    Were I Charlie Brown, I’d drop those friends like a bad habit. They planned a “testimonial dinner” in his honor then dropped out at the last minute because they felt that holding one was hypocritical. What they did in the end was the epitome of cruelty.

    At least they could have had the diner without the testimonial.

    Think of it this way: this dinner with all the hypocritical praise would be great practice for getting into politics.

    A rare strip with Peppermint Patty and the original Patty in the same panel.

    I’m surprised that Linus would be the one to cancel the dinner. I expected him to be the only holdout. Instead, the lone holdout is Woodstock!

    How remarkable!! This is the one and only time that we see Patty and Peppermint Patty standing in each other’s vicinity in the whole history of the strip. It’s just a shame that Schulz doesn’t show them interacting with each other in any way, which leads me to wonder whether the two girls even know each other. What do readers think?

    There was nothing hypocritical about it. They were (or could have been) honoring his effort, his dedication to the team and the sport and his tenacity, his love for baseball.

    It’s easy to honor a winner, even one that wins a world series once every 50 years. It’s much harder (and character building) for someone with Charlie Brown’s record to keep playing the game, keep organizing a team and not just quit and go home.

    Maybe you’re not hypocrital, but all of you are really selfish, you only think about how bad this will feel for you, but you don’t think about Charie Brown’s feelings.

    They could’ve just said the truth, what motivated them to have the dinner in the first place. They wanted to do something nice. You don’t have to be insincere to be kind.

    You know how you’d see headlines about Sparky like “The Suprising Dark Side of America’s Favorite Cartoonist”? I think of story lines like this and then I read those headlines and I just can’t stop laughing. Did any of these people actually READ Peanuts?!?

    The friends have failed to appreciate the leader who might not be very skilful but there was no dearth of sincerity on his part to lead the team.

    I never thought less of Charlie Brown’s friends than I did when I saw this. They set up a situation to honor him, then go out of their way to humiliate him. I’m glad Woodstock stuck with him, at least.

    I’ve noticed that CSchulz had somewhat of a mean streak to his humor. Bashing CB all the time, the verbal abuse to CB in all the tv specials, and the dark personality of Lucy. The real scary part is the readers who laugh and find humor in the abuse of another – even a cartoon character.

    Man, I grew up with Peanuts. How did I not understand the cruelty? Sort of like going back and re-reading Calvin and Hobbes…Calvin is a jumbo jerk. Reading the Charles Shultz Bio is recommended reading to understand….

    Comics are often a reflection of real life or experience of the cartoonist – camouflaged in “humor”.

    When you consider that Sparky wrote Charlie Brown as an autobiographical character, what must he have suffered to be able to create this type of strip?

    And, oh, by the way, who didn’t see this coming 2 weeks ago?

    You know what’s hypocritical, Linus? You never sticking up for Charlie Brown when people are bullying him, but it’s okay to stand up for some girl when people are bullying her! Granted, said girl was in a bad state, but you’re supposed to be Chuck’s best buddy!

    Face it, Charlie Brown. It’s not you, it’s them. As soon as you graduate high school, at age 18, volunteer for the U.S. Air Force. There, you will find all the brothers and sisters you will ever need. Never look back! Never go back!

    Even after Charlie Brown gave everyone he knows a Valentine’s Day card, he only got a pity Valentine card, from Patty, who wrote over a card she had received.

    Yeah, uh-huh, your foolish stupid pride is SO important that you’re willing to hurt your friend’s feelings, right Linus? Even though you’re the one who had the idea to throw a party in the first place, right?

    Yeah, you’re a hypocrite, for more than one reason.

    The lack of sincerity would be detrimental to Linus’s Great Pumpkin theological viewpoint. The Great one only appears over the most sincere pumpkin patch.
