    The humor in the 50s Peanuts is mostly what I would call “whimsical.” And I think that reflected the times, if you look at other strips that were around then. Part of it is that the strip is about kids, which Schulz himself said he drew because that was what he was able to sell at the time.

    Amy, Meredith, and Jill are the names of Schulz’s daughters, so it’s probably not a coincidence they’re included among Snoopy’s admirers.

    She doesn’t. She and Shermy (the boy above) both kind of fade away by the 70s.

    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.
