It occurred to me that I had first seen Charlie Brown from The Peanuts Gang depicted on a painted rock, before I came across yesterday’s discovery of Linus and Snoopy. I began to wonder if the bench near my Sun City Peachtree home would soon have their pals smiling up at me from painted rocks as well.
Last night, Bruce and I tried to remember all of The Peanuts Gang: Charlie Brown and his little sister, Sally; Beethoven-loving pianist, Schroeder; Linus and big sister Lucy; Peppermint Patty and her friend, Marcie; Franklin; Snoopy and his little yellow pal, Woodstock; Snoopy’s brother, Spike; and, then, who could forget Pig-Pen? We actually remembered only nine of the characters; Wikipedia helped me with the rest.
Today, I returned to the bench, and there she was; Peppermint Patty waving hello! She was keeping Linus and Snoopy company. So, who will be next? Stay tuned…
I love the Peanuts characters! That was one of my favorite cartoon strips. Years ago I went to my hometown Little Theater’s production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (or whatever the name of it was). The guy who played Snoopy stole the show!
Me, too! I watched all of the Peanuts specials on TV, and I loved reading the cartoon strips– especially on Sunday when they were in color!
