But will it be daring enough?
Is Coach John visiting from Big Nate?
That’s a good question.
I think coach never met a donut he didn’t like. An example of an instructor of ‘do as I say, not as I do’.
Keep your chin up, little guy!
I don’t think Houdini could get out of this one …
Give it a try Calvin…you might get stronger and then you can beat up Moe.
Yeah, why is it that gym teachers were always overweight, and shop teachers were always missing part of a finger?
Just doesn’t seem like the right people to be teaching fitness and shop safety to me…
None of my gym instructors looked like that. Though there was one who turned beet-red any time he demonstrated anything,
No comment space man spiff….
Calvin is in a lot better shape than the jock – probably more mature too.
I don’t remember a “gym” class in elementary school. We just had recess and played on the playground.
The only thing I was good at was Trampolining…
I KNOW it’s easy but I could do different moves on it.
I would say the second one.
Kelly: And now for one of our ingenious escapes.Scott: If only the door weren’t locked.
If Calvin could pull this off, he wouldn’t have to do it anymore; it would be broken!
kinda reminds me of how i felt about gym when i was a kid.
The gym instructor might do better at teaching sumo-wrestling.
If Calvin jumps high enough, he could ‘pass the bar’. That might help him to escape!
As I recall, all my gym instructors were in pretty good shape and my shop teachers had all their fingers.
He has more chins than a China Town phone book.
How’s Calvin supposed to reach that bar? The one time he jumped that high, he left his skin behind.…Ever notice that the rare one-timers in C&H are more caricatured on average? I’m thinking of the movie ticket lady as well.
Lol… I once had a gym instructor who always wore shorts, no matter how cold it was. She always told us, “The day I wear pants is the day you can say it’s cold.”
That’s kind of how I look at the treadmill at the Y.Only there’s no escape.
Hobbs in the getaway car-ready to drive!
Love the 400-pound gym instructor
I wonder if the proportions of the gym instructor originate in Calvin’s active imagination the same way Space Frog does.
I’m still laughing..
Uh oh…I feel another trip to the principals office coming on.
Go ahead…can you please give us a demo, Coach?
We had a muscle bound coach come up from NYC to our small upstate HS and taught us tumbling, which was humbling.
Un-fond memories of my gym classes. Miraculously, however, I was able to get out of the most horrifying “exercises.” Sometimes.
No comment from me here today? I must change this!
LOL! We’re rooting for ya Spaceman Spiff! :-)
Bill Watterson graduated from Chagrin Falls High School. That gym teacher is based on Coach Quisenberry, although he wasn’t fat. The face is that of “coach”, a former marine sargent. Every once in a while there are subtle references to people and places in Chagrin. Its fun to be able to recognize them.
The chin-up bar is so high and Calvin is so short. How exactly is the boy supposed to “get on it”???
Time to power up the spaceship and get on down the line….
coach has more chins than the Bejing DEX book.
That gym instructor must have been in the Malomars.
Calvin daydreams too much, I doubt he will be able to do even 1 chin- up!
I’d love to see the gym teacher demonstrate with a few chin-ups.
get on it
When was the last time that gym instructor passed gym or a physical?
I got a funny respond for Calvin for this one. You know how the P.E teacher is chubby?Calvin should say “how do you do it?Can you do some for us so we know how to do it?”
When I look at the instructor, it reminds me of a cop I sawa couple months back and me thinking “How the heck couldhe EVER catch a criminal?” He was kind of a 5X5. Totallyridiculous for a policeman. :)
That guy just doesn’t look qualified for the job. I mean, can he do at least 20 chin ups.
