And to think just a few months ago Schroeder was still in sleepers!
early fourth wall, huh?
i don’t know which one. there are no strips with classic music lovers. or are there?
He has a similar reaction to Lucy’s affection.
If Schroeder had said “Pitch Perfect” instead, would Charlie Brown have replied, “That’s a movie?”
I don’t think Schroder is supposed to know about that.
Maybe if Schroeder had a perfect pitch, he’d switch positions with Charlie Brown on the baseball team and make him the catcher.
Similar punch line today in ’Daddy’s Home.’
The first break in the Fourth Wall.
Talking TO the readers (not necessarily about them), is also breaking the 4th wall, and Snoopy did it frequently over the decades. For people interested in a “meta-comic”, look up “Sam’s Strip” the legendary “comic about the comics.” Sam ran a comic strip, and there were gags about comic strip props such as logs for sawing (to indicate people sleeping), speed lines, clouds of dust, and so forth. Many other comic strip characters (most already defunct at the time the strip ran from 1961 to 1963) made appearances, including Charlie Brown once. Mort Walker of “Beetle Bailey” fame and Jerry Dumas were the co-creators. I have the entire run of the strip—but of course it only fills up one book!
Breaking the fourth wall, I see.
Wow, forth wall break
