This is something I posted on my deviantart dot com profile last year. I confess: I in fact mostly just skimmed through the comics, so some details may be missing or off. Anyhoo, much has happened since three years ago when I ended my fanfic writing career and rediscovered Peanuts. The comic and its cartoon specials have nagged at my attention quite a lot for some time, until last night when I truly found other things to occupy my time. (Make of that last bit what you will.) I don't know about the rest of you, but given Peanuts' iconic significance, I feel like I'm just letting Schulz and company's problems be my own problems, and it's holding me back from my true goals. But since the future isn't set in stone, I'll just say you probably won't see me around this section of fanfiction dot net ever again. I'll stay at this website a bit longer, but I'll most likely just ignore the Peanuts section like I used to.

When I got to the strip for Feb. 6th, I decided to stop looking through EVERY strip since it took too much time. No wonder nobody remembers the early years that well. Charles Schulz was obviously still experimenting at this point, meaning he could and felt the need to turn anything into a strip no matter how pointless or random it seemed. And given the time period, amongst other details, I'm willing to bet he wasn't the ONLY one doing so. With that said, many of these early strips would be considered tiresome fillers by more recent standards. This was my next lesson in the process of reviewing a given series.

7/16/2012 #10

Eventually, I did away with the Peanuts Report because it was taking too long and I had other things I wanted to do. But I put down a reminder about a certain strip from 1961:

December 10, 1961: Lucy, Violet, and Patty prepare to gang up on Charlie for unknown reasons, but his calm, kind words convince them to change their minds.


Random points:

June 17, 1963: Frieda DID wear a hat sometimes in the comics.

2-16-1967: Woo hoo! Finally, something truly memorable! Sally. Hugs. Charlie. This shall go down in history if it hasn't already.

Missed moment of awesome for Peanuts, as usual: 1-29-1973 through 2-17-1973

3-31-1974: That gag where a baseball knocks off most of Charlie's clothes? This was the closest to a gender-bent example that I could find.

After finishing 1974, I think I understand why some people deem the Mr. Sack storyline the end of Peanuts. The storylines are starting to get more ridiculous and disturbing: said storyline itself; talking schools; and yes, Rerun's moments on the back of his mother's bicycle with major risks of death.

However, I'll give the time period THIS much: Marcie knows how ta tell it like it is, contrasting all those before her (namely the other girls) who just come off as jerks. Neon-Ronin was right: Maybe SHE oughta be the neighborhood psychiatrist.

3-27-1976: I think this strip is where many people got the idea of Peanuts teaching them to feel better about themselves because someone else has it worse.Too bad not everybody got the message (that's sarcasm, BTW).

Finished 1976. Holidays, including Christmas, are getting meaner for poor Charlie. He just wants ta earn some money to buy gifts, and no one'll hire him? Well, there goes the pleasantness of the first special, right out the window.

Also, Marcie seems to have garnered her own sadistic streak. Poor Floyd. Maybe he was too direct,

8-17-1977 = Proof that Schulz could turn anything into a strip no matter how mundane

8-27-1977 = Schulz' downward spiral into secular humanism?

10-23-1977 = Good point, Sally. Good point.

Also, on a side note, the drawings and writings have gotten bigger. At least, I THINK they have.

More random points:

12-22-1978: Tender moment with the Brown siblings; first time "poor sweet baby" is used in a non-romantic context

4-13-1980 and 4-20-1980: Deleted scenes from that golf caddy storyline with PP and Marcie

4-20-1980: The basis for Flashbeagle?

7-10-1983: Aside from Floyd, I'm guessing THIS must be when Marcie's character started going downhill.

7-24-1983: Potential date between Linus and Sally. Too bad a slight known as status quo ruined it.

Also, the preceding story arc must be deleted scenes from that one time when PP saw the LRHG and cried at the latter's "prettiness".

All the rest:

11-29-1983 Flashbeagle!

6-17-1984: Flashbeagle, Spike isn't.

12-5-1985 - Schroeder states that he never said he hated Lucy....yeah, I'm bored, too.

2-18-1989: Yep; just like the news to talk about all that's wrong with the world.

12-3-1992: Okay, that's kind of amusing.

3-10-1994: Finally. And you say only boys can be immoral?

8-20-1994: Finally. Again.

6-13-1999: So Charlie wasn't the only one after all; he had some company. Still hate that gag.

7/16/2012 #11

One more thing, to whom it may concern:

I understand some people have had their fics reviewed by yours truly. Those things are just how I felt about those stories and more, and so I apologize if I came off as abrasive.
