Shouldn’t it be Calvinisthenics ?
Big trouble behind the door.
Yeah, it was best that you did take the job alright.
Move over Dick Tracy, there’s a new Detective PI in town.
Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠.
phrenology,n. study that infers personal characteristic from the shape of the skull.
I hate when a 6 year old kid is smarter than me.
A detectiv snooper!
Dont ask her for money up front,she looks a little up set.
Crack the case then present her with the bill,or not.
The name’s Joe Cop and I’m a Friday. Errrr.
I guess he didn’t get the cost of living raise in his allowance this year either!
From the LCARS aboard any UFP starship:
Calvin “Stupendous Man” Hobbes was the inventor of the Terran version of the holosuite. His immensity of imagination and his versatility of hand lent very well to the creation of this beloved piece of technology…
Corrupt probation officers who take money? When Calvin escapes into fantasy, he goes a long way.

uh-oo Mom looks REALLY mad
@ironclad2001. It has always been my impression that the vocabulary is one way that Watterson let his readers know how smart Calvin was (is). And the flights of fantasy - like today - gave us a window into C’s marvelous imagination. A genius for sure! But not a quiet, nerdy, proper little whiz kid - a wild and crazy genius with all of that brain power and imagination trapped in a 6-year old’s body! :-)
Reality crushing enthusiasm…
Too true, Florchi – Calvin’s very intelligent. Often, that’s half his problem …
Looking forward to more Chauvin noir ..
Go get em’, Tracer Bullet!
Looks like the Tall Brunette is ready to give him a few more lumps with her blunt (left) instrument!
Maybe she wanted a girl?
At least she’s not carrying a blunt instrument.
I agree with Ironclad.
I hear Tracer Bullet is replacing Marv in the next Sin City movie…
Calvin you did it again your in trouble now.
Mom, that is definately not your best look!
Awesome..! That sure takes me back to the pre-PC days when comic strip kids could still smoke and drink. ;)
Perhaps Calvin did it not and it was someone else?
With a case for him? It looks more like she’s about to DO a job ON him.
she stuck two 38s in my back ,<she also had a gun!
“…pays the Bills…” ha ha ha ha
I also enjoyed the “two Bills” he has to pay…
And I thought for sure the dame in his life would be Susie or some other “annoying girl”! I wonder though- who done it?
Made him an offer he can’t refuse.
I’m a little worried about that magnum bottle he keeps in his desk. A little too young for that. Actually, a little too young for the other magnum as well. 6 years old and already on probation and gambling!!!
Calvin Sin City-wonderful.
Calvin’s been heavily influenced by some advanced reading material – I didn’t get into my dad’s Mickey Spillane collection until I was at least 13.
I called this one right flat on the money in my post yesterday. Boy, does she look like my mother looked, all too often. Love the clever puns in the previous panel - absolutely marvelous monologue - great stuff, especially Calvin’s name for his detective doppleganger - Tracer bullet = genius….
Those Tracer Bullet storylines are awesome! I love the artwork and his monologues!
Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen Calvin’s Mom this mad before … and I’ve seen her pretty (darn) mad!
TimeWeaver: I absolutely love your “Casablanca” reference! It’s one of my favorite old-time movies.
your in trouble
MOTHER KNOWS BEST or was that “FATHER KNOWS BEST” I don’t know………………..
@Florchi, “a genius trapped in a 6 year old body”
Now that’s good, I don’t know what Calvin is on, but I would
like to buy some :-):-)
The imagination can be a dangerous outlet! Go Calvin!
Tracer had a bottle. Mom is really mad and Calvin is losing something from his right hand like the back of a liquor bottle. You don’t suppose he got into the wet bar?
A 6yo who knows what phrenology is?
OMG! Not only does he have that gun on his desk in the second panel, he’s pouring himself a drink in the third, and SMOKING A CIGARETTE in the first.
I should change my name to Bill so people start paying me.
