Calvin and Hobbes fan art exudes the charisma and charm of the beloved comic strip in ways you never imagined. Created by American cartoonist Bill Watterson, on November 18, 1985, its popularity grew after its first year of syndication and was soon published worldwide. However, after its conclusion in 1995, fans were left without any new tales from the lives of six-year-old Calvin and his stuffed tiger Hobbes. However, thanks to the creative minds of dedicated fans, they have continued their adventures with fan art of pop culture characters drawn as Calvin and Hobbes.

Though many artists have taken to drawing new comics that continue in the style of Watterson, crossover Calvin and Hobbes fan art reveals itself as a real gem of the Internet. From video games to throwback cartoons to popular TV shows, fans have taken the style of the original comic and added the perfect hint of pop culture perfection. Here is a collection of some of the best Calvin and Hobbes mashup fan art, each a friendly reminder that differences don't have to stop you from having fun.
