The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki
Calvin of the Future

Calvin of the Future is a minor alter ego of Calvin's. He appeared in one Sunday strip as the resident of a futuristic version of his house.


Calvin of the Future here lived in a stereotypical, Jetsons-like projection of the future, where he was tended to by machines and lunar shuttles were available to office workers. However, Calvin still had to attend school outside of his house, in line with past futurists' inability to predict the development of communications.

Here, Calvin and his family dressed in futuristic, garish clothing. The tone of the strip mirrored the "kitschy" projections of 1960s popular culture.
