On October of 1950, Charles Schultz lunched the first Peanuts comic strip and it appeared in seven newspapers such as The Chicago Tribune, The Seattle times, The Washington Post, The Denver Post and others.
Charles Schultz was born on November 26, 1922. He spent most of his life drawing comics and the Peanuts comic strip length for years. Schultz was diagnosed with Colon cancer and he retired on December 1999, dying two months later on February 12, 2000.
The last Peanuts comic strip appeared on February 13th, 2000, but the Peanuts characters extended to nearly every medium such as TV, theater and the film industry wining a lot of prizes as 'The Emmy Award' and two 'Tony Awards'.
Some of the characters of Peanuts comic strip were Charlie Brown, who appeared for the first time in 1950, as well as Snoopy, Shermy, and Patty.
In 1951 Schroeder and Violet were welcomed to the Peanuts comic strip, in 1952 Lucy and Linus showed up in the comic strip and five years later in 1959 Sally became part of this family as well.
Just like those characters some others were added to the Peanuts comic strip through the years.
The famous Woodstock became a part of the comic in 1967. Woodstock is one of the most important characters in the Peanuts comic strip as Snoopy best friend. He is just a little bird who is there for Snoopy to play and help him. Woodstock communicates with the rest of the characters with his bird talk that is shown in the Peanuts comic strip with exclamation points.
It's incredibly amazing how these characters evolved and developed over the lifetime of this strip.
Charlie Brown and his friends also appeared in comic books even when Superman and Captain America were the stars of this medium.
There is no doubt that the Peanuts comic strip was a great hit in Schultz's career.
