The reason why it’s a good thing a “Calvin & Hobbes” movie never happened is that the comic was constantly evolving without any form of an ending. In the comic itself, “there was no set story — Calvin and Hobbes existed in an endless, uncharted world where anything could happen.” The creators would toy with different ideas but eventually discard them before moving on to something new.
Due to this lack of an ending and strange unpredictability, it’s best that the movie never got made because there would be no need for one! There won’t be any satisfaction or closure in watching a story already done. It could have been fun to watch Bill Watterson himself direct though…
Introduction to The Calvin & Hobbes
Calvin, a six-year-old boy, and his stuffed tiger Hobbes are the main characters in the comic strip. These two friends have many adventures in their suburban neighborhood of “Maple Forest.”

Story of The Calvin & Hobbes
What’s one of the most memorable comic strips in history? For some, it might be Peanuts, Garfield, or even Spiderman. But for many others, the answer is Calvin and Hobbes.
Created by Bill Watterson in 1985, this comic strip became popular over ten years before it came to an end in 1995. Because the author retired from cartooning after receiving unfavorable comparisons between his work and other comic strips.
Bill Watterson was born in Washington, D.C. in 1958 and grew up in Chagrin Falls, Ohio (Gross). After graduating from Kenyon College with a degree in political science, he worked as an editorial cartoonist for the Cincinnati Post.
He later became the staff artist at the Cincinnati Times-Star before he decided to leave his job and move to Cleveland, where he began writing Calvin and Hobbes. It was during this time that Watterson began working on a comic strip which he planned to submit to syndicates. Also, as part of his application for a post-graduate program at the Cleveland Institute of Art (Peterson).
