Calvin & Hobbes Hobbes

"Life's disappointments are harder to take when you don't know any swear words." . . . Calvin

Dance . . .

Calvin and Hobbes is the greatest cartoon strip ever created. It is much more than a cartoon strip -- it's a way of looking at life. What is real? Is Hobbes real? Then why can't Calvin's mom and dad see the hilarious poses Hobbes has made in the snapshots Calvin has taken of him?  . . . Dance And why, when Calvin has transmogrified into a tiger, can't his parents see the change? More importantly, why did Bill Watterson draw Calvin in his human form in three of the four panels when Calvin is asking his dad if he notices the transmogrification? Food for thought. If you are interested in more philosophical debate on these questions and more, follow some of the links below . . .
