Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Charles Monroe Schulz (November 26, 1922–February 12, 2000), the only child of a Saint Paul, Minnesota barber, wrote and drew Peanuts for 49 years, 3 months and 1 day. The stars of the strip are a boy named Charlie Brown, whom Schulz named for a fellow instructor at the Art School of Minneapolis, and his pet beagle Snoopy.One of the most popular and influential Newspaper Comics of all time, Peanuts was introduced on October 2, 1950. The strip had its origins as a successor to Li'l Folks, a weekly feature that Schulz had drawn for his hometown newspaper in the late '40s. Peanuts ended its long newspaper run in 2000, with the final weekday strip being published on January 3. The final Sunday strip ran on February 13 of that year... which, as it turned out, was one day after Charles Schulz died in his sleep at the age of 77. Since then, the comic has kept a place in many newspapers by way of reruns.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })It launched the franchise of the same name.In 2011, Boom! Studios began producing a series of Peanuts comic books (as part of the KaBOOM! Comics line), featuring new content as well as old strips. Peanuts comic stories had been previously commissioned for Dell Comics in the late '50s and early '60s.The complete Peanuts comic strip archive can be viewed at GoComics.com. See also the official Peanuts web site. Fantagraphics Books began publishing a multi-volume series collecting the strip's complete run in dead-tree format in 2004; the series, which encompasses 26 volumes, was finished in 2016.

Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_10dcbe05
comment
Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Linus and Lucy are practically the sibling Trope Codifier, as perhaps best illustrated in the strip where Linus encourages a gloomy Lucy to count her blessings. When she demands to know what blessings he thinks she has, he replies, "Well, for one thing, you have a little brother who loves you." She stares at him for a beat panel, then hugs him and bursts into tears. This goes for the whole gang. If something happens to Charlie Brown, Lucy's a nervous wreck. If something happens to Lucy, it's Schroeder who suffers. And, though Snoopy drives the kids up the wall, everyone is sad when he's not around. Schulz himself probably said it best: One series of strips had Charlie Brown sent to the hospital for unknown reasons and Lucy was a complete nervous wreck the whole time, so much so that she actually swore that she'd let Chuck kick the football the next time around. And she actually did. Partly due to Linus's telling her that you can't break a promise you've made to a sick person, but nonetheless. Unfortunately, Charlie Brown fails to actually hit the ball and accidentally kicks Lucy in hand so hard that she ends up needing a cast for it.

Blind Without 'Em: Marcie was once told by Peppermint Patty that she would look more sophisticated with her glasses up on her forehead, resulting in her bumping into walls, a lamppost, etc. Marcie noted that "Before I became sophisticated, I almost never had headaches."

Tempting Fate: In one storyline, Linus is running for class president with Charlie Brown as his running mate. After some very rousing speeches, it looks like Linus has the election in the bag. During his closing speech, Lucy and Charlie Brown watch in the audience, and Lucy notes that there's no way they could lose, unless Linus says something incredibly stupid. Linus picks that very moment to talk to the student body about the Great Pumpkin and promptly gets laughed off the podium.

In the early '70s, Lucy went so far as to withdraw from Charlie Brown's baseball team because she felt baseball was degrading to women as a male-dominated game. Also an example of Ripped from the Headlines.

Only Six Faces
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_18a84025
comment
Only Six Faces: All the human characters have almost identical faces and the exact same body shape. This also resulted in a bit of Generic Cuteness, as in a few strips, Peppermint Patty worries about how she has a "big nose" and is "plain looking", but she doesn't really look too different from anyone else.

Comic-Book Time
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_1989b0c
comment
Comic-Book Time: Characters grow up, but reach a certain cap. Lucy is introduced as a toddler; Schroeder, Linus, and then Sally and Rerun are all introduced as babies. They grow up and eventually reach or become within a few years of Charlie Brown's age. Charlie Brown himself also aged somewhat over the course of the strip; he stated that he was four in a 1950 strip, six in a 1957 one, and eight and a half in a 1979 one. The strip makes fifty years worth of contemporary cultural references, running the gamut from Patti Page in 1953 to Harry Potter in 1999, all without anyone reaching their ninth birthday. The strip eventually stopped mentioning specific years, but this went on long enough that it started to get weird: for example, in the late sixties Lucy is still referring back to events in 1954 and naming the year, yet the characters clearly haven't aged in time with it.

The character José Peterson represented a Melting-Pot Nomenclature joke at the time, as the idea of someone with a Swedish father and Mexican mother seemed like a bizarrely unlikely combination - it wouldn't be seen as that remarkable in the modern US.

comment
And This Is for...: In Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, when Linus is unable to give his candy to Miss Othmar because she left with her boyfriend, he feels so upset that he goes up onto a bridge and starts throwing off the candies one by one (Snoopy and Woodstock both catch the candies in their mouths and eat them). As he throws each piece of candy off the bridge, he says things that start with this trope: In a 1959 storyline, Linus threw rocks into a vacant lot as a "release for [his] pent-up emotions": "This is for all the nasty things they said about George Washington! THIS is for people who hate little kids! And THIS is for people who kick dogs! THIS IS FOR HOT SUMMER NIGHTS! AND THIS IS FOR COLD WINTER MORNINGS! AND THIS IS FOR LIES AND BROKEN PROMISES! [to Charlie Brown] Do you have any requests?" Even Schroeder got in on the action, adding, as Linus was about to throw another rock: "THIS is for people who don't like Beethoven!" Linus repeated, "YEAH! THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE BEETHOVEN!" as he threw the rock, then paused in amazement at what he had just said.

Those Two Guys
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_1c79ae8c
comment
Those Two Guys: Although Patty and Violet were originally the primary female characters in the strip, both of their personalities were fairly generic. Once Lucy arrived their role became limited to tormenting Charlie Brown (and occasionally others) for sport. The two were generally seen as a pair, and when seen apart, they were usually playing Straight Man to another character. Not much was seen of them after the 1970s. Patty ironically started out as part another "those two guys" pair, as far as as Patty and Shermy being a couple in the first couple months of the strip.

Fake-Hair Drama: Invoked twice with Peppermint Patty choosing to wear a wig. In a 1974 story arc, she gets a tall, curly wig to wear to an ice skating competition she's entered after Charlie Brown's barber father gives her a boy's haircut by mistake; in the end, after it turns out she's made a mistake and entered a roller skating competition, she gives the wig to her coach (Snoopy) as payment for her skating lessons. In a 1988 story arc, she wears a wig for her school class picture that's so big it ends up obscuring the faces of several classmates, including Marcie, much to the anger of her classmates' mothers. Patty, pleased with how she looks, decides to wear the wig every day from now on, but finally gets rid of it when another kid insults her appearance and she retaliates by stuffing the entire wig into his mouth.

comment
Breaking the Fourth Wall: In an early strip, Schroeder plays a note on his piano, then runs over to Charlie Brown. Schroeder did one in Mar 16 1997, talking about the Carnegie Hall concert with Lucy. Again with Schroeder in strips of him playing his piano with music notes over it. Snoopy would often interact with said music notes, such as shoving them aside so he could lie on the piano, slipping himself in between the bars, using it as a bowling lane and striking the notes down like pins, etc. Schroeder also once weaponized this against Lucy, making the music notes appear and shove her off the piano.

Aborted Arc
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: Frieda's cat Faron only appeared for a few strips before Schulz realized that since Snoopy didn't speak in words, the only way to have him interact with Faron would be to have them think at each other (as Snoopy would later do with his siblings). Also, by his own admission, Schulz looked at his drawings of Faron and realized uncomfortably that he couldn't draw cats very well. When he got rid of the cat, his only regret was naming it after Faron Young, his favorite country singer. In the late 1960s, Schulz would introduce the unseen, (originally) unnamed "The Cat Next Door", and was much more pleased with the results. What had been intended as a lengthy – possibly months-long – arc with Linus and Lucy's family moving away came to a very sudden end because fans objected.

As the Good Book Says...
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_2439b588
comment
As the Good Book Says...: Linus is frequently given to quoting Scripture. Sometimes other characters also do it. In one strip Sally asks Charlie what all the "John 3:16" signs people are holding up at a football game mean. When he tells her about the reference she says, "Oh. I always thought it was a reference to John Madden." Another strip had a baseball game devolving into a extended discussion on the book of Job, with each character offering up interpretations that fit with their personality.

Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Lucy often makes wild, ridiculous claims and then laughs Charlie Brown to scorn for talking sense. This bothers him to the point of feeling terribly ill. The song "Little Known Facts" from You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown covers how seemingly uneducated Lucy is. Snoopy, especially when he lectures the Beagle Scouts about nature.

Saw "Star Wars" 27 Times: A Sunday Strip from the early 1970s saw Snoopy (as Joe Cool) remark, "I see they're showing Citizen Kane again… I've only seen it 23 times." It later became something of a Running Gag to have a character keeping track of how many times he/she had seen Citizen Kane. And then there was Schroeder's response to Lucy asking him if his grandfather had fought in World War I: "No, but he's seen Victory at Sea twelve times!"

Mythology Gag: The iPhone game "Snoopy's Street Fair" reintroduces Faron (Frieda has a cat-petting booth), depicts Lydia running a "Guess the Name" game, and shows Emily selling dance supplies and Shermy selling root beer as in this extremely early strip. All of these jokes probably won't be picked up on by casual Snoopy fans.

Community-Threatening Construction: There's a series of strips from the 1960s (during the height of the Interstate building boom) involving a proposed freeway that would go right through Snoopy's doghouse (insert your own Fridge Logic here). The sequence ends with the revelation that the freeway isn't being built until 1967.

comment
Non-Indicative Name: No, none of the characters is named "Peanuts". The name was assigned due to Executive Meddling, apparently by someone who assumed it was a slang term for kids. Schulz originally wanted to call it "Lil' Folks" (the title of the local strip he'd already drawn for a few years in St. Paul), and was none too happy with the title change, fearing that readers would assume "Peanuts" was the name of the lead character (which early on, they did).note  Though he wrote later that "Lil' Folks" was "admittedly not much better."

Lampshaded in one strip (which is also the page image) when Lucy asks Charlie Brown if he thinks her eyes are beautiful, and he replies, "Yes, they look like little round dots of India ink!" Lucy was actually an aversion in her earliest appearances, when she was depicted as a toddler with prominent Sphere Eyes. Eventually, she (and Linus, and Rerun) were usually shown with small lines on the sides of their eyes to give them a distinctive look from the other characters.

Hidden Badass
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_2a19090b
comment
Hidden Badass: Linus, of all people. When Charlie Brown was crying as a bully was attacking The Little Red-Haired Girl, then we see Linus using his blanket as a whip in the air, he goes off-panel and we see the same sound effect of the blanket-whip. Poor bully... In an earlier strip, when Roy advised Linus to put his blanket away at camp so as not to be teased by the other kids, Linus used his blanket as a whip to strike a twig off a tree before remarking smugly to a stunned Roy, "They won't tease me more than once." In a 1967 storyline, Lucy hides the blanket from Linus for two weeks (after he'd pledged to give up the blanket if blanket-hating Grandma would give up smoking), then brings it out to throw it into the trash burner. After she's already thrown the blanket in, Linus snatches it back and delivers an epic tell-off to Lucy. Charlie Brown, who witnesses the incident, even applauds him afterward. And the blanket itself, in a 1965 storyline in which it struck back at Lucy for her years of attempting to get rid of it. It frightened Lucy so much she was afraid to go home at night or be alone in the house with the blanket. Also applies with Marcie, as she slugged Thibault for making sexist remarks about women and later attempted to run out onto a frozen lake to save Peppermint Patty from being harassed by bullies (although she never made it, as she slipped, fell and knocked herself unconscious).

Sadist Teacher
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_2a6a8e89
comment
Sadist Teacher: Charlie Brown's teacher makes him read War and Peace over the Christmas break in the New Year's special. This is a novel of old Russia that's over a thousand pages long in most editions. And good ol' Charlie Brown is 8. What's even worse is that nobody else seems to have to read it. Even Linus, who is explicitly in the same class (and was sitting behind Charlie Brown when the assignment was given) is never shown so much as picking up the book. Either the teacher is such a sadist she only gave Charlie Brown that assignment, or he's the only one who bothered to actually do it (and got a D-). In the original comic, the book is Gulliver’s Travels - which is around a fifth of the size but still fairly scary for an eight-year-old. However, everyone else finishes the assignment early in the break where as Charlie Brown does it at three in the morning the day it's due. The fact that his paper was a last-minute rush job (and probably done while sleep-deprived, if the look on his face on the way to school is an indicator) whereas everyone else got it done properly was probably the determining factor in his just-above-failing grade. Peppermint Patty had a couple of scary assignments also. One test: "Explain World War II." Patty (incredulous): "Explain World War II!?" Last panel, the rest of the assignment: "Use both sides of the paper, if necessary." In one strip from 1988, Patty's teacher assigns the class to read the first 35 chapters of Anna Karenina by the end of the week. However, all it takes is Patty yelling, "What? WHAT? WHAT?!" progressively louder to make the teacher change her mind. Sally was once asked to factor a pretty scary math problem that shouldn't show up until Algebra I in 1974.

Limited Wardrobe
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_2a7e7af1
comment
Limited Wardrobe: Most of the characters have these, with Charlie Brown's yellow-and-black zig-zag sweater in particular becoming iconic. Although the wardrobes used to be much more limited; Linus became famous in a red-and-black striped tee, Peppermint Patty in a green one (plus flip-flops), and the other girls in color-coded dresses with puffed sleeves and a bow sash. In the early 1970s, Sally began appearing in shirts and pants as often as in her trademark blue-with-black-polka-dots dress, and Schulz would drop the 'girls in dresses, boys/tomboys in shorts or pants' meme completely by the end of the '80s. Enforced almost absurdly in It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown. The kids are in their default outfits during the football game; the only concessions to football are the helmets, puffier shoulders suggesting pads, and cleats. Then again, this school obviously couldn't afford other football luxuries, like coaches, or any officials ... or a team doctor ... and apparently a band member called in sick ... there's a cheerleader missing, too ...

Chain Letter: Charlie Brown got one in a 1967 story arc. He ultimately decided to break the chain and ripped the letter into shreds - and immediately afterward was drenched in a sudden downpour. Two decades later, Lucy sends chain letters to everyone on Charlie Brown's baseball team, thinking they'll have good luck (and maybe win a game) if no one breaks the chain. When they lose anyway, she blames Charlie Brown for breaking the chain.

Eskimos Aren't Real: Lucy once spent several strips mocking Charlie Brown for telling her that birds fly south for the winter: "In all my life, Charlie Brown, I have never met anyone with an imagination like yours!" When Chuck insisted, and also added that they fly north during the summer, Lucy sarcastically retorted that they must fly east during the spring and west during the fall. Then she pressed the issue further with "Chickens are birds, aren't they?! You never see a chicken flying south for the winter, do you?! CHICKENS ARE BIRDS, AREN'T THEY?!" Eventually Lucy learned (from a third party) that Charlie Brown was right about (some) birds flying south for the winter, and had to eat crow.

Full-Name Basis: Charlie Brown, obviously, to everyone except Peppermint Patty (who calls him "Chuck"), Marcie ("Charles"), and Snoopy ("the round-headed kid", because he doesn't remember Charlie Brown's name). Since you don't call your own family members by by your own last name, Sally calls him "big brother." Although Sally did refer to her own brother as "Charlie Brown" in some early strips after she first began talking, and Peppermint Patty also called him Charlie Brown in some of her early appearances. Peppermint Patty is also unusual in calling Lucy "Lucille." Subverted in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Lucy, for the first and only time, calls Charlie Brown "Charlie" when she gives her theory on how Christmas is a racket controlled by a syndicate. It also happened a few other times in the early TV specials.

When It Rains, It Pours: Rain in the comics is truly a black line-y torrential downpour. Schulz himself wrote that his taste for drawing this kind of rain originated from a pen test cartoonists used; one very thin line, one in-between line, and a thicker line. These three lines in droves represents rain in the comic strip.

Shipper on Deck: Sally, to Charlie Brown and Marcie. Alhough she does it with her usual lack of grace and sensitivity: Linus ships Charlie Brown and the Little Red-Haired Girl, resulting in him having an utter Freak Out at Charlie Brown for not having the courage to speak to her before she moves away. However, his own penchant for the Red-Haired Girl has occasionally caused him to sabotage his own ship. Peppermint Patty shipped Snoopy/Marcie for a while, since she thought Snoopy was a human being. Marcie used to ship Charlie Brown/Peppermint Patty. It was later revealed that she liked Charlie Brown herself, but figured he'd never go for her because she wore glasses. In the TV special You're In Love, Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty tried to set Charlie Brown and Lucy up on a Blind Date. Charlie Brown assumed Patty was trying to get him together with the Little Red-Haired Girl; we don't know for sure but we could assume Lucy assumed Patty was setting her up with Schroeder. When Charlie Brown and Lucy saw each other, they immediately shouted in unison, "YOU??? BLECCHHH!!!" Charlie Brown later returned the favor in a 1980 storyline, setting Peppermint Patty up on a blind date to a Valentine's Day disco dance. Patty wasn't too thrilled when she found out who her date was (Pig-Pen), but surprisingly, the two of them hit it off.

The Unintelligible: Every adult, ever. An exception: Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back) had two intelligible adults, for plot reasons (namely, the kids' teacher in their class in France, and the Baron who owns the Chateau Mal Voisin), but it was toyed with earlier in the movie when British people talking to the kids speak a language that is intelligible to the audience but not to the main characters. And apparently it works both ways: Also, You're in the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown has an intelligible announcer/narrator. As did She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown. Snoopy's Reunion featured the appearance of the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm owner, and It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown had a number of teenagers/adults in the disco where Snoopy goes. Woodstock's chirpings are unintelligible to the reader/viewer, but apparently not to Snoopy.

Out of Focus: This started to happen to Schroeder sometime in the '80s. Also, Sally and Linus fell victim of this trope in the '90s, when Rerun gained more prominence. Then, of course, there's Shermy, Patty, and Violet, who were major characters initially but Demoted to Extra by the end of the '50s.

Charlie Brown was a lot more confident and assertive, filling the role of The Prankster and (comparatively) the Tagalong Kid as opposed to a perpetually depressed Butt-Monkey. His shirt also lacked its trademark zig-zag during the first two months of the strip's run.

Wolverine Publicity: The special It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown stars Snoopy's brother, Spike, and Charlie Brown himself only gets a small cameo. Similarly, What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown! centers around Snoopy, with Charlie Brown only appearing at the beginning and end. He also only appears briefly in the Peppermint Patty and Marcie-centric She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown.

The Coconut Effect
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_347fef9a
comment
The Coconut Effect: At Schulz's insistence, the characters in the Christmas Special were voiced by actual children – some of them very young kids who couldn't even read well and thus had to learn their lines phonetically and recite them one at a time, which gave their reading a curiously stilted quality. This style became a part of the Peanuts tradition and continued even as the kids aged (and were replaced by new sets of kids, an increasing number of whom would be working child actors).

Gratuitous French
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_34f8042a
comment
Gratuitous French: The Flying Ace doesn't know how to speak French, which exasperates him when Marcie and Eudora do. The above instances are often played for laughs, but in Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back!), Marcie is fluent enough in French to act as an interpreter for her friends. In a 1984 storyline, Peppermint Patty goes to France with her father for the summer (on the school psychologist's recommendation since Patty was depressed over being held back a grade). In post cards back home, she proudly tells Marcie and Charlie Brown that she's learning to speak French. But in Patty's world, fluent French is "Bonjour, kid!" or "Garcon, junk food, s'il vous plait!"

Brilliant, but Lazy
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_355007c3
comment
Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite his intelligence and wit, Linus is an average student at best - several storylines in the early and mid-1960s dealt with Linus's parents' and teachers' disappointment over his poor grades and/or failing to make the honor roll, since he has such great potential. In Linus's own words, "THERE'S NO HEAVIER BURDEN THAN A GREAT POTENTIAL!" A big part of the problem, though, seems to be that he's just not motivated, since he often makes up excuses to get out of doing his homework or studying for tests. Although another explanation for Linus's poor grades may be that he doesn't do as well in school without his security blanket. In a 1962 strip, Linus explains that having his blanket at school "calms [him] down, and helps [him] to get better grades," and went on to add, "Nobody laughs at a straight A average!" However, in a later storyline, Miss Othmar forbade Linus to bring the blanket to school.

Runaway Bride: In the cartoon special Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown, Snoopy is all set to get married to a dog named Genevieve when Lucy soon arrives with news that the bride-to-be has just run off with a golden retriever. Snoopy is heartbroken at first, but soon lightens up at the prospect of remaining a bachelor, and enjoys the wedding cake with Woodstock. In the comic strips the special was based on, it was Spike who ran off with the unseen bride. A week later, Snoopy received a letter from Spike saying that she had run off again, this time with a coyote.

Mad Libs Catchphrase: Snoopy's preferred second line for his novels, after "It Was a Dark and Stormy Night," is "Suddenly, a shot rang out!" However, usually with prompting from Lucy, he can vary the things that rang out. For example, when she suggests he write a romance, he changes the line to "Suddenly, a kiss rang out!" And when she suggests he write a political novel, the line becomes "Suddenly, a vote rang out!"

Something Completely Different: In 1988 the syndicate allowed Schulz to ditch the strict four-panel format and gave him greater flexibility for the daily strips. After that he used a three-panel format as his base but frequently played around with it. He especially liked doing single panels, sometimes with no dialogue, even occasionally with captions a la The Far Side.

Noodle Incident: A 1965 storyline involved Snoopy being invited back to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm to give a speech, but apparently chickening out along the way and hiding out in a tree (until the falling leaves of autumn exposed his hiding place). A few days later, Charlie Brown asked Snoopy to tell him what had happened on the way to the puppy farm to give Snoopy "cold paws," and Snoopy responded by screaming "AAUGH!" and fleeing. The incident was never discussed again. We also never learn what happened to Snoopy in his appearance before the Head Beagle after Frieda reported him for not chasing rabbits; all Snoopy says is, "Fortunately, the Head Beagle was very understanding."

Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_3fafbfd4
comment
Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: In the first decade, some characters aged far more rapidly than others. Notably: Schroeder, introduced in early 1951 as an infant, within a year became first a toddler piano prodigy, and then not only fully verbal but apparently the same age as Charlie Brown, Shermy and friends. Lucy was a crib-bound toddler in her first appearances, and aged until she reached a point where she's apparently slightly older than Charlie Brown (based on the fact that Charlie Brown and her little brother, Linus, are usually depicted as being in the same class). Linus, introduced in late 1952, was somewhere between infant and toddler for two years, and a typical preschooler for the next year or two. Then, in 1957, he rapidly became the precocious Christian theologian he would remain ever after. (He never gave up his security blanket, however.) Sally Brown was the first character born into the strip, in 1959 (Snoopy mentions waiting "until her eyes are open" to go visit her). Theoretically, this should make her at least several years younger than the rest of the cast. But by the early 70s she was more or less the same age as Linus. Similarly, almost overnight in the 90s, Rerun Van Pelt went from a toddler to kindergarten age.

Bootstrapped Theme: "Linus and Lucy" is possibly the most famous example. Made even more confusing when there actually is a song called "Charlie Brown Theme" out there, and a few of the specials actually used it. "Linus and Lucy"'s ear worm powers are so mighty that they can just usurp the name. Being heavily featured in A Charlie Brown Christmas, the most famous of the specials, helps.

Story Arc: One of the staples of the strip. Many of them were later adapted for the TV specials. They started getting longer and more elaborate in the '70s. Perhaps the most famous example was a nearly-month-long arc from the summer of 1973, in which Charlie Brown starts seeing baseballs in everything he looks at, then develops a baseball-shaped rash on the back of his head, which forces him to wear a paper sack over his head, then he leaves for camp, where he becomes the unexpectedly popular and successful "Mr. Sack" and even gets elected camp president, then he loses the sack after the rash disappears, then he decides to confirm that he's "cured" by getting up to watch the sun rise to see if it looks like a baseball... only to find that it looks like Alfred E. Neuman instead.

Spelling Bee: One arc involves Charlie Brown entering one. After a bunch of strips involving him practicing for the bee, before he washes out on the first word 'maze', which he spells 'M-A-Y-S'. He was thinking of Willie Mays at the time. This story arc was expanded into a motion picture, A Boy Named Charlie Brown, a few years later. In the film, Charlie manages to make it considerably farther, but the final outcome is similar, with Charlie eliminated for misspelling "beagle").

Linus and Lucy are practically the sibling Trope Codifier, as perhaps best illustrated in the strip where Linus encourages a gloomy Lucy to count her blessings. When she demands to know what blessings he thinks she has, he replies, "Well, for one thing, you have a little brother who loves you." She stares at him for a beat panel, then hugs him and bursts into tears.

Adult Fear
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: One '70s storyline involves Peppermint Patty's house being robbed while her dad is out of town. Also, Charlie Brown frequently worries for Snoopy when the dog goes off on his own with no real idea where he's supposed to be going. One arc has Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie all getting lost in the woods in the middle of a snowstorm. The prospect of nuclear war is addressed in a couple of '50s and '60s strips, along with other adult concerns like overpopulation.

comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite Lucy's bossiness and crabbiness, she actually has shown to have a nicer, caring side on a number of occasions. For example, when Charlie Brown has to go to the hospital, Lucy is distressed, and eventually promises that if he gets better, she won't pull the football away. She keeps her promise but Charlie Brown accidentally kicks her hand. Lucy also has a good relationship with her youngest brother Rerun. Charles M. Schulz himself commented on how this came as a surprise to him. In It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Lucy wakes up in the middle of the night, and - finding that Linus hasn't come home - puts on a coat over her nightgown, goes out to the pumpkin patch, brings her exhausted and shivering brother back to the house, takes off his shoes and socks, and carefully tucks him into bed. Back when she was in the strip, Frieda was always pushy and pressuring toward Snoopy, whom she wanted to be a "real dog" by hunting rabbits instead of being lazy, but it was evident that she liked Snoopy and it was concern for his well-being, no matter how misguided, that motivated her. And after reporting Snoopy to the Head Beagle for not chasing rabbits, she eventually felt remorseful and seemed legitimately concerned about what might happen to him as a result.

Characterization Marches On
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: In the strip's first few years the characters are barely recognizable. Charlie Brown was, incredibly, a happy and self-confident young child in the earliest strips before he became the universe's Chew Toy. Admittedly, given how Shermy openly insulted him at every opportunity, it's no shock C.B. ended up so broken. Looking at the 50s strips, it's almost jarring - some strips ended with Charlie Brown either chasing someone or being angrily chased for pulling a prank on someone. Lucy started out as a wide-eyed, sweet little baby before evolving into the crabby fussbudget the reader usually thinks of her as being. Linus was originally a hyper-intelligent toddler who built impossibly large things with his toy blocks before he became an Innocent Prodigy. Snoopy was just a "regular" dog. Violet seemed to be presented as a child Love Interest and was a relatively reserved girly girl type character. Before suddenly Taking A Level In Jerass out of no where.

Paper-Thin Disguise: In He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown, when Snoopy returns home, he puts on a fake mustache before revealing himself as a surprise. Charlie Brown sees him and doesn't recognize him until Snoopy takes off the mustache. Snoopy also dons one in the strip itself, when Charlie Brown warns him that he could be in big trouble once Peppermint Patty realizes that the "private school" Snoopy gave her a brochure for is really an obedience school for dogs.

 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_4a246401
comment
Destined Bystander: In a 1968 sequence Peppermint Patty serves as a summer camp tent monitor for three younger girls named Clara, Sophie, and Shirley. Clara has dark hair and glasses. Three years later Marcie made her official debut, also in a summer camp sequence. The only real difference between Marcie and Clara besides their names is that Clara's glasses aren't opaque. The name Clara got re-used for the overenthusiastic animal lover in Snoopy Come Home. Clara and Sophie re-appeared in 1987, 19 years after their original appearance, in another summer camp storyline. The new Clara had the same Marcie-like hairstyle albeit with a ribbon added, and no glasses. The new Sophie, however, looked somewhat different, as she still wore her hair in pigtails but did not have freckles. She also had a habit of impulsively rushing into things ("HERE I GO!!!"). Interestingly, it was Sophie, not Marcie, who was the first to call Peppermint Patty "sir." Unlike with Marcie, however, Patty didn't respond to this with exasperation.

Comedic Sociopathy: Lucy, occasionally Peppermint Patty, earlier characters Patty and Violet, and every adult in the strip's world. In order for Charlie Brown to get a bag full of rocks on Halloween, there has to be a town full of adults who would give a child a rock. He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown! deals in this. Highlights include Snoopy actually physically attacking Charlie Brown, Schroeder, and Linus, Peppermint Patty treating Snoopy as a slave, and even Charlie Brown himself at one point nearly strangling Snoopy with a leash!

A 1966 storyline, involving Snoopy's doghouse catching fire and burning to the ground, was inspired by a fire at Schulz's studio in Sebastopol, CA earlier that year. (This sequence became Harsher in Hindsight in 2017 when the house Schulz lived in up until his death got destroyed in the California wildfires).

Early Installment Weirdness
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Read the strips from the early 50's. It looks and feels like a totally different series. The art was slicker (to the extent of resembling typical early '50s newspaper illustrations), and actually used a range of different perspectives (particularly three-quarter shots, which the strip virtually abandoned following the end of The '50s. The humor was far lighter and often stemmed from kids behaving as kids (albeit precociously), instead of acting like adults (although they always had large vocabularies). The core cast in 1950-1951 consisted of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Shermy, Pattynote  (not Peppermint Patty), and Violet. The latter three had all but disappeared entirely from the strip by the late 60's (though they continued to appear in the animated specials to fill out crowd shots). Charlie Brown was a lot more confident and assertive, filling the role of The Prankster and (comparatively) the Tagalong Kid as opposed to a perpetually depressed Butt-Monkey. His shirt also lacked its trademark zig-zag during the first two months of the strip's run. Snoopy was a normal (presumably non-sentient) dog, and he wasn't definitively Charlie Brown's pet. Also, in at least 1953 and 1954, it seems that Schulz couldn't decide whether to use normal word balloons or Thought Bubble Speech for his dialogue (although in instances where normal balloons were used, it was still clear that the other characters couldn't hear him). In a few early strips, adult characters actually spoke with the children (although this always happened with the word balloons coming from off-panel). Lucy was a wide-eyed, cute little Cloudcuckoolander, who spoke in third person and appeared to be toddler-aged, almost nothing like her later bossy, crabby, mean self. Linus and Schroeder first appeared as babies. The first pulling-the-football-away strip had Violet instead of Lucy, and she pulled it away from Charlie Brown out of fear he'd kick her hand rather than malice. A later strip had Shermy holding the ball for Charlie Brown, who actually kicked it; albeit not very far. Since Li'l Folks was just a weekly collection of gag cartoons and not a formal strip, it's not exactly the same as Peanuts, but you can see the roots of many characters and tropes that ended up in Peanuts, but with some odd differences. One example is a blond-haired aspiring musician who's an obvious forerunner to Schroeder, but he plays a regular piano, and in some cartoons, a violin.

Painting the Medium: In one late '80s strip, Lucy, frustrated over Schroeder's lack of interest in her, grabbed the musical notation, crumpled it up into a ball, and threw it on the ground before storming away. Schroeder un-crumpled the notation and placed it back in its proper place. Charlie Brown then commented as he was listening to Schroeder play, "Maybe it's none of my business, but your music sounds kind of wrinkled."

comment
Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Charles Schulz himself with MAD magazine. The friendly feud started when Mad complained about Peanuts` use of Comic-Book Time and started drawing their own strips showing the characters growing up; Mad also ran a series of strips depicting the Red Baron drawn in Peanuts style in which other German pilots tease him because his Worthy Opponent is a dog, and others. Eventually the crossover was returned when Schulz climaxed a 1970s story about Charlie Brown hallucinating baseballs everywhere with a cameo by Mad mascot Alfred E Neuman. They had a little fun afterwards, too. A later (90s-era) Mad back cover featured a parody of Metropolitan Life insurance ads featuring Snoopy, as an evil 'Mutt Life' representative. Sparky's reply? A sketch of Snoopy going door to door, claiming he wasn't the guy on the cover of the magazine.

The Un-Reveal: In the final football gag strip, Rerun calls Lucy in for supper, and Lucy asks Rerun to take over for her on the football. Then we see Charlie Brown running up confidently. Suddenly, we cut to Rerun approaching Lucy at the dinner table with the football under his arm. Lucy asks what happened and if he pulled the ball away from Charlie Brown. Rerun simply says, "You'll never know.", to which Lucy appropriately cries out, "AAUUGH!!"

Surprise Jump
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_5a67551c

Surprise Jump: A storyline in 1962 had Sally filled with fear about her first day of kindergarten. On the day before school starts, Charlie Brown tells Lucy that Sally is so scared about her first day of kindergarten that if someone even mentions kindergarten while she's around, she'd jump 30 feet in the air. Putting this theory to the test, Lucy says "Kindergarten" to Sally, who then promptly jumps up into the air in fear. Lucy then muses, "Only 10 feet. I knew you were exaggerating." In the September 1960 storyline in which the construction of a new freeway puts Snoopy in danger of losing his doghouse, Linus exhorts Snoopy to stand firm before yelling "HERE COME THE BULLDOZERS!" to test him. Instead of standing firm, a startled Snoopy manages a successful 30-foot leap into the air.

comment
F--: Frequently invoked. Peppermint Patty frequently received Z's for a time in the mid-1970s strips, and the teacher sarcastically admitted her to the "D Minus Hall of Fame" in 2000. After Sally rehearsed her report on Abraham Lincoln: In Snoopy! The Musical, Lucy is given a Z for suggesting that if one removes King Louis XIV from King Louis XVI, the end result is King Louis II. She angrily retorts, "A Z is not a grade, a Z is sarcasm!" That retort was originally attributed to Peppermint Patty in the mid-1970s, when she got a "Z-minus" on a test and was so angry that she went to the principal to try to get the grade changed. The grade was indeed changed - from a Z-minus to a straight Z.

X Must Not Win
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_5b3c4b05
comment
X Must Not Win: Whenever Charlie Brown has any real chance of winning something, someone has to be around specifically to prevent him from achieving the victory, usually Snoopy. The most prominent case is in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, where he is one of the two remaining contestants on a winner-takes-all national spelling bee. Charlie Brown screws up spelling "beagle" due to a combination of Snoopy (who is a beagle) following him along and worry over Linus getting angry at Charlie Brown for a trivial reason. In Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown's team is set to win the river race, but the bullies sabotage his boat, allowing Woodstock to win. Averted in "You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown". He actually wins a motocross race, but the victory is somewhat dampened by the Undesirable Prize. (above)

And he does. Leading to him getting fined by the EPA.

Loony Fan: Schroeder's major schtick is that he is a serious Ludwig van Beethoven fanboy. Less frequently mentioned, but Charlie Brown is one for the terrible baseball player Joe Shlabotnik. In one storyline, he goes to see Shlabotnik's ill-fated managerial career with the (very) minor league Waffletown Syrups, during which he is fired before the first game is over for calling a squeeze play when there is no-one on base,note  A squeeze play requires a runner on third base and no more than one out, as the idea is for the batter to play a sacrifice bunt, getting himself out at first while the runner on third base is able to return to home plate. and Charlie Brown still asks Shlabotnik to autograph the foul ball he caught. Snoopy has a phase where he's one for Miss Helen Sweetstory, author of the Six Bunny-Wunnies books. He gives it up when he discovers that Miss Sweetstory is a cat person.

Aluminum Christmas Trees: Besides the trope naming artifacts in A Charlie Brown Christmas, there's an early strip where Lucy tries to make Schroeder jealous by claiming she prefers more modern music and Snoopy comes in with an accordion to play "polkas, schottisches, and waltzes." At the time this was a straight reference, while in reprints it looks as though it's a gag on how Lucy and/or Snoopy are out of touch. The character José Peterson represented a Melting-Pot Nomenclature joke at the time, as the idea of someone with a Swedish father and Mexican mother seemed like a bizarrely unlikely combination - it wouldn't be seen as that remarkable in the modern US.

Clumsy Copyright Censorship: There were a few product placements for Coca-Cola in A Charlie Brown Christmas. While a scene where the kids throw snowballs at Coca-Cola cans was subsequently reanimated to have non-descript cans instead, the credits end right before the kids finish singing "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" because an announcer chimed in at that point to plug the soda, and the opening ends up getting a case of What Happened to the Mouse? as Linus landed on a Coca-Cola sign after being flung along with Charlie Brown by Snoopy.

Girliness Upgrade
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_6924443d
comment
Girliness Upgrade: Peppermint Patty occasionally, especially these two strips. Peppermint Patty has also notably tried a Girliness Upgrade as a ploy to get herself better grades. After putting a bow in her hair got her a C+ instead of her usual D- on one report, she went all out giving her next report, adding even more bows and a frilly dress. ("Yes, ma'am... this is really me!") Her second attempt didn't work, as she got a D- on that report. A story arc in the early 1970s had to do with Patty being forced to wear a dress to school, which made her so upset she actually dreaded going to school (partly because some of her classmates humiliated her for it). After being sent to the principal's office for deliberately defying the dress code and wearing her usual shirt, shorts and sandals, she hired Snoopy as her lawyer and tried to challenge the dress code before the school board. She was unsuccessful, but was only drawn wearing a dress in a few subsequent strips, suggesting that the school did eventually relax the dress code.

Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: Charlie Brown is hit by this when the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm calls him in He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown. Also in a 1961 Sunday strip in which Lucy makes a flannelgraph for Linus illustrating a story about a shepherd and three sheep.

Improbable Weapon User: In the comic, Linus has used his blanket as a whip to break off a tree branch and beat up bullies. In the Christmas special, he also used it as a sling to throw a snowball with pinpoint accuracy.

Through a Face Full of Fur: Snoopy is often shown blushing. In one 1950s strip, Charlie Brown wonders, "How can anyone blush through a face full of hair?" (thus becoming the Trope Namer).

Serious Business: The kids' baseball games, spelling bees, school elections, Christmas pageants, etc. One series of strips involved the kids' wintertime snowman-building efforts being organized by parents into actual leagues with championship trophies, referees, sponsors, and so forth. Linus's annual vigils for the Great Pumpkin. Beethoven's birthday, for Schroeder. In the rare years he forgot about it, he was beside himself with guilt. Snoopy's assignments from the "Head Beagle," and the arc in which Frieda reported him to said Head Beagle for refusing to chase rabbits. Lucy has been shown to have many trophies, including one bigger than her, for being a "fussbudget."

Subverted in one series of strips. Sally prepares for a Christmas pageant in which "I come out and say, 'Hark!', then Harold Angel starts to sing." Everyone assumes that she's simply confused by the name of the song... until a kid named Harold Angel actually shows up.note Name's the Same: Hopefully, not that Harold Angel.

April Fools' Plot
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_6dbf7c8d

April Fools' Plot: Lucy enjoys playing rather cruel April Fool's jokes on Charlie Brown, usually dealing with the Little Red-Haired Girl or baseball. In 1969, Lucy even warned him in advance that she was going to play such a joke on him, and Charlie Brown still fell for it, infuriating Linus, who called him out for being so "vulnerable."

Big Brother Worship: Completely inverted with Sally, who on numerous occasions has not hesitated to let Charlie Brown know that she has zero respect for him and considers him a nothing. That hasn't stopped her from asking, or occasionally demanding, that he help her with homework (often by threatening him if he doesn't comply). Also inverted, in the later years of the strip, with Rerun, who is contemptful of Linus for still having a security blanket. In one strip, he even says, "My older brother should be my role model, but that blanket business takes care of that." Rerun looks up to Lucy considerably more than he does Linus, but even Lucy isn't exempt from his snarkery.

Going Cold Turkey
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_70506bc7
comment
Going Cold Turkey: Linus tried to give up his blanket cold turkey a number of times. It failed every time. Often it was the result of Lucy doing something to try to "break him of the habit," such as burying the blanket or making a kite out of the blanket and then letting go of it, but sometimes it was voluntary. A few times it even almost worked, but invariably something happened to make him "relapse": for example, Charlie Brown buying him a new blanket to make up for the one Snoopy had made into two sport coats (1971), or the discovery that his only pupil for his "security blanket cessation" clinic was Sally in disguise (1983). Lucy also got a taste of this when her mother decided to get rid of the TV set because she and Linus had constantly fought over it. She actually experienced symptoms of physical withdrawal, such as shaky hands and a sore throat.

Performance Anxiety: Linus, whenever he's assigned a part in the PTA's Christmas programs. Lucy is not only unsympathetic, she threatens him with physical violence if he doesn't comply. In a 1963 storyline, Lucy volunteers Linus to sing "Jingle Bells" in the Christmas show. Despite protesting that he can't sing and angsting about it for weeks, he manages to pull it off with some "encouragement" ("SING, YOU BLOCKHEAD!") from his sister. Lucy's next move is to volunteer Linus for the role of Baby New Year in the New Year's program, but this time Linus puts his foot down and flat-out refuses to participate, even hiding in a tree until the program is over and forcing Snoopy to fill in for him.

Straw Feminist: Peppermint Patty occasionally shows a mild straw feminist streak. Lucy and Sally sometimes do, too. In the early '70s, Lucy went so far as to withdraw from Charlie Brown's baseball team because she felt baseball was degrading to women as a male-dominated game. Also an example of Ripped from the Headlines. Sometimes they did voice Schulz's own concerns, as in the Sunday strip where Peppermint goes on a rant about TV sports news neglecting women's sports (rattling off the names of twenty sportswomen of the time in the process). Charles M. Schulz was a great admirer and personal friend of Billie Jean King and hosted a women's tennis tournament himself. Lucy once declared this year's yanking away of the football was "brought to you by women's lib".

"I Am" Song/"I Want" Song: A few have cropped up over the years. "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" gives Charlie Brown the title song, which is both; Lucy has an I Want song ("Schroeder"); and Snoopy gets one of each ("Snoopy" and "Suppertime"). It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown has "Lucy Says", which serves both purposes for Lucy. And Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown has the heartbreaking "Alone", an I Want song for Charlie Brown (although he doesn't sing it, it plays in the background and obviously represents his perspective).

The Faceless: The adults watching the golf tournament Charlie Brown and Lucy are competing in, in the Sunday strips of May 16, 1954 and May 23, 1954. A series of strips from May 1971 has Charlie Brown attending summer camp and futilely attempting to befriend an unnamed kid who's always shown with his face turned toward the wall and never says anything other than, "Shut up, and leave me alone!" When Charlie Brown tried to write him a letter later on, the kid even wrote back, "Shut up, and leave me alone!" Later still, he called Charlie Brown on the phone and said, "Shut up and leave me alone!"

Sore Loser: Snoopy in You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown; after losing a tennis match, he goes on a tirade that would make John McEnroe blush. Also memorably in Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown! (And Don't Come Back!), at Wimbledon no less. During a late 1960s storyline in which Snoopy temporarily took Charlie Brown's place as manager of the baseball team, Snoopy is shown to have absolutely no tolerance for players who make mistakes or criticize him, literally giving them sharp and painful kicks in the backside. And Lord help them if they lose the game... Lucy is shown to be a sore loser as well. In one early strip, she got so frustrated by her inability to shoot a marble correctly that she flew into a rage and stomped on Charlie Brown's and Schroeder's marbles. And decades later, she got back at Linus for beating her in croquet by pinning him down by the wrists and ankles under croquet wickets.

Cosmic Retcon: As mentioned in Comic Book Time above, in the early days, Schulz introduced characters as babies – Schroeder, Linus, and Sally – only to age them up to within a couple years of Charlie Brown with absolutely no explanation nor indication they had ever been so much younger. One particularly weird instance happened in 1959, when Sally was born. Linus (also introduced as a baby a couple years earlier) had already gone through this process, but he explicitly mentions being five years older than Sally. By the time of the Christmas special (1965), they're in the same class at school.

Only Child Syndrome: In the first couple years of the strip, each kid (Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder and Lucy) was an only child. Then months after Lucy's debut in 1952, Linus was born. In 1959, Sally Brown was born, making Charlie Brown a big brother. By the end of the strip's run, the only Peanuts kids that weren't only children included Charlie and Sally Brown, Lucy and Linus and Rerun Van Pelt, and the kids 3, 4 and 5 95472. Even Snoopy was shown to have siblings beginning in The '70s.

"The Reason You Suck" Speech: While Patty and especially Violet subjected poor Charlie Brown to this on various occasions, it was Lucy who turned this trope into an art form in regard to Charlie Brown. Lucy never misses a chance to list off all of Charlie Brown's faults: in a 1964 storyline (later adapted into the script of A Boy Named Charlie Brown in 1969), she not only forced him to sit through a slide show presentation of all of his faults, but then got mad when he refused to reimburse her $143 for renting the projector, making up the slides, and so on (not to mention $100 of that sum was Lucy's "personal fee"). In one Sunday strip from 1969, Lucy delivered a Reason You Suck Speech to Charlie Brown using a variety of sports analogies in one session at her psychiatric booth. Fortunately, this time Charlie Brown had the perfect comeback ready. A story arc from July 1969 has the Little Red-Haired Girl moving away with her parents. Linus urges Charlie Brown to talk to her while he still has the chance, but when the moment comes he, as usual, freezes in panic. After she's gone for good, Linus flips out and tears into Charlie Brown for his wishy-washiness: Lucy was sometimes herself the recipient of Reason You Suck Speeches, as in when Schroeder lists off the reasons why he doesn't like her. And then there's this example from 1982, delivered by Linus in one of his bolder moments. Despite Lucy's comeback, Linus came away from it feeling immensely satisfied. The special Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown has an amusing subversion of this (adapted from this 1963 strip). On the morning after Valentine's Day, Charlie Brown's female classmates approach him, explain that they feel bad he didn't get a single valentine card, and offer him one of their own cards with the original name scratched off and his penciled in. Seeing this, an outraged Schroeder tears into them for their hypocritical gesture: Played more straight in 1966's Charlie Brown's All-Stars, when Schroeder delivers a modified version of the above to Lucy, Violet, Patty, Frieda and Snoopy, even though he had joined them in walking off the team just a few minutes earlier after learning they weren't going to get the promised uniforms. The infamous scene in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where everyone berates Charlie Brown for getting a shabby tree for the play.

Anti-School Uniforms Plot: There was an arc involving school uniforms being instated. It didn't work out well, especially for Patty, who had to give up her sandals and shorts. Patty ended up taking her school to court, and she won.

Tsundere: Lucy is sweet when it comes to Schroeder, her love interest, but she's mean and crabby when it comes to everybody else. And when it comes to her "competition" for Schroeder (namely, his piano), then it's a completely different story. Sally is often this with Linus. Early on, she's almost as adamant as Lucy at bugging Linus to give up his blanket, since she regards him as husband material except for the blanket. When Linus gives her the brushoff, she'll sometimes retaliate by yanking his blanket away a la Lucy and Schroeder's piano. She'll also ask her big brother to play "hit man" by slugging or punching her "Sweet 'n' Sour Babboo" in revenge, which Charlie Brown is understandably reluctant to do. Peppermint Patty is a bit more sweet towards Charlie Brown than she is towards anyone else, but is still prone to blow up at him if things don't go her way. Marcie sometimes shows tendencies of this as well. She once actually kicked Charlie Brown in the leg when he balked at answering her question of whether he liked her.

Fired Teacher: Miss Othmar was fired in a 1968 storyline as a consequence of a teachers' strike, devastating Linus. At some point, however, she was apparently reinstated, as she is shown teaching again in future comic strips and TV specials. Interestingly, in a c. 1960 storyline, it was mentioned that Miss Othmar was quitting her job to get married. Eventually she returns to teaching, but Linus still insists on calling her Miss Othmar rather than by her married name. "In REAL life she's Miss Othmar!"

Artistic License – Animal Care: Charlie Brown is seen feeding chocolate to Snoopy in some strips. Dog owners can tell you this is a big no-no. (In one later strip, he gets it right, telling Snoopy that he made him a chocolate sundae for dessert but then had to eat it himself because he heard on the radio that chocolate wasn't good for dogs.) In one 1958 strip, Charlie Brown says that Snoopy eats nothing but pizza, "three times a day, day after day, week after week."

Characters grow up, but reach a certain cap. Lucy is introduced as a toddler; Schroeder, Linus, and then Sally and Rerun are all introduced as babies. They grow up and eventually reach or become within a few years of Charlie Brown's age. Charlie Brown himself also aged somewhat over the course of the strip; he stated that he was four in a 1950 strip, six in a 1957 one, and eight and a half in a 1979 one.

Nobody (except Charlie Brown) ever seems to think it odd that a beagle is riding atop his doghouse in full WWI Flying Ace getup, among many other things (Marcie even participates in the WWI fantasy on occasion, as a 'simple French lass' with whom he shares wistful root beers in little cafes). A running gag was that Peppermint Patty thinks Snoopy is a "funny-looking kid with [a] big nose." In fact, Snoopy provokes most of the moments like these.

Free-Range Children: Somewhat justified by the times, and by how they apparently only hang around their own neighborhood. In one strip, Lucy and Linus's parents are surprisingly cool with Linus staying at the pumpkin patch until 4:00 A.M. waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear. Which, if Linus's anguished reaction to his babysitting grandmother's making him come in at 9:00 on Halloween 1968 is any indication, may be a regular occurrence. Taken to extremes in one arc from the mid-1970s, where Charlie Brown runs away from home to avoid the wrath of the Environmental Protection Agency and spends several nights sleeping outside in a cardboard box. There is no hint that his parents are looking for him, or concerned about his whereabouts; in fact, they are not mentioned at all.

Where the Hell Is Springfield?
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_8504b817
comment
Where the Hell Is Springfield?: We're never told the location of the town the characters live in, or even its name. However, the look of the houses is based on those in Schulz's own birthplace of St. Paul, Minnesota, and an early strip has Lucy winning a trophy for "Outstanding Fussbudget of Hennepin County" (real-life location of Minneapolis). The character "5" is established to live inside ZIP code 95472, which is Sebastopol, California. The 1963 book Security is a Thumb and a Blanket contains the passage "Security is having a home town", with a picture showing Linus hugging a sign post for Pinetree Corners (Population 3,260). The school that Charlie Brown, Sally, et al. attend is variously referred to as James Street Elementary, Pinecrest Elementary, and (in the specials) Birchwood Elementary. If you look closely at a letter envelope in Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales, it lists the town as "Sparkyville, USA". ("Sparky" was Schulz's nickname.) If A Boy Named Charlie Brown is to be believed, the gang live about one or two hours bus drive from New York City. Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown has them attending summer camp in what could be the Adirondacks, but there's no desert anywhere in New York State. Lampshaded in a 1995 strip:

Medium Awareness: In one strip's story about Linus warning everyone not to look directly into an upcoming eclipse, Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she's going to heed her brother's advice and not do so to protect her "beautiful eyes". She then asks CB what he thinks of her eyes. Also, in one very early strip, when Schroeder ran to Charlie Brown excited that he had "perfect pitch," and Charlie Brown replied, "You mean a perfect pitch. Besides, who cares? The baseball season is over!" From a 1962 strip: Every so often, Snoopy and Woodstock will end up physically interacting with the musical notations resulting from Schroeder's piano playing. Occasionally Hand Waved as a Dream Sequence, but not always.

 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_8a07e085
comment
Denser and Wackier: Whilst the strip evolved from its more lighthearted roots into a grittier and more brutally honest commentary on American childhood/society by the mid-Fifties, the increasing popularity and merchandise (much of which involved cuter and more cuddly depictions of the cast than the strip itself initially displayed) surrounding the strip ultimately both forced Schulz to tone down the strip to fit a wider reading demographic whilst simultaneously finding his incentive to write darker plotlines eventually reduced (thanks to the comfortable lifestyle the strip's major success had afforded him). This led to a return to a more lighthearted and gag-driven approach by the early Seventies with the addition of previously unseen surrealistic elements such as the Kite-Eating Tree (to the extent where it was drawn with a mouth in later appearances), a sentient school building (complete with thought bubbles), and a heavier focus on an increasingly humanoid Snoopy (whose Cloudcuckoolander tendencies were exaggerated while shedding their darker and more realistic underhangings from the early days).

High Hopes, Zero Talent
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_8c1ac7c4
comment
High Hopes, Zero Talent: Charlie Brown loves baseball, and there's nothing he'd rather be doing than playing the game. He's also terrible at it, usually losing double figures to nothing. Probably the only reason he's still a team manager is that nobody else on the team cares enough to try and have him removed. In one sequence, Peppermint Patty asks Charlie Brown to help her baseball team...selling popcorn at their game. He agrees to do it, but spends most of the game asking her for a chance to pitch. Peppermint Patty, who knows exactly how bad Charlie Brown is at baseball (or so she thought), rejects him every time. That is, until the very end of the game, when her team is so far ahead - they have a fifty to nothing lead, and it's the last of the ninth, two outs - that she decides it's impossible for them to lose anyway, so she lets him pitch just this one time. The first thing Charlie Brown does, is to throw a wild pitch that knocks Patty unconscious. Then he somehow causes her team to lose fifty-one to fifty. Infuriated, Patty demands to know how this is even possible, but Charlie Brown can't (or won't) explain, and spends some time hiding from her.

One-Note Cook: Charlie Brown once said "All I can make is cold cereal and maybe toast." In a Chex cereal commercial from the early '90s Charlie Brown admits that "I can't even make toast." A similar joke was made about Lucy, after Schroeder told her that Beethoven loved macaroni and cheese and the girl he married would have to be able to make good macaroni and cheese:

Little Known Facts
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_90dd217f
comment
Little Known Facts: When Linus was younger, a running gag was for Lucy to fill him up with her "knowledge", which was invariably of the "Artistic License" variety. In one strip, Charlie Brown laments that Linus will take twice as long to finish school as everyone else, as it will take him twelve years to unlearn everything Lucy has taught him. There's actually a song called "Little Known Facts" in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown that illustrates Lucy's tenuous grasp on accuracy. Linus has done this himself to Sally on at least one occasion, when he tricked her into delivering a lecture about the dangers of "rock snakes" in class. In a late run of strips, Sally had to teach Sunday school classes to younger kids, one of whom persistently confused the details of the Christmas story (and every other Biblical story) with The Great Gatsby.

The "The" Title Confusion: It's just Peanuts, not The Peanuts. In the years since Schulz's death, many people in the public and even media outlets have started to call the characters "the Peanuts", even though they were never called that when he was alive ("the Peanuts gang" or "the Peanuts kids" usually being the collective term). Even more confusing, some people have even been known to call the characters "The Peanut Gallery", which is way, way off.

Never My Fault: In It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown. During an important football game Lucy pulls the ball from Charlie's kick, losing the game. She proceeds to blame him – and the others go along with her. Peppermint Patty also tends to dominate her conversations with Charlie Brown, never letting him get a word in edgewise as he attempts to object to or correct her. Then she yells at him when things don't live up to her expectations (though Marcie usually tries to talk her down). "I hate talking to you, Chuck!" Patty will also shift the blame onto Charlie Brown for things that are really her fault - such as failing a test because she talked with him on the phone instead of studying, when she's the one who called him. In a 1984 strip, she tries to blame him for her being sent to the principal's office for attacking a classmate, and her rationale is, "You're my friend, right, Chuck? You should have been a better influence on me!"

Continuity Reboot: Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, a 2011 Direct-to-Video film from Warner Premiere, is this to the original run of animated specials and series. An adaptation of strips that had previously been adapted in The '80s, it focuses on the core cast from The '60s (save for a Woodstock cameo in the opening sequence), dials back Snoopy's slapstick and Spotlight-Stealing Squad tendencies, doesn't try to be "relevant", disregards the strip and specials' Art Evolution in favor of the '60s-era designs, and is quieter and more melancholy than most of the later adaptations. (In other words, it could coexist with A Charlie Brown Christmas and Snoopy, Come Home, but not with It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown).

Throw the Dog a Bone
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_98576799
comment
Throw the Dog a Bone: People who complain about Charlie Brown always getting the short end of the stick and never being able to kick the dang football probably never saw the 1980s TV special, It's Magic, Charlie Brown. As many problems as Charlie Brown has, parental issues aren't one of them; as he occasionally talks about how great his dad is for making time for him. In March of 1993, Charlie Brown finally hit the winning home run in a baseball game. (That game's pitcher, Royanne Hobbs, later spoils the moment by insisting she could've struck him out but didn't because she had a crush on him.) Twenty years earlier, Charlie Brown's team won their first game of their season, but Charlie Brown was unable to enjoy the moment because he thought about how the other team must have felt and started to feel guilty. It ended up a moot point, as the bone was taken away from him when he was forced to forfeit because of a gambling scandal involving Snoopy and Rerun. In June 1962, Charlie Brown won his first trophy ever for breaking 100 in bowling. Lucy proceeded to ruin the moment for him when she pointed out that his name was misspelled ("Charlie Braun"). Charlie beat Joe Agate in a game of marbles in April 1995 in order to gain back the marbles that Joe swindled from Rerun.

Continuity Nod: Very often used in the strips. Very rare in the TV specials due to a loose continuity, with a couple of notable exceptions: In "You're in Love...", during Lucy's rant about having a pretty face, she yells, "Wasn't I the Christmas Queen?!", a clear nod to A Charlie Brown Christmas. In "Easter Beagle...", Sally brings up the trauma she suffered waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

My God, What Have I Done?
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_a1b141f4
comment
My God, What Have I Done?: A series of comic strips from October 1971 had Marcie (who had just debuted in the comic the previous summer) visiting Peppermint Patty, and the two of them playing a game of "Ha Ha, Herman" with Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Sensing Peppermint Patty's crush on Charlie Brown, Marcie asks if she likes him, and a flustered Peppermint Patty snaps, "Who could ever be in love with boring, dull, wishy-washy old Chuck?" Unbeknownst to her, Charlie Brown is within earshot of this remark, and he trudges off, his self-esteem obliterated, to Peppermint Patty's horror. This incident was adapted as part of the 1973 TV special There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown had this reaction in a Sunday strip after Lucy goaded him into fighting and he ended up hitting her on the nose. Lucy got her revenge when he went to her psychiatric booth for advice on dealing with his guilt and the first thing she did was to slug him. Charlie Brown also dealt with this after yelling at Sally (then still a baby) for messing up his picture puzzle (1959) and trading Snoopy to Peppermint Patty's baseball team in exchange for some new players (1967). In the latter storyline, Charlie Brown decided to call off the deal, which turned out to be a moot point because the players Patty would have traded to him steadfastly refused to join Charlie Brown's team anyway.

Afraid of Needles
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_a2b332f9
comment
Afraid of Needles: Linus is not only afraid of getting shots, he's scared when he has to get a sliver taken out of his finger with a needle or tweezers. (For the latter, Charlie Brown gave some advice, telling him to pretend he was being tortured by pirates who wanted him to tell them where the gold was buried. After having his mother remove the sliver — indicated by an off-panel scream from Linus — he came back and said, "I told them where the gold was buried!") In one arc, Lucy and Peppermint Patty wanted to get their ears pierced, and Marcie was a big help, telling them about all the dangers of getting that done by an unskilled amateur; Patty almost freaked when Marcie mentioned a penicillin shot. Eventually they decided to go the safe route and have a doctor do it, but Lucy chickened out and ran after hearing Patty overreact to it. One strip shows the entire cast of the strip trying to pry Snoopy off of a tree, with Snoopy pleading, "I don't want another rabies shot!" (Fortunately, he got it.) Snoopy also shares Linus's fear of having slivers removed, as illustrated in a 1981 storyline in which both Linus and Snoopy attempted to evade Lucy and her tweezers. Snoopy eventually turned to the Cat Next Door, who solved the problem by "remov[ing] [him] from the sliver."

comment
Canon Discontinuity: Provoked by the appearance of the Little Red-Haired Girl, Schulz firmly insisted that the animated specials "don't count." Similarly, the existence of Charlotte Braun was denied until the '00s, when Schulz's estate FINALLY agreed to reprint the strips in which the character appeared. Although in one of the final Peanuts books to come out before his death, Schulz did show a reader's letter complaining about the character and the sketch of Charlotte with an axe in her head he sent in response.

comment
The Pratfall: The famous sequence where Lucy would pull away the football at the last second always resulted in Charlie Brown landing on his backside. The same goes for baseball strips, where he would get zinged by a line drive and get sent flying, often getting half his clothes knocked off in the process.

Election Day Episode
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_a46eb25d
comment
Election Day Episode: In one story arc, Linus campaigns for class president, with Charlie Brown as his running mate. At the very end, however, Linus blows the election by mentioning the Great Pumpkin in his final campaign speech. This storyline was adapted as the special You're (Not) Elected, Charlie Brown; after his apparent campaign-blowing Great Pumpkin speech, Linus goes from certain victory to neck-and-neck with the other candidate, Russell, but when the votes are counted, Russell casts his vote for Linus, feeling he would make a better class president, and Linus wins by one vote. To Sally's disgust, it takes Linus mere minutes to go from planning to tell the principal and teachers what to do to agreeing to do whatever the principal tells him to do.

Collective Groan: Charlie Brown's ineptitude on the baseball diamond tends to prompt an anguished cry from his teammates. In A Boy Named Charlie Brown, he loses the big spelling bee when he misspells "beagle," Snoopy's breed. Even Charlie Brown himself reacts in this manner, instantly realizing he misspelled it. In You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown, Linus appears to be a lock to be elected Class President, when the day before the election, he addresses the student body... including his campaign team, Charlie Brown and Lucy, who react as expected.

Ascended Extra: It took a quarter century after his introduction in the early 1970s for Rerun to become a regular. For most of that time Rerun was usually shown riding on the back of his mother's bicycle, when he was shown at all. By the last few years of the strip, however, his interactions with Snoopy and Lucy, as well as his entering kindergarten, had provided fresh material. Rerun is even the main character of a few of the more recent TV specials.

We're never told the location of the town the characters live in, or even its name. However, the look of the houses is based on those in Schulz's own birthplace of St. Paul, Minnesota, and an early strip has Lucy winning a trophy for "Outstanding Fussbudget of Hennepin County" (real-life location of Minneapolis).

Karma Houdini: Lucy, in It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown. Pulling the football away from Charlie Brown is one thing. Causing their football team to lose the game because of it, then managing to convince everyone it was Charlie Brown's fault, is another. While there's Butt-Monkey moments for all the cast, nearly everyone has a turn being insensitive or rambunctious with no repercussions shown. Lucy and Snoopy are the most common cases, though even Charlie Brown has the odd moment.

Animate Inanimate Object: Linus's blanket was depicted as alive in one story arc, and spent the week terrorizing Lucy. The Kite-Eating Tree is also depicted as one of these. Charlie Brown's baseball glove has attempted to avoid associating with him, even attempting to crawl away from him. Charlie Brown and Sally's school building. Sally talks to it on occasion, and it drops bricks on people who insult it. Several other objects occasionally have thought balloons as a punchline, including the pitcher's mound and a leaf Sally brought for show and tell.

Adults Are Useless
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_a939d96a
comment
Adults Are Useless: Very much so, but "Useless"? Try non-existent. And it's just as well they aren't seen, because the rare situations where the main characters had to interact with them portrayed them as incompetent. In one story arc, Charlie Brown went to talk to his pediatrician to find out why the school board (which the doctor was a member of) had banned a book called The Six Bunny-Wunnies Freak Out from the school library. The doctor fainted. The nurse later told Charlie Brown that little kids made him nervous. (Remember, this was a pediatrician.) Later, Charlie Brown told Linus that the doctor admitted that he only reads medical journals, but the pictures upset him. Another story arc shows that Peppermint Patty's teacher is a Lawful Stupid type. A hole in the ceiling classroom was causing rain to fall on Patty's head. According to Marcie, the teacher couldn't move Patty to another desk, because that would disrupt the alphabetical seating arrangement. There was one animated special, Snoopy's Reunion, where there are not only adults seen, they can be heard. It's the one where Charlie Brown gets Snoopy for the first time. We see the puppy farm owner and he even talks. Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown! had a couple of adult characters who appeared on camera and spoke normally: the cab driver who took Snoopy to Wimbledon, and the teacher at the French school. There is also a London waiter who speaks in a thick Cockney accent that the kids can't comprehend, and Violette's uncle, "The Baron," who speaks normally but appears only in silhouette. And more background adults (or possibly teenagers) at the club in Flashbeagle. Adults are heard, but not seen, in She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, but that's due to the storyline requiring intelligible adults for once (most notably, the rink announcer). The adults in This Is America, Charlie Brown. They were everywhere; again, this was needed for the concept — a look at famous American historical events, inventions, and music — to work, plugging in the kids as a Universal-Adaptor Cast of sorts. And, unlike most of the above examples, we even see their faces. There's also the live-action title character in It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown (played, incidentally, by Charles Schulz's daughter, Jill). Occasionally in the first decade or so of the strip, there was offstage dialogue from parents — usually Linus and Lucy's — but only once did Schulz even try to draw adults, in three Sunday strips in 1954 (starting here). Even then they're only seen from the neck or legs down, or as outlines in distant crowd shots (as part of a storyline involving Lucy participating in a golf tournament). The perspectives are noticably wonky, with the kids barely reaching the adults' knees; notably, those three Sunday strips were not reprinted in any Peanuts collection until Fantagraphics put out the 1953-1954 edition of The Complete Peanuts. We see an adult doctor (or, rather, Linus's drawing of one) in this 1964 strip. The strips where Rerun was carried along with his mom when she went bike riding showed her, though admittedly they only showed her back, and she never said anything. Charlie Brown does go to his father's barber shop and comments on how great his father is for showing him affection. Violet always took unseemly pride in comparing her father's accomplishments with those of the other kids'. Off-screen, there had to be a whole townful of adults giving Halloween trick-or-treaters treats, and rocks to Charlie Brown.

Straw Misogynist: In TV special #2 (Charlie Brown's All-Stars, 1966), a local businessman offers to sponsor the team and give them uniforms and everything. The kids are excited and start practicing really hard, making great plays. Charlie calls off the deal - because the businessman wanted him to cut Snoopy and the girls from the team and have only boy players. Thibault, a member of Peppermint Patty's baseball team would constantly criticize Marcie for being on the team because she was a girl. Peppermint Patty had to remind him that she was one as well. He still wouldn't let up, until Marcie finally had enough and slugged him.

Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Schulz always hated the name "Peanuts", so virtually every single TV special ever made has the name "Charlie Brown" in its title somewhere, as do three of the four films. Extra points if it looks something like this: "(insert phrase here), Charlie Brown". This is also the case with many of the strip's book collections, although Snoopy sometimes gets title billing rather than Charlie Brown.

Accidental Misnaming: "Stop calling me 'sir'!" "I am not your 'sweet babboo'!" Early on, the name of the strip (which Schulz always hated to begin with) led some fans to think Charlie Brown's name was Peanuts. This is most likely why the Sunday strips had the title "Peanuts featuring 'Good ol' Charlie Brown'".

Catchphrase
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_b01abe4f
comment
Catchphrase: "Good grief!" was the expression of exasperation of choice for most of the characters, Charlie Brown most of all. "You blockhead!" was the insult of choice for most of the characters, with Charlie Brown the most common object. "AAUGH!" was the comic's preferred yell of pain, anger, or despair. "I can't stand it! I just can't stand it!" was another common expression with which the cast expressed frustration. "Rats!" was yet another popular expression of disgust. Charlie Brown has two regarding his dog: "Why does he/do you have to make such a big deal out of everything?" and "Why can't I have a normal dog like everyone else?" "Stop calling me 'Sir'!" was Peppermint Patty's stock response to Marcie doing exactly that. "I'M NOT YOUR SWEET BABBOO!" Not that Linus' endless cries of this do anything to dissuade Sally... Snoopy also had the Mad Libs Catch Phrase "Here's the world-famous (X) doing (Y)". Occasionally, Lucy laments "I'll probably never get married" in response to Schroeder's latest rejection.

comment
Be Careful What You Wish For: Linus once challenged his teacher, Miss Othmar, to give up biting her fingernails when she scolded him for bringing his security blanket to school, and gave her the blanket as collateral. He figured she couldn't do it, but his scheme backfired when she ''did''. (She did eventually give the blanket back on the condition that Linus no longer bring it to school.) Instead of learning from this incident, a few years later, he tried something similar with his "blanket-hating" grandmother, to get her to give up smoking. Once again, the scheme backfired, as Grandma did give up smoking and Lucy hid the blanket from Linus with great relish. This time, however, Linus was more assertive, forcibly grabbing the blanket back from Lucy when she tried to burn it.

Awesomeness-Induced Amnesia: The special It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown has Charlie Brown giving the Little Red-Haired Girl the customary kiss... and after a state of euphoria, he wakes up in bed the next morning with no memory of what happened after. Linus tells him later that he was the life of the homecoming dance, which Charlie can't recall.

Verbal Judo: Charlie Brown attempted to do this, on different occasions, with both Violet and Lucy, who were chasing and threatening him with physical harm. Both times, it failed, as both girls slugged him before he could finish his attempt to talk the situation down.

Epic Fail
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_b4eff8a8
comment
Epic Fail: Charlie Brown's curse is to fail spectacularly at most of what he attempts. Peppermint Patty isn't immune to this either. In a strip from December of 1989, she's getting ready to throw around a football with Marcie. It's very cold, but that's no problem, because Patty has a hoodie to keep her warm! Telling Marcie to kick the ball to her as soon as she gets it on, she puts it on backwards and then pulls the hood up, yes, over her face. Not able to see a thing, she misses the catch and gets hit in the head with the football a moment later. Although it's possible she put it over her face on purpose to protect her face from the ball, since Marcie is so inept at anything sports-related. After all, Marcie is the one whose reply to Patty asking her to join her baseball team was, "What if I get put in the penalty box?" Most of the gang's baseball games go poorly, but once, in the first game of the season, they give up a hundred runs. In another game, where Peppermint Patty is a guest pitcher, she pitches a no-hit game and makes five home runs and the team still ends up behind 37 to 5, leading her to quit in frustration. And if Charlie Brown is involved, even Peppermint Patty's team is vulnerable: in a 1981 storyline, Patty let Charlie Brown take over for her as pitcher, with her team leading 50-0 and two outs in the bottom of the ninth. They lost 51-50. Still, none of this compares to one 1959 strip in which Charlie Brown's team lost 600-0. Nevertheless, Charlie Brown's team has been shown to win some games - mainly the ones in which Charlie Brown does not play. A rare exception to this rule occurred in a 1973 storyline in which Charlie Brown's team managed to eke out a victory because Rerun kept getting "walked" at bat. However, even this ended badly, as the team were forced to forfeit due to a gambling scandal involving Rerun and Snoopy. All of the decathletes in You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown - except for Marcie - fail in epic fashion in at least one event. Charlie Brown gets off lightest; he finishes last in the 100m and 400m, but his worst performances are in the 110m hurdles, when he knocks over every hurdle but one and finishes last by several seconds, and the 1500m, when he is so elated by taking an early lead that he closes his eyes and misses the first turn in the track completely, running out of the stadium and out of contention. Freddie Fabulous, the Fremont school champion, collides face first with the bar in the high jump on only his first jump, and trips while gearing up to throw the discus and falls flat on his face. But it's the Ace Obedience School champion, the Masked Marvel (better known as Snoopy), who racks up the most embarrassing failures; he drops the shot on his foot in the shot put, his attempt to hop gracefully over the high jump bar ends in disaster when he lands on the bar instead and is launched halfway across the field, he ends up throwing the discus straight up into the air and unsuccessfully tries to outrun it when it lands again and spins around like a runaway wheel, and he gets his collar stuck on the pole during the pole vault and is launched halfway across the field again. Peppermint Patty later tells Charlie Brown that "the Masked Marvel" and Freddie Fabulous also got into a fight on the last lap of the 1500m and were both disqualified. Small wonder Marcie ends up winning the decathlon!

Take That!
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_b53077b3
comment
The short-lived '80s character "Tapioca Pudding" was a Take That! to Merchandise-Driven franchises like Strawberry Shortcake. Her father works in licensing and is planning to put her likeness on lunchboxes and countless other knickknacks. Which is also an example of Hypocritical Humor, when you remember just how much Peanuts merch there is (and if anything there was even more back when that comic was made), but the difference was that Peanuts established itself as a comic strip first, instead of being created solely for merchandising.

Love Triangle
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_b7e0c5ff
comment
Love Triangle: Linus found himself involved in two in the mid-1970s, both involving a cute girl he had a crush on named Truffles. In the first, Linus's rival for Truffles' attention was none other than Snoopy, who displayed unusual Jerkass behavior even by Snoopy standards, taking sadistic pride in Linus's misery. In the second, Linus was the one being fought over, with Sally and Truffles getting into a shouting match over which one of them Linus liked better (it was in this 1977 storyline that Sally first called him "Sweet Babboo"). Linus was then involved in a third triangle in a 1978 storyline, when he meets Cloud Cuckoolander Eudora and is so flattered by her smiling at him that he gives her his security blanket. Sally, who has worked for so long to get Linus to like her, is not happy, even screaming at him over the phone that she hopes he has a nervous breakdown (which, without his blanket, he was). If Peppermint Patty and Marcie ever have a falling out, it's likely to be over Charlie Brown, whom they both like but who isn't interested in either of them romantically. On occasion, Frieda was depicted as a potential rival for Lucy for Schroeder's affection. This didn't last long, as Frieda was appearing very rarely by the early 1970s (and it also didn't help Frieda's cause that when Lucy asked her if she liked Beethoven, Frieda's reply was, "I'll just have a small glass").

Mondegreen: Subverted in one series of strips. Sally prepares for a Christmas pageant in which "I come out and say, 'Hark!', then Harold Angel starts to sing." Everyone assumes that she's simply confused by the name of the song... until a kid named Harold Angel actually shows up.note Name's the Same: Hopefully, not that Harold Angel. Also played straight a fair bit with Sally, such as a sequence where she believes that Santa Claus wears a yellow sou'wester and rubber boots (having misheard 'reindeer' as 'rain gear'), or her description of Arbor Day as "the day the ships come sailing into the 'arbor".

Taken to extremes in one arc from the mid-1970s, where Charlie Brown runs away from home to avoid the wrath of the Environmental Protection Agency and spends several nights sleeping outside in a cardboard box. There is no hint that his parents are looking for him, or concerned about his whereabouts; in fact, they are not mentioned at all.

Cool Mask: In one story arc, Charlie Brown goes to camp with a paper sack over his head, covering his face except for two eye holes (It Makes Sense in Context). While he's there, nobody knows who he is and some kids decide, as a joke, to have him elected Camp President. While he's Camp President, everyone takes his advice and he's given the credit for anything good that happens. One kid in particular treats him as a hero. Then CB takes the sack off his head, and the kid stares at him and says "They made HIM camp president?!"

Berserk Button: Linus, upon being referred to as Sally's 'Sweet Babboo', or whenever Lydia tells him, "Aren't you kind of old for me?" when he's only three months older than she. Also, in the TV special ''Why, Charlie Brown, Why?, when a bully makes fun of his friend Janice after he takes her hat and reveals her bald head (she has leukemia), he flips out and delivers an epic "The Reason You Suck" Speech. Some others include: suggesting Linus should get rid of his security blanket; also for Linus, insinuating the Great Pumpkin doesn't exist; calling Snoopy "Banana Nose"; insulting Beethoven in front of Schroeder; daring to criticize Lucy for anything she does. (Although in one 1978 storyline, Lucy was simply stunned speechless when Charlie Brown told her she wasn't perfect, and later on regretted not having hit him for that.) Peppermint Patty once slugged another kid for calling her "Sir" (presumably in imitation of Marcie). She didn't usually go that far with Marcie, except on one occasion in which Marcie kept chanting, "Sir! Sir! Sir! Sir!" at her just to annoy her; Patty hit her with a book and Marcie retaliated by pulling Patty's hair, and the girls ended up in the principal's office. Molly Volley, a minor, tennis-playing character from the '70s and '80s with a hot temper to rival Lucy's, had several, most notably being teased for having fat legs.

comment
Black Bead Eyes Lampshaded in one strip (which is also the page image) when Lucy asks Charlie Brown if he thinks her eyes are beautiful, and he replies, "Yes, they look like little round dots of India ink!" Lucy was actually an aversion in her earliest appearances, when she was depicted as a toddler with prominent Sphere Eyes. Eventually, she (and Linus, and Rerun) were usually shown with small lines on the sides of their eyes to give them a distinctive look from the other characters. Truffles, a minor character introduced in the '70s as a romantic interest for Linus (and Snoopy), was another Sphere Eyes aversion. Spike is another aversion, having also been depicted with Sphere Eyes in his earliest appearances, which soon changed to his more iconic "sad/drooping" eyes look.

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: To a mild extent, with Lucy and Charlie Brown (and more with Lucy and Linus). Charles Schulz even admitted as much in an interview; he found that girls being mean to boys was funny, while the other way around, not so much. In one Sunday strip where Charlie Brown actually did strike back and hit Lucy, he felt so guilty about it afterward that he sought advice afterward at Lucy's psychiatric booth, at which Lucy immediately evened the score by slugging him back.

Show Within a Show: In the animated specials, at least, Snoopy was a fan of The Bunnies, apparently a series of children's books about the comedic adventures of a family of hyperactive rabbits that were also adapted into animated shorts. In the strip the book series is called 'The Six Bunnie-Wunnies', and is written by Miss Helen Sweetstory. Snoopy develops a raging crush on her at one point, until he learns she's a cat person.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Many. Schulz had absolutely no qualms about dropping a character if he didn't think they were interesting enough or had run out of ideas for them. The majority of the core cast from the strip's first year got this. Shermy disappeared in the late 60's; Violet and Patty got Demoted to Extra sometime in the early 70's, only appearing in crowd scenes. Only Charlie Brown and Snoopy stayed until the end. Also getting the axe over the years were Charlotte Braun (in her case literally), Frieda, Eudora, and 5, to name a few.

Let's See YOU Do Better!: During the animation process of one of the animated specials, Charles Schulz oversaw Bill Melendez's animation process and constantly objected to his decisions. After Melendez handed a pen to him and said this phrase, Schulz never interfered with the animators again. In the strip, Linus and Snoopy are often confronted with this challenge, and typically, they do. Sally did once as well. Charlie Brown, irritated with his sister for laughing at his inability to draw a circle using a compass without smudging it, told her to see if she could do better - and she did: "It's all in the wrist."

Yank the Dog's Chain: One cartoon had Charlie Brown's baseball team win their first game ever (with Charlie Brown, that is - with him absent they won a few)...then have to forfeit because Lucy's baby brother Rerun had broken a rule. Ironically, Rerun had also been the chief reason they had won the game in the first place. One story arc had Charlie Brown's team in the championship game. Charlie Brown balks and ends up losing the game as the other team gets an extra run added to their score for the balks.note  In baseball, a balk is an illegal movement by the pitcher.

Felony Misdemeanor: A 1959 storyline has Charlie Brown losing a book from the library, leading to Lucy accusing him of having "stolen" it and Charlie Brown working himself up to a state of stark terror at the imagined consequences. Used a couple of times in later years with Sally. In a 1967 storyline, Sally took a crayon home from school and broke it, and, afraid that her teacher would "give her a judo chop" if she confessed to the truth, lied to her teacher about it; Charlie Brown finally shamed her into feeling guilty about it by yelling "GEORGE WASHINGTON!!!!" at her. And in a 1978 storyline, Sally borrowed a ruler from one of her classmates. After the ruler ended up broken when Sally tried to measure the width of the street in front of the school (with a 12-inch ruler), she again put off dealing with the issue (despite admitting she was afraid that the ruler's owner would retaliate). However, this time she did the right thing in the end and bought the kid a new ruler.

We Want Our Jerk Back: In He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown, Snoopy is sent away to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm (at least, that was the plan) when his antics finally go too far in annoying the other kids. After Snoopy's departure, however, the kids realize just how much they miss Snoopy's antics and want him to come home later.

The adults in This Is America, Charlie Brown. They were everywhere; again, this was needed for the concept — a look at famous American historical events, inventions, and music — to work, plugging in the kids as a Universal-Adaptor Cast of sorts. And, unlike most of the above examples, we even see their faces.

Mistakes Are Not the End of the World: In the book "You're a Big Brother, Charlie Brown", set during Sally's infancy, Charlie yells at her for messing up his favorite jigsaw puzzle, but then feels bad about it. Linus tells him that mistakes happen and siblings can get along, and that therefore he should not feel too bad. However, Lucy then yells at him for taking her comic book.

No Name Given: Unnamed characters include the Little Red-Haired Girl (though in one or two specials she was given the name Heather), Charlie Brown's pencil-pal, all the parents (most of them do have family names, though), and "Pig-Pen". Technically, Lydia. She usually introduces herself with a completely different name every time she appears (eg. "Today, my name is Susan"). Lydia is however the only name we see her use more than once, so it is generally accepted as her real name.

Nightmare Fuel

That's right, not even Peanuts was immune to censorship. At least on the television, and namely It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown. Twice during the story's central football game, Lucy pulls the ball away from Charlie Brown, as per the usual, causing the play to fail... and Peppermint Patty blames CB in both of these instances. Viewers protested because it was Lucy's fault, so future airings and releases of the special to this day censor those two instances (but miss others!) of PP's blame. This, however, could add Nightmare Fuel to the special because the "offending" lines were backmasked. Incidentally, you can hear the original lines here and here.

Asleep in Class
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_d2431598
comment
Asleep in Class: Peppermint Patty is always falling asleep in class. It's been suggested in the strip that the reason for this is she stays up too late at night (possibly out of fear, since her father is often away from home on business). Marcie, who sits behind her, will either try to wake her up or play tricks on her while Peppermint Patty is asleep. Marcie herself has fallen asleep in class on a few occasions. In one instance, she had to get up early to be at her school patrol post on time, but fell asleep at her classroom desk. The first character depicted as falling asleep in class may actually have been Linus (March 14, 1970 strip). He explained, once awakened, that although he'd had a good night's sleep, "sleeping is like eating" and the nap was "my dessert."

Littlest Cancer Patient: Janice (literally) in Why, Charlie Brown, Why? Lila in Snoopy, Come Home. Charlie Brown himself in a series of strips. While it's not made clear exactly what lands him in the hospital (he takes himself to the emergency room after a ball game, complaining only of 'feeling kinda woozy...'), he spends an implied several weeks there, while all of the other characters fret about his survival. Lucy even vows never to pull the football away again, if only he gets better. The series of strips also resulted in hundreds of thousands of "Please get well" cards from fans around the world.

Loads and Loads of Characters: The Musical adaptation You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown largely worked from the early era of the comic, and included Patty - not Peppermint Patty, but another cast member, actually one of the first - as a character. She became a minor character as the years passed thanks to this trope, so when the show was revived on Broadway in the late 1990s, a rewrite dropped her and brought in Sally instead.

What the Hell, Hero?: Everyone does this to Charlie Brown when he trades Snoopy for five players from Peppermint Patty's team. In A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Peppermint Patty bitches and moans about the shoddy Thanksgiving feast (toast, popcorn, jelly beans). Marcie angrily tells her that she invited herself to the dinner, and that she has no right to complain. Charlie Brown and Linus angrily tell off Frieda for reporting Snoopy to the Head Beagle when he refused to chase rabbits. Linus yells at Charlie Brown for blowing every single chance he had to talk to the Little Red Haired Girl before she moved away.

Suddenly Voiced: In most of the animated specials and films, Snoopy was The Speechless (though his thoughts could be read in the comic strip). However, in the adaptations of the two Broadway musicals and during some segments of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, he actually gained a voice for his internal monologues. This, however, had a backlash effect to fans who felt it didn't fit him. Thus subsequent animated adaptions left Snoopy voiceless once again.

My Dad Can Beat Up Your Dad

comment
My Dad Can Beat Up Your Dad: Violet was very prone to bragging about her father, and got shot out of the saddle for it just as frequently. In most of the strips in which Violet brags about how much better her father is than Charlie Brown's, he simply shrugs it off and/or agrees with her, but in the Father's Day 1964 strip, he interrupts her and takes her to his dad's barber shop, telling her that however busy his dad may be, he always looks up and smiles at Charlie Brown whenever he enters the shop. A deflated Violet trudges off, wishing Charlie Brown a happy Father's Day. In one strip, Violet brags to Lucy that her dad has excellent bowling averages in three weeknight leagues. Lucy simply says that her dad spends his weeknights at home. When Violet points out to 5 that her dad is taller than his, 5 retorts that his dad goes to PTA meetings, implying hers does not.

A Sunday Strip from the early 1970s saw Snoopy (as Joe Cool) remark, "I see they're showing Citizen Kane again… I've only seen it 23 times." It later became something of a Running Gag to have a character keeping track of how many times he/she had seen Citizen Kane.

Rescue Arc: October/November of 1980 saw a lengthy Beagle Scout arc that started with the troop's only girl, Harriet, getting arrested while the troop was camping in the woods (having gone into town with the boys one night and ended up starting a fight with some blue jays, resulting in being detained by the Humane Society). Charlie Brown gets her out, but they get lost in the woods trying to get her back to Snoopy. After hearing about it from Sally (who has again started moving into Chuck's room), Peppermint Patty and Marcie form a rescue party. Then it starts snowing.

The End of the World as We Know It: A 1980 summer-camp story arc has the entire main cast (including Snoopy) packed away to some sort of evangelism camp, where one of the guest speakers terrifies Peppermint Patty with his talk about Doomsday and "the last days." Patty realizes she's been had when Marcie informs her the camp is soliciting $8 million worth of donations to upgrade its facilities. In an earlier Sunday strip from 1973, Sally overhears the announcer on a televised golf tournament use the phrase, "There's no tomorrow!", takes this to mean the end of the world is at hand, and runs around the neighborhood whipping Linus and Snoopy up into a panic.

Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Nobody (except Charlie Brown) ever seems to think it odd that a beagle is riding atop his doghouse in full WWI Flying Ace getup, among many other things (Marcie even participates in the WWI fantasy on occasion, as a 'simple French lass' with whom he shares wistful root beers in little cafes). A running gag was that Peppermint Patty thinks Snoopy is a "funny-looking kid with [a] big nose." In fact, Snoopy provokes most of the moments like these. This is averted in one of Franklin's early appearances where he encounters, in rapid succession, Lucy's psychiatric booth, Snoopy doing the Flying Ace thing, and Linus talking about the Great Pumpkin, at which point he proclaims to Charlie Brown that the neighborhood is just too weird and goes home.

Breakout Character
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_da0eeab5
comment
Breakout Character: Snoopy. The first couple of years of the strip had him being a non-entity who never spoke and was treated as a secondary character. But he quickly became arguably the most famous character of the series. There's a reason the official name of the strip's website was "snoopy.com" for much of the internet era (both before and years after Schulz's death). Alternatively, you have Lucy (upstaging original female lead characters Patty and Violet) and Peppermint Patty, who had her own supporting cast of sorts (Franklin, Marcie, and occasionally José Peterson). Schulz admitted in the liner notes to one book that Peppermint Patty was probably the only one of his characters besides Charlie Brown who could carry a strip by herself. In the late 1950s, the strip had a heavy focus on Lucy and Linus; they both tended to appear in more strips than Charlie Brown, along with Snoopy. It could be because for much of the first decade of the strip, Lucy and Linus were the only kids to be siblings, while the rest of the kids were only children, prior to Charlie Brown's sister Sally being born in 1959.

comment
Writers Cannot Do Math: In one strip Peppermint Patty is asked to solve a (word) algebra problem involving relative ages. Peppermint Patty gives up without trying, but if you actually work out the problem, you'll discover that the father is only 9 years older than his daughter! The father would be 11, the daughter 2, and the son 5.

If You Die, I Call Your Stuff: Sally asks Charlie Brown if she can have his room, should something happen to him while he's away at summer camp. Sometimes she doesn't even wait for him to go to camp - once she started moving her things into his room while he was out shopping.

No Antagonist: Since even Lucy's bullying is offset by her usual good intentions, there isn't really a villain per se for most of the time, and the ones that exist are all mental. The Red Baron is an antagonist in Snoopy's imagination, the kite-eating tree seems to be how Charlie Brown's mind is able to accept so much bad luck with kites, and that was it for a number of years. The animated special Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown! broke tradition and added a team of no-good bullies from parts unknown to torment the gang.

Absurdly Sharp Claws: The cat who lives next door to Charlie Brown and Snoopy is able to rip large portions of Snoopy's doghouse off in a single swipe, though it's unclear whether this demonstrates sharpness or sheer brute strength. Either way, you wouldn't want to meet that feline in a dark alley.

Musical Episode: Both stage musicals, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Snoopy!!!, were adapted into '80s animated specials. Also It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown and Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown (both of which coincided with Stacy Ferguson's tenure as Sally). And the first movie, A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The later movies also had insert songs, but they weren't performed by the kids themselves.

Last-Name Basis: Schroeder, probably. An early strip had a radio announcer credit "Mr. Schroeder" with a request he wrote in. It's possible that he insists on being called by his last name in homage to people referring to Beethoven that way, but if this is the case, we never learned his first name.

Literal-Minded: Many of the characters have moments where they misinterpret figures of speech by taking them at face value. For example, in There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown, after Charlie Brown walks Marcie home, she kisses him on the cheek and tells him that he can think of it as a goodnight kiss from Peppermint Patty, whom Marcie says "kinda likes you." A lovestruck Charlie Brown promptly goes home, dials Peppermint Patty's house, and thanks her for the goodnight kiss, leading Peppermint Patty to conclude that he's flipped his lid.

The Show Must Go Wrong
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_e3edc213
comment
The Show Must Go Wrong: Snoopy's magic show in It's Magic, Charlie Brown. Almost none of his tricks go as planned... His first two tricks - pulling a rabbit (well, Woodstock with rabbit ears tied to his head) out of a top hat and the "linking rings" trick - seem to work, but a heckler in the front row ruins the effect by shouting "That's no rabbit!" for the first trick and challenging Snoopy to take the rings apart again for the second (at which Snoopy fails). The beagle conjurer forcibly shuts up the heckler both times. Things go downhill when Snoopy starts recruiting members of the audience to assist him. Franklin volunteers for the "stick through the box" trick, but instead of appearing to pass through his body, the stick jabs him in the head, causing him to leap out of the box in agony. Peppermint Patty ends up worse off when she volunteers for the "amputation-decapitation cabinet" trick and has her head, torso, and legs scrambled, with Snoopy apparently unable to put her back together again until she finally forces her way out of the cabinet. A "demonstration of telepathy" is more successful - which may have something to do with the fact that Marcie, to whom Snoopy whispers the identities of the objects Sally is holding, is not blindfolded - but a "cut and restore" trick for which Lucy volunteers a horrified Linus' blanket goes badly as Snoopy is able to do the first part but not the second. The sight of his blanket still in pieces when Snoopy pulls it out of the hat causes Linus to faint dead away. Lucy herself ends up on the stage for the next trick, a levitation act. It seems to work at first, as Snoopy puts a blanket over her and makes her rise into the air, then sweeps a hoop down her body to show that there are no wires holding her up - but as he is bowing to the audience's applause, Lucy abruptly falls out of the air with a thud. After returning to the audience in a daze, Lucy supplies a third volunteer, this time going from the unwilling to the unwitting as Charlie Brown is summoned to the stage for a disappearing act. Judging from Snoopy and Marcie's shocked reactions when the blanket is removed to reveal that he really has disappeared, they were not expecting the trick to work as it did. And when a sudden rainstorm breaks out and the audience and other performers flee, the invisible Charlie Brown is left alone on stage. In the comics, any school play is guaranteed to be full of flubbed lines and missed cues, as in these two storylines both adapted into the script of the second Peanuts Christmas special, It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992). Sally is given a part as an angel in a Christmas play in a 1983 storyline, with only one word to say: "Hark!" When Sally's cue comes, she freezes briefly before yelling out, "Hockey Stick!" In a 1988 storyline (also adapted into It's Christmastime Again...), Marcie is cast as Mary in the school Christmas play while Peppermint Patty is stuck playing a sheep - and yet even saying "Baa!" is too much for her to remember, as when she and Marcie take to the stage, she panics and blurts out "Woof! Meow! Moo! Whatever!" to riotous laughter from the audience and angry embarrassment from Marcie, who drags her offstage with her shepherd's crook. Although it's likely Patty flubbed the scene on purpose, as she had been insanely jealous that Marcie had been cast as Mary and not her ("MARY NEVER WORE GLASSES!!!") and she had remembered to say "Baa!" earlier in the show, but at the wrong time...

Art Evolution
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_e43c66bd

Art Evolution: The earliest Peanuts strips have much cleaner, more three-dimensional artwork... which, admittedly, looks really weird nowadays. By the mid-'60s the look of the strip and its characters had more or less settled into what we're all familiar with. Over the final decade or so of the run, meanwhile, the art became scratchy and squiggly due to Schulz's decreasing motor skills.

Very Loosely Based on a True Story: A 1966 storyline, involving Snoopy's doghouse catching fire and burning to the ground, was inspired by a fire at Schulz's studio in Sebastopol, CA earlier that year. (This sequence became Harsher in Hindsight in 2017 when the house Schulz lived in up until his death got destroyed in the California wildfires). A story arc about Charlie Brown ending up in hospital for weeks on an end was based on Schulz going through a bypass surgery that included a similarly lengthy recovery period.

The Chew Toy

Charlie Brown was, incredibly, a happy and self-confident young child in the earliest strips before he became the universe's Chew Toy. Admittedly, given how Shermy openly insulted him at every opportunity, it's no shock C.B. ended up so broken. Looking at the 50s strips, it's almost jarring - some strips ended with Charlie Brown either chasing someone or being angrily chased for pulling a prank on someone.

He Who Must Not Be Seen

He Who Must Not Be Seen: Any and every adult in the strip. Occasionally, especially in the strip's early years, adults would be given speech bubbles and address the kids from off-panel, though more often only the kids' reactions and answers are shown and the adults are neither shown nor directly heard from. In the animated adaptations, this was recreated by the famous "muted trumpet" sound that played whenever adults were talking. The Little Red-Haired Girl (in the strip, although she did appear onscreen – much to Schulz's vocal dismay – in the special It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown). Snoopy's nemesis World War II, aka "that stupid cat next door." Charlie Brown's pen/pencil pal. Sally wasn't seen until about three months after her birth.

Insistent Terminology
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_e563bf09
comment
Insistent Terminology: Snoopy's fantasy alter egos are almost always "The World-Famous (X)", even if it's absurd. (For example, if he gets roped into being a golf caddy, his Internal Monologue cuts to "Here's the World-Famous Caddy stepping out on the green...") In Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, Linus takes pains to point out that he's not in love with Miss Othmar... he's merely fond of the ground on which she walks. Schulz himself seemed to use a lot of outdated terminology with surprising persistence, such as "tricks or treats" instead of "trick or treat", and "good-by" instead of "goodbye". The characters get "slivers" instead of "splinters".

In one strip, Lucy and Linus's parents are surprisingly cool with Linus staying at the pumpkin patch until 4:00 A.M. waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear. Which, if Linus's anguished reaction to his babysitting grandmother's making him come in at 9:00 on Halloween 1968 is any indication, may be a regular occurrence.

No Ending: The last true strip (the actual last strip is a letter from Schulz to his fans accompanied by recycled artwork) has Charlie Brown explaining his vast knowledge of love letters to Sally; when she notes his expertise, the punchline has him saying "If I ever got one, I don't know what I'd do." A very poignant kind of No Ending.

Improbably Predictable: In one Sunday Strip, Linus and Lucy drew pictures for their grandmother. Linus had Lucy take the drawings and ask which one Grandma liked better. He successfully predicted that Grandma would like both drawings equally. Linus predicts to Lucy that if an adult is asked, "We have Mother's Day and Father's Day... why isn't there a Children's Day?" the adult will answer, "Every day is Children's Day." When Lucy tries it, Linus is proved right.

Refrain from Assuming: The iconic instrumental theme song isn't called "Peanuts" or "Charlie Brown". It's actually called "Linus and Lucy". Also, The Coasters' 1959 hit song "Charlie Brown" has nothing to do with Peanuts (despite the growing popularity of the comic strip at that time and the signature line "Why is everybody always pickin' on me?" being something the Peanuts character likely would have wondered or said). Songwriter Jerry Leiber said he just chose the name "Charlie Brown" because of its simplicity.

comment
Early-Bird Cameo: Inverted. Frieda appeared in The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show (and got name-checked in its opening theme song) despite having disappeared from the strip at least ten years prior. Similarly, Violet, who was Demoted to Extra in the '70s, got an appearance in the 2006 TV special He's a Bully, Charlie Brown.

Oddball in the Series
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_f068cba
comment
Oddball in the Series: The television specials The Big Stuffed Dog and It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown. The former is set in the "Real World" and is about a kid and his stuffed Snoopy doll (this and the fact that Charles M. Schulz wrote it are the only things that even make it count as Peanuts)note It was also an Oddball since it aired on NBC when the animated shows were still on CBS. The latter only has Charlie Brown and Snoopy at the very beginning and end, and stars Spike in a Medium Blending adventure with a character played by Schulz's daughter.

Smoking Is Not Cool
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_f1462f0b
comment
Instead of learning from this incident, a few years later, he tried something similar with his "blanket-hating" grandmother, to get her to give up smoking. Once again, the scheme backfired, as Grandma did give up smoking and Lucy hid the blanket from Linus with great relish. This time, however, Linus was more assertive, forcibly grabbing the blanket back from Lucy when she tried to burn it.

True Meaning of Christmas
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_f3909f81
comment
True Meaning of Christmas: Linus reads off part of the Gospel of Luke in the first Christmas special. Yes, folks, the original meaning gets used. In a later Sunday strip which became part of one of the later Christmas specials, Linus tries to explain the True Meaning of Christmas to Sally by quoting the same Scriptural passage, only to give up when Sally, who obviously isn't listening, interrupts him with complaints about how much she hates Christmas shopping. Similarly, the Thanksgiving special has Marcie giving a brief lecture on the True Meaning of Thanksgiving.

RunningGag
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Charlie Brown and Lucy's football. Could it get any more classic? Snoopy and his imaginary fantasies, especially the accursed dogfights with the Red Baron. In some mid-1950s strips, there was a running gag of a character being told that he or she is doing something wrong, and then replying with "Five hundred years from now, who'll know the difference?" In the 90s, there were many strips that used the setup of Charlie lying in bed at night saying "Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask X...Then a voice comes to me out of the dark and says Y." In the early years there was: "Everyone is (engaging in some fad)"..."everyone?"...show Snoopy engaging in the fad..."everyone!" Dislike of coconut. In one strip, Flying Ace Snoopy knows his girlfriend back home doesn't love him anymore when she sends him a box of chocolates filled with coconut. In another, Linus literally becomes hysterical when Lucy offers him a cookie, somehow knowing without even looking at the cookie that it's coconut. In later years, Snoopy's love of cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies. For a while in the late 50s:

Comically Missing the Point
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_fbd285b7
comment
Comically Missing the Point: Lucy takes this to an extreme in Why, Charlie Brown, Why? in which the plot involves Linus's friend, Janice, being diagnosed with leukemia. Linus tells Lucy who at first doesn't care, then becomes afraid that she will catch cancer from Linus because he was in contact with her. After Linus points out her ignorance, she suggests Janice "probably got cancer because she's a creepy kid." Even after Linus continues to explain otherwise, she still doesn't get it and demands that he takes back the glass of milk she asked him to get, only to have Linus verbally own her: "I don't want to catch your crabbiness!" The story of Peppermint Patty's life. On one occasion, she enrolled in - and graduated from - an obedience school for dogs under the mistaken belief that it was an elite private school; on another, she tried to enroll in a school for gifted children under the misconception that "gifted" meant the school gave kids presents. One Sunday strip had the cast playing a game of baseball. Schroeder complains he stubbed his fingers. Charlie Brown asks if he can still play (meaning the baseball game). Schroeder runs home and plays some classical music on his piano, then runs back to the game and assures Charlie Brown he can still play (the piano). Snoopy misinterprets some very brief "thanks for writing" form letters from Six Bunny-Wunnies author Helen Sweetstory as invitations to visit her and write her biography. Charlie Brown, Sally, and Peppermint Patty have a collective case of this in There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown when their schools are on a field trip to an art museum and they lose track of their classmates and enter the supermarket next door instead. They all grab sale fliers as they enter, mistaking them for museum guides, and conclude from reading them that the museum is in such bad financial straits that they are selling off part of their collection - "They must be desperate! They're practically giving the stuff away!" according to Charlie Brown. A stack of tomato cans is interpreted as a pop art installation by Peppermint Patty, while a meat market is declared by Sally to be an exhibit of dinosaur bones (she had no idea they were so expensive, a nod to the rapidly rising price of meat when the special aired in 1973). Only Marcie senses that they have entered the wrong building, but she cannot get anyone to listen to her doubts.

Brick Joke
 Peanuts (Comic Strip) / int_fe0330fb
comment
Brick Joke: The first strip about kicking the football had Violet (not Lucy) moving the ball because she was afraid Charlie Brown would miss and kick her arm. Decades later, Lucy promises to let Charlie Brown kick the football if he gets out of the hospital. When he does, she makes good on the promise… and, sure enough, he misses and kicks Lucy's arm. The strip of December 22, 1962 references the San Francisco Giants' heartbreaking loss in Game 7 of that year's World Series two months earlier, with a despondent Charlie Brown asking, "Why couldn't (Willie) McCovey have hit the ball just three feet higher?" Then, in the January 28, 1963 strip, Charlie Brown (apparently still not quite over it) wails, "Or why couldn't McCovey have hit the ball even two feet higher?"

Once a Season: Several recurring jokes occurred once a year. These included Lucy pulling away the football when Charlie Brown tries to kick it, Linus awaiting the Great Pumpkin, and Schroeder celebrating Beethoven's birthday. There were also strips commemorating D-Day, and Snoopy going to drink root beers with Bill Mauldin every Memorial Day (based on Charles Schulz's real-life ritual with Mauldin, a cartoonist famous for his satirical cartoons on military life during WWII).
