    Metal slides were the best! Could get a bit hot, though.

    But metal slides and sand underfoot was the best–you could sand the slide down and get it really smooth and faster!

    And then there is the first appearance of Spaceman Spiff!


    And let’s hear it for the hideous scum beings of Planet Q-13! Frap rays! Malfunctioning Hyper-Freem Drives! Orbiting megazorks above planets!

    Umm you guys do realize this strip is over 25 years old right? I’m 35 and it was drawn when I was a kid. The last Calvin and Hobbes strip ever was drawn over ten years ago…

    I went on a metal slide once. They took it down soon after. Enough said.

    All the teachers probably think he’s a little nuts. They just don’t understand kids.
