Development

In fall 2015, Bill Watterson was approached by Wes Anderson to make an animated series based off of ”Calvin and Hobbes”. He agreed, as long as merchandising was limited. Anderson then found Life is cruel Productions and it’s sister company Good Dog Animation Inc. in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, and teamed up with Paul Tibbitt. After two years of development, Animator Jake Racks released a sneak peek containing a clip from the episode The Brown Bag. The official pilot, New kid on the block, aired two months later.
