I t really was a dark and stormy night. On February 12, , Charles Schulz—who had single-handedly drawn some 18, Peanuts comic strips, who refused to use assistants to ink or letter his comics, who vowed that after he quit, no new Peanuts strips would be made—died, taking to the grave, it seemed, any further adventures of the gang. It had been going for five decades. Schulz hated and resented the name Peanuts , which was foisted on him by United Feature Syndicate. Why was this comic strip so wildly popular for half a century?

All of us strike out in the ninth or arrive at the party on the wrong day, and nobody ever really works up the courage to talk to the little red-haired girl.
