How graphic is the violence? 0.0
The kind that gets dumb down and heavily edited by 4kids.
So you mean someone just happened to much as mention a knife or gun?
In other words, in the 4kids version, Macbeth threw MacDuff’s entire family into a portal to the Shadow Realm.
After using Invisble gun-hammers!
But not before murdering the king with a children’s card game!
With lollypops that throw smoke!
Ah, so instead of swords, everyone waves their hands around while giving thumbs-ups until someone gets tired and “faints”?
The violence would be equal to a rated E10+ Game.
Do you mean American standards or Japan standards?
ANd why is Mini-Moon with that coyote in you avatar?
Say what! If you played RPG games you would know that’s Presea Combatir, And Caius Qualls!
…oh wait I just read it a bit better…Anyways That’s a Clip From the opening
To Tales of The World Radiant Mythology3
For the ratings it can be either japanese, or American! It doesn’t matter ^_<
His name is Eugene
One little family slaughter and I’m branded for life!?
And lol at Harry Potter reference
Am not sure how it’s a Harry Potter reference when this is how Macbeth goes
Sorry for not knowing Harry Potter stole it from Macbeth.
If they had been doing Hamlet then I would have been on this much better, but I get to laugh at myself now for my ignorance lol
Well, not stolen, but referenced. The whole song is a reference to the Macbeth witches. Double double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble!
It’s why it’s considered the cursed play. Apparently Shakespeare didn’t ask permission to use black magic in the play, so the witches cursed it. That’s just one story.
Hahahaha I’m laughing at myself again.
But seriously, I know nothing about Macbeth. Hamlet, yes. Macbeth, no.
The only thing I have any reference to Macbeth is from the old Gargoyles cartoon. And I’m at least smart enough to know that much of it didn’t actually happen like in the play…
And please I hope I am not wrong because I’m tired of being correct and having to laugh at myself lol
if you mean the “something wicked this way comes” thing, that was a Macbeth reference in Harry Potter.
Man, Shakespeare is full of cliches.
Shakespeare created a lot of cliches, the least of which is the “Wherefore art thou” line. Annoys me to no end that people think that means “Where are you?” as opposed to “Why are you”, but I suppose they’re justified =/ The Shakespearean cliches are perhaps the most stereotypical instances of exactly what a cliche is.
“There’s nothing new under the sun” –Ecclesiasties 1:9
And apparently, there’s been nothing new since
Amusing. I’m really enjoying this arc, having read the play and finding it quite good. Seeing the Housepets! crew do it has been better than seeing my class try to perform it (where they butchered everything quite horribly.)
Yeah, when my class tried to do Julius Caesar it was quite interesting to say the least, haha! I agree, the five of them are quite amusing in this play. Having Max play Macbeth is working quite well, I think. Nice casting, Rick, haha!
geez a guy just can’t kill an entire family and not have everyone declare war on him anymore can he! I love Grape having a blindfold on on the TV.
Tarot should use her holodeck powers to augment this play.
But then what would they do with the cute plastic bags?
You mean paper. It they were plastic they’d be dead
that would be a sad day
Well I’m sure tarot could fix that
In case of ill effects caused by tampering of the visual cortex, they may use them as barf bags.
There, I thought of a reasonable and productive use.
Ahem, *cough cough*, protectionfromfallingwhiteballsofdoom, aheeem, darn this cold!
I saw what you did there….but I don’t get it
Is it just me or is it every time someone see the future they wind up causing it to happen. Seriously… Well, at least he got the deluxe package.
it’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy, and it does tend to happen a lot.
I call it an over used plot device
It’s not so much the whole future as it is one or two specific events occurring in the future that they make extremely vague references to.
Oh you mean something like this?
I see… I see…
I see… your future…
I predict that this… is 98% accurate…
You are going to die…
period. no seriously. That’s it. That’s all I’ve got bub.
Yeah, pretty much
2% chance of immortality
I like those odds. vague with a chance of immortality.
No, I just had to consider the other methods of reaching an “end” excluding “death”. You know like: the Rapture, falling into the Mu Gate of pure darkness, slipping right out of existence, stopping yourself from being born by time travel, being infected by a mind-altering virus/parasite so that you are no longer “you” for the rest of your mortal life, and etc.
You know the works.
That’s your classic Greek tragic form.
Prophecy: “Beware, this baby will kill you and marry your chick”
Laius: “OK, stake his feet and throw him out for the jackals”
Oedipus, baby: “Waah”
Shepherd: “Whoa, someone harshed this baby, let me heal his poor little footsies and take him for my own.”
Oedipus, grown: “Old dude, get outta my way!”
Oedipus: *kills him*
Oedipus: *proceeds to marry the old man’s chick*
^_^ java funny
How much work did put into this? They made a video for the play too?
Aha! MacDuff wasn’t born of woman, ‘cos he’s a dog!
Heh! That’s a more persuasive loophole than the original.
Violates the “son of a charming young woman” rule, though.
Grrr what i meant was: lol thats funny its my phone sorry^ _^
Macbeth: Uh… this was all in the plan!
Me: No it wasn’t!
Macbeth: Shut up!
NOT ACCORDING TO PLAN!! NOT ACCORDING TO PLAN!!
Me: And now for a word from our sponsor
The Joker: It’s all part of the plan!
Me: And now, back to our regular scheduled programming.
It was all in Plan B.
Wasn’t that the one in which he wastes time eating muffins?
(prize for who guesses the quote)
It’s true, though, the spotty one does look better than her in a skirt!
A bit sad how Macbeth was too busy being afraid to actually enjoy being the king
And yet oddly hilarious
When you say oddly hilarious I say oddly Stupid :/
Stupidity + serious situation = Comedy on the interwebs
You’ve just restored my faith in the internet of making everything avatarizable
You just rocked my mind dude D: (JK)
Tensa Zangetsu what is that picture from?
Tales of The World Radiant Mythology 3
Your welcome (^_^)
Oh prophecies how convienently cryptic you are.
“No man can kill me!(LotR)” and “No living man hurt the one wearing this armor.(Relic Hunter)” are my favorites. X)
What’s the problem in the 6th panel? Two of the three prophecies said he’ll be fine. How could ANYTHING go wrong right?*sarcasm* XD
trees moving and cesaerian sections almost NEVER happen EVERYTHING IS FIIIIINE
I wish the deluxe school package came with popcorn.
Just one measly family and all of a sudden, he’s a criminal…
This is getting more interesting
i honestly have to say i am LOVING this arc. as a lit nerd, former english major, etc…it’s just cracking me up left, right and center. the alt tags too. you’re doing this a hell of a lot more justice than most shakespeare in the park players.
Also 2 quick questions
1. Why is there a T.V?
2. How are grape and peanut in it?
1- they’re performing the play in their house, so they probably just used a house tv
I just had a Grune moment…I just acted like she would in this situation, and asked a simpleminded question!
Never ignore prophecy, ever.
He’s not ignoring it, he’s trying to avoid it. That never works.
i would… just sayin…
THOSE WHO FOLLOW YOUR ADVICE WILL MEET A HORRIBLE FATE
Maxwell’s popcorn is no match for Peanut’s manly chest.
That, and Peanut really knows how to pose on Television =3
Completely off the topic, but will Duchess ever return? I’d love a new, British character, and I love her personality, judging by her first impression!
I’d say most probably, though not any time soon and not in a major role.
Am I the only one getting hungry from seeing the popcorn? Just thought I would be random enough to ask.
You do realize “corn” in medieval britain basically meant wheat, right?
hows that relevent?
Ever tried to make “pop-wheat”?
Mine eyes have pierced what thou hath done yonder
(I see what you did there)
dun dun duuuun
Let me see if I understood.
Prophecy one: This guy s going to kill you
Prophecy two: Nothing born from a woman can kill you
Yes, I googled around and found about ‘the loophole’, but I guess Shakes could have produced a better one. (McDuff could have dropped a vase of flowers on McBeth’s head or something)
Prophecy three: This one just made no sense to me. How this one works out?
Well if he dropped the vase on him it still would have been MacDuff killing him else all Shakespeare would have had to do is say “MacDuff’s sword isn’t born of a woman so it could kill MacBeth” As for Birnam wood coming to Dunsinane either be patient and wait until the comic gets there or go read the play, its public domain so there has got to be a free version somewhere.
What if MacDuff’s blacksmith was female?
Basically Malcom and MacDuff lead an army to Macbeth’s castle dressed in camouflage, and they have branches and other foliage attached to them, so it *looks* like the Birnam Wood is coming against him.
Prophecy one is actually “You’ll be king, but your sons won’t be” which is different.
Btw, did I mention already that Tolkien’s prophecy in LotR regarding the Witch King came to be because he was disatisfied with Shakespeare?
This is like the plotline to EVERY final destination movie. Knowing your doomed fate yet still trying to outrun inevitablity.
Which is actually the basis of greek mythology
Like, the previous king was any worse right? Right?
Hey, that was a nice graphic for “Graphic Violence”.
Maybe that step was too big
Does “graphic violence” count as a sound effect, kuz we need some awesome sound effects.
“Deluxe comes with flashy special effects and popcorn” =D
I totaly loled.
“… It’s nonsense” -Itachi
i want the deluxe package?
Lol, I’m quickly loving this rendition of Macbeth a lot more than the original
you saw the *original* rendition? how old ARE you?
That doesn’t necessarily mean his old. Maybe his high school Lit teacher was evil and gave him this instead of the “easy” ones like Romeo and Juliet or Hamlet
i was spoofing the fact that the original RENDITION would have been back in the time of old shakes himself what he means is the original script.
i rather enjoy this version of Macbeth ^_^
i am a true fan of this comic so somebody answer me this can i audition for the voice of peanut or king? Heck id even try out for tarot
If you’re interested in participating in the fan-created Housepets! radio play, you can get more information on [the forums], specifically the main ‘Fan Projects’ board.
ok ill try
The part that says “[the forums]” is the link. You may also click the blue box at the top of this page that says “Forums.” : )
Am I the only person who has been lost on everything thats happened for the last 5 or so comics?
I’ve been following it pretty well, and several others seem to have no problems. Insufficient data exists to objectively answer your question, however.
OK, I’m missing something – who is “SY” supposed to be?
“Touchdowwwn!” (Max in last panel)
“I’m off to kill MacDuff’s family” .. but not MacDuff himself?
