When Calvin & Hobbes Grew Up

Calvin and Hobbes
 We have all of the Calvin and Hobbes books by Bill Watterson and used to read the strip when it was originally in the paper. There is even a Tumblr page  at http://calvinhobbesdaily.tumblr.com/ which puts up a classic strip each day.

The Mr. and The Dude
 A few people have mentioned that The Mr. and The Dude look like Calvin and Hobbes all grown up.

The Dude
Giant Tiger Laser Vision activated!

I think Calvin would go to the New England Metal and Hardcore Fest this weekend, maybe we'll see you there! The Dude is definitely mellow as Hobbes and would prefer to nap at home.

  1. We had a kitty named Hobbes who got up to more mischief than Calvin ever dreamed of!
    Hope you enjoy the Fest!

  4. I'm struggling to make the connection. Does the Mr have stufffies and daydream a lot?

    1. We have 7 live stuffies now! Instead of daydreaming we plan real adventures. Your NZ adventure sounds amazing. :)

    2. It will be if I can get over the pain of planning it! Daydreaming is definitely easier! :D
