Awww I really do love the Pooch and Percy strips, so this was just completely awesome to me, and now one of my favorites. Woot for cuteness x 389723492734!

Odd. I didn't like it. Sure, it's cute, but it's mindlessly cute. I much prefer the ones with some form of philosophical/psychological insight, and this feels like "Ready-to-use cuteness mix. Just add pre-existing characters."

It just symbolises the "good-life".
It's not the cute-factor, it's the feel good thing.

It's nice when these strips are done. It just lets you enjoy the art and not the joke. It shows that cartooning is about drawing not writing.

Cartooning is about writing too.

It's a slightly different way of telling a story, as there is no real plot. Instead, numerous isolated moments are illustrated, and the connection between them is made in hindsight.

You need to know about T's work to find the connection or meaning. For the answer we turn to Snorri:

Cartoons like this are scenery for the theatre of the mind.

there is more to writing a comic than dialogue, this particular comic is one of my favorite examples.

Man. Sunday strips are the best thing to ever happen to this comic. The colors...

Edit: Oh yeah, the notes on the fridge -- is that supposed to be the animals' to-do lists, or the owner's/Tatsuya's? Very Happy They can't write, after all...

I love this Sunday comic. And call me crazy, but the two lists of things to do look to me like the one with "Buy Food" is more like Pooch's priorities, and "Find love, rule world" is Percy's priorities. But that's just me. Mr. Green

The ball and the yarn -- One is ultra-decorated and colorful and looks busy on the outside, the other looks very plain but in actuality there is a lot more to it under the surface waiting to be unraveled, respectively. Optimists are happy and content with things as they are, cynics have to find something deeper within everything to be content with it?

Huh. I hadn't thought of that.
