Not so veiled threats will get you a tuna sandwich…
I just had my lunch! Burp!
You cant sleep well next to a hungry tiger and hungry tigers cannot sleep at all when they know there is tuna in the kitchen.
Calvin’s expression in the third image.
I wouldn’t sleep next to a hungry tiger– Hobbes you’re on the floor!
The floor of some other room. Downstairs.
It’s realy not good to sleep beneath a hungry tiger. Mayonnaise is too fat! The expression of Calvin in the third panel is great!
Make sure you use a medium amount of salt but lots and lots of pepper.
why tuna ??? a tiger would prefer salami or jam!
Now I’m hungry….
LX013, I hope that you’re feeling better today, after that bad meal you had.
People who sleep with hungry tigers find themselves on the menu.
Hobbes (looking at a menu): “Let’s see. I’ll have the Calvin sandwich.”
Ahh this is one of my favorites
And what would Calvin do if HE were hungry? Make a wart hog sandwich?
Now that’s what you call self preservation
Love Calvin’s face in last two panels…
Good thinking Calvin, sleeping with a hungry tiger not such a good idea… feeding the tiger on the other hand, a great one… Isn’t that right Hobbes???
Onions, don’t forget the onions!
Your picture fits today! I felt in this way! After eating vegetables now for 5 days I feel better again, thank you! I must be more cautious in restaurants in future!
Hungry Tiger is a blues joint near me. Great wings
Hobbs stomach can’t growl; it’s filled with nothing but foam bits and cotton waste. Calvin is obviously going to eat Hobbs’ sandwich for him. Which, I suspect, was the plan all along.
You people are overlooking the obvious. How easy will it be sleeping next to a tiger with tuna breath?
Add some black olives please.
The expressions are priceless. I just love these guys!
Why do you wish you had a dog Calvin? Hobbes would just threaten to eat the dog instead of you.
Tigers’ll always fall for tuna… strip N° 1
I’ve learned not to sleep under a fastidious Siamese whose litterbox was not cleaned out last night.
I had a dream that it was raining, and woke up to see a black tail and beige butt sticking out above the windowsill.
The cat lived, but always had a clean litterbox at bedtime.
If Calvin had a dog, the dog would eat him….

I’m sure Calvin will have a sandwich too, so they’ll both have tuna breath and thus won’t be able to smell each other.
Hey, Calvin, Dick Tracy could use some tuna right now.
After the onions and black olives, I would like to suggest to add some tomatoos and mushrooms. That’s what we can call a “REAL TUNA SANDWHICH”.
Love Calvin’s face in the 3rd panel.
Glad I’m not Calvin. I never liked tuna - but I do like heavily peppered salmon.
c’mon hobbs, make your own sammich…. you are getting lazy
“Calvin & Rover” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Never would have worked. “Calvin & Spot”? Nope. “Calvin & Lassie”? Never.
It had to be a tiger.

It will be obviously better than being eaten by the tiger.
Haven’t made any in years, but back when I did used this combo of ingredients for tuna sandwiches: tuna (of course), chopped hard-boiled egg, grated cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, chopped pickle, plentiful black pepper and lots of mustard (not mayo).
They are kindda funny that way, if I remember correctly …
mwachowski - It goes back to the very first panels that Watterson did for this strip. Calvin finds this tiger and asks his dad what to feed it who, of course, doesn’t know. Turns out that Hobbes is partial to tuna sandwiches. If Hobbes didn’t / wouldn’t eat Moe, the school bully, I doubt that he’d eat Calvin - a smaller, less appealing target. Plus, it’s Calvin that provides a home and family for Hobbes. Why bite the hand that feeds you? Literally.
I love all the tuna sandwich gourmets that commented on this strip! I concur will just about all of them! Tuna, mayo, dried onions, pepper, sweet pickle relish or diced dill pickles, olives, mushrooms, a slice of tomato… WOW - now I’m really hungry for a tuna sandwich and didn’t bring one with me to work. Nuts!
Calvin’s response could have been to - grudgingly - make Hobbes’ tuna sandwich and then “serve it outside so that we don’t stink up the house and wake Mom & Dad” and, when Hobbes goes outside for his sandwich, lock the door behind him.
Sweet dreams, Calvin!
I seriously doubt if Hobbes would have eaten Calvin without making him take a bath first—not an easy task in itself.
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. – Sir Winston Churchill
and rightfully so…
Loved this strip! And all the comments. I want to try mushrooms and olives in tuna sometime. I agree with Hobbes. Some of the ready-made “spreads” are just a little tuna swimming in mayo. If I have nothng else on hand, I just use tuna, pickle relish, and enough mayo to make it hold together. With more planning I’ll included hard boiled eggs and celery.
EXCELLENT,MOST EXCELLENT !!
Black olives and dill pickles in my tuna salad, YUM! And fresh tomato if they are in season.
time to get a better sleeping partner
My tiger would get peanut butter and honey with a glass of milk
Of course my tiger is much older than Hobbes
Calvin is kind to Hobbes making him a sandwich late at night like that
A can of Tuna… 15 $.
Look on a scared kid’s face… priceless!
Some things u’d not wana do; but then a hungry tiger!
Love the tuna recipes. I’ll have to try them all!
