Safari Al is an obscure alter ego of Calvin's. He appeared once in a weekday strip involving Calvin's room resembling a jungle for being so messy. In it, Calvin took on the Safari Al persona, while his mother translated into a large, King Kong-like simian. In later strips where Calvin and Hobbes go exploring or digging, Calvin looks somewhat like his Safari Al alter ego.
