6-year-old Owen Lake was traveling with his family when he lost his beloved tiger Hobbes stuffed animal, based after the Calvin & Hobbes comic series. The kid’s lost Hobbes toy turned up at Tampa International Airport, but by the time staff found it Owen and his family was already in route to Houston, Texas.
Hobbes lucked out because the airport promised to keep him safe until his owner returned. Airport staff even took him on a fleet of awesome adventures where Hobbes got to see all sorts of cool behind-the-scenes parts of the airport.
While Owen was originally bummed about misplacing his stuffed animal he ended up lucky too. When he and his family returned to Tampa airport his stuffed animal was safely returned to him. Plus, airport staff awarded Owen with a photo album packed full of photos documenting Hobbes’ adventures while the two were separated.
