    I don’t mind the colorizing of these comic strips but that red face on Charlie Brown just bugs me.

    Question…
    Is the Kite-Eating-Tree a Cannibal…??

    The inking of the strip is not something added by GoComics. This was done by Schultz. He often did it to emphasize emotion. This would also be seen in the animated shows.

    I think the coloring is often too intense. I do not remember the colors being that dark when the Chicago Tribune colored the dailies.

    In the 3rd panel Charlie Brown becomes Charlie Red.

    I certainly don’t remember this colorizing on the strips’ first go-round in the papers (and the dailys were never in color) – I don’t like it, it’s like visual canned laughter, cuing us into moods that are already obvious. It’s cheap..

    @Zero-Gabriel

    Why would a kite eating tree be a cannibal? Are trees kites?

    Kite eating trees are not cold, Linus.

    No, but kites are made out of paper, which is made from wood pulp, so technically…

    More specifically, this was done by the Peanuts Studio, who consist of people who knew Schulz well.

    Sigh… OK for the 8th bazillion time:
    Yes, these daily strips were not originally in color. The color has been added, but it has been added by someone who is familiar with Schulz’s style at the time and is a very good imitation of what he would have done. Go back and look at Sunday’s strip and watch Linus turn green, yellow, and red. That is the original coloring from the 60s. Accept it and move on.
