5 Things You Didn’t Know About…Peanuts

Oct 03, 2018 | 5 Things...

As we settle into fall and approach the holiday season, one thing comes to mind: my beloved tradition of settling in and watching the classic Peanuts holiday specials. It’s true that happiness is a warm puppy…and also the sweet and smart humor of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy, thanks to the genius of Charles M. Schulz.

In honor of one of our all-time favorite comics and comic strips, here are 5 facts about the Peanuts gang that may surprise you!

For more on Charles Schulz and the Peanuts gang, we recommend:

The Complete Peanuts and My Life with Charlie Brown, by Charles M. Schulz

Peanuts, a Tribute to Charles M. Schulz, featuring the art of Matt Groening, Raina Telgemeier and others.

We also recommend getting lost in the Children’s Room J Graphic Schulz section, featuring all of the Peanuts comics you could ever ask for.
