Egad, peanut! o.o
Alt text for phoners: “By the way mom asked why she keeps finding claw marks on the ceiling fan” Peanut had nothing to do with it ^_^
He’ll make a great smoke detector!
Yes he would. * peanut fire detector for sale*
Well, in large numbers, peanuts are known to spontaneously combust.
Calling back to the previous comment: The average peanut contains about 5 kcalories. I think. Or maybe it was 5 kjoules (approx 1.2 kcal). At least, when you burn a number of them in series and measure how much heat energy they impart to a small beaker of water.
How many Peanuts would you have to pile together and light on fire to equal Tiger’s daily consumption?
And more importantly, who’s going to pick the short straw of illustrating that scene?
(Oddly this does mean if Peanut really does contain only 5 kcalories, he both partly balances-out Tiger’s overconsumption, and could well qualify as one of the most energy-efficient organisms on earth)
Well, since cashews come in at 7 Calories (or 7000 calories, little case), peanuts would have to be 5 Cal, since they’re only slightly smaller.
Reminds me of the experiment we did in high school to measure the calories in a cashew. Suspend 100 mL of water in a soda an above a cashew. Set cashew on fire. Measure difference in water temperature before and after cashew is burnt out.
peanuts are just to cute
I dont need more explanation than that ^.^
when did we swich from peanut to ‘peanuts’ as in the actual nut??????????? o.O
And what’s so cute about peanuts? The salt???
I thought we were still talking about Peanuts like ‘Peanut’ (the comic Peanut) but in plural form….
Cause i was
but there’s only one peanut o.O if there were more grape would never get any peace to take a nap….
but if there were more, they would be able to ask each others doubts and not disturb Grape……..
Aaand then they would eventually get confused and ask Grape anyways.. ¬¬
Yeah better one Peanut…
I don’t know, I think he might go off excessively even when there’s no smoke.
I do believe that was a ten on the richter scale.
Peanut’s so adorable. :3
I agree 100%. I can’t think of a time when he isn’t!
genetics at his best!
i love the 2nd pannel he looks so inocent!
Peanut’s the greatest! ^^
One to eleven all at once.

well of course it didnt work shes a cat there heavy sleepers
My cat wakes up soon as you walk into the room.
Mines a heavy sleeper :/ untill you touch it or pick it up
Let me refraze that untilled you pick it up.or bug it by poking it repeatedly untilled he gets annoyed but smoky bears a fatish cat and doesn’t like to be held “he’s fluffy” they say but I don’t think so >°°<
Cats have two modes: shallow and deep sleep.
It’s been awhile since one of these.
Which is exactly what makes using it now so great!
Ah adorable as usual
Sleep is always denied if Peanut is involved. ‘Course, I wouldn’t mine having him as a roomie. :3
Aww poor grape….
Peanut next time, try shaking her….
He probably has scars on his foreleg from the last time he tried that.
Wake her up by rubbing her tummy. That works with my cats. Even the ones who don’t like it… it’s so cute when they start stretching, then realize what’s happening and are all OMG about it.
Or play a recording of a can-opener.
“Wait a minute, why am I in the kitchen?”
“And we have thumbs, anyway.”
if she likes treats shake the bag xD that works with my cat, unless hes in deep sleep mode
i wonder how many times this happen
will always be one too many for her
and will continue happening
As Phineas once said, “It needs more Peanut Butter.” though he was making a second rollercoaster
been a while since we seen a GRAPE!
It’s only been like two weeks dude… 25th May…
That’s to long.
yeah, i mean if we dont get a regular dose of grape and peanut i cant even begin to fathom what will happen.
Why does this remind me of Garfield? o_o (I swear I’ve seen this joke done before in the Garfield comic.)
i bet Grape hate Mondays too.
I thought that was Tiger’s job.
He hates Thursdays, not Mondays.
I saw it first in a Warner Brothers’ carton.
This is exactly how it happens with my family. They tell me to wake them gently, and then they don’t wake up, so I have to almost cream while shaking them. Then again, they don’t react exactly like Grape. Well, except for one of them who does almost exactly what Grape does.
I truly do share Peanut’s sentiments.
They never wake up when you try to wake em up gentle -____- then they get mad at me cause i shook them violently for five seconds cause nothing else worked.
Well, Peanut, maybe there was a reason she asked you to do it nicely.
she’s watching you not letting her sleep…
Oh Peanut, you’re so subtle.
poor grape lol, I’m a bit like that meself
lol how did my coment go of the page like that? oh well… also you forgote the
PEACH PIE ON THE BEACH
I do not get the reference.
I looked it up and found a Devoesque Japanese band on YouTube. I am even more confused.
Peanut understands piano and forte, but doesn’t grasp the crescendo.
While you’re up there, Grape, could you change the light bulb?
Give him a break, he took Akkadian by correspondence, not Italian!
Ah I miss this kind of stuff :3
Grape should sleep in a hammock. You can’t jump out of hammock like that. In fact, the ability to get out at all without landing on your face is accomplishment. Regardless, if Grape slept in a hammock she wouldn’t have to un-claw the ceiling any more.
Next frame, Hammock all in a twist with random purple limbs poking out of it.
“Peanut, when I get out of this, I will kill you. Lovingly.”
Seems like it would do pretty well, actually. I might be willing to pay money to see that. Not in person, though, because I would be laughing and subsequently get my face clawed by an angry kitty. o,.,o
death by loving smothering huh? ah, the good ol’ days…
Grapenut fan party! I’m bringing the movie this time! Rio sound good? Also Val, what are you bringing? If you’re a grapenut fan, reply with what your bringing to the party. :3
I’m bringing spaghetti. :3
Grape, you KNOW how traditions work
“wake me up gently” is just a trick to get a few more moments of sleep
yep … been there … done that
He should try a bucket of cold water next time….quietly.
i say they flip the couch onto her… that’s what i’d do.
(has done it, loved it.)
Peanut, you never fail to make me laugh!
Situations like this always so funny
I missed this. It’s a classic!
It reminds me of this! http://youtu.be/MYi7365Y6Sw?t=5m16s XD
Peanut should try poking her instead. Always worked with my cat (though i doubt Grape will react as calmly).
Ceiling cats, always funny.
not mah spider kitteh?
Grape McCat cancels sleep: Interruptet by noisy Peanut.
…I really love them.
Peanut, learn the value of incremental volume change!
So THAT’S where all Tiger’s excess energy is going… it’s being diverted through subspace into Grape’s “springing awake” muscles. I have a feeling Peanut does this a LOT, so it may well be all getting used up just for this.
Dummy, he should have yelled new pride land series is coming out.
Not a bad idea at all
Except then Grape would have mauled him when she found out it wasn’t.
Besides, Grape knows the release date for the next book by heart. She looks it up on Amazon every few days to remind herself.
MMMM… but if she’s all groogy from just waking up, she wouldnt notice he’s lying
She’d realize it soon enough!
“MOM, Grape is stick to the ceiling again.”
“I’ll get the spatula.”
Like chewing Gum under the table
It’s like Velcro – the ceiling is the loopy part, and Grape has the hooks!
A hydro-dynamic spatula with port/starboard attatchments and the turbo drive.
actually it’s called a flipper
You havent watched enough sponge bob haha
Also isnt flipper the name of a dolphin in a movie?
You sir have watched too much sponge bob hahaha
In Grape’s tongue, he is known as Napbane – Catborne.
Dramatic Narrator: But there is one Grape fears. In her tongue he is Dogahkiin- Griffin born!
Peanut: GRAPE RO DAH!
Peanut should probably use an air-horn next time, probably be quieter.
Or better, a Vuvuzela!
Bag of treats?
Please nobody say “catnip”
The repair for the ceiling will come out of your allowance, Grape…
Grape: but i only make 2$ a week! Q~Q
Peanut next time, try to kiss her between her ears.
ah…the sweet smell of fur shedding.:)
And the subtlety award goes to … ^^
Hilarious imagining those other claw marks already present next to a very unhappy Grape pinned on the ceiling xD
Anyone else read GRAPE as a bark? XD
I LOVE that bark
Peanut has no sense of in-between. >.<
Sure he does. Right now he is in between a whisper and a sonic boom (leaning toward the latter).
i stop reading fora month and this happens…
some things never change do they
and thats why I like the comic
that happend to me my mom tryed to wake me up every hour after 9 AM and at 2 PM she finaly woke me up with a spray bottle with water in it and im like “YOU COULD HAVE SHAKEN ME!” and she said that if she did i would get mad at her and im like ‘AND WATER WONT MAKE ME MAD HOW!?!?!?!” and then she said “i tried poking you with sewing needles at 11 but it didnt work” and im like -_-
im a deep sleeper
Hahahaha youre lucky.
my dad only pull me up and says “UP!” if that doesnt work the feeling of being falling back before he release me will do it.
getting poked with sewing needles and sprayed with water is lucky? also i sleep in a bunk bed on the bottom bunk and the top bunk is only 2.5 feet above me so i also hit my head pretty hard
Yup, very lucky, sure is better than my nephew punching me on the face…
A bunk bed!? I had one when i was 13!
and I know that feeling Bro…I know
oh my LOL
A better copy of the Claude Cat and Frisky Puppy cartoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieCSUnVL-_s&feature=related
peanut was just playing the song of his people. “Bark in a-major”
A-Major is capitalized, whereas a-minor is in lower case.
So you’d have the Great Wakeup Suite in G-Major, and the Home Alone Howling Blues in b-minor.
so much dog songs coming from a cat…
Eh? Oh! Grape tells me all about them. It seems that Peanut offers “live performances” on an all-too-regular basis.
Insert opera note on panel 3.
My bro does that to me DX dad will try to wake me up…doesn’t work, tells my bro “Sick him” so my bro comes in, opens window, sunlight, yelling, singing, chorus line, aliens come down, the banana king sticks a big ol banana in my ear, and I am awake XP
Yeah… a nice wake up
She doesn’t sleep that way, she only wakes up like that.
i wonder if this worked…
dear lord, it did…
every brother sister team ever!!! so cliche.
MOM! peanut keeps yelling at me to wake me up please tell him to stop.
