I understand why Bill Watterson walked away from Calvin and Hobbes, but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish we still had the antics of the little boy and his tiger to read and laugh at.

Fortunately, Jim Frommeyer took it upon himself to recreate some of Calvin’s favorite snowman sculptures for us all to enjoy.

The cool thing is all of the models are real, no CGI snowmen to be found.  Once filmed, the color correcting, and animated snow particles were added, rendered, and posted on YouTube for us to enjoy.
