Peanuts were created by Charles Schulz. He created
the entire Peanuts gang of characters in 1952.
That's almost exactly 50 years of Snoopy and
Charlie Brown. I grew up reading the comic books
in the eighties. It blew me away how the themes
in the Schulz' comic strip fit well for children
and adults. Sometimes I still catch myself getting
a taste of his adult humor.
of the cool things I remember from the peanuts
television specials were the voices of adults
in the cartoon. Whenever they would speak, we
would always hear, wa wa wa in a strange trumpet
sound. I always thought that was neat..
