Calvin and Hobbes comics were written by cartoonist Bill Watterson. The comic strip ran from November 18, 1985 up to December 31, 1995. It is about the humorous antics of Calvin, a six-year-old adventurous boy who signifies mischievous, cute, and surprisingly intelligent kids – and Hobbes, a sarcastic stuffed tiger who’s inanimate to all other people except him.
Unlike most cartoons, Calvin and Hobbes are meant primarily for adults than kids. It has become popular because of its amazingly written dialogues that deal with different socio-political and economic issues from education and religion up to intrapersonal subject matters. Reading Calvin and Hobbes will definitely make you reflect on yourself and the society you are in.
Calvin: Do you believe in the Devil? You know, a supreme evil being dedicated to the temptation, corruption, and destruction of man?
Hobbes: I’m not sure man needs the help.
Calvin: You just can’t talk to animals about these things.
However, because of these amazingly written copies, the cartoon and art itself is most of the time overlooked. If we would examine a little closer, most of these comic designs are not only good for reading but also for expression of simple truths and messages like contentment, friendship, adventure, fun, and love – truly postcard and greeting card moments that need not a copy.
Let’s look at these 20 Calvin and Hobbes cartoons and understand simple values and concepts that in essence, is the very center of the Calvin and Hobbes comics.
