** Calvin's parents can verge into this at times. On one hand, Calvin is really hyperactive and tends to get into trouble a lot which can justify his parents having little patience for his antics yet, on the other hand, they ''also'' tend to overreact at times at Calvin just being a normal kid.

** Some fans felt this way about Uncle Max, despite Watterson's regret at having introduced him. Some disagree with him and think that Max ''did'' bring something new to Calvin: an adult who regularly interacted with him at his level.

* FandomSpecificPlot: There are a lot of stories concerning what Calvin will be like as a teenager or adult. Either he has to deal with not having Hobbes around, or Hobbes is still around but his relationship with Calvin has changed due to Calvin's growing up. Occasionally, there are stories in which Hobbes ends up being passed down to one of Calvin's own eventual children.

to:

* FanPreferredCouple: Calvin and Susie, for obvious reasons. They actually seem to have and recuperate feelings for each other, but it was in a single strip were Calvin gave Susie a crummy Valentine, and creams him with a snowball. The thought bubbles reveal they are secretly pleased that the other "noticed."

*HoYay: Calvin and Hobbes are very close, though only in a best-friends sort of way. But then, there's the fact that them sharing a bed is a frequent topic...

* CriticalResearchFailure: Calvin has no interest in school, so his assignments usually end up being full of these. In one, he does a report on bats which states they're bugs, which is immediately refuted by his classmates (and provides the page image). Another is on the planet Mercury (he's supposed to be partnered with Susie for that-naturally they don't work well together). He does it all last minute, saying Mercury is named after the god of florists and bouquets as an explanation for why it's used as the FTD logo. It's actually a sign of their fast delivery, since Mercury is really the god of messages, among other things (not including florists or bouquets).

** In UsefulNotes/{{Portugal}}, it is also well known and cherished, especially for those who were young adults, teenagers and kids in the '90s (to the point that the newspaper, which was still in its infant years, was bought ''solely'' for the comic strip.) And most people don't know about the stickers, which is a good thing.
