Grand Theft Toboggan.
Calvin sleighs them.
Another snowman catastrophe!
Being a snow man in Calvins world is not a secure occupation.
Suppose the puddle that you see is an ocean to the microscopic beings who live around it and have formed a civilization. Even though the puddle may dry up in one day (to us) for those microscopic beings that one day may be thousamds of years.
Calvin’s fantasy immediately brought up the image of the other great fantasy delusionate: Rick & Joanie’s son Jeff.
He was such a quiet kid, always kept to himself.
Frame 3 is just a visual trick. Calvin is actually walking on level ground, but Watterson tilted the frame to make it look like he’s walking up the hill. It’s the same trick they used on the old Batman TV show to make it look like Batman and Robin were Bat-roping up the side of a building.
Calvin has fun in the snow!!
As a “chauffer,” I went sledding with our church youth group at a popular family sledding hill. Going down head-first and seeing some young people in the path, tried slowing down by digging my hands in the snow ahead of me. This resulted in not much slowing and the snow spraying into my face, covering my glasses so I couldn’t see.
So, here’s the picture: overweight, middle-aged man flying down this hill, blinded by snow, head-first on a plastic sled. Children screaming, jumping out of the way as their short lives flash before their eyes.
Fortunately, all survived the run (including myself), the ride ending with man and sled parting ways after hitting a snow bank that would safely stop the average tot.
It proved to be a great amusement for the young people and my fellow chauffers/chaperones. Ah, Michigan… winter wonderland!
where is Hobbes..?
Made me think of this, one of my favorite C&H wallpapers
In a video montage this past weekend on AFV, an homage was played out by a brother and sister smashing into a bunch of little snowmen.
Then the aliens arrived.
Something like election day 2008…
A sledding we will go!A sledding we will go!High ho the Merrie-oh!A sledding we will go!
Where is Calvin perpetual partner is crime, Hobbes?
Time to ban toboggans?
Toboggan or not to boggan? That is the question.
And we all know Calvin’s answer.
Ha! Great Stuff! and @GretchensMom from yesterday, yes, I also LOVE the snowman strips – they are the best warped humor!
:)) Love al these “snowman series”!!!!
I’ve always loved that kid!
Gee…………….what’s gonna happen next?
I hope this doesn’t mean he’s a serial killer in development!
Most of us would be happy sliding down the slope. Calvin always takes it to the next level.
Does he bring little snowmen down the hill? I can see a little one in the sledge!
Aurora? Newtown? Us all? Do we have any guarantees? Are we ready? It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, because that is the end of every man, and the living takes it to heart. . . . The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning, while the mind of fools is in the house of pleasure. (Ecclesiastes 7:2–4)
Did he have his Ritlan today?
The only reason some people’s names end in “ski” is because they can’t spell toboggan.
aah, the childish joys of destruction!!!
Their day may have begun like any other but that is about to change…
Oh, the humanity!
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
@LX013….that is Calvin’s right foot – not a snowman.
Snow flew everywhere….
Cal-Zilla is comin! Fleeee!
This is the snowpeople’s fiscal cliff that Calvin is sitting on, waiting to come crashing down upon them!
An upcoming SyFy Original Movie…
Look out – it’s a toboggomonster coming!!
This one REALLY made me LOL today!!!!!!!!!! :-)
And some of the comments have been even funnier than the comic! Thanks, everyone, for making my day!!!!! :-)
He’s gonna get covered in snow.

Wait. Now, we finally know the origin of the Snow Goons!
(And the end, come to think of it.)
