    Charlie Brown is suffering from anxiety, which as far as I can tell/remember, was not treated in any way back then other than telling kids to “buck up” and whatnot. I just came to the realization that when I read these strips as a kid, I thought the way Charlie Brown looked at the world was normal and natural. I fretted needlessly over things, tried like crazy not to draw attention to myself to avoid ridicule, and treated my crushes on girls with utter panic. I got over these things eventually, but that last one only very recently and with tremendous effort. I try not to dwell overmuch on the past, but it’s hard to ignore so much precious time wasted. My life is great right now, but I’d have thought it all an impossible dream as little as 5 years ago.

    Ha! Greg had to draw Gunther’s eyes looking askance at Mr. Gray, forcing him to put a little white in those dot-eyes. Works, but kinda creepy.

    This strip appeared on February 16, 1968. Isn’t it likely Schultz was just listing popular female names from his childhood?

    “And my mother had thrown the snowball away. So I went back outside and I spit on him!” – Is my memory close?

    It would have been more accurate to have Nancy’s thought be the same as the other kids’. Funnier, too.

    Why would he break a date with Nancy? She’s such a delight! I suppose it could have been a rough week panhandling for Sluggo, so he couldn’t afford to pay for a “date” with Nancy. Stupid poor people! Stay mad, Nancy! How dare he spend his begging money on food instead of you!

    Considering what he’s been through and the changes in his life, I am certain his mom will start calling him “Gunther” and will begin to treat him as more of an adult than man-child. She’ll NEED him to be more adult anyway, to help him get through the idea of “Mommy Dating” some guy. She’s a good mom- she’ll be proud of him and not angry.

    So, Sluggo can’t afford to eat in the diner with Nancy and is eagerly awaiting her table scraps. Nancy, his sort-of girlfriend, is annoyed at that. Hilarious!

    They’re all leaning against nothing.

    I hope the green shirt means Knute is next in line for a change. He needs to grow up more than anyone. I suggest drug overdose. Then let commenters here decide by vote if he survives or not. Sure, it’s been done, but he’s just so boring and predictable… oh, and I voted for Robin to die (yeah, I’m old).
