An animated series would have been awesome :D
But it would really have forced Watterson against his anti-commercialism deal in the end I guess :/
I mean look at the Simpsons they are in NO way as personal and dear to anyone like Calvin and Hobbes are, because their name and logo and mottos are on everything! They have marketed literally everything!
Truly Watterson is a great man with respect for personal value and proves that not everyone will give up their dignity for money.
Watterson, in my book, you are one of the greats, and a definite role model for artists and writers alike!
