I bring this one up specifically because, next year, it's revealed that Charlie Brown is too young for school. In fact, a previous strip established that he's only four at this time! There's a sense in these early strips that the characters are not intended to have consistent stories, that they're more generalized stand-ins for types. This may derive from the characters' origins as cartoons for the Saturday Evening Post. No one asks who owns Thurber's dogs.
