Wha? No comments?
Oooh something IS wrong with peanut!
poor Stripe, i think she’ll handle this problem aswell xd
Yay Grape and Peanut!!!
I agree. Nice to see what they’re doing behind the scenes
Yes, Peanut, cameras look like that.
Not since the 1970s they don’t!
Yes they most certainly do! What, do you think they just up and destroyed all the old ones? XD
They may not be destroyed,but they’r sertenly not used often ;x
The TV industry doesn’t dispose of anything, especially the cash-strapped public broadcasting agencies. That’s a topic for another location, though.
Heh, “back on topic.”
well these cameras are used in museum as an exhibit
What? The camera icon on every application looks like that! Icons don’t lie!
Not from me, Slash. I’m hiding because I’m still eating.
… How’d I not realize that Stripe was supposed to be Grape… stupid me.
but Stripe isn’t a cat.
CURSES! I was ninja’d!
Why ? Because grammer nazis are always faster in commenting xD
Back on topic.
Yeah she is -shot-
She’s not. Grape is a cat and Stripe is (despite all appearances) not a cat. No relation whatsoever.
Ohhh. I thought that Peanut was to shy to say the Stripe is a cat because she is a catlover… Or am I right?
With the comment that I’m replying now I think that Peanut is doing a sarcasm or something… :S
Sorry, “…to say *that…” “…because *he is a…”
What? Peanut is the artist and Peanut totally says Stripe isn’t a cat! If you can’t trust what the artist says, who can you trust?
Hey! I only say the things I’m trying to connect!
Is that a sarcasm?
Yes, in fact you’re absolutely right. Probably.
Grape looks kinda funny with cheekfur.
It’s winter! Everyone gets cheekfur
Maybe it’s her muzzle length but Grape looks off.
Maybe she still looks cute.
Still as in still winter
And not saying it’s bad at all, just different.
i think its cute
Of course YOU do
why *I* do ?
And lol look below
You’re using Max as an avatar
oh… MAX thinks this too but for other reasons x3
I think it’s adorable x3
Alt Text: “Peanut and Grape feature because lets face it, if these go on longer than a week you complain voraciously”
thanks for the alt x3
So true, rick, yay grape and peanut !
I agree with this Alt too. It happens.
Yes, Rick. Yes we do.
Sadly, I think this Alt is true. No, Spot & Stripe are not considered by the fandom to be major characters, and yes they do seem to be side stories, but they are side stories that are important to one or two of the most primary characters of Housepets! (the second possibly being Grape). While I like ‘main action’ as much as the next guy (though there is no single established plot for the whole of Housepets!, merely multiple main arcs), I don’t see any reason why we can’t take a break from it and just have fun with these characters.
This does, of course, assume that Spot & Stripe are indeed side-characters; with arcs of their own, they may be considered to be main characters alongside King and Bino and some others.
Well there’s about 52 weeks inn a year
the comic updates the times a week
So 57×3= 162 comics a year
Even then we have days where he can’t do it due to whatever reason.
So whenever we have these comics I feel that my already pre-limited number of comics per year is being reduced.
So in short “I want my years worth”
I don’t comment about it of course, but every DAY I see another Spot comic I groan and just wait for the next comic.
Your avy makes this comment EPIC!
By the way, does he want EVERYONE to stop eating ANYTHING? Does that mean we’ve all gotta become anorexic? D8
*munches on a sandwich*
wait, you really mean stop eating anything?
It’s the only way to be sure!
But, but the Bacon! *sobs*
haha, Spot (superdog) is just nervous, thats why he said it this way. This IS a real problem
It sure is.
and the title of the strip… I think stripe’s saying that xD
“If i had a hammer”
“If all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail”.
All Spot has is punching.
sooo every problem for him should be like a punch-bag ? xD
Every problem must resemble the tender cheek of EVIL ITSELF.
Because he’s Spot.
Now that’s a way to fight obesity! ZING!
High Five! … no? Well, I think that’s a funny pun! >:V
…FIGHTING obesity. Never thought of it that way.
Probably because I don’t have Spot’s (superdog) super intellect.
Best PSA ever made. XD
No idea why ppl have probs with these comics, it may not be so artsy, but it’s still fun.
So the concussion isn’t going to be exiting?
we will see
Concussion is a common result of punching.
And it’s certainly a means of exiting.
You make a telling point there, sir!
You know, I can’t even tell if that was on purpose or not…
Maybe Grape looks off because we don’t often see her with her ears back and her eyes narrowed in critisism. Just a thought.
I see that look on cats all the time…
you think she may look ‘off’ due to an eerie moment of realism?
lol still trying to solve it with punching. Also the Alt text is kind of true.
it is SO true, but Rick is to blame himself for that, he’s the one that makes them so cute, we can’t stand a week without them
well Captain Falcon solves EVERYTHING by punching
Best comment ever.
Caption falcon drives a space car and a cruiser
you don’t know what your talking about
go to game school
Rick is reacting to fan rage again
And that’s bad?
YIkes. Is there anything we can do to help. Can we have the fans fixed so as to mellow them out?
Sure. More King.
More King and Lucretia!
More Peanut and Grape relationship development
I meant something to get us tamed on demands like that. This is Mr. Griffin’s comic and he’s more than welcome to write whatever he wants with it. Let’s be frank, he’s way more creative with his characters than we could ever be. Plus as said before the corgi isn’t any good for spoofing superheroes like Spot is. All of the characters have their place and I like seeing all of them get a chance to shine. If the comic was all King and Grapenut (which by the way doesn’t make sense with Max and Tarot in relationships with them already) it would get dull. I love how Rick has a varied cast and uses them all.
No! We can’t be frank! If we were all frank, how would you tell us from the real frank?
Would the real frank please stand up?
It’s “Mouse Mouse Revolution” all over again…
I was just joking! If this is how Rick wants to do HIS comic I’m fine with it
OH GOD THE SERIOUSNESS
make it stop!
*hits self in face with pie*
Hooray for the fetal position!
Yah, I have a new second-favorite-facepalm now.
At times it seems Peanut has no control over his characters, they just seem to write themselves. Then again, I have the same problem when I write. ;3
id you are loosing control over your characters, try this *tosses the Erasergun to BlueAnubis* and don’t blame me if you don’t use it right…
Letting your characters write themselves isn’t a bad thing! I do that as well, and I’ve heard a number of people say the same. Set up the characters and a setting, then let them do the hard part; as a writer, all you’d have to do is write down what happens. Sometimes they’ll encounter situations where they have to make a tough choice. You know full well where it’s going, and it’s not going in any direction you want it to. As a writer, you want to change it. You want her to put down the bottle and not drink the poison because that’s what you, as a person, would do. But that choice is for them to make, not you. It may sound like a weird way of writing, and it is, but a story really feels alive when the characters act for themselves rather than follow a script, don’t you think?
I’m sorry but that was just really durn creepy.
Stephen King writes this way! *flails arms dramatically*
…so, yeah, kinda creepy. X3
preach it, sistah! (or brotha, I dunno)
srsly, though, it’s a fun way to write. My characters usually end up a rambling mess, but when I go look over the story it’s fun to see their train wrecks of a dialogue
I’m a sistah, but I’m such a tomboy gender doesn’t matter to me anymore xD
ANYWAYS. That’s what ends up happening to me as well. I look back on it and I’m like “…when did this happen?” No lie, most of my stuff ends up more like weird fanfictions than anything worth publishing xD
… seeing how a lot of weird fanfiction ends up published (*coughTWILIGHT*cough*) you shouldn’t put yourself down.
*sigh* it’s been too long since I wrote a fanfic. I must finish something…
Hmph! Why can’t we have PSA’s as effective as those?
Two words: verisimilitude
This is your brain…and this is your brain after I punch it. Any questions?
It kinda looks like the style changed a bit
yep, they are little bit more detailed than http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/02/18/back-to-reality/ but that is probably because they are closer
I am (almost) completely sure that Grape is actually doing the same as Stripe, when she saw the last panel, or maybe the opposite?
Maybe…….Just may bee…
i love spots blank stare in the panels i laughed so hard at the face palm to
Spot’s arm might get tired…..
Facial expressions are improving Good job!
The last three panels crack me up.
A very interesting comment on the emo interpretation of complex heroism, and Grape raises a valid point that other people have been raising for years: a hero doesn’t just give up, they work at it! The best ones are those that don’t need those motivational speeches, but that’s become a staple in heroic portrayal.
Awesome comic so far, can’t wait the see the exciting conclusion.
Stripe facepalmed so hard it made her ears grow longer!
Also, “voraciously”? You’re afraid we’re going to devour you?
No, he’s afraid our complaints are going to devour him, a fair fear considering how ravenous the Fan Du- I mean, fandom can be.
but then Spot will punch our complaints, so at least he’s got some security.
But, like obesity, this is a problem that can’t simply be resolved by punching!
… unless Spot does house calls and personally punches every complainer.
I for one welcome our new Rick overlord.
it’s plausible. He did deliver gifts faster than Santa.
Can I do the punching?
Yes you can. Also, I love your pic. :3
Thx, you know what it’s from?
Something very much not on topic.
Don’t do that.
I believe Spot may be accepting donations of new or gently used fists at this time.
Please. Think of the orphans!
No Spot! You’re supposed to say as if you were higered by some major health organization.
This is your everything.
This is your everything on candy.
MY EVERYTHING HURTS!
I don’t complain about Spot comics because I don’t read them. >_>
I think this is probably one of the best approaches to take for any future spot comics. One of the most enjoyable reasons i find about the Spot comics is that we’re getting into the imagination of Peanut here. Although that’s not to say we should have Peanut and Grape in every Spot related arc, i think even Rick notices that a week without the main cast is pretty much torture for the readers @_@
That’s true; perhaps in the future I ought to have at least one or two panels of Peanut and Grape along with
That would detract from Spot the Superdog comics, though. Why would you do that? *peers*
No pandering to the fans. Bad furret.
Hey, Rick can listen to his fans at times. You guys are just afraid of losing your budget!
along with who/what?
THE CURIOSITY IS KILLING ME!
(haha not really, but I’m curious)
Maaaybe somethings wrong … just a hunch
I actually was eating when i read this.
so i stopped.
i didn’t want to get punched.
OH NO! STRIPE HAS NO KNEES!
She isn’t walking like Charlie Chaplin yet, though. Dunno if that’s good or bad.
Well, this is an interesting flaw in Spot: Despite his super-intelligence, he can’t figure his way out of these kinds of situations easily.
And that’s why Reed Richard is deemed useless. With all his super-brain and stuff, the writer just can’t think of a creative solution using the character’s intelligence.
End line: make your superhero stupid.
Maybe there is a hidden Orphanite somewhere near Spot (superdog) …
*looks at potatoe chips and looks back at comic*……It’s so tempting!!!
I’ll take a potato chip… *huff huff* …and GET PUNCH’D!
…sorry, I just HAD to say it.
And so everybody either starved to death or died from super punches.
Stripe sure is NOT an anologue for Grape in Peanut’s comic. >.>
well Stripe is , despite the appearance, not a cat, unlike Grape
Who despite all appearances is a girl BAM
… Is it weird if that last panel reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger?
I can just imagine Spot doing an Arnold impression while saying that line.
It will be cool indeed to see old uncle Arny’s impression made by Stop
Err… Spot (superdog) … sorry, a Typo
Punching can be used to solve all problems. No exceptions.
Well…So far as the Spot comic is concerned…I will consider it as a condition that I have recently coined as the “Neo-Spiderman Syndrome” …where in there is an increasing amount of brooding being done by the Super Heroes….Though I do not know if Super Heroines suffer from this condition as well…However, I believe that modern screenwriters and maybe even comicbook writers have added this notion “Helplessly-Humanity” to the storylines as to say to view/readers that there are even times when Super Heroes/Heroines feel helpless and human….Though the characters (modern character incarnations) always either pep-talk themselves through the problem or have a friend fluff-up their egoes just in the nick-of-time….
Called it. Problem so can be punched. Sorta.
Join us for next week’s exciting conclusion: Wherein the entire population goes to the hospital for Anorexia @_@
Hey, Look. Spot has a tail.
I love their faces in the 4th panel.
Its a first comment of mine on this site, so i’m only going to say… THIS IS THE BEST WEBCOMIC MADE BY ANYONE, ANYWHEN, EVER!!!. I just love what is going on here. Oh and i ship GrapeNut. :3
This is a complaint that there has been too much Grape and Peanut in the last three comics.
I just realized that The Adventures of Spot (Superdog) has way fewer editor’s notes than the average comicbook.
Has anyone else noticed that Peanut’s ear is messed up in the first panel?
are you mentioning that yourself also having a problem rick?
No– see, you guys have it all wrong! Spot (the Superdog)’s super intelligence is not disproven by his inability to find a solution that does not involve punching. Rather, it is actually proven by his ability to simplify and compress even the most complex problem into a punchable form! True genius!!
Also, love the in-comic creative commentary. It’s like a really good pre-packaged stack of deli meat, and all of us are still out here trying to slice it as thin as you do. Delicious.
… I mean Bravo. Bravo!
Dude. How can there POSSIBLY be too much Grape and Peanut in the last three strips, they’ve only been in this one so far!?!?
