    When someone says to me, “Try to stay calm … I have terrible news!” in THAT tone of voice, the last thing I’m going to do is stay calm!

    When I read this in Spanish, Lucy said, “Calm down, I have terrible news”, which, of course, was an oxymoron.

    Must work for IBM. Back then it was called “I’ve Been Moved”

    I suppose from Minneapolis to St Paul. Big deal.

    When I was a kid, I dreamed of “having” to move. When I finished college, I moved…on.

    I remember this. Schulz got a lot of backlash from people who didn’t want to see him write Linus and Lucy out of the strip.

    I remember this series of strips and I remember this being adapted into a TV special.

    remember this. Schulz got a lot of backlash from people who didn’t want to see him write Linus and Lucy out of the strip.[/quote] Yeah. That’s hard to imagine since at this point the Van Pelt family (minus Rerun) were regular characters for about a decade. I’m surprised Schulz would have made such a big decision like that. I guess he wanted to make space for new characters such as Peppermint Patty and Roy (Marcie didn’t come along until a few years later). It’s something to think about.

    @Rufus The naked mole rat

    He never meant to write them out; only to spin a story that would create some interest. He knew at the beginning it would end with them coming back. In retrospect he said that if he had known how big a reaction it would get, and how invested readers were in the characters, he;d have played it out longer. He thought he brought them back too soon.

    Starting the arc of Linus and Lucy temporary moving away.

    No, by the early 1960’s Charles Schulz left Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota and moved to Santa Rosa, California.

    I don’t remember this at all so it will be fun to read through it. I agree they could never have removed Lucy and Linus from the strip. While we can live without Lucy we can’t live without Linus!
