Grape looks like a character from a video-game. Specifically Mia from .Hack.

Inspiration for her Purpleness explained? Or maybe it was just for the pun "Purrrrple"? (Zorori would be proud of that one...)

Hmmm... there does seem to be a resemblance there. Happy hunting finding other example of Housepets characters possible origins.

I just knew someone would look for a comparision between these two someday X3

But seriously, I highly doubt it. Don't even think Rick knows anything about the .Hack series in general. And Grape isn't one of those characters that needs other inspirational work to create.

Yeah, it's definitely a cool find, but I'm fairly certain the purpleness' explanation is as simple as having the main characters' names come out to Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly Sandwich.

Since Jill Sandwich, I remain open to all possible references. :ugeek:

I don't think that's what rick was thinking of but, eh,
If you could do a convincing Maxwell=Hermit because he went to the future and came back in time to copy the idea then we'd be getting somewhere. :D

I think the reason Grape is purple, because Grape Jelly is purple and we all know Rick likes his puns.
