Something Under the Bed is Drooling (ISBN 0836218256) is the second Calvin and Hobbes printed collection. The book was released in April 1988 by Andrews & McMeel and collects the strips published from August 18, 1986 to May 22, 1987.

Some of the non-strip art in this collection is NOT included in The Complete Calvin and Hobbes hardcover, especially the filler vignettes at the bottom of several pages.


The namesake of the "Something Under the Bed Is Drooling" comic book.

The title of the book comes from a single Sunday strip in which Calvin tricks the monsters under his bed into drooling hungrily, thus revealing them. This comic is the first one featured in the book.

Something Under the Bed is Drooling includes a foreword by political cartoonist Pat Oliphant.
