If you grew up in the 80s or beyond, chances are the works of reclusive cartoonist Bill Watterson have had an impact on your childhood.

The creator of Calvin and Hobbes took his comic strip from phenomenal to legendary status by refusing the license the characters and drawings for commercial purposes, therefore guaranteeing that the strip remained pure and true to itself, instead of selling itself out. Now, a group of documentary filmmakers on Kickstarter are making a documentary about the meteoric impact that Calvin and Hobbes have made on the pop culture landscape. The filmmakers have already doubled their goal of $50,000, which means that Dear Mr. Watterson should get finished soon. Just the trailer for the documentary shows the power that the reclusive cartoonist’s work has had on celebrities, actors and other artists.

The world deserves to hear the story behind the beloved comic strip, so hopefully Mr. Watterson sees fit to take part in the film.
