    Awww! If only it’d worked, poor McB

  2. IceKitsune

    lol Hail. This is really silly :D

    • Tendo

      Yes, but I just love silly literal puns like that :)

    • Frank

      Well, the witches did predict hail

      • YuanWolf

        Correction… “Tarot” predicted it.

        • JokkePokke

          Yes, but I do believe Tarot and Grape are playing witches. I’ve never seen Macbeth tho, but it looks that way.
          Plus, she’s scary D:

  3. rtlstien

    I also would like the cast of Housepets to be real and it’s not like that’s ever going to happen…

    That would be cool…

    • Frank

      Give me 200 genetic engineers and a decade or two, and we’ll see

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        I think I’ve seen the movie on that one. “Rise of the Planet of the Housepets.”

        • Anubis

          I for one welcome our new housepet overlords.

        • Sansash

          Coming soon to ABC.

          • Frank

            Now now, if Peanut’s in it, it has to be “by PBS”

    • The Diet Poison

      Wait… 0_o
      …you mean they’re not real?!?! D:

      If that’s true, then I’M not real! Which means…

      • Grip

        Noooooooooooooooooo! Not Diet Poison! He had so much to live for! He had so many puns to make! But now he’s gone! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY????!!!?

        • Yehoshua

          Inexistance is a terrible terrible thi*poof*

          • $pike

            “gota hold on gota be strong i got no one to lean on heeeey and we pray and we pray and we pray and we greev every day” SEE YOU AT THE CROSS ROADS so you wont be lonly and im going to miss The Diet Poisin AND Yehoshua R.I.P

        • Frank

          Any minute now, he’ll be replaced by his alternate universe ego: The Diet Poisson

          • rtlstien

            I don’t even like regular fish

          • Draven

            Are irregular fish okay though.

  4. lolzipop

    This is soo funny

  5. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    get thee to a punnery.

    Max, you should know that trick in panel 8 only ever works once.

    • Trefoiler

      This is true- In fact, it’s a bit like the apocalypse: it’s only supposed to come when nobody is expecting it.

      So fellow readers… please expect the apocalypse.

      This message brought to you by the Enemies of Notable Decentralized Destruction. Always near.℠

  6. kurowolfe

    I have to read three times to get the ideas behind it. Curse my narrow study background…

    Hail! Hail! Hail! =3
    I also wanted to have a chat with Peanut, and it’s not like that’s going to happen!

    *waits…..* Drats! DX

  7. Vladimir Zharkov

    Maybe tarot will “enhance” the play with mental projection again?

    • IceKitsune

      I’m pretty sure she already did that with the Hail. But I bet she will do it even more by the end of this.

  8. Argent Stonecutter

    That would be sceating!

  9. Jolton

    I love how when they play theirretend games like this, their eyes are almost always covered up by something xD

    • Jolton

      Oops, typo
      I meant to put “their pretend games” not “theirretend”
      Cursed iPad…. Y u no work right?

      • Grip

        You aren’t the only one that uses an iPad to comment on housepets. And autocorrect usually changes things when you DON’T want it to, but when you NEED it to, it usually DOESN’T.

  10. Lenox

    Hey Rick, if you ever Imaginate Shakespeare again, please do Twelfth Night!

  11. leaffly

    All hail hail! The third panel reminds of a snow globe.

    • Kohaku Nightfang

      I want a Housepets snow globe :D

      • Grim-one

        ME TOO? :)

        • leaffly

          yeah that would be awesome.

          • Trefoiler

            Housepets! Water Balloon Globe :D

            Now THAT would be awesome.

  12. gaboris

    Okay I don’ get why is Max smiling in the 6th panel? Is it “bad” if he gets to be the king or something? O_o”
    Oh and what’s that thing that Max doesn’t get in the second panel?

    I already said that I never read this properly so sorry if I sound uneducated. :p

    • Frank

      He doesn’t get why he’s being called “king hereafter”

    • Jinxed

      If you don’t know the story of MacBeth, you are going to be confused from this point on.

      • Alucai Vivorvel

        *puts paw up*
        Yep, that’s me. I’ve only read Julius Caesar, The Merchant of Venice, and, while I haven’t actually read the entire play myself, I know the story of Romeo and Juliet.
        But not MacBeth.
        That might be this coming school year.

    • chexwarrior

      I haven’t read the Scottish play since high school but iirc so far Macbeth and Banquo are returning from a victorious battle and run in to the three witches/ fates/ wyrd sisters who prophecy that MacBeth will be king and Banquo’s descendants will be kings though he will not be a king. Then the sisters dissapear and MacB says basically “How can I be the king? I’m not even a thane” and a messenger shows up who informs MacB that the thane of Cawdor has been executed so as a reward for his bravery on the battlefield that day the king is making MacB thane of Cawdor.

      • gaboris

        Ah so THAT’S it! :D
        Thx man now I understand. :)

  13. Tides

    I’m really curious to see who will play each character as the play progresses… I figure Max won’t switch characters much, if at all, given the size of his part, but there is still a lot of possibility for the others. I’m curious, that sort of thing always amuses me.

  14. IceKitsune

    Because Macbeth at that time was in no position to be come King yet the Three Witches said he would so hes confused because he doesn’t understand how that could happen. (at least thats what I get out of it I’ve never read Macbeth myself)

    And I think panel six is more like hes happy that the Witches are gone rather then the king part of it.

    • IceKitsune

      This was meant to be a reply to gaboris post above mine.

  15. Roadrunner


  16. Cerveny

    Are those ping pong balls? :3

    • IceKitsune

      I think Tarot used her powers to make Max believe there was Hail coming down. Hence why Max was the only one that reacted and Grape and Sabrina didn’t.

      • Frank

        I think Sabrina and Grape alreaady knew they would be coming down

      • Rick Griffin

        No, those are ping-pong balls

        • IceKitsune

          Ok then, but I wonder how they set that up to happen?

          • GameCobra

            Peanut, my dear chap.

            If he ain’t there, someone has to operate the effects.

          • IceKitsune

            I meant more in the sense how did they set that up with out Max knowing. And if Peanut did it why did he freak out afterwords? I’m going with Tarot was holding it up phsyicly because its the best answer IMO.

          • Rick Griffin

            Because they’re playing around.

          • JokkePokke

            It’s imaginate… It’s supposed to feel real, no?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Plus, with Tarot involved…

    • The Diet Poison

      Alt text: “The earth has bubbles, as the water has: yes that’s really a line in the play”

      • Tensa Zangetsu

        Ok that’s it, Nya!
        What is a alt text, NYYAAAAAAA!?!?

        • Foxstar

          I think you’ve overplayed the cat sound a little much, could you please level off with it?

          • Tensa Zangetsu

            That had nothing to do with my question.

          • Tensa Zangetsu


          • Frank

            The alt text is what appears when you leave your mouse over the comic. So called because browsers originally did this with the “alternate text” (the text to display if the image didn’t load or the reader was blind)

          • Tensa Zangetsu

            No wonder I didn’t k ow what it was. I dont use a computer!
            I use an iPod, NYAA!
            The reason I’m saying Nya is a mystery to all!

      • Draven

        That line sounds funny, probably because its out of context. If it were IN context… it would probably still sound funny.

  17. teamfortress2

    i told you not to touch that darn thang

  18. NickCrotser

    Oh, Lord Griffin, how one does love how thou lampoons Billy Shears’ writing.
    Nary a pudh pun hither, I trow this arc shall become the favorite henceforth!

  19. Salenstormwing

    Next week, maybe we’ll get Spot (Superdog) performing Hamlet. King as Othello?

    • Grim-one

      Facinating that could be a smash hit!!!!!!:)

  20. WingedWolfGirl

    It’s your lucky day Mister Mac-B, except for the hail.

  21. Draven

    Sorry Max, I’ve tried that too and it never works.

  22. Dogs eat Gods

    Max should invest in the Lottery…altho one does wonder, what would a cat (or dog) do with £1 million (or dollars)? :s

    • Indagare

      Probably the same thing the Milton ferrets are doing with their untold riches.

    • Hoheh

      Though it isn’t often brought up, one could quite arguably make a million dollars with the money they blow on the lottery and various activities done over the course of regular activities.

  23. Whitekitsune

    I bet Grape is going to play Lady Macbeth. On another note, I continue to enjoy this little parody, nice job so far Mr. Griffin~

    • Frank

      Two roles?

      • The Diet Poison

        Sabrina has played two roles so far, so why shoudn’t Grape?

        • Frank

          But don’t Lady Macbeth and the witches appear together in some scene?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Hello, I’m Daisy!

            No, you’re Lady Macbeth.

          • Kohaku Nightfang

            Haha that would be funny :P Poor hopeless Daisy. I wonder if Sasha will appear as well. Maybe she can be a guy lol

          • JokkePokke

            If only she get’s her costume off this time…

          • The Diet Poison

            Well, Grape played as wizard, peasant, AND ninja on the first imaginate.

  24. The Diet Poison

    I would have done the same thing Max did. =D

    Also, the “Bq” label on Peanut’s hat disapeared on the 5th panel. =(

    • Peanut

      actually that was a side view of peanut

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        actually, we should still be able to see the label at this angle, because his head is in almost the same position in panels 5 and 6, and we can only see the Bq in panel 6.

  25. kitsune353

    why doesn’t Taro make it real.

    • Salenstormwing

      Because it’s a play? It’s not supposed to be real.

  26. GameCobra


  27. Pea

    Hail to the raining king

    • Kohaku Nightfang

      rofl “rain”ing :P

      • Draven

        Careful, Peanut got in trouble with Grape for that remark.

        • anon_omis


          • Rick Griffin

            That’s the very first comic?

          • JokkePokke

            Hmm, I never really got that one, could someone please explain why she got so mad?

          • Draven

            I guess some people can’t handle puns, Grape might be one of them. Idk

        • rtlstien

          She was pretending to be a wizard who could control the weather. Peanut then makes a horrible pun.

    • Grip

      Oh no! Now Grape is going to hunt you down and kill you! All because you made that pun! *runs away from Pea faster than any other wolf has ever run*

  28. xhunterko

    The earth also has sarcasm. Careful what you say, Macbeth.

  29. anon_omis

    Oh this brings back memories of British literature class…..oh how I hated that class

  30. Lycanthrope

    This is truly what McShakespeare is meant to be.

  31. anon_omis

    It’s been a while since I’ve read/watched macbeth, could someone explain the 5 panel to me?

    • domino

      they said “hail” so max got hit with hail so when they said “hail” again peanut was expecting the same thing

      • anon_omis

        Ah. Ok. Thank you

  32. JokkePokke

    I think a Little Red Riding Hood imaginate would be cool, with Grape as LRRH, Peanut as the big, bad wolf, Tarot as the grandmother, and Max as the crazy guy that comes in with a shotgun and saves the day!

  33. Firewolf

    You spent all your life savings on paper bags and forgot to buy any Imagination! What, did you think a shiny new rainbow would just fall out of the sky?

  34. Matthew

    aw its cute with the hail i wish i could live in that world

    • Frank

      *Pelts Matthew with ping-pong balls*

  35. Firewolf

    Well All Hail the RAINING king :D

  36. $pike

    i miss lana ferret

  37. S.jt $pike

    *browses the web for pics of lana ferret*

  38. PiPtoons

    Your humor is much more creative than what I could normally come up with. Good show.

  39. Someguy

    Uh. I thought Ross was the one that told McB about his elevation to thane…ery. >>

    Shut up I like rhyming.

    So shouldn’t her baghat say ‘R’ instead of ‘A’?

    • Grim-one

      Yeah…:( :)

  40. E

    I’m sensing that the dragon will come in later.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      And the floor is lava!

      There’s no lava in Shakespeare!

      There’s no dragons either.


  41. BanditRingtail

    I’m not sure if the Bard would be rollin’ in his grave outta outrage or laughter. XD There’s just something cute and hilarious about all this.

  42. AuvaAkita

    I’d totally pay attention to Shakespeare in history class if it was portrayed like this!

    • AuvaAkita

      I also totally dig the plastic sack hats! Makes me wish i was apart of the fun :p

    • Trefoiler

      They’re paper.

      And me too! :D
