Hobbes is happy as long as he has his tuna sandwiches and the opportunity to pounce on Calvin few times a week.
Tigers are both scarier and wiser than most humans.
Tuna sandwiches and smooches from girls.
Chrismtas Day’s strip isn’t going to be the one where Calvin gets from Hobbes a one-day, pounce-free coupon/certificate, is it? Or the one Calvin gets a few cans of tuna and returns them to Hobbes seeing as he didn’t give him anything (and one of the parents offscreen asks Calvin if he cluttered the pantry)?
A dummy that looks like Calvin, so Hobbes doesn’t have to wait around for the real Calvin.
Hobbes forgot Susie’s smooches .
Hobbs is wise.
“What are you even talking about? ‘Being happy with what you’ve got’? Instead of wanting more? Are you out of your mind?
Give Hobbes a case of tuna and he’s happy.
It’s Calvin who lacks imagination. He can’t even think up something his imaginary friend might want.
You are right Hobbes, it’s too commercial these days anyway…
He sleeps with his next potential meal. What more could he want?
Ask for a turnip twaddler for your friends over in Bloom County…
Doesn’t he seem to understand Hobbes?
He wants a tuna sandwich and suzie derkins
My Christmas wish is for Hobbes to return in 2021, we need him!
Well…. they ARE on such different levels here that I must admit it could give a little credence to my friend, Calvinist1966’s assertion that Hobbs is indeed a separate entity…. but I think I’ll hang on to my own concept that Hobbs is Calvin’s alter ego, his “inner voice”. ;-)
That’s the way I feel about Christmas presents. I keep telling my family I don’t want anything. Just more junk to store.
Too bad Calvin’s life as an adult is never explored. Real tragedy in the making here.
You know, I agree with Hobbes on this one, however I have noticed that people won’t, generally, let you get away with that. They don’t want to know what I want, they want to know what to get me. I’m okay with that. Just an observation.
That’s quite the list Calvin has… and he’s probably not done.
What do you get the tiger who doesn’t want anything?
Surprised Hobbes not said comics, tuna sandwiches, and love from girls. For me to the point I do not need much for Christmas time. For my sister/husband they decided if need of, ask and have to wait for Christmas time. Mean time my sister watches what her hubby likes to play with and I have that like here, just have to wrap. She was here recent noticed not wrapped and out, I told her already in a box, she asked did I spoil it by asking, I told her I knew she would.
Someday Calvin will understand. Actually, I think in one famous and poignant Christmas morning cartoon – he did capitulate to that line of thought.
It’s funny. I find myself more and more as I get older answering the question “what do you want for Christmas/birthday” with “eh, I don’t know.”
That is one smart tiger.
Dunno why he behaves like he’s the cat’s whiskers!
I have noticed you have wisdom, Hobbes. You should get a job as a Buddha for tigers.
Actually, I think he’s luckier than us greedy humans.
Well, at least Watterson allows comments. Why the hell Brooke McEldowny won’t with 9 Chickweed Lane still remains a mystery to me. I welcome any ideas.
I like how Hobbes much less greedy than Calvin. He just wants to be with his family, which is what Christmas is all about, not presents, but to be with and celebrate those who matter.
ok , how did one piece of paper turn into 18, aloso thats a THICK list my guy.
