What happens when you take the unpredictable panel layouts and [[MindScrew surreal nature]] of George Herriman's ''ComicStrip/KrazyKat'' and Winsor [=McCay=]'s ''ComicStrip/LittleNemo'', the childhood fantasy elements of Crockett Johnson's ''ComicStrip/{{Barnaby}}'', the lush art, [[CastOfSnowflakes distinct characterizations]] and [[{{Satire}} biting satire]] of Walt Kelly's ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}'' and the [[SliceOfLife gently comedic]] look at the [[LifeIsntFair hard truths of life]] from Charles M. Schulz's ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', throw in a dash of [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation classic cartoon]] [[ZanyCartoon slapstick]] [[XMeetsY and fuse them all together into one comic]]?

Tried to incorporate a justifying edit into the main paragraph
** Calvin had one of these in school when he realized he was trapped inside during a beautiful day. Miss Wormwood was surprisingly sympathetic, advising Calvin to "take a drink of water and a few deep breaths" as she took him back to his seat. *** ''Unsurprisingly'' sympathetic, given that other strips state that she drinks Maalox straight from the bottle and smokes heavily just to get through the week. She might relate to him the most in this aspect, in an odd way.

* FunForSome: Calvin's father enjoys doing many things that Calvin (and certain other characters) find very strange. For example, Calvin thinks his dad is boring because he genuinely enjoys eating plain oatmeal. There are also plenty of activities that the dad willingly participates in that border on the masochistic: bicycling over rough terrain while being chased by dogs, going outside in the middle of a blizzard in the dead of winter just to [[GRatedDrug get a rush from the "brisk" cold winter]], and - much to the chagrin of the other members of the family - ''going camping in the pouring rain''. ("At least it's not snowing, right?") At one point Calvin finds his father so bizarre that [[AmbiguouslyHuman he has to wonder if his dad is even human]]. (Of course, given that the father is a FormerTeenRebel as noted above, he could have embraced a Spartan lifestyle simply for a change of pace, or as an extreme attempt to reform.)
