaws

    Never trust a black cat on Friday the 13th!

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Lol, good point!

    • Valerio

      *facepalm*
      Ok, I HAD to expect this, in the end!

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        actually its facePAW

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Is it now?

    • IceKitsune

      lol I didn’t even notice I wonder if Rick planed to have this strip on this day or if it was just a coincidence either way its funny.

    • FuRrY321

      Nice. While I should have seen this coming, I was too distracted by all the bikes that head down to a little place called Port Dover, where, on Fri. the 13th, they all gather for one big party. I mean like, thousands upon thousands of bikers in one port town. You can’t even get near there with a car. Ya just won’t fit.

  52. Adzo

    Either the shooting range is the most generous on planet earth, or, oversized NERF guns or otherwise the level of marksmanship among pets is very impressive. probably option 1. Although I want it to be option 2.
    What I really want is for Daisy to be a fuzzy little Annie Oakley, or some other cute character to be an inexplicably good shot. That would be awesome.

    • Thoth

      It would be fun if Daisy was an expert markscanine.

      Better yet, perhaps she is concealing many advanced commando and ninjar skills to go with the black fur!

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I remember when we all thought that Daisy was actually a genius from a different country and just didn’t speak the language. Because she didn’t want to. Or because she was tired of the trials of being a genius dog. or something.

  53. e

    i get the only giant king plush prize.

  54. Dissension

    I would literally kill for an oversized plush like those. <3

    • e

      *takes every weapon you have*

      • FuRrY321

        His bare hands, too!? D:

        • Argent Stonecutter

          You can’t take them, ‘cos he’s a bear!

          • Valerio

            c’mon, bear with him! those prizes are awesome, though a real bear to handle!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Player: I attack with my bare hands!
            DM: you valiantly beat the crap out of the defenseless beggar zombie with a pair of bear arms you found lying around.

  55. Somecrazyguy

    Nice work, classic! just classic! *Laughs so hard he falls off his chair*

  56. Shyanne

    *hugs Peanut*

  57. Kytan

    man… iv always wanted an over sized slushy beverage plush!!!! but i can never find them

  58. Rags

    Are you really a winner if you “win” something like that?

  59. James

    I wonder if that counts as a “glomp”?

    • Frank

      I’d class it more as a tackle

      • James

        A tackle with love…..and hugs! Too bad Slushy doesn’t get a turn.

  60. King

    haha max, how could you, poor peanut

  61. RockstarRaccoon

    MAX IS TROLLIN AGAIN!!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Y’all bakers be toastin’ in a roll bread

  62. FuRrY321

    You know, I was going to use Max’s face there in that last panel as an avvie, but those cubs were just too cute to pass up.

    Also, I wonder if it’s possible to hook that plushie Peanut has to the actual roller coaster. Knowing the ferrets, I wouldn’t be too surprised if that was the case.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Probably not, it’s got no wheels.

      But Grape’s going to end up napping in it.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Grape and Peanut or Peanut and Tarot, snuggling together in the rollercoaster car, watching a movie.

        Picture it.

        D’AWW

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          WILL NOBODY D’AWW WITH ME?

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Actually, it’s flat on the bottom.
        I bet it would make an awesome bumper car; slidin’ around in the area, every time a bumper car hit it!

        • FuRrY321

          But… it has no hard parts to speak of…
          the impact would turn Peanut into…
          Peanut Butter! (dun dun duuuunn)

          Oh, wait, that’s already his name :P

      • Valerio

        Peanut’s gonna give it to Grape for her naps, to make her forgive him for all the times he woke her up. Daaawww!

        • FuRrY321

          And then he’ll wake her up again, but he’ll put a VR helmet on her. So, when she wakes up, it’s like she’s on the actual roller coaster! >:3 (>Nyahahahahaha!)

  63. Eli

    The irony of this is that my town’s fair just started too.

  64. AceyWinters

    Strangely enough the face on Slushy reminds me of “Rejected” ;3

    • FuRrY321

      Well, he is overpriced…

    • James

      He reminds me of the Kool-aid man…maybe it’s his more expensive arch-nemesis? Or is that soda?

      • Nia

        If it was the that was the Kool-Aid man’s arch-nemesis then he would have installed microphones to listen on people. Like the Kool-Aid man has his cameras installed to spy on everyone. The Kool-Aid man see’s you when you sleep, the Kool-Aid man see’s you in your nightmares!

        • James

          Lol

  65. Greek Geek
