That’s the way I was. History, couldn’t get enough. Math, I’d stick my fingers in my ears and say “LALALALALALA” until the nasty old numbers went away.

Wacky Packages and Mad Magazine. “How can you read that garbage? I shouldn’t let it in my house.”
Thus endeth my least favorite story arc. Did the rabbits kill Thompson of make him an offer he couldn’t refuse? The Twin Peaks of Peanuts story arcs.
Just what I thought. “Weakies” instead of Wheaties, “Minute Lice” instead of Minute Rice. My mother HATED Wacky Packages. That made them even more appealing to me.

This wasn’t my favorite story arc.
Been thinking about it and I’m fairly certain Schulz was a fan of the San Francisco Giants. He was very careful about never mentioning specific teams, other than Stumptown of the Green Grass league (Joe Shlabotnik’s team). But there was two strips in 1962 that show Chuck and Linus just sitting and in the final panel, CB screams “Why couldn’t McCovey hit the ball three feet higher” (two feet in the 2nd strip). A reference to Game 7 of the 1962 World Series. The Giants had runners on 2nd and 3rd w/two outs. HOFer Willie McCovey hit a shot that was speared by Yankees infielder Bobby Richardson, ending the game. If the hit had been two feet higher…
I thought (but can’t confirm) that Schulz was a part owner of the California Golden Seals, a now defunct NHL team He did design a mascot for the team (called “Sparky”, obviously) and there was at least one strip with a character (Franklin?) wearing a Seals shirt.
