Strip by: Jamz64

SFX: CLICK {Negative Calvin is now Positive Calvin.}
Positive Calvin: Uh oh…
Positive Calvin: The sky is a pale blue! Calvin’s skin is a deep brown! Blue flowers are now yellow!
Positive Calvin: Every color is the opposite of what it should be!
Positive Calvin: Calvin has been transferred to a color film positive!
Positive Calvin: His only hope is to be processed by a 1-hour photo finisher! Developer! I need developer!
{The scene cuts to Negative Calvin, who is imagining all of this. Negative Calvin’s father is trying to take a picture of him.}
Negative Calvin’s dad: Doggone it, Calvin! That’s ANOTHER picture ruined! Can’t you look unpleasant for 1/500th of a second?!

The author writes:

I gave the original strip the negative effect in Pixlr. It didn’t make the negative parts positive like I hoped, but what can you do? Also, I was too lazy to edit the dialogue.

Original Calvin and Hobbes strip: 1989-07-02.
