Oh, to be a problem child again

  • Oct 6, 2008
To the person with great imagination, the world is magical, for if it is not the way you want it to be, your imagination can change it. In your mind, you can fly, heroically battle monsters from space, travel through time and subject your enemies to whatever purgatory you desire. Calvin is such a child; his life is difficult, except when he is with his best friend Hobbs.
Watterson does a masterful job in blurring the line between what is Calvin's imagination and reality regarding the actions of Hobbes, the stuffed tiger. On occasion, the story is as if Hobbes is alive and did something and at other times it is Calvin doing what he believes Hobbes would do. This blurring of the line improves the quality of the strip, for Calvin and reality often follow divergent paths.
Calvin is a hero to all children, independent of their age, whose imagination sustains them through life. May he and all like him never truly grow up.
