There was a poll, which characters we'd like to see again.

AHAHAHA I love this cat! Oh Jasper, you're hopeless :lol:
Grape, how you dare to steal his moment to shine? :evil: (and since when they are so friends? I thought she thought he was weird).
I like a lot the new design of cats, they are perfectly defined now. I remember when some people couldn't tell who was a dog and who a cat. Now I think this would never happen again. :lol:

Oddly enough, I don't recall any characters in the old MGM cartoons (of which Tom & Jerry were a part) named Jinx. Hanna-Barbera (who worked on the T&J shorts) went on to make thousands of hours of cheap, Saturday morning fare, including a long-running segment of the Huckleberry Hound Show called Pixie and Dixie. The antagonist in that series was a cat named Mr. Jinx. Tom Cat was originally called Jasper in the first MGM theatrical releases.

Indeed. According to Wiki the first in what would be Tom & Jerry was 'Puss gets the Boot' starring Jasper and Jinx. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puss_Gets_the_Boot

I agree with you on this one. Grape looks good in this strip. I would like to see her character design in a side profile shot though, just to see how the angles on her face look that way. It doesn't have to be in the strip; I just want to see it.

By the way, whenever I'm on the comic page, there're always links to see character designs/sketches on some place called TWC, but when I click the link I just get some page like this:

And after I "vote", all that happens is the small image disappears and nothing else comes up. Is that just because the link to the content has expired, or is there some other reason?

I can still see the character sheets.

Did you try scrolling down a little bit, the image is a bit too big that the ad pushes the character sheet below it.

That is working. The character skeches are visible to me too - but it's the same since December. Maybe you can try to empty your cache.

BTW: Is there a way to see the old character sheets?

Rick was selling the original character sheets or sketches. It's not colored but it's all in there.

Edit: He has a colored but watermarked character sheet of peanut in the HP! twitter and some sketches of some of the wolves(Jack, Elaine) and Itsuki in his actual twitter: image 1 & 2 .

What's been going on is I would see that screen, and the ad in that screenshot would be the bottom of the page. I tried it again just now, and now after 'voting' I can see a character sheet with the one-armed wolf, Bruce, Falstaff and Truck, and the wolf couple that King bumped into at the Christmas party. (just before his proposal)

That's ok, but now that's the only one I can see, regardless of which link I click on. The main page says there's supposed to be one of Bailey, Peanut, Fox, and another one that's apparently the one I'm seeing.

(By the way, for clarity's sake, it's this page that I'm seeing.)

EDIT: I forgot to ask... Is that supposed to be the only viewable character sheet, or is something wrong somewhere?

Yes, there were no new/additional character sheets after that update. The character sheet was replaced almost every week at that period (Nov 2012), you wouldn't be able to see the previous character sheets until Rick posts them all.

Edit: There is also a thread that talks about those character sheets.

because the main page shows every announcement since the site was started. I don't even know if Rick can deactivate those links.

but we should probably get back to talking about Tom and J... I mean Jasper and Jinx

Yeah, about that... guessing from Grape's monologue, does it mean that not only did Jasper have a house fall on him, but since we've seen at least a few houses destroyed in the comic so far (easter egg hunt, for example) does it mean that destruction of property, namely houses, is considered normal in Babylon Gardens? Is it strictly limited to unoccupied homes, or have the Miltons discovered how to build a replicator?

I'd say replication is reasonable, but I find organically growing houses more likely. Just plop down a few seeds, water daily, and a new house will grow in 2-3 weeks. That, my aquaintances, is genetic engineering at its peak.

ya know... because of the limited exposure of these characters... I had thought Jasper and Jinx were a COUPLE like Joey and Squeak.

That was mainly from the comic where jinx is setting Jasper's foot on fire...
In it Grape asks if there are no "normal" couples - and then mentions not wanting to get into a love triangle not realizing that she already is in one.

So I thought there was a love triangle going on between Jasper, the lady cat and Jinx. And I thought Jinx was a girl.

Ie I thought she was upset that Jasper was courting someone else.

Never thought of T+J until this comic - even though that was one of the cartoons I watched *all the time*

Yeah, Rick did a poll a little while back (right before the comment section went down) asking what characters we wanted to see more of. That's why we're seeing the likes of Jasper and Delusional Steve.

I was just being sarcastic, though he really did something. He changed the colours of that sound effect in the last panel from yellow to red, implying blood.

The color change is hit or miss. A bit realistic and non Tom and Jerry, but still well within the forum rating....
