I think your overthinking it. It's just a cute cartoon taking a shot at Xbox Live. it's not "corrupting" Calvin and Hobbes.Krantos said:No.
No, No No No No.
See this is the problem I always have with people "Revisiting" classic cartoons. They always feel they have to make it darker. Like having Charlie Brown kill Lucy for pulling the ball away. Or Calvin's parents putting him on anti-psychotics.
The old strips' innocence is what made them good. Well, C&H was also good because of the way Calvin and Hobbes would tackle existential questions, but that's another story.
People using the characters like this is just stupid. It's basically saying "hurr, hurr, Hobbes is Swearing!"
The only time I've seen classic characters used well were those Bacon and Hobbes strips.
These Erin and Hobbes strips come across as the writers just saying "Hey LOOK! We're Using characters from another cartoon! Like Us because you like them! Do you like us yet?"
...then again, that's kind of what Crit Miss has been doing ever since Erin's hallucinations started. hmm...
