About the Author
Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic strip debuted in 1950 and went on to become the most widely read comic strip in the world, with an audience of 355 million people in 75 countries. It ran in 2,600 newspapers and was published in 21 languages. PEANUTS is one of the most beloved entertainment brands of all time, and is a unique force across all media-newspaper, television, video, music, books, web, and theater.
PEANUTS boasts an indelible cast of characters, including Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, and Good Ol' Charlie Brown. More than 18,000 comic strips celebrate numerous themes (holidays & sports), countless poses (Snoopy lying on top of his doghouse), and well-known expressions ("Good grief!") that have become a part of the American vocabulary.
