Calvin and Hobbes poster

Riding the wagon in real life in the television release poster of Calvin and Hobbes.

Calvin's wagon is a small red wagon that often gets driven over conveniently placed cliffs in the woods behind Calvin's house and wrecked crashing into the rocks or pools below. At one point, they (Calvin and Hobbes) crashed high in a tree where Calvin remarks that the view from up there is spectacular. Hobbesalways pushes, while Calvin steers. During a wagon ride, the two usually discuss about philosophical topics and the metaphors they used usually end up being intertwined with the conversation. Hobbes is usually listening or shouting things like "Tree!" or "Lake!" making Calvin offended.

It is one of their most important forms of transportation. The wagon was used to drive them to Mars once.

Calvin and Hobbes rode it again in Calvin Loses His Marbles, but falls down and lost his memory. They also rode in the television release poster of the Disney Channel Original Movie(picture).


During the winter, Calvin and Hobbes use a sled and a toboggan, as the wagon cannot work in the snow.
