** It's also entirely possible that the "Shady Acres" comic took place after the "forest" strips published after it. No one said ''any'' of the comics took place ''in order''.

** The entire joke of that story arc is that Calvin spent ''six weeks'' OBSESSING over one stupid toy, only to become ''immediately'' disappointed with it upon receiving it.

** My point of view is that Calvin tied up himself, if you look at the strip the rope looks a bit of a mess, to me it is perfectly reasonable that a 6-year old could tie up himself like that just by going around himself, when you've got a long, long rope it basically ties uf by itself, he just made a big mess and it was enough to tie him up well.

* How is it that Calvin can imagine himself piloting his toy planes, but was completely unable to come up with anything to do with his motorized beanie? Even after the initial disappointment that it didn't actually fly wore off, he saw zero potential in it?

** Probably because in the back of his mind, he knows he's just playing make believe and so he can't truly interact with him.

** Or if you accept the Hobbes-is-real version of things, Calvin is GenreSavvy enough to know that if he does something different at 8:30 than what he remembered himself doing when he came from 6:30, it will produce a time paradox and Bad Things will happen.

*** Wash is dead, remember? Unless there was some [[AppliedPhlebotinium]] that brought him back post-Serenity, NO.

* How does Hobbes's status as an endangered species prevent him from meeting babes? I heard that [[Franchise/TheSimpsons the ladies dig you when you're the last of something]].

** Here's how the time loop ultimately plays out.
*** 6:30 Calvin and 6:30 Hobbes travel to 8:30 to pick up the completed story from Calvin's Future Self.
*** 8:30 Calvin doesn't have the story, because two hours ago, he went to the future to get it.
*** After arguing for a while, both Calvin's realize that the reason the 8:30 Calvin doesn't have the story if because somewhere between 6:30 and 8:30, the 7:30 Calvin should have written the story, but didn't. (Most likely because, one hour ago, he went to the future to get it.)
*** 6:30 and 8:30 Calvin travel back to 7:30 to make that Calvin do the homework, while 6:30 and 8:30 Hobbes remain at 8:30.
*** At 7:30, the 6:30 and 8:30 Calvins try to force the 7:30 Calvin to do the homework, but the 7:30 Calvin points out that anything they do to him, they'll end up suffering themselves.
*** Meanwhile, at 8:30, the 6:30 and 8:30 Hobbeses write a story for Calvin, therefore changing history. When the 6:30 and 8:30 Calvins return, the 6:30 Calvin and Hobbes return to 6:30 with the written story.
