The Calvin and Hobbes Wiki

Tommy Chestnutt's only mention

Tommy Chesnutt is a classmate of Calvin's mentioned in a single strip.


Calvin claims that Hobbes ate Tommy for making fun of his fondness for his stuffed companion; Hobbes did not refute the claim, and added that his young meal needed a bath.

The name Tommy Chesnutt comes from one of Bill Watterson's college friends, Tom Chesnutt (Chesnutt's name also made a cameo in one of Watterson's political cartoons).
