I see 6+5 crashing so hard into each other, that it will end up becoming 56.
And form a new planet, Planet 11!
Somewhere, from another galaxy, comes the strains of the Jimi Hendrix classic, “If 6 was 9,” as Calvin says, “Let it be…it ain’t me.”
Turn in your spaceship and suit, Spiff.
He’s about to land on a detention after school!!
We can expect his normal grade on this test paper.
I imagine Albert Einstein at Calvin’s age on a spaceship.
Calvin’s SAT exam is going to be interesting.
I am imagining a kid with his expression during an arithmetic quiz.
He’s gonna need to hurry up as this question et al. are awaiting an answer.
An unusual mission indeed, Spiff.
Fingers and toes Calvin, fingers and toes.
That’s subtraction; not addition, Calvin.
Will Spiff resolve the situation to his advantage? Does it all add up? Stay tuned!
Activate Emergency Plan B! Get in Escape Pod…Grab Head and Stomach…Yell Code for School Nurse…Hit Eject.
Crash and burn are inevitable at this point.
“Somehow to crash together planets six and five.”
“When a six turns out to be five. It just don’t jive…just don’t jive.”
Seems like it would be a helluva lot easier just to learn arithmetic.
I love the pushed back hair in the last frame
Calvin’s father is really going to have words with him later.
Oddly enough, when I crash 5 and 6 together I get 1011 or “B”. Yeah, I’m a nerd.
Susie: 6+5=11. Calvin: 6+5=65.
1 2 skip these 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11.
I was this kid. I couldn’t do math without creating a story of an epic war between the even numbers and the odd numbers. Odd numbers were the good guys, obviously.
That boy is the original Space Cadet. He’ll do well in the new Space Force. … I crack me up :-)
I love word problems.
Calvin studied long and hard for the question 8+4=?? and then clear out of left field – in flies the question 6+5= ?? What’s a kid supposed to do!? OBOE’s aren’t even taught until 2nd grade.
If Spaceman Spiff were a weekly tv series, I’d gladly pay to watch it.
About the time Calvin guesses at the first answer, Ms Wormwood will be saying “ Time is up, pass the quizzes forward”.
Time to turn in the test comes before Spiff finds the answer?
Can’t go wrong with 42. 42 is always the answer!
I wonder what he has been studying with dad?
