Hahaha, oh dear.
Panel 1: nice, Susie. Panel 2: weirdest look I’ve seen on Calvin’’s face. Panel 3: mom has a point.
That snowman is rated R
Only one carrot per snowman Calvin.
Snowman is beautiful without anatomical correctness!!
I don’t think I’ve ever heard of an adult doing a critique of their kids’ snowmen. But…I guess in Calvin’s case…
OMG did he show man snowman.?With terrible Johnny and the twins .
Cucumber? More like a pickle, it’s cold out there!
So the psychotic zombie snowmen are tolerated but mom draws the line at a peaceable but fully equipped snowman? Strange priorities.
really never see… never have snow in our country…
flight attendant, fire fighter, spoke person…. snow human?
All baby dolls in Europe are anatomically correct. I remember the huge furore in the 70s in the US when they began to import “boy baby” dolls. Here, people know that all little kids know the difference between little boys and little girls, and it’s not about the colour of your booties.
our society is weird. it glorifies violence, but gets squeamish regarding sexuality.
How does Suzie get by with it?
There’s a story about missionaries in Africa giving the children baby dolls. Shortly thereafter the children would run from the missionaries. Seems that they had concluded that becoming Christian meant losing one’s genitals since none of the dolls had any.
HAHAHAahahaaaaaa! That is just SO funny. Simple, expected… But still SO funny!
Calvin built a 3 ball snowman!
Wonder how the first panel translated in Holland, where they’re called snow ‘dolls.’
This is one of the best Calvin and Hobbes. No doubt about it.
Watterson’s “snow people” strips are some of his best.
The state of New Jersey one time put out a visitor’s bureau pamplet with a picture of a snowman on the front cover. Unbeknowst to the photographer and the editors, the snowman was similar to Calvin’s.
Gonna need two carrots for this one…
I tried to get a link, but read For Better or For Worse 2001-12-15It’s hilarious where this Calvin and Hobbes could be in 10 years or so.
2 grapes and a baby carrot?
It’s ok for Susie, but not Calvin??
The BIGOT strikes again…
REALLLLLY!!?? What the hell does that have to do with anything with this or any comic? Find a different forum.
Mom: the spoiler.
Mom did stipulate “front yard” which gives Calvin a open door for other options !!!!
Calvin is just trying to keep ‘abreast’ with Susie.
She got a snowjob.
Weird look on Calvin in panel 2.
I can feel with Mom, I can freeze with her! It’s drawn so well, you can imagine freezing!
We have so much snow, so much we hadn’t for a long time, 50 cm!!
You mean snow men have (s)noballs? That doesn’t sound anatomically correct, more like politically correct!
One merely means that there is a very disturbed person around. The other can get you arrested with obscenity charges.
Just make him look SMARTER than the snow woman.
it’s cold. 2 grapes and a Vienna Sausage.
Uh…although not treated specifically in the comic strip, I doubt that Mom would have tolerated the zombie snowmen any better…the “gag” just didn’t get that far with the zombies.
Funny how everyone commenting above assumes Mom’s objection in this strip is about cucumbers and carrots…couldn’t it have been about masculine shoulders and pecs? Susie’s take on the snowwoman was to add a (modest) bust and hairdo…. But, of course, I jest ! Calvin would ALWAYS escalate the matter! That is, assuming as a six- or seven-year-old, Calvin knows enough about human anatomy…. We make lots of adult assumptions about this character as it is….
Back in classical times, herms were boundary stones, and in honor of Hermes, god of boundaries, they had a head and a phallus…
Just put a thong on the snowman, Calvin….
Calvins snowman looks to be very proud of his anatomic.
My brothers and I made anatomically correct snowman and woman when we were young. My mom was not happy.
This one is great and I’ve never seen it before. Censors at work? I love the stance of the snowman — “Yoo-Hoo!”
It’s not ALL “religious-based.” “Religious” people are not the only ones who believe in modesty. And clothing has usually had the dual purpose of environmental comfort and protection.
No new strip today again? I look like Calvin in the second panel!!
When I was young, I was too beautiful and now I am old and thick and I prefer to hide everfything behind clothes!
Why are all updates late today?
Here it is almost 2 am MST on Friday morning and no Calvin. What gives??
the whole site appears to be dead—no new comics at all as far as i could find.
I have sent a message to GoComics about the lack of updates on the website. None of the strips I look at have updated. Now four and a quarter hours past their update time.
Check Snow woman’s purse. You might find Snowman’s balls there.
What’s going on here? This was yesterday strip(Jan. 17, 2013. Today is Jan. 18, 2013!!
It needs a couple of snow balls.
Hobbes had been lazy and selfish!!
how does he get the sticks?
