@Snoopy Fan: Notice the supper dish behind Lucy’s legs in the last panel. Like Calvin, her legs are extremely short. The supper dish is in her left hand, but it can’t even hang down at her side. Bill Watterson would have read this Peanuts strip when he was ten years old, and you can see some of his inspiration from Charles Schulz in it. The Peanuts strip is full of funny expressions, just like yesterday’s Calvin and Hobbes.
