Take That!

1st peanuts strip

snoopy's 1st appearance

A more confident Charlie Brown

Charles Schulz, started the Peanuts after a brief run of his previous comic Lil Folks in his Local newspaper. Lil folks became secondary after Schulz asked for a move of the strip from the ladies section of the paper to the funnies page and a raise, which the publisher refuse to make happen. This caused Charles to focus his attention on the growth of an entire new cast of characters, starring Good Ol' Charlie Brown. The first strip was published on October 2nd 1950 until February 13th 2000 (the day after Schulz's Death) The evolution of the characters gradually took place as Charles Schulz began to understand the characters and the roles they held in the strip.
