At least Lucy lost this time. Of course Beethoven was not the only great classical music composer.
That’s just it-because goldfish couldn’t do such things,none of CB’s friends or CB himself would fall victim to Snoopy’s WWI re-enactments.
What happens in panels 6 and 7 is akin to false rumors getting started, on account of someone only hearing fragments of a conversation—Lucy had heard something about “slugging someone,”and so,spying CB,thinks HE is intending to slug HER. CB,on the other hand,having just shown up,obviously does not know that Linus has just told Sally off,thus CB is confused,himself. Yes,I know that’s the punchline-that and Snoopy pretending he sees a "skirmish"going on,thus knocking the foursome down into a heap.
Just one of those times when you’re reluctant to say something,simply for the sake of tact-“some things are better left unsaid,”as the old saying goes.
No,blame Lucy. LOL at Linus’ look in closing panel:“NICE GOING!”
I guess we’ll never know what the program that Frieda had seen on TV was,but whatever it was,sounds like it was funny;at any rate,definitely worth seeing. Too bad Linus and Lucy couldn’t see it,but again, that was Lucy’s own fault.
And especially considering SHE really is the one to blame,for them being deprived of TV,considering all the times she would deprive Linus of watching his programs by waltzing in and announcing,“SWITCH CHANNELS!”
So really,Lucy is the one who needs to thank herself for being deprived of TV for “God knew how long.”
So true,of course. Of course, this would have been more Lucy’s fault-there were several Sunday strips in the 1960s,where she would tell Linus to “switch channels,”while he was watching what he wanted to watch. Yup,typical Lucy,felt she had every right to wear the pants in little brother Linus’ presence,thus depriving him of what he felt like doing at the moment.
Snoopy sure could go too far in these fantasies of his,be it World War I,or playing hockey-there was another strip from around this general period, where he pretended to be playing hockey,and in so doing,belted Charlie Brown with his hockey stick just as CB showed up with Snoopy’s supper,thus also making a mess of CB,like here.
