Bill Watterson‘s beloved Calvin & Hobbes strips have never gotten the animation treatment for a couple of reasons: Watterson’s refusal to “sell out” to the merchandising gods, not wanting the hassle of going through the animation process and not believing that any voice actor would ever be able to effectively capture the spirit of the character of Calvin. So the closest we will likely ever get to an animated version of Calvin & Hobbes is this fun little short by animator Adam Brown (from Comedy Central’s UGLY AMERICANS).
