Calvin & Hobbes, Animated

The professional animator Adam Brown has done an excellent job with this wordless Calvin & Hobbes strip, but it mostly convinces me that an animated Calvin & Hobbes cartoon would probably add very little to these characters, already so brilliantly realized on the page by Bill Watterson. Is it just me?
