    Hobbes, then you know why Calvin can’t explain it.

    Well maybe your grades could be a f.

    Oh well, at least a “D” is better than a “F”…however, Calvin’s imagination rates an “A+” ;)

    The low grade means his thinking is free of details so the explanation can be more inspired.

    Anything more involved than 2+2=5, you.ve lost me.

    It doesn’t explain why Hobbes asked, however. Sigh.

    I got an A, but I forgot it again!

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

    Mrs. Wormwood is to be blamed for the D grade. How can a simple earthling comprehend Calvin’s mathematical genius?

    Don’t try to explain time travel. It’ll just ruin all those stories, Star Treks, etc.

    Danae is time traveling today, too. It’d be great if she and Calvin actually met in prehistoric times.

    It depends on what your definition of math is

    Today’s Calvin and Hobbes is from 1990. Here is a Red and Rover strip from 2011 that may have been inspired by Calvin and Hobbes. On the other hand, Red and Rover is set in the 1960s, so perhaps it inspired Calvin and Hobbes. On the other hand, today Calvin and Hobbes are traveling back before the 1960s, so perhaps they inspired Red and Rover.

    On the other hand, here is a Red and Rover strip that is timeless:

    In the Red and Rover astronaut strip above, notice how Brian Basset modifies the shapes and sizes of the panels while working within the constraints of the space that he is allowed. This is like Bill Watterson’s later Calvin and Hobbes strips.

    Well, actually, Bill Watterson’s strips were earlier than Red and Rover. Even his later strips were earlier. So this is like Bill Watterson’s later earlier Calvin and Hobbes strips.

    Time can be a confusing thing, at times.

    What didn’t he get a “D” in?
