pink and kuddly, after a tomatoey kerfuffley? reminds me of the persian I adopted. she had been stuck in a nightmare bunch of nettles or some such. they had to shear her to get her clear of it. so she came to me skin and bones with a fluffy head. but oh how she blossomed as we fattened her up and her coat came in!
OMC! I didn’t know who that “new” anchor was at first!
Oh, the continuity! Brilliant.
Lupin is looking quite dignified in panel 3.
A little old fashioned, but that’s all right,
He wears his stain with pride!
So much is lost in print b&w newspapers! BCN and Wallace the Brave so much better in color!
I’m so freaking happy this carried over. If your curious why I thought it might not, most strips try to have the sundays be one off as some papers still cary only one or the other. Granted I figured it was more than likely as these days writers care less about that , especially with newer strips as it’s likely the older readers still getting comics in paper aren’t going to care that much about wether a new strip makes sense, but I thought you deserved to know why they recapped this at all.
Second i’m delighed for his adventures, Sophie’s weird intrest in it, and how well it fits him. I also like that even a one off sunday strip can lead to a brief status quo change.
Is Sophie is tickled pink by Lupin’s new look?
I love this pink Lupin! Hope it sticks for a while.
“Until further notice, I will be pink.” Well, why not? It does suit him, especially with his red tie, and after all, he has been known to change his color before (green paint, blue pen, and, um, sparkly glitter).
You look amazing, Lupin!
Somehow I forgot about yesterday’s strip and didn’t recognize Pink Lupin, LOL.
What would happen if he turned into a disco ball again while pink?
And so seasonal with Valentine’s Day coming up.
Kudos to Burt for managing to get Tommy and Sophie’s new apartment hooked up to the network so fast. Glad to see it was smoother than the first time!
and click the “next” button a few more times. This was the introduction of Sophie and might explain while it took some readers awhile to warm up to her. I wonder if the purple wallpaper was designed by the same artist as the purple paw paper? (Of course it was. It probably came from the Georgia Dunn Conglomerate!)
I think that for a week we should all “identify” as Pink.
Lupin rocks that pink! ♥
“Pink, it’s my new obsession
Pink, it’s not even a question
Pink on the lips of your lover
’Cause pink is the love you discover
Pink, it’s the color of passion
’Cause today it just goes with the fashion
Pink, it was love at first sight
Yeah, pink, when I turn out the light
And pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be alright
No matter what we do tonight" – “Pink” by Aerosmith
Check out today’s Marmaduke for some tiny kittens!
Has Georgia said whether this was based on an actual incident where the real Lupin broke a jar of tomato sauce and got it all over him?
I’ve been seeing this strip so long online in color, it’s hard to imagine that some people seeing it in black & white. Kinda like monochrome monitors (remember those?), or non-HDTV
I was attacked by a jar of tomato sauce! It jumped me when I wasn’t looking!
I have decided to rename Lupin, Bubblegum! ; )
Well, at least NOW Lupin can’t run around nekkid :)
how about strawberry short cat? or better still… strawberry feline. strawberry feline forever!
Blue, blue, my words are blue
Blue are my words without our Ragu
Gray, gray, our day is gray
Cold is our meal since sauce rolled away
Pink, pink, one cat of mine
Tinted from red, he’s my Valentine ❤️
- André Popp / Pierre Cour – Love Is Blue
Traditional: Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair
Pink is the color of my kitty’s fur
Tomato sauce there was right there
There must be sauce
There to roll in.
Of my kitty’s fur,
Yes, of Lupin’s fur!
Ya gotta love Lupin
And where he goes
Though mayhem follows where he goes
Yet still we know
The time will come
To clean the mess when he is done
To clean the mess when he is done!
So pink is the color of my kitty’s fur
Pink is the color of my kitty’s fur!
Sophie chimed in. She’s settling in. Good.
Lupin’s use of the passive voice and those indignant eyelids distance him from the from the so-called kerfuffle, but regular viewers know the truth!
I’ve always wanted a pink cat. Sigh!
Lupin is fluffling adorable!
I was just reading more comments from yesterday. To the person who had to clean up cooking oil: OMC! That must have been worse than pickle juice!To the one who found a kitty in the cabinet: Been there, done that. I keep thinking about putting little magnets on the cabinets but then they wouldn’t close property.
Called it! Glad to see Tommy and Sophie are so supportive of the new coloration. Hard to say how Burt feels, but he is definitely not putting effort into fully conveying Lupin’s pinkness.
Pink and black look good on Lupin!
Sophie, the artist, would love the new, look.
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
At the Artisans’ Studio
Maat-Tilda: I was thinking about creating some wearable fabric art.
Sophititi: That sounds like a great idea. Who do you think would like to participate as a model?
Tillie: Well, Elvis-Anum did look quite dashing in his Dancing Corsair outfit.
Soph: True, but he has been so busy with transcribing the Elven scrolls I’m not sure he has the time.
Tillie: I know, let’s have a Black and White fashion show. Puckmosis and Lupinium would make great models.
Soph: Great idea. Let’s ask them.
Puckmosis: Ooh, I like the sound of wearable art. Count me in.
Tillie: Excellent! Now do you know where Lupinium is?
Puck: Last time I saw him he was headed for the pantry.
At the Royal Pantry
Sue Chef: Did anyone hear a thwump?
Thomios: I think it came from where we keep the fruit juice.
Lupinium: Sorry I spilled some of the fruit juice.
Thomios: No problem. I think more will be arriving shortly. But you look like a multicolored fruit salad.
Lupinium: I kinda like this new look.
Ora Z: This is the first time I’ve ever seen a male tortie.
Lupin, you are so cute in pink!
“The tomato sauce attacked me.” That’s Lupin’s story and he’s sticking to it.
I doubted the continuity yesterday and I was wrong! I love that Lupin is still pink!
(I also love Burt’s chyron. “Imagine Lupin pink! It’s that easy!”)
OT but still cat-related: see today’s Cat’s Café…
Pink Panther, eat your heart out.
So Lupin has become a pinko … literally. And he does live in a commune of sorts …
(It’s been years since I last heard that epithet, fortunately.)
yaaaaaaaaaaaay! it’s not a sunday one off!
Lupin: “I’m not ‘pink’, I’m wearing my salmon-hunting camouflage!”
Tommy and Sophie are so kind!
Just in time for V day.
Couldn’t Resist: The Beatles: Lucy in the Sky…
Picture a cat jumping up on the counter
Where a jar of marinara resides
A paw comes up, you run there quite quickly
But too late: The jar starts its slide…
Suddenly a white kitty jumps down of the floor
Into a puddle of red
Into the bathtub, you wash off the cat, but no avail!
Lupin with pink fur is stunning!
Lupin with pink fur is stunning! Ohhh!
In the suit, he doesn’t look half bad! I must say that color does match.
Pink and fluffy, my friend’s cat got into some shampoo and was pink for weeks lol.
Lupin looks like an old time banker in that panel 3 pose.
Maybe he can borrow Tommy’s Hawaiian shirt to compliment his new color. Or his pink flamingo pj’s. Except they’d be way too big, dang.
Looks more tomato red than pink. Especially in that first panel. Looked more pink in the Sunday strip. Do we have some Italian holiday coming up and not that faux holiday on the 14th?
Adorable new pics or Ora Zella on FB:
for a secound i thought lupin was like a diffrent cat
Aagg — the concept of Georgia lovingly painting these strips and some places running them in b&w! How could she stand it!?
