Books

You should really read Calvin and Hobbes on book form. It's a much better experience to read it in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate milk than in front of the computer.

RULES

The rules on this site are few and simple.
  • No swearing or lewdness allowed
  • No namecalling in the forums or the strips (the usual Calvin vs Hobbes child-friendly name calling is allowed)
  • No personal messages in the strips, please. It's more entertaining for everyone if the strips are generally funny.
  • Keep the violence in the strips under control. Hobbes pouncing Calvin and the two having fights is ok. Killing the babysitter is not. Transporting her in time back to the dinosaurs and such is ok.
  • If anyone starts namecalling or harassing in the forums: DO NOT REPLY. That would only spur the perpetrator on. By denying him/her the desired result (making a fuzz and upsetting others) he/she will go elsewhere.
  • NO SPAMMING! This goes for the forums AND for the strips. If you have a C&H site, add the link to the link section. Links to specific pages on sites may be OK if they are relevant to the forum and the topic being discussed.
Examples of allowed namecalling: "I'll kick your butt, fur-face" and "don't sleep too tight tonight you hairless monkey" will be allowed. Examples that will get your strip deleted: You didn't really think I'd put any such examples here, did you? ;-) Avatar guidelines: 1. Avatar size. Avatars should not be wider than about 100 pixels. If they are, they seal a large amount of space from the text area of the forum, and that's where the important stuff is. If having large (wide) banners becomes a "demand" I would rather see them in the tagline/footer of a message than in the left column. 2. Animated avatars. Animations are allowed (although I generally think animated gifs tend to mess up any design), but I will ask you to keep it discrete. I'd be happy if you kept it to slow rotations etc. That way our eyes won't be that stressed while we are reading the forums, as the animations draw attention. 3. Content in avatars. This site should be suitable for audience in all ages, so NO violence/blood/gore or adult stuff. Violating this rule will get your account closed immediately, no warnings, no questions asked!

Site map

Are you lost? Having trouble finding your ways in the menus? Just want to get an overview of what's here? You've come to the right place. This is the Calvin and Hobbes treasure map. Or site map, as it's usually called here on the web. Whatever you want to call it, this is where you will find shortcuts to all (or most) of the important places on Digital Calvin and Hobbes. I will try to keep this map as updated at possible. If you think something is missing please feel free to let me know.

Bill Watterson

Personally I think Bill is a genius when it comes to writing cartoons. The way many of his strips have both a "simple meaning" that my kids can enjoy and at the same time make you think about it for days because of a deeper meaning is nothing less than brilliant.

Dedicated fans

In this section I will do interviews and profiles of really dedicated fans.

From time to time I notice people that really go out of their way to make a tribute to Calvin and Hobbes. Usually this is the webmaster of a Calvin and Hobbes site, but it doesn't have to be. By interviewing them, I will try to show you a glimpse of what goes on in the world and mind of a truly dedicated Calvin and Hobbes Fan.

Quotes

Looking for a funny one-liner or a word of wisdom? This is the place. Calvin has said many things through the years, and some of the deepest and funniest can be found in this list. Oh, and Hobbes have some deep ones, too!

Dad has also said some crazy stuff. For instance, did you know that there is a little man inside the ATM that hands you the money? That's right! Just like with the garage door opener!

Fortunately, it's true like people say; you should never believe everything you read.
