  1. I don’t agree with choices made for the “Friends as superheroes” pic…I would have rearranged the characters dramatically differently.

    C’est la vie.

    • I was thinking the exact same thing.

  2. That animated Calvin and Hobbes just re-affirms that there should never be an animated version of it.

    • i thought it was cool, and done right, it could be awesome. i remember reading the books as a kid.

    • yes there should.

    • Watterson would agree. Notice how the animation left out the dialogue. Calvin’s voice would be tough to pin down.

  3. Love seeing people animate Calvin & Hobbes! Was a really great comic strip.

  4. Thanks, Screen Rant. Now I have to wear a Powder Puff Girls inspired shirt because my brain can’t refuse anything that awesome.

  5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30rUL2oVlfI watch on your own risk…

  6. I’m very happy that they didn’t have dialogue in the animated C&H. That would have butchered it for me.

  7. Love seeing people animate Calvin & Hobbes! Was a really great comic strip.
