I have every single Calvin and Hobbes collection kicking around at home. My favourite comic strip by far! If I had any with me at the moment, I'd scan in some of my favourites. One that makes me laugh every time... Calvin is banging nails into the coffee table with a hammer. His mom comes running into the room, screaming something like "CALVIN WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THE COFFEE TABLE?!" So he looks up and says "is that some kind of trick question?" Classic! Or the one where he buys a record made by a satanic metal band that glorifies violence and demoralises women. Hobbes says something like "your mother will go into conniptions when she sees that lying around" to which Calvin responds "well, I certainly didn't buy it for the music" and tosses the record into the rubbish bin, keeping the album sleeve.

Oh, and...

SPACEMAN SPIFF!

Some of my faves:

- Calvin transmogrifies into a mini-Hobbes. He comes out and looks so adorable and small and says something like, "Yeah, I'm a little disappointed, too" or something. (this one didn't link up well)

- Calvin's chewing bubble gum & it pops all over his face and he exclaims: "I've blown my face off!"

- Calvin sits in the toilet & flushes, sending him into a twirlie....then he walks past his mom and she says, "Did you take your bath?" to which Calvin replies, "Yup!"

That one was great! Calvin as a mini-Hobbes is so cute. Gosh, that particular strip brings back memories. I was still in primary school when I first saw that one!

Calvin's dad is EXACTLY like my own and in the worst way possible. Getting a stomach bug? It builds character. Failing an exam? It builds character.

Am I the only one who tried playing Calvinball as a kid?

I appreciate!

I still want to buy The Complete Collection, if I can still find it in the shops. It's expensive, but probably sooooo worth it!

And for some more Calvin & Hobbes love:

Amazon has it for $99. Expensive, but less so than the original price of $150.

My mother-in-law got it for us last Christmas. We thought she was crazy--since we already own all of the other books that came out---but I'm glad we have it anyway.

Nope! We played it too! In our version it got quite violent, so my mom kiboshed us ever playing it again.

Some more of my favourites: the snowmen series, the Transmogrifier, Hampster Huey and the Gooey Kablooey.

Nope!

How about the Horrendous Space Kablooie, Calvin's much jazzier version of The Big Bang...I love that.

In the collection my aunt gave me, she wrote a little note inside, saying how I reminded her of Calvin--probably because I was always draping blankets over chairs and end tables, pretending to be in a space capsule that was travelling off somewhere.

Spaceman Spiff...my hero!

Trivia question: what was Calvin's dad's job?

(I only remember this because I grew up to have the same job!)
