Wow, I’m second! Love Calvin’s expressions in 3 & 5.
Nice Try Calvin..!!!
Calvin’s a real ball of fire!
Your rights are right now restricted to being left in the bedroom.
Start reading, Mom!
Does the Miranda ruling apply to juveniles? Anyone know?
You have the right to march that little fanny back to bed mister! Failure to meet this right will be met with dire consequences.
Good morning, vardeman62.
Not in this instance, rayaninna. It only applies when one is being arrested, not when one is being sent to bed.
Never been read the Calvin Rights!
If Calvin knows that his mom has to read him the rights, then he must also know his rights.
But, moms have their own rules. Better follow them Calvin.
That’s right, let’s get it straight Mom!
He might get further by saying she forgot to read him a story. But then, reading Calvin his “rights” is perhaps more appropriate.
Careful Mom, a head lock might be considered child abuse in some states.
This is Calvin’s World… Mum has to comply :-))

I think as far as Calvin is concerned, they are one and the same thing.
Calvin hasn’t realized yet that he lives in an absolute dictatorship called Momland. Martial law applies and rights don’t exist.
we used to read our kids a story called “Bedtime for Francis”…Calvin reminded me of that one.
Do terrorists get read their rights?
Good morning Marg!
Good morning Fran and Kizzzy!
You have the right to stay silent and stay in bed Calvin. Any other rights at bedtime are strictly mythical.

The cowards should be shot.
Calvin’s 6. 6-year olds have no rights in any house.
Mom better nice to Calvin. He’ll be picking her nursing home some day.
rayannina for teenagers they don’t go to bed especially during summer until the sun comes up when there is no school. Yes teenagers do get the rights read to them when being arrested for a crime then searched for illegal contraband that happens allot.
Hi Mike Firesmith.
I will read you your rights just after you feel my left grab your collar and yank you off your tiny little feet.
According to Calvin, his ‘rights’ allow him to do wrongs.
“A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty “Hi-yo, Silver!””
All Calvin has (in panel one) is the cloud of dust. It’s no wonder he got caught. Where is the transmogrifier when Calvin needs it?
rayannina – Miranda applies to juvenile. At least to those arrested for crimes. However, Miranda applies to what is considered permissible government behavior, not to parental discipline.
From the opera: Calvin Miranda, then?
oh, wait, that STOPS singing, doesn’t it?
Calvin, you have the right to start running to your bedroom as I break out the belt that will be used to spank you for disrespect and disobedience!
I absolutely love the way Watterson draws Calvin’s expressions!
You have the right to remain silent.
The right to remain silent, yes… the ability???
calvin, you lost your rights when you took roselyns papers a few weeks ago
Calvin’s right on this one. Mom didn’t read him the paper that says if you don’t do this, this happens.
Poor Calvin…still hasn’t realized children have no rights except those expressly given them by their parents!
You have the right to remain silant (& in bed). You (don not have a right to spreak an attorny, nor to have him present durring your spanking. If you choose to keep talking you will loose your privlage to play outside all week long.
Do you understand these rights as I have explained them to you (again)??
NOW GO TO BED!!!
Why do you all insist on talking to Calvin as if he has the ability to hear you?
Calvin has the right to have his rear end tanned and I’d bet that is what a sixth frame would show, judging by his mother’s expression in the fifth frame.
She’s going to read you your death rights. You know Mom has no patience or imagination.
While there seem to be indications here of Calvin’s future employment as a lawyer, at the moment he needs his present lawyer (Hobbes) to represent him before the court of MOM as she prepares to read him the Riot Act….
When I was his age, I didn’t have any rights – especially where bedtime was concerned and they would have put me to bed at 2:00 in the afternoon if they could. I swear my bedtime got earlier as I got older.
you have to give it to him,he’s one brave little monster.
German Moms read you your Reichs. .
If he’s not careful, Calvin will be read his last rites!
You have the right to remain silent and go to bed. If you refuse these rights, your grounded, Mister.
Calvin, you are lucky mom didn’t give you some of her Rights, and a couple of lefts… with that look on your face, you still might get em.
“I’ll give ya rights ya little !#!!%!#!!” SMACK!
Probably why he talks to his stuffed animal.
The creepy, little, spike-haired, smarty pants!
That’s right I said “SMARTY PANTS!”
Cause that’s how I roll!
