Never in the strip. In one Peanuts special it was Johnson, and in The Peanuts Movie it was Carlin. But neither of those are canon, of course.
It’s the hat the boys in Peanuts wear whenever they take a trip, usually to camp. Roy wore his hat almost every time he appeared, I’m guessing to indicate he was “Roy from camp.” (And yes, it’s supposed to be white.)
Kevin may want top billing in the act.
I wonder if Worm School was a prerequisite for Eagle Camp.
Yes, he built it in the late 60s in Santa Rosa. It has public skating and hosts a senior hockey tournament each summer that Schulz started in the 70s. It’s known as “Snoopy’s Home Ice.”

Schulz and Peggy Fleming were good friends, as she was one of the well known figure skaters who performed in some of the shows he produced at his ice rink.
The boss is more annoyed that his employee thinks he has a giant head than he is about Heathcliff stealing a fish.
If Charlie Brown is pitching, you know any baseball is going to take a beating. . .
There are quite a few standard symbols in comics speech, but I bet Schulz invented this one.
