* AbortedArc: Watterson once wanted to run a whole month's worth of strips involving Calvin getting stuck on the ceiling due to his gravity polarity being reversed, and then growing larger and larger (to the point of the universe being the size of a hula-hoop, when proportionately compared) to see how the fans would react. Watterson feared the backlash and quickly pulled out, however. [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1989/11/13 Here is the arc]].

* AuthorTract: Admit it- half the things Calvin and Hobbes say sound ''way'' too educated and ideological for characters who are expected to have childlike mindsets. Sometimes, it's like listening to grumpy old philosophical men trapped in youthful bodies. Depending on the author's mood, it can go from simple boyhood innocence that is truly believable, to a mountain of bitterly cold logical rambling betraying an innocent setting.

* ItsQuietTooQuiet: Calvin's mom on a couple of occasions, has noted that if she doesn't hear from Calvin for a little while (one time she said in fifteen minutes, another time she said two), it means he's probably getting into trouble. She's always right with this assumption.

* IRejectYourReality: Calvin can be quotes thus: "It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept."
