Thirty years ago, a spiky-haired little boy set a trap with a tuna fish sandwich, and one of the most iconic friendships in comic strip history was born.
The first strip of “Calvin And Hobbes” ran on Nov. 18, 1985, introducing the world to the mischievous young Calvin (named for the 16th-century theologian) and his pet tiger Hobbes (named for the 17th-century philosopher).
30 years ago today (November 18, 1985) we first met a boy and his pet tiger. Happy Birthday! pic.twitter.com/IxzwsUuCL5— Calvin and Hobbes (@Calvinn_Hobbes) November 18, 2015
This made my day.
