    The look on his face in the last panel is priceless. It’s how I feel every Monday morning on the way to work.

    Too ambitious, Calvin. What about an astronaut, a football champion or a Hollywood star?

    OK, I’ve heard of “Tiger Moms,” but she isn’t Hobbes’s mother.Is there such a thing as a “Calvin Mom?”That sounds like an even tougher matriarch.

    Our present troubles started when the parenting ‘experts’ started to tell the kids how the parents should be behaving.

    Back in Calvin’s day, some of them could even read!

    Yes, but letting a child watch things like what Calvin watches and talking about stuff like divorce and calling names and such causes a kid to go rotten

    Arguably one of the most achievable ambitions he’s ever voiced.

    Calvin’s thinking is, “Why waste my time gathering knowledge, when I intend to spend my entire life gathering food?”

    I love how Calvin often goes from self-assured and sitting in bed to tiny, grumpy, little kid on a sidewalk! :D

    Grooming for lice is not all it’s cracked up to be.

    Kids usually can’t think things through. Wait until you meet something else besides the occasional frog. Maybe a crocodile, or a BIG snake. Or, if ants decide they would like a bite out of your naked body. Not much fun then—especially if your mom is not around to take care of you.

    Oddly enough, considering when these strips were originally written, Calvin could actually become a star living that way – with a camera crew documenting his unscripted “real” life.

    Apparently, Parents don’t know what they’re talking about.

    The child is supposed to know everything and takes pride in telling the parents that they’re wrong.

    I love Calvin’s face in the last panel… Well it IS Monday.

    LOL xxx

    @Snoopy Fan: Yes, that strip with Snoopy surviving on berries has always been one of my favorites. A lot of great expressions in that one.

    @Snoopy Fan: Notice the supper dish behind Lucy’s legs in the last panel. Like Calvin, her legs are extremely short. The supper dish is in her left hand, but it can’t even hang down at her side. Bill Watterson would have read this Peanuts strip when he was ten years old, and you can see some of his inspiration from Charles Schulz in it. The Peanuts strip is full of funny expressions, just like yesterday’s Calvin and Hobbes.

    @Susan Newman: Calvin’s Mom made him go to school, and this is an example of good parenting. I know that in the past you have said that your own parents were unfair to you and you couldn’t please them. But if you are unfair to other parents so that they can never please you, aren’t you copying your own parents’ behavior? I feel bad when you call good parenting bad, because it seems like you are hurting yourself.

    Calvin should have pitched the idea to Dad, he may have gone along with it (minus the grooming for lice part)

    @Snoopy Fan: It would be interesting to know how many of the posters here discovered Peanuts or Calvin and Hobbes at a young age and collected the books. Charles Schulz’s father would buy four newspapers every Sunday, even though he had very little money, so that he and his son could read all of the comics together.
