Now I wonder. Bino, are you exaggerating? Probably.
Seriously, though, sword fighting with a grizzly, there is no way that happened. Bino, I wish you’d say what really happened.
Good work, Rick, this fits him perfectly, I think.
He did, on the first comic of the arc. It got snagged on a branch and broke. You can’t really blame him that the cause was so horrifically mundane.
Oh, I know, but I’d like to know what happened during the week of computer errors. Still, Bino’s version is sure to be hilarious for its outrageous claims.
Perhaps Max will tell us – if he was there the first time, there’s no way he’ll help Bino keep that version quiet…
At least, not without an appropriate bribe… e.e
Ok I have to ask was this how the arc was going to go originally or is it this way because of the computer problems? Also lol at Bino in the second panel XD
I doubt it. After all, even Rex doesn’t seem to believe it.
No I mean did Rick plan the arc this way before the computer problems (having them record it and what not) or is it this way because of the computer problems.
As Wolf said, I doubt it. Rick probably had to change up some things or completely rewrite the script because of the computer problems.
If its true that’s rather disappointing IMO. I would really like to know what the original plan was then.
Me too. Maybe we can guilt him into doing a text update.
lol You guys are cruel. I’m pretty sure that Rick is going to go through whatever his original plan was, butt with just a couple funny mods.
hate to be a spelling Nazi, but the word you meant to use is “but.” the other spelling can lead to much giggling.
Yeah, I noticed right after I posted it. I WAS hoping no one would notice butt…
as I said, giggling.
Because trees look like grizzly bears nowadays.
Honest mistake! Really!
So bears are godless killing machines and shapeshifters. Colbert was right, watch out.
Bears? Godless? Then how do you explain SHARDIK?
shardik was an cyborg bear (if we are talking about stephen king’s dark tower that is)
Never heard of that Shardik. I’m talking about the bear god from the novel of the same name.
we are reffering to the same thing.
the bear god in the book was a cyborg
Silly movie stars and their super-egocentrism!! and Bino!!!
Good begin for a super-egocentrist film!
What? swordfighting with a grizzly? ridiculous.
everyone knows Grizzlys prefer Chess over fencing.
It is cats who do ridiculous sword fighting! I have proof!
Of course, doing that in this universe probably ends with Grape and a super soaker
Proof Indeed, good show, jolly good show!
Although grape with a super soaker would be bad news for anyone within range, especially bino.
I love Bino’s face look in frame 3
Frame 1 is hilarious
And the fact that he’s still wearing his collar…
Come to think of it, Bino’s practically wearing a Lester face in panel 3. XD
Yay! More fourth wall breaking! \o/
And I love the over-exaggeration of Bino in the second panel. xD
Actually pets having trouble operating a video-camera is perfectly in-universe
But doing it for the readers of Housepets! is not.
Oh yeah such a typical loudmouth style. I can never decide if it’s annoying or funny, but for Bino it just works perfectly! X3
Ehhh, still not a manly as Putin.
Yeah but Putin drives a Lada and Bino doesn’t so it balances out in the canine’s favor.
does bino fish with his collar off?i think not! putin wins
Gah! Naked Putin!
“I is not naked, I has a fishing rod!”
That quote looks oddly familiar
This is just going to get better and better xD
Are Bino’s pupils stuck in “psycho-mode”? XD
And he still has his collar on panel 3…
He refused to do a nude scene
How could this possibly end badly? -_-
Shhh! Don’t jinx it. It always goes bad when somebody says that in the movie… Oh!
I c wut u did thar.
No problem. Jasper will catch that jinx
Only “could”? How “will”!
Ah, but then it isn’t a jinx!
Methinks you jinxed the jinx.
I do sorta wish we had the natural version .
Well, I think it’s hilarious
I wonder if Rex is going to leave the camera alone now? I also wonder who here thinks Bino will somehow lose his spare collar as well during this recap? =3 (and thankfully get it back again.)
Knowing Bino, he probably has a spare for the spare, “because you never how insidious are those who plot against you”
Why do i have the feeling this won’t end well for somebody?
While they’re doing the video recap, they’ll accidentally catch a shot of the Milton Relatives in the background, and for the next three strips we’ll watch Bino and the Miltons having painfully wacky misadventures as they just miss meeting each other while they each try and regain control of the tape (which will turn out to have been accidentally swallowed by a bear).
Could that somebody be Bino ;3 xD
I think it’s the group, I mean, that somebody are Bino and Rex.
Nah, Rex doesn’t deserve it, he’s just big, goofy, cookie-baking Bulldog(right?) and i indeed was referring to Bino
I know, but I think Rex is going to help Bino to do something, and then he will be in a problem too.
And Spot (Superdog) will save him
And his girlfriend (and she is not a cat)
Warning: the comic has a heavy dose of bino’s ego
What’s the half-life of that?
about 1-10 archs that feature him.
His collar is on and he isn’t holding it together… must be rigged good enough why doesn’t he just go home now? I’m lost…
Oh ok I get it now… he’s retelling what happened because Rick’s computer got the gonaherpasyphalaids and crapped out. XP
Thank you X3
what’s a pansy ?..don’t remember the exact meaning for that word ;3
An effeminate and cowardly fellow who can’t take the heat. Probably has a cooking show. “Fruits and nuts: wild cuisine, featuring Shardik”.
You see, this is why you should never let actors direct, let alone direct things they also star in. Now our “whimsy” adventure of personal growth is 2 weeks late, there’s a hole in the 4th wall the size of a semi, and there are ferrets hanging from the chandelier. The last one might have been there to start with though.
Well it would seem that we’ve got a big mess on ou- Hey! stop sliding down the railings! No you can’t make the kitchen into a skating rink! CURSE YOU FERRETS! CURSE YOU!
Why can’t you make the kitchen into a skating rink?
Yeah, it’s fun!
Because you’re not allowed.
By whom, I wonder
By the Universal Order of Mothers.
Because the celestial policy (let’s see if you remember what have I said).
Because they will somehow end up burning down a flooded house.
if anyone can do it, it’s ferrets.
I’m sure the Good Old Dogs Club beat them to it.
I want to say that in the original version, Rex was detained by pets who wish Bino harm?
Any pet who would have, knowingly or not, delayed the return of Rex with Bino’s spare collar is deemed one who means Bino harm in his own twisted mindscape.
at least, that’s my readinf of it
You do know Bino is likely making this up as he goes to stroke his ego right?
That’s crazy talk!
Indeed! He planned it all to stroke his ego! How else would Rex have lines written down for him?
doesn’t make it any less true (as in, he does think the contents of my previous comment)
What I’m saying is, in the original version, not this reenactment, perhaps Rex was to be held up by others whilst searching for a new collar? I’m putting emphasis on his detainment, not on those who detained him.
But this is all a guess. We really have no idea how much Bino is changing the original story.
Technical point – the registration of the background and text-bubble layers seems to be a smidgen off from the frame border layer in some of the frames.
Heh X3 (Though I really do wanna see what was originally planned for this arc. It would be kinda funny to see it played out all like this, though.)
This arc deserves a prize for “Most Flexible Storytelling”
Seriously, this feels like a completely natural development, especially considering it’s Bino after all. I’ll call that empty week a blessing waiting to show itself.
I don’t believe in coincidences, so perhaps the computer crashed at just the right time in the storyline (right at the beginning) for Rick to modify it so.
Or maybe, Rick sabotaged his own computer so he could do this!
I wondered a little about that too!
“There are no accidents”
“…only unrecognized story arcs”
“…that confuse and confound me to no end”
Sorry guys, think I broke it. ;/
well I love how egotistical Bino is.
(for those unable to see it, Alt Text: Marvelous job you did, by the way)
Don’t we all?
Huh, I din’t know bears could swordfight, then again this is Bino’s story… and this is Housepets!
This, is, SPARTA!
No its CAKE TOWN!
and love binos face in third panel
But… the cake is a lie! So, if that’s the case, then wouldn’t it just be Town?
BTW, I can say that now that Portal 2 is out
If the cake is a lie, then that means… the cookies must be the truth! and when will the whimsy begin???
Where’s a frying pan when you need one?
Probably already in Grape’s clutches
she does enjoy that frying pan….
Also very off topic butr i have to ask you frank, do you chnage your avatar to express the emotion you are trying to convey in each of your posts or do you just enjoy chaning it every post?
The former, I believe.
I have 10 distinct* avatars registered with Gravatar (and yes, Furry 321, I do make them all myself). Each one intends to fit the post it’s in. The first time I felt I had to explain them, I wrote this:
Plain text, emoticons, action stars… they just didn’t cut it for me. Ideally, my reply would, in itself, be a comic panel, but comments can’t include in-line images (and I shudder to think of how spammers would use them if they could)
* “Distinct” because I occasionally misspell the e-mail address modifier, and are then forced to register the misspelled version for it to show up correctly
“and am then forced”. sorry
Thanks i’ve just always been curious XD
oh gawsh. this is going to be good. XD
So is the whole arc gonna be like this, or is Bino gonna show some better acting skills at some point?
Hopefully the Arc shows what really happened and not some hyperbolized interpretation of bino’s as the original comic of the arc got me very excited.
Here’s the thing: Rick’s computer problems caused us to miss the original adventure, so we’re being treated to Bino’s redux.
Wait a second, dissension, how do we know ur not Rick himself? Or r u like friends in real life?
he has stated specifically that he is NOT Rick, and I believe him
You know, I’m honestly gonna be kinda disappointed if the entire arc is being changed to fourth-wall-breaking stuff like this.
I repeat: pets having trouble operating video cameras is perfectly in-universe. If we consider Wednesday’s strip non-canon, then Bino is recording this for his own devious purposes and we can enjoy it.
In short, you are free to ignore any hole the fourth wall may or may not have.
It totally happened. This is clearly not a lie being recorded. Bino is a tough guy.
So, Bino is the new Chuck Norris?
New? he always has been.
That’s a little much don’t ya think Bino? ;:)
How Rex can say that and not laugh is a mercy.
Again? *sigh* I’d just leave him there this time.
does anyone know when the webcomic updates?
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12 AM US Central time.
