    The first flying ace strip… how epic.

    She not in Peanuts yet. She’s introduced in 1966, the camp storyline. We’re in the 1965 reruns.

    Calvin is a 2,000 year old genius inventor with a six year old brain. So what did you expect? Him knowing how to use his inventions?

    The minor characters(Roy, Shermy, 5, ect.) never really had much of a personality. The stronger personalitied characters (Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, Sally, Schroeder, Patricia “Peppermint Patty” Reichardt, Marcie ) were much more interesting than a flat person or thing need only for background extras or a line now and then if the particular line is in contrast to all the personalities of the other stronger types. Of course, as we watch these characters be introduced, we will also watch them grow. And as they grow, we find their personalities growing also… encompassing so many aspects that a flat, one or two- line character is no longer needed… And as we watch the cast of strongers grow in number, we can’t help but realize the man behind the board no longer needs a background extra…

    Gocomics doesn’t have about one-sixth of all the Peanuts strips. Just thought I’d warn you.

    Actually, you mind be surprised at how cruel she can sometimes be in the 90’s.

    Roy’s comin’ along in two days. However Charlie Brown befriends him, not the other way around.

    Actually it’s because a girl named “Poochie” started calling him that. Since that, no one ever called him Charlie again, just Charlie Brown. See here:http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1973/01/07
