One of my favorite comic strips of all time was Calvin & Hobbes. I have all the collected editions of the strips and have re-read them many times. I remember being a kid and having my own version of Hobbes, a stuffed Snoopy, who accompanied me on my adventures in the back yard.
This fascinating look at the history of the strip and its creator’s uncompromising vision is both entertaining and inspiring. If you like the video and are into pop-culture with a focus on Saturday morning cartoons and the toys that came with them, check out Toy Galaxy’s channel, especially if you’re into dry Gen X humor.
