* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace:
** If we take the "[[SneezeOfDoom sneezed himself into the atmosphere]]" strip at face value.
** The strip where he kept growing and growing until he outgrew the entire galaxy.
** In ''Weirdos from Another Planet'', Calvin and Hobbes use the wagon to travel to Mars, land, and then come back, and never even bat an eyelash at the inability to breathe in space, nor in Mars' thin, carbon dioxide filled atmosphere.

** One Spaceman Spiff strip has him finding a planet with a city and civilization that are the size of ants, likely an ode to the ''Series/TwilightZone'' episode "The Little People".

** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in one strip where Calvin (he's only 6 years old,) explains to his mother the complicated notion that black holes create a depression in space so that other objects "roll" towards them... and then adds "Speaking of gravity, I dropped a pitcher of lemonade in the kitchen when my roller blades slipped." While grinding her teeth and cleaning up the mess, his mom wonders how he can be so smart and yet so dumb.

* ClingyCostume: Calvin comes home from school and tells Mom he got stuck in his snow pants. He couldn't get them unzipped because the zipper was covered in ice, then he tried to force open the zipper and got a mitten jammed in it, then he tried to pull his pants off, but he had forgotten to take off his boots, so they got stuck as well, then the pants got all twisted and he fell down. It took the teacher and two custodians to get him out. Since Calvin lives to create mischief, he finishes this story by enthusiastically saying that he'll be sure to wear the pants again tomorrow.

** Calvin brags to Hobbes about his juggling skills, saying he can keep a dozen eggs in the air at once. He tosses the eggs up the air; a second or so later, Calvin and the carpet are both covered in egg yolk and broken shells. Calvin says, "Notice I didn't say I could do it very long."
