* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Rosalyn. While Calvin's pranks at her expense are unjustified, she is a terrible babysitter, sending Calvin off to bed way too early just so she can talk to her boyfriend on the phone. It's almost as if she's ''begging'' Calvin to misbehave. However, his parents make it quite clear that she is the only one who can put up with Calvin long enough for his parents to go on a date (On the other hand, what's "too early" for a six-year-old's bedtime?)

* ToyShip: Calvin and Susie. It's not really central to the ship -- primarily because Calvin's still at the 'girls are icky' stage of childhood -- but it is hinted at. A popular bit of {{Fanon}} is that Calvin and Susie end up getting married when they're older and having kids of their own.

** [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1992/05/05 This strip]] uses Calvin's "Chewing" magazine subscription to poke fun at the concept of targeted marketing, with Hobbes dryly noting "as if advertising wasn't intrusive enough before." Two decades later, social media algorithms have made Internet ads more specialized and intrusive than ever.

* ValuesDissonance: In one comic, Calvin draws a squadron of B-1s nuking New York. No way they'd run that nowadays.

** In the arc where Calvin plays baseball at recess, Calvin considers dropping out and the coach tells him "Ok, quitter! Goodbye." These days, the coach would be catching a lot of heat and would likely lose his job for calling a six-year old a quitter.

** In one strip, Watterson takes a jab at comic book collectors of the early 90's. Just a year after the comic ended, his disdain of the short sighted comic collectors of the time became vindicated by the [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996 comic industry crash of 1996]], which was in part caused by the oversaturation of the market with worthless "collectors" comics.
