They are short at my age to.
Sommer with Hobbes are best!
Time flies when you’re having fun, Calvin. Perhaps you’ll notice the diff when Mom takes you to the doctor and dentist for pre-enrollment checkups….
I Love how ‘’bushy" Hobbes’ tail gets as they flee the snake!
That was not Susie getting the water balloon. A new enemy Calvin?
I have vague memories of having unlimited energy like that.
The ultimate biography of Calvin?
Love you both……….
And in this insane, zero-tolerance world we live in, a kid who put out a “SUICIDE DRINK” placard today would be whisked off by child services in eleven seconds flat. (sighs) I hate to admit that I miss the 80s.
Summer days are gone in a flash.
Seems like a packed day.
Is that Calvinball they’re playing at the right end of the second row? :)
This is the way we used to spend our summers. Now it seems my nephews spend it watching TV or playing games on the Internet. Sad times.
It sure appears as though they accomplished a lot today.
Love this! Nineteen panels of gorgeous artwork that shows childhood before hand-held games.
Amazing – not one frame showing a videogame. I can walk around town today and not see a single kid out doing the things that made summer special for my generation.
What flavor’s the SD today, Calvin?Guess ya saved a buncha stuff for tomorrow!
They forgot to play baseball in the street…oops! showin my age! :D
A very fine comic!
just you wait calvin. when you get older, the summer days get longer, but one has responsibilities. work(8-12 hours per day), family, clean the house, mow the lawn, fix something, etc…
I’m in Georgia – I have no kids but can imagine how frustrating it would be for them to see all the tv shows/comic strips running now featuring vacation road trips.
Ah, the good old days before parents started scheduling kids’ “fun”.
This was always one of my favorites. Each little vignette perfectly captures a moment which is instantly recognizable without words. Well done, Mr. Watterson!
This is how we all remember Summers from our childhood.
Calvin has his 2 best friends—Hobbes and a vivid, wonderful imagination.
Looks like they finally got Susie with the water ballons
I can remember those days of yesteryear.
They have so much fun. I’m jealous.
I am sooooo jealous of Calvin
All this lost to video games and “Helicopter Parents”.
It is surprising that he isn ’t courageous enough to grab that snake and carry it around his neck … or let Mom find it in his pocket.
A day in the life of Calvin & Hobbes…
This reminds me of that one Norman Rockwell painting I saw in Old Country Buffet.
I seem to have seen this somewhere before
“Time is relative to the observer”
Read all the Calvin and Hobbes comics
DAMN!!I miss being a kid.
My favorite memory of sneaking out on my parents was when we had gone camping with my BFF and we(friend & I) had our own tent. We went & looked at a hotel across the TCH and it had a pool and a canteen that we snuck into and got hold of some chocolate bars. We thought of going swimming , but then we would’ve needed new pj’s and towels, so we ditched that idea. If I was a thinker like Hobbes’ is, I’m sure it could’ve been done without my parents finding out. Oh to be young again with all the knowledge we have now. Who knows what trouble we’d find ourselves in eh?
I see London I see France, I see Calvin’s… butt crack
