    Wow, seems someone decided to go back and get the crayons out.

    Boo!

    Snoopy must be bored.

    He doesn’t have a pitcher like you, Charlie Brown.

    Casey Stengel, huh? I would love to see when this strip was originally published. As a baseball trivia fan, I have a feeling this would have been after the Yankee glory days, when Stengel was leading a hapless bunch of Mets to the worst record in league history.

    @Bruce

    I LIKE it when the crayons come out. If I want historical accuracy I’ll buy the books. :)

    More like a strong inference. I suspect you’re a fellow ENFP, though, with your sentiments closely attached to your inferences and thus tending not to distinguish them.

    Definitely when Casey had the Amazin’ Mets.

    This may be a difficult concept to grasp, but: artists draw differently in black & white than they do in color. There are subtle nuances, textures, things of that nature. Mr. Schulz did NOT draw the daily strip with crayons. For those of you happy about the colorized appearance of these strips: good for you. It has nothing to do with “historical accuracy”, it has to do with the artist’s intent and style.
    If I want to see Peanuts NOT in the form it was intended, I’ll get a child with a box of crayons to produce this format.

    Did Snoopy stay up too late?

    @FanOfPeanuts, if you want to see the original, go back through the archives here to 1964. They haven’t colored them yet, but you won’t likely see as many comments as you will here in the present day. But then in 1964, you wouldn’t see comments like this in your paper or reprint anthology book, either.

    Also, a kid with a box of crayons would not do as good a job as the hired monkey who did the colorizing here, unless the kid is way above average. I’ll take these colors over your color solution any day.

    Maybe he’s just resting his eyes….real hard….and the Z over his head just means….uh……….. Yeah, he’s asleep, poor little puppy!

    He’s the best player you’ve got, Casey. Don’t push your luck!

    The copyright date between panels 2 and 3 appears to be 1964, but it is too small at 200% and really blurry higher than that.
