This is not a permanent thing, just messing with colors
just be glad you didn’t find any presents
Wow, you’re fast. I thought I had first. It works either way.
just the luck of the draw matey
and who can type faster ;P
Just what is it with people wanting to be first in commenting?
No one is going to get first like they were seeking anyway.
Yup, first post is always Rick.
lol, your new gravatar works perfectly to what you just said.
oooh i love presents!!!
There is a gift shop down that way, but I think its actually a petting zoo.
“The Gift Shop” is the midway, and “The Petting Zoo” is a carousel.
*facepalms* that was another present joke
(did not mean to seem impatient. I was trying to get first comment so wrote the first thing that came to mind)
Hey, F. Wolf, watch yourself. Try not to use that F word this high in the comments
OMG .. so that’s what the F word means … lol
but yea i agree it’s a horrible word that shouldn’t be used
Erm, uh, the F word? 0.o
Epic indeed ^^
I like it.
I mean to ask for a while now (Probably just delete this later), You’re the comment page moderator right?
Oh, and who’s your avie?
I am. And it’s of my character.
Didn’t there used to be another guy too?
There are others.
Is there by chance a full picture? I’ve actually been wanting to know what it looked like for a while.
Cool! Now what type of creature exactly is that?
Additional Question, are there guidelines for the comments page? A URL or something similar I mean.
Did King needed to go to the restroom before reboarding?
He looks awful sinister there in panel 4.
I like the sunset-looking colors on this one.
Hope I don’t push the rating, but I think that’s be cause he wees like a human. Not really sure though. = P
For some weird reason panel four reminds me of submarine lighting. Or that stealth boat in james bond. Or the ocean in general XD
Blue darkness lighting effect, cause putting too much black-darkness ruins a picture.
(Or any saturation of black)
I think it’s actually because he’s going “Where is everyone?…”
“It’s quiet… TOO quiet…”
“Where is everyb– ARGHOHGODWHAT’SHAPPENING!!!”
I wish every bathroom was like that!!! (no not really) xD
I always thought the object of toilet-going was to try not to fall in… I have seen the errors of my ways.
Miles is a park attendant too? 0.o
If the ferrets own the park and employ Miles, I guess they can tell him where to work
Security gaurd, Park Attendant, Family man. Miles is…well…the most awesome character ever. =)
Aside from Grape, but I’m sure you’n I have different reasons for our choices
You two are probably just confused from the most Awesome comic ever | o |
I am not confused. Mad, deranged, mentally unfit for society, maybe, but confused I am not
Indeed miles is! He’s my Fav! =^_^=
He’s the chaperone, well one of the chaperones.
Miles must work everywhere! XD
Everywhere the ferrets go.
Everywhere the ferrets go=everywhere. =D
I like the coloration, just save it for an epic battle. Or a completely emotional part. But this was still funny
The coloration’s like that probably because it’s sunset.
It’s certainly very cinematic. The kind of quality you see in an anime movie as apposed to the actual anime. The leap in quality is about that level. I don’t think it’s just the colouration that’s changed either. Panel 2 is glorious.
I know it would mess up the comments, and probably cause some confusion, but we really need a way to “thumbs up” a comment.
Oh wait, we already do.
LOL that was great it was worth the wait that we had to go through
Is that doberman Kevin? He’s been working out. . .
. . . more.
I like how any time I draw a muscular character everyone has to comment on how they’ve been working out
Well taking previous picture (drawings) as reference, Kevin’s buffed so. Maybe similar scenarios as well in the past?
And this is a little late but it might very well be some high form of praise for people to notice even the subtle details of your work.
Like for example, most people would just scan through their textbooks but would absorb the atmosphere and content of a novel they like.
Just saying that you have an interested audience compared to those who just open the site out of necessity or habit.
It’s cuz Big “Turn Every Game into Tackle” Kevin looks bigger compared to his last appearance
Everyone ALWAYS SAYS THAT
Soon you’re accidentally gonna put Rex, Miles, and Kevin in the same panel, and you’re gonna run out of room. You’ll have to eat the next panel to fit them
Break the fouth wall then ^^
You could try checking the reactions of people when you do the opposite, or maybe it would just be a loss of words.
Yes. To fit Miles, Kevin, and Rex in the same panel, you will have to break the fourth wall, Rick. Think you can materialise a Kevin for all of us?
Here’s something for a change, why is Argent tagged as Keene for the past few strips?
. . . or I’m just confused.
Oooh, interesting. Keene had a creamy neck in http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/09/the-voodoo-they-do/ too…
But he was panda-style in http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/08/04/your-funventure-safariventure-adventure/
Maybe he dyes his neck fur?
It went from brown to cream between Aug 4 and Aug 6:
[ACTIVATE THE RICK SIGNAL]
*rick signal activated*
Wait! Maybe it’s mood-dye! Like a mood-ring, but in fur dye form!
Batbrains has an avvi for each emotion. OMG, I’m gonna do that now. I am a geniuos
Git outta the way, you Rick-blocker!
I didn’t notice Kevin, but I was sure thinking Miles looks cute as heck in that little jacket.
That’s his work uniform : )
and Daryl has a similar one as well.
Ah, yes, I recall. It didn’t look so cute when he was holding Thomas at arm’s length.
Actually I liked this better.
wo u guys r rite he iz cute in dis :3
Ah! I am perishing! I can think of nothing much to deduce from that!
Oh well. It’s very good anyway.
That the park will be open after dark?
Ah, I am rescued at the last moment! There are deductions to be made here after all…
Hm. Perhaps the blank nametag is not simply because it’s too small to write on but indicates that the ferrets want the staff to be anonymous without going to the expense of hiring french waiter ninjas?
Also I must admit I kind of like the new color style
Ironically, it’s called a restroom though you get thrilled, shocked, terrified, excited, yadayadayada, yet never rest.
derp. It was called bathroom, and it does give a bath.
Not quite a misnomer, but instead very literal.
I guess the park has a few more surprises in store.
just think if the bathroom is like that what is the restroom like…… would thier be beds…..
Alt Text: I suppose my first clue should have been that nobody was coming back out
Thank you for your good deed =)
The Bathroom, enter if you dare. None ever come out again. (3hr wait time)
The line looks pretty fast as King was flushed in no time. . panel. . blah.
And now there’s alt text in the comments!
Hey, there’s a feature for that so why not use it?
Besides some of my posts would be a stronghold of text if I don’t use alt text.
what strip is that avatar from?
Hypergenesis’ avatar there? I believe it’s from the “A Sinister Shadow” arc, when Fox is rescued from the PETA guys.
I realized I don’t need to go anymore. . .
Okay, I was about to say “Okay everyone, avatars, King, fifth panel” but I see you beat me to that.
King, genie of the lamp.
And none too happy for it xD
I actually think i prefer this colour style
I do wonder, how much longer did this take compared to the usual comic?
I’m actually diggin’ this color format, a lot! It’s got a soft ambient glow to it. The first couple and the last two panels kinda refer how we tend to feel the sun when we’re at theme parks.
Although, when I first looked at it, I had to blink twice before I realized the change :3
Now I’m afraid to ask where the water fountain is.
Or the kiddy pool.
Oh, you want the sandbox?
Wait, wasn’t that the comfort station?
No, the men’s room is a gym.
I tried the bathroom already. It’s a spa!
No, really, you want the tanning booth. “That doesn’t even make sense.”
Wasn’t that the treehouse?
You mean the restroom, not the bathroom!
I already had a nap, thanks.
[Yes, I got mixed up]
so do u enoy havin conversations w/ yer self ?
Best person to point out my mistakes is me!
Because as they say, self-realization is the key to s. . .
or because just correcting yourself with another post is boring.
Self-actualization. The peak of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
YES! We get King, in perfect King form, and we predicted that finding the toilets would be a challenge.
Though I would have thought they’d be named after a ride.
Looking at King’s situations and his profile, I’d say he’s right.
The fact that the ride is called “Bathroom” and the restroom is just called “restroom” makes perfect sense to me.
It reminds meh of a dream Ah had when Ah wa a teenager, minya! “^w^
Bet you woke up flushed.
I see what you did there!
Welcome back, Aerix! *man glomps*
YYYYYAAAAAAAHHHHH AERIX YER BACK XD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
The colour is certainly different but interesting. I like the effect, giving more unity between the colours of each panel.
And about the strip, King is in it, and that always mean a great strip! Long life to this cute corgi!
I love the new colour style. I hope it stays around to be honest.
Epic and ambitious indeed, and the joke does work. All worth the wait, though I’m wondering how many people just skipped a few hours of sleep waiting for this (yay time differences – I get new strips in the morning instead!).
I started waiting since 07:00, when new strip usually comes out.
You know, I’ve never stayed up until 1:00 am (when the strip usually comes out here; EST) so I didn’t even notice the “long wait”. Frankly, if everybody actually caught up on some sleep, and checked the comic when they got up the next day, I think we’d give Rick enough time to do this (almost) all the time!
It’s not that there’s anything wrong with the usual colouring, it’s just that, this way, it helps to convey the time of day/indoor-outdoor scenes better.
I was playing Assassin’s Creed on the PS3 and kept on returning to check on the comic that day, but soon I got bored and just decided to power off the PS3 and wait for the comic.
today’s comic is SOOO good on so MANY levels. *sighs happily*
also, it’s a tad worrysome that Miles is being reasoning like them ferrets. Oy.
Why? Miles’ reasoning is purely sound.
Bathroom = Toilet + Sink + Bathing facility, usually the one found in homes.
Restroom = Toilet + Sink, usually found in public places.
So what is “Toilet + Sink + Shower”? Washroom? I know just “Toilet + Sink” is called a “Powder Room” when it’s on the main level…
The shower is a bathing facility.
The washroom is similar to the restroom.
–>I think it’s more of the usage restrooms are usually in places where one might be expected to take a. . rest (restaurants, hotels, parks), while washrooms are usually in places where there’s a high amount of erm, “dirtifying?” elements (schools, factories).
Powder room is more of a woman’s restroom.
… except when Bugs Bunny is involved …
Sam: Quick, rabbit! Get the match before it blows up!! Ain’t ya gonna get it?
Bugs: *shakes head*
Sam (sweating): OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! (dives overboard)
Bugs Bunny: I don’t know what he’s so excited about. Talcum powder doesn’t explode.
I am the typo that ruins your punchline?
Would you look at that two LT references in the same day.
It’s quite rare to see a post that contradicts and reinforces itself with the same reference. =P
So, the sunset lighting implies that this arc is almost over?
Surprise surprise, Theme Park World is proud to announce the newly opened Theme Park Hotel.
“We were going to call it ‘Hotel California’, but the lawyers didn’t like it, so we called it ‘No Vacancy’.”
“The restaurant is called ‘Cafe Exit’.”
“It’s a hotel themed hotel!”
Doodie doodie doodoo. . . Don’t go in the “Spinning Cups”, you can’t resists the drinks in there.
That’s not hotel themed!
Fine, I’ll take down my theme park themed sign to unveil the sign stating “Distilled Tap”
How about “No Standing”? Or “Overflow parking”?
“No Standing” is the convertible ballroom/disco
“Overflow Parking” is the walk-in three story theater, that’s also the waiting room for pending guests.
So the bar is called “The Lobby”?
If only that wasn’t the multipurpose sports court.
What about the “Fire Escape”?
That’s the arcade.
And Flammie comes in as the C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!!!!!
I’m not sure it really counts, especially because he was continuing the conversation, but also because there was no combo. I am the raincloud crying over your festivities.
… I am the terror that flaps in the night …
Lucky guess with the “he” or did you know somehow?
To be fair, there was a combo of ferrets. Even if some were height restrictions.
I wonder how Keene’s doing, what with the whole “restriction adjustment” and all.
I’m pretty sure the theme park has a ‘night time’ series of events.
…The stage production.
heh der wuz ah maikle jackson stage show at canibe lake park
Actually, all the lights turn off and a giant magnifying glass hovers above the park to let everyone see the galactic core.
And the incoming Pak ramjets.
Okay seriously, who made this theme park? Willy Wonka?
Willy Wonka isn’t wacky enough for the ferrets.
So what, his cousin made it then?
As Keene had mentioned, they were using darts to choose the theme. So they could have made a few lists of rides and attractions and threw darts at them as well for name, type of ride, crossed with what and surprise. Thus the park has no more planning than a night of shiritori and a barrel of orange soda.
Two places ahead of King in the line, that looks like a cat. Boy, is HE going to be mad coming out…
lol. This is what came to mind when I noticed that.
I always laugh when that commercial comes on. It’s so funny how the cat keeps its legs so still. Maybe because it’s of the ragdoll breed (hinted by the upside-down “V” on the face).
I also love the music. :3
Curiosity makes the cat go into the pool….scuba diving. XD
The guy before Kevin and “neighborhood dog” is also a cat. But hey, some cats like water right?
*Guy after Kevin and “neighborhood dog.” The dog in front of King kinda looks like the “Invisible Woman” dog from Peanut’s comic
True, but I think most cats “like water” as in, drinking from the tap in the washroom/bathroom/powder room/whatever. But, they don’t like it when they slip into the stream of wet water…
But the Turkish Van is a breed of cat that actually enjoys swimming. I think that was what Mr. Blutarsky was getting at.
This comic’s art style is like if Rick’s normal art style and his Housepets art style had a baby, but then were forced to place that baby into a space pod and send it off to Earth as their home planet was being destroyed….
I’m guessing U no likey.
ai dun get it :l?
Superman, folks, Superman. I was trying to say it’s awesome.
ooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh ai get itz now ^_^
Well, Supercomicstyle, but whatever.
Hey! I thought dogs hate water!
Dogs don’t hate water actually. . . Enumerating. . .
Water Spray: It’s the surprising uncomfortable mist that they dislike.
Baths: Usually due to traumatic experience since dogs are curious creatures beings.
Floods: Who doesn’t hate floods?
Tsunami: See above, except replace flood with tsunami.
Distilled Water: Doesn’t have a taste.
French Toilet Water: Not actually toilet water (Tap water, on some cases gray water) [ see: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/09/10/an-understandable-mistake-to-make/ for more information. ]
Dogs love water, so long as the “B word” isn’t involved.
And if dogs hate water, they’ll dehydrate.
Previous answers were to answer the question “I thought dogs hate THE water.”
OK, who haven’t we seen at the theme park yet? We’ve had Peanut and Max, but no Grape, right?
Grape appeared in the bus with Max
Bus doesn’t count. We haven’t seen her dealing with the park.
Anyone wonders what would happen if Rick suddenly makes a comic featuring Butter and Jelly on a real date. . .
I like that notion. Even if it is about hypothetical characters we will probably never see and would almost certainly never see again.
Daisy, Fiddler, Keys, Lana, Duke, Simon, Rock, Pit, Daryl, Lucretia . . just to name a few.
There’s Zach and Fox as well. I’m curious about how everyone will be featured, actually. There’s still plenty of rides to explore, and I wonder if the Woodland Critters have somehow tailed followed Zach and are pestering him. Maybe he’ll get so distracted he accidently rides the Pizza Pavilion.
I was actually thinking a while ago, that unless Rick Griffin plans on turning this arc back on track for the story soon, if this arc has one, that he’d try to cover everybody in the park, without using the same character twice. So far it does seem to be the case.
It’s a whole arc of one-offs!
Haha, perhaps it is.
I’m suddenly reminded of The Zoo arc.
Ain’t it fun, we’ve got basically the whole cast in one adventure for the first time ever.
Wet dog xD
but wet dog iz an ewwy smell XP
Probably not to a dog, but the bus driver is going to need danger money on the trip home.
There’s a lot of pet scent removers on the market these days. They claim to be able to remove the scent off wood, textiles, marble and even the pet themselves.
I lve the golden washed out colors that happen around sunset effect you have going there. And I commend King for not going in the pool, espeshaly since what the rides name is I might just on principal XD
I’ll just add in some minor stupidity.
Notice that in panel 5 the water is blue while it turned green by panel 7.
Yellow + blue = green.
Panel 5 has the “indoors” blue lighting.
Also, I think the green is the reflection from the trees in the background. The water itself looks like a faint blue with a tinge of yellow from the sunset, perhaps.
The alt-text in his comment SPECIFICALLY said to not argue the lighting.
Yeh, but it’s wrong.
and we know any wrongs should be corrected.
By George, I think he’s got it!
Actually a cute little brown ferret named Argent gave it to me. Oh well, I guess I’ll name him George and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him. . .
did anyone notice that kevin’s eyes are red?
Kevin’s eyes have always been red.
it’s part of his charme!
Apparently his dog tag is a stop sign or at least a red octogon.
A stop sign is quite more probable, though he doesn’t really need that, nossir…
A “Beware: Mountain Goat” sign would be more appropriate.
No, he’s too much of a klutz to be Kitsune’s avatar
I looked at you name, then at the comment you replied to, and then I’m like, wow, his nama fits! But then I thought about it and remembered GK had red eyes. Still.
But do take note that Tarot’s eyes are green only when she is channeling Spirit Dragon or using her powers, otherwise it remains yellow.
dunno what it is about this comic but it looks different, the hues?
Anyways it looks amazing, brings a step more realism to the cartoon world that looks just great!
best amusement park ever!
for the ferrets, of course.
I do wonder what turn of events after King went through the door led to him being caught in a water vortex of sorts.
There’s always room for a trap door!
Whoever designed this park is a genius.
Triggered either by:
1) Pressure sensor on floor or toilet bowl.
2) Closing the door.
3) Flushing the toilet.
4) The roll of tease you.
Closing the door, I think. If it was flushing he wouldn’t be looking for a tree.
Maybe it’s all of the above, or certain combinations in different cubicles?
I think the door lock would give you maximum surprise and minimum risk.
Close door … *click* AUGH!
Probably not the most comforting sound to hear in the bathroom.
What would be done about the doors? Automatic unlock?
It doesn’t have to be an actual working latch. It just has to look like one.
Devious. I guess it doesn’t matter if they notice it’s not locking properly when they’ll be sent into a whirlpool.
Who ever said there was a toilet bowl?
A urinal wouldn’t be in a stall.
They wouldn’t risk contamination by using dugouts.
A potted plant would make the water brown.
A litter box would pollute the water.
A tire would have to be hanged.
A mailman wouldn’t encourage movement.
Durrrr. . .
The coloring and artwork in this comic is VERY impressive. Is the time of day close to sundown? Just guessing from the yellow overtone.
Oh my god I love what you did!!! I love that the line art is toned down, it all looks really nice. :B Omg do moar plz.
Now why just mess with them? This style looks awesome man!
I’m not someone to accept changes, like I freaked out when I had to change my dorm room to the one next to it witch is just the same, but I like this look. X3
Ya say everyone says that Kevin is buffed… well it’s true so deal with it. :p
King’s expression in the 4th panel is priceless. Then again, it looks like its meant to match up with the alt text.
“Where is everyone?” ~ King
Next thing you know, the entrance is going to be the exit in this park.
I’m surprised he was able to hold himself the whole ride…
Read title. XD
i like it, adds a very soft dusky feel to the comic.
THIS IS MY NEW FAV COMIC!!!! I LOVE THIS!!! XD…yay for King!!!
This is very impressive! It’s an afternoon setting and it really sets the tone for the day! ^.=.^ Great Work!
“…this is temporary, just messing with colors..”
I WAAAAAAANT!!!! Keep it Rick!!! Keep the overtones and keep the shading style and everything else that you say is temporary because what you have here is EPIC AWESOME.
Why? I think that Rick should keep it temporary because then it could return from time to time as surpises
It’s too confusing aaaaaaarrhh!
indeed it its @__@
No, it’s quite simple, whatever you’re looking for, you don’t go to, instead you look for whatever has the name of what you don’t want to go to and find that place. If it looks nothing like what you want, then that’s the place you were looking for in the first place.
And have a nice cup of something completely but not entirely unlike tea.
On almost every page I’ve commented, there are always topics that call to be a goat. . .
Goat: The target of pranks and ridicule.
I’m just saying that there are those that never gets taken seriously since the comment was already talking about confusion.
…And then a 1,000 HousePets fans where well pleased; for they had seen King.
1. I wonder what kind of ride, A Tree is.
2. The shading style iz awesome!!!
yay king… but i was expecting him to be hanging with fox…. oh well cant win ‘em all.
hey doesnt king look a bit… natorious in that forth panel?
oh wait he must have been trying to go to the king cave! it’s like the bat cave and oe of the entrances is in a stall!
whos his batman equivalent partner?
*reads wut ai sed* wow… no errors huh weird
He looks more nAtorious in the later panels. Natorious, with an “A”, would mean “bath-like”.
No, you goon, it would mean “birth-like”.
I say keep the color scheme that way. Looks very summery. I’m not sure if this was the intention, but the shading convies heat and mugginess very well.
Remember; tree > toilet. *nod nod*
You look so excited!
Using the tree…King’s really starting to get a hang of the “whole dog thing” huh. Hope his owner isn’t too mad but since Keene owns the park anyway he shouldn’t be.
With a sign like that I wonder if the rest of the guys in the line are actually aware of where they’re getting themselves into.
Beautiful colors. Love that warm summer evening feeling on today’s strip.
King! There’s a few behind the pool!
Looks like King won the “wet fur contest.”
I like the shading and colors. It makes it look like it’s toward the end of the day
WOW. And here I am a few days back from Noah’s Ark waterpark. Totally looks like it at sunset here. Instantly makes me think of that warm, tired, happy feeling you get by the end when you’re finally going on all the long-line rides because almost everyone’s cleared out. Nicely done. (But it can’t be the end of the day now, can it?)
I just popped over to see the new update, and I LOVE the colors you used. I won’t complain about awesome things like this. I particularly like panels 2-5 and 7.
Wow, I really like the colors, really looks like sunset there.
wrong email >.>
yay king fell into a pool!!! but not just a pool, it was one filled with chocolate!!!
wait wut *thinks about it* eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! X.X
“slaps his own face” not that kind sonic…. im talking the delicious topping that goes on icecream.
owww….. *starts crying and runaway*
Quite lovely. Worth the wait. Now if I can only remember my gravatar password so I’ll have a fitting one for the occasion. (didn’t meen to sound rushing earlier, i was just joking around)
ai just noticed that ders ah life guard in der 7th panel O.O
i wonder what the first idea was gonna be?
N00bish question… what first idea?
this one was late because rick got the idea while making the last one.
Well, either that OR he just finished this one and then altered the colors…
I’m not sure why I bothered reading all these comments.
I really, really love the new coloring scheme. Not much else can be said.
“So I just used the bathroom.”
“So how’s that work out?”
whoo yay bad pun!!!
“Restroom” Is probably also the name of a ride…
Panel 7: “It’s ALIVE!! MUAHAHA!”
Is he really still alive when you think about it?
Do you guys WANT to know how surprissed I am that NONE textbaloons are CENSORED?
Using it too much would dull the comic so it was a good choice to have removed the text balloons altogether.
I mean you´re being flushed down a “toilet” what´s your first reaction?
me: what the **** !?
Funny comic aside, I do have to say that the whole coloring used here is quite interesting to look at. Perhaps it’s a bit more complex than the time its worth, even more given the nature of the comic itself, but I’d just like you to know that I do find the work you put into this strip high notch.
Thank you for your hard work and effort delivery fuzzy goodness 3 times a week.
The reason it took so long was because he started late, though, so IF he did this coloring from the beginning, it MIGHT not take too much longer than it normally would.
tarot got the foresight wrong. It wasn’t sabrina that would be nearly drowned it was king. and it didn’t happen in 3 years either…
…But they are seperate events, and bear no relation 2 the other.
Or you could also say “separate entities, separate fates”.
I’ll take a double prophecy, easy on the angst, extra schadenfreude, and a side of wacky antics.
That’s the most awesome ride ever! I WANNA GO I WANNA GO I WANNA GO!
Nice colors. Kind of make it more interesting
Looks like sundown to me.
Yay! King is back!
Plus, that ride does look awesome XD
Gorgeous coloring! I’d love to see more of this!
Awesome Rick. Mess around more often.
It was well worth the wait. I love miles! =^_^=
I think Rick secretly loves King, why is it that all the strips he appears in are amazing?
its king thats why there already that amazing hahaha
Because he is, but when you look at
his history, he was the first human face to appear.
(got cut off from my comment)
or the first one to get a prose, and a great one at that.
Well, so far, there have only been two, possibly 3, actual human faces drawn. I said possibly three because I don’t think that the half of Bill’s face you can see underneath his helmet counts. But some people might. Then again, there is THIS strip:
So nevermind, I guess it WOULD be three faces.
well, i hope he had an interesting ride? the mislabeling in this park is truly terrible indeed
awwww, Poor King, looks like an awesome ride though.
…Is that Cale, Balbaroy, and Alex from PetFriendly? Is Rick putting in cameos from HP-based RP characters?
PEE IN THE POOL! MAKE A FLOATER!
Not permanent but very aesthetic nevertheless. Looks more real than comic in my opinion. I like it. X3
Have to say really digging the colours, really nice soft tones with little shifts. Makes it a softer feeling all over. Kind of like a backlight throughout the whole thing, not sure if a sunset thing or just a cool fun washout experiment but really nice all around. Hope to see it again if it doesn’t stick around.
:sing: “Oh, well, whatever. Never mind.”
I guess King IS potty trained.
Funny part is that the “Men” label was there to fool ya. x3
Who’s the lifeguard in panel 7?
Better question: what is the lifeguard in panel 7?
Something with three-jointed legs!
Yeah, um, it looks like a cardboard cutout standee to me…
Is it because of the white background behind it? That’s the lifeguard’s chair, and it’s sitting on it. It might be looking elsewhere though.
it looks like some disfigured animal with a beret on his head.
wonder why a lifeguard would be way back there if theres a dog chokin on water that has a weird name like king…. seriously dogs learn to help animals in need like that…. gosh
If you look at it, King never produced any bubbles except for the ones created when he entered the pool, but that’s just the law of inertia at work. So actually he was never drowning.
I JUST NOW realized that people, or at least animals, in the HP universe have only three fingers and a thumb per hand. I was looking at panel seven. Comment related because I was zoomed in on the “lifeguard”. Which I’m pretty sure is a cardboard standee.
That’s a tradition in the larger cartooniverse that originated in animation: it simplified the animation if you leave the little finger off and spread out the other fingers, and since the little finger generally moves with the ring finger it still looks OK.
You learn something new every day.
Hm, I didn’t really think much about how the animals have three fingers and a thumb, but that does make a lot of sense.
I went back through the archives, and the humans have five fingers, though often the hands are in positions where the thumb isn’t seen.
Also, having four fingers makes the drawing less cluttered.
Sorry if this is an inappropriate comment but Kevin has a really nice butt in panel three.
What do you say to that?
Eh. . . Nice tail?
hmmm y’know maybe he coulda said “Miles…. do u know where i can find a tree….?
…and B directed 2 another ride
