  5. Wait, I thought they only came out into the streets at night..?!

  6. peegs on the wing. i mean hoof.

  7. Leslie (NTA) says:

    ps: re the hovertext:

    Isn’t it sacriLIGigeous (sp) to offer HOT DOGS to GP’s?????
    ” Why, I oughhta ……”

  8. Jess&Friends says:

    Where are their tiny lil’ fanny packs? Where are they keeping their SPF 50 and maps?

  9. michellemybelle says:

    I need more background about this magical land where piggies run free in urban centers.

  10. What?! Are they like rats in other parts of the world or something? lol. I must know!!

  11. victoreia says:

    “On a rare day off, the members of G-Force get in some sight-seeing.”

  12. It’s very very cute but…what’s going on? Is this a guinea pig preserve/petting zoo with an urban theme?

  13. Piggies on parade!

    Theo, love the “cavy train.” Awesome.

  14. Guinea pigs on Parade!

  15. Alexis Jinx!

  16. Jadebeloved says:

  17. Looks like Alexis owes Kitty a Coke.
    [marks scorecard]

  18. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!!

    I want a peeg backstory! pweez???

    [Y’know, I wouldn’t mind hearing more, myself – Ed.]

  19. “Now wait, the Bronx is… UP? So then where’s the Battery?? Yer holding the map upside down!”

  20. If they were really in NYC, they wouldn’t be moving– they would be stopped dead in the middle of Fifth Avenue looking for Planet Hollywood, while the crowd parts around them.

    PS “Cavy Train”– snerk!

  21. Three little piggies went to the market…

  22. Kristabelle says:

    @SoCalSis – On the Town ref for the win! 😀

    John, George, Ringo…where is Paul?????

  23. Paul is dead.

    (not really, of course; just dredging up the old hoax)

  24. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    What’s the little one going to get on her hot dog? CATCHUP. [crickets chirp dully. someone coughs.]

    @Theo. Cavy train. You rock.

  25. CatViccer says:

    The lil’ one in the rear is all, “wait for meee!” Look at hind feetsies trying to keep up!

  26. They really need longer fur for a good Abyssinian Road album cover.

  27. All the little piggies lately have made me one very happy CO fan! Happier than normal! Thank you!!

  28. They’re looking for the store that sells those crocheted hats for guinea pigs.

  29. I think they may be on campus running away from the biomedical research unit. Just a thought.

  30. I’m with Kris10. There has definitely been a GP deficiency on CO. thanks for pumping them up recently.

  31. [now imagining helium-inflated guinea pigs, distressingly]

  32. I like the one in the middle. He reminds me of candy corn.

    @January- My cousin gave me a GP when I was five that he stole from the lab during his med school days. I loved that little GP.

  33. Kristabelle says:

    Theo – thank you for responding “correctly”! 😀

  34. @Camille — that GP in the crocheted yellow hat is now my work-puter’s wallpaper — makes me grin everytime I boot up (and that one’s a big girl now!!!)

  35. Is all the recent guinea piggery due to that guinea pig movie in theaters? Not that there needs to be a reason or anything. Bring on the piggies! Preferably with audio!!

  36. CoconutCheez says:

    piggies piggies piggies *sing happy song, MEEP* O i will be dreaming about the magical land of free piggies 2nite!

  37. Wha’ the…

    Where is this world of cuteness? I will buy a one-way ticket there, please. I will live in a world where pigs run freeeeeeeee!

  38. Leslie (NTA) says:


    if you’re married or have a Significant Other, I hope that they coddle & luxuriate you sufficiently. If you aren’t, may I make an Initial Public Offering???? Goodness; you even provide brilliant BACKGROUND to your punchlines !!

    (bows in subservience to tha brillleeeeeance)

  39. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ coconutcheez:

    AND there IS a Beatles song called …………………………………………………………………
    “PIGGIES!!!!!!!!!!!” am too thrilled at this matchup to bother taking time to see which album but it was ca 1966 or 68 ish….

  40. One Eyed Daruma says:

    I especially like the new tag: ankles.

  41. I demand a close up of their little feeties!!

  42. @Leslie (NTA): It’s from the white album.

    Everywhere there’s lots of piggies
    Living piggy lives! (oink oink oink)

  43. @ Teho – I had to look up the “cavy” reference (thank you, wikipedia). Your sophisticavy humour was almost lost on my small brain.

  44. Not that I'm suggesting this is 'shopped says:

    Did y’all see the “Nova Science NOW” episode where they featured a guy who can determine. .. for sure.. if a photo is tampered with or not. It’s all about the light(s) and shadow(s)….

  45. Hi Ho, Hi Ho,
    It’s off to work we go !

  46. what u mean shopped.. only today a peeg beat me to a cab on park avenue/25th street

  47. it was very stylish by the way

  48. LOL, Khadija.

  49. the back story is these peegies got away from their human in a park in New York. They were 30 seconds from a clean get away (and immortalized in this picture) before their human got them back in their house. The day ended safely.

  50. ffleur, is that for real? I used to graze my pig on a small hill outside my office. Everyone once in a while he would make a break for it, but his legs were so short he never got very far very fast.

    Anyway, I’m sure glad the pig family was rescued before they ran into traffic!!!

  51. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ ffleur:

    fhfhfhfhfhfhfhew [aka “phew!”] !!!!!!!!!! THAT’s a relief !!
    I was already concerned for their well-being in such a fast-traffic setting, when I first saw the pic !!!

  52. @January Thanks, that’s just disturbing….. Anyway, PIGS!

  53. Little piggies all in a row. How adorable.

  54. I, too, have the GP with the crocheted hat as wallpaper. Makes me happy every day just looking at her. And also happy to see the plethora of peegs on CO. Keep ’em coming!

  55. I am loving all the peegs on Cute Overload lately! And I’m very glad to know they were safe 🙂

  56. Wouldn’t that be “Pigsburgh?”

  57. Wait! someone said there’s a movie with guinea pigs? What is it???

  58. Thanks, Meg. Now my brain is BUSTED and I still have to do payroll!

  59. I can’t stop smiling. I with you all who are excited about the plethora of piggies, as they are often not featured enough on CO. I love the last little piggie running to catch up! I think it’s funny that the people (at least by their sneakers) don’t seem to notice/mind the guineas! (I have two guineas… and dogs and a cat and I want more)! Thanks CO!

  60. O H M Y o:
    They are like ducks!

  61. Pittsburgh? Shouldn’t that be Piggsburgh?

  62. ellie the one and only says:

    mom pig: “and please avoid being stepped on, that would be a very messy problem”
    kid pigs: “yes mom”

  63. Everyone got their buddy with them?

  64. I want to believe…
    This is just a detail pic of the peegquator

  65. Everyone sing it with me! Ham-tar-o! Little hampsters big adventures…

    Whyyyeeee did they have to cancel it in the states!
