Readers of Bill Watterson's 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip probably remember the many gruesome snowman installations that Calvin created over the years. From a swimmer desperately trying to escape from snow sharks, to a deadly snow octopus, to scenes of violent snowman death, Calvin never ran out of ways to dismay his parents and neighbours while delighting the rest of us.

Now Jim Frommeyer and Teague Chrystie have created a holiday tribute to some of Calvin's greatest hits in the form of this gruesomely cheery video. Plus, click the link below to find out more about how they made the vid.
