Eat the sugar bomb for the beanie

A series of three Calvin and Hobbes strips (re-run on the 25th, 26th, and 27th) in which Calvin undertakes to eat four boxes of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs to get a gee-whiz official beanie. A return to cartoonist Bill Watterson’s attacks on sugary breakfast cereals and the way they are marketed to children, especially through the stratagem of describing them as part of a healthful breakfast (in #2 below):


(#1) The seductive offer from the cereal of Satan


(#2) The jittery cost of accepting the offer; Satan’s rationalizations


(#3) Calvin’s failure to enlist his family in the scheme

Previously on this blog, in my 9/1/18 posting “Subscendence by sugar bombs”, four Calvin and Hobbes strips about sugar bomb cereals.
