Weirdos From Another Planet! (ISBN 0836218620) is the fourth Calvin and Hobbes printed collection. It was released in March 1990 by Andrews & McMeel and collects the strips published from February 22, 1988 to December 4, 1988, yet does not include November 27-30, 1988 (those strips were instead featured in The Revenge of the Baby-Sat). the Sunday strips were reprinted in color in The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes and The Complete Calvin and Hobbes.

The title of the book comes from an included story arc in which Calvin and Hobbes go to Mars on their wagon.

Some daily strips are printed out of chronological order.

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 a few pages.

The Sunday strip on page 87 (August 28, 1988) was redrawn to fit the format of The Complete Calvin and Hobbes hardcover (book 1, p. 478).  It appears (in color) in its original form also on page 213 of The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes and on page 126 of The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday Book.
