This article turned me on to the existence of this documentary film and I thought I'd pass it on. (Also note the sort of 3D-ization of some of the Calvinistic snowmen concepts set to music as linked to in the comments.) Like someone in the comments said, I loved Bloom County but love Calvin and Hobbes even more. Snowmen, Spaceman Spiff, Calvinball, philosophical discussions, the mind and universe of a child, and one heck of a stuffed animal. If you love SF and fantasy or comic strips or existence (or want to) and you're not familiar with the strip, check it out. :)

I really love Calvin and Hobbes. I actually bought the complete collection box set and have it on the book shelf at home. It was my favorite as a kid growing up in the 80's. It is still relevant today and very enjoyable to read as an adult.

I was actually talking with a co-worker about it today strangely enough. I told him before I had any books as a kid I would cut the Calvin strips out of the paper and gluestick them to paper to make my own book. Pretty sad hey?

Not really! Pretty admirable I'd say.


Calvin and Hobbes were the bomb!!! I regret their absence often.
