    While I can recognize a 1950-60 era “alternate automobile entry device” when I see one, I totally agree with Richard S. Russell’s general assessment.

    Anthropology is a difficult science which requires a little bit of art.

    He’ll do great when he grows up and has to play ‘creative thinking’ games as part of management training. ‘Think of 10 uses, other than hanging clothes, for a clothes hanger.’ – that’ll be a doddle for his unconstrained mind.

    @SUSAN NEWMANHi SusanTwo Sundays ago, you mentioned the missing “zoom” function for the Sunday Calvin and Hobbes strips. Yesterday’s strip has the zoom function working, so hopefully it will work on Sundays from now on. GoComics said they couldn’t use the zoom function previously because the Sunday images were low resolution, but that they are gradually adding high resolution to more strips.(For Puddleglum: …….the Sunday images were of low resolution……..)

    Some day when you lock yourself out of your car, Calvin, you’ll need one of those. The wire coat hanger is a universal tool.

    i agree with JazzyBella! Calvin had to “act” incredibly dumb to be the straight man for Hobbes’ clever rejoinder.

    Hi Hobbes,I’ll take your word for it. You know more of low resolution than I do! But it does seem that much usage of grammar is of low resolution these days “As Time Goes By”.

    Yesterday Calvin and Hobbes couldn’t break the sound barrier by running on the ground, but today Hobbes ‘lowered the (sonic) boom’ on Calvin with his comment.

    Joan Crawford, if I ever catch you using that thing on your daughter’s backside, I’ll take if from you and teach you a NEW way to hang clothes!

    I never thought there was a connection between a rusty clothes hanger and the clothes that dont fit on the door hooks,that are on the floor.

    I saw what looked like an ancient children’s toy in an exhibit labeled as being ‘probably used in religious ceremonies’‘. It cracked me up — it was probably just Suzy’s favorite doll.

    It is possible to put clothes rods low enough for children to reach them.

    Calvin and Hobbes, just “hanging around” to get the hang of it. Wait ’til they experience surfing and the meaning of “hang time” …..

    I love Calvin’s unique childish imagination. I think that many great adult minds still have it. It reminds me of the famous photograph of Albert Einstein riding a bike.

    Archeologists have always had a tendancy to label anything as being religious if they couldn’t explain a use for it. Think- what item is common today that could survive for thousands of years? The TV picture tubes now going to the landfills could survive for thousands of years by being encased in glass. A future archeologist could dig one up (from a home where it had been in use) and conclude that it was a religious item since they could see no practical use for it, Assume a sudden calamity that buried a number of homes. As they find these, and note skeletal remains, they could conclude that CRUEL parents FORCED their kids to stare at these icons for endless hours!

    Actually, I’ve received 3 responses from someone at GoComics in the past.


    Two were for some problems I was having with the site (which they helped me solve) and one was for two suggestions I made: one was for adding one of my favorite comics, “Retail”, to the list and the other was to please give us the “Edit” button back (for that one, I just received a standard “Thanks for your suggestions/feedback” robo-response. I’m still hoping for “Retail” someday.).


    I did once suggest they add “Peanuts” to the list and while I never received anything back for that suggestion, “Peanuts” was later added so for that, I’m happy.

    doesn’t Calvin always wear the same clothes anyway, so why would he need a hanger??

    The comment was not intended to be anti- any religion, it’s just that when archeologists can’t find any other explanation, they assume it had a religious significance.
