Poor Patty, it is very sad to be in love, not to be able to say it and to know that you are not reciprocated. And worse, if you also know your rival.
Ah! Unrequited love!!
Peppermint gets a lot of abuse here and she can be overbearing at times. But she is a sad character. Great athlete but not too bright, not too attractive. Then again, who, among the humans, is happy? Lucy, crabby, Linus, insecure, Schroeder, obsessed, Chuck, well Charlie Brown is Charlie Brown. Only Snoopy seems happy. And Marcie, who becomes a regular with this story arc.
Well, get used to it, Linus…you’ll probably be the one that everyone confides in…
Unfortunately for Peppermint Patty, Chuck is clueless when it comes to girls. He can’t see what is around him. In that way he was like me. My wife practically had to beat me over the head to get my attention.
I didn’t realize she was THAT in love with “Chuck”.
I admit to shedding a few tears when seeing a rival and thinking, how can I compete with that? I wasn’t blonde or svelte which seem the requirements at the time. (brains weren’t included)
That’s pretty heavy!
Peppermint Patty is a little red haired girl with her own style.
IIRC, tomorrow’s strip is even sadder as PP will confess her low self esteem.
I married a kind of real life Peppermint Patty and couldn’t be happier. Out of all the Peanuts characters, Patty has the tenderest heart, and you can really see it in this arc.
Wow – she really has it bad for “Chuck!”
Would Love to see Charles draw the little red haired girl.
She thinks she’s crying…wait until Charlie finds out why he was sent home.
Don’t be a wet blanket, Linus!
