PsyCon is the 59th arc in Housepets!.
Tarot asks Peanut to help him somewhere located in "the space between spaces." She tells him to hold a device called an astral projector, and warns he may feel a bit of tingling. The device zaps Peanut, teleporting them to PsyCon, a convention for psychics and mythical creatures. Peanut argues that it was not 'a bit' of tingling, but Tarot interjects that he's still standing, so it falls under the legal definition.
Tarot is running a booth called 'Dragon Astral Traveling Service,' and asks Peanut to keep her seat warm while she's at the panel. Soon after she leaves, a small, yellow creature comes up and asks Peanut if he can get him tickets to 'the end of time' so he may prove a point. Peanut happily obliges, although the creature says he'll pass on the enjoyment prediction.
Peanut doesn't realize his mistake upon Tarot's return, noting that Tarot takes vacations to 'the end of the universe' all the time. She replies 'the end of time' is a bit farther than that, and that they may never see the creature again. Tarot forgives him for the error, but explains she'll have to make a bunch of phone calls, to which Peanut questions how that's a thing here.
- This arc has a sequel: PsyCon2: PsyConner
- The yellow creature featured is Ponbon, a character created by Rick for a different series, and often used as an avatar. He had been previously featured as an ice cream treat and as a parade balloon.
