    Could that be Franklin who rescued the Brown siblings’ ball?

    It is indeed Franklin. July 31, 1968.

    Good deal, Charles, you got your ball back…AND…you made a new friend who can help you make a castle that stands straight…

    I’m so used to seeing Franklin only with Peppermint Patty. I didn’t realize he debuted before her.

    Did he, though? We saw her with the proto-Marcie not long ago, though I’m not sure if these strips are always shown in order.

    Yup, it’s definitely Franklin’s first appearance. But he was a denizen of the “other” neighborhood.

    Notice that his head was not round at first- it had that defined cheek line that Charlie Brown is missing.
    -——————————-
    A few characters were introduced as living somewhere outside the regularly shown neighborhood, or even town. Later that division became blurry and was mentioned less.

    Funny how Franklin was ‘swimming out there,’ yet he approaches Charlie Brown, who’s looking out to the water, from the beach behind

    Considering the era in which this strip was created, it is no small feat for Charlie Brown and Franklin to be sharing time at the beach. Yet again, Schulz’s unobtrusive wisdom.

    When left to their own decisions, children are truly color blind…

    Franklin was also one of the few recurring characters in the strip without any, um, eccentricities. Nice, level-headed kid.

    The first ever appearance of Franklin in the Peanuts comic strip originally from 1968.
