Dan Vs.

Dan Vs.


Series creators Dan Mandel and Chris Pearson conceived the personalities of the main characters Dan and Chris by loosely basing them off of their own negative qualities.[1] Mandel's original idea was for the show to be a live-action sitcom, but new possibilities opened up once they started development for an animated series. Pearson once stated that he thought of the Dan character as "Calvin as a grownup, if his life had gone horribly wrong somewhere." (from Calvin and Hobbes)[1]
