I totally believe him.
Noone with black speech bubbles, capes, and a creepy red mask could EVER be a villain!
tru dat -_-
of course hes not evil dont you see?
he dosent have a gotee..
The rhyme makes it convincing!
But the syllables are completely off!
I, Lex Luthor, agree, that this guy is most definitely not a villain. That’s because, as a villain, I, Lex Luthor, can tell who is evil, and who is not. And I’m definitely not just another user in disguise as Lex Luthor. Definitely.
Zat Kitsune is a Spy *shapeshift*
That Grape is a frickin’ spy.
ZAT GRAPE’S A BLOODY SPY!
GRAPE EEZ SPY!
Housepets Fortress 2
THAT WIZARD IS A SPY!
You know he’s not evil because of the black text in the white bubb–oh, wait.
“She turned me into a newt… What I got better”
Are you in POT class too?
Truly! Pete’s not evil. . .
. . . Just sort of a jerk.
Nope, absolutely not. Nothing to see here. Move along.
*waves hand* these are not the droids you are looking for.
These are not the droids we are looking for *walks away*
Hey everyone, its cousin Vinny! He’s such a kidder, thats why we tossed him off the goldengate bridge I mean he was such a pain.
My name’s Vinny O_O
You’re not evil are you?
“I’m not evil, I’m just drawn that way”
Yeah, evil is bad!
HENCE THE NAME
That was great lol “No” and I also loved panel 4
Whoa whoa! Take it easy man. What’s with all the violence and hate?:
“…find a wizard! And beat the secret out of him.”?
Sheesh. Is violence really the rational answer?
What? Why did my comment went all the way here?
Because it felt lonely and wanted some company.
It works for Grape, why shouldn’t it work for Stripe?
But despite all appearances, Stripe is not a cat. XD
how would you know? O_o
We were told by Peanut that wasn’t.
Ignore this. He erased it.
I like the nefarious villain, without even seeing anymore. Just looks nefarious. yeah!
What nefarious villain? I don’t see a nefarious villain. That guy in the red? No way, man! He just saved an orphanage from a power-mad young orphan girl who used her mind-control song to get adopted into a position of power!
He’s the nefarious one standing next to the nefarious looking one. But the freaky orphan girl is cool too.
wizard convention? wonder where dumbledore is. wait, IS DUMBLEDORE THAT RED GUY THAT IS TOTALLY NOT A VILLAiN?
No, Dumbledore drove the flying car off a cliff and into the sunset in an eastward direction at high noon after putting on his aviator sunglasses.
No doubt with a big stack of knitting magazines in the back.
I had a cool comment but it’s awaiting moderation.
And it’s gone. They killed it.
It had a flying car, and sunglasses, and sunset in the east at noon, and EVERYTHING!
Did it have a banana?
sun glases has been a moderated word ever since this strip took things out of hand
I think that’s why
Oh. And now it’s back. YAY!
No banana, therefore it didn’t have EVERYTHING because bananas are part of EVERYTHING.
Oh just because he’s wearing all red, has red pupils, his clothes resemble devil horns, and his speech bubble is black doesn’t mean he’s… where was I going with this again?
Almost through a not guilty verdict. . .
These aren’t the wizards you’re looking for.
haha you had the same thought. but I said “droids” still.
“No” lol priceless!
No. You can have this one.
Will you answer “No” to this question?
It is possible. But not likely.
You have been defeated, good Sir or Madam.
Jeeves alter-ego “The Magic Eight Ball”.
Also it’s Sir…
Sir Bunny or Sir Inu?
OH MAI GAWD AI CAN’T REED ITZ DX!!!!!
Um… I guess Sir Inu.
@ sonic id furreh
It says “I’m a guy you know!”
nuuuuuuuuuuuuu ai can’t under stant ur language >.<
Sauce for the goose, wot?
ai’m so confused T_T
indeed you are young pawed-one but you have much to learn……
Did I confuse? !?(>_<;?
Yes!!! My life's goal has been fulfilled.
(Puts check mark on lists-to-do)
ai think dat calls fer ah victory huggle ^.^ *opens arms*
So you can be a villain or nefarious, but not both.
Redundancy. . . Who would have Thoth?
How many more of these until we get back to the acceptable style?
Darn it Darkfire, that was the third scouter this week! I called the shop, and they’re backprdered for, like, five months now. Something to do with a production bottleneck or something.
*mutter mutter grumble humph*
LOOK at the thing! It’s in pieces! They’re’s no way that duct tape can fox it this time, man. Sorry.
Have you tried love, some glue, a purpose in life, and some wiring?
Sorry I’m late. Not enough ducktape? NEVER! Allow me.
That should do it. Lemme know how it turns out.
ducktape is the force. why? because it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the world together, thats why!
Don’t be such a spoil sport.
I’m not. I’m just asking the same question many other people have on their minds since this is the least favorite part of the comic. I’m sorry, but it’s the truth. Usually you’d have more than 200 comments easy.
Actually, I think that some of the more… active… commenters have been more restrained lately.
Except for me. I seem to be just as active as ever.
I would be one of said commenters
Same. I just haven’t said anything. XD
acceptable? what do you mean by that
The “Spot (superdog)” strips have been called by Rick “The artist needs a break from art”
I don’t think it’s upf for discussion that each strip is an art masterpiece, and people like that. Lax, however, seems to have been spoiled by it
Don’t forget to have someone break the 4th wall at some point.
Does it count if you only break it in the alt text?
but i like the 4th wall……would you leave it be if i hung pictures of you all over it?
Big Red is probably going to turn out to be the nicest person there. Just you wait! I know I might have have a chance at being possibly sort of right… maybe
Well… this IS Peanut we’re talking about here. You never know.
Niceness is relative though.
Hmmm. I wonder where Val Kilmer Batman is?
I was watching a movie. I’ll make some more email addresses tomorrow and take some of the Stripe Lady-Cat avatars you made. I MUST HAVE THEM!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAA!!
Also, on my iPhone, it looks like my Stripe avatar is eating radioactive popcorn. Kind of.
Yeah, I see it.
Make more email addresses? Why don’t you just use the plus hack?
wuts dat :3?
Because. It’s easier for me to use an inefficient method that I already know than for me to figure out a new, more efficient, overall BETTER way to do things.
You’re not the type who, when I ask for your IP address, you send me a screen shot embedded in a Word document?
And I’ve told you ten times already that we use Solaris in the data center?
That kind of thing?
Let’s just say that I’m rather less… tech-savvy than I sometimes appear to the even less initiated, and that I do my best to ask instead of doing something stupid.
I CAN find my IP address though. And just copy paste it into an email or whatever. I think I can find it, at least. I did once.
Mostly I figure out my computer through trial-and-error, intuition, and not touching things if I don’t know what they are. Probably not what most people expect of a 15 year old who spends all his time playing video games, since everybody knows that playing video games gives you access to all kinds of tech-knowledge and that you can fix anything.
Wow. That was a long comment.
Also, what’s Solaris?
Solaris is Oracle’s version of UNIX. It doesn’t run Microsoft Office. It runs big database engines for Fortune 500 companies.
If you want to gain tech knowledge, start writing games instead of playing them. That’s what got me into computers back in good old 1972.
AHEM Argent. You mean SUN. It is SUN’s version of Unix. Just because Lameacle bought them doesn’t mean it’s theirs, because they are lame and Sun was not lame.
If Sun was not lame, why did they pour all that icky System V stuff on top of a perfectly good SunOS?
Best. Nefarious. Wizard. Guy. EVAH!
Did Stripe go through the window when there is a perfectly good door on the front of the building? She’s really going full throttle with this hero stuff!
Why 5100 times 100?
The 5 is not a cardinal, it’s an ordinal.
It’s supposed to be panel 5 100×100.
All things considered, if she did use the door instead, she probably would have plowed through it with an equal amount of destructive force.
the two wizards that tell the joke are like the two old guys from Muppets. just thought I would throw that out there in case nobody got the reference.
Stabler and Waldorf, i believe.
… No, i don’t still watch the complete VCR set i have under my bed, whywouldyouask?
I don’t want this Spot (Superdog) arc to ever end! XD
But it will, and you will be glad.
One more icon before I go to bed:
Not bad, if I do say so myself. Four avies cleaned up in one hour.
And I made this observation earlier. It’s probably just me, but Jim-jims teeth look a little bit too forward to the front. Anybody else think it makes him look sort of like a vampire? And would he have those powers too? Just curious.
Hulk Vampire must drink the blood of super-villains, or… he gets the munchies.
Totally not a nefarious villain
Lady Dog is my new favorite heroine.
So far, Jim, definitely showing signs of housepet awesomeness.
seems trust worthy to me, i may get the gentle chap in the ominous red cloak, horns and pitch fork to watch my house for the weekend.
i like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
There’s no pitchfork in the picture.
Unless the pitchfork is hidden ………..
ON HIS HEAD.
Where’s my cow?
IS THAT MY COW?
NO! THAT IS A ROOSTER! THAT IS NOT MY COW!!!
Millennium Hand and Shrimp!
Woof bloody woof.”
trust me, he has a pitch fork, you don;t see it but he has one for sure.
Who drew your avatar?
Cats don’t need rational answers!
Let this be a lesson kids; when debating solve your disagreement not with words but by screaming
I AM A MAN,
and punching them in the guts.
But what if you’re a wolf?
Yes even it you are a ferret you should shout that you are a man, otherwise it doen’t work.
yah cuz if yur ah ferret yur hand’ll just crumple up on der gut……….. unless ur human saized ^.^
If you’re a ferret you scramble up their trouser leg and start nomming.
heh heh…….. eww ;P
I am a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.
Also, he’s BAAAACK!
No, he’s gone again.
Are you signing up for new e-mail accounts just to have more avatars?
he said yes once or twice…
Poor little maroon. So trusting. So naïve.
“why is every one looking at me like that?”
The twist at the end is that the red goat wizard isn’t evil, he’s just a red goat and he’s got a cold he caught coaching little leaguers in the rain. And he’s really a ghost and he doesn’t even know it.
Sounds like you’ve been reading a bit too much mystery-romance.
I watched “The Sixth Sense” twice!
oh? why not 911 times?
I don’t watch many movies.
That totally “not a nefarious villain” wizard is curiously attractive
He’s…….. so badass D:
BUT! it’s often the nice or quite types you have to watch out for…………………………..i love all of you………
rofl! love the pause their before the “no” xD
alt text == WIN
And why is it I just want to deeply intone “WIZARD!” now? *cellphone rings* Oh riiiiiight….
Hes clearly a good wizard with good taste in robes.
If you pull the loose thread on his robe, he’ll unravel completely like the abominable snowman.
I’m thinking about mummies now….. I wonder why.
Well he seems like an honest fellow! Let us turn our back on this polite, sinisterly dressed man and look elsewhere for AAAARGH MY BACK!!! IT BURNS!!! And oddly smells like my lunch. AND BURNS!!!
Irradiated (intentional or not) superheroes tend to be more noticeable in that way.
Remember, it’s important that you never stereotype others. They may surprise you.
Also, here’s your wallet back. There wasn’t anything shiny in it anyways… Don’t Stereotype Me Because I’m A Ferret!
What wallet? This wallet? Who me?
WHY WILL NO ONE LISTEN!? I AM NOT AN EVIL WIZARD/ VILLAIN ALREADY!!!!
Mod Edit-Don’t let me see you guys using it again.
how do you do you do that? I must know the secret of teh internets!
yah ai asked u gize that soooooooooooooooo many taimes but no1 evah told meh
We can’t tell you, Rick will kill us.
but…. then haow did u guiz figure it out, google ?
You must Google it my young Padawans.
Ai will trai master -_-
The magic word is NOT “squeamish ossifrage”.
No, it’s NOT squeamish ossifrage!
ah stonecutter your so funny
Mod Edit-Final warning.
i looked that up on google and it broke my brain
I have to give Peanut credit. Writing a legible “no” by filling in the space around it is not something I expect of amateurs.
If you look at panel 3 of http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/09/06/same-spot-time-same-spot-channel/ then scroll down to comment 44190. You’ll know that Peanut’s been publishing Spot (Superdog) with various comics. There may have been quite a number of turndowns but it just goes to prove he’s not a complete “amateur” anymore.
I don’t read it that way.
It looks like he filled the bubble and then tippexed the “no” in… if that makes any sense
Hmmm, if you look closely you can see his pupils… theyre plain epic.
The pupils move from looking at them to a kid of rolling of the eyes, if my zoom function can be trusted.
i thought it was more like a im-not-going-to-look-at-you-lest -you-look-back-at-me-and- discover-im-evil kind of movement of the eyes
You and your stereotypes. You should be ashamed of yourselves, just because he has horns, wears a red cape and has red skin/fur and talks with a black speech bubble… Oh wait! Did he just turn that guy into a frog? Yeah he’s bad. GET ‘EM! >:U
No he’s not! That frog had been under the “Turn into a guy” curse for years.
Praise the wizard. He saved a frog from the miserable life of being a guy.
What’s the matter with being a guy. Guys invented television!
Can you imagine a frog trying to figure out how to be a human? He’d be eating flies and jumping everywhere and nobody would be able to understand him! It would be horrible!
The Duke of Genua found out just how horrible it was when Lilith did it to him.
@Elwood: Guys also made the interwebs.
@VKB: The question is if the frog gets the intellect of a human cuz if it’s just the frog’s mind in a human body then he wouldn’t be self-conscious(like the dogs who bark at the mirror :p). So he wouldn’t realise anythin.
@Argent: Sorry, I don’ get it. >.<"
@Gaboris: I think Val gets the reference, if he’s read enough Discworld. What happens if he gets the intellect of a very very smart frog?
@Argent: Okay none of my biz, got iz. XD
Hmmm… smart as in cartoon smart? Well then it could be that the apocalypse is upon us. I’m sure he’ll make an evil device to make every human have the mind of a frog. D:
If it’s a REAL smart then he’ll still “jump” under a car tire. XD
We don’t talk about the Frogocalypse.
Comic book conventions: If there’s a wizard convention right when you need it, the nefrarious villain(s) in it will be dressed stereotypically.
DANG ya got me there again Frank. XD
Why can’t I raply anything to that? XP
Pretty slick-looking not-nefarious-villain-person.
I love this red wizard character! Still trying to figure out which species it’s supposed to be, though.
Don’t let it get your goat.
I was kinda assuming something hoofed (hence the reason I REALLY like it), but yeah. That’s about as close as I’d be able to get.
I think its a lama.
Oh wait, horns… Yes, probally a goat.
nono its a lama WITH horns..
you see you can make annnnnyyyy thing if yo put your mind to it!!!
now then… tell me what were talking about cus i have no idea…
its a paradoxataur. (i doubt anyone will get that reference, but you can google it)
If I saw that guy, I’d jus yell “That freakin’ wizard’s a spy!!” and beat him with a bat.
But what if the bat is Bat-bat?
Then he’d be bat-bat-bat.
You sound like a chicken. Do you need a cough drop? Ginger ale? Altoids?
you gotta say it like Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicollaaa!! (?)
No, I’m fine. I just have a lazer stuck in ma throat.
u’konw maehbeh heez realleh not a bad guy after all…. maehbeh heez jus missunderstood…. <strongYEA RIGHT! HEEZ TOTALLEH A BAD GUY! uh ai mean…… isin't de devil hound cute everehbodeh.?
*YEA RIGHT! HEEZ TOTALLEH EVIL!
DE DEVIL HOUNDS ALSO A RED DEVIL HOUND WIZARD EVEREHBODEH.
Umm, guys, hate to break it to you, but the tag says “Nefarious Villains”. As in the plural of Villain. As in MULTIPLE VILLAINS. I bet it’s those guys that were making terrible jokes.
Avatar related, I’ve made a “breakthrough”!!
That was my suspicion as well! You can tell because of the sinister laughter.
Terrible joke is … AWESOME!
at de end tho it says nefarious villian… as in 1.
In the alt text it is plural (“they’ve got to be around here somewhere”).
question: how come there a demon at a wizard convention? someone please explain.
He’s not a demon, he’s a goat. His fur’s just red because it’s a fashion statement.
I’m not sure he’s a goat since all of Peanut’s characters are dogs (Dino Warriors aside). The horns could be accessories, or completely not-villainous implants. The red fur is just a fashion statement though. . .
What about the Moties three armed aliens?
Can’t google a connection to Motics or three armed aliens. . .
(Panel 2, Blue thingy)
That’s K9 Fantastic a tripus!
u can try goin here…. http://lmgtfy.com/
HI AGAIN YOU APPEAR TO BE BAAAAAACK!!!
Never left, just too sleepy (bored) these days to do anything but read and vote.
Oh, and wondering about the dropping rank in TWC, but just bored otherwise.
i shall now disprove redgoat’s nefarious-villainess
redgoat = awesomesauce
awesomesauce = not evil
thereby, through the transitive property of awesomesauciness;
redgoat =not evil
Ah, but Strong Bad also = Awesomesauce, and Strong Bad is the self-proclaimed greatest criminal mind of our time.
Of course, their was that “pretend we’re grannies baking” incident.
*gasp!* That means the red goat is Strong Bad in disguise!
evil? maybe by some stretch of the imagination.
but nefarious? not in the slightest.
Well since there is no villains I guess this means YOU ALL LOST THE GAME!!
I won the game because i play a different version of the game. Yes, to know about the game is to play the game, but no one said I have to use the standard rules. Mwa ha ha ha ha!
Mustelids play a game that involves waiting until other people lose then stealing their socks. Win!
“Hello everybody, and welcome to ‘Fridge Logic with Jim-Jim’!!
Today we wonder why Stripe has to beat up an EVIL WIZARD instead of getting a GOOD wizard to help her? Oh, right, now that she’s the protagonist, she doesn’t question the world’s shaky logic.
I’ll miss lines like “Powerless?! YOU HAVE THE BODY OF ATLAS!!”
I suppose that I, Jim-Jim, shall have to start producing lines like that instead.
I’ll, uh, get right on that. Yeah.
See you next time on… ‘Fridge Logic with Jim-Jim’!!”
The spirit of the staircase is now a superhero.
Aye, but the spirit of the door, wall, window and skylight change sides too often resulting in the high numbers of injuries.
Not to worry, radioactive wastes have multiple half-lives and the superpowers they induce are usually temporary. (About 1M years in most cases)
Okay, I rofld. xD
NO VILLAINS HERE..
it always has to be the black guy, or in this case, the red guy…
Hey, even if red is a villian, is it really fair that, after months of battling good and coming to rest at wizardcon, you get challenged by more heroes?! I mean, comon, you guys use that sorta logic for heroes ALL THE TIME.
DON’T BE HATIN THE VACATIONING VILLIANS!!!
Heh. What nefarious villain with half a brain would come around this convention with our buddy here working security? At least I assume he’s working security- that’s how he knows there are no villains around, of course.
A bad joke, hahaha. And Stripe is amazing in the first panel! And Rick is amazing in every panel!
Actually, I think it would be hilarious if he just goes off on them.
“What kind of Wizardcon do you think we’re running here?! I spend my entire day fending off nefarious wizards of all alignments from Lawful Evil to Chaotic and back, get paid a PITTANCE for it, and then you rush in and break the window, which is gonna come out of MY paycheck, by the way, looking for the guys I fight off and redirect all freaking day!!
“Alright, as sick as I am of saying this… ‘Please try the Evil Wizard Convention at the Mall on 12th Avenue, as I feel it would suit your personality and needs better than our General-Wizardcon will. Please have a nice day and try not to eat the kittens on your way out, as they are protected by traps of various magnitudes. Have a nice day!’
That’s probably the best answer anyone is going to give, lest they be beaten soundly AND have their schemes ruined. Also, I lol’d at the last panel. Nice!
And he has inverted bubbles like someone else we know…
But that doesn’t mean anything because Peanut doesn’t know him.
But he could’ve implanted the idea into Peanut’s mind…
But does Pete even know what color his talk bubbles are? That would be breaking the fourth wall!
the bad guy looks like a teostra from Monster Hunter
And with that, my adventure through the archive is completed… 6. Hours. Later.
I feel your pain,
i know not all evil guys are red, but how many red guys aren’t evil?
i know alot of very nice purple people and some nice magenta people but all the red ones have been evil.. nice.. but pure evil
I get the feeling that there’s an invisible villain next to the not-villain… anyone agree?
…and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain,and behind the invisible villain there is a invisible villain.
whats behind him?
I think that may be where the trail ends. I don’t see anyone else.
The saying goes “Good is dumb”. Heroes must have selective dumbness. Or something.
Apparently being smart just doesn’t adequately benefit them at this time. It’s like making up physics… real ‘chicken and egg’ kind of stuff.
