    I Tiger, eatin’ everything in sight again.

    • CannonFodder

      Tiger and friends will be right back after these commercial messages.

      • RegularBird

        This only makes me wish it was a real show.

        • yoyodude

          Your mind makes it real *viggle viggle*

          • netherwolf

            Looking at that last panel i think it’s the last piece of icecream.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          Rick should do an animated version, though I know it’s too much to ask of someone who has a life.

          • FuRrY321

            People in the forum could do it! That’s what they are doing (or trying to do) for the comic TwoKinds!

            But not me, I know nothing about 2D animation, and very little about 3D animation…

          • netherwolf

            It would be nice to see an animated housepets video,in fact there is one .This shows that there are people,who try and keep trying to do something this complicated.We can see that it’s only pictures taken from the comics,but it’s still kinda cool.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            the forums members could just post videos of their auditions for the voices. If it ever takes off, we could become famous.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            at least a video with pictures of comics with readings of the dialog. Each storyline can be an “episode”

          • Z-Zman

            I bet if Rick goes to animation school or something and sell the idea to a TV show or make a special thing on this site, blah blah blah, you get the point.

          • netherwolf

            Yeah but Rick is best at drawing comics,someone else has to take this difficult task, maybe Rick needs an apprentice,i don’t know it’s just an idea.I would volunteer to this task but i’m still too young and i’m still learning the basics of drawing with photoshop cs4.Maybe in a year or so if there’s any progress i’d help in any possible way.

          • AflacMan13

            If anyone ever does do a vid of Housepets then the first few episodes should go up on The site is especially for home made flash movies.


          • Tha Housedog

            There’s something called the Housepets Radio Show that they’re working on on the forums that…does what its name implies.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I need to record some lines.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            however, I lack the privacy to record said lines, so I may not get around to it for a while.

    • Jagy

      TIGER IS SPY!!!!!!!

  2. IceKitsune

    lol Tiger always wanting to eat every XD

    • IceKitsune

      everything* :P

    • RegularBird


    • Challenger01


      • Val Kilmer Batman

        That was, like, five tubs of ice cream dude.


        • Val Kilmer Batman


          • Chip Uni

            …and that’s terrible.

          • anon_omis

          • anon_omis

            ROFLMAO ROFLMAO ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!
            i didnt expect ANYONE to really respond to that but man, you guys are just SO full of WIN!!!!!!!!

          • Snow

            yeaaa that’s pretty much normal here

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            i considered starting the continuation of the countdown, but felt like I shouldn’t. however, I was fully okay with continuing it after someone else.

          • AflacMan13

            If I find a countdown I shall always try to finish it.

  3. Two_Twig

    No argument there

  4. RegularBird

    Heh and he still eats it.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Would you wanna eat ice cream after a dog had been eating it right out of the tub?

      • Spirit Studios 2010

        Well… dogs do have cleaner mouths. Right?
        For the love of all that’s good and pure please tell me I’m right!

        • anon_omis

          Mythbusters tested that and your right… Well, at least cleaner than Adams mouth

        • Expletive Deleted

          I think it depends on the dog.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Depends on the definition of “clean”. It’s a different bacterial ecosystem. Just because it’s a simpler one doesn’t mean it’s better for you.

          • AflacMan13

            Dogs have the nasty habit of consuming their own fecal matter. IOW they poop and then munch it… not cleaner than my mouth… EVER.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I seriously hope that this tendency has been overlooked in the Housepets universe.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Mmmmm… gram negative bacteria…

          • anon_omis

            my dog doesnt do that, but then again, she is retarded

          • Snow

            how reetardeded? bet my uncles beat yours 8\

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        my dad lets ,y dog lick his fork and continues to use it

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent


        • Valerio

          When I’m having my meals, I spoonfeed my dogs with my own spoon/fork, then keep on using it without problems.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You people!

          • Frank

            You ferret!

          • MrMutt

            I let my dog finish the ice cream (i.e. lick the bowl) when I’m done with it. My mom’s dog would go around and casually lick everyone’s food so that they’d give him the rest of the food.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Ferrets are people too!

            PS: Frank likes cilantro.

          • Frank

            You’re just trying to get him to join, aren’t you?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Fools! Lengua tacos with cilantro and onions are mucho bellissimo.

          • Z24

            If you wanted to say “Very delicious” in spanish at the end, you missed by a mile…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            A confirmed multilinguist, I fear
            Found conditions for flirting severe
            For a girl hardly knows
            The response to a beau’s
            “Bitte couchez avec mich, my dear”.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I took French for a couple of years,
            but I quit because if my fears
            of my grades getting low
            so I’m afraid I don’t know
            the meaning of that phrase which appears
            (my avatar is fitting for this comment)

          • AflacMan13

            Bunch of weirdos did write;
            A crazy sermon that night.
            And from their minds did it rain;
            Cheezy wind and ice tea brains.
            The Zombies did march;
            right through the yellow arch.
            And MceeDees they did consume;
            like an insequential vaccum.
            And on that night so strange and bleak;
            Oh my the havoc they did wreak.
            So if you are feeling all lonely and parched;
            Be certain to make not a sound.
            Or on that night you wil have found;
            That the Zombies will once again have munched and marched.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            two limericks these posters did write,
            but the poem that you wrote on this night
            in conjunction with those,
            the pattern under your nose,
            your poetry just don’t fit right.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            There once was a man of Purdue
            Whose limericks stopped at line two.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            there once was a man who didn’t understand the proper form of a Limerick.
            he didn’t know the rhymes.
            he was very unsure
            of the proper number of syllables,
            he wrote this one.

          • anon_omis

            @ AflacMan13: “the monster mash” is looping in my head now!

          • Snow

            llew neht taht mees doog i sseug tub si lasrever hsilgne yna seu rof tahw mi ton gniyas¿

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I’m confused by the words that you type,
            but I am not the kind to gripe.
            your comment’s absurd
            but I’ll get the last word.
            look out for my weapon: lead pipe.

      • RegularBird

        Yes, yes I would.

  5. Chip Uni

    But… but… it’s not a pizza!

  6. Challenger01

    Ice cream.. breaks all laws of science and logic… plus.. who eats something cold when it’s already cold outside?!

    • RegularBird

      You’d be surprised.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        *raises hand*

        • anon_omis


          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I believe you mean “Ditto,” as “Dido” is the name of a singer. :P

          • Tiani

            While SomeRandomGeek is quite correct in his statement of Dido as a modern(?) singer, Dido is also one of the main characters in Henri Purchell’s opera Dido and Aeneas
            (Dido’s Lammment or When I’m laid in Earth is truly heartbreaking, and sung in an operatic style more common prior to the pompous Baroque operas we are so used to today).

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            fancy ^_Q

          • anon_omis

            I eithered spelled it the way I say it or my iPhone autocorrected it

          • Tha Housedog

            I hate autocorrect with a passion.

          • anon_omis

            its nice most of the time since i cant spell my way out of a cardboard box

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            yes, but auto correct doesn’t understand context.

    • Icharus

      Ice cream is a year-around food for me. I don’t care if it’s below freezing outside

    • The Wolf Kin

      I’ll eat ice cream all year long. I actually save those 2 ft long freezies until the winter because I find they taste better when everything else is also cold.

    • Riplash4ever

      You’ve obviously never worked in fast food before, ice cream sales always increase when its freezing outside, just like they do when its hot.

    • Valerio

      That’s TIGER foh ya!

    • FuRrY321

      I personally enjoy eating/drinking (?) Iced Cappuccinos when it’s freezing outside, not just when it’s warm out! I don’t do well with ice cream overall (lactose intolerant)… though, if it’s soy (So Good) ice cream, well then… let the eating begin!

    • MrMutt

      I do. With hot fudge and whip cream. yummy.

    • manic

      A nice warm Latte in the cold?
      I could have hypothermia in the North Pole on PLUTO and I’d still have a Frappaccino!

      Lattes are more in style during the summer.

  7. yoyodude

    That’s our Tiger…

  8. zero159

    It will melt in Tiger’s mouth.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I knew it! Melting is TOTALLY an issue, guys!

      This being is a genius.

  9. ZV

    EW butterscotch ripple?!

    Tiger has no taste!

    • Challenger01

      You mean “Buttersconch Fripple”?

    • Two_Twig

      “Butterstouch Fripple”, which, as we all know, is a delicacy amongst gods

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Look again, it appears to be Butterscotch Fripple.

      • Rick Griffin


        • Challenger01

          You question my (Air Force authorized) better than normal vision?! that does not look like a “t”, but maybe the Air Force was wrong *gasp*

          • Dissension

            No, it’s pretty clearly the letter “T.” *peers*

          • gaboris

            It’s “butterstonch” all right… Whatever that is. XD

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            delicious is what it is.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          HP-branded brand of broccoli fudge ripple with hot buttered champagne glaze!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            as I said, delicious.

        • Frank

          Horray for lawyer-friendly misspellings!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t think Butterscotch is a trademark.

          • Salenstormwing

            Because Poor Literacy is KEWL!

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        I said it first, but an iPod touch is difficult to comment with. Also, we all read it differently.

      • netherwolf

        I wonder if it’s cheat..I’ve never eaten butterscotch icecream ;X

  10. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    There’s always danger of ice cream melting. What if a gas line explodes of a ferret mis- aims his flamethrower?

  11. rtlstien

    Don’t do anything rash Jerry! We really don’t want PETA to come back!

  12. Private Elliot

    Looks like someone’s completely missing the point.

    • Private Elliot

      Crap, forgot to use other email.
      Eh, I guess it doesn’t really matter.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Wow. That avatar changes in te time it took for me to post two comments.

        Also, Stripe avatars, UNITE!

        Also, Stripe: totally not a cat. Just reminding everybody else.

      • Frank

        Is.. is that a child Sakido avatar?

  13. Flintfang

    Ice cream time does not wait, Be it 100 degrees or 0 degrees. That’s my philosophy

    • anon_omis

      Is that F or C?

      • FuRrY321

        Celsius. 100 degrees (boiling point) or 0 degrees (freezing point).

  14. Val Kilmer Batman

    I know that cold weather always makes me want ice cream. Not butterscotch fripple though. Ew.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Botterstonch Fripple, sorry.


      Also, I keep forgetting that time I said I’d stop saying “also” all the time.

      Also, I’m using this avatar because of radioactive ice cream, yum.

  15. Russiarules1

    I eat ice-cream in winter time… BECAUSE WINTER DOESN’T EXIST HERE >:V !!!
    Anyways, that is the ol’ Tiger I know, he will never change.

    I think…

    Buttercup, baby!
    Just don’t let me down (let me down)
    Fa, La, la, la, la…

    • Alex M.

      Eating Ice-cream is winter time is the best, it last more and it doesn’t melt. |:D
      Oh yeah, ALSO NO WINTER >:( !!!

  16. Icharus

    I completely agree with Tiger’s line of reasoning. Panel four pretty well sums it up

  17. Val Kilmer Batman
  18. Corodan

    A dog with ice cream is fine too.

  19. The Wolf Kin

    Dang, I think I like eating ice cream in the winter more then I like eating it in the summer.

  20. Gero

    Es un buen pretexto xD… si no es porque tambien hace frio XD ese tiger tragon =P

    • Frank

      Translation: It’s a good excuse xD… if not because it’s also cold XD
      That Tiger is a glutton :P

  21. LegendaryHero

    Oh hey it’s that vertical background thing again. I oughta check how many strips you’ve used that in.

    • CaptainPea

      High Five for noticing that.

  22. Keenan

    LOL… *walks away*

  23. Radio Viewer

    Tiger should have said that he needs the fats/calories in the ice cream to help keep himself warm.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Or, conversely, he could have said that he needs to lower his core temperature in order to lower his infrared signature and not stand out to predators. There is absolutely no way that Jerry could have argued with that logic.

      In fact, he would probably be rendered speechless by the SHEER, CONCENTRATED INTELLIGENCE in that statement.

      • Naylorfan90

        For that post, I love you. :|

  24. ArtemisVulpes

    Oh Tiger you.

  25. Val Kilmer Batman

    Tiger, you don’t understand!

    You have to MAKE it melt, so that you can drink it out of champagne glasses!

  26. Ryufire

    Eating Ice Cream in the cold freezing winter tastes better than eating it in the summer :D
    Yet Tiger walks away eating it anyway is just priceless! ^^

    How will Babylon Gardens cope of not having their hot cup of coffee in the morning?

  27. Firewolf

    Wow, Tiger’s gonna die, at least that’s what the fist is saying in the last panel.

  28. Keenan

    Tiger obviously loves Haagn Dasz

  29. ZincChloride

    mmmmmmmm… a cheek full of ice creem *cringes* my sister’s kids can chew on ice like it’s the end of the world. my teeth hurt just thinking about ice creem directly on teeth.

    • anon_omis


  30. netherwolf

    No there’s a dog that likes his icecram,but Tiger’s really missing the point.

    • anon_omis

      Same here

      • anon_omis

        Sorry wrong comment

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          I hate when that happens

          • Z-Zman

            Me too.

          • Z-Zman

            Sorry wrong comment.

            Ouch, there’s something sticking out at the bottom of my eye.
            (I know it’s actually a monocle)

  31. CheshireDCat

    I like ice cream…but the question is what kind is he eating?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      read the container in the first panel.

      • CheshireDCat


  32. gaboris

    Oh Jerry are you really THAT naive? Don’t you know tiger yet? XD

  33. Valerio

    Tiger FTW.
    Also, very cute Tiger in this comic

  34. Shiranai

    Ok I have to ask.
    Has anybody ever secretly eaten ice cream without taking it out of the container?

    • Naylorfan90

      Okay whoops, responded to the wrong post. The response to Valerio was supposed to go here.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        I hate when that happens.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Certain members of my family do. I consider it Not Done.

      • Shiranai

        I admit there were a few times long ago when I snuck a few bites with a spoon and put it back in the freezer.
        Don’t tell my parents. >_<

    • Tha Housedog

      Yes, yes, and yes.

    • Val Kilmer Batman




      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I mean, come on, who hasn’t eaten a pint of Ben and Jerry’s?

        Or half of the gallon of French vanilla…

        I was hungry! Don’t look at me like that!

    • darkgloomie

      wait, you’re supposed to take it OUT of the container?

      (jk, I do it though, usually when there isn’t much left)

  35. Valerio

    I’m beginning to wonder how MUCH does Tiger weighs in the family budget…

    • Naylorfan90

      *shifts nervously, then slowly raises a hand*

  36. Salenstormwing

    Well, at least he had good intentions. And then that gave way to butterscotch ice cream. Sounds like a logical progression.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      read the comments, It’s butterstonch.

      • Salenstormwing

        But I don’t know what a butterstonch is, so I’m going to imagine it’s butterscotch instead.

  37. Yojimaru

    Who else but Tiger? *cues Quagmire song, tiger version*

    • Valerio

      Now you gave me a headache!

  44. Viper197

    Cookies N’ Cream is the best ice cream flavor

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Chocolate chip cookie dough. Mocha java chip. Rum raisin.

    • Alex M.

      Mango & Chocolate |:D

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      it’s alright, but I prefer something a little more chocolaty, the Chocolate X-Treme Blizzard from Dairy Queen

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Moolennium Crunch

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Or Genocide By Chocolate. For when Death By Chocolate isn’t enough.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          so much chocolate, it kills your entire race.

    I’m glad they deleted my last comment, I don’t know WHAT I was thinking when I submitted it!

    Now he’s just making up reasons.

    Poor Tiger though, his eating disorder comes from the humiliation of his name.

    I live in the Sonoran Desert, so if our power goes out, I have a perfectly good reason to raid the freezer. ^w^

    • Frank

      I can see it now: “Why are you cooking twenty hamburgers, a chicken, and a TVdinner while eating ice-cream?”

      • anon_omis

        My question is why arent you, Frank?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          because the 40 steaks are taking up his kitchen.

          • Frank

            Yup, The steaks are too high.
