I don’t want to know into what Hobbes threw Calvin.
See why everyone around you is in a bad mood, Calvin?
You’re going to give your parents a bad mood, Calvin, when it comes to tracking the mud into the house. Better go to the backyard and hose off. Then again, the parents’ mood will still be bad when you’re dripping wet through the house.
Too bad we can’t all do that at our appropriate moments.
Calvin doesn’t know any swear words? I would’ve thought he elicited quite a few of them from his parents and Rosalyn.
Was Hobbes sleeping outside, or does he keep a mudhole handy indoors?
Self-fulfilling moods only work well if they’re good ones.
A six-year-old with a phenomenal vocabulary like Calvin’s, and he doesn’t know any swear words? He obviously knows they exist…
Things like that happen when you don’t get Chocolate-Coated Sugar Bombs for breakfast.
It’s everyone’s fault but Calvin’s.
First two panels are gold.
More than a bad mood seems a bad mud .
Swear words are a very useful venting device, Calvin… until your Mom (or wife) hears you…!!
“All experiences are preceded by mind." The Buddha (or something like that).
Calvin treats Hobbs in an obnoxious manner and doesn’t understand why Hobbs doesn’t adore him for it. Calvin refuses to take responsibility for the outcome and still thinks that it is not his fault that the world is against him.
I know people like that.
Buddha said “Think before you put someone in a mudhole. Then do it.”
I would love to see a version of this comic minus Hobbes like they do with Garfield.
You’d think Hobbes throwing Calvin in a mud puddle would cheer him up.
Four Five Six is almost like swear words, do they count?
LOL! This is why I love Hobbes! He’s knows how to put Calvin in his place! (-:
Swearing makes me feel better, but only when I’m alone.
The old man worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay.
Jesus was a carpenter…what did he say when he’d hit his thumb?
“Myself, myself…aaah that hurts!”
The best way to make a bad day worse is to take your grump out on others.
Calvin is 6. The problem is adults acting like this.
30 years on and an entire generation acts like this. Maybe Calvin is their deity.
Now he needs a bath and that won’t do any better
Some people say that children up to a certain age are psychopaths and narcissists, but Calvin will never change.
I love it when the foul-mooded Calvin eats dirt. In this case, pretty much literally.
why is it when people are aggravated that they do things / find wayscto aggravate themselves even more?
I’m not fond of cats, but I love Hobbs.
I would love to see Calvin in a bad mood meet Lucy Van Pelt in a bad mood.
Calvin does know some swear words, though.
Many cats have the ability to generate powerful do-not-disturb waves, even while asleep. You ignore them at your peril.
Heh, Calvin DOES know some swear words. Look at the Sunday strips for December 14, 1986, and January 24, 1988!
As one of those obnoxious law-abiding motorists, I tend to become annoyed at aggressive drivers. I have started trying to come up with excuses for their behavior. Maybe they are driving their child to the ER?? Maybe their boss said they would be fired if they are late one more time?? Anyway it helps me be more tolerant. : )
Usually he holds his own better in a fight with Hobbes – the little tike is slipping!
I’m so envious! My neighborhood didn’t have a mudhole.
If he doesn’t know any swear words, he must never go in public. I hear them constantly from foul mouths.
Calvin, Hobbes is NOT your punching bag unless he really is a figment of your imagination!
Calvin should be grateful that Hobbes just gave him a mudbath, and not a “massage” with his sharp, pointy toes.
I believe that’s called “cause and effect.” Calvin’s lesson today for science AND psychology (hey, a twofer).
Life lesson – Pushing and shoving the world around doesn’t work. The world is bigger and stronger and doesn’t really care about you. Case in point – the current pandemic.
