RANDOM TIDBITS

One of the initial themes Charles Schulz set out to explore in Peanuts was the cruelty that exists among children. Lucy was an example of that, and her most heartless behavior was usually directed toward Charlie Brown or Linus.

***

In 1934, the Schulz family was given a black and white dog they named Spike. The terrier impressed the family with his wild ways and intelligence-he could understand about 50 words. Spike would later become the inspiration for Snoopy.

***

Schulz got the idea for Pigpen from a friend in Colorado who sometimes referred to his children by unusual names, one of them being Pigpen.

***

Sally was the first character to have her birth recorded in Peanuts; she entered the strip in 1959 as Charlie Brown's little sister.

***

Schulz considered Peppermint Patty - inspired by a dish of candy and introduced in 1966 - a character that could "almost carry another strip by herself."

***

Over time, Schulz began to draw a gaggle of birds in his strip. One of those birds began to stand out and was named Woodstock - after the Woodstock Festival - on June 22, 1970.
