  1. Ryu

    Yush, New arc new adventure! ^-^ Double Peanut! o.o

  2. Erikuto

    I wonder if this counts as deja vu <- alt txt

    I thought 2 of the same beings couldn't exist at the same time or esle a rip in space-time would happen….or something

    • bene

      Well there in a time paradox now, if you ever played time splinters 2 you know they can be a really bugger to get out of. Less your the Dr. And he’s not

      • Argent Stonecutter

        There’s only a paradox if he does something different the second time around. And I can’t believe Peanut isn’t getting it, with his appetite for books he has to have read “All You Zombies”[1] or “The Man Who Folded Himself”[2] or “Try To Change the Past”[3].

        [1] Robert Heinlein, the original time loop story.
        [2] David Gerrold (who was also the author of Trouble with Tribbles), a really twisty time paradox novel.
        [3] Fritz Leiber, one of the time wars stories.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      I think PsyCon is technicly outside of time and space.

      • bene

        Ya I think you can argue that point

        • mr.fluffy

          so many questions to ask myself without looking crazy

          • cheetahwolf

            you’re talking to yourself, no matter what you will look crazy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Not if you’re talking to your time-travelling future self.

          • SecretAgent000

            Then THEY look crazy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Serves them right for butting in on a private conversation.

      • Erikuto

        So that means 2 of the same beings CAN exist at the same time then and it won’t matter?

        I think my brain is melting…..I’m overthinking too much X_X

    • darastrixen

      Longish story short: If you believe the optimistic physicists, it should be theoretically possible. If you believe in the precepts of reason, no, this would be Impossible Absolutely.

      But it’s a story, with magic; go with it.

  3. GarrisonSkunk

    Yea, More PsyCon!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      And more other worldly root beer!

  4. IceKitsune

    Well this was a bit unexpected. But its nice to see this is back. Also two Peanuts! Awesome.

  5. Xane

    This is entirely Tarot’s fault and also Tarot’s fault!

    • Crystalwind

      Is that double mention of Tarot because you think that a second version of Tarot also exists, and worked with the normal one to create this situation, or because you’re doubly blaming her?

      • Xane


        • SecretAgent000

          I find this statement 50% accurate with a 50% margin of error.

  6. xhunterko

    No, it does not count!

  7. Cristian100n

    2 Peanuts
    Im Lost

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Time travel, Peanut is going to stabilize the time loop soon.

      • Cristian100n

        yeah at some point i started to understand the situation, so the Peanut behind the counter is the present peanut? and the one in front is from the future?

  8. The Maverick Man

    Peanut no, you’ve created a time paradox

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      It’ll fix itself, it always does.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      He hasn’t created it yet, in fact if he doesn’t he’ll create a paradox! Wait…

      • Maxmice

        Confusing, isn’t it?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Not compared to some of the stuff I put my D&D group through when I was running that alternate universe scenario back in college.

          • Frank

            So you’re the reason they put that “no weird time junk” rule!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Not me, it was another ferret, honestly!

  9. YoyoDude

    I am perfectly okay with double the peanut, destruction of the universe or not :D

    • xhunterko

      Wait a minute! Doc I thought you said….

      • Ryu

        Oh Peanut looked at what you done! I cautioned you about disrupting the continuum for your owen personal benefit! :P

        • GarrisonSkunk

          So now Bino’s turned The Good Ol’ Dogs Club into a gambling empire and is running Babylon Gardens in his image?

  10. LupisLight

    Peanut, you’re smarter than this. He is obviously you come back in time from the future – He remembers this conversation because you are having it right now. He’s not a doppelganger, he’s a Time-clone!

    • Frank

      That’s what he wants him to think!

      • p0lo

        Well he can’t be an evil twin, he doesn’t have a goatee.

  11. SilverZeo

    Peanut must have not read much time travel story books, huh?

  12. Xane

    Can I have the extra Peanut, please? Or better yet, make copies for all of us!

  13. Dexter Dark One

    Please don’t let this end up like Futurama where all time duplicates are DOOMED. Also I think it goes against the lawz of nature for someone ( Peanut ) to be that freaking adorable

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There’s no duplicate if you think four dimensionally.

      • ravor9933

        Reference from back to the future?

        • ravor9933

          Dang It the gravatar thing has been messing up my profile picture

  14. Gabe23

    This is gonna get pretty pretty interesting …

  15. Shane

    Two Peanuts One Universe……
    Oh God Help Us All!
    Things Are Aboot to get Interesting o.o

  16. CrimsonFox

    That’s a thing right? ‘Cause everything else seems to be a thing x3

    Also, yay! Book 3! Must get >:3

  17. GarrisonSkunk

    I think we’re gonna need a blackboard.

  18. Ryu

    And so…the universal doomsday clock is ticking? .__.

  19. GarrisonSkunk

    One way to settle this Peanut….sniff his butt.

    • Erikuto

      I think I’m missing the joke here…..

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Butt smell is like photo ID for the dog set. If Peanut #2 smells like Peanut #1, then he’s not an imposter.

        • Erikuto

          I feel really stupid for realizing that’s why dogs do that…..

  20. RJ

    So… the two peanuts will occupy the same time frame for the next few minutes and very bad things will happen, then peanut #1 will go back in time and it will happen all over again, and then when Peanut #1(2) goes back in time, there will only be one Peanut unless for some odd reason Peanut #1(2) is the one we follow which would cause a diabolical time loop?

    Oh jeez my brain hurts :c

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Unless Tarot is imagining herself as Peanut for some reason.

    • Ryu

      What a mind job! >.<

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No, it’s simple, Peanut #1 goes back to 1943, and meets Robert Heinlein on the deck of a US Navy destroyer, and gives him this idea for a really great time travel story. Then Lazarus Long shows up and sends him back to 2012 where he accidentally knocks himself into the vortex of a cronosynclastic infundibulum and sends himself back to 1943. So he jumps in after himself and ends up going back 30 minutes to try and stop him from being knocked into the vortex, scaring his original, who runs off to find Tarot. So he decides he’s fixed everything, because the original Peanut won’t be in the dealer’s room when he appears now, so he goes back to manning the booth, which is why he’s knocked into the vortex when Lazarus Long shows up with his younger self. The original Peanut, who has now never time traveled at all, finally returns with a very confused Tarot. Lazarus Long gives them the watch from “Somewhere in Time” as a souvenir of the time loop that never actually happened.

      • RJ

        …You scare me :c your D&D group probably went insane :c

      • Frank

        I’d so pay to watch that!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Of course if M Night Shmayalan was doing it, the watch would turn out to be Peanut’s fate.

          • ravor9933

            Like how King’s watch is except that it is part of his soul

    • Wanderer

      You’re overthinking it. Think of it as… let’s see…

      Think of a piece of string. This is Peanut’s timeline. Ordinarily, it just goes straight from point A to point B.

      Now loop the string back on itself. At this point, Peanut has entered a time loop. At one point, you will have two pieces of string (two Peanuts) right next to each other, but they’re still part of the same piece of string (timeline).

      • LoneWolf

        GENIUS! Or just say time is like a big ball of wibbly wobilly, timey-wimey stuff… you cant keep it straight.

  21. zeroslash

    Wow, and I just finished watching Back to the Future II.

    • Shane

      Love That Show. The Western one was just Epic
      The Time train was Just EPIC lol

  22. Zaitsev

    There’s no double Peanut tag? What is this heresy?

    • GarrisonSkunk

      I noticed that too.

    • Rick Griffin

      I tried, but the system doesn’t let you add a tag twice and it wouldn’t feel right if I marked the other Peanut different.

  23. Crystalwind

    So… Either time travel or dopplegangers exist. Either way, our course of action is obvious. Us fans must start trying to convince Rick to make a comic that features a pile of Kings cuddling together, because let’s face it, that would be the cutest thing ever.

  24. Gabe23

    So, right (present) Peanut is gonna argue with left (future) Peanut about how he doesn´t remember him, and he is going to touch or do something that will make him “time travel” and present Peanut will be now future Peanut and he will have this same conversation with now past Peanut, past Peanut will “time travel” and future Peanut will know be present Peanut. And with luck Tarot will not know about this episode

    That is what I think is gonna happen … is it understandable ?

    • Crystalwind

      Are you sure you mean “is gonna happen”? With this new plot twist, we can’t even be sure whether this comic is the present one. Peanut could have already gone off one wacky adventures with his future self, caused a time paradox, or even killed his future self for all we know, and we only think that it hasn’t happened yet because we’re actually the past readers!

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Oh, man, this is heavy. (hey, someone was gonna say it)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        “One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of accidentally becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem involved in becoming your own father or mother that a broad-minded and well-adjusted family can’t cope with…

        “The major problem is quite simply one of grammar, and the main work to consult in this matter is Dr. Dan Streetmentioner’s Time Traveler’s Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations. It will tell you, for instance, how to describe something that was about to happen to you in the past before you avoided it by time-jumping forward two days in order to avoid it. The event will be described differently according to whether you are talking about it from the standpoint of your own natural time, from a time in the further future, or a time in the further past and is further complicated by the possibility of conducting conversations while you are actually traveling from one time to another with the intention of becoming your own mother or father.”

    • RJ

      Very understandable. my brain is melting even more now though :c

  25. Draegwolf

    heh, only thing missing is Baily.

  26. legendario13

    rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
    rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
    rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
    rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
    rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!

    • legendario13


      Thats it!

      The original Peanut is the fake Peanut…

      Or is the degeneration by the Paradox O_O

    • Frank

      Uh… that’s just a tuft of his headfur getting into his eyebrows…

      • legendario13

        Awwww… but i had a theory and everything

  27. gameangel147

    The Peanut has been doubled!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      But has the fun?

  28. bene

    In the tags shouldn’t there b 2 peanuts?

  29. GarrisonSkunk

    Now when the first Psycon arc is eventually reprinted in “Housepets! 4″, will Rick add on a “To Be Continued….” panel to the end of it like they did for the tape of BTTF?

  30. TwiliteHero

    Oh god stable time loops

  31. GarrisonSkunk

    Wonder if Wendsday will bring a third Peanut to the party.

    • Gabe23

      That.Would.Be.Awesome !!!

      • legendario13

        I support the motion!

    • Ryu

      Ponbon comes back and suddenly removes his fursuit head and its Peanut instead? o.o

      • RJ

        he is small enough to pull it off, isn’t he?

      • Gabe23

        Unless future Peanut is insted Armando R. Cruz, the evil Peanut´s twin from a different dimesion that wants the family fortune

      • Crystalwind

        Well, if that were the case, he couldn’t be the adult Peanut, because he’s too small. Still, he could be puppy Peanut from the past, I suppose.

  32. Loner

    hmmm parodox nice

  33. Smallfoot

    Hey, has anybody seen my chicken puppet?

    • i like your hat

      it was over by the edge of the universe go ask the travel service to take you there

      • i like your hat

        or maybe one of the peanuts took it :P

  34. IceKitsune

    Hey, you know what; I remember around Dog Days of Summer saying that some one was going to break Kitsune “No weird time junk” rule. I wonder if this would count as doing that.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That only counts in the game.

      • Crystalwind

        But everyone’s playing the game! Those who aren’t (like Grape) are cheaters who are to be driven up trees! Have you forgotten arc 2?

  35. Elwood Blutarsky

    More action at the Con, this should be fun.

  36. RJ

    Wait, now i understand this.

    Peanut didn’t listen to Tarot. he used the Astral thingy to go back in time, ’cause, as Ponbon knows really well, it can time travel. BRAIN PAIN GOES DOWN THE DRAIN :D

  37. D-Rock

    I kinda admire how Peanut can stay calm in these situations.

  38. Renkun

    2 Peanuts are more as perfect
    1 for Tarot and the other for Grape and everyone is happy^^

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Make another Grape for Max…then everyone’s happy.

      • Crystalwind

        Actually, you know what? Just duplicate everyone and get them in relationships with other people (or their duplicates). Then the entire cast is happy.

        • Renkun

          let me say so….no i think nobody want’s a second bino (except Sasha) or more from the miltons ferrets

  39. Foxtrack

    Other peanut is a spy!

    So it seems there is a bit of a time trip loop slip somewhere and future peanut has appeared at present peanut time in the reality between the realities and time spaces. The fact that they are outside the normal time space continuum would allow such things to happen in this dimension of reality. More interested to see what it is that peanut does to cause this event, most likely has to do with the services he is holding watch over.

    • SecretAgent000

      I would have thought that being IN normal space-time would make this more logical-otherwise there is the implication of absolutely NO continuity at all, even second-by-second, and that gets REALLY confusing really quickly.

  40. Ezhno Pallaton

    Wish they would sell your Comics at book stores Rick, would toltally buy them :P . when I order things online something always goes wrong

  41. GameCobra

    Hmm… we’re back to a Psycon after a small break from Kevin, similar to how the Farm arc was handled… except there’s a possible doppleganger involved.

    coincidence? I think not!

  42. John willow

    Mr T – “Snickers in the third dimension, Get Some Nuts!! UURRNNGGHH!!!”

  43. Tommy

    this can’t be good

  44. GarrisonSkunk

    Maybe Peanut went back in time to stop Grape from snapping Bino’s shock collar control.

  45. Almighty404

    Boy, Peanut sure is looking paradoxal today, even moreso than usual.

  46. Argent Stonecutter

    Rick: when printing time comes, we need a version of this arc that can be cut out and taped into a mobius strip.

  47. Salenstormwing

    The Peanut has been DOUBLED!

  48. Argent Stonecutter

    What really happened is that Tarot dragged him along with her when she went to the end of time to rescue Ponbon, and he overshot on the way back. At least that’s what I remember the last time this strip showed up.

  49. Jackalope121

    should i be this confused?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I don’t know, how confused are you?

      • i like your hat

        you should look up what your confused about on Wikipedia that’s what i did :3

        • Argent Stonecutter

          *quickly stealth-edits Wikipedia to say the exact opposite*

          • GarrisonSkunk

            *reads Wikipedia* “…to get unconfused about time traveling dogs, give all your socks and shineys to the nearest ferret.”

          • Shane

            i will Edit the Wiki Afterwards and Make it Better.

          • Frank

            Or you could time-travel to before he got confused, and edit it then!

  50. DanTwelve3

    This guy, he looks familiar, but I don’t trust him.

  51. Dreziehn

    man people call 2001 a space odessey confusing and then this happens…

  52. Grip Moonwolf

    Mother of God…

  53. *WhiteFang*

    Two peanuts means two times the fun XD

  54. Perfesser_Bear

    Two Of A Kind

    That’s a pair to bear a full house.

    • Perfesser_Bear

      Don’t post that; you already left that comment.

  55. Perfesser_Bear

    I think I would remember if I’d posted that before.

    • Perfesser_Bear

      But remember!

  56. Tommy

    I wonder how this will end XD

    • cheetahwolf

      a peanut army!!

    • Crystalwind

      A Peanut gallery, perhaps?

      • Frank

        Well I’ve seen a Peanut Stand….
        ….and heard a rubber band

  57. Jacob

    Ohmigosh, the King front cover is great :) I need a poster of that!

  58. Maxmice

    “Peanut, you can’t do that! The future will be changed! You’ve created a time paradox!”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      But if I’ve already created the paradox, then if I don’t do it I’ll change the future again and create a new paradox.

    • D-Rock

      Can’t believe I didn’t think of that.

    • LoneWolf

      Time can be rewritten

  59. Solario the Visored

    Oh dear, here it comes. Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey! :/

  60. FerreTrip


  61. Draven

    I hate when my dopplegangers emember things that I don’t. Happens all the time.

  62. Blucan

    I forsee the two Peanuts wanting the present Tarot, and then having the most immature, yet adorable, slap-fight to the death. :3

    • bhPixelFire

      But then they would kill eachother…


  63. Yehoshua

    Is it just me or is one of the Peanuts missing the “bone” in the second panel?

    • i like your hat

      *GASP* HE IS D:

      • i like your hat

        paradox :c

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s behind his hand and/or drink, unless Rick retroactively restores it.

      • Yehoshua

        The problem is that there is too much space between the collar and the hand and/or drink for the bone to simply be hidden entirely from view behind either one.

        • bhPixelFire

          Perhaps Rick… who is human…
          Made a mistake…


  64. Raska

    Peanut’s been told before…/everything/ is a thing.

  65. bhPixelFire


  66. Herobrine

    Why are there two Peanuts?

    • Legendario13

      Thats what we are waiting to see

  67. Z24

    You know what they say… Double the Peanut…

    • Z24

      …Half the sleep time for the cats…

  68. KickahaOta

    All right, Mr. Clever Artist Person, admit it. You’re just doing this so you can reuse the same strip later. CONFESS.

    • Jamie

      I feel that that will happen sometime in the near future.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        I think Rick’s more clever than that…if he does use it again, he’ll redraw it, perhaps from Peanut #1’s POV looking out at Peanut #2 with the con in the background (Like the Ponbon shots) using the same script.

  69. CyberSkull

    We are going to see this comic again later, aren’t we?

  70. falcon01

    They just need to switch sides of the booth and all will be….well, just as wierd, really…

  71. Timmie

    There is no fun until there are more then 10 Peanuts in the same room.

    • Timmie

      I take that back, 100 Milton Ferrets are needed.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Heh…I first read that as 100 Million Ferrets :)

        • Raska

          Oh god….the Ferrets!…they’re _everywhere_!

  72. illeatyourself

    Lol surprised such a conversation has yet to happen anywhere else in fiction! XD

  73. GarrisonSkunk

    “Why is any object we don’t understand always called a ‘thing’?” – Dr Leonard McCoy STTMP

    If they ever Imaginate Star Trek, Peanut should be McCoy.

    • Sniperdeathangel

      Don’t get all falossafee on us it’s just the way people think,that’s my guess

  74. ravor9933

    everyone has been over thinking this strip

    • Legendario13

      Thats good ,isnt ?

      • Sniperdeathangel

        No not rilly because if everyone over thinks this one then we won’t be able to consentrate On the next one

  75. Kit

    Ummmm. didnt i say somthing before about time travel?
    Travel back in time and things get confusing fast.

    • Kit

      well, that and ive been told… EVERYTHING is a thing

  76. GarrisonSkunk

    I’m just glad that the time travel paradox issue was so distracting that no one started to speculate what the little puppy’s rooms were like in the Housepets universe.
