PEANUTS by Charles Schulz: October 2, 1950

The syndicate sales pitch for PEANUTS was that the strip was simple-looking (able to withstand shrinking and still be legible). It was also stackable. In other words, the layout person at the newspaper could run it as a strip, a tall column, or stack it, like the above.

Form aside, today it's PEANUTS 63rd anniversary. A strip that is perhaps the most famous comic strip. It's all due to its creator, Charles Schulz, and his ability to draw warmth and humor from life. But you don't need me to say that. You already know.

Happy birthday, Charlie Brown!
