Rik01: His closest friend, Schroder, basically stood by as Charlie was humiliated again and again and rarely, if ever, rose to his defense.


I'd like to see how brave you would get if you were the only gay kid at hydrocephalus camp, and you were being stalked by a manic depressive b*tch with a libido complex?

I did't realize Schultz wrote about internal server errors in 1954. He was really ahead of his time.

July 29, 1956.

/My favourite Peanuts strip.
//Is Charlie looking at us in the last panel?  Is Linus satisfied with his solution?
///Pretty sure a sexual politics/gender issues class could spend a month on this.

Lor M. Ipsum: Wow, the Jan 19 1954 strip has to be the first time that Peanuts made me laugh out loud


You sound old.

I think that's the most casually condescending comment I've ever read on Fark, and I've written a lot of condescending shiat over the years.

I enjoyed Charlie better after he returned from Japan


Nah, he was still sad and pathetic even in Japanese.

Darth_Lukecash: craigdamage: Yeah, my memory is clouded. Schroeder was Brown's "2nd best friend after Linus" according to wiki.

I honestly can't remember that many panels with the two of them together.

sorry.

Schroeder was In the early days, especially with the baseball. He was the catcher to Charlie's pitcher.

Little known fact: the original Snoopy died in 1957 and was subsequently played by female dogs for the next 50 years.

Rik01: Never liked the 'Peanuts' comic strip.
Even as a kid, it didn't take me long to notice that Charlie Brown, the level headed, thoughtful and kind kid was made the butt of all of the nasty jokes, humiliated, taunted and ridiculed.

Even his dog turned against him in later years, mocking him periodically.

His closest friend, Schroder, basically stood by as Charlie was humiliated again and again and rarely, if ever, rose to his defense.

I've never understood the over all public fondness for the strip. I thought 'Pogo' was better. (Look it up.)

Every holiday special they had Charlie Brown being blamed for a myriad of things and then, at the end, after being chastised and ridiculed, he pulls it all together and not one of his friends even thanks him.

Lucy I wanted desperately for Charlie Brown to smack in the mouth.
The moral of the strip seemed to be that 'nice guys finish last'. None of his friends ever learned how reliable and loyal Charlie was.

By the time I was in my 20's, I no longer watched even the specials.

I much preferred Calvin and Hobbs or Hagar the Horrible.

I can understand why the kids disliked Charlie Brown. Always writing on the walls, always goofing in the halls, always throwing spit balls...

Tyrone Slothrop: Mmmmm, no. Pogo was better than nearly any comic strip out there. Little Nemo, Far Side, and Calvin and Hobs are the only ones that could compete.


The accusation of condescension came from the OP assuming we hadn't heard of Pogo.

Also, you forgot Krazy Kat in your list (look it up).

Wait a minute. Did he shoot her, go around get blood, paint the "OUT" and then get back out front for a pose? It makes no sense!

(I smirked.)


If you read Weapon Brown, you'll realize he made her watch while he painted "OUT" in her own blood, and THEN shot her.

xkcd does have some funny strips, but quite a sizeable amount of them feel like comic strips for pedants; it's what i imagine Grammar Nazis humor themselves with.
