    Didn’t you know? DISNEY OWNS YOUR SOUL!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAA!

    • Guardian Infinity

      We must REBEL!

      • FoxBlood

        Never gonna happen. Not as long Mikey and multimillions of dollars in jobs still stand in the way.

        • Hypergenesis

          Now’s a good time to tip PETA off that Mickey Mouse is in fact a mouse being worked by the film corporation.

          • Valerio

            I dunno…working for Disney seem enough of a punishment already…

          • sonic id furreh!!!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            a rat (reference to gravvy

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Disney hasn’t been the same since Tad Stones left the Disney Afternoon.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            agreed -_-

          • Skykitsune

            NOOOOO! Not Disney! Aaaargh!

  2. PrivateElliot

    Joey looks, strange viewed at that angle.

    • Hypergenesis

      I agree, he looks. . . aged, somewhat. .

    • Valerio

      it’s his ears. They are big enough to be used as parachutes!

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        u meen laike dumbo de elefant :D ?

  3. xhunterko

    Kudos to whoever guessed it be joey and his friends. Good thing it was just a preview.
    shudders

    • Lupus

      The scary thing is, Joey seems rather sane compared to his friend in this strip..




      …I’m scared… 3:

      • Frank

        That’s why he used to be called Joey’s creepy friend

    • Frank

      Me! Me! What did I win?

  4. SamBlob

    Not a one-off; a new arc! Uh-oh…

    New character too! Lester… wonder if he’ll get around to playing guitar with another character named Chester?

  5. TheBrigeedaRocks

    Lester doubled “have” in that first panel there.

    • lightwolf21

      Rick’s been informed.

    • Frank

      But you just have to have two halves!

      …wait…

  6. IceKitsune

    Yay Joey arc! also lol Lester is mad at the previews

  7. PrivateElliot

    In fact, Joey looks completely different.
    Another Style change?

    • Pseudo Faux

      I think its the jaw… look in past comics joey’s jaw line is more rounded.

    • xhunterko

      Or perhaps we haven’t seen Lester in this style before. Did he appear before the style change or after? And probably it’s a closer up view as well.

    • ndigit

      I think it’s the eyes; they seem larger then before

      • pet_panda

        they’re anime fans, they probly have those eye widening contacts in

    • Rick Griffin

      Or maybe today was rushed since I had a D&D game and it got a little off-model

      • Argent Stonecutter

        There you go stomping on people’s exotic theories again. Tut tut.

        • Valerio

          that’s Rick-Daddy for you! Tu-tuummm!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai thot it wuz “Rick the all mighty overlord” :?

      • Hypergenesis

        Rick’s the Great Kitsune’s Avatar!

        *teleports to beautiful Place*

        Cripe. . .

    • Hypergenesis

      Panel 3 Joey reminds me of Jim Carey, who knows why. .

      • Frank

        OMG, it does! You’ve just increased my enjoyment of today’s strip two-fold!
        *LOLs and gets stared at by those around him in RL*

  8. PrivateElliot

    Even though most likey I’ll be wrong.

  9. lightwolf21

    The eyes on Joey look different to me.

    • Pseudo Faux

      Maybe rick is trying to show that Joey’s grown up? More mature?

      • Gaboris

        Look a bit back at the comments. Rick says he had to rush it a bit, but I think Joey is just fine. :)

  10. Enty

    Ah, so we’ve a name for him now

    also, CURSE YOU 4KIDS

    • The Wolf Kin

      A curse upon 4KIDS indeed.

    • Guardian Infinity

      4 kids and Disney, those two evil corporations must be destroyed

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        How do we know the flick isn’t Funimation?

        • Inu225

          Ugh… please don’t say that word.
          I’m already over the fact that they are licensing the “Evangelion tetralogy “. But “Summer Wars”? They’re just trying to upset me.

          • Gaboris

            What’s that supposed to mean? They’re not trying to ruin Evangelion as well. O_O”

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            But Funimation fixed the dub of Initial D and that has to count for something.

      • Wilford B. Wolf

        Dunno why people are upset over Disney. They do provide decently dubbed and subtitled Studio Ghibli DVDs…

        (Though the song at the English version of Ponyo… *shudder*)

    • fastbreak333

      People should be dissing their cartoons as well as their dubs as well. Except for TMNT. They actually made something good out of that.

    • Enty

      I’m just gonna come out and say this, I don’t like anime :)

      • James

        Well that’s unfortunate because Rick uses a lot of Anime themes in this comic along with American humor.

        • Enty

          I noticed.

  11. Thegamist

    Panel 4 unfortunatly I can’t say that because I don’t have a life

  12. 2MK

    What kind of breed is Lester anyway?

    • PrivateElliot

      Brown.
      /trollface

  13. Argent Stonecutter

    But Ninja Princess is a SEGA game.

    • Rick Griffin

      I knew someone would find that

      • Hypergenesis

        Hey, if Pork-Thigh Chun Li can get one. . .

        • tahrey

          huh… *googles*… hmm, looks moderately cool. except that the main character looks chinese, and her weapons appear to be swastikas.

          BTW,
          LEAVE CHUN LI ALOOOONNNNEEE! ;,,-(
          Her gams are fine just the way they are, you size 0 fascist

          • FlareKitsune

            Vega > Chun Li

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Glad to be of service!

    • xhunterko

      Wait, wasn’t it ported to the DS as well? Or is that another Ninja princess game?

  14. yodawg

    Is it just me or is this a reference to that new movie “alpha and omega”?

    • PrivateElliot


      OHMAHGawDiTCOULD BE
      But when i saw the trailer for said movie i turned away. I dont know why, but it made me freel strange feel awkward.

      • The Wolf Kin

        Apparently, it’s good. A friend say it, recommended it. Good for a few laughs, apparently.

  15. The Wolf Kin

    Heh heh, this is sometimes how I feel watching English dubs.

    Most relevant here: Studio Ghibli films, which are released through Disney in North America, thus the alt text on the comic. Always prefer the Japanese subbed, especially on Ponyo. I’d rather not watch it with the voices of a Cyrus and a Jonas in my head.

  16. AmericanOtter

    ……………………………………………

    Uh…… can I say I actually dislike American Japanese fan boys/girls? well Lester hardcore ness.

    Mainly because they are… down right pushy, they dislike anything American Culture, they live in their own twisted reality of where Japan is superior in everything… I mean, I am the Classic Disney Movie watcher.

    ((And before anyone says I have watched Myosaki films…. and frankly, they are good, really, really good.))

    That said so are Snow White, Lion King, Princess and the Frog, Cinderella, Pinocchio, and really any film produced by Mr. Disney himself. My two cents are said. That is my opinion.

    • Enty

      Ramen to that. (as the pastafarians might say)

    • The Wolf Kin

      Though, technically, two of the films you referenced (Lion King and Princess and the Frog) were done well after Walt’s death.

      Still, ya, Disney films are awesome, as are Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli films.

    • pet_panda

      i love america and japan, they bothe have amazing movies, but they also have theire fair shair of crap shacks. I’m a fan of it all, so i just play each movie and show by ear, then check it out for myself, then give it a thumbs up or down.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      I agree implisatly (thats a big word for very much) :)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        NOO! WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

      • Rocket Knight boy

        rofl rofl i’m sorry don’t hurt me!

    • Gaboris

      I think we’re all with you on that one man. Animes like the Ghibli films are cool and the works of Disney are just perfect… The only problem comes when they try to force mixing them. XP
      Everyone should stick to the things they know they can do just as Rick right here. :) These are my two cents… well rather five “forint”-s since that’s our smallest coin by now. :p

  17. Val Kilmer Batman

    I recognized Lester. I DIDN’T recognize Joey, at least for a second. It’s definitely the jaw.

    Oh, and don’t worry Lester, we ALL feel that way watching the movie previews. Well, at least sometimes. I guess. I’m not helping am I? Wait did you really have a life to begin with, man? Um, dog?

    Anyways, high school AND college tommorow, so goodnight…

    for now…

    • The Wolf Kin

      Heh heh, sometimes, the previews are my favourite part of a film. Even if there are some bad ones, I don’t know why, I just love previews.

      • Hypergenesis

        Me too since I usually watch movie in a home theater, and I usually don’t have choosing rights.

      • Gaboris

        I’m with you man, but I normaly never see a bad preview. Even BAD films like G.I. JOE have an awesome preview… that’s what I’d say at least. :p

        • Rocket Knight boy

          even if said preview was of……A ROBOCOP MOVIE!! DUN dun duuuun

          • Gaboris

            … Sorry don’ get it. The Robocop series was a bit wierd for me not the movies. XD

          • Rocket Knight boy

            lol i just think the robocop movies were terrible nevermind then, on a side note robocops got nothing on JUDGE DREDD! lol

          • Gaboris

            Never said they were good, but with all the corny commercials, bad animations and stuff it was good for a laugh. X3
            Yeah the Judge would’ve taken Robo down with a bazooka ro somethin. XD

          • Rocket Knight boy

            SYLVESTER STALONE:- “you enforce tha law? ha!! i AM THE LAW!!” whispers to handgun “nuke mode” clickBOOM!!!
            …..
            …..
            you have been judged….

          • Rocket Knight boy

            but my three faveroute lines in the movie are:-

            “the law is never wrong”

            “the law never makes mistakes”

            “the law made a mistake” rofl

  18. xhunterko

    For those who cannot read the alt-text:

    “HOW COULD THEY STAIN A MASTERPIECE BY PREVIEWING A DISNEY FLICK”

    • xhunterko

      Also, third panel, Joey’s face, avatar if you ever wanted one.

      Okay, I’m gonna stop now before I get in trouble.

      • Rocket Knight boy

        what about third panel lesters face?…………………………………you know what never mind….

  19. Argent Stonecutter

    So is this going to be a Joey-and-hid-friends arc or is it going to be a bunch of vignettes like the them park arc?

    • The Wolf Kin

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a little story of how Joey convinces Lester to see the film, and then their reaction to the film.

      But I’m likely wrong.

      • Hypergenesis

        Nor will I be surprised if Lester ends up becoming a 100-foot mecha and shoots a laser at Disney. . . (*cue dalonewolf25*)

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Peanut should offer Lester a walk-on in the adventures of Spot. For a consideration.

          • Hypergenesis

            But will Lester agree? Peanut’s American.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Would he miss a chance to show how to adapt Manga for the American audience the right way?

          • Hypergenesis

            If he’s half as good as Joey and would put lines on paper for free then I think it could cross to reality

        • dalonewolf25

          Whut? What did i miss?

          • Hypergenesis

            Nor will I be surprised if Lester ends up becoming a 100-foot mecha and shoots a laser at Disney. . . (*cue dalonewolf25*)

          • dalonewolf25

            hmm, I’ll see what I can do, but if you zoom in my profile pic, you shall see disney world, well, what’s left of it anyways…

    • Valerio

      Remember? Back in the days, we were given an arc to choose among a series proposed by Rick. Sasha’s arc was the winneer then, but the others were not to be discarded in a limbo.
      My guess is that Rick-sama will give us those arcs as they were voted. So we can expect, among the other things, an arc with the ubercool K-9 unit! Yay!

  20. Valerio

    hehehe, I SO understand Lester.
    He brings me back memories of when we kids used to discuss over anime just like him…
    Delicious comic, today, Rick!

  21. pet_panda

    2003 year of the anime revolution…all the poor kids who were sucked into fan-hood only to be crushed by 4kids.

    lol

    jk

    • tahrey

      It’s a cycle, about every 5 years it’s “the year of the anime revolution” all over again. Been recurring pretty much since VCRs and international computerised communication (BBSes, email, newsgroups, all at a heady 2400 baud) became cheap enough for fansubber/dubbers to do their thing, and particularly after “proper” import companies came along.

      I was there for the early AND late 90s ones (and saw the evidence of a late 80s one), as well as the first oscillations of the ‘03 wave in late ‘02 (socially disasterous but good online). Bet there was one in ‘08/09 too, going by how a few people I know were suddenly obsessed by all this Naruto/Bleach/Death Note/Lucky Star stuff that I’ve since stopped caring about.

      Strangely, Studio Ghibli operates independently of all this, but I think their greatest western hits come when the two waves cohere and mutually reinforce.

    • tahrey

      (presumably it’s as the older ones grow up and out of it, or have other interests, and leave the skeleton of it for their younger siblings and their classmates … it only requires one kid from one school year, or a spread of three years, to inherit their older brother (or sister?)’s collection of anime and/or manga and start showing it around…)

  22. Elwood Blutarsky

    How weird is Lester if Joey’s playing the straight guy to his antics? This is going to get good.

    • Hypergenesis

      There are some things to consider when saying this statement.
      1) Lester is among “Joey’s Creepy Friends” and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. Quoting Cast Page: “Joey’s Creepy Friends: Into the same stuff that Joey is, but far, far worse. Don’t ask.”
      2) Lester was the one who claimed that a perfect translation was skimping off on some parts. (http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/09/23/subbed-stands-for-with-subtlety/) Ah wait was that exclamation point replaced by an ellipsis? Ah my bad.
      3) He’s a Dachshund (I think), and everyone knows Hotdogs likes to eat hotdogs.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        iz ah dachshund ah taipe uv dog or sumthin :?

        • Frank

          Assuming this is a serious question and you’re not doing this just to sound faux german…

          …the dachshund (better known as the “wiener dog”) is a breed of dog with short legs, a long snout, and a very long, sausage-shaped body.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            oh ok anf yeah ai wuz serious ^.^

    • Naylorfan90

      Oh no, you’re right! HE’S RIIIIIGHT!!!

      *runs away screaming*

    • Gaboris

      Yeah this’ll be a funny arc if it goes on like th… oh WAIT! What if the whole story goes on with Lester being locked up in the toilet and Joey trying to get him out of there? :O Now THAT would be a laugh. XD

      • Frank

        It would also be very hard to draw (honestly, try it: how many different panels can you have if you only have 1 character to work with?)

  23. FerreTrip

    The fact I’m up early enough to catch this within the first 80 comments is scary and proof I probably have some form of insomnia (or forgetting at the time that the tea had a couple hours ago is caffeinated).

    But also the fact that tomorrow is gonna be a night for Anime Club…THAT’S frightening.

    I have the worst feeling I’m going to want to beat Lester with a rolled-up newspaper HARD by the end of this arc (oh, God, it’s gonna be an arc with Joey, that’s gonna be interesting)…I mean, I want to beat him normal force already…

    • FerreTrip

      Make that first 50, just barely. Wow. O.O;

      • Hypergenesis

        Ah don’t worry, it’s actually not that bad. A lot of premier commentators have been missing lately, god knows why. . .

        • Gaboris

          School started and they don’ have as much time then before? I sure had that prob for the last few months cuz of my summer job. :p

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            High school and College AT THE SAME TIME.

            DX

          • Gaboris

            How does THAT work? O_O”

  24. FerreTrip

    Oh, and since “Joey’s Creepy Friends” is what category Lester falls under, Rick, you might want to either tag this with that, too, or just make Lester an entry in the cast page (which you might as well, if he’s going to be an important character to this arc). Shuttin’ up now.

    • Gaboris

      Agreed on that man. :D

    • Frank

      From what I gathered, Rick doesn’t like updating the cast page.

  25. LoneWolf

    This is my reaction to movie previews as well.

    (Now THERE’S a lost art.)

    • tahrey

      I’ve been so late into most movies lately I rarely see them. Usually just the “please turn off your phone” thing.

      There’s a bit of an art to it, and can make finding seats difficult in popular showings, but can save you an awful lot of boredom and/or mental anguish.

  26. DoctorEevee

    Meeeeeh i dislike them weeaboo’s who are soo into japanese “culture”. Liking japanese things is fine, but they shouldn’t take it overboard =3=;; Especially when they dont even know what REAL japanese culture is .3. and i would know what real japan is like, I’m jap .0.

    • Inu225

      I’m Japanese as well yet I’ve never been to Japan. The funny part is I have always wanted to visit Japan. It’s ironic; a Japanese person born in America wanting to go to Japan. Its like a Caucasian person born in Japan wanting to go to America.

      Also please don’t use that word to say “Japanese”. IDK I find it somewhat offensive. “Jpns” would be better in context.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Just so long as you use gaikokujin instead of gaijin.

        • Inu225

          Lol
          Ok… (>人<;)

    • DoctorEevee

      Er.. ok? I really dont see how “jap” offends anyone .0. it doesn’t offend me =w= But as you wish, i wont use that anymore~

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        It was often used as a racial slur during the World War II era, and still has a lot of the same connotations today.

        • DoctorEevee

          heeeeeeh… history lesson~ \o/

  27. Firewolf

    Yep, I felt like that about some movies. I hope the Ranger’s Apprentice movie won’t be like this. 0_0

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I can’t watch that movie. I won’t.

      I went out on a limb and watched “The Lightning Thief” at my cousin’s house…

      THEY BUTCHERED IT SO HARD.
      SO. UNBELIEVABLY. HARD.
      IT WAS LIKE THEY GAINED SOME SORT OF SICK, TWISTED ENJOYMENT FROM IT.

      Actually, though, it would have been okay had I not read the books. Meh.

  28. fastbreak333

    Don’t worry, Lester, you can always complain about how Disney ruined your life and cinema by talking about it on Blogspot. Both of your watchers will be pleased! :D

  29. Inu225

    I hate to admit this but I can easily relate to Lester’s character. I’m not saying that I will freak out over something as small as previews it’s just the concept of dubbing a Japanese film that is a touchy subject for me.
    Granted you’re going to have to have an Anime film dubbed into English when it hits America which I’m fine with it’s only when they edit the content of the film to tone it down to American audience standards that makes me cringe. Things like violence, disturbing images, blood/gore are some of the few things that occasionally gets edited over to keep with the PG or PG-13 rating of a film.
    I know some people will probably say it’s no big deal but when you do cut out content from from a film you lose something in the process. Think of it like this: Cinema is an art. Art is creative works expressed by individuals like us. Art is expressive and should be kept the way it is without the need to edit the material. Editing the film just because it won’t fly in America is like saying your art isn’t appropriate enough so we’re going to erase this and that just to make it much better.
    I just think that when it comes to bringing things like Anime over to the US you get these cultural clashes that may seem strange and weird to us but normal in other places.

    • Hypergenesis

      I can’t hate to admit it because I share Lester’s views with Disney. I can’t even remember when was the last time they made a decent movie. With all the gender confusing barks, ridiculous forced romance, inappropriate flashing lights, that awful logo, the neutered mascot. . . I don’t even know where to end.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        … gender confusing barks… ???

        Cui?

        • Hypergenesis

          Uhh, most movies with dogs have these very high pitched barks and hearing dogs bark in real life, it makes me wonder if the dog features in the movie were who they claim they were.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            neutered mascot :? ?

          • Hypergenesis

            The voice acting’s worse than actual gender confused people.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh, bother, another accidental moderation.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            And what’s with all these Argent avatars? You’re taunting me!

            My eyes should be darker than that.

          • Frank

            I told you to adjust the fur pattern

          • Hypergenesis

            Darker is eye then.

            It’s my fault I’m a coffee cup, but what can I do? I adore Argent Milton Keene Stonecutter very much.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So, anyway, to get back to the point, I didn’t think the gender of dogs made much difference to their bark… so I’m still at sea.

          • Hypergenesis

            Between breed there wouldn’t be much of a difference because each has its own set of frequencies, but with those of the same breeds, their barks are quite distinct between males and females. They probably used puppy sounds which makes it just as annoying because like humans their voices age and while the characters age, their voices (barks that is) don’t.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            And a little tweak to the neck…

    • Gaboris

      In short they should stick to theri own stuff and do what they know they can do right. Agreed with you I am Inu. :)

      @Hyper: I don’ know, when it comes to Disneys original works I’d say they’re alright the way they are. So as long as they don’ wanna mess up the works of others they’re fine with me.

      • Hypergenesis

        Original as in the ones on 19XX?

        Recent ones are just plain annoying as they have the technology to do something real good (A quick comparison would be a Miyazaki with Advent Children Graphics) but then anytime they release anything it comes out as something I could barely relate to with a half the movie in musical and the other half as crud angst mush. I won’t deny that I liked them at one point but now they’re just like Nintendo, always settling for half-polished gems. I’m not saying they’re wrong by approaching the industry in all hopes of raking in profits, but I just wished they’d do something above average every now and then that would make even heartless people like me interested.

        • Gaboris

          Hmmm… yeah if you look at it that way the new ones are slipping into the dark pit of profit hungering hounds, but sadly we can’t do much against that so we sould just accept how they are and get along… But yeah a new born classic would be nice. :)

          • Frank

            Spirited Away wasn’t awesome enough for you, I take it

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Nausicaa was more awesome.

            That’s why I made her glider in Second Life.

          • Gaboris

            I was talkin aboot the Disney ones, Spirited away was cool I’d say. :D
            Nausicaa was just nice, I liked it even as a kid… to understand that I find it a bit hard to understand as a kid and I mostly don’ like shows like that. But she was different. :)

        • Frank

          How do you even read that? Nineteen Exidy-ex?

          • Hypergenesis

            Nineteen execs.

            You could read it as nineteen twenty if you’re half roman, but make it twenties because it’s three more years before the company was even founded.

    • Rick Griffin

      Personally I think that editing something for propriety is alright so long as the unedited version is also provided. Shakespeare wouldn’t have had such a strong revival in the 1800s if it weren’t for the Bowlder versions after all.

      • Gaboris

        True and yeah I just remembered a fact about editing stories. I bet almost all of us knows the Cinderella right? Well as far as I heard the original story was a bit too… bloody and had to be edited for childern. If it was the Grimms or someone else I don’ know, but it’s true.
        So yeah I agree that sometimes changes have to be made. (But butchery is still a crime against art.) :p

        • Frank

          All of the Brother’s Grimm’s stories were edited for gore. Frog prince? He had to be splattered against the wall and killed. Red Riding Hood? The wolf had to be cut open to pull her out, and then was sewed back shut. Rapunzel? She was scalped while being pregnant. Why would Cinderella be any different?

          And honestly, who would tell such a thing to their children today?

          • Hypergenesis
          • Frank

            Isn’t that a remake of a Corporal Reyes joke?

          • Gaboris

            The Red Ridinghood was like that when I was a kid, it wasn’t disturbing for me so don’ know where’s the prob. :)
            But yeah old stories have more gore then the ones today… wierd. XP

      • Inu225

        I think providing both edited and unedited versions of a film is a workable compromise for a house divided. Though I can’t say that editing films is something I approve of having an unedited version at least shows that the company does care about the original work.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Is it weird that this makes me think of that one episode of that one show where they tried to ban Michelangelo’s David because it was inappropriate?

      Well, the first thought was some… modifications… that might have been made.

  30. Hypergenesis

    Is it just me or does joey have a footstool/footrest. . . Augh! “Anything that raises his leg”. It seems kind of odd that his knee is visible while Lester’s isn’t.

    The giant tub of popcorn backs this statement up otherwise it should have tilted to the other side, and he can’t cross his legs unless he has a phasing ability.

    The 2-fingered hands also creeping me out. . .

    Also, I know it’s rushed but are the ears that big before?

    Lastly, is that a “Dollar” tag on Lester?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If that’s a human-sized seat, and their legs are pet-scale, then they’re likely not long enough to hang over the edge anyway. So the “footrest” is the seat.

      Also makes me think that Peanut and Grape have a pet-sized couch.

      • Hypergenesis

        How do you explain Lester?

        I doubt he’s taller/longer because if you look at http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/09/23/subbed-stands-for-with-subtlety/ you can see Joey’s way larger than Lester.

        Ah, right. . . Shorter legs.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Lester’s got his legs crossed. You can see his paw.

          • Hypergenesis

            Oooh I see it. I though that was his arm on a. . eh. . Something.

            Anyways look at panel 4 for clarifications about their height. The metal plate to swinging doors is usually elbow level.

            AS for the couch. . If you look at …/2009/09/28/stranger-danger/ and …/2008/12/25/housepets-christmas-edition/ it confirms your pet-sized couch theory as the two couches are different.
            As further reference, Miles is about five-thirds of Peanut …/2009/10/21/puppy-power/ and …/2009/09/28/stranger-danger/ shows that Miles is roughly Mr. Sandwich’s height.

        • James

          Didn’t Rick say that they are about the size of human children?

      • Rick Griffin

        You know I always forget most people are already much shorter than me

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I’ve been told I have the same problem, but I don’t think I’m particularly tall.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      lol his tags a YU-GI-OH card!

      • Gaboris

        Never saw a green YGO(can’t get myself to say it sorry XP) card before, but ya could be right. :D

        • Rocket Knight boy

          well it would make as much sense as the rest of it lol
          honestly i’ve never seen the appeal for that show, the fact that the kid yugi never got to play the card game…ever……but was instead being constently possesed by a million year old pharoah was actually kinda freaky, i think people would hate it if i started to turn into hades god of the underworld over a game of top trumps lol

          • Gaboris

            Sorry I’m a nerd with these kinds of things, but he DID play a few times and also the pharaoh later on just helped him not controlled Yugi and just to make it worst… pharaohs were not a million years ago even if they have those millenium things with them. Sorry. XD
            But still I understand what ya mean man. :)

          • Hypergenesis

            You? Gee. . . Oh! Imitation Holographic Cards!?!?!

            Sorry can’t help but remember those times I actually saw a green YGO card.

            Quoting random brat: “Oh look, mine’s all shiny and it has a different color. It must mean it’s very rare.”

            Then the next day everybody had one.

            Anyways, I was thinking it may be a DnD card? Does DnD have cards?

          • Rocket Knight boy

            lol thats ok man but as you can see egsagerating is a hobby of mine

          • Rocket Knight boy

            DnD cards wouldn’t surprise me, you could get a shoe trading card game these days lol WOW check out my leather loafers! ha! i counter with sketchers!

          • Gaboris

            @Hyper: Point there man, I never collected YGO card, I only bought one set and that was WAY more then enough. So can’t know really what kinds are there. XD
            @Rocket: That’s cool, for me egsagerating is one of my many flaws. X) Hehe “Get ready to Shuel!” Sorry that was in my stomach and I kinda felt bad. >_<"

          • Rocket Knight boy

            Get ready to shuel…………rofl you sir/madam deserve a cookie lol that was epic pun!

          • Gaboris

            YAAAY My pun is accepted!!! :D
            BTW I’m a guy so thx. X)

        • Frank

          Maybe it’s a tag that was never sold in America? I mean, look at this trading card:
          http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/card332.jpg
          There are some seriously wierd things in the TCG industry!

          • Gaboris

            Ouch, never saw somethin like that before. XP
            Point there man. :D

  31. Hypergenesis

    Hurry up in there! You’re not the only one who need to use the toilet, and I’m not in the mood to drink.

    • dalonewolf25

      But I’m really depressed! I need to drown my sorrows away!

  32. Argent Stonecutter

    The extent of Joey’s eyepatch seems inconsistent. It probably should be wider and completely around his eye even when he’s mad, but this isn’t the first time it’s been drawn as a partial circle so I can’t really say it’s off-model.

    • Hypergenesis

      Just like King!

      • Hypergenesis

        Or us!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I tried getting my forelock right but my gimp-fu isn’t powerful enough.

    • Rick Griffin

      I’m not exactly sure how to do the patch with the eyebrows; I just try to make the brow the top boundary of the patch.

      • Hypergenesis

        This is just what I think, maybe you did this unconsciously or it could be intentional, but I think this is what Argent was referring to:
        http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/02/26/doghouse-rules/

        Just editing the shape and lines of the eye itself to compensate for the eyebrow, merging eye and brow within the eyepatch. Although it might be hard to notice when Joey’s left side is further in (panel 1,3) as he has a forelock, but in the opposite situation (panel 4) it would really be noticeable.

        Again this is just my opinion.

  33. Rocket Knight boy

    theres a dog in the mens room

    • gagi

      ooo nooo …. and it’s a walking tog .. with thumbs and everything ….

      you get awesome point’s for that comment, cause it made me lol :)

      • Rocket Knight boy

        lol cheers mate! :)

  34. Gamerkitty

    and here i thought animals would not be allowed into movie theaters.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      maybe joey’s dog house has a movie theater in it………among other things…

    • Hypergenesis

      Pet-friendly neighborhood?

      Besides, a customer is a customer right?

      • Gaboris

        Plus… these… animals… CAN TALK! How about them apples? :D
        Oh and they also walk and act somewhat like people. :p

        • Gamerkitty

          how true.

    • Valerio

      pet-friendly neighborhood
      pets who get allowances in money
      pets who can spend money for books at the conventions
      pets who can go in an ice cream store and buy ice cream
      pets who can go on a romantic date to see Pridelands

      So why shouldn’t they go to a movie theater?

  35. Gaboris

    Yeah I know alot of these movies, but even the previews? Now that’s odd, I always loved previews, sometimes even more then the actual thing. XD
    BTW as long as ppl stick to what they can do there aren’t any problems with Disney or animes, only when they try to mix them by force. XP

    • Argent Stonecutter

      They always blow the best shots on the trailers.

      You even get scenes in the previews that don’t make it into the movie.

      http://www.cracked.com/video_18156_a-trailer-every-academy-award-winning-movie-ever.html

      • Gaboris

        HÁH! I love this vid, had to watch it over and over at the first time I got to it. XD
        But yeah I hate those cut scenes as well. :p
        Still better when they just blow the whole plot with telling the ending: “…so the murderer is none other then Colonel Mustard!!! DUN-DUNn-duuuunnn” Bad joke but true. XD

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Some movies are inherently spoilered. Titanic, for example. What, you don’t know that the ship sinks?

          • Frank

            “Tough. You should know this already!”
            –TVtropes.org

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You’re taunting CalaverX11.

          • Hypergenesis

            Hey, it was Titanic (adj.) but not Titan (iceberg) enough.

          • CalaverX11

            I’m over my addiction, thank you. I’m not due for another relapse for a few more weeks.

    I actually know people like this.

  38. Sherry

    What a great concept! Movie reviewing through comic strip! Love it!

  39. sketcherofstuff

    Huh… so you gave Joey’s creepy friend a name, eh? And what better name than Lester, a very creepy name indeed. (no offense to all of the Lesters out there, although I’m sure that nothing that I can say will make you any less angry with me)

  40. Misharu

    I conquer…some anime fans can be this crazy ^^; I should know, I am a Japanophile

  41. NobodyYouKnow

    lesters tag is all awesome and stuff! cool.
    also go anime!

    • dalonewolf25

      You are nobody I know, yet you’re somebody you know. Is there any corrolation to this nonsense? If so, you must be erradicated!
      *Points sniper rifle*

      • NobodyYouKnow

        oh no!

  42. Denki Wolf

    Wait!
    So it was dubbed by 4Kids?
    I am a huge fan of anime, but this would kind of be over doing it.

  43. Kitch

    Drama queen much?

  44. iHavezMyBirdo

    …Nipponophiles?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      He’s saying he’s obsessed with Japan. “Nippon” is how you say “Japan” in Japanese.

      • Hypergenesis

        Since “Japan” is a word used by the non-Nihonjin Pekoponjin(s).

      • iHavezMyBirdo

        Oh, I know that. But, nipponophile’s a word?

  45. Juan

    worst thing ever – pokemon english translation-
    however, the latin spanish version of team rocket is really funny.
    -4kids, the butchers of truth-

    • Alex M.

      i liked the spanish translation i the very old chapters, but the new ones the voices were annoying >:(

      • dalonewolf25

        well, I grew up with the pokemon english translation, so I like it over the original.

        • Hypergenesis

          Complete opposite as I grew up with the pokemon english translation and gained an instantaneous channel switching reflex at any sign of it.

  46. Argent Stonecutter

    I don’t even know who 4kids is.

    • Alex M.

      4kids translated some animes like pokemon and yu-gi-oh to spanish and english

      • dalonewolf25

        It’s a channel section that appears in Fox Channels on Saturday Mornings. USA.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      I envy you (shudder)

      • Rocket Knight boy

        sonic X still haunts me………..DARN YOU CHRIS THORNDYKE!!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        So… I take it they committed worse sins than casting Frank Welker for every sidekick.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          let’s just say if you have a tv show who’s dignity you DON’T want desicrated these are people you should steer clear from…

        • Rocket Knight boy

          assuming said tv show had any dignity to begin with………
          ….
          ….
          thats right sonic x i’m glaring at you!

        • CalaverX11

          What are you saying? Frank Welker is cool. He was the ORIGINAL Megatron.

          Since then all his roles sucked.

    • Hypergenesis

      Same here, though I get an idea how evil it is with the other comments.

      At least I now know who to blame for some of the nightmarish nights I had.

  47. anthroguy101

    Looks like we’re getting a Joey arc, since I don’t see “one-off.” HOORAY!! I’m a HUGE joey fan, and somewhere in my id I’ve been waiting for this.

  48. Fenrari

    When did Lester pop into the scene?

  49. Rider098

    I can relate to that last panel… many times. With previews, the actual movie, and straight to video productions. Both foreign and domestic types of films!

    I feel for Lester.

    • NexusWulf

      What do you feel ? do you feel sad for him ? or do you just wanna say right in his face OwNeD ? well yar choice eh X3

  50. dalonewolf25

    WHY? Why must you influence our children’s minds with previews which don’t even corrolate to their generation and damage the good name of anime with 4kids? *shoots lazer*

    • Hypergenesis

      Because.
      . . it’s. .
      . . . money. . .

    • Frank

    Over-react much? Sadly, I know a lot of people do that. Joey sure has interesting friends. No wonder he has experience in drawing to the point his cyborg dog was awesome to behold.

  54. RockstarRaccoon

    Can it be? It’s a JOEY ARC!!

  55. Nia

    And that’s how a million of people felt after watching M.Nights Avatar the Last Airbender

  56. Lake

    A thousand tiny knives?

  57. Alex M.

    I’m wondering, if Lester also roleplay, but worse than Joey…

  58. Fuzzypaws

    Sometimes his opinion is a valid one! But it should be formed later in the process. *giggles*

    Anything with Disney previews is probably not going to be too watchable.
