The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki

One instance of the leaf pile. Coloring varies.

The leaf pile is a recurring character and an antagonist in Calvin and Hobbes. He was generally a result of Calvin's father spending a day raking all the leaves in the yard into a pile. 


When his dad wasn't around, however, the leaf pile would come alive and try to eat Calvin.

At least once, Calvin spread the leaves across the entire yard in order to vanquish the monster, making Calvin's father surprised and impetuous.

Several of these strips appeared in The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes and then It's a Magical World.

Some representations of the leaf pile are similar to the Yukbarf in design.
