Here's a fun little Calvin & Hobbes tribute video that centers on one of Calvin's alter egos, Spaceman Spiff. The character is a parody of Flash Gordon, and is an "interplanetary explorer extraordinaire," who explores the outermost reaches of the universe in a red flying saucer. He also had some really great phrases such as, "Poised precariously over a percolating pit of putrid pasta."
I grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes, it was just such a fun comic strip. If you're a fan as well, I'm sure you'll enjoy this flash animated tribute to Spaceman Spiff. It was created by Camilo Fernandez.
