  1. Ryu

    Yay, a new arc begins! ^.^

  2. Xane

    Bat-Bat the Vampire!

  3. Lilaeris

    Grape is a princess already, though.

    • Xane

      A periwinkle princess, even!

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Alt Text: For girls replace all superheroes with princesses.

        • Stainless Steel Fox

          Huh, Bat-Princess? Spider-princess (that would probably be a drow)? Thurid (Thor’s daughter) is about as bad-ass a princess as it’s possible to be.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Scandinavian fairy tales are full of seriously hard princesses who are prepared to hang their lover’s flayed skin over the hearth to serve as an oracle if that’s what they need to do to avenge his death sort of thing…

          • Aldanger

            …Scandinavian fairy tales are scary. o.O

  4. bene

    Sad but true

    • GreighVonGottreich

      Pretty much :/

  5. Gabe23

    Ok … just for the record Grape, The Avengers is a very cool and good movie, The Dark Knight Rises is THE MOVIE.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      They might be a bit young for DKR.

      • Mrbrawl

        I would come up eith a Bane “my permission” joke but i cant think of one.

        • Silly Zealot

          I was gonna make a spider-man joke, but it got lost on the net.

  6. xhunterko

    What should I be?
    (cookies if you continue the song)

    • Spork Master


      Or a closet sock monster!
      (I doubt that I get a cookie for that.)

      • xhunterko

        Here’s a second part to it: There’s so many sides to me!
        Anybody else wanna give it a shot?

        • ArcaneWZRD

          Third part: I could be handsome and brave, a king or a slave

          (probably not exact cause it’s been awhile since I last heard it)

          • Silly Zealot

            If I could be a superhero, I would awesome man… (continue the song, please)

          • xhunterko

            ArcaneWZRD gets 2 cookies! Don’t know about Silly Zealot’s song though. Mine is from Garfield’s Halloween. Thought the reference’d be perfect for this.

          • Silly Zealot

            Mine was “Superheroes” by Stephen Lynch, look it up. Some adult subjects inside but no cussing and lots of hilarity.

  7. SeekingSolitude42

    Do grape and peanut look smaller?

  8. IceKitsune

    For some reason Peanut as a Vampire is funny to me. Might be because hes so happy go lucky and stuff. You know since everything is a thing in the Housepets universe I kind of wonder how Vampires and Werewolves operate here. I’m guessing classic Bram Stoker style for Vamps? Werewolves would be interesting as actual Wolves can talk and stuff here.

    • Frank
      • GarrisonSkunk

        Ah…..there wolf.

      • IceKitsune

        Ah yes right after I posted that I just kept thinking that this was Answered some where I had just forgotten. Though again that strip could just refer to how Humans think that Werewolves are and not how the actual supernatural werewolves work.

        • Xane

          Well the original mythology of the werewolf was turning into a four-legged wolf, not an anthropomorphic wolf. So changing into a two-legged wolf would still be werewolfism in Housepets. Grape mentioned a wolf cutting his tail off to play a werewolf in a movie, so maybe part of the myth here is that werewolves don’t have tails.

  9. GarrisonSkunk

    Is that Tiger’s table?

  10. SilverZeo

    Grape, it’s election year too you know….

    • Argent Stonecutter

      “I’m dressing up as a Republican”?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I was sure there was a Bloom County strip involving the characters dressing up as political candidates for Halloween, but I have been unable to find it.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Housepets smartly avoids politics.

  11. Spork Master

    Some boys are dressing up non-superhero!
    For example, I know someone who’s going as the scariest thing I can think of:
    Himself in his own design of face-paint, coupled with black clothing and whatever else he can find to make him look scarier.

    But I agree with Grape- vampire costumes have been overused for years now, and ever since Twilight came out, the number of people in my neighborhood dressing in bad vampire costumes has swollen steadily. o_o It needs to end.

    • Nohbody

      He did say the traditional kind of vampire, which I’ve not seen all that much of in the last few years.

      Twilight has, though, tempted me into making up a joke organization called “Vampire Lords Against Dang Sparklies” (or a stronger “D” word, depending on the discussion venue), who obviously aren’t keen on the sparkly vamp stuff (as I’m not, for the record).

    • bug

      Spork Master since I know exactly who you are talking about, I suggest to get a picture of him in his costume & post it because that guy is EXTREMLY scarry!
      He knows how to do holloween perfectly!

      Lastly I agree that people need to not dress up as vampires or at least not as mutch, All things get old after a while no mater how good or bad it is.

  12. Marco

    I would like to see Peanut as the Hulk, he can just dye his fur Green! =P Grape would approve! ; )

    • ToaSoul

      the Hulk wouldn’t because of one thing….. THE PANTS!!!!!!!!!

      • xhunterko

        DIe the legs blue silly!

      • xhunterko

        Actually, it’s dye. And the leg’s would have to be half blue and half green. See? Easy!

  13. D-Rock

    HA! Also, never heard of Bela Lugosi.

    Embarrased to admit this, but I’ve been wanting to go as the red Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger for a really long time. Outgrown Halloween, unfortunately.

    • Nohbody

      He was pretty much the maker of the visual style of “classic” vampires, and one of the masters of early horror movies. Check IMDb for his films if you want more details (and material for lists of stuff you should watch :) ).

      • D-Rock

        Thanks for the tip.

    • Frank

      but that will trigger the debate about which series is the series. A debate that gets pretty complicated if Skulk and Bulk are brought in

      • D-Rock

        Good point, Youtube is enough of a flamewar.

        To anyone reading this, just go with whichever team you like, and let everyone else do the same.

  14. Zaitsev

    Wonder if Miles would be offended if someone showed up as a werewolf or more disappointed in the lack of originality.

  15. Frank

    Hey, Peanut! Go as Spot (Superdog)!

    • Marco

      Now if Peanut heads to the gym and dyes his fur white! Yeah that works! XD

      • ToaSoul


        • Xane

          And the foam muscle suit. And stilts.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      “Hey, Tarot, how far can you project those illusions?”

  16. LoneHowler

    Why not a vampire Batman?

    • xhunterko

      Sure I’ll protect the city….in exchange for your…

      • Silly Zealot

        beef steak, what Batman was trying to say is that he wants your beef steaks!

  17. Mrbrawl

    Lucky for me i dont trick or treat anymore, so this year im scaring kids in my slenderman costume

    • xhunterko

      You sir get a cookie.

    • Arjay

      that was exactly what i wanted to do XD

  18. AlexBC

    I had a LOT of cross dressers at Halloween at my high school when I was younger

    • ToaSoul

      same with my grade school and they weren’t the everyday clowns they were the really scary ones and now i have a fear of clowns….

  19. Elwood Blutarsky

    This could be fun. What will Peanut go as? As others before me suggested I’d bank on a cat just for irony and that he’s been implied to be getting into feline interests as part of his crush on Grape. I could also him going as Spot though, superheroes are in this year.

  20. Erikuto

    Rick should have someone wearing a huge box with a cereal brand on it (doesnt matter what kind) and have a knife in it and say “killed by a serial killer”

    lol get it? :3

  21. GameCobra

    From generic vampires and werewolves to slasher villains like Jason and Freddy, those were the traditional get-ups in those days of halloween when we were kids =3

  22. Krillos

    Bah! Grape has no Halloween-spirit if she disses the vampires! But kudos to Peanut to keep the traditional vampires alive!

  23. tymime

    Emphasizing and imitating the handcrafted Victorian style of dress seems to be the best and most tasteful way to go nowadays.
    So long as you’re pale, have fangs, and dress elegantly, though, you’re a vampire.

  24. ToaSoul

    My little sister told me that she wanted to go as Grape for Halloween and she wants me to go as Peanut….. the only problem is making the costumes…..

  25. S.Jindivic

    Spot the Superdog will be very unique.

    • Z24

      But try to avoid Spot the Superdog just in case.

      • Frank

        Aw, come on! Nobody knows he’s real!

        • Ryu

          He’s really real! You just have to believe in him! ;)

          • Z24

            The thing is that, if he’s real, he won’t like you to see him copying him.

  26. Perfesser_Bear

    Okay, now I know what it looks like when a purple cat goes, “PFFSH.”

  27. thefirstonethere

    Is that, like some sort of toilet paper in his hands or something?

    • bug

      I belive that is the comic he just made.

      • Silly Zealot

        yup, it is.

        • GarrisonSkunk

          I think its just a magazine he’s reading. I don’t think he’d scrunch up the page like that on his comic. (At least I hope he wouldn’t).

  28. Argent Stonecutter

    So, Peanut isn’t doing Halloween with Tarot again?

    Oooh, Pridelands costumes have to still be “in”.

    • Frank

      But of course, would that really stop Grape from missing a perfectly good chance of criticising society?

  29. humanplague

    I’m going as Santa Claus.

  30. Silly Zealot

    Just so you know, Spider-man WAS an Avenger for a time.

  31. ITR

    No mention of slenderman? :-(

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      My fraternity friend has a Slenderman costume. xD

    • Slenderman

      Silly, one does not simply imitate me.

    • xhunterko

      Look up a few comments.

  32. MrMutt

    heh… my neices always are princesses for Halloween. But I think I might have made progress with them. I’m making a chinese dragon for them. Now we just need to see Princess Periwinkle dressed as a princess. heehee.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Wearing periwinkle? Be funny but she’d never do it, she doesn’t like that former part of her life.

  33. Smokofenek

    Bu batman is not from Avengers xD He’s not from Marvel, he’s from DC

    • illeatyourself

      We all know that. He said half dress as Batman and the other half dress as Spider-Man. Well, Grape is saying that now it’s more like a third as Batman and a third as Spider-Man, because the last third dress as the Avengers.

      • Smokofenek

        Ah, ok. I understood it wrong ;)

  34. WingedwolfGirl

    Reminds me of how last year, I figured I’d just be a werewolf each year.
    First a regular-werewolf,
    then a princess-werewolf,
    then a vampire-werewolf,
    then a pirate-werewolf,

  35. illeatyourself

    Nowadays, for girls, replace all princesses with witches, one of the Twilight vampires, and super heroes. XD

  36. Ozimul

    They should go as politicians.
    Those are scary.

  37. FerreTrip

    So, is the new style being implemented in this arc, Rick?

  38. AleColin

    I hope they dress up as Marvell Avengers way more better the Vampire.

  39. The Game

    Grape just mentioned the Avengers

    my life is now complete

  40. Cheetah Kid

    OMG! I just had the best halloween idea ever! Dress up as No-Face from Spirited Away, and when kids come to your door, say “eh……” and slowly walk twards them. IT’S GENIUS!!! MUHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

  41. LoneWolf

    Randomly: The “men and animals being equal” thing in the recap sounds kinda like this show called Sands of Destruction.

    On the comic: Awesome as usual

  42. gamer35

    where i live every is dressing a slenderman.

  43. impmon12


  44. Cheetah Kid

    I wish I could, but I have an afro. The best I did for halloween was sora (but HECK it took alot of hair gell!) I even made kingdom key!

  45. Alex

    A Mortal Kombat! Character like Raiden, sub zero or scorpion!

  46. Draven

    Everybody wants to be the hero, but we need villains to even things out.

  47. amarok21

    Peanut should use jack skellington costume. He would look awesome in that

  48. GarrisonSkunk

    With the Housepets Hands/paws to upperarm size ratios, Peanut could go as Wreck It Ralph.

    • bhPixelFire

      I REALLY want to se that!

  49. Treadwater

    Last year, I wasn’t trying to be a twilight vampire, but I accidentally sparkled because my stepmom hit me with glitter hairspray.

  50. bhPixelFire

    I would so tatally go as Van Helsing!

  51. Shane

    This makes me think, sence its Halloween Dragon and Pete could appear as themselves ans practicly blend in.

  52. Alechsa

    Unfortunate but true. And sad. A kid at the store today had a medical eyepatch on, when asked if he was gonna be a pirate for Halloween, he grinned and said no, he’ll be Captain America. Because, you know. Movie. It’s never about creativity anymore, it’s about what played in the theater that summer.

    • Cheetah Kid

      well said sir… (tear in eye) well said…

    • bug

      OH MYGOD … it’s so beutiful… nothing can be said further about that reality.
      :( :(
