    I’d feel exactly like this if I had to open the door to a group of teenagers. I’d worry they were going to vandalize my property, or even force their way inside. I’m really glad that the trick-or-treating custom is gradually dying out. I’ll be locking my doors, lowering my blinds, turning out all the lights, and hoping they don’t see any glow from my TV. Trick-or-treating is legalized trespassing and robbery.

    Hmm. I wonder if there’s ever been a case where a small child got into an attic, thought it was filled with cotton candy, and tried to swallow the insulation. Something else to be careful of when baby-proofing a house, I suppose. I remember that I could climb the ladder into my grandmother’s attic by the time I was 4 or 5. Luckily it was just filled with old toys and other treasures, and no insulation.

    Sorry, I meant “Broomhilda”.

    I wonder why GoComics doesn’t publish the strip in color if it’s available? My guess would be that they have to pay extra, and Brunhilda doesn’t have high enough ratings for them to decide to pay the coloring fee.

    @mugens, Oh, dear. I think you meant “condescension”, but it’s condescending for me to point that out, isn’t it? What a conundrum. I’m guessing that was an auto-correct problem in your device. Those auto-correct programs cause so many problems, I just keep mine turned off. The point of the comic and of your post is still good, but that little malapropism kind of messes it up a bit, no?

    There were no cell phones in common use when this was printed. The only way to make a call out in public was to find a phone booth.

    Fear of spiders and snakes is a survival instinct, because both of those things are aggressive, bite, and many are poisonous, some lethally so. A human child (or adult) who just happily walks up to spiders and snakes and tries to play with them would probably not live very long in more primitive times, and sometimes even today. Thus, the instinctive fear evolved.

    “Finis” means “the end”, related to the English word “finish”.

    EDIT: Whoops, I just looked up Peppermint Patty on Wikipedia, and apparently she’s a totally different character from the “Patty” in the 1950’s. Schultz created her as a new character during the 1960’s.

    @Hobbes, I see from the July 1952 Peanuts strip that Lucy was a crabby complainer from the beginning, but Charlie Brown’s character got changed from mischief-maker to lovable loser, and Patty went from girl-next-door to tomboy and also got an appearance change to her “mousy-blah” hair and freckles. Such interesting history. Keep ’em coming. :)
