Just heard that today's paper holds the very last "Peanuts" cartoon, as Charles Schultz died in his sleep last night. Doesn't hardly seem possible that we won't be seeing Snoopy, Woodstock and all of the kids every morning. "Good grief, Charlie Brown" we love you and will miss you.

RIP, Mr. Schultz and thanks,

kat

Just read that article about Mr. Schultz's passing. How ironic that he died the day before his last strip was to run! We have always like the Peanuts strip and watched many of the Charlie Brown specials on the tube. Sure will miss it all...

I heard an interview--it occurred to Charles Schulz that he should let Charlie Brown actually kick the football just once, but then he sort of forgot during the run-up to the last strip.

Good grief indeed.

"Peanuts" was part of my life as far back as I can remember. My siblings nicknamed me Pigpen as I was somewhat less than kempt.

Adios, Charles Schultz

Hard to believe how many memories are tied up in a comic strip. "Peanuts" was a lot more, as are so many other greats of the comic world. The world is much greater for his being here.

A sad week this has been with the death of Jim Varney too. There's not enough humor in this world as it is.

Well guys, cheer up.

In about fifteen or eighteen years, a new cartoonist will start cracking them up and become the new Scott Adams.

I don't expect Mr Schulz will be able to stay out of the trade! :>)

I didn't realize that Jim Varney also had departed...

Good Grief, ain't many of us left, Ya know what I mean, Vern? As for not being enough humor left in this world, how about a brand new strip featuring the Mudcat Gang? Sort of a hybrid Pogo, Mary Worth, Hagar The Horrible and Grimmy all rolled into one! Heck, it's all here already, no need to make up any names. We have Catspaw, Cletus, RegX3, Cleigh O'Possum, and a cast of many more...what more do we need?

What a wonderful way to go. His son says that he was feeling great all week, and had a good day on Saturday. Sparky Schultz always said that he wanted to work until he died, only cancer got in the way. Well, it would appear that he got what he wanted after all. Way to go Sparky! Hope that we see you around the next time.

Amos...

Re: New Peanuts... It won't happen... Unless C.S. does come back... His family have it in his will that when he died, Peanuts ended...

I have to admit,and this may be a generation thing, but I only really endjoyed Peanuts when I was young... then they started to get really boring and repetative as I headed toward puberty... Kinda like Blondie...(the cartoon, not the band LOL!!) So I moved on to Dave Barry, Bill Watterson, Gary Larson and the like... 2 of which I have immense respect for, for having the balls to retire when the well was running dry...

Catch ya in the funny papers Charles! Now's yer chance to get a really good rest!
Tell Jim Henson I said "Hi!"

I was shocked he died the night before the last strip...hard to believe. I am glad I caught the tv specials with Charles Cronkite and the one on Nightline...

Peanuts was a big part of my life. My older brother collected the books of strips, he had literally dozens of them! (He also collected BC, Wizard of Id, and later Doonesbury). And one of my favorite childhood movie memories was going to see "Snoopy Come Home" and laughing and crying through the whole thing...

I played Lucy in a dinner theatre production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" in college. What was the role I was most remembered for in those four years by my peers and professors and audiences? Not The Maid in _The Bald Soprano_. Not Millie in _Picnic_. ? Not St. Joan. Not Rosalind. Lucy...

A difficult role, despite the show's simplicity. Lucy's songs are written in a very high range and sound silly when sung with soprano stylings. But hitting those notes was very hard cuz they fall right on most female singers' "break" between chest and head voice. I saw it once years earlier and was disappointed that Lucy coudl not cut the mustard, and when I was cast vowed I would deliver a Lucy with proper "yell factor" in her songs. I worked very hard to get a brassy, clear sound that never went into head voice. I had a whole month, fortunately, and only almost lost my voice once.

We had a great time doing that show. Since it was so simple and easy to memorize, we spent a fair amount of time playing around with it, even switching roles at rehearsal a few times. (playing Snoopy was fun!) Our Schroeder was actually a pianist, and, though it does not occur in the show, he learned the funky dance song by Vince Guaraldi and played it as our entrance music after intermission...the crowd went wild as we danced like the cartoon characters, or tried to...

i stopped reading the daily strip in recent years, because The Globe does not carry it. But I always loved running across old ones, or seeing the tv specials. I imagine there will now be a rush on Peanuts memorabilia...whch i have mixed feelings about. I must ask my brother if he still has all those books...

There was one strip I fondly remember. If I recall it was printed in Pete Seegers banjo instruction book. It shows Charlie and Linus talking and saying that "This world can be a scary place - If it was up to me they would give every new baby a banjo! "

I agree - and I'm glad we were given a Charles Schultz also.

Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree will no longer have anyone to love it. I plan to bring in a scrawny scrub tree next Christmas, in honor of Sparky, Charlie and the gang. Fare thee well and Rest In Peace. Jim

Folks will find this site interesting. Most of the cartoons were created as a response to Sparky's retirement announcement and now have meaning on a different level.
