    That’s the way it usually works, Charlie Brown.

    Aren’t these strips now distorted; stretched out horizontally? They also seem to be running out of sequence. And why do they have to be colored after the fact???

    Sigh…..

    Hi Etnier

    GoComics ran 2 weeks of daily Peanuts strips out of sequence at the beginning, from February 14th through 23rd. Those strips were from 1998.

    Beginning February 24th, they are running a series from 1964, and they are going in sequence.

    If you look at the 1998 strips that they ran in February, you will see that they are taller than the ones they are running now, which is why you thought that the ones they are running now look stretched out horizontally. Actually they are correct.

    From 1950 through February 1988, Charles Schulz drew the strip 4 panels wide, and all 4 panels were the same size, like the strip you see today from 1964.

    Beginning on Leap Year Day, 1988, Schulz drew the strip “taller,” so that it was the shape of 3 of the original panels, and it didn’t look as stretched horizontally. Later he began to vary the number and size of the panels within that shape, sometimes using more than 3 and sometimes using only 1 or 2, but always with the taller shape. That’s why the first 2 weeks of GoComics daily strips, from 1998, don’t look as stretched horizontally, they look taller, and the characters look bigger.

    Regarding the color added later to the daily strips, you can tell from this forum that some people like it and some don’t. When these strips were originally run, most newspapers ran the daily strips in black and white, but a few added their own colors for a period of time.

    When I broke my wrist, at first I thought it couldn’t be broken because I could wiggle my fingers. By the time they did an x-ray, the painkillers were kicking in and I didn’t much care.

    I have that huge multi-book set that starts from the very first strip - the characters were younger - Lucy and Sally weren’t even born yet - those times were so fun to see. (loved watching Snoopy go from skinny to his later round self!)

    Anyhoo- who cares if they are colored or not -Peanuts RULES!

    Thank for all the Info, Hobbes….I was wondering why the Strip was different from the one running in the Times.

    …the early/mid 60’s were the classic Years, IMO.
