Bill Watterson drew Calvin & Hobbes from 1985 to 1995, always refusing to merchandise it, and finally retiring the strip for two reasons: his constant fights with his syndicate over this, and because he perceived all the characters to be fully explored and feared the comic would get stale.

Calvin is a 6-year-old boy who gets consistently terrible grades in school, and yet sounds like a doctor of philosophy during his long discussions of religion, politics, and morality with his best friend, Hobbes the stuffed Tiger. Hesitation must be used when referring to Hobbes as imaginary, since he is an entire half of Calvin’s personality, including his conscience. He is the only person to whom Calvin can truly relate, even though every other character in the strip sees Hobbes as a plush toy.

The storylines abound in this one, and picking the best is frankly impossible. Watterson champions the imagination for all the children readers, and also for the adults. The purest example of this is “calvinball,” a wonderfully fun game the title characters make up in protest to all the rules of organized sports. The only absolute rule in calvinball is that you may not play it the same way twice. The rest is a matter of making it up as you go, and it combines elements of cricket, tag, capture the flag, and several others.

Calvin also imagines himself in a variety of alter egos, including Spaceman Spiff, the intrepid intergalactic explorer of strange, new worlds, who fights and escapes from alien monsters; Tracer Bullet, the hard-boiled, film noir detective; and Stupendous Man, defender of liberty, whose arch-nemeses include Baby-Sitter Girl. Her real name is Rosalyn, and she is the only character in the strip who can truly terrify Calvin.

His parents’ names are never given, and he runs them ragged not as often as expected. He also wages an ongoing war with Susie Derkins, the only girl his age with whom he has any real relationship, namely one of tolerance. One of the best stories Watterson ever did, and one of the best in funny page history is that of the little raccoon, whom Calvin and Hobbes rescue from the woods, and who dies of an unknown ailment. Calvin and Hobbes have a protracted discussion on the fragility of life, and why in the world we’re all here. Not a single joke or gag in the whole storyline. But at the end, they hug and say, “Don’t YOU go anywhere.” “Don’t worry.” Never have two comic strip characters loved each other more.

By virtue of its astounding imagination, often philosophical, often serious drama, almost always light-hearted and hilarious, Calvin and Hobbes would take #1 even without considering how dynamically well drawn it is. The over-the-top mannerisms and action of Hobbes tackling Calvin at the doorway after school drew on the great Looney Tunes and Disney shorts, and paved the way for cartoons like Ren and Stimpy.
