Ennuipoet: I'm gonna say it: I never like Peanuts, not even as a kid. I never laughed and Charlie Brown seemed like a whiny biatch.And the Great Pumpkin? WTF?You may all now commence the Internet Stoning of the Heretic.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Opinions vary, and I respect yours.
OregonVet: Why does the black kid have to sit by himself?
Ennuipoet: That's because you sir, are a gentleman.
Ennuipoet: I don't know if I could be so genteel if someone said the same thing about Calvin and Hobbes.But then, I don't think anyone in the Universe dislikes Mr. Watterson.
make me some tea: Oh.Oh wow.I loved Peanuts as a kid, especially the ones from the '60s.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: The early 50s ones were interesting, since Schulz did a lot more with angles and neighborhood details back then. Then again, it was when the strip was still finding its feet, so that would explain it.
Ennuipoet: But then, I don't think anyone in the Universe dislikes Mr. Watterson.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Just by the Law of Averages (TM), there has to be somebody (or somebodies) who don't like Calvin & Hobbes or The Far Side.
timharrod: I actually know a guy- an intelligent, creative guy who has illustrating and comedy experience- who sniffs that C&H is just a retread of Winsor McCay's work.
timharrod: I think this may be his one indulgence in kneejerk contrarianism. I mean, after a certain number of decades, you're not stealing. You're bringing it back.
Ennuipoet: And the Great Pumpkin? WTF?
Lionel Mandrake: Spoiler Alert...Charlie Brown never gets to nail the Little Red-Haired Girl

GGracie: October 9, 1950Helping to promote the belief that all women, at any age, are money grubbing, selfish biatches.Damn you Charles Schultz!

MikeMc: The later Peanuts were crap. Now some of the early/mid run stuff is good. And surprisingly dark (Schulz had some major depression issues IIRC).
brantgoose: 07. The Black Kid? What are you a racist? He has a name, you know! (His name is Roosevelt. Say it!)
make me some tea: I also don't even get the joke in a lot of them.
LockeOak: make me some tea: I also don't even get the joke in a lot of them.Life sucks, each day is a new disappointment and we're all going to die? That seems to be the joke in most of them.
