Historical Facts About Peanuts

In 1950, Charles Schulz approached United Feature Syndicate with a set of cartoon strips which he called Li’l Folks. But the name was dropped because of other comics which had similar names at the time. Inspired by the Peanut gallery, from the Howdy Doody TV show, the syndicate chose the name Peanuts. Unfortunately, Charles Schulz felt this was totally ridiculous because he wanted a name that had dignity. Hence, many times, collections of strips were given titles such as “Charlie Brown” or “Snoopy”.

Charles Monroe Schulz

Charles Monroe Schulz ( November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000) was a 20th-century American cartoonist best known worldwide for his Peanuts comic strip.

On October 2, 1950, the first edition of Peanuts appeared in 9 newspapers including the Washington Post. It featured the star of the comic strip, Charlie Brown, and two of his friends Shermy and Patty. Charlie Brown had a unique personality which portrayed some of the challenges that Charles Schulz experienced as a child. These include meekness, nervousness, and fear. Humorously, Charlie Brown struggled with everything and hardly ever succeeded at anything he did. In fact after about fifty years of trying hard, he was still not able to “fly a kite” or “kick a football”.

As Peanuts gained more popularity among readers in America, it eventually became one of the most successful syndicated comic strips ever created. From October 2, 1950 till February 13, 2000, fresh editions appeared in the dailies and in Sunday newspapers. This was equivalent to a total of 17,897 editions. It was the longest humorous, fictional story ever told by a single human being. By February, 2000, Peanuts appeared in over 2,600 newspapers and magazines in over 70 nations with at least 350 million readers.

Peanuts was also a success on television, with the TV specials being awarded the 4th best TV cartoon series of all time by TV Guide. The outstanding success of Peanuts earned Charles Schulz about $1 billion income and several prestigious awards including the Reuben award in 1955 and 1964 and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mr. Schulz passed on in February 2000, at the age of 78, a few weeks after announcing his retirement. But Peanuts is still being rerun today in thousands of newspapers in America and many other countries in various parts of the world. An animated TV show based on this strip is expected to be released in November 2015.
