Calvin the Flea

Calvin the Flea is a minor alter ego of Calvin's. It appeared in a single Sunday strip.


In the strip, Calvin the Ant had decided, analogously to Calvin, to stop working for the colony (actually Calvin's family) and take time off. Calvin's mother scolded him for his lethargy, prompting Calvin to imagine himself as a parasite, living off his host's blood analogously to Calvin's reliance on his family.
