Streaming Documentary Review | Dear Mr. Watterson
The story of one of the most influential cartoons of all time, Calvin and Hobbes, and the mystery of its reclusive creator, Bill Watterson. As the age of newspaper slowly faded away, few fought against the tide and keep the authenticity of their work intact. Hear from fans, fellow cartoonists and those in the licensing business about the amazing story of a one-of-a-kind creator and creation that refused to stick to the status quo and solidify itself as a masterpiece.
This film was a pleasure to watch as a fan of the comic series Calvin and Hobbes. The documentary is directed and narrated by a lifetime fan of the series so there’s much to relate to with the content. The interviews of celebrities and cartoonists elevate the film with the enormous amounts of praise and love they have for the series that it feels like a fan club of sorts. Unfortunately there aren’t any interviews with Bill Watterson himself which I was really hoping for.
