    She made quite a first impression.

    For the record “Lucille”, “Chuck” was also surprised when Peppermint Patty first called him “Chuck.”

    It is interesting to look at this period in the Peanuts history when the likes of Peppermint Patty, Franklin, Marcie, Woodstock and eventually Rerun came on the scene, while the likes of Shermy, Patty and Violet faded away or disappeared altogether. I know that some disagree, but I believe that Schulz was great at re-tooling and renewal.

    “It be a fine time to leave us, Lucille.”

    At least she doesn’t call them Chubby Chuck and Lucy Lizard.

    She can’t do anything with Linus or Schroeder – or can she?

    I tend to agree, although I would’ve said for a while that his weakest period was in the early 80’s for focusing on too much Snoopy and Woodstock. However, now that I actually have those books from that period,, I actually think that was much funnier than I had thought.

    These strips introducing P. Patty got me thinking that the original characters were Schulz’s perception of kids in the 1950s, before he had his own. And P. Patty, Marcie, and others were more “modern,” from his own children’s generation. The idea would sort of repeat itself with grandchildren when Rerun became the focus of many strips in the 90s.

    Cooncat gets post of the day, that was GREAT!! And thanks a lot for putting that song into my head as an earworm…

    One of the fun and aggravating things about Peppermint Patty is that she totally lives in her own world, has no filters, and never considers that her ideas or remarks are not appropriate or might be flat out wrong. She’s a pistol.

    Peppermint Patty is one of those great fictional characters who, as soon as you meet her, you know exactly who she is. Schulz came up with her from looking at a plate of peppermint patties on a table before him. It was like Athena springing fully formed and fully armed from the brow of Zeus.

    Speaking of some of those older characters, I wish they would run a couple of weeks of strips from the first year of Peanuts. I have the first book of collected strips (original copy), and people would be shocked at what the characters looked like and how few of them there were. Linus wasn’t born yet (showed up in the second year). I believe that Schroeder appeared as a baby at the very end of that first year. It was CB, Lucy, Shermy, Patty, Violet, and PigPen.

    You can find every Peanuts strip that Schulz ever drew on this very website. Just go onto the calendar icon above the fourth panel of the comic strip and select any date you like. The four original characters, by the way, were Charlie Brown, Patty, Shermy and Snoopy. Violet and Schroeder were added to the strip just a little later, in 1951, Lucy and Linus debuted in 1952, and Pig-Pen first appeared in 1954.
