It provides security AND entertainment.
There must be quite some starch in that blanket of Linus’ to make it fold and fly like that.
Does anyone know how to get rid of the annoying box on the right side of the strip?
I think the February 13 2000 comic and last comic dealt with coming of age. Charlie Brown got a phone call from Sparky’s family. The family member asked for Snoopy. Snoopy was writing Sparky’s obituary. Notice the somber expressions on both of their faces. I find it interesting that peanuts started out innocent and embraced staying in innocence until the final one. The last Peanuts comic is unusually somber and depressing.
You can make a paper airplane out of a blanket?
I know Sparky created this before he died. I think he knew he was close to death before it ended. Sparky died the day before the final strip appeared in newspapers.
Great! Just like a boomerang!
Anything is possible in comic land. Why, YEARS can go by and you never grow up!
Actually, there are a bunch of strips where Linus is mournfully waiting for his security blanket to come out of the dryer. (Once Lucy tossed it to him red-hot, which of course is just one of those little nuisances life tends to hand out to people.) For that matter, we know the blanket can fly, because Lucy turned it into a kite once!
The amazing “Boomerblanket” can be yours for only $19.95 plus S & H!
But wait… if you act right now we’ll double the offer! Just pay the additional S & H…
I was referring to the final comic in my previous post.
Uncle Scrooge, I’m not seeing the box on the strip, but most of the time, that means the page’s code isn’t playing nice with your browser. Check to see if you have the latest version of your browser, or try a different browser. Most are free.
If you don’t know how to do either of these things, mention the OS you have on your computer, and one of the nice people here will help you through the process.
I use a Mac desktop so I can’t help if you use some version of Microsoft.
Oh, and if you run your cursor over the comic strip, you’ll see a shadow box with a magnifying glass on it. Click on that, and the strip will appear by itself in another window. I imagine the intruding box won’t follow it.
Another old fave from long ago come to visit.
You show ’em Linus! He will grow up to have a great retirement plan, exceptional investments in a diversified portfolio.Or maybe he will live in his parents basement.:)
Yeah, kinda frightening! To think that he could fold the blanket up that way one has to wonder how long it’s been since it was washed.
Does anyone else remember “Lariat Sam,” a cartoon that sometimes appeared on “Captain Kangaroo” instead of “Tom Terrific?” Sam could get his lariat to make just about anything. I think it came from the same material as Linus’ blanket.
I wonder if the blanket has a mind of its own??
