  1. Ryufire

    That looks fun :P

    • Frank

      For the actors? For the characters? or for the audience?

      • TooLateToApologize

        For everyone! Everything is equal when it comes to having fun!

    • holmebrian

      alt text (And that’s the reason it’s so hard to make fun of musical theater, because they kind of know already how silly it is)

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      Count me in! :D

  2. Dissension

    I plan to be greatly amused by this arc.

    (Also, Peanut is still super-adorable.)

    • pb98

      finally we are back to a peanut and grape style arc

    • mr.muchy

      Well come on when isn’t peanut adorable?

      • FoxBlood35000

        Peanut is the pinnacle of adorable. He’s can manage it without even trying.

        • mr.muchy

          yes he is

      • pb98

        you are absolutely right munchy

    • illeatyourself

      I plan for this arc to be a filler comic. XD

  3. T-Squared

    Uh… what?


    • thefirstonethere

      nothing makes sense anymore :/

      • valerio

        Peanut and Grape make perfect sense.

        • I like your hat

          what kind of illegal activities?

  4. Xane

    Shouldn’t that be a “carp” game? :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There’s something fishy about that.

      • Draven

        Not unless they were playing craps.

      • Tynach

        We’ll just have to see what Rick can fish up for this one.

  5. IceKitsune

    I have no idea what is going on.

    • Frank


      • IceKitsune

        Obviously. I mean I know nothing of this play and therefore don’t (and won’t) know what is happening.

      • Texascat018

        parody of what?

        • Valerio

          parody of the namesake 1955 musical

          • Baxtrr

            Oh FFS people, it’s a brilliant musical that anyone with a decent cultural background should know about. Go to Wikipedia and read the cast list and plot synopsis and you’ll be fine!

    • Cristian100n

      Atleat im not the only one

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Don’t worry, Rick will make it all clear momentarily.

      • Zarvain

        As clear as the smoke trail of 1000 fireworks, all fired in close proximity to one another; though the end result should be just as entertaining.
        *gets bucket-o-popcorn with extra butter*

  6. Daggy

    Oh man I’ve seen this play. Let us be amused…

  7. Dontlookmenaked


  8. Zaitsev

    Do they actually have audiences or do they just imaginate them?

    • Zarvain

      A) the pet parents;
      B) for these they are at least simi-aware of the 4th wall, that means us;
      C) friends not shown or;
      D) all of the above.

      • Monkey D. Luffy

        D) all of the above.

      • holmebrian

        you forgot
        E)The celestial spirits (the universe is watching)

        • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

          I’d totally choose that option. xD

  9. Draven

    Eye predict a lack of I’s in the near future. Wait…

    • Zaitsev


  10. GameCobra

    *Wishes they were wearing real hats*

    never seen the play, but just the name of it alone is higly amusing. i shall not spoil myself and read the details until after the arc is over =3

  11. Valerio

    Rick Griffin is guilty of introducing me to Shakespear with the ‘Imaginate Macbeth’ arc.
    Now I’ll have to wait the end of this arc before I get a DVD of G&D.
    *waves fist* RRRIIIICCCK!

  12. Valerio

    ‘Do you wash your mother with that mouth?’
    Best joke of the strip!

  13. dibs

    can’t help but notice a bit of a different style with Peanut’s face, at least with his eyes. i was wondering if this would be a lasting change, but then i remembered King had a sort of similar thing going on in the dog show when he was onstage with Duchess, so now i’m guessing this goes along with the presenting a musical – theatre setting- thingy… (whatever you would call this setting / situation)

    • Javier

      peanut’s cuter than usual XD

  14. Valerio

    Peanut is DIVINELY cute in the first panel :D

    • Gabe23

      I can’t be more agree with you

    • Husgi

      Ohhh yeah

    • Crackles

      Isn’t he always?

      • Gabe23


  15. D-Rock

    Never seen that. Still, this is already sounding like a funny arc.

  16. TooLateToApologize

    Huzzah! More Imaginate!

  17. gamer35

    wow! i want to sing about illegal activitiez! i hope fido aint around

  18. Gabe23

    mmmmmmmm … another play that I´ve never seen/read

    • P0lo

      At least they teach Macbeth in schools. If Guys and Dolls isn’t on Netflix this is going to go right over my head…

      • Gabe23

        yeeeeaaaaahh……. I didnt read Macbeth in school soooooo ….

        • P0lo

          Lol, neither did I…

          But they played the movie! :3

  19. anon_omis

    This is why I never wanted to see this play. That and I thought the title was…creepy.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It should be “Toms and Queens”, or maybe “Dogs and Charming Young Women”. Or the forest players (from Charles Christopher) could do “Bucks and Vixens”.

      • anon_omis

        Actually none of those make it sound better…

  20. Valerio

    Mmm, apparently tarot still doesn’t trust Grape to the psycholodeck thing…

    • Frank

      Humans think anything they do is cute!

      …unless it results in a flooded living room

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Imaginate Spot turning up in Guys and Dolls.

  21. Verp

    What do the humans make of their behavior?

  22. John willow

    Hmm, I wonder why max isn’t there

    • SamBlob

      Maybe he’s playing a character not yet seen?

      • Crackles

        He’s definitely going to be playing Sky

  23. Robin Bobcat

    Heh… ‘Do you wash your mother with that mouth?’ Feline culture for the win.

  24. Tarot&Peanutfan210

    This is adorable I love the little paper bag hats

  25. andrew N.

    Yay! An Imaginate arc!

  26. Renkun

    Had Sabrina in the last panel her Arc lost?

  27. icarus

    welp. the musical fan in me laughed long and hard at the last panel.

    but oh, how i love guys & dolls.

  28. Salenstormwing

    Ah, more theater! Yay! Also, I want to sing about illegal activities too. That sounds like a ton of fun.

    • BillyMT

      Then I’m throwing dice in the alley,
      Officer Leeroy comes up and he’s like
      “Hey, I thought I told you…”
      And I’m like “YEAH WHATEVER!”

      *guitar solo*

      • holmebrian

        cause this is my united states of whatever!

  29. SamBlob

    Never seen Guys and Dolls. Pity this wasn’t about The Threepenny Opera instead. Maxwell would have been great as McHeath, a.k.a. Mack the Knife.

  30. Lycanthrope

    Since no one has already:

    Alt-Text for iPhone readers: “And that’s the reason it’s so difficult to make fun of musical theater, because they kinda already know how silly it is”

  31. Erikuto

    Alt text? (phone)

  32. DanTwelve3

    PB&J Theater Company… love it.

  33. holmebrian

    so that means there playing with dice then?
    cause she said not to.

  34. holmebrian

    or maby there playing with mice cause they heard her wrong and spo finally is in another arc

  35. BillyMT

    And we’re back to my most favorite irony of the whole comic XD

    So we have here two of the oracles, beings aware of the metaverse as a whole, with knowledge and abilites that could easily bend reality their way if any of the Gods so wished (and Bahamut was distracted… I’m looking at you Pete!), and how do they spend their remianing life time?

    Playing theather!

    Culture and scenic arts overrule world-domination plots, and GOOD DAY SIR! *slams suitcase shut*

  36. Shoan

    I think Grape now has a valley girl accent… you know, like totally that cute kind of voice that the like the cutest girls use and junk, anyways Peanut looks so cute in the paper bag, I’m totally texting this to my BFF

  37. Tea Leaves da Panda

    I almost died at the last panel.

  38. Nintendosagafan

    LOLZ do u wash your mother with that mouth? XDDDD nice one XD

  39. CyberSkull

    That sums up most musicals nicely.

    • Xane

      Not to mention all bystanders will spontaneously break into song with you as well as immediately learn perfect choreography.

      • Frank

        “♪How does she knowwwww you love her? How does she knowwwww she’s yoooours?♪”
        “You know what? Let’s walk.”
        “♪How does she know that you love her?♪”
        “Wait a minute, he knows the song too?”

        • Xane

          I have got to rent that movie at some point.

        • The_Rippy_One

          Best scene in the movie.

  40. Tendo

    Peanut looks adorable in that first panel… and I have absolutely no idea what Guys and Dolls is about.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s about singing loudly about your illegal activities!

      • Xane

        Also where Timon and Pumbaa’s voice actors learned to play off each other so well.

    • The_Rippy_One

      Okay, quicky plot shot:

      All the guys are gamblers. All the ladies want the guys to stop gambling. Supporting male needs a place to stage a game, involves male lead in a bet to get it, relating to female lead, who needs to fill her local chapter house with repentant sinners or it will be shut down. She dates male lead in return for a full house of sinners, male support uses the chapter house for the game, the leads fall for each other, return to discover the game. Misunderstandings occur. Male lead goes to the game to fulfill his part of the deal and get back into her good graces. He bets everyone at the game: he wins, they go to the mission, they win, he’ll pay them $1,000.00 dollars each. The dice are rolled. Intermission. All the gamblers arrive at the chapter house, having lost their bet. Mission gets saved. Police arrive, Male Lead confesses all to clear female lead (gambling bring illegal, and penalties can be applied to the person who owns the building used for such purposes). Female lead forgives male lead. Epiloge: Leads are married, male support has gone straight, will shortly be married.

      Not touched on – subplot: male support’s very awkward love life.

  41. Facade Kitsune

    i see they have included Sabrina in there pretending fun

    • Draven

      Sabrina was in the last imaginate arc too.

  42. Xero1414

    Awww, so cute 1st panel ^_^

  43. ShadowDan

    I wonder who will play Joey Biltmore? Not a huge part, but I played it my junior year of highschool.

  44. Albertina

    rock on! i love this stuff.

  45. Pariah

    I can die happy now.

  46. bayan escort

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  47. The_Rippy_One

    Thank you. For this. Very much, “Thank you!”

  48. Angelina

  49. Maxwell

  50. I like your hat

  51. Coralina
