  • This sketch is a parody of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strips.
  • Earlier in the skit, Hobbes mentions the cigarette company Marlboro.

Trivia / Info:

  • The shock therapy scene may be alluded from the film A Beautiful Mind.
  • Hobbes refers to Calvin by name in this skit - something he did not do very often in the strip.
  • Inside the house is a picture of Calvin, which looked the way the character appeared in the strip.
  • This is one of Calvin and Hobbes very few appearances in animated media.

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • In the comic strips, Calvin did not receive Hobbes as a present; he caught him in a tiger trap.
  • Since Hobbes was a stuffed animal, Calvin most likely killed his parents, but between a tiger and a 6-year old boy, only a tiger would be strong enough to operate a chainsaw.
