Close that book and go practice your magic. Maybe it will work the next time.
Where did I put that magician manual?…..
Take a school class on how to do magic. Maybe that’ll help.
I think Calvin lost Homework @ “hocus-pocus”. Homework does not take well to being derided.
No wand no magic.
Oh, if only this actually worked…..
You’re underage to do magic at home, Calvin, as said by the Ministry of Magic minister (at the time period of this strip’s original publishing) Cornelius Fudge.
Worth a try
You can’t get good magical instructions these days.
Calvin should have tried the magic words “Walla Walla Washington”.
Later, Stupendous Man used a giant lens to incinerate Calvin’s school!
Might work better with a wand.
Hey, even Harry Potter started somewhere.
This is where Hagrid appears and intones “You’re not a Wizard, Calvin”……
Admit it, we all has tried this trick at least once.
I thought it was abracapocus
Every kid has tried that ever since homework was invented and it never works!
When it comes to being wealthy, getting a good education and working hard used to be one way.
But it really helps to have rich parents.
Nowadays the magic cheat words are Google, copy and paste!
If he’s 6 years old what kind of homework does he have? When I was a kid many, many years ago I don’t remember getting any homework until Grade 3. Or was it Grade 4?
Cal forgot the Eye of newt and toe of frog. No wonder it failed. And where’s the cauldron? Kids today, sheez!
Everyone knows it should be Frammin on the Jim jam, frippin at the krotz.
Yeah, I discovered that prayer didn’t work either.
Sorry Cal – there’s no “doing” in the magic; the “magic” is in the doing. Try it. You might learn something.
Never took homework home. Always did it in study hall and during lunch. Never could figure out why all of my friends would rather do homework after school instead of coming out to play.
That didn’t work so well for Mickey in Fantasia.
Hocus pocus says calvins parents, make Calvin disappear, forever!!!!
the word is ‘imperio’, but I believe is forbidden
I’ve always preferred “Af Schmaz Kapoop”…
Great idea, Cal! Tell them rats ate your homework!
So much for his getting admitted to Hogwarts…
It was a plan.
For once, ‘Calvin’ is acting like a child to whom I can relate ! ! ! !
If only that worked…
Yeah, never worked for me either.
You gotta hold your tongue right.
He tried to pull a Donald tRump.
His hocus-pocus needs more focus.
worth a shot
I try the same thing with work every day…same result
Calvin explaining Donald Dumpster’s comments on Covid just ending & disappearing…..
I have tried this with the lawn. Sat on my deck, coffee in hand and WILLED the grass to cut itself. Didn’t work, so I got another cup of coffee….
Best learned early Calvin.(It doesn’t work for housework or yard work,either.)
He reminds me of the Vader kid.
I remember trying all the tricks. The one that seemed the most scientific was to try to hypnotize my subconscious into doing the homework while my conscious mind daydreamed. Didn’t work either.
We all tried.
Yeah, I tried that too. Didn’t work for me either. Sheesh!
A little training to that stuffed feline could have given better result.
I bet Calvin would love the learning Tech in the Matrix.
Jack in and a computer downloads as the data and even the necessary skills to use it in mere seconds.
Didn’t work for me either. Even in college.
Behind that ‘genius’ mind, is an idiot.
