      You can tell Grape is really loving it by how she’s squeezing the life out of that arm rest.

      That poor couch.

      • Frank

        The arm rest is alive?

        • FrostDemn

          Not any more.

          • Gaboris

            His/her/it’s softness may never be forgotten. :D

          • Lupus

            This is getting out of hand. Someone needs to tell Rick to stop. If this webcomic gets any cuter, readers around the world will start turning into kittens.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            or fewwets ;)

          • Rahiros

            @ Lupus
            Didn’t you know?? That’s Rick’s plan for World Domination!

          • ZincChloride

            But where will Rick get all the balls of yarn to prevent a coup?!

          • Lupus

            Maybe he plans to work his way to the top of the yarn industry while people start turning into kittens…

    Panel 2: Peanut is not amused.

    • gagi

      what do you mean … he look absolutely thrilled

    • MagicalSarai

      His face in Panel 2 and grape in panel 4 totally gave my mind an overload of cute!

  5. Enty

    I sense ship-teasing! :D

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      But they are brother and sister…well sort-of.

      • Enty

        Seems you have not been keeping in touch with the forums :D Brother and sister or not, it’s still definitely a ship tease.

      • Enty

        Seems you have not been keeping in touch with the forums :D Brother and sister or not, it’s still definitely a ship tease. (and the brother sister point is still debatable)

        • Enty

          Excuse that minor malfunction

          • Trefoiler

            Fine by me, conjunction junction!

            Sorry. Comes out sometimes.

        • Gaboris

          I’d say that only counts when they’re blood connected. :)

          • Arinot

            Well… If you had an adoptive sister/brother, and developed a crush on said adopted sibling

            would you not find that odd?

          • Gaboris

            Point there, but one of my friends had exactly the same thing goin on with his step sis, sooo… (Must add that he’s into that stuff.)XD

  6. Silverpaws

    seems like some one is loving it more and more hehehe

        I smell……. HERESY *Chainsworded*

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Space Wolves. There.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            wut about space wolves :? ?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            They are wolves in space.

            It’s a Warhammer 40k reference. He attempted to chainsword my Internet friend, so I sent the Space Wolves to berseker rage.

            On a different note: Astropath Rave Party. Yes? No?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh I forgot to put that they are not ACTUALLY wolves in space, for anybody who doesn’t know 40k.

            They’re genetically modified humans, one of the Space Marine Chapters.

          • Loki Impisi

            More like viking berserkers in space.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Wolf wolf Fenris wolf wolf wolf FOR RUSS AND THE ALLFATHER!!!!

  8. EchoFireant

    fully agree with the alt-text bout the history channel

    Also one of the cutest strip ever made :D

  9. Enty

    PS let’s play a game! Everytime you see a “d’awww”, “aww”, “cute” or anything along those lines in the comments, take a drink! (of orange juice, of course)

    • Silverpaws

      OMG where did your dysplay came from??!?!?!

      • Enty

        Photoshop, mein Freund :D (actually GIMP but same thing)

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Mah sis and Ah also use GIMP, nya! ;p
          Ubuntu 4 EVAH, minya! ~^w^~

          Or as mah sis allwais sez: “Wewease the gimp!” “^w^

          • Gaboris

            Yeah the GIMP is the best after PS… although it’s WAY smaller and faster. X)
            Lemme not say my opinion aboot Linux, but it’s cool if you guys like it. ;3

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Lol, Ubuntu iz a Linux clone, nya! ;p
            And my opinion aboot Ubuntu iz, tha it’s supportid by a lot moar programmers then Linux, nya! =3
            So iz allot moar cozy-comfy then Linux, nya! =3
            But Ah also use Windows Vista Expert Ed. fur multimedia puposses, like Gamez, DVD’s and muzic, nya! ;p

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Ubuntu isn’t a “linux clone”. It’s Linux. Debian, to be precise.

          • DavisonInc

            Well actually, Ubuntu is a distribution (Or “Distro”) of Linux. Linux itself is just a core if you will, of all the distro’s. For eg, there’s Fedora, an enterprise oriented release, Ubuntu which is aimed towards home users and the distro I use, called CentOS which is widely regarded as the best for web servers.

            If one were to simply dowload the linux core, you’d end up with a very lonely OS (if it was even able to boot) on your computer.

            Sorry, I just had to correct you, your comment instilled a silent anger in my nerd reflex.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Dude, I installed Slackware 0.something from floppies.

            Nerd rage about whether you call the whole OS “Linux”, “GNU/Linux”, “The GNU/Linux/BSD System”, or “The OS formerly known as Freax”? Spare me.

            Ubuntu is Linux. Linux is UNIX. And, as an aside, SCO can burn in heck.

          • DavisonInc

            Argent, your comment is rather hostile, which I feel was uncalled for since mine was meant in the nicest of ways.

            But it’s ok, I accept your apology in advance.

          • Gaboris

            It’s okay guys don’ get all worked up on this matter. Yes Ubuntu is a “version” of Linux witch is based on UNIX. Yes it’s more usable for the normal users then other Linux “versions”, but although they have more potential in them than windows, but are still not as supported as windows.
            That’s all folks. :)

        We’ve “OMG”ed it before. He put 2 and 2 together from this strip: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/06/08/no-excuses/

      • Jrogenshin

        I just asked that! XD

    • Enty

      At the time of writing we’re already at 5

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      “Hit me.”
      “Are you sure? You’ve been hittin’ the juice pretty hard…”
      “I said, hit me.”

      • dalonewolf25

        masochist, much?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Only when it comes to orange juice.

          • Manix

            pfft you take orange juice, I take orange CRUSH

    • The Wolf Kin

      Can my drink me a cup of cereal?

      • Enty

        Yes of course. (6 of ‘em now)

        • The Wolf Kin

          Eh, I preemptively drank a giant glass of cereal, so i should be good for the night.

          I still need to get the hang of the Gravatar site. Maybe I will learn eventually, over time, by commenting more.

      • Argent Stonecutter

    • Jrogenshin

      Which page did Peanut lick grape? o.O

      • Gaboris

        Read up the comments, but it’s a clipped together pic. :3

        • Spiritwolf15

          And one of the better ones at that.

          • Gaboris

            Never said it’s not good. ;)

    • SamBlob

      Orange soda, perhaps? xD

      • Enty

        I’m starting to see how you can get drunk off of orange soda now… xD I can’t even ount the d’awws….

      • Enty

        PS this :D

  10. IceKitsune

    This update rocks in two way one the dialogue in the strip is very true and Peanut & Grape snuggling is just super D’awwww

    • Valerio

      this update is most awesome EVER throughout these years. :D

  11. Kingisawsome

    How sweet

    • tjprower

      Says Fox with a popcicle stick. XP

  12. The Wolf Kin

    How can this be responded to with anything other then D’AAAAAWWWWWW!

    I never do watch the History Channel, preferring Discovery Channel (and Mythbusters), as well as Animal Planet (It’s animal planet, how can it not be loved?)

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      The discovery channel can be pretty hilarious.

      Did you see their TWO HOUR special on the whole “OMG WORLD ENDS ON 2012!!” thing? The narrator spent the entire time talking about how we’re all going to die, while the interviewees gave well thought out, fact-based, rational arguments that pretty well said that there is no way that the world is going to end then. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

      I think it’s hilarious that people think the world is going to end because of some ancient calendar. I’m sure the Mayans would apologise for not making another one, if they were still around as a race instead of scattered remnants.

      And wow, “renewal” does not equal “destruction”.

      Um. That was long and off topic. It’s late,

      • dalonewolf25

        but it’s a true topic!

      • Enty

        It’s not the end of the world, it’s the end of an era. This era is the one the Mayans called “deep night,” where human conflict is raging and the world is at war. 2012 is supposed to be the year we start fixing everything. Not sure what that entails but that sounds good to me, I hope they were right.

        Still off topic, so I’mma say “d’awww” to bring it back on topic

        • Frank

          So that’s when green energy will finally catch on? Or when talking pets start appearing in the real world? :P

          • Enty

            How about the year Obama leaves office? (I don’t mind the guy the joke just works xD)

        • Hypergenesis

          Funny thing about 2012 is that according to the Mayan Calendar (Yes, the same one cospiracists [Is that a word?] use to call for the end of the world). That is the year when the cycle of the world enters the renewal stage (Age of Prosperity). The end of the Mayan Calendar was just the signal that the cycle has restarted (Yes I’m one of those conspiracist against the conspiracists).

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I wanna see a no-hold-barred grudge match between the Mayan apocralypse and the Kali Yuga, in a pit of flaming mud.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            mud can cach on fiyah :D

          • Enty

            What of orguna the forsaken? :)

        • NobodyYouKnow

          you just made me think about somfin. 2012 will be a presidential election year (here in america) i don’t know why i would point this out, but we’re already of topic anyway.

      • Chip Uni

        Besides, everyone knows that the world will really end on May 21, 2011.

        (If you don’t get the reference, be very grateful.)

        • dalonewolf25

          may i know this reference? else, sniper kitty will shoot at ease.

          • Frank
          • Sparks

            You’re telling me that the world will end JUST AFTER I turn 20? (May 20th) wow, that really sucks

          • Frank

            Ah, so you favor the 2012 theory just so you can be the Legal Gambling Age in the afterlife?

          • NobodyYouKnow

            *shakes head* shameless!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Don’t be silly, the world ended in 1997, 6000 years after it was created. Any evidence you see to the contrary is fraudulent.

      • Thoth

        Why would the Mayan’s need another calander? Theirs just reaches the end of a great cycle, it doesn’t end.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          maybe they needed a swimsuit addition XP

      • The Wolf Kin

        Actually, I missed it. School got in the way.

      That’s weird cuz the other day I was telling Some guy (not you) in a chat room that generic pop-tarts taste like diabetes.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

    Oops, this situation requires an avatar to be formed. And here it is. First attempt at using Gravatar too, yay!

    • The Wolf Kin

      Oops, my mistake, this should be it.

      • Frank

        Kind’a makes me wonder what you had before

        • The Wolf Kin

          Kind of grainy image of a wolf head over a green, forest like backdrop. Brought it over from Deviantart, because I hadn’t yet made an avatar from the strip’s material.

  15. AmericanOtter


    What is sad is at times the History Channel would have a good series Like… Battle 360 Focused on the Enterprise… burried in all this…. tripe.

    What is fasinating is History Channel is good for future historians, so they can shift through the not so good stuff or even the terrible stuff, to find the good kernals of awesome shows!

    But that is just me…. and that shows how much of a historian I am, I totally didn’t see what Peanut and Grape were doing till the third read through… yeah…. I think Grape is just loving Peanut’s reactions to the History channel… or the I…. I’m Sorry from the announcer.

    ((History Channel use to be more good then bad shows. No clue what happened.))

    • Rocket Knight boy

      who knows………..it’s all…history now! hehe………where’d you get that hunting rifle?

  17. Val Kilmer Batman


    I am crying manly tears of D’AWWWWWWW.

  18. Hopper2004

    Best strip ever!
    So cute!

    • Valerio

      The gods of cute have blessed us.
      The Sacred Order of Shippers is pleased :D

  19. lightwolf21

    Someone better get the crash cart ready for when Valerio sees this. He might just have a fatal happiness overdose.

    • Valerio

      TOO LATE
      oooo, so this is how HEAVEN looks like. All cuddly and sweet.

      • IceKitsune

        lol that was my reaction to Valerio. Also it quickly became the same as lightwolf’s shortly after.

      • Trefoiler

        We’re losing him people!! Get him up there– one, two,


        Okay, start him on 20 minutes Star Wars Holiday Special while we fit the red filters on the windows! Ice, can you record yourself making a low, crackling, growling noise and replay it on an infinite loop? AND WHY HASN’T ANYBODY TURNED UP THE THERMOSTAT? It’s tolerable in here! Get it together, people, I am not going to lose another one!

        It’s alright, Valerio, we’re here to help you. Just stay with us, now. Just stay with us, and try to focus on the screen behind me. Do you like Star Wars? Yes? Well, if you do, this treatment will take a little longer to kick in, but is going to be a lot more affective in the long run…

        • Valerio


          • Naylorfan90

            Dear Lord, have some mercy on the poor man! No one deserves the Star Wars Holiday special!!!

          • Valerio

            *sniff* thank you, Naylorfan
            Not even a Max+Grape shipper deserves such a punishment…

          • Trefoiler

            Desperate times call for desperate measures!

            And anyway, your alarm means it’s working exceptionally well. I’ll have the nurses bump your dosage down to 5 minutes every two hours, just to be sure, but I’m pretty sure we’re off the rough now.

            My job is done, but I think I’m going to prescribe you some daily inconveniences to prevent relapse. It’s okay; they’re chewable.

          • Enty

            Don’t forget to prepare the medicine right! Remember, Stir, whip, stir, whip, whip, whip, stir!

          • NobodyYouKnow

            by “naylorfan” do you mean jay naylor? (i got some avatars from original life, see?)

          • notthatlol

            Holiday Special…?


          • Leinad

            you don’t want to know. trust me.

  20. xhunterko

    @some guy: … I see what your trying to do there, guess what?


    And more over, I for one think that assumption is completely unfounded. Especially considering the history. Speaking of, the history channel was one of my favourites when we still had DirectTv. The hitler story doesn’t sound that too far off sadly.

  21. ReCreate


    I also don’t get the joke. >.>

    • Frank

      It’s called rapidfiring. Each sentence is basically it’s own self-contained joke. By themselves, they’re not supposed to be that funny, but the succession of them is, shall we say, pure win. This is topped off with our favorite characters’ reactions.

    • Sleet

      The joke is that the History Channel is dumb.

      • IceKitsune

        More like it has become dumb Sleet I remember a time when it was actually good.

  22. Fuzzypaws

    So adorable. <3 And unfortunately this is why I stopped watching TV, because really it was down to Food Network, History, Sci Fi, and Cartoon Network, and all but the first went downhill.

    • Teh Brawler

      I would love to have a conversation with you on this if you would GET ON THE FORUMS AGAIN

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      This is why I only watch OnDemand. “SyFy” has Warehouse 13 and Haven. And that’s about it until I can get some more Dr. Who.

      • The Wolf Kin

        See, us Canadians get ‘Space’ instead of ‘SciFi’, and in lieu of there being no new episodes, are airing the seasons 1-4 of the revived series once every night, usually. Quite enjoyable, actually. Gives us at least some Who to watch in the off season.

      • Corodan

        See, I’m mildly miffed they named it SyFy.

        What the heck, man.

    • dalonewolf25

      What did they do to the good shows? At least history channel shows WWII and military weaponry throughout the ages..and i don’t think sci-fi (sy-fy) was ever that good. CN had great cartoons, but then they went downhill because some of them retired and others were cancelled due to lawsuits, etc.

    • Inu225

      Hey why do they call “Cartoon Network” CARTOON Network when now they show shows that aren’t even “cartoon”? The last time I went to that channel they had this CN real thing with real people instead of cartoons?
      So if “Cartoon Network” isn’t really about “cartoons” then what do you call it?

      • Reynard Gearhead

        Not much different than MTV still calling itself “MTV” despite the fact that the “M” at least *used to* stand for “music”. It started off great, then they began playing garbage, then no music whatsoever.
        The History Channel is also going off on tangents, like so many other cable channels. What in the world does “Ice Road Truckers” have to do with history and how does having a camera in a big rig with some whiny idiot equal interesting television? And to think, Time Warner continues to solicit me with “great offers” for the crap they air. No sir, not buying into it.
        Great strip, Rick! It is all too true!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          MTV turned into VH1, dontcha know?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            duh!! every 1 nose dat

          • Frank

            What about us unnumbered noses?

          • ReynardGearhead

            LOL! I guess that’s what I get for not watching those channels anymore. *blushes* The only cable TV I watch is when I’m at someone else’s place and they have it on. I find the Internet to be much more interesting. In fact, my TV is my computer’s monitor and that’s all it’s used for.

  23. Batz.

    Ah, and the world is all happyness and fun, up untill the point Peanut has had enough sleep and interrupts her catnap.

  24. Val Kilmer Batman

    Alright. One last D’aww and then I bid thee goodnight.


  25. falcon01

    awwww! yet another cuteness overdose! Panel 4 is so cute it stings!

  26. Inu

    I’m still trying to figure out what startled Grape so much her tail shot up.
    Also: D’awwwwwwww

    • Batz.

      I think she was lying on the other end off the couch first. but that’s just mine thought :)

    • Sleet

      I think she just noticed when she woke up that Peanut was resting his head on hers.

      And evidently she likes it. :3

      • Trefoiler

        Now, THAT I can D’aww at!


        you know..

  29. Oren Otter

    Well, to be technical, angels ARE aliens…

    But yeah… this is pretty true to the actual History Chanel.

    • Valerio

      Angels are cuddly, sweet pets doing heartwarming things on a couch :D

      • notthatlol

        “Heartwarming Things”


        That, like, could’ve been worded better.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      In defense of the History Channel “Modern Marvels” is still great, “Ice Road Truckers” is actually really good and “Pawn Stars” is surprisingly almost completely oriented towards be a history-themed program (think Antiques Roadshow with attitude).

      However minus those three and the occasional historical-themed program clearly designed to tie into a new movie release yeah there is far too much of the crazy fanastic creatures, bibical end of the world and conspiracy theory stuff on the channel.

      • FireRyder

        Universe is actually pretty good because it helped me win a couple of arguments

    • Frank

      Heh. This just made me think:
      “And the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, where he found a Roman soldier requesting him his papers and, because he had left his passport behind, was unable to deliver the message to the virgin. And God said to the angel, ‘I am not pleased…’

      • Trefoiler

        That would mean Mary had absolutely no excuse… uh oh.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Would you believe it if YOUR daughter fed you that story?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Angel is a word meaning “messenger”.

  30. Deja-Rayne

    that is adorable…<3's it!

    • Frank

      Does this count as a “D’aww”, enty?

      • Enty

        I say so! :D

  31. Sharks

    Yup, this is definitely a D’Awww moment! Funny thing is, I’d probably watch those shows just for the heck of it… Some of them sound funny XD.

    • Trefoiler

      While it doesn’t happen as often as I like, I find that it is not any sort of comedy that makes me laugh the hardest. :D

      Normally, I’d place credit where credit is due, but the rating ties my hands this time. This time.

  32. dalonewolf25

    Cute. That is all.

    • Leinad

      how do you do that!?

      • dalonewolf25

        A little big birdie has been giving me hints that I should not tell. Let’s stay that way.

  33. Frank

    You guys are spoiled by cable TV. Go PBS!

    • dalonewolf25

      Back then, that was the ONLY cartoon channel only available in any non-cable-tv cable.

      • dalonewolf25

        AKA antenna cable, with WB kids as the exception.

      • Frank

        Back when what?

        Also, why does your “only” have a dashed underlining?

    • Trefoiler

      The first time I noticed Peanut’s signature in his comics (“PBS”) this was the first thing to come to mind. Oh, but I do harbor fond memories of a simpler time, when my television didn’t allot me dozens of channels to watch, and my options were few.

      Also, I think Dalone may mean the same thing. Back before the household upgraded to basic cable.

  34. Inu225

    I’m sorry but when something popular in the media comes out like “The Davinci Code”, History Channel loves to exploit its popularity by creating historical segments relating to the subject matter. Because there is some historical value in things like “Pirates of the Caribbean” or “2012″.
    I recall a time after “300″ came out in theaters, History Channel had a segment dedicated to spartan soldiers because nothing says “This is SPARTA!” than a movie with violence and *cough* history *cough* all in one.

  35. DoctorEevee

    Grape x Peanut ftw \o/

    • Sleet

      Grape & Peanut.

      X has some unfortunate implications behind it.

      • DoctorEevee

        oh…. Well i didn’t mean it in a ‘mature’ way o.o;; i just mean i like that pairing…

  36. pet_panda

    too much d’awwww-ing

    *walks up to the crowd and does a rabid scream* DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!

  37. SnowFox102

    The History Channel can’t be as bad as Animal Planet, where they show marathons of shows about people, with no animals in sight anywhere. It can’t be that bad, right?…right? o.o

  38. Radio Viewer

    . . .

    Am I a bad person if I don’t go d’aww over this?

    • Frank

      “Father forgive me, for I have sinned. I didn’t d’aww over Friday’s Housepets! strip”
      “What?!? Repent, sinner repent! And don’t come back until you’ve done a bazillion ‘Hail Mary’s! ”

      ¬_¬ Maybe I should just get to bed.

      • Hypergenesis

        Good thing I don’t have a religion. . .

        Hail mary. . Hail mary. .

        • NobodyYouKnow

          ssshhhhh! you might offend…

          • NobodyYouKnow

            it makes me sad how bad i fail… D-’X>

      • Radio Viewer

        Haha wow

    • Valerio

      no, you are not bad.
      you only have proved you lack an immortal soul and are devoid of feelings

    • Trefoiler

      We all D’aww differently, friend. Me, I like to take my single D’aww, and distribute it among several positively reinforcing words in a sentence of questionable structure, but a sentence nonetheless.

      Also, you don’t feel like D’awwing. That’s fine; the comments are flush with D’awws, but what did you think about the comic?

      • Valerio

        The comic is D’aaaawwwww.
        What else?

      • Radio Viewer

        I think that the history channel part is funny.

        I don’t know how to react to the cuteness though…

    • Pax

      Go stand in the corner until you feel the love tonight. DO IT, FOOL! *Sprits you with spray gun*

  39. namelessone

    Now sure whether I appriciated the awwwww scene or the hilarious and true parody of the history channel more.

  40. Chaos Lightspeed

    Sorry if this was already mentioned. But Grape DID mention a while back when Peanut found out that she knew he liked her, that she guessed he had earned the right for Snuggles and such. can’t remember the comic, but all in all I agree with those above me who have said the following statement.


  41. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    D’aaaaaaaaaaawwwww wuv me X3

  47. Kitch

    Oh the shipping! <3

    And this is exactly how I feel about The History Channel. It's become "all conspiracy theories, all the time"! But you forgot one thing: plenty of "alien astronaut theory". xD

    • Kitch

      Or maybe you didn’t forget it. Nevermind. :3

    • Nohbody

      You forgot about what it does the rest of the time, as The Hitler Channel. :P

  48. Eric

    That is EXACTLY how the History Channel is! That’s so funny! XD

  49. Gamerkitty

    ah yes, the History Channel along with some snuggles, whats not to love?

  50. BigHate

    How sweet. This update will keep us GrapexPeanut fans happy for the next month.

    • Pax

      True dat!

  51. Trefoiler

    Adorable! And Witty! As always!

    I don’t watch TV quite as much as I used to, and lately there’s only a handful of programming that will hold my attention. But sometimes- and that is to say on the very rare, almost surreal occasion- the television will be on, and I will happen to be in the same room, and it will be tuned to a certain documentary, or talk show, or reality show and I have to stop what I’m doing. I literally have to cease all other activity and use my entire body to stare in wonder…
    … at how silly it is. Heh.

    Oh! Hope you had a wonderful 24th, Rick. Here’s to at least a few more fruitful years in the buffer.

    • Indagare

      And welcome back to commenting! I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen if you and Thoth start theorizing. *blushes*

      I have a low tolerance for most shows anymore. I’m very tired of ‘reality tv’ and don’t like dramas much (I can get both on my own, thanks).

      My mom likes watching things about angels and demons but I find it silly to be on a channel called ‘the history channel’.

  52. SIF

    Wait! You forgot the show, “Focus on bad stuff the Catholic Church did for 60 Minutes!” It’s their most frequently played program.

    • Frank

      They focus on it for 60 minutes? Or is it things the Church miraculously fixed after 60 minutes?

  53. Hypergenesis

    Peanut’s hair sure is growing fast. .

    wonder how it will over his face once he takes a bath. . .

  54. Xuncu


    Also, yeah, it’s annoying as hell how the History channel has become bloated with Psudoscience. Like 5 shows a day that start with the presuption that the Abrahamic religions are correct.

  55. TzarBomba

    History Channel is a great channel! “Ice Road Truckers” and “Pawn Stars” can suck my balls but “Hitler’s Super Weapons” and all their WW2 documentaries are great, though “dog fights” can stop making it look like USA never lost an air fight in history! :)

    • Trefoiler

      It would be nice. Then, most (or at least many?) people who are bested in aerial combat are awful hard to interview. What with the deadness and all.

      The rest are, of course, wins and close-calls. So balance is hard to find.

      Unless they interview other wartime powers as well? I haven’t watched an episode for a while, so I don’t remember.

  56. gagi

    Don’t know why, but all the strips with a TV tag just look so adorable.

  57. Corodan

    Wouldn’t surprise me if, on closer inspection, the armrest has claw marks.

    Because that’s a happy stretch she be givin’, lad!

    It’s also irresistibly cute, and the only time I ever really went “D’aw” out loud. Besides other actual cute stuff IRL. And, y’know, not internet stuff. Blah.

    Shoot son, it’s cute.

  58. Rocket Knight boy

    ok thats just disgustingly cute (in a good way)

  59. Rocket Knight boy

    monster trucks men…monster trucks grrr!!…………………men?

  60. yarrofox

    yup… I’ve seen that before. Plus the nostradamus efect that comes on every week and still doesn’t make sense to me.

  61. Mr.Zero

    Now imagine if Max came in and saw them. Boy, that would be awkward!

  62. Nia

    Well could have been worse, they could have been watchin’ Deadliest Warrior….

    An d’awwwww…At the cute romance moment X3

    • Naylorfan90

      I thought Deadliest Warrior was on Spike: Entertainment for Men?

      • Trefoiler

        You know- seems to me it could see airtime on both networks. Actually a rather balanced show…

  63. WingedWolfGirl

    Every Word Is True!
    *Falls over*

  64. The Wolf Next Door

    Oh just become a couple already ^w^

    • Frank

      Become a couple of whats? :P

      • NobodyYouKnow

        your humor is pretty darn predictable, you know that?

      • The Wolf Next Door

        a couple of pants that’ll fit no matter how you look ;3

    • Silver Dragon ordinence


      come on people does no one else feel like D’AAAWing?

    So cute,…

  67. KennyT

    Lovely as always. Reminds me of my cat and dog…including the watching TV thing…

  68. Cam

    I’ve actually watched that show about aliens and angels…

    It sucked.

  69. RockstarRaccoon

    Find it funny that this is better read as two strips, one all text and heads, the other with no text. (as in, I scrolled down so the text was off the screen)

    The one without text is <3.

  70. 8feet

    Son of a zombie Darn it I can’t keep my self shut anymore–D’AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

  71. T-Squared

    Awww! Why does Grape look so… I dunno how to describe it. XD I think … “innocent” in the last panel? :D

  72. FerreTrip

    I had to get to the comments to realize that Grape’s doing that because of Peanut, not because of the History Channel. I’m THAT slow.

    That said, D’AAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! ^_^

  73. sonic id furreh!!!

    ai think de cuteness uv dis strip just broke mai brain :)

  74. Desmont

    Am I the only one here that thinks we should demand a wallpaper of the last panel?

    • Ajax451

      No…you are not…

    • thewhitedragon

      no.. Id love to get one as well

  75. bright

    I stopped watching the History channel after I realized that it’s always like that..(I gave it a try for a few times)

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      wut :? ?

    • Trefoiler

      I would refer you to my comment above. Once the patterns emerge, you slowly realize that for such an intelligent premise… it really is an inane use of one’s time.

      Still, you let it blow over and you try again. You know. Maybe during a different time frame, so you’re more likely to see something better than last time. You know, because they have to get something right.

      Because its such an intelligent premise.

  76. The_Captain1228

    I think grapes a pretty cool guy eh hugs the couch to death and doesnt afraid of anything

  77. anthroguy101

    Then there’s Pawn Stars and American Pickers, which is only mildly entertaining.

  78. hoit21

    Dang cute out the Ying Yang here huh?

  79. CalaverX11

    If I had any teeth left, they would rot.

    Consequently, I lost them by viewing way too much cute crap like this in my life. Food is nothing compared to the power of D’AAWWWWW.

  80. Enty

    Holy carp…. thats 51 I’ve counted (then again I included “adorable”s and the such)

    • Enty

      add the one that came up as I wrote that XD

  81. Cooljoe224

    The History channel is awesome! Have you ever seen Modern Marvles?

  82. shyannethefox

    I must say this so sooo adorable! :)

  83. thewhitedragon

    rick, can you do this as a wallpaper with no text ballons? its adorable!!!

    • Valerio


    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Ah second tha notion,
      Let’z make a commotion!
      Wut a happy caper,
      Fur a cyoot wallpaper, nya! X3

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        thirded… :D

  84. FireRYder

    I don’t say this much but…cute

  85. Lax

    Haha, you should be selling postcards with pics like that, it’d be a hit! :) Another great strip

  86. JAKJ

    By the way, I feel the urge to say–in case anyone is too thick to actually get what’s going on here–Grape is bubbling with happiness because Peanut would rather 1) keep snuggling, and 2) not disturb her, and is willing to put up with hours of horror to do it. Panel 2 shows that Peanut indeed is not enjoying what is on the tele, and the dialogue from the announcer illustrates -just- how bad it’s going to get, and still he’s not disturbing her.

    Also, d’aww.

  87. Ookami Raito

    Omigawd love moment :D
    D’AWWWWWWW Manditory!

  88. iHavezMyBirdo

    Didn’t expect that.

  89. Kurra

    I’d be perfectly happy without the dialogue. :3 Peanut and Grape are so lucky… ‘cuz of each other.
    Still wish I had somthin’ like that.

    • Frank

      Scroll it right to where the speech bubbles disappear off-screen. If you need something for what they’re watching, play a muted trombone

  90. Hoheh

    Peanut and Grape cutely napping as THC tries to make something interesting out of nothing. This page is awesome.

  91. Blackgatomon

    Peanut x Grape!!! YES!!!
    YEEEEES! |,,|, (>_<) ,|,,|

  92. RennisTora

    Aww, we needed some good old cuddles again~

  93. Spiritwolf15

    After seeing this update I broke out in the first spontaneous “Awwww” I’ve had for quite some time.

    Keep up the great work Rick.

  94. darkgloomie

    you guys get the history channel, and in Italy all I have is Voyager… which, according to your comments is pretty much the same thing…

    I probably should tune in on the history-themed channel sometimes…

    Also, this is the cutest little thing ever. Even if I don’t really ship Grape/Peanut

  95. Firewolf

    The only thing I think you missed was the “We’re going to find the world largest treasure!…oh wait…nvrmnd.” =3

    I’m missing something in the 4th panel. Why is Grape all ~<3 ?

    • Firewolf

      Ooh, cuddles?

  96. Tommy

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww thats so cute. they truly love each other. like bro and sis

  97. e

    do to the look on his face, Peanut might not like the history channel.

    • lost wolf

      I would belive so and awwwwwwwww… i could not help my self….

  98. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    Hey… This reminds meh of me and Rosy’s step sis Esti, nya! O.o

  100. lionboy55555

    Rick Griffon, what have you done?
    now i will be stuck wondering, possibly for years, if peanut and grape might ever go out!
    gah! the mystery is almost painful to bear!

  101. Mr Valentine

    I think grape has a thing for peanut but cant admit it cus shes a cat

  102. Argent Stonecutter

    This is basically the opposite of the “Graaaaaaaaape” strip.

  103. Medli

    D´awww the cuteness! x3
    So, your history channel is taking “hitlers dark rituals” as a serious topic too?^^

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Read “The Atrocity Archives” by Charlie Stross. Best take on Hitler’s Occult Rituals ever.

  104. ColonelLuxray

    Man I really need to start commenting here. I love this comic.

    And the Linux vs Ubuntu debate made me lol.

  105. Profesor Rod

    Yeah. That’s history channel for you :B

    Also, D’aaaawwwwww~ This is very mushy |3

  106. GeminiDragon

    OK, so this is sweet…but is this a tease? I mean is there going to be something going on between them than the “just friends” thing?
    Is Maxwell going to be in the picture forever? Or the dragon that is disguised as a dog?

    I mean it would be nice to see them as a true couple.

    • Mr Valentine

      It could happen but, it might be one of those scenerios where it takes longer to develope,

  107. MagnusWolfie

    I luv peanut’s seriousface

  108. Rendak

    D’awww, This brightened up my rather lousy day :D
    Hooray for Peanut and Grape

  109. Argent Stonecutter

    So… tomorrow, new arc? Any guesses anyone?

    • Hypergenesis

      I’m thinking another one-off.

    • Frank

      With the Theme Park World arc, we got to see practically everybody. I’m betting on the woodland critters and Joey’s creepy friends.

  110. shyannethefox

    The sad part is I’ve watched most of these shows. You forgot MonsterQuest and UFO Hunters tho!

  111. Billy MT

    You guys are overlooking two facts:

    - The angry-mannered ones (Grape) always hide their crushes under seven locks. See the farm section again ;3
    - They’re stepbrothers, if you think about it ~

    • Hypergenesis

      With pets, even direct siblings makes no difference.

    • James

      Don’t you mean “step-siblings”? “Brothers” are only gender-directed, if they are both boys, it would make sense.

      This would be confusing if you have a language that has the rule “Brothers” as the same meaning as “Siblings” (Spanish for example).

    41 “d’awww”s/ “awww”s total
    and quite a few gray ones

      And 7 cans of orange soda (I estimate each can at 10 or so drinks, cuz I take big ones)

    It’s so good for them to stick together, gives me a warm feeling… and makes my day
    Anyway, what I really came here for is to ask the author (what’s his name again?) to do a wallpaper with this – pretty pretty please??
