Calvin and Hobbes Snowmen (PG-13)
By Andrea Mercado
I remember spending every morning before running to elementary school cutting out Calvin and Hobbes comics from the newspaper. Filmmakers Jim Frommeyer and Teague Chrystie took their admiration a few steps further by creating models of Calvin’s horror snowmen and making a movie of them.
For those of you who are not so familiar with the glorious Calvin and Hobbes snowmen, or for anyone seeking a refresher, check out this website first: Calvin and Hobbes Snow Art Gallery
And then, if the cartoons haven’t scared you off, view the video – an artistic tribute to a beloved cartoonist. Warning – this is rated PG-13 due to some violent content, and may not appropriate for young viewers (or for anyone viewing them out of the Calvin and Hobbes context):
