Peanuts celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2000 and this treasury was one of the first collections to appear in book form since 1995. 

First published in 1947 under the name Li’l Folks, the strip, renamed Peanuts in 1950, featured a cast of children led by Charlie Brown, Schulz’s alter ego in the strip. On the surface, Peanuts did not differ radically from other newspaper comics of its era: the four-panel daily strips featured a simple, almost spare, artistic style and routinely concluded with a joke of some kind, often at Charlie Brown’s expense. The strength of Peanuts lay in the depth of its characters and in Schulz’s ability to connect with his readers through them. 

A Boy Named Charlie Brown (1969) Lucy van Pelt gives Charlie Brown, seated, psychiatric advice in a scene from the animated film directed by Bill Melendez. Animated movie. Comic strip Peanuts. Charles Schulz BRITANNICA QUIZ Peanuts: Are You a Blockhead? Think you know all there is to know about the Peanuts franchise? Test your knowledge about Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang. 

The introspective everyman Charlie Brown stoically dealt with life’s misfortunes—from a kite-eating tree to a football that was always pulled away a moment before he attempted to kick it—with a sigh, a “Good grief!” or, most emphatically, with a “Drat!” Lucy van Pelt, his frequent tormentor and the big sister to his blanket-toting friend Linus, offered psychiatric advice and presented a steely exterior, but she could not resist observing that “happiness is a warm puppy.” Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s beagle, made pithy observations and spent his time engaging in imagined aerial battles with a German World War I flying ace, the Red Baron, and fantasizing himself as jazz saxophonist Joe Cool. 

The strip’s other characters included Schroeder, the Beethoven-obsessed object of Lucy’s desire; Peppermint Patty, a freckled and frequently bewildered tomboy who referred to Charlie Brown as “Chuck”; Marcie, Peppermint Patty’s wisecracking sidekick; and Woodstock, a yellow bird who, in spite of his inexpert flying skills, accompanied Snoopy on his many adventures.
