  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A list of characters in Calvin and Hobbes The Series.



Protagonists

All

Calvin

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Pamela Segal

Cquote2.svg

The leader of the group. He's invented many weapons and gadgets that are usually of some use.

Cquote1.svg

"No one knows why his hair does that. Is it static electricity? Is it hair gel? No, probably not.

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Hobbes: You know, if you actually studied, you'd get a few things done school-wise.

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Hobbes: (to an evil voice) Well, we're here now, so what do you want?

Calvin: Hobbes, don't ask questions like that! Don't you ever watch those science fiction movies?

Cquote2.svg

Hobbes

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Tom Hanks

Cquote2.svg

Calvin's best friend. Has a penchant for running away from danger, at least until "Thunderstorm".

Socrates

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Ryan Stiles

Cquote2.svg

A tiger who looks exactly like Hobbes, except with red stripes on his tail. Also the weird one. Tends to be annoying.

Andy

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Andrew Lawrence

Cquote2.svg

Originally The Generic Guy of the team, Character Development made him evolve into the Only Sane Man.

Cquote1.svg

Hobbes: (discussing why Andy won't come out of his room) Maybe he's hiding something from us.
Socrates: What would he hide from us? He's not exactly known for having a personality here.

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

(trying to find Andy) "Well, [he] was never the talkative one. Admittedly, he's gotten better this season, but...

Cquote2.svg
  • The Stoic: The fact that he has no qualms about the fact that Calvin lives with a tiger is only one example of how open-minded he is. In fact, Word of God has said that it's that open-mindedness that allows him to take part in Calvin's adventures.

Sherman

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Colin Mochrie

Cquote2.svg

The Smart Guy. Something of a Jerkass as well.

Cquote1.svg
Cquote2.svg
  • Jerkass: Zig-zagged. He actually cares a great deal for Andy, and he and Calvin become friends later on. Still on bad terms with Hobbes and Socrates, though.
  • The Load: During "The Genius Hamster".
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Briefly forced to become one in "Time Terror" to sell... something.
  • Picky Eater: From "The Genius Hamster":
Cquote1.svg

(asking Hobbes to make him a sandwich) "Now cut the turkey thin, but not too thin. Now put the mustard on the turkey in a clockwise motion, and then place a slab of cheese on top. Pour the mayonnaise on top of that, but in a counterclockwise motion. Add an extra slice of turkey on top, and then place the second slice of bread on top, and make sure the two slices of bread are even."

Cquote2.svg

The MTM

Arguably the most useful of Calvin's inventions. Gained speech in "An MTM Episode".


Antagonists

All

Franklin J. Brainstorm

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Neil Crone

Cquote2.svg

A Mad Scientist. Very inept. Always shouts.

Jack T. Robot

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Michael Brandon

Cquote2.svg

A snarky robot. Not really evil, but he did have a Morality Dial (that was thankfully removed).

Sheila Brainstorm

Brainstorm's sister who thinks Calvin's an alien.

Jacqueline

Sheila's Distaff Counterpart to Jack.

Mother Brainstorm

The mother of the above two Brainstorms.

Electro

A Technopath that takes over Calvin's electronics twice.

Holographic Retro

After the real Retro was trapped on Galaxoid and Nebular's planet, he sent this hologram in his place.

Rupert and Earl

Two aliens out to get Calvin.

  • Aliens Speaking English
  • Artistic License History: The only reason they believe that Calvin is the Supreme Earth Potentate is because Galaxoid and Nebular told them. They steadfastly believe this to be true, despite all evidence to the contrary (including Calvin flat out telling them).

Rupert and Earl's Crew

A crew of harmless villains under the former two's command.

Jark

One of the monsters under Calvin's bed.

Dr. Thunderstorm

Brainstorm's Chaotic Evil brother that was freed by Shadow.

Shadow

A Killer Robot that was trapped in a chrome sphere and accidentally freed by a laser blast of Brainstorm's.


Other

Calvin's Parents

Cquote1.svg

Calvin's mom is voiced by: Jennifer Love Hewitt
Calvin's dad is voiced by: Bill Murray

Cquote2.svg

Calvin's parents.

Cquote1.svg

Dad: Come on, dear. You can drown your sorrows in the cider.

Cquote2.svg

Susie Derkins

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Dakota Fannings

Cquote2.svg

Calvin's neighbor. She is his age and goes to school with him. She is constantly being annoyed by him.

  • Aw, Look — They Really Do Love Each Other: When Calvin nearly drives himself insane trying to be good so that Karma won't hurt him, it's Susie who talks him down.
Cquote1.svg

Susie: Calvin, you live by your own rules! You make things up! You create! You destroy! You tease temptation! You do all sorts of horrible things, most of them to me, yes, but then there are days you do good all on your own! You shouldn't let something like Karma run your life! You need to be rude and nasty and gross and weird, so that you can be good on your own accord.

Cquote2.svg
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: While it is still downplayed like it was in the comic strip, Calvin and Susie have had the odd quasi-romantic moment.
  • Berserk Button: While she's harmless enough at face value, all it takes is Calvin throwing a water balloon or a snowball at her to unleash the wrath of hell upon him.
  • Repeat What You Just Said: Sometimes Hobbes will go off on a hypothetical romantic tangent about Calvin's supposed secret feelings for Susie. While the comic strip's Calvin would've usually started fighting him, this version of Calvin prefers the more subtle approach: "I'm sorry. What did you say?" in a dangerously low voice. Hobbes tends to shut up after that.
  • Tsundere: Type B

Moe

Cquote1.svg

Voiced by: Elizabeth Daily

Cquote2.svg

The Bully who is constantly harassing Calvin.

  • Dumb Muscle
  • Gang of Bullies: Moe has a gang sometimes.
  • Jerkass: Constantly and purely.
  • Karma Houdini: Frequently. Finally subverted on one occasion when Susie found out and tattled on him, and Miss Wormwood forced him to apologize to Calvin.
  • Stealth Insult: Calvin usually manages to whip these out at Moe.

Miss Wormwood

Calvin's teacher. She's constantly disciplining him.

  • The Alcoholic: Calvin says to Mr Spittle she still drinks Maalox right from the bottle.
  • Stern Teacher: She really seems to dislike imagination. Then again, Calvin's imagining stuff during class...

Rosalyn

Calvin's babysitter still appears from time to time.

  • Badly-Battered Babysitter: In her first appearance, Rosalyn finds herself involuntarily riding with Calvin and Hobbes in their wagon all across town!

Galaxoid and Nebular

Some aliens who appeared towards the end of the original strip. They keep in contact with Calvin and Hobbes during the series.

The Klein Family

A family of Inexplicably Identical Individuals. The only adults Calvin considers "cool".

Cquote1.svg

"Well, we have your standards. We got your whoopee cushions, we got your squirting flowers, we got your spinning bowties, we got regular ties that roll up like noise-makers, we got your trick wires, we got pies, we got joy buzzers, we got silly string, we got condiments, we got fake gum, water balloons, disguises and mustaches and roller skates and fake hands and fake thumbs and fake toes and a fake nose and wigs and exploding figs and bending twigs and fake wings and ding-a-lings and loads and tons of other things! We got yo-yo's with invisible strings! We got sunglasses with songs to sing! We got dental floss and balls to toss, action Diana Ross! We got magnets and fragments and flip flops and garden crops! We got worms in a bag! We got a suit with a tag! We have also a TV that doesn't change channels! Air conditioners stocked from air from our air conditioned air condition factory!"
(he then wipes sweat from his brow and gasps for air)

Cquote2.svg
  • Tough Room: Averted with the Klein at the carnival; his jokes are apparently uproarious.
