Just go for the gusto.
Not today, today I’ll have fun and do, what I want to do!
Spaceman Spiff certainly will find something funny!
Have a nice day everybody… after having a good sleep!
Spaceman Spiff…………….not too far off from reality……
the Shuttle just docked with the space station a bit ago.
Yeah, Calvin. Please listen to Hobbes
Oh, oh, I have a bad feeling about what mom’s going to think of this little shenanigan.
Calv likes Schlitz?
If I was his Mom, I would say, “go for it!”
I think Hobbes is right…..
You may get into trouble!
I suggest you go for the gumbo instead, my friend. :)
Don’t be a killjoy, Hobbes!
Schlitz is the kind of gusto I can do without and Mom’s wrath is the kind of gusto Calvin can do without.
Have no fear Hobbes, Mom will straighten him out.
Well; since Calvins is going to be immortalized on a postage stamp, I say go for it Calvin. Make us proud.
Spacemen don’t go to school. A space outfit is all you need.
Go for it Calvin. You’re the class hero. You make skool kool for everyone.
Calvin’s probely going to end up smuggling that outfit to school in his bag anyway.
@Deanna175 I see that Calvin’s going to be on a postage stamp. The others in the series put him in good company…..I was surprised to see that Peanuts was not among the cartoons though….
Calvin on a postage stamp? On which one?
Don’t be judgmental. If it gets him off to school just go for it.
In July the post office will be releasing a “comic strips” series in the stamps, and guess who is there? Yep. Unfortunately, there is only one stamp of Calvin and Hobbes makin funny faces for the camera.
They (C & H) shouls have a complete plate of 20 satmps, IMHO.
It takes an uncommon mind to think in uncommon ways, Calvin.
Do not listen to Hobbes.
You do not want to be a conformist, do you , Calvin?
bleeep the consequences, go for it!!
@witewater, The Peanuts gang have already been on stamps.
If my son had asked my permission every time he planned to go for gusto, he would have been in a lot less trouble. And pain.
On the other hand, his life would have been pretty boring.
Watch his mom pwn him
A cape, helmet and goggles always transforms any outfit.
What would it be with creating snowmen or sliding down death valley or throwing snowballs on Susi!
One of the best
Spaceman Spiff doesn’t ask—he ACTS.
CALVIN! A Mans… Boy!
i heard a rumor about this strip, it’s the legendary noodle incident.
No need to mention it to mom….the school will be calling her about it within the hour.
Is Calvin planning to go to school in his cape and goggles? Or does Spaceman Spiff go flyin off on adventures that do not include school at all?
Spiff’s in school. No doubt about it….. Calvin’s a space cadet
Cartoon characters on stamps? What other characters will be on stamps? Garfield? I will have to get someone from the states to send them to me.
Last year here in SC KS we got a good view of the space shuttle and ship in orbit. The local news said it would be close and last only 5 min view time so true.
I wonder if Calvin just planing his own adventure and mom gets a call from school saying he never showed up. And Calvin rides school bus.
has someone seen the strip where c&h drew a map of “mount vertigo “? It was “operation Kapow”
kab2rb, I’ve heard of “NOLA” and “NY, NY”, but what’s “SC KS”? I thought Sioux City was in a Dakota or something. “Small City, Kansas”?
Check out the time when the shuttle departs the station. If you’re lucky, and a clear sky, you can see both in orbit, just a little bit away from each other.
You can find the times on www.spaceflight.NASA.gov
That will take you to the home page, and you can navigate from there to see the sightings from your town
Calvin & Hobbes uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy!! Woot!
If it is not Saturday or Sunday, Calvin is in for a very rude
awakening about what he plans for the day!!!
Check out the date on the strip. Since when do kids go to school during the week between Christmas and the New Year?
The best things in life are all GUSTO!
There has been days in school and after school years that I felt that way but I am a slave to food shelter and family .But Calvin helps me dream of such freedom we have as children
Reminds me of running away from home as a little kid. Mom never worried–I didn’t have permission to cross the street, so I couldn’t get very far…
Daring little tyke, isn’t he.
DO IT CALVIN! DO IT ALL THE WAY!
It’s going to be a really SPIFFY day for everyone.
God, I love him.
Schlitz had about as much success with Gusto as Calvin is about to.
If you ran away, how could you know it was safe to return?
“To infinity and beyond!”
Calvin motivates me.
Look at the date. Isn’t it still Christmas vacation?
BEER!?!? Why are they talking BEER!?!?
I think it was Marg’s initial remark about going for the gusto.
Cool, I don’t like beer so was lost.
Not like beer? You just need to work a little harder at it!
