    Was hoping for more king. oh well Spot ( the super dog) will suffice. :)

    • rtlstien

      Yes, King is very interesting. I wonder if his spine was broken during the power outage…

      • netherwolf

        Maby that’s why we see him “not” so often,cuz he still need medical assistance x3

        • Dissension

          Or it could be that there are a lot of characters and King’s not even the focus of the comic. x3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Well he should be!

          • silverfang16

            Again I will point this out, if he shows up all the time it won’t be special anymore!

      • Lite

        What in the heck. Meh. It happens

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      King is nice but he’s not super powered or capable of spoofing other comic genres.

    • Dissension

      Alt-Text: Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as punching

    • Clairvoyant Legacy

      Perhaps the fandom’s intense ‘liking’ for King had put Rick ill at ease.

    • Mettlebird

      Yeah, king is awesome, but I support P + G! I want to see more Grape!!!

    • Foxstar

      Both King and Grape were in the last arc. Enough wishful thinking, back on topic.

  2. rtlstien

    Anything can be resolved with punching! ANYTHING!

    • Blaze

      Except your taxes…

      Believe me, I’ve tried…

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        Chuck Norris does his taxes by punching.

        • natranr

          In Soviet Russia, Taxes Punch Chuck Norris.
          Good thing Chuck doesn’t go to Soviet Russia.

          But In soviet Russia, Soviet Russia Goes to Chuck Norris.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            In Chuck Norris, Soviet Russia dies a horribly painful death by punching.

  3. Zero159

    Punching solves everything.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      da correct amount of pressure applied to sum1’s face solves everything :3

      • netherwolf

        Falcon Slap ;D

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        yayz fer violence :3

  4. Dissension

    “Here, let me try again. ‘Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as… punching?’”


    It’s always nice to see Spot, but when will Nefarious Villains make a return, eh?

  5. IceKitsune

    The Alt text was great and I love Stripes look in panels 5 and 7

  6. GameCobra

    I don’t think anyone minds Rick considering this is all Peanut’s doing and not yours.

    Wait a minute… that makes no sen~ *slap*

    • sonic id furreh!!!


    • Mettlebird

      *falcon PAUNCH!!!*
      heh. HEH. HEHEHEEHEHEH!!!! *pulls out ravenous, rabid, cannibalistic midget from back pocket and throws at face*
      OH DEAR GOAT I HAVE LOST IT….wait, did i just say “DEAR GOAT?”
      ….someone, shoot me now. i BEG of you!!!

  7. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    Yay, I gets me a new storyline to voice in the Housepets Radio Show!!!
    (no, this is not off topic, as I will be the voice of Spot)

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      yayz for u :3

    • The Wolf Kin

      Just as a question, where can I listen to said radio show?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        Look at it on the forums under fan projects. It’s not done yet, though.

        • natranr

          Will it be upload as podcasts to Itunes or something? do you still need voices?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            check it on de forums :P

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I don’t know. And yes, we do. Now check the forums before we get yelled at for going off topic

          • Dissension

            The gentleman speaks wisely.

  8. Snowmon

    The real PBS should broadcast this. It’s better than what they have out now. Spot’s like Looney Toons with bad art. Peanut is a jeanious!

  9. MKarrow

    Oh dear, SPINNING evil?! That can’t be good.

    • Dissension

      Spot (Superdog) is actually explaining how he was able to foresee an event using his super-vision when normally that’s not how it works.

      • MKarrow

        Ah, I see… -_-

        Although spinning evil would be quite the problem, no?

  10. The Wolf Kin

    Woohoo! Spot arc! I love these!

  11. Absol

    The Spot comics seem to be improving too, I like this.

  12. Tha Housedog

    Slap slap slap.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      slapity-slap slap :3

      • natranr


        • MKarrow


          • sonic id furreh!!!


          • Krzeszny

            Krakov! I win ^^
            actually, we write it “Krak√≥w” (city in Poland)

            P.S. C-C-C-Combo Breaker!!!

    • Frank

      Stripe used doubleslap!
      … It’s not very effective

      • darkgloomie

        Spot (superdog) is confused!

        Spot (superdog) flinches!

  13. netherwolf

    lol,look at panels 1-3 and think of the music in the film 300..EPIC

  14. ReCreate

    I lol’d at the 7th panel. xD

  15. BlueAnubis

    Oh Spot (Superdog), there’s no need to brood. As long as you have spinning and punching available, there is nothing you can’t do! That… a squintillion other super friends, and a super girlfriend (who is most definetly, obviously, and unequivocaly, not a cat)

  16. anon_omis

    Alt text plz!

  17. Elwood Blutarsky

    Love the lampshading on the muscles.

  18. anon_omis

    I need to go back and read all the spot (the superdog) strips

  19. funnman501

    lol slap slap

  20. Elwood Blutarsky

    Spot would let Stripe get hurt, even while punching him. Spot loves that cat, err, dog who looks like a cat.

  21. Elwood Blutarsky

    Wouldn’t let Stripe get hurt, sorry I’m on an iPod

  22. RegularBird

    Hurray for more Spot!

    And his punching. Hopefully.

  23. huntersunday

    get a hold of your self punching and frying pans solve everything

    • nukedude51

      dont count out rolling pins XD

    • FinalSilence

      Brooms do too!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      and boots to the head.

  24. Argent Stonecutter

    *le sigh*

    • MKarrow

      For what purpose doth this this sound of sighing appeareth, Sir Stonecutter?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Not much of a “spot” fan.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          ’sigh’ lol

        • IceKitsune

          I kind of agree with you Argent, but sometimes they can be fun to read. Only sometimes however.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            On the plus side, I got a great new kangaroo avatar in SL.

          • Frank

            You made a Rick Griffin Kangaroo?
            in 3D?
            For Second Life?

            Okay, so it’s technically not a “Rick Griffin Kangaroo”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It is kinda Rick-Griffin-ish, now you mention it. It was made by the awesome Satch Flan, though I had to add the hopping animation myself.

    • Foxstar

      Back on topic.

  25. Firewolf

    And Slapping. :D Who’s your daddy?

    • anon_omis

      Become another person

  26. Tahoe

    I’m still waiting for a Spot the SuperDog spinoff comic ;)

  27. Draco_2k

    “You’re a SUPERHERO!”

  28. WingedWolfGirl

    *Comments on the muscular of Spot.*

    Cool, Spot got toned-up! :D

  29. Salenstormwing

    If you can punch TIME till it breaks, then punching something is a valid form of problem solving.

    • CaptainPea

      You have to help me save the world… FROM ITSELF

  30. Rocket Knight boy

    i brood while i spin

    • CaptainPea

      Multitasking saves time

      It might be helpful to punch at the same time to save a little more

  31. anon_omis

    Punching is pretty diverse

  32. FreeFull

    I was wondering when the side comic would go away and we’d get back to the main Spot storyline!

  33. Keenan

    I’m just guessing you like doing these because they’re easier.

    • Naylorfan90

      And, ya know…he likes the characters? And superhero stuff?

      • darkgloomie

        clearly, the number of reasons for doing something is inversely proportional to the effort it takes to do it.

        Which may not be wrong, but it’s kinda sad to view the world like that.

    • CaptainPea

      Well, sorta. There’s a lot more jokes packed into each panel, and they’re twice normal size. I’m not gonna put words in Rick’s mouth, but I’m guessing they’re a break for the art and a challenge for the writing.

      I like them, personally, I’ve never quite understood the unhappy response they often get. It takes the comic to a more absurd place than it is usually allowed to go.

  34. Darcin

    The only way to stop this power is to use Spot’s never-before-seen Super Weaving power to create a net of dilithium-tetroxide-pentydragen! SCIENCE.

  35. Naylorfan90

    Love slap! Baby love slap!

    *ducks from thrown vegetables*

  36. Kitch

    Yay Bright Slap! x3

  37. nukedude51

    i need to start setting an alarm clock i hate not bieng the top 50 to comment

    • Foxstar

      What does it matter? A commenter is a commenter, the number means completely nothing.

  38. namelessone

    Silly spot, everything can be solved by punching

  39. gaboris

    Yaaay for Spot(superdog) arc! Don’ worry Rick alot of us love these as well so just keep it up. ;)

  40. Dude Mc.Mann

    The adventures of filler comic

  41. CaptainPea

    Despite being even further fictional than the rest of the characters, Stripe is one of my favorites.

    • natranr

      I’m guessing Stripe is Grapes comic counter part?

      • darkgloomie

        no, she isn’t. Because she’s totally not a cat. She’s a dog. And Spot (superdog)’s girlfriend. Any relation with real characters is purely coincidental, and theories about whether Peanut is really Spot and any other character is somebody he knows are speculations.

        Ah, who am I kidding?

  42. Jorbs3210

    It looks like Peanut’s been getting better at writing these things…

  43. Destingun

    :o i wonder wat spot saw could it have been theevil mushroommen from mars

  44. Profesor Rod

    Wow. Stripe slapping Spot.

    I know she has superpowers, but… this is like slapping Superman O.o

    • Indagare

      Lois Lane I think slapped Superman once. She’s probably the only human on Earth who could actually make Superman move his head when she slaps him.

  45. FerreTrip

    Don’t worry, Rick–I love these comics lampooning Western superhero comics, too. Can’t wait for more fun! ^^

    “Spinning was involved” is my favorite line in this, by the way.

  46. Jennifer the Dark

    I love Superdog and his spinning ability :D

  47. CalaverX11

    This is just the first strip and this is already my favorite Spot arc ever.

    • CaptainPea

      I dunno, The Adventures of Stripe is a classic, especially the ending.

  48. Ronto

    I was hoping for some more King. Personally, I got bored of Spot (super dog) quite some time ago, so need less to say, I was rather disappointed with yet another Spot comic :/

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      hold your tongue, spot slanderer.

    • Foxstar

      The comic is Housepets, not “King’s Storytime”

      Plus King was just in the last arc, remember?

      • Dissension

        What he said.

      • Jennifer the Dark

        I don’t want to seem rude, but that would be a funny arc…again, sorry if I seem rude…

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Housepets was last week, this week the comic is the adventures of Spot (superdog).

      • Ronto

        I only said that I was hoping for some more King, and that I was bored of Spot. o.o My own opinion, of course. I’m not saying the entire comic should revolve around King.

  49. Shady Kitsune

    Problems not solvable through the manly way of PUNCHING?!
    What madness is this?!

    • darkgloomie

      This! Is! HOUSEPETS!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        This! Is! SPOT!

        • Shady Kitsune


          • Jennifer the Dark

            This is SPARTAH!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            yes, that was the joke.

  50. loomCAT

    There’s so many jabs at the superhero genre in this strip… I can’t begin to count them.

    But I guess that’s the point of the Spot (Superdog) arcs.

  51. Hoheh

    Spot and Stripe are made for each other.

    • xhunterko


      • Hoheh

        You…have a point.

  52. xhunterko

    Is a washing machine involved somewhere?

  53. Awhiteandblacklove

    Ha now this is funny,And Argent Stonecutter,I still want to know what you meant by sounds like benneton.

  54. Fidelo

    Not that thisis in anyway relavent, but is Daisy’s(dog) entire purpose to make fun of Daisy(human) from mario cart, because all Human Daisy says in that game is “Hi, I’m Daisy”

  55. Trefoiler

    I love these two. And Monty Python, assuming that was even the reference.

    Even if it weren’t, it stirs the reference deep within me. For there is reference in all of us. In everything that is a thing. You must only learn to listen.

    Please and thank you, Rick! :D
