Sixty-Five Years Ago Today: Celebrating the Good Grief of ‘Peanuts’

Peanuts gang

On October 2nd, 1950, Charles Schulz's Peanuts debuted in nine newspapers for United Features Syndicate. Fifty years later, it concluded with just shy of eighteen thousand strips published in thousands of papers, with the final installment appearing one day after Schulz passed away.

Between those two loci, Peanuts begat a billion-dollar media empire, the modern American comic strip, and a legacy of progressiveness, honesty, and inclusion that endures today. If Peanuts isn't definitively the greatest comic strip of all time, it's probably the most influential, and certainly the most successful, forever altering the dominant styles and subject matter of the funny pages.

Snoopy Flies Again in ‘Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare’ [Preview]


Charles Schulz was a master humorist whose enormous Peanuts library will surely be remembered as one of the great works of the 20th century, and while he will never be replaced, I'm glad to see his work live on with new entry points for modern audiences that may help lead them back to his work.

One of those entry points is the Peanuts movie coming out in November. Another, aptly timed ahead of the movie's release, is next week's original graphic novel Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare, from Jason Cooper and Vicki Scott, published by Kaboom. It's a full-length Snoopy adventure that sees the hound in his World War I Flying Ace mode --- and therefore emboldened and no doubt headed for trouble. Check out an extended ten-page preview.

Good Grief, These Peanuts Figures Are Adorable!


Aside from maybe Ralphie in "A Christmas Story," poor old Charlie Brown is just about the saddest little boy in fiction. Not that he's particularly depressed or bestowed with a bad life -- he's just a bit of a dud, one of those kids from elementary school that you paid little mind to because he was, well, boring...
