Truly one of the best comic strips ever done, sadly it has been discontinued by its artist, Bill Watterson. Not only does the comic bring something of an amazing vocabulary to a medium usually lacking in that division, but it is also hilariously funny, and often times cute.

The protagonist is Calvin, a six year old that enjoys torturing his teen-aged babysitter, and romping in the woods with his best friend, Hobbes. They have fun by holding top-secret GROSS meetings in their treehouse, and throwing various assortments of things at Susie, the focus of Calvin's frustration at times.

The side-kick of sorts is Calvin's stuffed tiger, which, at least in his imagination, is a real tiger that likes tuna fish sandwhiches, and steals his covers in bed. Also loves to have his belly rubbed

Basically, if you haven't read anything of the C and H variety, your life is lacking...

n/v (a calvin and hobbes/ calvin and hobbesed) something ridiculous, and potentially dangerous. (aka backing a car out of the driveway and into the ditch, riding a flimsy wagon off the edge of a cliff, throwing ice/snow balls at girls)
The Chicago Tribune still runs Calvin and Hobbes strips.

I just Calvin and Hobbesed... I jumped off a bridge and swam in sub-zero water!!!

The last throwback to the days of Little Nemo... the artsiest of the artsy... quite simply the greatest comic of the last twenty-five years.

Kickass monster fixated, transmorgifier time travel machine, boy and imaginary tuna-loving tiger adventures with most excellent art from Bill Waterson's brain.

The most kickass comic series ever written! Bill Watterson is my home dog!
Calvin:Mom's not feeling well, so I'm going to make her a get well card.
Hobbes:That's thoughtful of you
Calvin:See, on the front it says 'Get well soon, and on the inside it says because my bed isn't made, my clothes need to be put away, and I'm hungry. Love Calvin.' Want to sign it?
Hobbes:Sure, I'm hungry too.
