    Calvin didn’t jump correctly and hold the rope on take off. Hobbes looks so positive.

    Children around the world share the dream of being flown by a balloon and the pain of watching his or her balloon fly away.

    Hobbes in the last panel looks sooo cute, just like my cat when she’s looking up.

    Never listen to anyone who says, “try jumping”.

    it’s not the fall that hurts. it ’s the sudden stop. I so love when Hobbes gets Calvin to do these things.

    Even at age 6, I knew Calvin was being stupid this way. And later, when he had his imaginary balloon adventure, he didn’t exactly enjoy it.

    It would be nice if readers avoided the political spin on these comics, I’m sure that is not what Watterson had in mind.

    Imagine yourself as the balloon, Calvin. BE the balloon.

    I’d suggest that Calvin needs to be more aware of the Law of Gravity and the difficulty of ignoring it—but then he did manage to ignore it once or twice. . . .

    Do not suck in more than 2 but try sucking in a helium balloon

    But NEVER suck it straight from the tank

    Somebody almost died from that

    This is why you need to pay attention in school when they’re talking about buoyancy, Calvin.
