Created by Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes have long been a mainstay in American newspapers, and have been published in syndication since the cancellation of the strip in Telling the tale of a hyperactive, precocious six year old boy, Calvin, and his laconic, anthropomorphic stuffed tiger, Hobbes. Hailed as being interesting and complex enough for adults, but containing humor and wit that a child could understand, it was a breakthrough cross-generational strip that pleased both demographics without becoming patronizing or pretentious. The inception of the strip came while Watterson was working at an advertising firm, and was cartooning in his spare time. Rejected numerous times, he was finally picked up by Universal Press Syndicate after modifying the strip he was writing to better reflect the popularity of two minor characters,the titular Calvin and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes. First published in , it rose to become one of the most popular comic features in its medium, and has been reprinted in syndication in hundreds of publications. He is depicted as a typical six-year-old boy, rambunctious, imaginative and mischievous.
