And the movie begins
*hugs* =^. .^=
(gives a hug back)
Yay I see Max =D
yep are hopeless maxie has shown up! paws up if your a max fan!
(Raises paws and jumps up and down happily).
Is max getting jealous?
Yep I would say he is
Whats gunna happen?!!!
Don’t let this be the end!
It will be and if not then it will happen later on.
I just know it.
Max is my favorite character because he reminds me of my cat when i was growing up. And yes my real name is Max if some people are curious.
Where’s Rex? He liked the book.
Foreshadowing a foreseeable comic with Max in it.
AVENGERS WAS AWESOME.
Res isn’t there due to the fact that he is the author and he lives far away from this theater.
Rex is right there, in the farthest corner, peeking from under the seat to avoid being reported to Bino
Thta’s not rex, I don’t think. Not big enough.
Maxwell, Rex != Res.
i for see conflict between peanut and max and maybe a little bit of a jealous outburst
I feel sorry for Max, as Rick has kind of made it clear that fate wants Peanut and Grape to be together. So Max will in the end lose Grape, and Tarot will lose Peanut…
I SO waited for this since this strip
Valerio is a tormentor who posts past comics up to make me depressed do to the fact that Max is gonna get dumped soon.
nah Im joking Valerio.
(Gives Valerio a friendly hug).
Don’t worry, Maxwell. I’m his friendly rival in that department. As long as I’m around, the cats will be triumphant!
Though i rather everyone get along X3
Fight Fight Fight Kiss Kiss Kiss.
(Punches Rootsoforigin in the shoulder and then pats the bruise).
Im not gonna kiss you.
Max gets dumped? I thought Grapenut was sunken ship and only kept around for the fans for shiptease.
I don’t think so.
I think Rick will come back to it since Peanut stated that he wanted more than what they have.
Its an anchored ship. If it was completely dead there would be absolutely no reason to tease anything. (Not to mention very mean to fans of that ship for no reason) It just means its not dead yet. Nor does it mean its going to happen for sure.
you know that little voice in the back of your head well sooner or later it is going to be telling grape
I’m still confused as to why Grape would have to dump Max to…do whatever this additional thing is…with Peanut (I’m hedging because whatever it is they have between them hasn’t really been defined).
She gets different things from each relationship, and there really shouldn’t be to many reasons for conflict which haven’t already been worked on. Max is Grape’s romance, same way Tarot is Peanut’s. Accrimony and drama not required.
Or is this a case of “I totally saw this coming and you can’t say I didn’t”?
I just believe 100% that Rick Griffin will have Max get dumped so grape can be with Peanut.
And if Rick doesn’t? =3
Can’t say I support you madmen, but let’s not jump to conclusions.
If Rick Keeps Max and Grape together then YAY!!!
But I doubt it.
The show must go on! :3
i don’t think he will get dumped but i do think he will be sat down by grape and told that he will have to get used to peanut getting a bit of affection, just like how she sat peanut down and told him that she likes cats more then dogs but that she can understand how he feels.
Max can be an adventurous rascal of a boyfriend.
Peanut is IN LOVE.
It makes a difference
It makes ALL the difference.
Doesn’t mean Max doesn’t love her.
In love, but whether he’s in love as the same grounds as Max in the future depends.
Valerio doesn’t know what he’s saying. :p
We can’t say whether Peanut loves Grape or is in love with her.
But I support the former.
Love really is a battlefield! >.>
I don’t think peanut love grape more as grape is the only female outside of tarot who has the mental ability to withstand him (And do note grape was the first girl he has ever been close to)
RootsofOrigin awesome reference to RT animated short and this strip is just great along with the alt text
I’m not alone anymore.
Finally! Someone who understands me!
Nah s’cool, it’s her brother… uh… Her STEPbrother… Not blood-related at all…
Ah but he’s a dog so s’okay! …Maybe… They’re being very mushy…! Way too much mushy…
It doesn’t look like it, he looks more confused or suspicious to me.
awww.. Peanut is the only dog there. i bet
A strangely disturbed one at that.
awwman i wish i saw that before i said anything.
So Peanut IS the only dog.
also only two humans.
If you’re basing this off 100 attendees, then make that 2%.
Peanut’s there too.
I think the humans are more odd than the dogs.
The Bigglesworths alone are around 10% of the audience
It was a bit strange to see the only two humans! Poor
Mr. Bigglesworth! Those fleas will spread quickly! o.0
I doubt that Mr. Bigglesworth’s scratching is helping that guy’s allergies.
You forgot 0.5% mouse
I mean mice
Totally a statistical outlier. I mean, what other mouse would be caught dead in a theater full of cats?? (and be “caught dead” I mean just that. I mean, the theater is full of cats…)
Sounds like a superhero advert
Nah, Joey’s there fifth from the right.
With the return of Squeak too, we haven’t seen her on panel in almost two years. She seems happy to be back.
nope not true Joey is there second row
heheh Max is left in the dust this time. I like this ending glad it didn’t end in them missing the movie that would have been way to predicable.
OH NO!!! Grape is Cuddling peanut!!!
I expect a confrontation between the three in the next comic.
I think this arc is over. But that would be interesting to see if its not.
The author will break Max and Grape up.
Its how all artists work usually.
You have the one lover lie to the other and then rip out there heart and stomp on it under there paw before leaving the one lover to go to someone else. In this situation Grape is going to rip out Max’s heart and then throw it into a blender and make him eat it before leaving him to be with peanut.
I know it.
I just know it.
You sound hungry.
Mmm heart, the tastiest element.
Cheer up, she’s probably just thanking him for paying for her ticket. I don’t know how rates go in terms of movie tickets, but where I live, night time tickets are rather expensive in my family’s, friend’s, and my opinion.
It’s cute though isn’t it?
plus it’s a midnight premiere. bound to be more expensive.
And they’re SO CUTE! It’s like they’re made for each other!
I think Max is getting Jealous!!!
Yup very Jelly!
grape jelly that is
Gaaaaahhh!!! This is going to be so sad when the breakup happens!!!
But Max don’t jinx it!
Max doesn’t have Peanut’s snuggly factor
Sure he does. X3
Just Peanut wore Grape out. She could use the closest thing to a pillow right now X3
Oh good! They made the movie!
Made it too* (considering the run in with the security guard last strip)
Its going to be a pain for the staff to clean up all that fur, dirt and other surprises! XD
Not getting arrested or kicked out? Priceless!
PS: Oh joey, poor confused little pup joey
I sense a disturbance in the force. (Max is jealous)
i sense a disturbance in Mr. Bigglesworth’s fur XD
So much for security guards and escalator injuries.
Never trust the alt-text.
(Growls and hisses).
INTERSPECIES IS NOT NATURAL!!!!!
(flails arms madly while hissing).
(Puffs up fur and hisses back with claws showing).
And cue the whip cream.
I was thinking more along the lines of American Gladiator with styrofoam batons and the loser takes a dunk in a pool of pink fur dye.
I’m talking about Max foaming at the mouth.
Pink fur dye?
that’s jealousy talking
Tell that to dreamworks
Dogs and cats, living together, total anarchy!
Grape: And the problem with that is?
You knew there are zeedonks, ligers, mules, and other crosses of animals in existence don’t you? Sure the children can’t breed usually, but it still happens
zeedokns = both equidae. Ligers = both felidae. Mules = also equidae. They all belong in the same family which makes it possible. Opposed to that, canidae + felidae pairing isn’t possible, as they belong to different biological families.
or is it equine/canine/feline? Not sure about the spelling in this case.
felidae is Latin and hence the scientific name of the family. Feline is technically the adjective to describe things related to the family, but it has long since been nouned.
Yes I know, but he said interspecies is not natural. I named different species that sometimes naturally mate. They may be of the same genus, but they aren’t the same species and that’s what matters
Also only animals within the same genus can mate and not the same family necessarily.
you better NOT read what I’m writing then…
I like all the new faces ……skin nor furry
Max is getting jealous! And apparently, the Pridelands fandom is near exclusively pets, the way I see it.
i wonder if all the Mr. Bigglesworths sit next to eachother and almost fill up a section?
i mean, theyre AAAALL prideland fans, so im guessing they all go to see it together
Aww another cute picture of Peanut and Grape >w<
Another avatar is born.
Everyone is against me!
Don’t forget to throw away your trash. >=C
Fox has a feline twin on the bottom, neat.
What’s worse is the fleas carried by Mr. Bigglesworth. o.O
Don’t worry, I heard the avengers isn’t all that good.
Hearing is one. Actually going to watch the movie is another.
Watch it with the spoilers! Geez.
That Duke Nukem Reference! I see what you did thar! xD
Super movie filled with super-heroes. I wonder how Pridelands ranks?
Not to mention this theatre is improperly lit.
Everyone I know who’s seen it says it seriously kicks donkey.
Aww, but we needed him unkicked for Shrek 5: the search for more money
Can’t wait to see the Avengers myself!
Wasn’t the Avengers movie directed by the director of Buffy The Vampire Slayer?
Woah what is this? Peanut and Grape Snuggling?
DUN DUN DUN!!!
Wonder how Max feels since he’s RIGHT behind them
hmm, is that scalded heart recipe to go I smell?
Maxwell: “I probably should’ve spoiled Bino with those Avenger spoilers before coming here. Oh, and there’s Grape! And Peanut. Snuggling. Why is Karma trying to tease me today?”
Is Grape cuddling Peanut or did she fall asleep?
Who would fall asleep during the premier of the new Pridelands movie? .. well obviously the one on the far right, but still!
Dunno, I’m hoping it’s the former but I can see it being the latter given she just spent the day in a mall with a creature as energetic as Peanut.
Thanks, there was too much cute and Grapenut goodness there for me not to do it. ^_^
And VERY happy to
Yosh, so very very daaaawwww. I had to go for it for my avatar.
Welcome my child.
*Blinku* Um…what am being welcomed to exactly…? *Is very confused now*
Not you, the avatar! *tosses Shirosune aside*
Welcome my child.
You win this round, Gadget! *shakes fist*
Poor cats sitting behind the humans! they wont see a thing.
I bet grape is going to think the film sucks
Star Wars all over again.
END OF THE WORLD.
Will Max’s jelly moment prelude to a future installment? Hm!
max IS a very competitive guy after all.
Poor Max. sitting all alone this time. >.<
While Karma does bite back, I hope it doesn't make him go over his head, but this would be a nice character development in my opinion. I'm rooting for you, Max!
(Gives GameCobra a Cat T-shirt and puts one on himself).
I should wear this with my Maxwell shirt! <3
Something for everyone!
Actually Max looks more Curious then Jealous….Just my opinion :I Also, HA Everyone scoffed at me when I spoke of teh Grapenut before. Valerio, Rootsoforigion, and I stood against adversity, and now we have our happy moment. Also, We must throw the celebratory Party, thrown when grape and Peanut reappear. Ill handle the movies this time, and get a projector. How does Pridelands Movie sound? :3 (Also Vale and Roots, you have to contribute to the party as well.)
(Is extremely confused that he blinks twice before collapsing onto the ground motionless).
It’s best to assume at this point he’s doing both. Curious why she went with Peanut and not him and if he actually is feeling some sort of weird competition from Peanut. But then again, there could be more to it that Max knows.
(Grabs GameCobra’s shirt from the ground).
WHY HAVEN’T YOU CALLED FOR HELP?!?! (Collapses back onto the ground).
Because I gotta sleep soon!
Im really fine.
OMG I just realized what your pic is of!!!.
I loved Digimon!
I agree. I think he’s confused, but willing to try to understand. I bet he’s a bit jealous, but he and Grape have been through so much together how can he not give her the benefit of the doubt
You, me, us three against the world baby.
And oops I posted outside.
*parties* here’s hot dog and chocolate! I root for grapenut since the very first moment!
And then you saw Kitten Maxwell! *flees!*
A GameCobra Appears!
Brick, I choose you!
kitten Maxie was AWESOME.
I’ll handle the ice cream and white chocolate syrup. Valerio what are you bringing?
and LOTS of butter with them
Are things gonna get crazy?
Should I bring the orange soda?
If you bring the soda, I’ll get the ‘nip.
Ah, it’s time for a good movie. I’m wondering why not swap places Peanut and Max? Enjoy Grapenut. May the force be with you.
No may the fourth be with you
Kohaku, you are right ;D
heh, Mr. Bigglesworth is allergic to humans!
oooh, innnnnteresting interpretation. I thought that was fleas.
“Besides, Avengers sold out”
YOU BET IT DID!
Heh, I’ve got a good title for the next strip. You couldve called
I suppose Sabrina is near? I see Fido and Spoo.
also snuggly grape!!
bonus points for one of the MrBigglesworth family.
those are Joey and Squeak.
Wonder if Lester is there too to criticize the franchise…
Let’s hope not. Other pets want to hear the movie, adter all.
You can tell it’s Joey because there’s no spot on the right eye
Take some anti-histamines, man! They work wonders for cat allergies.
The Avengers was quite awesome, by the way.
Max’s expression is excellent!
And I like most of the other’s faces as well. Of course I probably like the “Don’t forget to throw away your trash” sign the best. What’s the point of putting it there anyways? If they left trash in the stands they are not going to see the sign and decide to go back up and get it.
Nice work like usual!
~The Guy in the Background~
I see Sabrina! Oh look, other characters too.
Uh… I don’t think that’s Sabrina… she’s not tagged as such…
Yah, I thought that was Fiddler and Keys in the corner for a second. But no tag, so it can’t be.
Curses, foiled by my own lack of critical analysis yet again.
At first glance it does look like Sabrina is there with Fox.
This movie is most popular with:
Humans – 0
Dogs – 2 though 6
Cats – All Ages
peanut and joey are the only dogs there o__O
hmm. max looks interested in the whole grapenut thing going on infront of him after all he is grapes gf
I can haz Pridelands 2? KTHXBAI!
This wouldn’t happen to be an Event Captain Ersatz of the Avengers movie? (Think about it! )
Oh yeah, how much do you wanna bet they put the wrong film in? ;P (Ala the Simpsons Comics. )
Is it wrong of me to want Max to dump Grape, in order for a Grapenut relationship to follow?
How could the orange cat behind Max be smiling? His ears are perked up with fervent jelousy thus blocking his/her view of the film! >:(
Also, yay snuggles! <3
Let’s not rule out catnip now. :p
I don’t know why, but it keeps moving you and the person below you down in the comment section until you are the last people on the list. It may be only showing that on my computer though…
no it shows it on myne to! but now your at the bottom!
maybe is to exited to care, also the movie hasnt began.
I wouldnt mind as long as he sits before the movie starts.
oh, and I think is “her”
Hooray. The Housepets Internet is full of cat macros too!
I’m guessing it was less a case of “Aw, that’s cute. I can just hear him saying ‘can haz brainz’!” and more a case of “Why am I not on the internet, dad?!? Keyboard Cat’s been on for like 10 years and he can’t even play the keyboard!!!“
More like Erudite Ferrets than Lolcats?
Rick MUST endorse this! For great hipster justice!
For some reason, I already like that kitty in the front row
Ew, is squeak [i]inside[/i] the popcorn?
Any failed HTML codes you may or may not see above are non-existent and completely a hallucination.
must have been the orange soda…
I’m sure most any other cat wouldn’t have minded getting a mouse treat in the middle of their popcorn. *crunch munch squeak nom crunch urp*
not the first time…
“But Grape, you said you were busy!”
i am busy.
Peanut keeps me busy
WOOT!~ I saw the midnight showing of Avengers! Best freaking movie ever!
Oh my, did Rick Griffin make an appearance in the comic ^_^ hehe, reddish//brown hair dude looks like you as previous drawn.
I’m surprised Joey isn’t in his cat suit Love the cuddles. Hope that Maxie is just curious and will work things out with Grape instead of being jealous. I may love Grapenut, but I hate bad breakups
Probably just wanted to see the face on the ticket attendant
Now, if this worked properly I haz a new picture of my mate and I. Are we as adorable as Grapenut?
Dangit I don’t think it worked :’(
Im kinda sure it did
Oh cool I couldn’t see it until now lol
“do the laundry” they said
“it will be fun!” they said
I dont know if Max is curious
Or just jealous
I THINK BOTH!
Peanut and Grape are so cute and perfect for each other. I can’t wait for them to hook up…that’s if Rick plans on doing that. In which case I’m looking forward to Bino finding out. Bino yelling and making fun of Peanut and more then likely Grape coming in and dishing out a major beat down on Bino. >=D
Lol this one is just plain funny! BTW, I am going to see The Avengers at 7:40 tonight! Because I am turning 18 tomorrow!
haha max is so jealous
I don’t like Mr. Bigglesworth, you should’ve put Mr. Bigglesworth in this instead.
I can’t believe you’re discounting Mr. Bigglesworth! She would have been perfect for the lead female part, along with her fiancee, Mr. Bigglesworth.
i resent that! Mr. Bigglesworth SHOULD DO EVERYTHING!!!! AND NO ONE ELSE!
at least give ms.bigglesworth some thing to do or say
Max is like, “What are they doing? ):l “
omg alt text: besides avengers sold out. XD
the sign says forget to away your rash! >:(… lol
That sounds like a skin treatment cream. “Forget to Away(TM) your rash? Long-lasting Away(TM) will do away with your rash, even when you forget a dose! Away it, with Away(TM)! Side effects include drowsyness, nausia and rash. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you are certain how you react to Away(TM). Consult your doctor if you have suffered from, or live in areas where certain types of fungal infections may be present. Pregnent women or women who may become pregnant should not use or handle Away(TM) due to risk of a certain kind of birth defect. Use only as directed.”
amd you did that so ferfect and did you just say a cream to get rid of rash can cause a rash XD
How else do you think they got their treatment rate all the way up to 37%? “Doctor, I don’t think it’s working, my rash is still here.”. “Nonesense. It worked great. That rash is just a side effect.”
Lol. It does.
dawwwww peanut and jelly <3
and uh oh….do i see jelousy in max? XD
I called it!!!! Grape and Peanut have a moment and BAM Max sees it.
(lol at meme reference) “read housepets! they said” “its great they said” well they were right
joeys face is all like… DERP?
Mr. Bigglesworth appears here and not Mr. Bigglesworth because, apparently, Mr. Bigglesworth told Mr. Bigglesworth that him was better hiding the video camera to tape the movie than Mr. Bigglesworth and Mr. Bigglesworth
but they were alll wrong because in the end Mr. Bigglesworth did the best job at everything this includes sneeking in without a ticket
Everyone ignores the talking humans, only pay attention to the awesome animals. So much adorable.
P.S. Avengers was awesome. I recommend everyone watch it with their pets, if you have any. Hulk Smash!
But are they still adorable when they’re lifting weights and blowing stuff up?
(Listens to Born to be Alive while waiting for the next comic to come out).
i listen to Bad Day… on repeat… ALL THE TIME and i think its starting to depress me.
“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” had a Musical number “Comedy Tonight”. The tagline of the song was “Tragedy Tomorrow, Comedy Tonight”.
The implication here is that tragedy will follow, probably involving Max. Personally I’m hoping to see some relationship “musical chairs” and Peanut and Grape finally be together. The whole universe seems unhappy because of all that tension.
ITS PEANUT BUTER JELLY THIME
Where he at? (4x) Now There he go (4x) XD
That’s not Mr. Bigglesworth, that’s Mr. Bigglesworth!
*sits in the back alone*
(Sits with King Herra).
THEY LOOK SO CUTE!!!! should of had penut blushing <3
I see Grape hugging Peanut, I see Max angry, I hope the romantic relationship between Grape and Peanut begins to take importance in story.
RIIICK is that you with the reddish brown hair?
That guy looks a lot like Joel.
Erm, actually, I take it back. He looks a lot like the fat PETA guy, not Joel.
I see grape/nut snuggles, and a max wondering why Grape isn’t with him.
