Calvin and Hobbes

“Calvin from the outside.”: It ain’t pretty.

HAHA, because if people in real life acted like people in comic strips, that would be crazy! I’m gonna go eat a sandwich has big as my arm!

gee, and I thought “just enough time to do something lighthearted and relaxing before bed, like check crookedtimber one more time.” thanks ever so much.

This seems like a kind of potentially funny idea but really poorly executed.

I was convinced that C&H was going to end with something like #2 above. Not with the pills, but with Calvin suddenly realizing he liked Suzy, or something like that, and turning around and finding Hobbes remained a stuffed animal even after spoken to. Depressing. Thank goodness it didn’t really end that way.

Those Robot Chicken guys are dark, man. I hope they can sleep at night.

How revolting.

Vivian, modesto, winna… huh. So now we know who’s been keeping C&H in reruns for the last 10 years.

I thought it was hilarious.

Come on, people. Calvin lived in a fantasy world, and his best friend was a stuffed animal. Get a grip.

It looked like the kind of video Calvin might’ve dreamed up. That’s a good thing.

A parody should be funnier than the thing it’s parodying. This isn’t.

(Second post in a row.) I just read Trevor’s link up there. That’s a funny comic. It had me crying out, “no!” and covering my face. The animation just had me staring blankly.

Clearly, a lot of people are way too cool for this. :)

Funny, I thought the animation was charming but Trevor’s really got me down, what with it being the case and all. Though eventually Hobbes would of gotten hungry and eaten Calvin, so that’s basically o.k., there’s a whole lot of Calvin in Hobbes anyway. Hoping you are the same.

“Though eventually Hobbes would of gotten hungry and eaten Calvin, so that’s basically o.k., there’s a whole lot of Calvin in Hobbes anyway.”

Ok, now you see, that’s funny! Good one, aa. I like fungi’s comment in #9; the above video, while darkly humorous I suppose, doesn’t have the wicked, surreal, C&H-ish punch which aa’s would have had.

Are we really such a sick society that we would leave a troubled little boy’s mental illness untreated just for our entertainment?
