Alt-Text: The scripts were much shorter before then
I don’t think the Alt-Text will cure this case of Confusion, pal.
Anyone else besides me wiki SPEC scripts?
Care to elborate?
A ‘Spec Script’ is basically a script (usually a screenplay for a movie, not commercials) that the writer is hoping to ’sell’, rather than the studio going to their writers and saying ‘We need a script for X, and it needs to appeal to the 18-25 demo, and have talking squirrels’.
This scenario feels oddly familiar…
Also, I wonder how well Sasha writes?
As probably as well as she plays the piano.
(especially, you know, since it’s her first time and all)
Maybe that’s not the case… I play the synth like a god, but I can’t write to save my life.
That may not be the case… For example I play the synth like a god but can’t write to save my life.
my apologies if this comment shows up twice I’m having network issues
It’s ok, it’s not your fault. When you mean the synth, you mean like a disk jockey?
I assumed he meant MIDI keyboard.
Yeah exactly… I produce original EDM tracks and then mix them live like a DJ. It’s how I makes teh money!
Give me some credit Argent Stonecutter! lol I use modular/analog synthesizers. But I do have quite a collection of MIDI controlled VST synthesizers too.
So if you don’t use a keyboard, what kind of controller do you use?
Sequencers… but like I said I have a ton of MIDI keyboards I use just as much
And this is where Sasha’s hidden savant talents come out and she has good writing skills, yes? *giggles*
This is the “???” before “PROFIT!”.
didn’t dat alredy happen w/ the piano playin ?
Sasha looks great in panel 3… just sayin’
Not to mention Rock in panel two.
I never really was that big a fan of how the ferrets looked. That being said, the production assistant also looks fantastic
I..Need to go to bed….
I think we can all dream of cute(Oh yes,) pictures of Sasha.
Who’s my favorite female doggy?
sahsa’s da bomb (of cuteness)
Kaboom. I fell for her…<3
ooo this should be the best commercial ever goooo Sasha
Watch Sasha go on hyper mode!
That’s the new catchphrase, eh?
Cannine Cibble, the movie?
No, no, no.
Cannine Cibble; The Trilogy.
The Series of Cannine Cibble.
So… Gandalf wading through an unending mountain of kibble.. while the elf walks on top?
Sasha has appeared particularly pinker this arc than usual… Vould just be a trick of the eyes though
Probably. Even though, you have to admit, we haven’t seen her happier. At least not in a while.
I think the closest thing was when she got the unicorn
Lol panel 3
They were so excited…
You know the fact that Sasha did this dose not surprise me in the least
“Does” and “dose” are two very different things.
(hmm… maybe I should make a spelling nazi avatar)
*hands a nazi uniform, symbol, and cake*
Here ya go!
Aww… She is cute….
I see shipping opportunities…why? Why not?
You’re scaring me
join the club
We’ve already got dogs and cats living together, why not cut straight to mass hysteria?
Because that would imply logic, my friend…
Doggy haz a Midnight snack! :3
That’s your cue for inspiration, Alex! You know what to do…right?
Buy a ticket to the Titanic?
Titanic x Iceberg FTW!
You want one. Don’t you :p?
You know me so well…
Wow, this is wow, smart girl behind her rather empty face…. nice job having all of us underestemate her, and nice to see she is saving the comercial.
Now it’s Daisy’s turn, no?
Daisy is not a secret genius. I would bet on this. One Hamburger.
Oh yeah? well I bet a One Man Cheeseburger Apocalypse that Daisy is going to end up being smarter than everybody… she just has a disease that makes her only able to say one thing all the time.
I’ll bet yo a cookie! Without the disease.
oh yeah will ai bet TWO cookies that daisy’s goin to say “Hi I’m Daisy.”
I’ll bet that if we keep this going, then someday…maybe just one day, will Rick let Daisy say something else…someday…
I place a keychain on this…
I’ll bet 1M of cookies That Daisy will find the cure of some disease like cancer.
She is probably going to end up being the Great Kitsune’s avatar now, watch.
You people keep stealing my job! (Although I haven’t worked in a few weeks.) By the way, who can I talk to for a new Betting Stand?
Come on, the Schroeder scene was a dead giveaway.
This will either be an extremely stupid commercial that no one thinks is stupid because it’s so stupid, OR, it’s going to be the most persuasive commercial Housepets! has ever seen.
I thought http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/02/19/show-and-tell/ was the most persuasive commercial Housepets! has ever seen.
That was more of……a persuasive argument.
ai ferget wut they were tryin to do :/?
Get better pet food with extra awesomeness.
ahhh oh kay
There we go! She’s all smiles and bounce. The World is saved…*contented sigh*…wait, spec scripts?..I don’t get it.
I spy a soon-to-be avatar in panel 3.
*piece of paper has complete randomness on it*
I must be a Savant because every face I predicted in this strip to be an avatar became an avatar. >.>
So, you don’t think Panel 4 works as an avatar? It’s like the definition of cute! (when you look at it without the other three panels, i mean)
look! up in the sky! its a bird! No, its a plane! NO! its the punchline soaring over everyone’s heads!!!! (didn’t get it either at first, awesome comic)
SPEC SCRIPT – A spec script is a “speculative” screenplay, one that the Variety slanguage dictionary defines as being “shopped or sold on the open market, as opposed to one commissioned by a studio or production company.
I didn’t get it either at first. I noticed that the esteemed Rick Griffin has been making the jokes of late a little too esteemed. As I say in IRC chat, I don’t get Smart People talk. =P But once I did some college level research on Spec Scripts (wikipedia) I got the joke and found it both humorous and enlightening.
Point is for Hollywood to get some ORIGINAL ideas? That’s completly unheard of!
That’s about the reaction a spec script gets.
Hehe now I’m interested in what she made up. If she wrote what she didn’ know then it may just turn out to be a genious commercial. XD
Must love how excited se is in panel two with all the boing soundeffects, but I understand why everyone loves panel three so much. :3
BTW at first I thought that the alt-text was mean, but then I rememberd we were talkin aboot Sasha here. X)
Mod Edit-Speak English.

You have been warned…

Oh My Gosh.
Somebody replaced Alex with an evil Robot Clone!!! D8
Then I’ll repeat what I already said: Ask me politely.
If you are all spelling Nazi about this, I am not going to take you seriously.
Ah sez it az Ah like it, nya! >:3
And iz not speikin’ iz typin’. ;p
Hoy man, sheesh why they pick this one of your comments to mod and just now?
BTW it’s funny seeing you type all average english(not “normal” or “right” don’ worry cuz that’s just a myth :p) after the feline style. XD
So they gonna let you put your comment up again or are they all being SN’s? :O
Mod-Edit=Or your posting rights can go away.
I thought the “propper english” portion was another mod edit
@Aerix: =I have no idea what that was just now, but you must be right.= XD
No wonder ya type like that, there aren’t much ppl out there to do that. XP Okay just keep it up man, I personally love your style, it gives some spice to the whole thing. X3
@Frank: Don’ be sad man, it’s okay… as long as they don’ wanna start a war. XD
YYYAAAAAAYYYYYY XD!11111!!!!!!!!!!! aerix ur talkin normal agin XDDDDD
Please. There you go, you have your requested politeness.
Treat the mods with respect for crying out loud. Do you seriously want to have your posting rights revoked?
CAN’T YOU ALL JUST GET ALONG
Seriously? Aerix has his own style of commenting as most of us has. Okay if some ppl can’t get over it when they just shouldn’t read his comments, but even mods can’t? Now that’s sad sorry to say thiss. >:(
…For some reason, to me, in Panel two, Sasha seems… hungry. Veeeery hungry. For ferret.
(Of course, that’s only looking at the faces.)
The eyes kind of ruin the effect
Panel 3 is WAY to cute. But I love the expressions on the 4th panel.
On another note…. What does Sasha know?
Wait, so she’s a dog, but doesn’t know a thing about dog food? I think I’ve been listening to Peanut talk about dog food too much. XD
OMG I just realized something! Thanksgiving is this week meaning food, Macy’s Day Parade, and no school! man, this is a slow day for me…
If you missed the comics joke heres a joke for you.
“A man walks into a bar………he said OW!”
“A horse walks into a bar………the man said stupid horse!”
“There was an Englishman, an Irishman and a scotsman……..all of whom walked into the same bar and later called the Council for planning permission to get the pole removed”
No no, it’s “a mathematician and a physicist walked into a bar, but the engineer saw it and ducked”.
Oh god lol…my nemeses…
Which? The mathematician? The physicist, The engineer? The bar? Argent? Or (heaven forbid) the duck?
The spherical lion.
The physicist and the bar. The engineer and the mathematician are fine with me. Not sure about Argent and the spherical tribble…
Well, at least she’s well prepared.
Will wonders never cease, the girl does have talent!
…Who would have guessed?
I was wondering where the Thanksgiving reference would be! ^_^
I love how Sasha bounces between being clueless and showing actual intelligence ^w^
Holy crap is Sasha cute in this.
isn’t she all ways ?
This is true, however, both Sasha’s and Rock’s faces are specifically cute in panel 3
If I’m right in thinking “spec script” means that it tells all the specs about the dog food…yow. O_O; Sasha, don’t let us down, girl!
That is . . . completely incorrect
If it helps the confusion, I think you can safely eliminate the word “spec” in your mind and it will still make sense. It’s not quite as funny because it doesn’t really communicate as clearly, but the joke is still there.
A spec script is basically a screenplay written on speculation (that someone may buy it) rather than on commission
Wait, Macy’s parade? We now need a giant Sasha-shaped balloon!
Or a float of Max with his “Max wants a balloon” face.
OK, I ran into someone on another forum who claimed to hear people[’s posts as voices.
I asked her what talking ferrets sounded like.
She said they sounded like Joe Pesci.
Now, I’m a philistine who doesn’t watch movies or TV much, so I had to check that out on YouTube.
And, you know, it works. It really does.
Mostly I hear the Warner brothers. And the Warner sister.
But they’re not related…odd…
They so sound like Mr.T. At least the Brown one
No, Keene sounds like Roger Moore.
which one’s keene
He so sounds like steve carell
Rock: Did you really expect this to last more than 4 seconds??
Sasha: It took 2 hours to write, I figured it would take 2 hours to read
Yay for Futurama references!
At least someone has enough culture to get it
Those “Bong, Bong” effects kinda road-runner zip in lines.
…or maybe that’s just me.
I love panel three. X3 so cute!
I concur and agree whole-heartedly! =3
*Runs-off to make a Rock avatar out of panel 3 Rock*
The excitement in his face, go for it!
Here it is!
Well explains how the scripts for thoes ’spoof movies’ are made.
Hey! The production assistant stole Fox’s scarf bandanna thing!
OMG It really does look like it xD
We must take it back!
