** In one Sunday strip, Calvin hits Susie with a snowball from behind [[RunningGag (as per usual)]]; however, when Susie starts crying that the impact [[WoundedGazelleGambit knocked her eyeball out]], Calvin immediately panics and starts to look for it, offering a genuine apology.

** When describing Susie, Bill writes that after so many strips about boys created by men, he thinks a strip about a little girl, created by a woman, "could be great." It becomes {{Heartwarming In Hindsight}} when you consider that nowadays we have [[Comic/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn]], which many fans consider to be a {{Spiritual Successor}} to ''Calvin and Hobbbes''.

* During one comic, Calvin in a GrumpyBear mood says that he doesn't see how people can fall in love, and how people can stand each other. He and Hobbes are strolling through the woods in the middle of fall. Hobbes then points out the leaves, and says that it's more fun to watch them with someone than to watch it alone. Calvin after a beat agrees, but says he'd rather watch with a '''tiger'' than with a person. Hobbes asserts, "That goes without saying."
* During the arc where Calvin accidentally breaks his dad's binoculars, he panics about it the whole afternoon, and his conscience finally gets to him at the dinner table. Predictably, Calvin's Dad initially has a {{Freak-Out}}...until he realizes just how badly Calvin has been beating himself up. He not only accepts Calvin's apology, but also apologizes to Calvin for yelling at him, admitting that in the grand scheme of things, a broken pair of binoculars isn't the end of the world.

* This line from Calvin at the beginning of the Raccoon arc.arc, where they find the injured raccoon and decide to get Calvin's mom:



* The strips right at the end and after the Raccoon Story line. This line is either this or TearJerker.

to:

* The strips right at the end and after the Raccoon Story line. This line, where Calvin and Hobbes talk about what happened, and Hobbes promise. The following line is either this or TearJerker.TearJerker since it's after the raccoon dies, and Calvin starts to CryCute on hearing the news.



* During that scene, Calvin comes running to his dad as soon as he wakes up to check on the racoon. His dad, for once not in a sarcastic or bitter mood, breaks it to Calvin gently that the raccoon has died, and tries to comfort him. When Calvin says the above line, his dad has the saddest look, knowing how Calvin feels.



* One storyline has Calvin coming down with a bad case of the stomach flu. When his mom goes to check on him in the morning, she mentions that she's going to have to call the doctor, and Calvin won't miss school because it's Saturday. Calvin's responses? A weak "Okay" and "I know." The last panel is a visibly panicked Mom running to the phone to call the doctor. Even though Calvin normally putting up a fuss about the doctor and being sick on weekends can drive Mom crazy, she still realizes that if her son's not reacting that way, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness something's wrong]].

Added DiffLines:

* The fact that Bill credits his parents as inspirations for Calvin's parents. He confirms in the Tenth Anniversary book that yes, his dad would take the family out on miserable camping trips, bike in the snow, and eat oatmeal. He also regrets only showing Calvin's mother when she has to handle Calvin nonsense in the middle of her painting.
* In the tenth anniversary collection, Bill includes a photograph of his cat Sprite, the real life inspiration for Hobbes, in the introduction.
* The fact that in the original comic Calvin was going to be the main character's younger brother. In that world, Calvin had an older brother, which means his parents weren't too frustrated about having two children.

*** There's some Fridge heartwarming as in the comic Susie saw Hobbes as a stuffed toy like everyone else. Years later she finally learned to see him as Calvin does

* In one weekly-edition strip, Calvin is looking out the window at a raging snowstorm. "The roads are a mess! [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1993/01/01 I hope Dad makes it home OK."]] Fortunately, Dad's fine. He's just in denial about bicycle season being over.

** In the last panel, Calvin and Suzie are looking out at Hobbes, yet he's not just a stuffed animal. Think about that...
