Ooh something new today! ^^
Interesting … at first I thought that this strip was an “One-off”, know Im realizing that it is a new arc …
hmm look at that
Alt text: I can sing! That means I’m Inherently talented at songwriting!
at least it wasn’t the other way around. “I can write songs! That means I’m inherently talented at singing!
That’s the Bob Dylan tactic.
But the times, they are a-changing!
I have trouble with most folk singers. Too many of them strike me as cynical intellectuals that think they are kin to Woody Guthry.
ferrets! havent seen them in a while
heheh…. it is all laughable awful
Not since April, I think.
Ferrets *and* chipmunks.
And that’s the list time I use *this* mobile browser again. too hard to see where you’re posting.
Ferrets + Chipmunks = Mass hysteria
Are they chipmunks? They looks like gerbils to me (to avoid copyright infringement, of course, like, their names…).
Sorry, Ferrets and Ground Squirrels. They go together like a house on fire. Wait a second. Sirens, smoke, people screaming. Have you ever wondered where “go together like a house on fire” comes from? I mean, it makes no sense at all!
I’ve never actually heard that saying. I have heard “goes together like peanut butter and jelly”, so I’m just gonna use that instead.
Sony, ferrets, chipmunks. Sirens, smoke, people screaming.
Sounds like a good analogy to me.
Hah this should prove interesting.
They’re not chipmunks, they’re ground squirrels!
I’ve been saying this for years.
Literaly years. It’s like Rock took his argument straight from my head, where’s HIS origionality.
Allllllllllllllllllllan!!!!!!! (Hey, someone was gonna do it)
i believe your missing a v after llllllllllllllllll
Nope, check the tags.
Yay copyright !!! #Sarcasm
Can “Ferret-etts” be far behind?
oh didnt notice that xD
now where is the one called Howard Taft?
He’s kneeling before Zod.
*gasp* how did u know :0
i love the fact that he used Teddy D. instead of the chubby ones real name. lol
Oh god XD
House pets! Avoiding copyright infringement since July 30th 2012
Now if this had a like button i would like this post lol
Since even before that, I’d say.
That cookie looks tasty!
I like the non-copyright violating names.
Something very familiar about those guys…
Can’t quite put my finger on it…
I just love Rock as a producer, if I ever make a film I would love to have him as a producer or/and director or/and writer
I trust Rock directing a possible Halo movie XD
not the directing but the halo movie
He needs to direct the next Pridelands movie.
YES !!! just … YES !!!
Right now there is only one of it, right ?
Allright! “Pridelands 3-D” – Lion spears coming right at ya!! Does Babylon Gardens Mall have IMAX? It’s TOTALLY worth the extra cash!
And Special Appearence by the “My Name is Earl” guy as the voice of CG Spot (Superdog)
Oh yeah ! I completely forgot about the second one
Duke by far is my favorite
Disagree, my vote goes for Rock
I say Lana she reminds me of Sasha
My vote goes for all of them! xD
I’m still having trouble telling them apart
You and Zach: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/07/27/make-profit-not-war/
Alt text please for this poor phone user?
“I can sing! That means I’m inherently talented at songwriting!”
i can sing but i’m horrible at song writing
i can write songs but i hate singing!
Lol nice. Yet another boy band, but this time with animals. That always makes things better ;P Well I’m sure they are better than Justin Beiber anyway.
And don’t forget to duck while your at it.
what duck http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/10/04/where-did-he-come-from/
Just imagine how their voices would sound like.
The artwork on the wall is either REALLY good or REALLY bad.
I can’t tell, I’m not snobby enough.
Modern art in a nutshell. “I could do that.” “Yea, but you didn’t.”
Duke likes the artwork!
Pshaw! It’s only great if you attended a great institution beforehand. Without the proper background, you could not possibly have understood the deeper meanings inherent in the artwork, thereby negating it.
Do you mean the artists intended meaning, or the meaning most people take away from it despite any counter-reasoning from the artist.
I suppose it depends on if the author’s dead.
That’s what ‘death of the author’ means, right? <.<
The artwork is called “A Bunch Of Squiggles Hate Green”
You can feel the hate…
Looks more like Who’s been leaving this stuff at the back of the fridge (mixed media).
Gasp! Duke’s reached his squiggle period!
*Gasp* It’s the creater of the comic! Fan-boys, CHARGE!!! LOL
Well, there’s that one they did for… hm… easter? 4th July? Lsbor day? I know it’s about a holiday, but…
This has potential to be a great arc!
I like the painting in the back……
It’s that awkward moment when I realize that I kinda like LMFAO’s music and yes I realize most of it is terrible but I also like Nickleback so….My opinion means nothing in this area.
I hadn’t heard of LMFAO until this strip, I thought they were another copyright-avoiding reference to something like YMCA.
Yea Rock, how else would such unbearable acts like Well I Never, Juicestain Beebear, Westfife, Aunty Winecellar, and Black Side Of The Cheese survive without covering other peoples music
Don’t forget Hayseed Dixie, Dread Zeppelin and Richard Cheese…
LOL love this comics series! Too funny.
lol it’s 4:19 where i am, i think it said that on here i’m an hour back lol
My life is so 2 hours ago
mine is 1 hour ago >_<
I see someone theorized on the TVTropes Housepets YMMV page that Alvin and the Chipmunks escaped from the Housepets Universe. Guess they weren’t too far off
Housepets is on tvtropes? *checks* oooooo… uh oh, now I’m stuck reading tv tropes again, HELP!
The first step in escaping from TV Tropes is learning to resist the temptation to click on the link or type in the address in order to go search for something.
The knowledge, it will not help you. Let it pass you by.
since when is knowledge not helpful? Blasphemy, sir!
Don’t forget to fix the typos when you’re in there.
As well as the second example bullet point slots.
This would make a great show. But it would get too mainstream. Or many I just like cult stuff
TV KILLS COMEDY!!
They only have STUPID IDEAS such as casting TOBY TURNER on freaking Annoying Orange!!
Never utter this blasphemy again if you value your mortal soul.
*likes this comment*
The amount of sophmoric drivel on TV and the worst thing you can think of is a questionable casting?? Honestly, just the ads are bad enough.
i was tired okay.
howabout a how shtupid it is to have a show about teen moms?
Also Tobuscus and Annoying Orange are COMPLETELY different genres of comedy.
I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, and yet, I have a feeling I should probably be glad about that?
yes you should.
“Alan and the Squirrels”? I have a hunch that their manager is named Daniel.
Rock’s asking them to give him Something immediatly makes me think of George Harrison singing with a high squeaky voice.
Thats totally Alvin and the Chipmunks.
No, it’s the similar but legally distinct Alan and the Ground Squirrels
aka “Lawyer Friendly Cameo”. Certified by Mr London and everything!
Of course they’re not chipmunks! They don’t have that stripe down their backs!
You can’t see their backs. But they do seem to have longer tails than chipmunks.
Are you calling me a chipmunk, Frank?
i never seen a black furred chipmunk before!
It would be cool to see one! :3
You inspire me:
I never saw a purple cat
It would be cool to see one
And let me clue you where I’m at:
I’d rather see than be one!
Bravo! Well done!
I wonder what holiday these guys sang about in their first original single?
Earth Day, obviously
Finally somebody takes action against this group to update them
As I recall,Simon Simeon was always getting caught up in Alvin Alan’s wacky schemes. Just imagine him meeting Karishad.
oh gods, alvin and the chipmunks knockoffs XD
Rick Griffin: Trolling copyrights since Tiger and Marvin appeared.
Just wait till the day some other comic features a cat named Raisin and a dog named Nutella
Now I want to make this!
…probably won’t though
I am offended, as a professional singer I pride myself on hiring songwriters that make sure I have good music that they wrote..
wait a minute.
Nicely done with those three squirrels.
Oh, dear…You know, it’s nice knowing I’m not the only one who dislikes the new Alvin stuff. Even though I haven’t watched them.
Intentional or not, that hit on LMFAO was well-deserved and incredibly funny.
I only listen to them for the childish pleasure of pretending to be the guy tweaking the synth’s main oscillator frequency dial up and down during the break. Honest.
(A lot of commercial dance music is like the picture on the wall: I could do that quite easily… most of us could, in fact. But, we -didn’t-…)
Well, I like the Chipmunks.
Okay, this triggered a thought.
So, they’re a band. They’re animals. It specifically mentions scantily-clad dancers.
So. . . are the dancers human, or animals? If they’re animals, as one would assume, what exactly would they be wearing to be considered “scantily-clad”? Do they actually have to put ON clothing?
I’m confused now. ;_;
Minimalistic collars: only the tag is visible
Like in Guys and Dolls.
I was thinking that refered to their version of the Chippettes (Squirellettes?) who appeared in the second CG movie and in both 2D and 3D form were drawn more human hybredishly then the male chipmunks.
The phrase “human-chipmunk hybrid” brings up some horrifically squicky questions…
I’d like to think it was either female chipmunks with collars made out of fishing line and tags that are basically stud earrings, or your typical (human) gangsta rap dancing girls, in a bid to catch the lucrative teenage-human-boy market.
Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries.
What is LMFAO? How am I supposed to read these bunch of letters?
Loving My Friends And Others
It’snot like that trio was ever worthy anyway |P~ Even back at the 90s beginnings they were as much of a stock cartoon as you can imagine. Ignorable then, ignorable now.
Is it me or do the Chipmucks here look like the 3 from Alvin and the Chipmunks lol
Are you referring to Alan and the Ground Squirrels?
Ha-ha! Great Kitsume’s a fan of a low-order rodent boy band!
I’m confused … do people not hire songwriters / buy music + lyrics from songwriting agencies any more? The majority of Goffin + King’s earnings came from writing wildly popular “original” songs for other artists, rather than their own comparitively limited recording output and performances, after all.
…or is the point that Rock (and possibly the Ground Squirrels) aren’t clued in to this idea?
I had no idea about that! Maybe I should send in that song I wrote to Linkin’ Park…
ha awsomeness cant wait for more =3
XD I can see a new story arc happening already!
I haven’t seen these guys in a while
