Calvin & Hobbes took center stage when it first appeared in newspaper comics section across the U.S. in 1985. A decade later, Bill Watterson retired his strip and millions of readers felt the void. This documentary attempts to discover why this "simple" comic strip made such an impact on so many readers and why it still means so much to fans today.
