My second most favourite series from Calvin and Hobbes, where Dad teaches Calvin the wonders of science.
I always love this strip!
Dad’s know EVERYTHING. XD

Absolutely true! And I remember when you actually carried out the last frame of comic strip #3. Now…let’s go build some crazy snowmen!

I’ve got to say, I have based some of my parenting from what I learned in C*H. Unfortunately, I’ve also taught my daughter to question things that don’t seem right. And she does, she definitely does.
I just remembered how I found your blog. I Googled “Calvin and Hobbes Bridge Load Limit”, this being my favorite C & H strip, and up popped your site. Lucky me! I pinned the strip to “Pinterest”, my newest favorite website, and that links me (and other folks who follow me on Pinterst) back to your site. Cool. I’m in California, BTW.
Ha, brilliant!! My favourite strip of all time.
Thanks, I’ve been looking for the B&W world strip for ages, and now not only did I find it here, you’ve collected strips from one of my favorite themes from C&H! Thank you!
