Funny Snowmen

My husband is a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan. Do you know that comic strip? Do you like it? I don’t care for it as much as my hubby does (I prefer ‘The Far Side’ by Gary Larson; now there’s some craziness), but I love the Calvin and Hobbes hilarious snowman cartoons. Do you remember them? Here are a few:




They are very funny, but what’s even better is when people create silly snowmen in real life like the ones below:







Aren’t these cool? Have you ever done something like this? I haven’t. And speaking of snowmen, I still haven’t built one like I said I’d do this winter. I must get to it as soon as the temperature is a little better. We certainly have enough snow for it.

  4. It is tooooo coooooollllllddddd to go out and build a snowman. We usually build one or two every year ourselves. Of course, we have to be careful because of doggy bombs. Ick. Not good for snow people...or the people rolling the snow people.

    My son read Calvin and Hobbes out loud to me every single morning from the time he was five years old until he was seven and it's still his favorite comics. Mine too and my husband's. I can't wait to see the film, Dear Mr. Waterson. Have you heard of it? I think it will be very interesting.

    I love these snowmen. They are great. I think Calvin made a scene involving a car and snowmen too, if I'm not mistaken.

    Stay warm and keep happy! Blessings, Bird

    1. That is really cool that your son did that! I haven't heard of that film. I'll have to check it out.

      I'm waiting for the weather to be a little better before I get out there and build a snowman. It's been quite cold, and the only thing you'll get out there is frostbite!

    1. That is cool! It's fun to see snowmen around your area.

  6. I discovered C&H when the boys were small. Of course, I was always laughing at what WASN'T written out, whereas the boys loved the hilarious, adventurous C and the hapless straight man H.

    I don't make snowmen, but I've been known to unleash the occasional snow angel, Martha :)

    1. Oh, snow angels! Not that is fun :) I haven't done that in years.

  7. These are so funny! I love the snowman crossing zone, and the big snow cat. A few years ago I made a snow cat. My husband said it looked more like a snow squirrel. We still joke about it. :-)

  8. The 'snowman culture'! lol
    Haven't made one in years.....bout time I'd say.
    Today's snow isn't the right kind, so will have to wait.

  9. I'm a HUGE Calvin fan. And often post their comics on my blog as well. Great stuff. Far Side is also killer. Can't go wrong with either.

  10. I think I have all of the Clavin and Hobbes books. Sometimes, even though I've read every cartoon a million times I read them again - and they still make me laugh! Love those 'real snow men. By the way have you seen that creepy car ad on tv with the evil snowmen? Eek!

    1. Is that the Nissan commercial? I've seen that one. Who would think that snowmen could become so evil? There goes childhood...LOL...

    1. Can you imagine having a kid like that in real life? Imagine all the stories you'd have to tell!

  14. All such cool, fun snowmen! :) I like the snowcat best!

  15. I've never followed comic strips that closely, but I also like Farside better than Calvin and Hobbes.

    I'm really impressed with the gambling snow-people. (They look like men, but I can't be sure.) One or two of them appear to be bluffing. Very fun.

    You always make me smile.
    Thank you, Martha.

  16. I enjoy Calvin and Hobbes. Funny, funny toon. Nope. Haven't built (or at least attempted to build) me a snowman since the age of 12. Those are really cool snowmen and snowcat. Groovey post. Cheers!!
