Hobbes' Understudy by AK-Is-Harmless Hobbes' Understudy by AK-Is-Harmless
Apologies to Bill Watterson on this one. I couldn’t resist. I had this idea while drawing last week’s comic. I shudder to think of the kind of person Calvin would grow up to be if his best friend growing up was Winslow instead of his tiger Hobbes.

Bill Watterson is an inspiration to every contemporary cartoonist ever, and will be for the foreseeable future. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a big fat sillypants.

Of course he wouldn't have a potty mouth for a friend. That's the point. The scenario is ridiculous. :)

SCARIEST AUTISTIC EVER - he would ruin things for all others with Autism/Asperger's. D:

Hmm... good question.

Calvin was, in any event, or was at least thought to be. My High School had a Multi-Cultural Literature class up until last year and I was in the final class - we talked about Calvin, Charlie Brown, Amelia Bedelia - we had a whole unit on Autism and Asperger's. It was quite interesting given that a large group of my friends have been diagnosed with one, the other, or both.

In any case - had Calvin grown up with Winslow, I think they would still be putting those with Autism/Asperger's in sanitariums.
