Some Friday Fun: Calvin and Hobbes

Happy Friday everyone! As a sort of follow-up to yesterday’s salary cap debate, I thought this Calvin and Hobbes strip was appropriate.

I’d like to include more Calvin and Hobbes strips (similar to what I’ve done with Peanuts strips in the past), but Bill Watterson and Universal don’t like people doing that. I hope then, by embedding this image in the way they ask you to with strips like Peanuts,  I’m respecting their wishes.

If you are dying to see the (relatively few) Calvin and Hobbes baseball strips, I highly recommend the “Calvin and Hobbes Extensive Strip Search (C.H.E.S.S.)“. The owner of the site has gone through every single Calvin and Hobbes strip and cataloged not only all the dialog but described what was happening in every panel. It’s incredibly simple to just type in the word “baseball” (or whatever else you’re looking for) and get a list of ever strip to feature “baseball” in any way. From there, you just have to go to the official website, at, and search for the date you found. It may not be the most straightforward way to see your favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips, but it is pretty simple.

And now that I’ve given you a quick, simple way to dig through the Calvin and Hobbes archives, I suspect your Friday is shot. Enjoy (and you’re welcome).
