The 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.
