Santa Claus appears and is referenced several times in Calvin and Hobbes. He is most prominently referenced when Calvin debates how good he should be at Christmastime. Calvin also imagines Santa Claus giving destructive presents to bad children and clothes to the well-behaved, leading to Santa's first full-body appearance in the strip. Also, Calvin pictures Santa ranking Calvin's deservedness of presents based on evidence and accounts. In one strip, as Calvin snowballs Susie, she mentions Santa, and Calvin pictures the face of an angered Saint Nick frowning down at him.
