    Now all you have to do Calvin is to convince Mom that her financial gift (!) will not be detrimental in the short run and disastrous in the long run… ;)

    Pretty impressive, in light of his scholastic behaviour, that Calvin actually knows even three of the simple machines, especially considering he’s only in first grade.

    Without your own money you have to appeal to others to fund your work. Or you don’t get beyond the drawings.

    Have you noticed how advanced the school Calvin goes too? Like high school with a bit of college thrown in.

    Mom will want to see some results first, Junior.

    This was way before Kickstarter.

    Like Junior Bear (Stan Freberg) in Chuck Jones’ “A Bear for Punishment:” “I am a GOOD speller! C-A-T, dog! D-O-G… Rhode Island!”

    It’s good that Calvin understands simple machines. He will need a lot of leverage with his Mom, who may not be inclined to support him.



    Hobbes also has some experience with leverage. Here is a very early Calvin and Hobbes strip:
