Opus and Bill the cat were from a strip called Bloom County drawn by
Berke Breathed. The strip that popularized "transmogrification"
was "Calvin and Hobbs" by Bill Watterson. Breathed gave up his
strip when the released that all the money from plush dolls were
going to his publisher, who owned the rights (or so the story
goes). Watterson gave up this strip when he discovered he already
had more money than he could image. Both great strips, but Calvin
and his tiger are still deeply missed.
