Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The latest chronological Peanuts volume includes the debut of one of the strip's most beloved recurring devices, Snoopy donning the goggles of a World War I fighting ace and battling the Red Baron, thereby putting his canine nature quite behind him. Here, too, is the maiden appearance of the strip's most successful "second generation" cast member, brash tomboy Peppermint Patty, who lives across town but would become an integral member of the troupe. Flagg, Gordon


By this point, Schulz's always-appealing artwork has been pared to perfection, and yet he would make it simpler still in decades to come. -- Booklist

One can scarcely overstate the importance of Peanuts to the comics, or overstate its influence on all of us. -- Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

This is another transitional 2 years in Peanuts (with cartoons that appeared in You Need Help, Charlie Brown, The Unsinkable Charlie Brown and You'll Flip, Charlie Brown). Sally has lazy eye and has to wear an eye patch (which Snoopy often steals to play pirates, until he gets "scuttled" by Captain Sally). A bird who has trouble flying (he still has yet to make his formal debut, but he still looks like Woodstock) flies on Snoopy's nose ("Good grief, the return of the native!"). Snoopy debuts 2 of his alter ego's- a novel writer ("It was a dark and stormy night...") and the World War I Flying Ace ("Curse you, Red Baron and this stupid war!"). Charlie Brown watches in bemusement and thinks "Some people have dogs who chase cars, some people have dogs who bite the mailman... I think MY dog has finally flipped!" Lucy is the arm-wrestling champion on her block (later used in It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown), but can she withstand the paw of the Masked Marvel? Charlie Brown tries his hand (or foot) again with the football with a new twist up his own sleeve. Also, he has to endure dandelions on his pitcher's mound is covered with dandelions, which Frieda and Lucy beg him not to cut because he looks so cute up there with them (even Schroeder agrees). Snoopy falls in love with a dog on the beach and tries to impress her with his surfing skills. The next winter, he's still not over her and tries to forget through... eating, what else? Also Snoopy's doghouse gets burned down (Schulz got a lot of sympathy cards in real life on behalf of the beagle!). Also, Linus and Lucy move away (later used in Is This Goodbye, CB?) and Schroeder reluctantly admits he misses her (he sees her face by the piano long after her demise and thinks "Don't tell me I've grown accustomed to THAT face!").Read more ›

With this volume of The Complete Peanuts we see Charles M. Schulz's world in full flower. The main characters are in their prime, particularly Snoopy, who at long last climbs into his Sopwith Camel and takes off after the Red Baron. We also see the introduction of Peppermint Patty, an inspired addition to the neighborhood. She's wise and clueless at the same time, rendering her a fit companion for "Chuck", "Lucille" and "the Funny Looking Kid with the Big Nose." In this volume we also see the first appearances of some favorite neuroses, especially queen snakes and kite eating trees. As always, some of the best strips include references to current events in the news and entertainment during 1965 and 1966, such as Schroeder's groaning "don't tell me "I've grown accustomed to THAT face!" after realizing he misses Lucy during her family's brief move away from town. (Funny to think that Schroeder took time to see "My Fair Lady" in between practicing Beethoven on his toy piano.) But its also nice that we see little or no hint of the truly disturbing assassinations, wars, riots, and other traumas which raged during those two years: Schulz realized his readers needed a little escapism every now and then.

This volume is a particular favorite of mine since it includes the strips that I first remember reading on my own at the age of 8 and 9 in the daily paper. Having the date of each strip clearly established helps me recreate my own early years and also leads to some intriguing discoveries, including that Sally Brown and I had amblyopia at precisely the same time! (She got away with wearing an eye patch, but I had to have surgery!)

This volume also includes all of the original Snoopy vs Red Baron strips that eventually were dramatized in "Its The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

One can get into a lively debate as to whether the mid-60s represented the peak of PEANUTS in an aesthetic sense. It would be hard to argue the point, however, that the period during which this latest clutch of strips appeared saw Charles Schulz "in tune" with pop culture to a degree that he had never been before and would never be again. Snoopy's debut as the "famous World War I flying ace" is only the tip of the salient (to borrow a term from WWI's far less glamorous trench warfare). Schulz's creation of Peppermint Patty caught the mood of the times as well. PP was a character unlike any Schulz had ever devised: smart-alecky, self-confident (at least on the surface), and cocky. Schulz was wise to use her as a "special guest star" for as long as he did; it gave him time to fashion the foibles and flaws that would ultimately give PP her hard-won status as a full-fledged member of the PEANUTS universe. As an occasional walk-on, PP is nothing less than dynamite.

Though PEANUTS DID become more "commercial" during this time (I blame one of those "big Eastern syndicates" Lucy always talked about), the bittersweet tone of the late 50s and early 60s continued to form the background music of the strip. Snoopy's ill-fated romance with a girl beagle (who wore a bikini on the beach???) is a very heartfelt sequence. In a strip that I don't believe had ever been reprinted until now, Snoopy actually faces the audience and asks them to "wish [him] luck" as he prepares to pop the question. Charlie's crash-and-burn in the school spelling bee (which later inspired the plot of the feature film A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN), Snoopy's doghouse's destruction by fire, and the Van Pelt's aborted move out of the neighborhood are also featured here; each continuity has its share of painful moments.
