I got a goal! OH, the score is oogy to boogy. I leady HAD oogy! You just ran into the invisible sector! You have to cover your eyes now, because everything is invisible to yoU! Invisible sector?? I didn’t know we had an invisible sector! Where is it? You can’t see it. It’s invisible. How do I know I went in it then? You can’t see anything, right? OK, so how do I get out? Somebody bonks you with the calvinball. I get another point! HEY! OW! WHY YOU… That was a rotten rule! I decree no more invisible sectors! … in fact, I’ll show YOU! YOU just ran into a vortex spot! You have to spin around until you fall down! Sorry, this vortex spot is in the boomerang zone, so the vortex turns to whoever calls it! YOU spin! THAT’S NOT FAIR! You know the calvinball rules. Yeah, yeah, anything we make up. Well, you’ll pay for this. This game lends itself to certain abuses. Guess how you get out of the boomerang zone! Calvin hits a badminton ball with a cricket racket bat against a tree. He and Hobbes both wear black eye masks. Hobbes says score’s oogy to boogy. Calvin claims he already had oogy. Calvin and Hobbes play Calvinball. Calvin holds a cricket racket bat and Hobbes a volleyball which will later turn out to be the Calvinball. They jump over cricket goals when Hobbes informs Calvin that he entered the invisible zone. Calvin has to close his eyes, which makes it difficult for him to leave the zone. Fortunately, Hobbes hits him with the Calvinball and therefore he can see again. Calvin gets mad and chases Hobbes. He declares the end of invisible zones and says Hobbes entered the vortex zone. Hobbes says it’s the boomerang zone and now Calvin has to spin. Calvin has to stick to the rules of Calvinball and spins. Hobbes says he should guess how to get out of this, holding the Calvinball.
Other kids’ games are all such a bore! They’ve got to have rules and they gotta keep score! Calvinball is better by far! It’s never the same! It’s always bizarre! You don’t need a team or a referree! You know that it’s great, ’cause it’s named after me! If you wanna…. Uh, feel free to harmonize with Hobbes on the rumma tum tums. This was a mistake. Calvin shows some neat dance moves while wearing a black eye mask with Hobbes. He sings a song on the greatness of Calvinball. It’s a poem. He asks Rosalynn to join him and Hobbes. Rosalynn does not think this was a good idea.
How can you not want to join, Rosalyn? You should be in the vortex zone!
