The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki


The Motherly Alien is a friendly alien who, for some strange reason, lives on a hostile desert planet. Despite the ugly appearance, she is very hospitable, and she apparently welcomes visitors to the planet by bringing them a meal with her. She gives Spiff a sandwich and some lemonade.


She has a large pear-shaped body with scale lines with insectoid arms and legs. She seems to have no visible eyes, but has a strong sense of direction, as she is clearly aware of Spiff's presence when she approaches him.
