    Why you asked Calvin? Several schools of thought suggested: 1.Instinctual 2.Genetic 3.Comfort Ancestral animals (usually dogs), to knockdown and flatten the grass, to check territory and to quickly assess overall safety, they turn around 3 times before lying down.

    For Hobbes whose loyalty is in question, remember this:

    “He who does not feel his friends to be world of him, does not deserve the world should hear of him” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), German Playwright

    The shortest route to the floor is through Hobbes stomach…

    A cat (or in this case Tiger) is not man’s best friend.

    Hobbes, your price is way to low. I wouldn’t do it unless I heard shrimp was on the menu.

    Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠.

    I used to keep a flashlight under my pillow at night when I was a kid to check under the bed when I had to get up during the night. I had to put my hand down there to grab my slippers and I was afraid a monster would grab it and pull me underneath.

    Calvin should be OK, they only offered Hobbes salmon. If it had been tuna though….

    Reminds me of the very first C&H strip, wherein Calvin catches Hobbes with a tuna sandwich trap.

    I love how the balloon around the monster’s words is drawn. It perfectly suggests the slippery, slimy dripping dialogue that we are expected to imagine it’s voice to sound like.

    To a dog, you’re a friend. To a cat, you’re staff.

    If you die in your sleep, your cat will eat you. Unless of course he can trade you for something tastier!

    Calvin probably needs to invest in one of those Gary Larson Monster Snorkels (tm).

    2nd panel 2nd row: I imagine in my mind the slimy monster with voice like a characer selling rolex watches in an alleyway “psst, hey kid” then Calvin & Hobbes wide eyed expressions jolted from previous panels slumber in unison gasping - “MONSTERS!” - - Priceless - - Watterson always the comic genius! I NEVER EVER TIRE OF THESE TWO - Thank you - thank you for the gift of Calvin & Hobbes !!!

    To sleep: perchance to dream: aye, there’s the rub; For in that sleep of (salmon) what dreams may come

    Be careful Hobbes, the Monsters under the bed never tell the truth. The salmon may not even exist let alone be fresh. And after Calvin they may come for you.

    Apologies to the Bard.

    I used JUMP out of my bed so the monsters couldn’t grab me if I got up to go to the bathroom. And jump back when I came back! Hideous things! Bill Cosby had the solution with covers.

    When I was a kid, a nightlight every night plugged in at an electrical outlet near the floor illuminated underneath the bed to make sure there were no monsters under it to grab my feet and pull me under whenever I had to get up to go to the bathroom!

    I kept a pretend bear under my bed for about 2 years to take care of any monsters and to frighten anyone who wanted to climb in my bedroom window on the second floor. That bear was a lifesaver for sure! : )

    The monsters under the bed live on fear. You know how wasps and dogs smell fear? That’s what the monsters eat. When you no longer believe in them, they try scary dreams, usually during puberty, anything for a jolt of fear. Those who are perpetual scaredy cats? always have a monster or two under the bed. It does them no good to eat you, or to try to eat you. You are indigestible to the monster under the bed. They want your fear. When they are in danger of starving, they move on. Joyfull laughter is like kryptonite to them. Love is like boogers, gross to them.

    ‘Laugh, Love, Live’ and monsters get gone!

    Terrible imagination from Calvin. Imagining his best buddy would turn traitor on him.
