Calvin Hobbes Golf is based on Calvinball. Calvinball is a game played as a disorganized, seat of the pants, make it up as you go along, this is a once in a lifetime game. Calvinball is a creation of intelligence and non-skill rather than of dominance and athletic heroism.
Other kids’ games are all such a bore!
They’ve gotta have rules and they gotta keep score!
Calvinball is better by far!
It’s never the same! It’s always bizarre!
You don’t need a team or a referee!
You know that it’s great, ’cause it’s named after me!
— Calvinball theme song
