Too bad the warp pipe is blocking the driver side door.
Oy… their mom is quite a looker. x3
Some point in 87 to 94 this happened? Wow How old are they now?
Thanks to wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, mid-20s.
Why am I not surprised that a gamer and a furry like me will REALLY enjoy the references back to 8-bit gaming and modern gaming and enjoying the art style that you use. AMAZING COMIC, PLEASE DO NOT STOP THE SERIES!
wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff? (GASP) You watch Doctor Who?!
Well I do hate pears…
I wonder what they would make if they were in a park
AMAZING!!!!!! I’m not surprised if they built an entire army of cucoos!!
That’s down the street.
That is too cute, and it would be awesome seeing a Hyrule made of snow. Ha ha! XD
I like this happier version of Nicole.
Hey now. Tubular is a hard level. How do you have 99 lives there?! :O
I remember making my mom’s expression change just like that.
Think my transgressions tended towards siege machines though…
I wish I had the skill to make a bowser snowkoopa, and some snow. We got none here where I live.
Oh my god, this is brilliant. XD
I wish I had a Hyrule made of snow in the back yard…
Somewhat-important question… WHICH Hyrule? >:3 LttP or LA?
The entire land of Hyrule from the original instuction manual http://www.zeldauniverse.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/z1over.gif
No one ever remembers Hyrule from Link’s Adventure… XD
I wanna see their dad
If their mom is any indication then their dad probably has Nicole’s fur pattern but no *****.
No, their Dad can’t be a merle type. It’s forbidden to breed with two merle type for a good reason. There is a good chance that the offspring is disabled in one or more ways. That’s why merle dogs are more rare than the solid colored ones. But if you’re interested in this, do some research on dog breeding.
because this is irl now is it?
Yep, two merles have a 25% chance of producing a lethal white offspring. I learned that from Wikipedia while making sure you can have a red and blue merle in the same litter.
Does this mean that it is possible that they had another sibling at one point?
So what’s the difference between a merle and non-merle dogs?
Tried researching it and couldn’t find anything but the effects and genes of double merles.
What I’m trying to say is; does a merle have different coat colours and patterns?
Merle refers to fur with patches or freckles of color versus a non-merle which has solid colors. Aussies, in particular, can be black, red, blue merle, or red merle. If two merles have puppies there’s a 25% chance the puppy will get two sets of the merle gene. This can lead to health issues.
The Wikipedia entry for Australian Shepherds does a much better job describing this than I can.
I’d like to see their dad too. Hopefully he’s still alive.
He is. I just haven’t written anything with him yet.
Enjoyed this comic a lot. Textbook Snowser. Also enjoyed the sprinkling of Dr. Who in the comments Tim
The Doctor is always my fallback when faced with a paradox.
I agree… Their mom’s a bit of a looker. (Gotta love the furry portion of your fan-base, no?)
Funny thing is, when I got to “Ah, ****…” I suddenly heard her in the classic rural Minnesota mom accent (like from the movie Fargo, don’t ya know?) when I went back through and re-read the strip.
It’s the Tigra Paradox (also known as the Flora Paradox thanks to TwoKinda). “If you’d hit it, you’re a Furry. If not, you’re gay.”
really? Sexual attraction makes someone part of the furry fandom now does it? Then that means all star trek fans must have the hots for kirk
It doesn’t, Solus.
It’s mostly an old joke about restrictive perceptions. Many furries are furries without sexual perception (well, self-perception) being involved in it in the slightest. They do, however, tend to be in the minority.
That’s not, of course, saying that sexual attraction or desire is a major component of being a furry. It’s not. What it IS saying, though, is that attraction to certain furry characters or furry types on some level does at least make itself present in the mind now and then.
It’s sort of like being a human being. Sexual identity, thought, or perception is far from being a constant for humans. But it is the very rare human who doesn’t consider it at all. (This even includes many who consider themselves asexual. Even they think about sexual identity and attraction at times. They just usually do it less frequently and with a different personal reaction.)
really?! You didn’t get I was being sarcastic? I was making a point! -_-
Sarcasm doesn’t always translate well in text.
Besides, it was still a point worth making because many people DO make that mistake in their misconceptions. Which also makes it not unreasonable to err on the side that you weren’t being sarcastic and instead were simply taking offense to the joke on the grounds of not liking said common mistake those who aren’t part of furry-dom DO frequently make. (Often due to media misrepresentation.)
then tell the idiot and not me
It’s more a joke than anything else.
Cople of thingso:
1Why is only their mum wearing a shirt?
2 why does she not have a name?(But the lawyerc did?)
1) Judging by what her shirt is covering, I think her going without would raise the rating. x3
2) I’m sure we’ll find out eventually.
then explain why Nicole never wears a shirt
She’s wearing a fur coat all the time. But she does put on cloths for formal affairs.
I was making a point. He was saying that she’s wearing the shirt not to appear naked to which I pointed out that Nicole also is a female yet never, so far at least, wears a shirt. Like you pointed out yourself, the clothes are optional
1) Cloths are optional in this universe. She just happened to be wearing a Christmassy shirt.
2) She has a name, Mom.
Wow! That’s my mother’s name too!
Eerie, isn’t it?
Kade, Nicole, and their mom all look cute in this. I would love to see more of their adventures in the 16-bit era. I bet after they show off their mini Hyrule Kade goes full Godzilla on it.
It’s more likely he’d get lost in the Lost Woods.
The expressions on Mom are absolutely wonderful.
And though kids, while snow is an excellent malleable building material, it’s electronic properties are insufficient to manipulate time and space for warps. In other words, Mom is going to need to get to the car. Particularly before the cocoa runs out.
It boggles the mind how good Tim is at expressions.
I like making faces in the mirror. But I think the dog is getting tired of me holding her mouth open for reference pictures.
I wish I could make all of that stuff in my yard. All I can make is a crappy man made out of snow with sticks as arms.
I want their help next time it snows here…
where are some mlp references? I need them!
I’ve got a few pony jokes written, but for some reason they keep getting pushed back. I’ll have to fix that.
that’s a lot of snow, and a lot of time left unchecked
Nooo, I’m all caught up! D:
Just found your comic via an ad at the bottom of TopWebComics. One of the few times I’ve clicked on an ad willingly and I’m happy to say that so far I’m loving it. I’m a gamer, furry and brony, so this webcomic is perfect for me!
Nice depiction of Bowser there!
And thanks for the trip down memory lane!
Wait… The brown one is a female..?
That’s too funny. Signs a cartoon character is female:
1) eye lashes – nope
2) chest – covered in fur
3) wearing pink – check
in your defense it is quite obvious, due to the form of her chest
Woo.. ****.. I never noticed… Always thought that was a male… What a fool i am.
Y’know, I’ve been checking up on your comic every now and again for about a month, but I don’t think I ever said this: The whole reason I started reading it was because of your art style.
When I first saw the ad for it, I thought “Wow! When did Rick Griffin start doing another comic series?” But once I started to read and see the differences, I fell in love with your style.
That, and anyone who uses a StarFox-esque avatar is undeniably amazing. Is that based on the older ZSNES or 64 kind?
I’m glad you’re enjoying my little scribbles.
My icon is a modified Falco icon from the unreleased Star Fox 2 on the SNES. I also made one for Nicole that’s based off Miyu from the same game.
Nice. Very, very nice. Not many people remember that SF2 was supposed to happen. Or that most of what went into 64 was actually data from SF2. It’s a shame that Miyu and the poodle girl never made it in with Katt.
I’ve been reading your comic for a while and I really enjoy it. I hope it becomes well-known, Tim. Keep up the good work!
Until now, I didn’t know they were pups, I thought they were adults living in the same house
In the normal timeline Kade and Nicole are in their mid-20s. This strip takes place in the past when they were pups. “16-bit era” was my nerd way of saying “a long time ago.”
Hi Tim, love the comic. I remember you having an old Deviant Art page, but could you put it in your “links” section? DA plays nice with mobile.
Ah, OK, didn’t know that this strip shows a scene from the past
It’s neat to see this new aspect to Kade and Nicole’s lives, Tim!
..and Yeha, Mom’s a great addition to the cast! More merles! I’m lovin’ it.
You should look up “Kirby vs Buu Death Battle” on Youtube and give your reaction…
…in comic format!
Of course, a video reaction would be great, too.
Question. We’ve seen their mom but will we ever see their Dad?
Eventually. But first I have to write something that involves him.
