Catch a Tiger by the Tale

Calvin and Hobbes was a daily comic strip written and illustrated by Bill Watterson. The strip appeared in syndication on this day in 1985 and had a wildly successful run until December 31, 1995. Afterward, Watterson quietly withdrew from the public eye at the height of his career. Aside from an infrequent sign of his continued existence, he excels at confounding journalists and fans alike by enjoying a life of guarded anonymity. Despite their creator's reclusive nature, the irrepressible little fellow and his striped friend have firmly established a place in popular culture. That's a good thing, too because we can still learn a great deal from this duo.
