Born in 1966. Live in the UK. Favourite strip is Calvin and Hobbes so - like many others - I have taken my username from it. My second favourite is Andy Capp.

    Correct. Fire should only refer to guns and cannons. The correct term is to shoot an arrow. We do see cannons and sometimes handguns in “The Wizard of Id” so it’s acceptable for someone to incorrectly refer to firing a bow as people sometimes do today.

    Charles II died without any legitimate children – although there were plenty of illegitimate ones – so James II succeeded him as king. In the first year, there was the unsuccessful Monmouth Rebellion. Three years later, there was the Glorious Revolution and James II went into exile.

    Maybe Fred doesn’t want to risk being part of the gossip.

    This one must be set after the first moon landing. Many of them have been set before the first landing.

    Earlier rendering. Bill Watterson is proud to have drawn all of the Calvin and Hobbes strips with no help from anyone else.

    Bill Watterson includes this strip in “The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book” and says that Hobbes going into the washing machine and Calvin accepting it is “one of the fuzzier blurrings of what Hobbes actually is”. He has explained earlier on in the book that he isn’t sure himself of what Hobbes is but doesn’t see him as either a product of Calvin’s imagination or as a doll who comes to life. The important thing is that “Calvin sees Hobbes one way. The rest of the world see him another.”

    Mom often refers to Hobbes as a stuffed tiger but Calvin never seems to notice this. Neither Calvin nor Hobbes seem to be aware that everyone but Calvin sees Hobbes as a stuffed tiger.

    Calvin is aware that his parents don’t believe Hobbes pounces on him. In one Sunday strip, he took a photo of Hobbes pouncing on him and showed it to Dad who just saw a stuffed tiger in the air.

    Hobbes: He thinks what? You picked me up and threw me in the air! I’ve never been so insulted in my life!

    “Monkeys going round the moon,

    We’ll be going too, soon.

    Things ain’t what they used to be!"

    That musical was from the early 1960s before the first attempts to send humans to the moon. The first successful manned flight to the moon was in 1969, of course, although some people thought it was a hoax and these people have increased in number as have the people who insist that the Earth is really flat.

    Sometimes things aren’t what they used to be because of backward thinking rather than forward thinking.

    It’s a philosophical strip. Both Calvin and Hobbes are named after philosophers.
