Wow, Grandma didn’t sound like a trumpet with a mute.
If this were in audio, the grandmother would do the “waa-waa-waa” thing like all the grown-ups do.
I wonder if this is the blanket-hating grandmother.
…a budding psychiatrist (?)
I think you folks are mixing up the strip with the animated cartoons. The adults speak normally in the strip but in the cartoons they sound like muted horns.

I’m like Linus….I love being right, too.
How do you write onomatopoeia for garbled trumpet sounds, like how the adults would speak in the animated Peanuts cartoons?
The only other time that I can recall was Linus’s mom telling him to put down the gun (he was pointing his finger at Lucy and saying, ‘Bang!’)
What’s really strange is Lucy not saying a word and then doing what Linus told her to do. This is Bizarro Peanuts!
Round of applause for Linus!
In the earlier days of “Peanuts,” adults often spoke “off-camera,” but it was usually in the Van Pelt household. The “waa waa waa” was invented solely for TV.
This is the first time I see actual words said by an adult in Peanuts, although according to the link Skywatcher68 provided, is not the first time. Usually one would see some of the children staring at an adult while (s)he speaks.
In the few animated cartoons I have seen, the adults always did the trombone sound, except for one where Peppermint Patty had to figure skate and Marcie made her a denim costume, wich turned out awful. Don´t even remember the name of the TV special or show episode.
I think Schulz liked his joke so much that he was willing to risk breaking his usual rules to get it across.
@Snoopy_FanJust want to thank you for your kind, supportive comment on Friday. You made some excellent points.
I always love the Autumn. The weather sounds perfect where you are.
I hope you have an excellent week!xxx
I have this strip this should have been last Sunday which was Grandparents’ Day, who agrees with me??!!!!!
that was one of the times Peppermint Patty wore a dress
Fun fact! It’s actually a slowed down recording of a trombone. Pretty neat huh?
Charlie Brown’s mother speaks in the November 7, 1950 strip. From off-panel she says “Charlie! Charlie Brown!”. This is the earliest example of which I’m aware.
Yes! I’m a bit surprised. I didn’t think adults ever directly said anything in Peanuts.
