The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki


The Motherly Alien is a friendly alien who, for some strange reason, lives on a hostile desert planet. Despite its ugly appearance, it is very hospitable, and it apparently welcomes visitors to the planet by giving them a meal. It brings Spiff a sandwich and some lemonade.


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