63 Years of Peanuts


Peanuts, an American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, made its first appearance 63 years ago on 2 Oct 1950.

Arguably the longest story ever told by one human being, the last strip was published on 14 Feb 2000.

The first strip showed Charlie Brown walking by two other young children, Shermy and Patty, where Shermy lauds Charlie Brown as he walks by, but then tells Patty how he hates him in the last panel.


Snoopy was also an early character in the strip, first appearing in the third strip on 4 Oct 1950.
