Apparently flying wasn’t part of the curriculum at worm school.
According to the Peanuts Wiki, the blanket first appears June 1, 1954. So a while yet. Didn’t see when Snoopy first tries to take it from Linus.
The original strip from 1971 had a second panel that shows Snoopy jumping off his doghouse.
In many strips one can only conclude Snoopy and Charlie Brown had a off-panel conversation. Yet in the context of the strip, it works.
Joyce was the name of Schulz’s first wife.
Given everything he’ll get put through, Charlie Brown’s reaction is very appropriate.
TV shows had much longer seasons back when this strip was written.
Kind of looks like someone was playing music too loudly. Or maybe since they’re birds, singing too loudly.
Toast, along with cold cereal, are long-running staples of Peanuts. About the only things kids could cook before microwaves, I guess.
Here’s the link to one of the golf strips that appeared about six months after this one. http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1954/5/16
