First published in 1947 under the title Li’l Folks, the strip, renamed Peanuts in 1950, featured a cast of kids led by Charlie Brown, Schulz’s alter ego from the childhood. On the surface, Peanuts didn’t differ radically from other paper comics of its age: the four-panel daily strips featured a simple, almost spare, artistic style and frequently concluded with a joke of some sort, frequently at Charlie Brown’s expense. The potency of the Peanuts character lay in the depth of its characters and in Schulz’s ability to connect with his readers .
The introspective everyman Charlie Brown simply the best Peanuts character, stoically dealt with life’s misfortunes– by a kite-eating tree or a football that was pulled a moment before he tried to kick itwith a sigh, a big “Good grief!” Or, most emphatically, using a”Drat!” Lucy van Pelt, his regular tormentor and the big sister to his blanket-toting buddy Linus, provided psychiatric guidance and introduced with a steely exterior, but she couldn’t resist observing that “happiness is a warm puppy.”
The strip’s other characters contained Schroeder, the Beethoven-obsessed thing of Lucy’s appetite; Peppermint Patty, a freckled and often bewildered tomboy who called Charlie Brown as”Chuck”; Marcie, Peppermint Patty’s wisecracking sidekick; and Woodstock, a yellow bird that, regardless of his inexpert flying skills, accompanied Snoopy on his many experiences.
At the time of Schulz’s death in 2000, mere hours before his final Sunday strip was printed, Peanuts was operating in over 2,500 newspapers in 75 countries, with a readership that topped 350 million. In the early 21st century, sales of Peanuts merchandise amounted to a billion-dollar-a-year empire, with goods ranging from stuffed animals to clothes to a favorite line of greeting cards.
Snoopy was possibly the most visible Peanuts character, emerging as the corporate mascot for American insurer MetLife and making appearances as a Gigantic balloon at New York City’s yearly Thanksgiving Day parade, and his rivalry with the Red Baron was the subject of a set of novelty tunes by the Royal Guardsmen from the mid-1960s.
