Calvin and the New Next Door Neighbour Transcript


  • This is the second episode of Calvin and Hobbes the Animated Cartoon Adventures.
  • Mr. Johnson would pay Dr. Brainstorm so he could have a gun that would transform Calvin into his good side five seasons later in The Behaviour Modification.
  • This episode reveals the appearance of the Bonus Box. Calvin only mentioned it in the comic. It is light blue, with a few yellow stars drawn on it.
  • It is odd that the bonus box and the Very Sorry song are still in the game, because according to Calvin in one strip that "you can't use the same rule twice".
  • Mr. Johnson not liking the Very Sorry song may be a reference to the MCL banning the song because is was so obnoxious to sing in an arena.
