  1. The Wolf Kin

    Now I wonder. Bino, are you exaggerating? Probably.

    • The Wolf Kin

      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.

      • Keldor

        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.

        • The Wolf Kin

          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.

          • Keldor

            Perhaps Max will tell us – if he was there the first time, there’s no way he’ll help Bino keep that version quiet…

          • Keldor

            At least, not without an appropriate bribe… e.e

  2. IceKitsune

    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

    • The Wolf Kin

      I doubt it. After all, even Rex doesn’t seem to believe it.

      • IceKitsune

        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.

        • tanglestalker909

          As Wolf said, I doubt it. Rick probably had to change up some things or completely rewrite the script because of the computer problems.

          • IceKitsune

            If its true that’s rather disappointing IMO. I would really like to know what the original plan was then.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Me too. Maybe we can guilt him into doing a text update.

          • Electric Claw

            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.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            hate to be a spelling Nazi, but the word you meant to use is “but.” the other spelling can lead to much giggling.

          • Electric Claw

            Yeah, I noticed right after I posted it. I WAS hoping no one would notice butt…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            as I said, giggling.

  3. LegendaryHero

    Because trees look like grizzly bears nowadays.

    • Keldor

      Honest mistake! Really!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      So bears are godless killing machines and shapeshifters. Colbert was right, watch out.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Bears? Godless? Then how do you explain SHARDIK?

        • Leitrean

          shardik was an cyborg bear (if we are talking about stephen king’s dark tower that is)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Never heard of that Shardik. I’m talking about the bear god from the novel of the same name.

          • Leitrean

            we are reffering to the same thing.

            the bear god in the book was a cyborg

  4. theblackcateyes

    Silly movie stars and their super-egocentrism!! and Bino!!!

    • Mystic Wolf

      Good begin for a super-egocentrist film!

  5. Leitrean

    What? swordfighting with a grizzly? ridiculous.

    everyone knows Grizzlys prefer Chess over fencing.

    • Frank

      It is cats who do ridiculous sword fighting! I have proof!
      http://www.ozfoxes.net/cgi/pl-fp1.cgi?1284

      Of course, doing that in this universe probably ends with Grape and a super soaker

      • Leitrean

        Proof Indeed, good show, jolly good show!
        Although grape with a super soaker would be bad news for anyone within range, especially bino.

  6. Kondog

    I love Bino’s face look in frame 3

    • Leitrean

      Frame 1 is hilarious

    • Keldor

      And the fact that he’s still wearing his collar…

    • Keldor

      Come to think of it, Bino’s practically wearing a Lester face in panel 3. XD

  7. Foldo

    Yay! More fourth wall breaking! \o/

    And I love the over-exaggeration of Bino in the second panel. xD

    • Frank

      Actually pets having trouble operating a video-camera is perfectly in-universe

      • Foldo

        But doing it for the readers of Housepets! is not. ;)

  8. gaboris

    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

  9. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Ehhh, still not a manly as Putin.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Yeah but Putin drives a Lada and Bino doesn’t so it balances out in the canine’s favor.

    • Leitrean

      does bino fish with his collar off?i think not! putin wins

      • Frank

        Gah! Naked Putin!
        “I is not naked, I has a fishing rod!”

        • Leitrean

          That quote looks oddly familiar

  10. RegularBird

    This is just going to get better and better xD

  11. Z24

    Are Bino’s pupils stuck in “psycho-mode”? XD

    And he still has his collar on panel 3…

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      He refused to do a nude scene

  12. silverfang16

    How could this possibly end badly? -_-

    • darkgloomie

      Shhh! Don’t jinx it. It always goes bad when somebody says that in the movie… Oh!

      I c wut u did thar.

      • Frank

        No problem. Jasper will catch that jinx

    • Mystic Wolf

      Only “could”? How “will”!

      • silverfang16

        Ah, but then it isn’t a jinx!

      • FuRrY321

        Methinks you jinxed the jinx.
        *waggles finger*

  13. Rayne

    I do sorta wish we had the natural version .

  14. Frank

    Well, I think it’s hilarious

  15. GameCobra

    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.)

    • Frank

      Knowing Bino, he probably has a spare for the spare, “because you never how insidious are those who plot against you”

  16. The Moon Howler

    Why do i have the feeling this won’t end well for somebody?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      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).

    • netherwolf

      Could that somebody be Bino ;3 xD

      • Mystic Wolf

        I think it’s the group, I mean, that somebody are Bino and Rex.

        • The Moon Howler

          Nah, Rex doesn’t deserve it, he’s just big, goofy, cookie-baking Bulldog(right?) and i indeed was referring to Bino :D

          • Mystic Wolf

            I know, but I think Rex is going to help Bino to do something, and then he will be in a problem too.

          • The Moon Howler

            And Spot (Superdog) will save him :D

          • Mystic Wolf

            And his girlfriend (and she is not a cat) :D

  17. E

    Warning: the comic has a heavy dose of bino’s ego

  18. ZincChloride

    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…

    • ZincChloride

      Oh ok I get it now… he’s retelling what happened because Rick’s computer got the gonaherpasyphalaids and crapped out. XP

  19. Anubis

    Oh Bino.

  20. netherwolf

    what’s a pansy ?..don’t remember the exact meaning for that word ;3

    • Argent Stonecutter

      An effeminate and cowardly fellow who can’t take the heat. Probably has a cooking show. “Fruits and nuts: wild cuisine, featuring Shardik”.

  21. Salenstormwing

    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.

    • Leitrean

      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!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Why can’t you make the kitchen into a skating rink?

        • FerreTrip

          Yeah, it’s fun!

        • Anubis

          Because you’re not allowed.

          • Frank

            By whom, I wonder

          • Electric Claw

            By the Universal Order of Mothers.

          • Mystic Wolf

            Because the celestial policy :D (let’s see if you remember what have I said).

        • Leitrean

          Because they will somehow end up burning down a flooded house.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            if anyone can do it, it’s ferrets.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m sure the Good Old Dogs Club beat them to it.

  22. LegendaryHero

    I want to say that in the original version, Rex was detained by pets who wish Bino harm?

    • darkgloomie

      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.

      • darkgloomie

        at least, that’s my readinf of it

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        You do know Bino is likely making this up as he goes to stroke his ego right?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          That’s crazy talk!

          • Frank

            Indeed! He planned it all to stroke his ego! How else would Rex have lines written down for him?

        • darkgloomie

          doesn’t make it any less true (as in, he does think the contents of my previous comment)

      • LegendaryHero

        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.

  23. Argent Stonecutter

    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.

  24. FerreTrip

    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.)

  25. CaptainPea

    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.

    • FuRrY321

      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! 8O

      • silverfang16

        I wondered a little about that too!

      • Frank

        “There are no accidents”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          “…only unrecognized story arcs”

          • Leitrean

            “…that confuse and confound me to no end”

          • FuRrY321

            “…end…end…end…nd…d..d..”
            Sorry guys, think I broke it. ;/

  26. LordWorpeltinger

    well I love how egotistical Bino is.
    (for those unable to see it, Alt Text: Marvelous job you did, by the way)

    • Leitrean

      Don’t we all?

  27. TigerStryk

    Huh, I din’t know bears could swordfight, then again this is Bino’s story… and this is Housepets!

    • YoyoDude

      No…

      This, is, SPARTA!

      • huntersunday

        No its CAKE TOWN!
        and love binos face in third panel

        • FuRrY321

          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 :P

          • TigerStryk

            If the cake is a lie, then that means… the cookies must be the truth! and when will the whimsy begin???

  28. Z24

    Where’s a frying pan when you need one?

    • Frank

      Probably already in Grape’s clutches

      • Leitrean

        she does enjoy that frying pan….

      • Leitrean

        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?

        • FuRrY321

          The former, I believe.

        • Frank

          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:
          http://frankhightower.blogspot.com/2010/11/okay-whats-with-new-avatars.html

          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

          • Frank

            “and am then forced”. sorry

          • Leitrean

            Thanks i’ve just always been curious XD

  29. Lance

    oh gawsh. this is going to be good. XD

  30. Shake

    So is the whole arc gonna be like this, or is Bino gonna show some better acting skills at some point?

    • Leitrean

      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.

      • Dissension

        Here’s the thing: Rick’s computer problems caused us to miss the original adventure, so we’re being treated to Bino’s redux.

        • Mr. Random

          Wait a second, dissension, how do we know ur not Rick himself? Or r u like friends in real life?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            he has stated specifically that he is NOT Rick, and I believe him

        • Shake

          You know, I’m honestly gonna be kinda disappointed if the entire arc is being changed to fourth-wall-breaking stuff like this.

          • Frank

            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.

  31. Hoheh

    It totally happened. This is clearly not a lie being recorded. Bino is a tough guy.

    • Frank

      So, Bino is the new Chuck Norris?

      • Leitrean

        New? he always has been.

  32. Dogs Rule27

    That’s a little much don’t ya think Bino? ;:)

  33. E

    How Rex can say that and not laugh is a mercy.

  34. Jennifer the Dark

    Again? *sigh* I’d just leave him there this time.

  35. helo?

    does anyone know when the webcomic updates?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12 AM US Central time.
