I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and that it filled your stomachs with food and your refrigerators with increasingly distressing odors.
It’s a rick balloon!
i know it’s de best 2 put dat der X3
Alt-Text: There was NO WAY I could make a comic referencing the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and not do that.
The parade was kind of bland this year :/
ai didn’t wach it so ai woodn’t no
It’s a Rick cameo!
“Look, mommy, I’m in the parade!”
“Yes, we’re happy you could go to New York; stop rubbing it in already.”
“No, I mean I’m actually in the parade!”
That’s not actually Rick, but a character he uses for his avatar on the forum.
What is it? Some kind of Pikachu?
I wonder if its related to a joke of that “rick rolling” on macy’s a few years ago.
Oh yes! I’m all out of internets, so you win a no-prize.
i think rock is was a little stressed
happy thanksgiving everyone!
MERRY TURKEYDAY XD!!!
Happy try to eat as much food as possible before your relatives do day
Happy Black Friday, actually…Thanksgiving’s over!
…….. MERRY LATE TURKEYDAY
What are you talking about?
I’m still eating turkey with my family…
well I was until I left the dinner table to go and comment on this comic.
Any who Happy Thanksgiving! Or rather Belated Thanksgiving! (depending on where you live)
For me it is actually 11:57 thanksgiving is almost over
Okay, thanksgiving should be now completely over. Hope you guys had a wonderful time!
When it comes to Thanksgiving, “the morning after” is never a bad thing. ^w^
Yes it can be a bad thing! especially for me.. I got a little carried away with the drinks…. one thing I’m not giving thanks for is hangovers
I dropped a huge glass bowl full of yams…big mess, but kind of funny
OKAY now I want a arc of whatever show that is cuz that little dude is adorable
I think Pokemon…. not to sure
To clear up any confusion, that is a Ponbon balloon. Ponbon is a member of a species called Danroo that Rick created for another project. It has nothing to do with Poke’mon. You can find more information in Rick’s deviantArt gallery.
Iinspired by Pokemon though, you’ll notice early on drawings of Pikachu characters in his FA gallery further back.
Actually the main inspiration was an unrelated chinchilla-like character that I decided to color yellow because other colors didn’t seem to work
And there you have it
I step down then. Apparently I was wrong…I love being proven wrong though actually, it is just another way to learn the truth. =D Chinchillas R Awesome! =D
lol I love the Ponbon balloon I should have saw that coming. I can’t believe they lost the rest of the footage. I have to wonder how that happened?
I don’t know. I thought they had photographic memory. I guess it was never developed.
Or it had to be cut short for getting Sasha out of the suit.
PHOTOGRAPHIC memory…never DEVELOPED…
*facepalms, then stands and applauds*
I think it’s more like when a kit tells his teacher he left his homework, lost it, or it got destroyed, to cover up for having forgotten to do it. So no, I don’t think they actually lost anything
Uh, “kit” is a typo (or does the student eat his own homework?)
He’s a ferret, so kit is appropriate.
Rick makes a cameo I see XD
Also – “stock photo” lol
Made me laugh
ai just wish de text bubble wasn’t over da buloon face
To use as a gravatar?
And that was fast getting that new gravatar :/
yah i wanted to get this befor sum1 else did X3
In 3 minutes?!?! o.o
like speedy lightin
before i did…
yea we know that would haunt you XD
This is where creativity comes in, though…
I actually thought you were Rick for a moment. Maybe this isn’t such a good idea
The solution is simple. Get enough people to request the pre-bubble version as wallpaper (I know I’d like one)
A wide angle shot of the parade? That would be awesome.
The stressed face of Rock XD
*immediately buys fifty bags of Canine Cibble*
*even though he doesn’t have a dog*
didn’t u say dat last taime ?
sort of: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/11/24/true-art-is-weird/#comment-54021
Old Spice remake is worth 10 bags;
using Sasha in a body stocking is worth 50
Look now, the Body stocking is now made of rawhide…
You know you’ve just planted a bomb that might explode when a mod gets here?
Yes, that’s how they’re made.
And justice for all
Take off every zig!
But that’s for great justice!
Are you implying my justice for all isn’t great?
All your beats are belong to us.
I wonder what the commercial look like in an animated video form?
I’d love to see that.
Awesome way to fit in a pokemon Rick!
that rick not ah pokemon >.<
Is Cute! With a capital C in fact!
Check his Deviantart profile :3
Opps heres the link
wutev it’s wut he usess
Ha! Sugimori wishes he could come up with more characters like that!
This commercial makes me want to escape Canine Cibble.
Bwahaha! Rock is so frizzy! (I assume it’s from him double facepalming until his nose almost went flat)
I didn’t see the actor dog in this…is he there? (or is Sasha counting toward that, also?) Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade needs to put that balloon in next year…definitely.
He’s cutting her out of the body glove. You can see his hands.
They dont believe in pokemon T_T
It’s not a Poke’mon.
Oh i fail then T_T
also, Pokemon doesn’t believe in you. so there.
I still don’t understand how see got into the suit in the first place
And gravatar is familiar… i forget
i beleve it’s from jaynaylor i think it’s de better day story
Oh ya now i remember
Oh hey, nice gravatar! =D
Rolled it on like a big sock?
Reminds me of the time I did a school project, it was somehow like this…
I got a 9/10! lol, I got a 9 and I didn’t even study, I’m awesome…
By the way, I hope you guys eat that turkey or Russiarules1 will be mad >:(
Happy Thanksgiving day
Thanks Russiarules1, I did have turkey and I *gobbled* it all up. lolz…. -_-;
Thanks bro… except my thanksgiving dinner consisted of pizza and hotwings… nonetheless it was great!
i luv de on-screen thing on de panels
Rock has a crazy hairdo in panel 8.
I’ve had that hairdo. That is the hair of a man (or ferret) who’s spent all night editing stuff for TV. Trust me on this.
FTW! If that baloon was in the parade, I might have not missed it. Hey! Here’s an idea for all you artsy people who CAN draw, someone try to draw a Housepets! Float! =D
Happy Thanks Giving Y’all! =D
You mean a parade car? or a balloon?
That would make it a parade car. However, I’ve seen Macy’s balloons be called floats before.
I’ve never encountered the term “parade car” before, and I’ve never heard of floats being used to refer to anything but … well … the things in the wikipedia article.
Rick made the ballon, now let us see that Float/Parade Car =D (What country are you from?)
Parade car actually refers to a actual motor vehicle you can actually tell is a motor vehicle (little to no decoration) that appears in a parade. These are usually busses or trucks/lorries with people riding on the roof (more common when busses were designed for people to put their luggage on the roof) or convertibles celebrities wave from. By extension, I’m applying it to all motor vehicles appearing in parades, because I needed to describe a float by another name.
As for balloons being called floats, see for example every single caption here: http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Photo_Coverage_84th_Annual_Macys_Thanksgiving_Day_Parade_20000101 (cue “reporters are morons” thread)
Reporters are always in season.
Okay that baloon nade my day again and that’s a big word after my HDD died in my laptop and lost all of my stuff so thx Rick… I’m such a wreck in my head cuz of it that I’m blabbering sorry. XP
So in the end it did turn into an artistic commercial… don’ know why but if I’d get something like this between shows instead of those brainwashed zombies I’d rush to the store. START A REVOLUTION RICK!!!!! XD
Backups are your friend. An ever present comfort in times of trouble.
Yeah I know now that I should’ve made some saves, I hope they’ll be able to get the data back from the disks so I can save them just for sure.
Wonder if Rock wants to try and make another commercial
Rock: Never… Again!
Why not King? He’s got the proper outfits.
haha, i had my thanksgiving last month In Canada, everything happens earlier lol, just like how the opposite happens in Soviet Russia
Aw, for some reason Rock’s ears in the last panel look REALLY adorable to me!
Usually, it’s something I don’t even notice.
It’s the hair
Lolwut? Pikachu float?
omg … the last panel is hilarious :) … i wonder how much better those leftovers would look hehe
Interesting commercial…Just as vague and confusing as commercials ought to be!
And AUTHOR CAMEO FTW!! I mean, seriously, the only thing cuter than a Pikachu float is a Rick float. X3;
Um…I meant “cute” as in “adorable”, ‘course ==^^==;;
*Hits “Back”, waits for it to load, then notices something* Oh! Say, speaking of–Rick, is it okay that in panel 5, there’s no white in Sasha’s cheek tuft?
Oh, and I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! ^_^
Whaaat? That’s all what Cold is used for? Sahsa’s order is to cut through a suit?
What a waste. XD
Maybe that could work… Nah
Hopefully their ad is successful and brings in lots of new customers!
Rick, you egotist. xD
Am I the only one who thinks it looks like Sasha has no eyebrows in panel 2?
and panel 3
Well, um, she’s a dog.
Even so, if you look in panel 6, she has eyebrows.
That’s because she’s a cartoon dog, so her eye ridges get to move around in a way that would imply serious cranial fractures in any real animal.
I think dogs are covered in eyebrow
Yeh, plus body stockings imply full body hat-hair.
When i first saw panel 0 i was like. Is that rick? xD
*looks at you* *looks at the comic*
*looks back at you* *looks back at the comic*
He means Panel 1…
He must be a computer programmer. :p
The commercial was a brilliant masterpiece, and for some reason made sense……..0_0
Sasha’s so silly. Part of why we love her.
This is no AD… THIS IS ART!
Advertisement in Realistic Times?
Dear Rick Griffin: I Just realized it’s the end (or close) To the end of this story arc, I think you should continue the King story Arc. Pretty please do so.
-APERSON WHO COMMENTS
You know, every time we go through part of his story arch it gets CLOSER to the end of King’s story arch. Think about that.
He means that we should squish the juice out of King’s story arc so that we can grow more attached to King until it’s time for King’s story to end…
None of the spirits has actually promised King that he’ll ever get turned back to Joel.
What I mean is that if we go through his arch too often it will get to the end and we will rarely, if ever, see King again.
King’s always got a place wherever cartoon animals are needed for light slapstick and humorous abuse!
I think king is a pretty cool guy, eh gets no respect and doen’t afraid of anythign, (Gigantic Gryphons, white fox things, and Dragons excluded)
No tired memes here please.
And King just had a huge arc not too long ago. Other characters in BG besides the corgi.
There is nothing wrong with a bunch of random vids all put together to get a commercial.
He is clearly not lying.
I’m still learning from you, while I’m making my way to the top as well. I definitely love reading everything that is posted on your blog.Keep the aarticles coming. I enjoyed it
