I'm surprised it took me this long to get round to doing a Halloween themed strip. The Americans always take it so much more seriously than the Brits do.

Still haven't had the opportunity to see this movie yet...is that sad...?

Eh, me purposely...I hate dressing up in costume, it makes me feel really embarrassed. Last time I tried to dress up in costume was for some kind of spirit day during high school when I attempted to dress up as Krusty the Clown from the Simpsons. I...did not have a fun experience with that at all :D

The one time I went to a Halloween party in the cub scouts, I went as a cowboy ^^. Borrowed my granddad's hat he bought in America.

YAY, Greenwich Mean Time means that these strips go up at Midnight like they're supposed to.

Also, double YAY for the Zootopia/Zootropolis idea for their costumes :D LOL.

It's a cool thing seeing Russ and Linda dressed up as Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from Zootopia!

I don't celebrate Halloween anyone, I've kinda outgrown it. But I do love seeing girls in sexy Halloween costumes! :D

I love the costumes they have on ;-) I bet all of y'all know what I'm gonna be this year.... That's right, Trevor Phillips!!! I've got the sweatpants, white v neck t shirt, and the boots. Now all I have to do is get them all dirty and filthy with anything I can find. Yes, this is how much I like Trevor Phillips XD and I personally believe that your NEVER to old to go trick or treating. ITS FUN!!!!! This year, I'm gonna try to scare people more than getting candy. So I must practice ;-)

Very good! Let me know how you get on :)

I suppose if I were to cosplay I'd go as the Ninth Doctor in Doctor Who ^^. Or Rimmer in Red Dwarf. I don't have the necessary outfits though ^^

This is how it went. I got dressed like trevor Phillips, went to meet 3 of my friends, try to start one of those friends quad, played around with it at this factory with lots of dirt piles, waited till it got darker, took our bikes to mcdonalds, started getting candy from the rich houses next to my neighborhood, I acted crazy, met another friend, walked back to my house, hung out and they left and that's pretty much it.... Got mostly Lollipops, but I did good, I prefer KitKats :-P what really stinks is that it was a school night >:-( I HATE SCHOOL!!!!!
Anyway that's what I did. Sorry if I said a little too much, but you wanted to know how it went. So here it is :-) I like to write back to you. I like to talk a lot too as you can see also XD

Linda added the "U" to neighbors. She really has been hanging around Russell a lot. XD

Happy Halloween from Transmission, all the way from Good ol' Scotland, even though they don't really celebrate it. XD

Looks like some jerk neighbours are going to be egged and TP-ed for this. XD

Thanks - except Stoke-on-Trent is not in Scotland :P it's in England. Mind you the comic itself is made in Scotland XD

Sorry, it's confusing to remember which place is which for the setting. But thanks for correcting me. ^^;

Yeah I know how people feel about a Disney movie with furries in it, always with the walking-talking-animals thinking if they dressed up like them during hunting season, they would be shot.

In Australia the retailers invariably decorate their shops in Halloween themes, yet you see very little actual Halloween activity from ordinary citizens.

Nevertheless I keep some candy on stand-by just in case I get a knock on the door, cause it's embarrassing to tell the children that you don't have anything to give them.

I'd like to also express my appreciation for your Nick & Judy reference KF! Nicely done there!

Trivia: One of my elders at church claimed that Halloween originated from something called the "Festival of Darkness" which was traditionally followed by the "Festival of light", but the latter has fallen out of fashion. I'm no historian, so I can't vouch for this.

Shops here get into the Halloween spirit too ^^. But Americans still take it a lot more seriously ^^

I can't think off-hand of anything Americans don't take seriously, fun least of all!
