    Schulz hated the name Peanuts because to him it meant “littleness” or “cheap.” As in, you can buy something for peanuts. But he was just starting the strip and didn’t have the control with the syndicate he would later.

    Thought the same thing!

    I don’t think it’s completely clear that Snoopy belongs to Charlie Brown at this point.

    I read that Schulz would’ve dropped Pig Pen from the strip altogether, but he was one of the more popular characters.

    It’s interesting that for the first few years it’s not clear—to me, anyway—whose dog Snoopy is. He seems to be more of a neighborhood dog that doesn’t belong to anyone in particular.

    2 strips in and Charlie Brown has a black eye!

    Until Fantagraphics began publishing their Complete Peanuts volumes in 2004, most of the strips from the 1950s had never been reprinted. Previous collections were essentially from the 60s on, as Schulz—ever the perfectionist—thought the early Peanuts didn’t reflect his “best work.”

    I love these series of strips where Snoopy is completely confident but actually has no idea what he’s doing.

    Funny that Snoopy, despite being the WWI Flying Ace, has no idea where France is. . . .

    Happy birthday to Charles Schulz, born on this day in 1922!
