    You can pay Rosalyn all the money in the world for babysitting Calvin and it still wouldn’t be enough.

    And the night started with Calvin wanting to just sit on the floor and look at the wall. Imagine that.

    So, when Mom and Dad return, they’ll find their unwanted progeny (see yesterday’s strip) peacefully in bed—thus thwarting the “babysitter-from-He11’s” scheme to extort more $$$ from them.

    Rosalyn told Calvin in Thursday’s strip, “You have two seconds to get your caped butt in bed before I put it there permanently!” Now, Calvin is taking his caped butt to bed but Rosalyn is freezing her own butt off searching for him outside.

    Calvin’s good fortune never lasts for long. of course.;

    As I noted on Monday, Hobbes was shown walking away from Calvin, who had just appeared as Stupendous Man, and saying, “I’m going to bed now to avoid the rush,” and sure enough we do see that Hobbes went to bed by himself before Calvin. This is just one more example of Hobbes walking away from Calvin on his own. Of course, he can only be shown walking away from Calvin when no one else is around.

    am i the only one who sees these strips as a peek into what the childhood of a successful cartoonist and artist looks like?

    You know, Ross… If you were less strict and controlling and more trustworthy, Calvin would not do these things!

    Rosalyn should have waited him out, he’d get cold the longer he stayed outside.

    Rosalyn should have tried a stunt. Maybe standing in the door calling Cal and flashing the light. Then, Well, I can’t see him. H-m-m-m-m, Hey, Cal, if you’re out there, be careful. I just saw a big animal with lots of fangs go by. Then close the door with a bang and wait for reaction. Give Cal’s imagination time to work.

    So Calvin will spend the evening in bed anyway. Just to bug Rosalyn.

    Yep… There is Hobbes, wisely already in bed. Oh no ! I hope Calvin has not locked her out. That would be in character for him, for sure.

    Time to switch back to his secret identity as Calvin and deny everything.

    Good luck with that.

    I suspect that, if Roz has her way, the guards will be dustin off old sparkie up at the big house for Cal.

    Does he REALLY Rosalyn is THAT stupid? This has to be near the top of the worst things Calvin did to her.

    Does Calvin ever get in trouble for cutting eye holes in what looks to be the size of a pillow case? Love the little bat ears detail.

    They say that it was at this point in history that electroshock therapy came back for wayward children. Although many say it may well have been for babysitters. Only history can really tell for sure.

    Rosalyn, the only other possible reason you keep doing this is because you’re a masochist…
