November 7, 1950: Maww mcmaww mra-aww

A rare adult-spoken word balloon.  In television peanuts, these were usually presented as muted trumpet.
Also, this one makes it less obvious that Shermy is Snoopy's owner, although that impression gets reinforced later.  To be torn down again.  Really, it's hard to get a fix on Snoopy's owner until the strip starts to take its backstory more seriously.

  1. Hmm....I haven't seen this strip before. It's the first one I've ever seen where Charlie Brown was referred to as "Charlie," and I must have read a hundred Peanuts paperbacks. Has this happened elsewhere?
