Calvin In Tiger Form 2

Calvin in Tiger Form appeared in a 1988 story arc.


Calvin tried to assimilate the lifestyle of tigers to avoid the responsibilities of being a kid. To do so, he changed his appearance somewhat with makeup and a costume. He later found the life of a tiger to be a lot different than he expected, and ultimately decided to be a kid again after he found out that they're an endangered species.
