    Lets Party!!!

    • rtlstien

      I just relaized that’s Peanut in the front! I assumed it was Grape because of the purple-ish fur color.

      I just now looked at the collar!

      • Tigre

        if you shouldn’t told us, I wouldn’t notice it at all dx!

    • Xu-kitty


  2. IJustWantLove

    Wow~ xD Never ceases to amuse me this arc does!

  3. Dissension


    I am having a very good time!!?!

    • Smallfoot

      Everybody disco dancing! Lots of fun! Good time for all!

      • Dissension

        Yay, somebody else got it! *hugs*

      • Frank

        Disco with 10th century instruments? That I’d like to see!

    • Grip the wolf

      Don’t. Stop. Me. Now! I’m having such a good time! I’m having a ball! If you wanna have a good time, just give me a call! Don’t stop me now!

  4. IceKitsune

  5. The Moon Howler

    Woohoo! Paaartyyyy!

  6. rtlstien

    WS: That’s brilliant! BTW I’ve have this idea about a boy and girl from rival families falling in love. Do you have any suggestions?

    TM: Breakdance!

    • Rick Griffin

      Tom Middleton, who wrote the entire witch + hecate sequence for a completely different play years earlier.

      • anon_omis

        Ah…wait what?

        • Foxstar

          You didn’t understand?

          • anon_omis

            No I get it. It’s that I wasn’t expecting that

      • rallyjr


      • Peanut

        hey rick ill take a set of macbeth paperbags and props please

      • Frank

        Nothing’s better than jokes that actually happened

  8. LegendaryHero

    I can see this as the format for some future Spot (superdog) strip.

  9. TheCrimsonFox

    Party time! Woo!!!

  10. NickCrotser

    Weekly Challenge…….30343 cR
    Have a strip end oddly.

  11. anon_omis

    Is that a purple peanut?!?

    • Draven

      And purple Tarot.

  12. 2MK
  13. gaboris

    Who said paddign scenes are the work of the modern lazy writers. :D

  14. Cerveny

    Partys make every thing better =3

  15. silverfang16

    Ah the mixing of times, is there anything more confusing?

    • anon_omis

      Reading a Shakespearian play?

  16. Hera Ledro

    I love the Dance Party xD Better, though, is when a work deconstructs its source material. Let’s Imaginate Macbeth continues!

    …As is obvious, I’m tired, but I loved this strip so much I had to put something in D:

  17. Tech

    ahaha nice

  18. Yehoshua

    And max continued screaming later…

  19. T-Squared

    *Tonight’s dance party music provided by Initial D* ;)

  20. Salenstormwing

    Well… I didn’t see panel #4 coming. Then again, I’m sure the weird sisters wouldn’t have seen that either.

    • xhunterko

      Ahem, they are wierd sisters. What did you expect?

  21. WingedWolfGirl

    Aha, XD
    It is like a hectic dace party

  22. Grip the wolf

    *Starts dancing to random techno music while handing out glowsticks* GRIP HAS JOINED THE PARTY BABY!!!! OH GOD THE LIGHTS! THEY’RE PSYCADELIC!! *STARTS DANCING LIKE CRAZY*

  23. Grip the wolf

    If it wasn’t official already, it is now. Rick Griffin is a COMIC GENIUS! I don’t think that I know of anybody else that can make things like Shakespeare’s playsfunny, Rick, I salute you! *salutes, and heads to Fur Affinity to make Rick the first addition to his watch list*

    • Frank

      What was he before, the second?

      • Grip the wolf

        No. There wasn’t ANYONE on my watch list. Rick is the first user that I have watched.

  24. Argent Stonecutter

    What, no “out out darned Spot” jokes?

    • Frank

      But that would imply they wear clothes!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        No, no, Spot is a dog!

        • Frank

          And since he wears a cape, that counts as “clothes”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            OK, I got it, here’s how it goes…

            Tarot’s imaginating kicks in, and Peanut/Banquo turns up as Spot (Deus ex Superdog) to arrest the Macbeths for multiple homicide. This leads Grape/Lady MacBeth to cry “Out, durned spot, out!”. Hilarity ensues!

          • Hera Ledro

            Speaking of, I’m surprised that Tarot isn’t ‘imaginating’ the whole thing. With her AND Sabrina there, I can’t help but think that the whole projection thing would be CRAZY.

  25. Aubri

    I’m enjoying this entire “paper bag Shakespeare” thing way too much.

    • The Moon Howler

      Did someone said PARTY???

      • Frank

        Only if you’re a witch or a hecate!

        • Aubri

          Actually, I think pink ponies get special dispensation.

  26. Peanut

    in the last paned grapes fur is a bit too dark

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      notice the collar. that’s Peanut with the light discoloring his fur.

      • donimo

        • FlynnDawg

          Out. That statement is BLASPHEMY.

  31. Matthew

    • silverfang16

  32. Sansash

      • Grip the wolf

        She’ll destroy us all! Destroy us all! Destroy us all! Destroy us all! Destroy us all! *Continues his chant for another 24 hours*

        • Draven

          Heh Billy And Mandy ref.

          • Grip the wolf

            Me: Destroy us all! Destroy us a- *whacked between the ears with a frying pan by Mandy*
            Mandy: Copyright infringement is not wise when I am involved in some way.

        • Matthew

          ill have the chicken….

          • SomerandomGeekNamedBrent

            what chicken?

          • Matthew

            billy mandy reference

          • Draven

            No, what chicken is a character in the comic. His name is ‘What Chicken.’ And +1 for Brent

  35. Gavinfoxx

    …Aaaannnddd once again I don’t get it. Someone help me?

    • Indagare

      What don’t you get?

      • Gavinfoxx

        The punchline?

  36. AuvaAkita

    I love this play! XD

  37. P

    Merchandising oppurtunity!

    Sell plain brown paper bags with hats and names drawn on them.

  38. Leonaidas

    donĀ“t know if I can ask this here, but i want to translate this comic, do I need permission to do it? if I need it, where can I ask for it?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      there are already translations of the comics in many languages located in the forums here: http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=6
      if your preferred language isn’t there, feel free to translate it yourself and post it on the forums.

      • Leonaidas

        ok thanks

      • Leonaidas

        I checked, but in spanish they stopped translating it, I would like to start it, but in subcultura.es rather than in the forum, that’s why I’m asking for permission

  39. anon_omis

    I can’t remember. Was Hecate male or female?

    • Indagare

      Female. Depending on the source she may have had three heads or three bodies or some similar configuration.

      • anon_omis

        O_o three bodies?!?!

  40. donimo

    +100 internets if you can post a alt text as a reply

  41. My Fate In My Hands

    All problems solved with a dance party. I want to solve all my problems that way! Room is a mess: have a dance party. Knocked over a glass vase? have a dance party! Stepped in poo, have a dance party. Addicted to Housepets? TIME FOR A DANCE PARTY!!! WHOOOO

    • SomerandomGeekNamedBrent

      dance party gets out of control? TIME FOR A DANCE PARTY!!! ^_^

      • Draven

        Too tired for another dance party, TIME FOR A DANCE PARTY.

  42. Matthew

  43. SilverZeo

    PB&GJ Mom: So I guess we DID bought that disco-light strobe… and the wiring and installation fee for it…
    PB&GJ Dad: Told you it wasn’t me.

  44. Sonic Fox
