    I am glad we don’t see it. The imagination is always worse than reality.

    Very rare to have 8 panels. It was done quite often in the 50s.

    Not sure, buy I’m thinking this first appeared on a Sunday.

    You know, I almost added a spoiler alert to my post, but I decided that there wasn’t really much in the current story arc that could be spoiled. Still, in deference to you and others who might not want to see any upcoming strips, I’ve deleted my original post, since gocomics won’t allow me to edit it.

    It’s all CB’s fault! Clearly he doesn’t know HOW to fly a kite. He let go of the string! He probably didn’t take wind direction into consideration, as well as several other elements. Finally, he should do his kite flying at the beach, where the winds are steady, and there are no trees to be seen for miles and miles.

    The longest Peanuts daily strip ever – 8 panels long!

    @WSR

    No, this was a daily. Schulz simply broke each panel in two. The rigid four panel format had been forced on him by the syndicate, so that papers would have the option of running the strip horizontally, or stacked as a square. He could do this only because it didn’t change the basic dimensions.
    -————————————————-
    In later years, when he had earned the clout to say what he wanted, Schulz finally dropped the 4-square format and drew the strip however he pleased. When this strip first appeared, he didn’t yet have that power.

    @Itchy & Scratchy

    Nope. It’s a daily with the panels cut in half. A Sunday would not have all narrow panels like this. Not back then when formats were more rigid.

    Amazing he drew the strip for almost 40 years before that happened.

    @stcrowe

    yup – the most scared I ever was by fiction was a science fiction play… on the radio.
