The Pending Litigation Of Spot

Discussion (109) ¬

  1. B.Squirrel

    Peanut’s comics are the best! :3

    • Silly Zealot

      Compared to what?

      • B.Squirrel

        Why, compared to anything other than stock Housepets, of course. Regular Housepets is so sublime that it watches over the other web- comics squabbling to compete for best in show with a knowing grin.

        • StPyre

          penut and grape, comic lords, prevail over all the webcomics as benevolent rulers.

  2. Zaitsev

    Ah yes, just in time for me to be filling out my W-2.

    • Silly Zealot

      What does W-2 stand for?
      Wacky Wally?
      Worried walnut?
      warmongering wanderer?
      Wasteful walz?

      • Zaitsev

        All of the above and more.

      • Frank

        Apparently, because it’s the second form they made related to wages (one wonders why they haven’t made a new, easier one yet)

  3. IceKitsune

    Heh at least hes branching out story wise

  4. GeckoZY

    Yey! A two page spot comics!

    Lol, Objection!

  5. Marco

    Star Trek is awesome! Good one Rick :3

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Isn’t this Green Lantern?

      • Adryan

        I see some Phoenix Wright…

        • Jason

          Or perhaps some Ace Apollo…

          • aicivilwar

            And country music?
            “Where have all the cowboys”…

  6. Gabe23

    “Spot & Order”

    • Silly Zealot

      Spot’s victims unit.

      • Frank

        You know, that might not be such a bad idea. It would be like the League of Supervillains, but taking way longer to get things done!

      • Z24


        Crafty Superdog Investigation.

    • Frank

      I can see it now.
      Bran: thus the zorfquad didn’t nihlist?
      Spot: Objection
      Judge: Sustained
      Grape: Why?
      Peanut: Leading the witness
      Grape: Ah
      Bran: I’ll rephrase…

  7. xhunterko

    Commitee justice.

  8. Xane

    Oat, wheat, or rice bran? :D

    • aicivilwar

      Rasin Bran is two scoops ahead?

  9. Tarka TGO

    Well, Spot doesn’t need Phoenix Wright to represent him, at least.

  10. D-Rock

    Well, that’s a great way to get out of there. Brans of the Universe, gotta admit, that’s a new one.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The Wizard of Oz, when the Wizard gave the scarecrow “Bran new brains”.

      • D-Rock

        Really? Never noticed that.

        • Rick Griffin

          That was in the book!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I read the book so many times I remember it better than the movie.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Bran mixed with pins and needles to make him sharp.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Ah, here are both versions!


          • D-Rock

            No wonder, then, only read the book once. Also only seen the movie, maybe twice. Yeah, I’m late to that party. Book was pretty cool, with so much that wasn’t included or changed in the movie.

            Did see the play during a class trip, mostly because “Wicked” wasn’t playing at the time. Amazing, honestly.

  11. Vuk91

    Oh, Spot, you clumsy pup

  12. Marco
    • Wilford B. Wolf

      Well played, well played.

  13. Jibbs

    Oh my god, Peanut!! XD

  14. Marco

    It would be nice to see Grape come up with her very own comic and superhero! :)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Grape writes fanfic.

      • thebrokeartist

        And it’s pretty naughty if you know what I mean.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          We don’t actually know that.

          • thebrokeartist

            Well it’s cheesy at least.

        • Dissension

          Don’t get creepy, please.

          • Aerion Snowpaw

            Actually, not so much creepy as jumping to conclutions; She’s embarrassed about the fanfic, but I’d be embarrassed about anything I hadn’t spent a few months re-writing until it’s actually readable.

  15. The Wolf Kin

    The Pending Litigation of Spot *(Superdog)*

    Sorry, that was bothering me.

    Also, hmm, not a one-off. Looks like we have our first new-style Spot arc!

    • Wilford B. Wolf

      Sorry, but one-off is in the tags list. I guess we get a week of gags.

      I’m okay with this.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It says “one-off” in the tags.

      • The Wolf Kin

        Hmm, I could swear is didn’t say that when I posted. I apologize, my mistake.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Maybe Rick did a ninja edit.

          • Dissension

            *carefully affixes his halo*

          • Silly Zealot

            So this week is a warm up for the next story-line? One so great and awe-inspiring that will change mankinds worldview on verything and invariable inspire all artists of all media and forms of expression until the end of time and beyond?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            According to Rick’s tweets, it’s going to make everyone hate him.

          • LeaahWulf

            I wonder when the next comic will start.
            Why will everyone hate him?

            We’ll have to wait and see.

          • The Wolf Kin

            Gah! And now I’m worried about my favourite characters.

  16. CHAOKOCartoons

    Thats a good question unidentified bran, what did happen to the cowboy?! PS: Grape’s expression= X3

  17. Khazix

    Beware the forces of the Bran! Hide all of your whole milk, for they shall steal it away in the night.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I thought that was raccoons.

      • aicivilwar

        I thought they wanted the night itself…

  18. Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

    And to the head bran, I bequeth… A BOOT TO THE HEAD!

    • SkeletorPFunk

      …and another one for Jenny and the wimp.

  19. AleColin

    Do these Aliens ever had a court because it looks like they haven’t had one.

  20. Duster

    The look on Grape’s face is just awesome. Peanut at least has a good critic.

  21. Secret

    The best kind of expression grape can give, is a silent one.

  22. shade

    grapes look is priceless there. peanut still hasnt given up on spot it seems and for his dedication i’m happy for him however i’m going to be honest and say the following. i dont really like spot for some reason. -le gasp-

  23. Shuma Jindivi

    something that EVERYONE should do at least once in their life……


    • Silly Zealot

      I object to that!
      Wait…. Do’h!

      • Peanut

        Objection!!! I haven’t demanded your plea!

  24. Rick-O

    maybe the cowboy went to the bathroom – you may find him there, bran X

  25. WingedWolfGirl

    Sorry, all orders must be signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, queried, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      And recycled as firestarters.

    • Multani Raynz

      I now have a sudden urge to reread “The More Than Complete Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”

      although, that might be almost, but not quite, completely unlike what you may have been referencing

  26. ToaSoul

    anyone else think of Phoenix Wright we he said “OBJECTION”

    • Frank

      And that was fully intentional

    • shade

      yeah i did. even did the implied motions as well.

  27. Hotep the psychic

    Me and im happy i managed to steal form XQ32 before court started *waves paper over his head* suckers

  28. Frank

    It’s so… accurate!

  29. Salenstormwing

    You see, this is why I don’t watch Law & Order. I get the same face as Grape.

  30. kimo

    it looks like the spot bit was free drawn and then scanned in, was it?

  31. Argent Stonecutter

    PS, Rick: “repertoire”.

  32. thebrokeartist

    I’ll be honest with ya… I really don’t care about Spot AT ALL!!!!

    • Kimo

      this statement makes me sad… very very sad, i mean c’mon he’s Spot (superdog)!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!1!!!!!1!one!!!!!

      • thebrokeartist

        Well sorry if I don’t care about Spot. I don’t hate him, I just don’t care about him.

        • Neo

          Maybe the word you could use is “indifferent”. Also I got my Wi-Fi back.

    • Foxstar

      So noted. We really care how much you don’t care here at the mod section.

    • Duster

      Try to remember that the spot “super dog” comic skit is meant to be silly and it also reflects on some small level the relationship between Rick Griffin the Artist/Writer and one of his like-minded characters I.E. Peanut. So just let Peanut be creative and i’m sure eventually after Peanut has done enough comics they will start to become more appealing or in your case affable.

      • thebrokeartist

        I understand that Spot is Peanuts comic book character that he made. And I understand that Peanut likes making his comic and they’re silly some times. But I just don’t care. Besides we all have a character in housepets that we don’t care about and Spot happens to be the one I don’t care about.

        • Silly Zealot

          I must say that, while I can’t get past the “amateur comic writer that makes the plot on the go”, the frase “awesome as charged” is worthy of rememberance.
          And, please, cut the lil’ guy so slack: Peanut draws like a dog.

          • thebrokeartist

            I know that much so stop telling me that I hate his comic. I really REALLY LIKE all the chracters in housepets. I really do. I’m not just interested in Spot that’s all. So please please please PLEASE stop making it sound like I hate Peanuts character. I really like Peanut cause he’s one of my favourite characters and I really like the things he goes through, does and has to stand for. So PLEEEAAASE STOP making a big deal out of it. Peanut would understand that much. <:(

          • Silly Zealot

            The last frase, “cut him some slack: he draws like a dog.”, was meant to be funny and not taken at face value. Seems my mission was a complete failure and now I’ll be severily reprimended by my superiors for it.

  33. Hotep the psychic


    • aicivilwar

      Oh snap!

    • Frank

      why did I have to read that in Doctor Calico’s voice?

      • aicivilwar

        I was thinking the nerdy/fanboy pidgeons from “Bolt”
        But whatever works… or doesn’t…

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Dale in “Dale Beside Himself”. Great episode.

          “We’re made of unstable molecules! We LIKE blowing up!”

  34. GameCobra

    So Rick… Have you ever gone where noone has gone before? /nerd

  35. FluxCapacity

    Sorry, but I really don’t like the new Peanut and Grape drawing style. I just want the old style back.

    • Silly Zealot

      I admit the snouts on some of the characters (and specially Sasha’s new design) are not something I enjoy, despite being about three months since the new style was implemented.

    • Dissension

      Peanut and Grape didn’t actually change very much…

    • CHAOKOCartoons

      thats sooo good to know… :|

      • CHAOKOCartoons

        ok sorry if that was too sassy, what I meant was you could of commented on that weeks ago, why chose the strip where there just in one pannel?

  36. Tom Flapwell

    “Repitoire”? He doesn’t just misspell a few things; he mispronounces big words. Cute.

  37. I'll Eat Yourself

    I have almost no idea what they are saying. I just no that they failed to do some court stuff that would allow them to do this trial in the first place. XD

    • Silly Zealot

      Anyone ever saw “The twelve tasks of Asterix”? One of the tasks involved getting a legal clause to allow them to get to the next task inside an aptly-named court house known as “the house that makes you crazy”.
      Almost failed that one.

    • Dissension

      Yes, that’s the joke.

  38. cms40

    Odd how there are like 20 of them, but you know the more the marrier.

    • Frank

      interesting idea. I hadn’t considered that “Frank” and the other judge/alien/whatever might be a couple, but it certainly looks that way now that I re-read it

  39. Argent Stonecutter

    I do like how he consistently draws that one bran with droopy ears.

  40. venshadowcry

    Politics, it is funny to watch X3

  41. Zanneel

    You know, it’s about the time when I realize 3 years of college English education amounted to nothing more then knowing how to properly spell and pronounce “Repertoire” and notice it’s misspellings in online comics that I start to feel real bad about my life.

    • D-Rock

      Don’t worry too much.You’ll look more professional if you notice misspellings anyway. For this, just think that Peanut is pronouncing it phonetically.
