Calvin and Hobbes: The adult years [Fan trailer video]
Yahoo! News ^ | Apr 4, 2013 | Mike Krumboltz

Posted on 04/05/2013 10:54:13 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

What if Calvin of "Calvin and Hobbes" fame grew up? And what if, instead of leaving behind his talking tiger and visions of dinosaurs and life in outer space, those visions followed him, slowly turning him insane?

Well, it would make for one heckuva movie trailer, that's for sure. At least, so thought the good folks at Gritty Remakes, who created a pseudo-preview featuring Calvin as a college-aged man with a lot of issues. He still talks to his imaginary friend. His mind still goes on flights of fancy. But these aren't journeys of whimsy. The adult Calvin is a man on the edge.

He stopped because he didn’t want the strip to get stale. Integrity is bittersweet.

Watterson did such a good job of showing how children wrestle with complex ideas.

There was a lot of “nose pinching” all around in that strip.

Wish they’d release a small book featuring all (and only) the C&H snowman strips.

I have so many C&H books.
What a great observation on personality the entire strip was.

I love everyone in the series.

LOL, I still remember that strip whenever I think about Calvin and Hobbes. I especially love the way his mom totally lost it.

I’m proud to say that I read every one of C&H strips from beginning to end. Beginning in the Chicago Tribune and ending in the Milwaukee Urinal Cesspool. Best comic strip in memory.

“Zits” comes in a very close second.

Amazing, AMC or Scifi (Yeah I know they go by Scify now) needs to turn this into a miniseries.

Good find. This link takes you directly to the Youtube site of the creator. You can watch in a larger default screen.

I lost interest in comic strips years ago when Calvin and Hobbes ceased publication.

I have the complete works of C&H. I only read it once a year or two as once you start you can't stop!

I love his dad telling him how everything was black and white before the 1940s, and this one.

Pretty good (anyone catch those C&H in the real world pix?), but the next thing you know, Hollywood will make a movie about a kid whose teddy bear talks and now that he’s an adult he’s still with him, foul-mouthed; horny; sounds like Peter Griffin ...oh wait they did...

Indeed I do. Also; “Pickles”, “Baby Blues”, “Mutts” and “Get Fuzzy”. After that I read the Cesspool’s editorial page and try to determine which was more comical.
