I counted nine "see"s!
Heh, I always thought Calvin’s dad looked kind of like Yo-Yo Ma the cellist in the third panel, as I remembered seeing him on “Sesame Street” and “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” and “Arthur” as a kid.
This particular strip is a great example of how animated Bill Watterson’s drawings could be!
Like I’ve said, if only Calvin stayed quiet throughout, he wouldn’t have waken up his parents… plus, he could’ve waken up the Snow Goons!
And they would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for that meddling kid’s big mouth!
Love this one. I picture “Brahms’ Lullaby” playing in the last two panels, specifically the arrangement “The Ren & Stimpy Show” typically used…
Oh yes. Watterson has/had a lot of cats, but Sprite was the one that was the model for Hobbes, particularly the pouncing.
I remember what that was like, like from 10 to 11:30 PM-esque my mom used to watch TV in her room while my dad would be downstairs working on his computer. Nowadays they both go to bed around 10:30 to 11 PM on weeknights (and I am usually up until near midnight on a night I don’t have anything planned early the next morning.)
My parents can be like that too. Sometimes I can’t even talk about my problems with them; they just want me to repress them!
How about “Never tamper in God’s domain?” :P
