Hobbes and Me

This is the last in a series of eight endearing tributes to Bill Watterson’s much beloved daily comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes.” Each episode is a live action, verbatim re-creation of a classic strip. They’re very short and very watchable. And also, because everything is more appealing when it’s somehow related to hip-hop reimaginings of American history, the actor who plays Hobbes in this series is Daveed Diggs, who plays the Marquis de Lafayette in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash hit Broadway musical “Hamilton.” It all comes back to that, in 2016.
