When Franklin was first introduced, he mentioned his father was serving in Vietnam. After that he occasionally mentioned his grandfather in conversations with Charlie Brown.
I like the panel in that strip where Charlie Brown is standing outside in the light coming out of the shop.
He’s clearly having some fun with that fact here.
No, P. Patty’s mother or what happened to her is never mentioned, I don’t think even in any of the animation.
Yes, it’s a great arc. Rather silly, even by Peanuts standards, but still great.
Heathcliff did not land on his feet . . .

No doubt Sally’s enthusiasm will be short-lived . . .
Maybe Schulz could remember a time when it wasn’t, since he was born almost 100 years ago and wrote this strip almost 50 years ago.
And awaaaay we go!!!
