About "Charles M. Schulz"

  1. Charles M. Schulz

    Charles Monroe Schulz was an American cartoonist, whose comic strip Peanuts proved one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, and is still widely reprinted on a daily basis.Schulz s first regular cartoons, Li l Folks, were published from 1947 to 1950 by the St Paul Pioneer Press he first used the name Charlie Brown for a character there, although he applied the name in four gags to three different boys and one buried in sand The series also had a dog that looked much like Snoopy In 1948, Schulz sold a cartoon to The Saturday Evening Post the first of 17 single panel cartoons by Schulz that would be published there In 1948, Schulz tried to have Li l Folks syndicated through the Newspaper Enterprise Association Schulz would have been an independent contractor for the syndicate, unheard of in the 1940s, but the deal fell through Li l Folks was dropped from the Pioneer Press in January, 1950.Later that year, Schulz approached the United Feature Syndicate with his best strips from Li l Folks, and Peanuts made its first appearance on October 2, 1950 The strip became one of the most popular comic strips of all time He also had a short lived sports oriented comic strip called It s Only a Game 1957 1959 , but he abandoned it due to the demands of the successful Peanuts From 1956 to 1965 he contributed a single panel strip Young Pillars featuring teenagers to Youth, a publication associated with the Church of God.Peanuts ran for nearly 50 years, almost without interruption during the life of the strip, Schulz took only one vacation, a five week break in late 1997 At its peak, Peanuts appeared in than 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries Schulz stated that his routine every morning consisted of eating a jelly donut and sitting down to write the day s strip After coming up with an idea which he said could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours , he began drawing it, which took about an hour for dailies and three hours for Sunday strips He stubbornly refused to hire an inker or letterer, saying that it would be equivalent to a golfer hiring a man to make his putts for him In November 1999 Schulz suffered a stroke, and later it was discovered that he had colon cancer that had metastasized Because of the chemotherapy and the fact he could not read or see clearly, he announced his retirement on December 14, 1999 Schulz often touched on religious themes in his work, including the classic television cartoon, A Charlie Brown Christmas 1965 , which features the character Linus van Pelt quoting the King James Version of the Bible Luke 2 8 14 to explain what Christmas is all about In personal interviews Schulz mentioned that Linus represented his spiritual side Schulz, reared in the Lutheran faith, had been active in the Church of God as a young adult and then later taught Sunday school at a United Methodist Church In the 1960s, Robert L Short interpreted certain themes and conversations in Peanuts as being consistent with parts of Christian theology, and used them as illustrations during his lectures about the gospel, as he explained in his bestselling paperback book, The Gospel According to Peanuts, the first of several books he wrote on religion and Peanuts, and other popular culture items.From the late 1980s, however, Schulz described himself in interviews as a secular humanist I do not go to church any I guess you might say I ve come around to secular humanism, an obligation I believe all humans have to others and the world we live in.

  1. Favorites include Charlie Brown playing marbles for keeps with Joe Agate in order to win Rerun s marbles back, and Snoopy winning the coloring book contest.


  2. The most interesting facet of this volume was the huge emphasis on Rerun After years of just riding on the back of his mother s bike, Schulz uses the character intensively There s a great running gag about Rerun wanting to play with Snoopy and a nice week s worth of strips of Sally preparing Rerun for school It s as if Schulz realized he needed a character younger than everyone else I also appreciated Charlie Brown s marbles duel a rare victory for him and the appearance of Spike in Snoopy s WWI [...]



  3. The humor from the earlier strips is beginning to wane However, many cute moments There is a whole lot of Rerun in this volume.


  4. Sigh Only two volumes still to come in this magnificent series When Schulz started the strip Harry Truman was president when he finished Bill Clinton Other than scope of time, that fact illustrates little about Peanuts, which illustrated much about the American culture at that time and, generally, our pursuit of happiness Por ejemplo Schroeder brings the ball to the mound, telling Charlie Brown, The bases are loaded again, and there s still nobody out Charlie Brown looks at his catcher and ask [...]


  5. Originally, I wasn t going to buy any other volume of this series after the 1975 1976 one It had always been my opinion that after the mid 70s, Schulz had lost his edge and Peanuts simply wasn t anywhere near as good as it used to be There is a different flavor and tenor to these post 76 strips, but that doesn t mean they aren t good or worth reading They very much are worthwhile It s just that Schulz was a different person in 1995 1996 than in 1975 1976 For instance, in the Seventies, if Schulz [...]


  6. We re coming into the home stretch of this series, and into a couple of years I remember fairly vividly Of course, I was too busy at school to read the daily comics but on the occasions I did, Peanuts was definitely my highest priority This was about the period I really discovered The Far Side too Reading this volume, I couldn t help but reflect back on a few storylines that relate to The Peanuts Movie, which I saw the day before I started the book It was great Not horrible like I expected It ex [...]


  7. A collection on par with the previous volume There s a definite a strong undercurrent of frustration and longing in these years and, curiously, many strips about World War I and II Schulz finally starts to develop Rerun as a character, especially when he starts kindergarten in the latter half of 96 This volume also features one of the funniest forwards of the series, written by members of the MST3K RiffTrax franchise This should not be your starting point for Peanuts, but if you re already a fan [...]


  8. I am now getting to the days when I met my wife and got married What surprises me about these latter comics is just how strong they are Sure, there is a lot of Spike and tapioca, but that is balanced by the young boy asking Sally to go to his church 11 19 95 as well as the emergence of Rerun I have collected these volumes since the first one in 2004 I approach Volumes 24 25 in a bittersweet way.


  9. At this point in his career, Schulz is still in great form No extended story lines during this two year run, but then he didn t have any periods in which he drove the same basic joke into the ground either, and the humor is still good enough to get me laughing out loud every once in a while.Pigpen and Violet make the occasional appearance still, but very rarely and only in crowd scenes.


  10. Was curious to see what happened in Peanutsland during the years when I was either too busy or too penny count poor to get and sit down with a newspaper every day Of special note is the intro written by the MST3K crew, complete with several selected strips given the quickfire riff treatment.


  11. I have all of the volumes in this Complete series This volume is much inconsistent than some of the others Certainly some great strips are included, but overall my reaction is eh I d give it a 2.5 if I could.
