"Operation Kapow!" was a secret plan developed by Calvin and Hobbes, possibly during one of their G.R.O.S.S. meetings and detailed to the reader via a single Sunday strip which showed a map of their plan. Calvin was credited as genius/mastermind, and Hobbes as consultant/cartographer.


The map showed Calvin and Hobbes taking their sled to the top of a snow hill, sledding down at high speed, and navigating through the woods to evade enemies. They would then grab a bucket of snowballs from behind the "secret pine tree" and hit Susie with the snowballs while speeding by on their sled. They then planned to make a fast getaway by riding the sled up a snow ramp, over a deep trench and safely into their snow fort.

The plan was outlined by numbers.

They would have done this right away, but they had to wait for it to snow. Hobbes remained optimistic and added more spirals over Susie's head while they waited.

It is unknown if the plan was actually undertaken beyond the planning stage, and if so, whether it succeeded.
