Calvin and Hobbes is a daily American comic strip created by cartoonist Bill Watterson. It was published from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995.

The comic strip is about Calvin a mischievous six year old boy and his stuffed toy tiger Hobbes. In Calvin’s imagination Hobbes is a living tiger while every other characters see Hobbes as a stuffed toy.
