Hobbes' dad was once mentioned. He is mentioned after Calvin yells at Hobbes because his advice for avoiding Moe was "scramble like maniacs for the nearest tree". As Calvin complains, Hobbes quotes his dad saying "Of course, it didn't impress the ladies, however "No use impressing them and then getting killed" as my dad used to say." He is not mentioned again in the strip.

"It'll build character!"
