I’ve always been a big fan of cartoons, from the homely and hilarious, to the provocative and poignant. One of the ones I used to read regularly was Calvin and Hobbes, the tales of a mischievous young boy and his tiger friend that only Calvin can see. They even made a previous line(s) of the day. Here are eight of my favourites. Which ones stand out to you? And if I’ve swayed you, you’ll find more here.
You probably weren’t a follower of my blog when my 18 year old cat passed away a couple months ago, but his name was Hobbes. I loved Calvin and Hobbes. 🙂
Sorry to hear. If he was even half as exciting as his name, he;d have left a bundle of great times 🙂
He was! http://www.critters.com/main.php?action=view&mem_id=10739&logoff=truehttp:// lol
I had a look. What an amazing sounding cat. Emma too. I guess that pets choose you too sometimes 🙂
I’m at the carwash lol. All the moving has made our car so dusty! I’m glad you checked him out. He was the best kitty and I think you’re right. They chose me 🙂
Love this comic strip. We have several of the Calvin and Hobbes collections on our shelf. 🙂
Such a great cartoon 🙂 Really beings back a lot of memories.
I have all of the collections of C&H 🙂
I like the breakfast in bed one, because it shows he tries his best. I love the last one, because that is so much like my kid, then and now.
Ha. How good are your kitchen skills?
On par with Calvin, unfortunately LOL
Lovely! Calvin & Hobbes are my favourites 🙂 Think I might have a look at an album later on!
I might well have to do another one. So many funny ones 🙂
Hahahahha! I love Calvin & Hobbes!
Which was your fave?

Ha! I love the conversations with his dad too, especially the ‘dad polls’.
A day can really slip by you when you’re avoiding what you need to.
Hah. Now that’s classic. (Oh and I always loved Calvin and Hobbs, too.)
Never a truer word spoken haha
Another blast from the past – thank you, Alex 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
