At ease men.
I wish I had thought of this when I was a kid.
I thinks it speaks to your position as head of the household, Dad…
I hope Calvin can keep ‘em under control! I’d hate to see the Snow Goons return!
At least the Imperial Guard is still loyal.
We who are about to melt, salute you…
All hail to the chief!!
Why dad hate this?
Hail & farewell!
You may as well inspect the troops while you’re at it.
I’d do that for myself.Forget waiting for a kid to do it.
Where does Calvin get all the snow for all the snowmen?
I would have liked that kind of greeting.
Where does he get all that snow?
Yes, yes, Dad hates this!I don’t know why, but he hates it!
i never could build a snowman that looked like a “snowman”. i’m impressed that he could build a whole row of them.
that little Calvin sure has a lot of stamina… I tried to do 5 snowmen(the whole family) and only got to 4!
I love Calvin’s snow art. Give that boy an NEA grant!
The kid has ingenuity, you gotta give him that.
Dad thinks it ‘snow’ good!
He should have put them in front of a local police station. The police would be thrilled and they’d call his dad to ‘thank’ him.
i also think that it’s amazing where calvin get’s all that snow. there aren’t any spots of grass showing on the whole lawn. another question I have—how does he lift up the middle section and the head to get them in the right place when he’s barely as tall as the lowest section?
Funny funny funny!
Awwwwwwww! That’s adorable.
Yo dad, thats what happens when you make Calvin do his homework.
Calvin isn’t good at routine tasks, but for a special message like this one, he’s all dedication.
Love it. I would also love to live in a place that gets enough snow to do this!!!
doesn’t Calvin have an “attention” deficit disorder?
calvin is awesome and funny
If only Calvin could play “Hail to the Chief” for him as he passes the troops in review.
My Dad would have had me working in a mill or some field real young if at 5 yrs old I could have figured how to lift that snow to make such beautiful snowmen,but thats why I love Calvin.
I’d like to see Calvin having his snowmen doing the “PledgeOf Allgiance” out by the flagpole in the front yard. That would be great too! Calvin builds the best snowmen I’ve ever seen…
Making all those snow goons made me realize that Calvin has the energy level of Hoover Dam…
I think his dad feels he’s being mocked.
I can’t imagine why Calvin’s dad would hate this. After all . . . he’s being given a 6-snowman-salute!!!!! That’s real respect if you ask me!
This was a great strip, and there were a lot of really funny comments today.@Commentator explained todays strip the best.Regarding the whole “Where did Calvin get all that snow” question, think of it as “Comic strip physics” or simply, Calvin didn’t build all those snowmen, Bill Watterson drew them.
I know why Dad hates that!! He doesn’t like being embarrassed OR he doesn’t like it to look like he is a snowman army trainer.
A sign of respect from Calvin is rare enough. Take it as it looks, rather than as it was intended!
“Men, I’ve called you here for a very important mission. I know what I am asking you to do is dangerous… maybe even suicidal. But your courage and your sacrifice will be long remembered. More importantly, I will be forever in your debt for your contribution to the demise of he whom I call ‘son’.”
Hey folks, it’s a comic strip,and a very good one. why the insidious and stupid comments. Get some kind of life!
They look alright to me Dogsniff! :-)
Such industry… and it goes unappreciated…
It’s okay, Calvin’s dad… because I LOVE IT!
That’s why he does it!!!!
If you like Calvin’s snowmen, search YouTube for “A Very Calvin and Hobbes Christmas”. Trust me, you’ll love it- I don’t know how the guy did it!
he,s creative with the snow job
KNEEL…AIM….FIRE AT DAD!!!
