The rain barrel part of the house must still be in the 19th century.
Rain barrel? What be this ‘rain barrel’? (JK, I know what it is)
If Calvin’s parents found him in the rain barrel, they’ll wonder how he got himself therein without toppling it over.
The tiger would have done humanity a favor by keeping his head in for 5 minutes!!!
If Calvin paid attention in class, he would know cats don’t like water.
My old grandma used to collect rain water in a rain barrel and then use it to wash her hair. I guess it has its uses.
“Little House on The Prairie" called and they want the rain barrel returned to Walnut Grove….
Or as Bugs Bunny would have said, “What a maroon!”
The old “see who can hit the lightest” game.
Well-deserved, Calvin. Well-deserved.
Given Calvin’s rep, Hobbes should’ve seen that one coming.
Or a cheater. Nya nya.
As it’s all in his imagination did he really end up in the barrel, or even get wet? It’s all in the mind you know…
Notice no one is ever eager to play games with you, Calvin!
One person’s genius is another person’s idiocy.
Why am I not surprised that Calvin is wet behind the ears?
30 years old and these 2 guys are still the best and funniest in all of comics land.
Oh no! Not roll out the barrel! Not that! Please! The gambling bug will get you if you don’t watch out!
I guess Susie was too smart – er, I mean, unavailable to play…
Irony is poorly developed in 7 year olds.
A kid his age uses “naïf”…?
Put goldfish in barrel for Spring-Autumn. Then fish went into pond for Winter. No skeeters. As a ‘plus’, goldfish manure in water for garden., etc.
That is some bad ass imaginary companion.
You ever notice just how much bigger and more soak-inducing water balloons are in this strip compared to real life water balloons?
That was Hobbes line.
“It’s no fun to be held accountable for acting like a doosh!”
What’s good for the tiger is good for the little boy.
Growing up in Ecuador, I can still remember playing with water balloons during Carnaval.The authorities discouraged the practice, but no one really paid attention, since it was open season to soak anybody coming close to you. My grandparent’s house was ideal for this. We would fill dozens of balloons and go to the second story terrace were we would hurl them at unsuspecting passersby on the street. The spout on the bidet was the perfect way of filling these rubber bombs.
Ohhhh..my wife and I played this at a summer party once — DECADES ago! I think I finally nailed her!
/I mean — with the water balloon.
I wonder what observers external to Calvin’s imagination see here. Did he dunk himself in the rain barrel?
Leave it to Calvin to tweak an old game.
“It’s only funny when I do it to you!”
The lesson here is "Don’t play tricks on someone who can hold you up at arms’ length by the ankles.
Takes one to know one Calvin.
So if Hobbes is NOT real, I guess he would tell his parents that he decided to jump into the water barrel all on his own? And how did he get in? And do people still have those? (OK – I’m done with channeling Sheldon Cooper for now…)
Pride cometh before the fall, Calvin.
Priceless Expression on Hobbs as he carries Calvin to rain Barrel!
“No fun to play games with a poor sport.” And yet, Hobbes still plays with him anyway.
