        • Gabe23

          Fourth…ded ?

        • Maxmice

          eitghthed? but seriously, she does look great.

        • Shane


        • Erikuto

          c-c-combo breaker!

          (i had to do it :x )

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Is Dissension on vacation? He usually stop this type of thread by tenthed.

          • Dissension

            I’ve gotta sleep sometime! *giggles*

          • GarrisonSkunk

            **watches comment list go down from 160 to 125 overnight**

            Welcome back, Dissension. We missed you. :)

    • GameCobra

      Fourth. And i think it’s because noone seen her have her tail up that high before. Me thinks she’s curious =P

      • Ryu

        Grape is just full of surprises! :3

      • RootsofOrigin

        Me thinks she’s bored out of her gourd.

        • Legendario13

          She looks like she’s actually enjoying the way Peanut tries to fix the story.
          Thats what i thought

          • Keldor

            Besides, she knows that if she sits in and makes observations, Peanut will usually top himself.

          • Legendario13

            she’s helping him to improve, how cute!
            She knows him so well :D

          • GarrisonSkunk

            “Wow, Mr Peabody! I didn’t know Grape helped Peanut with his comic strip!”
            “Why of course Sherman. After all…who else could serve as his … mews….”

          • Legendario13

            Youre creative today, dont ya’?

    • Salenstormwing

      Whatever number we’re up to-ith. Grape looks awesome like that.

  2. GarrisonSkunk

    Star clone dream babies – they’ll do anything for you!

    • xhunterko

      Well now, I guess we can really call it Ballad of the Space Babies now can we? :)

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Alt text: ‘So why did they make a clone of Stripe too?’ ‘Universal matter vibrations.’ ‘So, just because?’ ‘Yea, pretty much.’

        • ToaSoul

          so that start clone dream Spot would have a not- cat girlfriend.

        • Keldor

          Clearly there’s quantum entanglement going on.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            With a touch of quantum e-stranglement for good measure.

  3. thefirstonethere

    he is going to exhaust all of his options soon. Very sooon. mmmmm. And grape DOES look amazing in the last panel

    • Crash FistFight

      With the way this arc has been going i think he could probably baffle us for quite some time, oh and I second that statement about grape. His work has been getting better and better recently, but then again i always liked the old version of Housepets! from 2008 so i’m easy to please lol

      • Argent Stonecutter

        it’s a new arc monday.

        • GarrisonSkunk

          But it can’t be over! We have to find out why Spot (Superdog)’s nose disappeared after he removed the helmet! Will he ever smell again???

          • Verp

            He will continue to smell like a dog.

  4. Dontlookmenaked

    I love Grape’s tail in the last panel.

  5. xhunterko

    Technically, she does have her own powers so it would still seem logical to clone her too.

  6. Erikuto

    ‘So why did they make a clone of stripe too?’ ‘Universal matter vibrations’ ‘So just because’ Yeah, pretty much.’

    ^ alt text

    I actually dont mind staying up late to do this

    • Erikuto

      And I like how Peanut thought of clones of themselves to save well themselves haha.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Oops, sorry, didn’t notice you did it.

      • Legendario13

        Thanks for the alt text!

  7. IceKitsune

    Ok then that was interesting yet stupid at the same time. Also I agree Grape looks amazing in the last panel.

  8. KnightPuppy

    This is good, and I think that peanut needs to try kissing grape sometime just for fun.

  9. Gabe23

    Well … there wasnt a movie reference in this strip, right ?

    • GarrisonSkunk


      • Legendario13

        Space oddisey?

        • Gabe23

          Ooooouuuuu I see …. yeah … I´ve never seen it … My bad

          • Legendario13

            Why, I get it right?

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Yup, that’s the one with the Star Child at the end.

          • Legendario13

            (I kinda was sure i was sure by reading the other comments but …you know… I wanted to be sure)
            I still kinda remember that movie

        • Crash FistFight

          Does this make the cyborg HAL 9000? From the way this plot is going it’s like any other Stanley Kubrick film lol

          • Keldor

            I’m sorry Spot (superdog) I can’t do that.

          • Crash FistFight

            Spot. This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye. (exits Cyborg)

          • GarrisonSkunk

            “Daaaaaaisy….Daaaaaaaisy…My naaaaame isssssss Daaaaaaaaisy too…………”

  10. Legendario13

    well, THOSE are quite some tags….

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Rick forgot ‘Innocent Bystanding Neighbor Stars’ ;)

      • ToaSoul

        what about ‘giant green dinosaur’

        • Perfesser_Bear

          Well, better a giant green dinosaur than a stoopid purple one

          ♫♪I hate you,
          You hate me…

          • Legendario13

            But i used to like Barney :(

            …I think >_>

          • Ryu

            Can’t believe that show is still around! >.>

          • Legendario13



  11. GarrisonSkunk

    Spots and Stripes Forever!

  12. GarrisonSkunk

    So I’m guessing Grape is leaning on her knees on a bar chair under the table?

    • Frank

      Say it with me: She is a cat!

      • Legendario13

        I feel like im missing alot about that last panel, i just dont get what is it.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        I know she’s a cat, but she’s a cat designed like a human and It just looks odd comparing the hight of her standing up to that table at lower than her waist in the first panel to her position in the last panel being able to lean that much foward that it looks to me like her legs would have to be floating in the air (or as I suggested she’s leaning on a chair without a back that we don’t see.)

        Don’t get me wrong….its a great picture. (Otherwise I wouldn’t have grabbed it for my forum avatar :) ) She just looks slightly off model, probably just the artist/designer in me.

        • Legendario13

          Oh, I see.
          Well that sounds plausible.
          Maybe she’s on the stool Peanut was using to draw.

  13. Xane

    If he doesn’t watch it she’s gonna shred all of it! And maybe him too!

  14. GarrisonSkunk

    Gritty reboots are a thing, aren’t they?

    • Ryu

      Hollywood has been into that lately!

  15. ToaSoul

    is there such a thing as “FURIOUS JUSTICE!”

  16. PeanutFan1997

    Haha Peanut took that in a whole new direction. Well now we know that Spot and Stripe might have kids. Awkward. But funny with what Grape did.

  17. Xane

    Still doesn’t work because Star Clone Dream Spot (Superdog) would have punched The Cyborg during the fat kids arc and the Cyborg would know he existed!!

    Also what is that slightly reddish smear above Grape in panel 1 (and the last panel of Wednesday’s strip)? Is that supposed to be waves of anger/disgust or is it just where they messed up the paint when they threw water at the fan?

    • Crash FistFight

      Don’t see it in panel one, but i do see a smiley face sorta in the last panels of today’s and Wednesday’s strip.

    • Keldor

      No, you see, Star Clone Dream Spot (superdog) actually punched Star Clone Dream Cyborg. And that’s Star Clone Dream Green Dinosaur in the fifth panel.

    • Keldor

      Also, that’s totally where they threw water at the fan. XD

  18. *WhiteFang*

    I like how grape looks in the last panel

    • Sniperdeathangel


      • Dead Men Walk

        it’s not a pose that Rick usually uses in his housepets! comics.

  19. FerreTrip

    Okay, it might be because I just woke up, but I’m kinda confused.

  20. D-Rock

    Okay, this was interesting.

  21. Argent Stonecutter

    I got nothing.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Garrison gives the ferret a bagel and five socks.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I got socks!

        • Sniperdeathangel

          Save some for me

        • Perrin

          *reveals the hidden Nutella*

          I BROUGHT NUTELLA!!!
          let’s put it on the bagel. ^3^

  22. Tom Flapwell

    “Unbeknowest,” not “unbeknownst”? Peanut may be well read, but he gets sloppy at times. And does that say “Super Ur Helm”?

    • Tom Flapwell

      Wait, it must be VR, not Ur.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        When I first saw the Wendsday comic, my first impression was that it stood for Helium and that the figures were supposed to be inflatable figures of Spot and Stripe :)

  23. voiceless

    ._. and 5 hours later im done with this series entirely until new stuff comes out

    • Keldor

      So… until Monday then.

    • Crash FistFight

      I hated when that happened to me. Read it straight for hours when i first found the comic, then it ended and i relized that this is not made fast enough for me lol

      • Perrin

        yeah, i finish these things too quickly… if the comic’s finished, i feel depressed because now it’s gone.
        while if it’s still going, i feel depressed because i’m always waiting…

        either way i end up depressed.

        • bhPixelFire

          It’s not over yet!

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Not till the fat lady sings!

          • bhPixelFire

            Or that fat guy that sounds like a fat lady…

          • Perrin

            how about when the fat kid cries?
            apparently crying helps them lose weight. XD

          • ToaSoul

            why must you keep referencing the other cyborg comic!

    • Keldor

      There’s a simple solution, of course. Just get into a spaceship and fly around at near the speed of light for a while. Then the laws of Relativity dictate that less time will pass in your reference frame than for the rest of us on Earth, so that three times a week for us will be more like three times an hour in your time frame (depending on exactly how fast you go).

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Or go to Psycon and find the Swami-hat guys. Tell ‘em Peanut sent you.

      • Crash FistFight

        Hmm simple and effective yet not in my budget…I’m just gonna re-read the first comics that are all in black and white like i always do XD

        • GarrisonSkunk

          Did you read all the comments that went with all the comics? Sometimes there are interesting bits there that you might gloss over when just going through the arcs themselves.

          • Crash FistFight

            Ya i read it all XD

  24. Keldor

    I love how Peanut takes a minor plot hole and turns it into an interstellar disaster.

    • Crash FistFight

      But he already used the history-erasing plot! Go big or go home XD

  25. Argent Stonecutter

    Has he done the alternate reality evil spot yet?

    • Keldor

      You mean (godrepus) Tops?

      We all know that evil twins spell their names in reverse order.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Evil Kirk and Evil Spock didn’t!

        • Keldor

          But we don’t know that! Did they ever actually introduce themselves, or perhaps use each others’ names while conversing? Otherwise, “evil Spock” and “evil Kirk” are just the names given by the crew, or perhaps the audience, who can only guess.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            There have been a number of episodes set in the evil trek universe, and none of the denizens thereof spell their names backwards.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Except Evil Bob down in enginnering. But he just did it to tick off Evil Scotty.

      • Argent Stonecutter
  26. Keldor

    Perhaps in the next issue, Spot (superdog) will be forced to don the super VR helmet again, for only by working together with Star Clone Dream Spot (superdog) in an Inceptionesque sequence (only more confusedly) will he be able to defeat the Orphanimous Laser Defense System Mark One Beta Ignition Lattice Experiment (OLDSMOBILE for short).

  27. illeatyourself

    Lol this is kinda creative but is also kinda childish in the terms they use. Despite this, Peanut got really creative/scientific with the whole Primordial Electric-Gamma Radiation thing! XD

  28. Keldor

    But Grape, classic philosophy states that you cannot truely ever know if what you experience is truely real or not, so what grounds do you have to say that the VR reality happened in any less of a “true” state than the accepted reality? Maybe the VR was the “real” universe, but waking up is the illusion? What if Star Clone Dream Spot (superdog) is the real Spot (superdog) while Spot (superdog) is just a clone created by Cyborg to take over the world?

    • Keldor

      Perhaps both universes existed in a state of quantum superposition up until Spot woke up, thereby observing the system and causing it to collapse into a definite state? Would this then make Stripe Schrodinger’s pet that despite all appearences is not a cat?

      • Dead Men Walk

        Don’t involve physics in our comics…
        but that is possible.

        • Keldor

          But superhero comics have a long history of involving the more esoteric laws of physics, usually very much incorrectly! I’m merely upholding the precident!

          …ok, I admit it, I only did it so I could make the Schrodinger’s not-a-cat crack…

  29. Keldor


    What do you suppose “Processing wastes blooksuckers” are?

    • GarrisonSkunk

      A possible new invading force of villians for Spot (Superdog) to punch in a future action packed issue.

  30. foreverknight13

    Oh wow, tis is totally poking fun at the recent announcement by DC Comics to reboot their entire franchise by giving everyone an entirely new backstory and erasing any trace of the original.

  31. bhPixelFire


    • GarrisonSkunk

      Seconde—um….no…. better not start that again.

      • bhPixelFire

        I seen that.

  32. bhPixelFire


    • GarrisonSkunk

      That sounds like a limited time offer action figure for some reason…..

      Buy any 10 Housepets!(TM) Action Figures and get Creepy Grin (TM) Peanut (TM) free with proof of purchase!

  33. Zaitsev

    GW2 is eating up too much of my time…

    • Zaitsev

      Woops, I have absolutely how this ended up on Housepets and not it’s intended comment…

  34. Z24

    Still a better storyline than Twilight

    • Legendario13

      By far!

      • Ryu

  36. Gabe23

    SPOILER: Tomorrow is going to start a new arc, it will be a “big” one and if im correct, it will be called “Temple Crashers”

    • Dissension

      Is it technically a spoiler if the artist publicly announces it via Twitter?
