  1. Ryufire

    Awesome laugh there Bino! ^^

    • netherwolf

      Alt:No,I won’t explain it,because that why it’s funnier to me

      • JokkePokke

        …I don’t get it?

  2. Alphonse

    Classy act, that Bino…

    • Leitrean

      He’s soaking up the love

      • Alphonse

        Because, you know, there is just such an abundance of that, especially in dealing with Bino.
        I know I love him.

  3. Dissension

    I’m pretty sure we all saw this coming. *giggles*

    Or not, maybe.

  4. IceKitsune

    lol what the heck just happened?

    • huntersunday

      everything I think it was planned but I don’t know maybe Bino is a mastermind?

    • Shake

      I think the ferret (Rock?) was filming a reenactment of Bino’s reenactment of the day he lost his collar.

    • The Moon Howler

      It seems that Bino finally got what he wanted

    • Leitrean

      We’ll see what the critics have to say…

  5. netherwolf

    O.M.G.,i really didn’t see that coming,nice.

    • Mystic Wolf

      Me either, but we all knew that the ferrets were coming in this arc. xD

    • Skykitsune

      You know what *I* didn’t see coming? Robert Downy Jr. (Look at the cast)

  6. rtlstien

    And the award goes to…

    • rtlstien

      Robert Downey Jr!

      • Gabi

        Yes, that was really funny. :)

    • Snowmon

      And the award for best actor goes to… (drumroll)
      Himself! (applause) Come on down and get your award!
      :}Insert moody speech here{:

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Himself is an awesome actor, with huge range, but he’s like that scoundrel Ibid, thinks he’s an expert on everything.

        • Leitrean

          please explain, who is Ibid?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Ibid. (Latin, short for ibidem, meaning the same place) is the term used to provide an endnote or footnote citation or reference for a source that was cited in the preceding endnote or footnote. — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibid.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            See also op. cit., loc. cit., etc., etc… — Ibid.

          • Leitrean

            Thank you very much

          • Leitrean

            reminds me of age of empires 2 when a certain unit (cant remember which) says ibid when issued a walk command.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        Himself is not an actor, but a character played by multiple actors.

        • Snowmon

          Hence the joke… (T_T)
          Like your name… (-_-)
          And your haaat… (#_#)
          and Your teeth…(@_@)
          You’re… ~differ~rent~…

          Drink you milk Brent. Don’t be different. Drink your Milk…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I’ll have you know I have a cup of chocolate milk everyday with breakfast. and I have no hat.

            and I was just pointing out that the credits don’t say “Himself as…” it says “… as Himself”

        • Snowmon

          …and the award for best actress goes to… Herself!

      • cesarinthewhitedragon

        kinda reminds me of some people who joked by calling themselves as the chars of left4dead
        it ends something like “Francis as Francis as Francis”

      • Espemon333

        Sorry, bro, but Robert Downey Jr. did a FANTASTIC job as “Guy in Background”

  7. Snowmon

    Is it scary that I hear a laugh track at the end of this comic?
    My brain hurts…

    • Leitrean

      mwuhahahahahahahahahaha!

      • Snowmon

        No more like a sitcom, less like a maniac.

      • LordWorpeltinger

        *opens a can of laughter*
        HaHAhAHa-haHahahahaHaHHaaahhahhaahahhahaha
        (Not easy trying to make a text sound effect that sounds like multiple styles of laughing)

  8. lolparty

    Frank?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      some human crew member

    • Frank

      I’m innocent! I swear!

      • Leitrean

        Haha! i didn’t realize until now that frank is also frank (you know what i mean)
        maybe a shout-out or just coincidence?

        • Leinad

          why not both?

          • Leitrean

            because one implies intention to make the association and the other is accidental association

  9. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    I’m a little confused. did they just break a fifth wall?

    • Two_Twig

      The fifth wall is the wall between audience members, as they don’t interaction or acknowledge each other while watching a play together so… I don’t think so? I actually don’t know.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        that’s the fourth wall. they seemed to build up a fifth one inside of it and break it.

        • Just-This-Guy

          fourth wall- between audience and actors
          fifth wall- between each individual audience member.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            the fifth wall can be any where. but I was confused when I first made this comment. Elwood’s comment below about unbreaking the fourth wall does make more sense.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        The fifth wall is the ceiling. The sixth wall is the floor. If you break the sixth wall you better be good at plummeting.

        • JokkePokke

          I love how there’s always so many interesting conversations here, take now for an example, you’re discussing how many walls that got broken (whatever that means) in this strip, but what does that have to do with anything, right?
          :D

    • GameCobra

      There was no fourth wall. just like there was no spoon.

    • Leitrean

      nay, they repaired the 4th wall

      the fifth wall is not a wall persay but a principle

      “I got to thinking about the 4th Wall a while back, and I realized that if a character breaks the fourth wall and there is an imaginary audiance reading the story, then the imaginary audiance must be contained by another wall. The 5th Wall.

      If the imaginary audiance breaks the 5th wall, and if there is another imaginary audiance, then the 6th Wall comes up. And so on. I call it the 5th Wall Principle.

      A good example is the Tv Tropes the Tv show story. The imaginary audiance is interacting with characters who broke the fourth wall, but that audiance isn’t aware that they are a part of the story, so they have to be contained by another wall.

      An alternative view is that the characters never broke the 4th Wall and it just expanded to contain the imaginary audiance. But then you have to ask what was containing the audiance before the characters broke the 4th wall.

      Whenever there is another layer beyond the story where the 4th Wall is broken, and those characters are unaware they are part of a story, there is another wall.

      This is the 5th Wall principle. ” stolen directly from http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12982154780A08060100&page=0

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I don’t think that “5th wall” is created until the imaginary audience is explicitly depicted, as for example in the finale to Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles”. I don’t recall if that movie breaks the 5th wall.

        But if the audience turns out to be real, and the existence of the actors is part of the storyline (I’ve seen examples of this where a movie starts on set but you don’t see that it’s a set until after the titles) then the 4th wall isn’t broken.

        • Leitrean

          imagine a 5th wall breaking as watching an episode of sienfield and then they turn the camera on the live audience

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That’s when the 5th wall gets created.

          • Leitrean

            only if they arent aware that the camera is turned on them..if they see it and realise it then it’s broken

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Only if they’re actors pretending to be an audience.

          • Leitrean

            So if lets say i am reading this comic and all of a sudden peanut starts talking to ME and me directly (the audience) then he has broken the fourth wall, but at the same time me interacting with him is part of the comic but i don’t realize it is then i am contained by the 5th wall, if i am aware that i am part of the comic by interacting with peanut who has broken the fourth wall then i have in turn broken the 5th wall.
            that’s my understanding of the 5th wall.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Right, but the television audience isn’t part of the show, there’s no 5th wall between them and you, like there’s no 4th wall between you and a weatherman or guests on a talk show.

            So I guess the 5th wall doesn’t get created when you see the audience. It gets created when you see that the audience is part of a fictional narrative as well.

  10. Latrone

    I’m so confused.

    And I don’t even care cause it’s funny. :D :D :D

  11. theblackcateyes

    ajeje and the OSCAR goes to…

    • netherwolf

      Peanut! x3

      • rtlstien

        He should just win every award

        • theblackcateyes

          FOR WHAT? a last panel one line participation?….. True.

          • Mystic Wolf

            That’s enough xD He is the cuttest actor of this film!

    • theblackcateyes

      Critic 1: Vote for FOX; his expression is so WIN.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The Oscar goes to Oscar!

  12. Latrone

    Also, that I WIN face is totally epic.

  13. loomCAT

    Robert Downy, Jr.? No relations to the actual actor, I suppose? ^^

  14. Max

    Epic win!
    Bino finally did it? =o

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen the fourth wall unbreak before. What a twist.

  16. Thoth

    Well, now I know who’s been directing a lot of current films. I think I recognize the style.

  17. GameCobra

    I knew it!

    … until i saw a ferret. @_@

  18. gaboris

    Funny it IS Rick don’ worry. XD BTW what could’ve the racoon and the fox been doing in this production I wonder… :D

  19. The Wolf Kin

    Rabid Raccoon?

  20. Two_Twig

    I really enjoyed the performance of Dog #1. Simply inspiring his work.

    • LegendaryHero

      His owner wasn’t very creative with names, apparently.

      I for one was awestruck by Guy in Background. Robert Downey Jr. gave the character justice.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        I’d ask how they got the budget for Kirk Lazarus’ cameo but the ferrets aren’t know for being good with money.

      • RegularBird

        I think Saucy Fox is an awesome name for a fox, very creative.

    • silverfang16

      I don’t know…..dog #2 had such amazing emotion!

      • Leitrean

        and character

        • darkgloomie

          wait, is dog #1 the one in the unfocused background or is it dog#2? I’m not good with names, but he’ll be forever the guy I’ll look up to when thinking of acting pets.

          Sorry Bino, that spot’s been already taken :3

          • Mystic Wolf

            I think dog number 1 was the black dog who was with Fox

  21. LegendaryHero

    I would say that was well played, except I have no idea what the play was. So, like, was this whole thing a reenactment of a reenactment of Bino losing his collar?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Except for the watermelon. They never do explain the watermelon.

      • Leitrean

        the tantalizing watermelon…..

  22. Oren Otter

    ……………………….. I don’t get it.

    • kimba

      he wont explain it x( haha

  23. blackwaltz7

    houspets! was filmed before a live studio audience.

  24. Aenbr

    Rabid Raccoon? Dog 1? Dog 2? Guy in Background? A SAUCY FOX!? What the heck could we have possibly missed?!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I don’t know, but Wednesday we’re going to have a one-off.

      • Leitrean

        we shall see what the next arc brings, hopefully kerishad or pete

      • Frank

        Or a stinger gag!

  25. Russiarules1

    You guys don’t know how confused I am.

    • TigerStryk

      Okay, Frank (not the mouse guy) probably means Rick’s coputer problems and Bino had his *ahem* incedent made into a movie by Rock, but the “Frank”(computer problem) messed up the original copy of the “movie” so the past few strips was an re-enactment of the movie…
      haha a re-enactment of a re-enactment

      • Russiarules1

        I think I know what you mean, but I am still a little bit confused. Why? I have no idea.

  26. RegularBird

    My mine is full of confused.

    • netherwolf

      Then Rick’s mission is complete ;3

      • nukedude51

        his mission has been completed from the start

  27. Vlad the Cat

    oscar goes to rock. SO MUCH EMOTIONS FROM IT !

  28. Neon Sky

    I… Think I’m starting to love Bino. he is so amazing.

    • Whitekitsune

      Just as planned.

  29. silverfang16

    I don’t know how…….but the breaking of the fourth wall has been disproved, and it was hilarious.

    • Shake

      They just built their own fourth wall between themselves and the *original* fourth wall, and then broke said new one.
      I can’t tell if I’m agreeing with your post or not.

      • silverfang16

        Yea me neither.

  30. Shake

    *Cue Inception Theme*

    • Naylorfan90

      Did…did they just go a level deeper?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      *BRRRRRNNNN*

  31. T-Squared

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! >8D

  32. Argent Stonecutter
  33. Hera Ledro

    xD Robert Downey Jr. as the guy in the background.

    …Come to think of it, I think he’d have almost the perfect voice for Fido D:

    • Leitrean

      I would very much like to see an animated series of this comic, mainly to see if my interpretations of what they all sound like is what they actually would be.

  34. Leitrean

    Well i have to hand it to you rick, i did NOT like where this was going back after you got your computer fixed but this comic, THIS comic, made it all better.

    i really like this a lot as not only does it negate any 4th wall-smashery but it adds a funny, unexpected, and original twist to the arc.

    good show, jolly good show.

    i have but one request: Let us see bino naked!

  35. Nick Crotser

    I want to see who Saucy Fox is, unless Saucy Fox is… Fox?!? *insert the stabby music from Psyco* …anyway, I liked this one, I have to admit I’m a bit confused, but that seems to be consensus with this Arc.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Saucy Fox is lost in the gaps between the panels.

      • Leitrean

        Those cursed gaps, i lost a cousin to those gaps.

  36. Slash0mega

    dog 1 starring himself
    dog 2 starring himself

    they must feel loved,

  37. Naylorfan90

    I…wot?

  38. nukedude51

    this sir was an epic win

  39. David Cramer, From HP!R

    Love the fourth wall Repair, seriously though didn’t see this coming, i suspected though.
    Still wnt to see Bino Naked, Just Saying.

    • Leitrean

      actually this completely negates any broken fourth walls because they never actually happened because of this end

      • David Cramer, From HP!R

        That’s what i meant, but it sounds cosmic the way you say it, so I welcome the correction. haha

        • Leitrean

          They only let us know so little..who are they you ask?
          nobody knows

          • David Cramer, From HP!R

            Ah, Yes……….what?

  40. Shady Kitsune

    I bet Rick or fan-artists are getting a bunch of requests to draw this “Saucy Fox” right about now…

    • Frank

      But she’s right there in “Oops I arced”! You know, when the raccoon says “the low level predators”? Just beyond the edge of the panel!

  41. David Cramer, From HP!R

    probably…in fact most likely, of course, I would guess, most of them have already started.

  42. K

    Griffin, Griffin, Griffin, I still think we didn’t know yet about ALL that happened…

  43. Salenstormwing

    Is this something about Inception? I haven’t seen that movie but I heard it’s confusing and that seemed like what it might be about.

    Or maybe it’s because the ferrets are monkeying about with reality again. Knowing them, they just hid all the 8th dimensional dice behind the couch again.

  44. ZincChloride

    Wait… what?

  45. FerreTrip

    This has been a very amusing demolition of the fourth wall–or was this (at least almost) all within the fourth wall but it didn’t look like it?

    Regardless, I hope this arc idea doesn’t get totally abandoned…

    Then again, the comment didn’t say “end of arc”…

  46. Dogs Rule27

    Is it just me or has Bino gotten crazier and crazier every strip?

  47. Mr. Random

    In all honesty, I never expected one of the ferrets to be directing this. Nice turn of events, Rick!

    Also, lol at the 4th panel

    • Dogs Rule27

      If I knew Bino would get different help for making a movie i totally would have expected the ferret whats-his-name.

      • Dogs Rule27

        Rock, that’s the ferret’s name. kk

        • Mr. Random

          I see. Thanks for the info. See, there’s 7 (I think) ferrets and they look too similar for my feeble mind to memorize their names

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            there are 6: Rock, Keene, Lana, Pit, Simon, and Duke(I looked on the cast list for the names.)

  48. xhunterko

    No explanation needed. None whatsoever.

  49. Radius Foxwolf

    I think SaucyFox is Rick’s convoluted response to this:

    http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/04/15/things-fall-apart/#comment-69591

    LOL!

  50. GameCobra

    Huh. it just occurred to me that both Bino and Sasha got approached by Rock for his movies. i wonder what this could mean? o.o

  51. Dogs Rule27

    Someone need’s to put Bino in a facility for the mentally deranged.

  52. Expletive Deleted

    Let’s if I got this right. Bino lost his collar. Stuff happened, he wanted to tell the story of what happened, the 4th wall is broken, Rock decides to produce Bino’s tale, they go the path of tropic thunder and decide to film a renactment of a fictional event, the only copy is deleted, they film the non-ficional reanactment of the reanactment of a fictional event, the 4th wall is unbroken, something about Robert Downey Jr… Inception… computer problems… pancakes…

    *head explodes*

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The fourth wall didn’t break, that was Frank’s computer problem, not Rick’s computer problem.

    • Dogs Rule27

      And what about the consideration of putting Bino in a facility for the mentally deranged? Huh?

      • Dissension

        It’s probably not necessary to post the same comment multiple times.

    • Leitrean

      Not a break, merely a lampshade notice how he is tagged as “Frank?”
      and not “frank”

    • Leitrean

      also clever typing “system shutdown” in binary

  53. Dogs Rule27

    Also i’m surprised that Rick is actually doing the comic over spring break. But i’m happy that this will mean more of it and no angry or anticipating fans that just can’t wait for the comic to return after break of which I would probably and most likely part of…
    YAY!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      why is that surprising. I don’t think Rick is a student, son spring break doesn’t affect him.

      • Leitrean

        if his 2009 talkshoe interview is anything to go by then he’s probably out of school and looking for work or decided to milk his parents and do what his mom wanted and stufy to become a doctor

        • Leitrean

          Whoops study not stufy

    • Frank

      Easter break, technically. “Spring” break can fall anytime (if you’ll remember, Canada has it on the first week of March)

  54. Jennifer the Dark

    Looks like the credits from my music video O_O

    • Leitrean

      Rebbeca black? is that you?

    • Jennifer the Dark

      No, I made a music video for Jimmy Eats World, but nobody would help me because it was snowing really hard (I don’t blame them). So, I filmed myself…

      • Leitrean

        oh cool, i didn’t mean that literally though, just saw a chance to poke fun at “friday” :3

  55. Fireclave

    This tangled weave of meta layered upon meta with no definitive start or end. Beautifully done, sir. I am truly amazed. That said, this comic could use more Saucy Fox and Robert Downey Jr.

    • Leitrean

      actually as stated before, there is no meta here, this comic negates any fourth wall breaking or meta

      • Fireclave

        Or does it…?

        • Expletive Deleted

          *Twilight zone music*

  56. Hoheh

    What. An act? SERIOUSLY?!

    • Leitrean

      seriously?

      • Mr. Random

        Ur avatar’s face fits that word perfectly

  57. TigerStryk

    Wow, the Fourth wall has been abused and destroyed so much during this arc, it will take me a very long time to rebuild it…

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      don’t worry, they just rebuilt it with this comic.

  58. WingedWolfGirl

    ……………………………………………………………………………………………..Cool.

    There are two dogs in the HP universe named Dog #1 & Dog #2.

    • Mr. Random

      Those are the best names for a dog, what’s wrong with them? XP

  59. Dogs Rule27

    Who’s frank?

    • Dissension

      If you read the comic, you’ll see it’s presumably the editor.

    • Frank

      Whoever it is, it’s definitely not me!

  60. Secret Agent 000

    …I think that this comic might be referring to the end of the arc “Noob Tube” (arc #37).

  61. Sansash

    Did anyone else look up recursion?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      I did, but I only got a page that linked to itself ;)

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        (and therefore, had a link within a link and so on.)

        • JokkePokke

          Oh no! You’ve created a Paradox!

  62. Not EGS

    Also featuring Himself as Himself.

  63. JageshemashFTW

    Is it just me or is Bino like a G-rated Eric Cartman… Except likeable.

  64. FenixWong951

    I think that the best actor was Rock…oh yeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
