  1. Dissension

    *giggles* Maxwell and Bino are such brothers. = P

    I love that Bino is the first person Max considers.

    • Xane

      I also thought it was nice that Peanut was the second one.

      • Valerio

        this! And LO! he’s been out-witted!

    • GameCobra

      Same here. We finally get to see some family love from Maxwell and Bino for a change. Brotherly love =3

      • Valerio

        at its finest :lol:

        • LeaahWulf

          Im not sure if its particular to brothers

    • littlebigme

      It seems like grape was kinda hiding something

  2. Zaitsev

    Anybody would get jealous about mega-anything.

    • Senorpie7

      I disagree, mega potassium sounds a little deadly.
      Yes that was randomly picked in my head.
      Borat comes to mind now…. haha :b

    • Duck'n

      Yeah like Mega-man, Mega yachts or Mega millions lottery jackpot.

          • Silly Zealot

            Ugh, I’m gonna call the Megazord to make it end all this.
            Wait a minute….

          • aicivilwar

            Maybe a Mega-Mecha-Movie-Marathon starring Mega Mom? Or is that SuperMom?

        • legendario13

          Megatron >:3

          • bug

            Doesn’t everyone want to see him just one last time in a transformer movie or has those movies got’n old yet??

          • legendario13

            They’ll never get old… in my heart :’D

        • Adryan

          That moment when you make a mega-joke to someone and they don’t know the reference…

    • Secret

      Really? I wouldn’t get jealous if someone got a MEGA-vaccine shot.

      • Expletive Deleted

        Yes you would because than they would be immune to MEGA-viruses

        • Aldanger

          Or they’d get mega-sick from the mega0vaccine shot and mega-die. :I

    • Argent Stonecutter


      • LeaahWulf


    • Frank

      Mega-traffic jam!

      • Silly Zealot

        Put order with your megaphone.

    • Zaitsev

      I stand by what I said.

  3. B.Squirrel

    Well, well, well. It looks like Bino sure enjoys his “generic rubber orb of jealousy.”

    • Gabe23

      Well … it´s not a generic rubber orb, its a MEGA- Generic Rubber Orb of Jealousy

      • B.Squirrel

        If it really WAS a Mega Generic Rubber Orb of Jealousy, He would have complete control of the entire pet population of Babylon Gardens, regardless of species.

        • Silly Zealot

          No, no, those are the pieces of Eden.

          • aicivilwar

            I thought it was the seven pieces of eight?

  4. IceKitsune

    Interesting Peanut is allergic to seafood. Bino and Max play off each other really well.

    • Valerio

      that’s absurd! How can a patented cat-lover be allergic to seafood?! Bah, humbug!

      • Secret

        Well maybe he’s only allergic to craw fish, not sea food intirely.

        • thebrokeartist

          Yeah I agree.

        • aicivilwar

          Kosher diet maybe? Kosher food doesn’t allow spineless creatures.

          Allergy all in his mind, maybe? I know (some) dogs can’t eat chocolate, but I’ve never heard of one being allergic to shellfish. (Not saying it’s not possible; only that I haven’t heard of it.)

          • CWFang

            allergic to shell fish is common in mix breeds, but generally they can eat fish

  5. Marco

    Grape just looks on and smirks ^^

    • Valerio

      oh, Maxie, the humiliation! :(

      • LeaahWulf

        That face is priceless.
        Awesome drawing, Rick!

    • Raska

      Grape’s expression in that panel /is/ pretty cool

    • CWFang

      is it just me or does grape look adorable in the second panel? she is so cute

  6. *wolfiejaypaw*

    Thus why dog are superior xD

    • CHAOKOCartoons

      *RECORD SCRATCH!*… what did you say… =_=

      • Secret

        I forsee a terrible arguement that will last for hours and hours on in this very reply.

        • Dissension

          Your clairvoyance fails you today – I assure everyone there will be no arguments. :3

          • Valerio

            thus spoke spoilerustra

          • bug

            AW! I thought things would get real for a moment, you know, like a battle between Max & Bino in which Bino epicly fails and then Max apologizes for hurting him so badly.

            I’m just saying we have-not had a real fight seen … …
            EXCEPT in the “show business” arc.

          • Frank

            I think we’ve had quite a few “no joke today, just violence” -type strips

        • Secret

          I forsee another thing, my confidence in physic abilities shrinking away.

          • Duck'n

            If you can help me find my remote, I think your psychic abilities will Improve or at least be profitable $$$

  7. Wild/Wisp

    Mega-Rubber-Mouse? That sounds cool. i can see cats bounceing it all over the place.

    • Specious

      It sounds more like a superhero mouse that would end up bouncing *the cats* around, to be honest.

      • thebrokeartist

        NO WAIT! A superVILLAIN mouse that WILL end up bounching the cats.

        • aicivilwar

          Or bouncing around Spot?
          *little dog, little dog*
          Sorry, HISHE reference…

          • Secret

            which HISHE episode is that?

  8. Marco

    Mega Rubber Mouse hm, Max you need to write down some notes! :P

    • Valerio

      no, he needs MEGA-YARN!

      • LeaahWulf

        Maybe Mega-Fish!

    • Duck'n

      I think he’d drop everything and go nuts if his dad Jeff pointed a laser at the wall! I don’t think i’ve ever been around a cat who doesn’t go crazy chasing a little dot on the wall. ah thats what I entertainment, humble, simple entertainment.

      • Duck'n

        derp oops I left out the word “call”…sorry!

      • Marco

        It would be hilarious to see his dad or Bino pointing a laser at the wall with Max present his playful instincts kicking in. That would be hilarious and cute to watch! ^^

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I don’t think Rick has introduced laser toys to HP! yet.

          • LeaahWulf

            Peanut should get that for Grape. She’ll say she doesn’t react and then he’ll turn it on and point it on accident and Grape will go nuts for it.

          • aicivilwar

            Or all three of them see the red/green dot and all start going after it. (Housepets! meets Puss In Boots?)

          • Silly Zealot

            Mega-laser!!! Destroy your enemies, entretain your pets!

          • Frank

            Don’t you mean “destroy your pets, entertain your enemies”?

  9. *wolfiejaypaw*

    *dogs (typing too fast again) *palm face*

    • LeaahWulf

      You don’t need to correct yourself. We know, I’ve made many comments that have misspellings.

  10. Kohaku Nightfang

    Grape looks so self-satisfied lol. I’m glad Max likes Peanut enough to think of inviting him :D

    • thebrokeartist

      Well of course he would cause Peanuts done so much for him. And they do have their theater play hours right. Right?

      • LeaahWulf

        I had fun reading “Guys and Dolls” myself.

  11. Duck'n

    Dogs – If you can be happy with having simple things you’ll never have a dull moment in your life!

    • B.Squirrel

      My dog loves anything we don’t giver her. Like new extension cords that have only been in use for 20 minutes.
      I kid you not, she chewed out a 4 foot long length of that cable and somehow managed not to electrocute herself.

      • Duck'n

        She must have a high pain tolerance, and steel jaws. Are you sure she’s not a hyena?

        • Nohbody

          The chewing through thing isn’t that odd for a regular pet-type dog, most extension cords for general household use aren’t really all that well protected. It’s the electrocution bit (or lack thereof, in this case) that makes it unusual.

          • Duck'n

            I’ve have always had the little yappy kinds of dogs, so I seldom ever see anything get chewed up.

          • LeaahWulf

            I have a Basset hound that is too lazy to chew stuff like that up.

  12. Duck'n

    Here’s a thought, why don’t they just invite Tiger over? Their problems would be solved! Unless Tiger doesn’t like/eat crawfish.

    • Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

      1) he’d eat ALL the crawfish and they wouldn’t get any

      2) What is that, some kind of crack about how he must like fish because he’s a cat?


      • B.Squirrel

        Yes. He would LITTERally POUNCE on the opportunity to NIP Duck’n. He wouldn’t even MEOW what hit him! I’m sure his ME– *get’s mauled*

    • Kitch

      He’d re-break Bino’s muzzle

      • LeaahWulf

        Why not Marvin, or the Bigglesworths? Maybe Fiddler and Keys, or Jinx and Jasper?

        • aicivilwar


      • team fabulous

        Like a kit-kat bar

  13. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Maybe Grape has the Mega-rubber-mouse. xD

    • Dissension

      Unlikely, given that, per Bino, “there’s no such thing.”

      • CHAOKOCartoons

        Mabey she’s keeping it a secret from the world ;P

        • Tarka TGO

          Or from Peanut.

    • aicivilwar

      That would explain the “like a boss” expression in the last panel.
      Grape: If only they knew…

  14. D-Rock

    Just like a lot of us, Grape enjoys watching (sort of) siblings argue. Also pretty funny how the Bigglesworths aren’t sure who’s birthday to celebrate.

    • ToaSoul

      the Bigglesworths need to just celebrate all their birthdays at the same time and there wouldn’t be any more confusion…. about the birthday thing telling them apart yeah not thought of anything for that

    • Frank

      Oh, was that it? I thought it was a crack at they’re being several “Heathcliff’s”s, none of which actually belong to anyone named Heathcliff!

      • Frank

        “There”! “THERE”! Not “they’re”!

        When will I learn not to write comments while starving?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Crivins, that’s a bad thing for rats and mice, with their fast metabolism.

        • D-Rock

          Don’t worry, happens to the best of us.

          • Silly Zealot

            And to the wost of us, too! I mean, “worst”.

  15. wolf long fellow

    lol bino being Bino oy vay

  16. leaffly

    I am really not liking Bino these days…

    • Duck'n

      C’mon Bino and Max are basically family this kind of bickering happens in their household DAILY. And besides you can’t stay mad at Bino with that maulde up face of his!

    • Gabe23

      I dont know why, but in my case is the opposite, Im liking him more these days

    • Marco

      That punch in da FACE really did something good for Bino! I like him still lol!

    • GameCobra

      I’m enjoying seeing the bickering between the two. hope to see some more =3

      • Valerio

        It is the most normal and adorable thing I’ve seen between the two

        • Silly Zealot

          Whenever a bipedal cat and a bipedal dog bickering over chew toys is normal.

  17. Xane

    Of course not, a Megaball couldn’t possibly measure up to the Ultra mouse!!!

  18. xhunterko

    There’s always kickstarter Max.

    • Silly Zealot

      Donate a trillion pounds and get your own signed (by Max or role-playing Joey) mega-rubber-mouse!

  19. Valerio

    Alt Text: “Do not taunt MEGA-ball”

  20. Tech

    my cats just as happy with simple plastic bag or wacky fun bouncy ball

  21. Gabe23

    Who need stuff when you have the MEGA-BALL !?!?!

    • Silly Zealot

      I thought mega-balls entered the category of “stuff”, unlike the Weighted Companion Cube, which is so uique it’s name’s pronounciation must include a robotic styled voice!

  22. GeckoZY

    It seems that they’ll really end up with alot of crawfish o_O

    • Marco

      Sixty pounds sounds a lot! Enough to draw unwanted attention ;)

    • Duck'n

      I wonder how they got SO MUCH Crawfish!? 60lbs is kind of overkill wouldn’t you think?

      • Tarka TGO

        Depends on the size of the crawfish. What’s an average one weigh?

        (Insert LMGTFY Link here)

        4.3 ounces… And that’s a non-cooked, I think. So… 240 crawfish.
        That’s a lot. Yea, that’s massive overkill.

        • Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

          Even if it was one mutant 60lb crawfish, it’d still be a lot.

          …And probably unsafe to eat.

        • GeckoZY

          I bet that they will never eat crawfish ever again…

          …or for a year at least.

  23. randomguy45

    Peanut allergic…I’m sure there is some rather hilarious story behind that statement.

    • Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

      Every time he goes to the vet:

      Nurse: So I see you have a peanut allergy?”

      Peanut: *table flip*

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Peanut is a good boy at the vet and always gets a lollipop.

        • Silly Zealot

          To which dogs works as poison, I think.

  24. zeroslash

    Heh, I love Grape’s smug face.

  25. Vuk91

    The good old Bino X3 immature as always.

  26. darkgloomie

    Careful there, Max. Bino’s got a megaball.

    Pray he doesn’t fancy himself a Pokemon Trainer

  27. Tarka TGO

    The Megaball from Glover was very fun to go around bouncing with. None shall taunt the Megaball! X3

  28. GameCobra

    Mega Ball for Raccoon security. When in doubt: Mega Ball.

  29. Khazix

    You do not mock the Mega-Ball. That’s not what you do with the Mega-Ball.

    • team fabulous

      Unless your name is Megaman, then you can taunt it all you like.

  30. Kitch

    Sounds like Sasha hasn’t been around much.

  31. Argent Stonecutter

    So they’ll have to invite the woodland critters after all.

    • ToaSoul

      yeah then no more having to steal it for them selves

    • Valerio

      they’ll show at the door wearing top hat and tuxedo.
      And big grins!

  32. GameCobra

    Bino may have Mega-Ball, but Maxwell has Mega-Grape! :D

  33. Peanut

    Looks like someone’s jealous!

    • Hotep the psychic

      he jealous all right

  34. Valerio

    love like background lights follow Bino

  35. thebrokeartist

    HEY HEY HEY Y’ALL!! I know yesterday I said that the guessing game was over but then I read this strip and decided that the game shall go on. At the moment the grand prise is 12 peanuts, 9 grapes, 6 tarot cards, 2 black kings, 2 white kings, 1 stuffed fox doll, 1 toy truck, 40 quatloos, 1 win, 5 couching tigers, 1 peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich, 1 cartain of Maxwell coffee with some grapes, 10 zorro-trucks, 1 care-package smoke grenade, an arm and a leg, 1 husky sized jacket, 12 bananas, 1 dollar, 12 oranges and 1 euro. So everyone who has already playd can play again and everyone who haven’t made any bets yet can now bet for the outcome of the raccoons heist. So try to guess, make a bet or 2 and have fun some everyone the game is still on.

    • thebrokeartist

      Ah come on guys I’m getting lonely here. Don’t any of you want a chance to win the grand prise. All you have to do is guess how the raccoons heist will end and if you get it right, the winner will be pronounced on the day when the outcome comes. Sigh guess I’ll have to raise my bet with a mega-ball just make things interesting.

      • Silly Zealot

        I bet 1 delicious milk carton that this storyline shall reach a resolution!

        • thebrokeartist

          Wohoo finaly someone still wants to play. Just for that I’ll throw in a box of cookies.

    • thebrokeartist

      Guess I’ll just end the game here cause nobodys interested, but remember the winner shall be mentioned when the coons heist end.

    • CWFang

      i’ll bet 1 grape filled peanutbutter donoughnut that grape will smack the coons in the face with a broom

  36. Frank

    “My yarny can kick your bally’s–” wait, are we allowed to reference PG-13 webcomics?

  37. Vinta

    Bailey needs to beat him up again.

    • Vinta

      And never stop.

      • thebrokeartist

        Sorry pal but even if Bailey did that, that wouldn’t change Binos attitude nor kill him for that matter.

  38. T-Squared

    Please do not taunt Megaball. :P

    • Silly Zealot

      But I’m the tank! How are we gonna win this raid if I don’t taunt the final boss?

  39. Xane

    Do not taunt Mega Fun Ball.

  40. Alun Rundle

    They think they’re serious and Grape knows they’re not. I like the switch from the norm.

  41. coyoteBR

    Well, happy birthday Mr. Bigglesworth. Or maybe Mr. Bigglesworth. Or Mr. Bigglesworth. Or Mr. Bigglesworth. Or…

  42. Argent Stonecutter

    King is probably one of the few dogs to know how to eat lobster. Hint hint.

    • Z24

      But wasn’t his human family/life pretty poor?
      He may know it theoretically, but may also give him a hard time.

      • thebrokeartist

        Yeah when he was a HUMAN ADULT! When he was a kid it was propably a different story like we all know. But I mean the time before those horrible events.

  43. Z24

    Well, 60 pounds of seafood seems pretty MEGA to me.

  44. bhPixelFire


    I needed this.

  45. shade

    *grapes mega-smirk* now turns to *epic-mega-smirk*

  46. Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

    Mega-Toys reminds you that the Mega-Ball(tm) cannot speak. In the event that the Mega-Ball(tm) does speak, Mega-Toys urges you to disregard its advice.

    • Silly Zealot

      “Appears with a knife stuck in his eye” NOW you tell me?!

  47. LeaahWulf

    HA! Grape’s face.

  48. Skaikat

    Wonder if I’m the only one that gets the alt text reference. Happy Fun Ball anyone?

  49. TinFoilHats

    Yeah, don’t taunt MEGA-ball or you’d be in for a world-o-pain(take it from me, I’ve been smacked in the face by his goons on more than one occasion).

  50. Argent Stonecutter

    The RL Mega-Ball is more awesome than Bino’s. They’re big toy balls made for horses.

  51. thefirstonethere

    What IS this background? haha.

  52. Dalliaz

    I can’t imagine how a ”Mega-Rubber-Mouse” would be.

  53. Vuk91

    Peanut allergic to a cat stuff? Thats new

  54. I'll Eat Yourself

    Do not taunt the awesomeness that is the Apple Mega Ball! It’s just an ordinary ball, but it makes up for being so ordinary with its incredibly awesome name! :P

  55. Billy MT

    Mega Ball? :x Like, Megaman 8?

  56. Argent Stonecutter

    There is a Megamouse! It’s by Black and Decker!

  57. Chaplin

    Wow, purple looks super smug on that 3rd panel

    • T-Squared

      Oh? Is that the nickname we’ve given Grape now? :D

  58. CM

    Bino’s such a jerk, but it’s still so cute how much he loves his ball :3
