Sketch done in the 1980’s by C.E. Pereira
Charlie Brown first appeared in the comic strip Peanuts on October 2, 1950. The lovable loser in the zig-zag t-shirt—the kid who never gives up (even though he almost never wins) is the creation of Charles Schulz.
“Charlie Brown must be the one who suffers, because he’s a caricature of the average person. Most of us are much more acquainted with losing than winning. Winning is great, but it isn’t funny.” – Charles Schulz
