Who Do You Think You Are, Charlie Brown? by Charles M. SchulzPeanuts is the most popular comic strip in the history of the world. Who Do You Think You Are Charlie Brown? is the first volume of a collection of Peanuts cartoons from the nineteen-sixties. Life isnt always easy for Charlie Brown. Between that pesky kite-eating tree, a complete lack of valentines in his mailbox and his troubles on the pitchers mound, it can be downright disheartening! Fortunately he has Snoopy, Linus, Peppermint Patty and the Peanuts Gang to make the big world seem a lot friendlier.

When we look at the gang from the Peanuts comic strips or watch their television specials there are plenty of lessons on leadership, friendship, and Biblical lessons gleaned from the always quirky group of pals. We see this in a Charlie Brown Christmas, where Linus explained the first Christmas to Charlie Brown who is concerned that there would be no one to share what Christmas is all about. Linus then started to proceed and read from the Book of Luke about the birth of Christ. Luke 2: "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
The Peanuts characters are among the most iconic kids in American culture, right up there with the March sisters and Tom Sawyer. But kids, really? He created them to be funny, and to act out what became a deeply personal theater of cruelty. But it is kids, real or unreal, that he put front and center, and it is kids who have been among his most avid readers, my own younger self very much included. I know I did.
On the morning of Sunday, February 13, , newspaper readers opened their comic pages as they had for nearly fifty years to read the latest adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang. This Sunday was different, though; mere hours before newspapers hit doorsteps with the final original Peanuts comic strip, its creator Charles M. Paul, where Carl worked as a barber. Throughout his youth, father and son shared a Sunday morning ritual reading the funnies; Sparky was fascinated with strips like Skippy , Mickey Mouse , and Popeye. He took his artistic studies to a new level when, as a senior in high school and with the encouragement of his mother, he completed a correspondence cartoon course with the Federal School of Applied Cartooning now Art Instruction Schools. As Schulz continued to study and hone his artistic style from the late s through the s, the genre of comic art experienced a great shift.
