It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

Calvin and Hobbes Documentary Trailer Gives Us All Kinds of Feels


There’s something about Calvin and Hobbes. Everyone of a certain era in American childhood, from all walks of life, has a memory or a story or a warm fuzzy feeling when they think of the iconic comic strip and its young blonde hero, and that floppy tiger.

It makes sense, then, that a comic so powerful is getting its own documentary about the impact it has had on the lives of so many people– within the industry and beyond.

If you love Calvin and Hobbes, check out this trailer for Dear Mr. Watterson, and try not to drown in your own bittersweet tears.

    I just wish in the trailer they labels for who’s who. I imagine several of those people were famous comic strip artists, but I don’t know for sure.

    Not just American kids…

    Man, I wish I had read Calvin and Hobbes more when I was a kid. We always had a book of the comic lying around in the house, but I never read it. Oh regrets…

    FWIW, it’s a good read for adults too, so if you ever feel like digging that old book out, you might find it worthwhile.

    I have/had several (almost all) of the collections but left them with my sister, where I know they’re well loved and taken care of. I’m so glad Bill never got into the whole merchandising thing with Calvin and Hobbes.
