Best Calvin and Hobbes Story Arcs

Calvin and Hobbes was a comic strip that was written from November 18, 1985-December 31, 1995 by Bill Watterson. During their 10-year run, it focused on a precocious 6-year-old boy named Calvin and his imaginary tiger friend, Hobbes. Calvin had many interests (tigers, dinosaurs, alter egos, driving, Saturdays, dessert, summer vacation, etc.), he also hated a lot of things (school, baths, getting babysat by a teenage girl named Rosalyn, girls, etc.). Like any other comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes had story arcs, and this list will consist of some of my favorite story arcs. These are in no particular order in case you are thinking that some should be higher or lower on the list. If you do not like any of these story arcs listed below for any reason, then I respect your opinion.
