''Goblin Hollow'' is a FurryComic by [[Creator/RalphHayesJr Ralph E. Hayes]] (also known for ''TalesOfTheQuestor'' and ''NipAndTuck''). It stars [[SpeciesSurname Ben Bruin]], his wife Lily (a mountain lion), her younger sister Penny, and a septet of goblins (Sheldon, Velvet, Slick, Zoot, Mort, Gunther and Pif) that Ben inherited along with the old mansion they all live in.

In a previous incarnation, the comic was called "Under The Lemon Tree" and the goblins weren't goblins, but aspects of Ben's subconscious brought to life (Ex. Sheldon was his intelligence, Velvet his sensitivity, Mort his pessimism, etc.)

!!''Goblin Hollow'' contains examples of:

* AbortedArc: There were hints of a {{mysterious past}} that would explain why someone of Ben's skills and intelligence was basically working as a janitor at a Woolworth's. This seems to have vanished along with the previous continuity.
* AuthorAppeal: [[strike: RH Junior]] Ben is an unashamed gun "enthusiast".
* AuthorAvatar: Ben, originally
* BadassBoast: Ben has one toward old man Feldspar, seen [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=338 here]].
* BilingualBackfire: [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=333 "Actually I was deciding if I should tell you I speak Navajo..."]]
* BlahBlahBlah: An interesting variation found in [[http://www.rhjunior.com/GH/00368.html this]] strip.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Or in Penny's case, "Teenage Sister." (Hayes may have been going for "seriously troubled" and missed the mark a bit.)
* CaptainErsatz: Ookami Lobo: Totally not The Joker.
* CharacterDevelopment: An odd case. When Penny first arrived, she was very much the [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Bratty Teenage Sister]] described above. But as time went on, we saw instances of her [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=51 playing]] [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=248 nice]] with the other kids, showing more [[http://www.rhjunior.com/GH/00262.html good]] [[http://www.rhjunior.com/GH/00285.html grace]] about helping out around the arcade, moments of [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=305 real humor]] and, most importantly, [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=202 ferocious]] [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=203 protectiveness]] of her family. Most of the fandom saw her as having matured out of [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Bratty Teenage Sister]] and into a GrumpyBear with some DeadpanSnarker tendencies and a MamaBear right beneath the surface. The cartoonist, however, still saw her as an ill-behaved brat who needed to A) be brought up short with the kind of real discipline she's never had before, and B) get the dead little sister issues at the root of her troubled personality dealt with.
* ChristmasSpecial: [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=271 Not in D&D thank you kindly.]]
* ContinuityReboot: The comic dropped [=UTLT's=] LifeEmbellished tone to more supernatural hijinks, to the point where [[OrwellianRetcon the older strips were redrawn]] to give the menagerie their goblin wings.
* CrossOver: With ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' - though that turned out to be AllJustADream.
** And Ben decided to take the family to the [[NipAndTuck Malarky County Fair]].
* DoesHeHaveABrother: A goblin wants to marry a woman who skritches him behind the ears. She's married. But does she have a sister?
* ExpressDelivery: Lily goes from [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=388 "not even showing"]] to [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=389 "about to drop"]] in the space of two panels (via lampshaded TimeSkip).
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Walk about freely. [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=393 It's covered]]
* [[GirlsHaveCooties Girl Goblins Have Cooties]] (And boys are weird.)
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Those in the comic who have unmarried sex lives are of questionable moral character, at best. And the good people have ''really'' good sex.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Another Hayes staple.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Ben, by his own words, is of "mixed heritage." What that actually means has yet to be disclosed.
* HauntedHouse: Which Ben converted into an old-school arcade.
* HeartwarmingOrphan
* {{Hypocrite}}: The Neighborhood Watch, among others. When they complain about Ben's building, he proves that all of them have extended their own buildings onto his property.
* IndianBurialGround: Subverted, it's an ancient Indian garbage dump.
* InnocentCohabitation: Lily briefly moved in with Ben for protection, in earlier strips.
* InterspeciesRomance: Ben (bear) and Lily (mountain lion)
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique - [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=166 here]].
* LiterallyShatteredLives - The gargoyles, goblins' natural predators.
* NoBiochemicalBarriers: Feline Lily is pregnant with ursine Ben's child.
* ObviousPregnancy: Invoked, and subverted
* Oireland: Tam O'Shanter shakes.
* OurGoblinsAreDifferent: Starting with the fact that they're (now) green-colored FunnyCartoonAnimals, with bat wings and pointy ears.
* OutGivingBirthBackInTwoMinutes: Lily gives birth between comics.
* ParentalAbandonment: You can argue about whether sending Penny to stay with her sister counts or not, but if their parents couldn't guess (or if they ''did'' guess, they didn't warn Lily and Ben) that maybe, possibly, in theory, it was not inconceivable that Penny's issues just ''might'' have at least some of their source in [[spoiler:''her best friend's suicide'']], they were pretty useless anyway.
* SmellySkunk: Ronnie, whenever he's [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=19 scared]] or [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=86 surprised]].
* TimeForPlanB: When Ben tells the [[IdleRich Snotworthy]] [[MockMillionaire Heights]] [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense snobs]] politely that if they call it quits, he will too. But when the head JerkAss [[ScrewTheRulesIhaveMoney threatens to sue]] [[BullyingADragon Ben]] [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem for everything and anything he can think of]], Ben ''vividly illustrates'' '''''[[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=244 his backup plan]].''''' In ''[[BowelBreakingBricks blood-curdling]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation detail]]'' on how he would turn the leader and his friends from very rich [[EntitledBastard entitled bastards]] to LandPoor losers.
* TitleDrop: "Little sis… welcome to ''[[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=280 Goblin Hollow]]''."
* TrickDialogue: Penny on the phone, without actually having dialed.
* YouAllMeetInACell: [[http://rhjunior.com/Goblin_Hollow/GH0000.html#Comic=63 After the players complained]] that [[YouAllMeetInAnInn meeting in an inn]] was too cliche.
* UnclePennybags: Ben was able to start his arcade due to an inheritance from his Uncle Phineas(a ShoutOut to P.T.Barnum)... who rather than leaving him money, left him his extensive collection... of arcade games.
* WithThisHerring: Averted for an in-comic RPG session, because [[http://www.rhjunior.com/goblin-hollow-0067/ the GM thinks it makes more sense that way]].
