Fanfic: The Calvin, Hobbes, and Paine Show

The Calvin, Hobbes, and Paine Show is a Calvin and Hobbes fanfic, written by CalvinValjean in early 2013.

In an alternate universe of sorts where Calvin and Hobbes was a television show, what would happen if it didn't stop when Bill Watterson left? The answer: a drastic Retool into a Variety Show, with many changes occuring, including the addition of Calvin's baby sister Paine and an abundance of Special Guests. Despite the Seasonal Rot, the show (now The Calvin, Hobbes, and Paige Show) still continues on to this day on popularity alone.

The story itself focuses on Calvin, now a bitter actor who regularly smokes weed between skits and believes that Watterson leaving was the point where the show jumped the shark. Now, however, he finds himself wondering wherever Watterson went to, and he'll soon find an answer.
