December 17, 1950: Shermy?!

At last, Shermy-the-mystery-boy is named!  Notice that all four of the original characters have an "ee" sound at the end of their name: Charlie, Shermy, Patty, Snoopy.  While I appreciate that Schulz always thought the name "Peanuts" for his strip was unnecessarily trivializing, with names like that I don't think he was helping his case.

But then, it was the 50s.
