Do you remember when the Calvin & Hobbes comic strips was still in the newspaper? And the books were coming out? The first time I saw Calvin & Hobbes snowmen with their über-personalities, I was hooked on interesting snowpeople!
The YouTube video was made by by Jim Frommeyer, Teague Chrystie – with the inspiration of Bill Watterson, of course.
I still think Calvin created the most inspired and clever snowmen I ever saw! My nephew built a few scary snowmen in the front yard inspired by the books. I created some scary snowmen out of birchbark and craft supplies. One of them definitely was carrying his own head under his arm!
I’m looking forward to seeing some cool snowmen show up on the news what with all the snow that has just been dumped on everyone!
