What If Calvin And Hobbes Was… Gritty?

Part of the beauty and majesty of Bill Watterson's classic Calvin and Hobbes is how childlike and innocent it all is. With the current penchant for "gritty" remakes of classics in Hollywood, what would happen if Calvin went that way?

It'll never happen, mind you -- Watterson is notably reluctant to have Calvin and Hobbes as anything except comic strips. Still, as a fan-made trailer, this is pretty impressive.
