The mind of a six year old is amazingly similar to some CEO's
I need to learn how to put graphics in the post.
I sure miss Calvin.
The name of the strip was a clue that it was about more than a boy and his stuffed tiger.
However Have a Jelly Donut!
Miss them too.
I don’t know if he still does, but occasionally, he would declare himself President for Life. Sounds like someone we know.
I absolutely love this comic strip. I wish Watterson would turn this into a movie. It doesn't have to be live-action. It can be animated or CGI and I'd still see it.
My grandson (now in college)and I would laugh ourselves silly over Calvin and Hobbs....the funniest little books ever! And so clever.
The pair are named after John Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political philosopher. At its height, Calvin and Hobbes was featured in over 2,400 newspapers worldwide; as of January 2010, reruns of the strip still appear in more than 50 countries. Nearly 45 million copies of the 18 Calvin and Hobbes books have been sold.
We were all newbies, once. Go here to learn the simple code to insert pictures into your posts:
No one publishes C and H anymore. The author quit. However you can buy complete C and H books at Amazon. It makes a wonderful family Gift.
My sons loved Calvin and Hobbes. Had most of their books.
The boys lived in our basement. No bathroom but there was a sliding patio door that opened into our backyard.
I could never get grass to grow outside that door.
Me too! Last week, I was playing catch with my daughter, and she made a wild throw that bounced off of two or three things. I declared “We’re playing Calvinball!”- which confused the kid, but made my wife almost double over with laughter :)
I have a great graphic of the theologin and the philospher drawn in C&H fashion. Could email
Calvin and Pogo were my 2 faves.
Sheer genius. The genius of it is that Calvin is a kid and the author succeeded in having Calvin be an actual kid. Not a kid with an adult’s mindset.
Yes, but Bill Watterson will never agree to do a video.
Fabulous, fabulous strip.
I’ve seen that image taped on quite a few Philosophy professors’ office doors.

Thats it. My all time favorite cartoon
Here’s the unadorned URL for the Free Republic HTML Sandbox. I just checked, and it’s there.
Still one of the best comic strips ever.
I have given all my books to my oldest - he is 8 - and he will be quietly reading them and it is one of his favorite pastimes.
I encourage it because he could be trying to read much worse...
Thanks, but this is referenced at the HTML Sandbox and it is what is missing:

We were going to name our son Calvin but buckled to family and peer pressure against it.
Besides Calvin being Hobbes’ best friend, Calvin was my favorite President (but not my favorite theologian).
