Not only a snow goon, but the fastest snow goon!
What a nightmare on Calvin’s street: a victim of filicide.
Nice slide, but I bet that’s going to leave a mark.
Except this snow goon is real.
i love the drawing on the third panel
Were-goon. Where goon? There goon.
Dad.. I think the answer to that question is pretty obvious, don’t you?
I have vague memories of being tied in bed. It wasn’t hard to escape, but it was sufficient to keep me from falling out.
I had forgotten this part of the snowgoon arc. Gave me a fine chuckle.
As icy man Dad is not able to run, he is stiff!
The Iceman Cometh!
Calvin, you’re going up against a Snow Goon?
…You silly, twisted boy.
Whew, Hobbes turned back into a doll in the nick of time!
Don’t remember this one, great expressions though….
“Dad, too, is a snow goon!”
Great, now we’re going to have to wear masks to keep from becoming snow goons.
I can only imagine what the neighbors are thinking…
Snow Goons have nasty dispositions to begin with, but if give one a reason to be honked off, you’ll be in big trouble.
I never chained a kid to bed, but I did duct tape their full zip jammies shut ~ to prevent the diaper disaster.
My brother and I build a huge Igloo/snow fort in the backyard one winter and went out on a very very cold night and hosed it down (with parental approval-what were they thinking????). It was a solid chunk of ice the next morning and lasted until mid spring. It even left a shallow depression in the yard once it melted.
This is NOT going to end well…
Here today, goon tomorrow…
I love this story arc.
calvin done for
Lol this strip Made me really laugh
Its a DAD SNOW GOON
There’s never a snow patrol around when you need one. Either for Calvin or for his Dad. I wonder where they keep the snow jail.
this kid is a perfect argument for birth control
The final boss
“Slip sliding away…slip sliding away-yyy-yyy. You know, the nearer your destination, the more you’re slip sliding away.”
Once again, Calvin manages to summon another snow goon.
WAAUGHH?? The waaughhle house ….. Luft waaughh uh….German potato salad house of culinary horrors?
Snow goons are in places you’d never expect.
Calvin so much trouble.
Black ice is suicide
Everybody gangsta until a snow goon gains a human body.
Snow Goon ? Nope, The Iceman cometh !
Cracked a rib that way. Taught me that with sufficient motivation, a sneeze can be suppressed.
I give Dad an 8.5 for form.
Calvin get’s in trouble, Mom has a headache, and Dad has to go to the hospital. Good job, Calvin.
This is a really funny Calvin and Hobbes.
This particular strip is a great example of how animated Bill Watterson’s drawings could be!
The snow goons are quickly becoming the least of Calvin’s worries.
I am beginning to wonder if Calvin will survive childhood!
Run Rabbit, Run Rabbit, run, run, run; don’t let the father have his fun, fun, fun
Funny how Calvin dad is a snow goons too?
Is this about as close as they get to sending Calvin to a house for troubled children?
In spite of his flailing plummet down the front walk, Dad maintains enough presence of mind to shout out an explanation to the world at large: “The whole yard’s ice!”
I love this story arc. I don’t care that I already read it in the collections, but I still love it.
Good god, what is this six year old doing outside the house after midnight.
Calvin’s dad is a disgrace, he NEVER nurtures Calvin’s imagination, and childhood dreams. Follow how his dad reacts to anything that Calvin does that shows creativity and imagination. Calvin’s mother, although often frustrated, understands and nurtures Calvin. Calvin’s dad is a LOOSER as a father and role model..
Ooh boy, Calvin’s in trouble
I’ve always loved Watterson’s art of Dad falling here.
One of the Best strips ever!!!!
Is this the most aggravated that we’ve ever seen Dad?
I’ve always been suspicious of Dad.
After moving to a snowy state from the South, I decide on washing my car on my steep north facing driveway on a nice, sunny winter day. Never considered the concrete was still cold enough to immediately freeze the water. Fortunately, most injuries were to my pride.
